Alternative Site Testing (for β-Ketone Test)
In addition to using your fingertips, you can test on your palms.
This alternative is not intended for cross-matching fingertip results. Bear in mind: food, medication, illness, stress and exercise are all factors that may affect ketone levels.
Capillary blood at the fingertip reflects changes in the bodies physiology more rapidly than capillary blood from other sites. This is precisely why it is the endorsed zone to use.
Important: There are limitations with AST (Alternative Site Testing). Please consult your health care professional before you perform Alternative Site Testing.
