Default Ketonix breath analyzer ..

I think this is the name. Measures ketones through your breath. Has anyone tried it, and if so, is it reliable compared to blood ketone testing?

It's not on the market yet. I hope it arrives soon. This is the inventor's second try to get it produced. Abbot had his design but declined to manufacture it. He's now working with others.

Default hello sir.....

there are a couple of bloggers I have seen who are using them and running experiments. I wonder how they got theirs. Someone mentioned costing 100 dollars. See the links below for ketonix and trials.

If it does make it to the market and still costs $100, it may be well worth it for those that use blood ketone testing, given the outrageous price of blood ketone test strips.
