68955-4Ketones [Presence] in Blood by TabletDiscouraged
- Our understanding is the tablets for this test are no longer being manufactured.
This term was originally created (but not limited in use) for the Acetest manufactured by Bayer HealthCare. It applies to tests done by the nitroprusside method on whole blood that primarily measures acetoacetate but cross reacts with acetone. So about 10% of the amount reported could be acetone. It will not detect betahydroxybuturate. These tests are usually named "ketones", so we stayed with that name though admit it is a slight misnomer because they don't detect all ketones.

Ketones levels are used to diagnose diabetic ketoacidosis when diabetic patients, who cannot use sugar, will use fat instead, thus leading to the formation of ketones. Source: Regenstrief Institute
