Thanks so much everyone for your responses and support! Both my husband and I have continued to re-check our ketone levels, and the results are consistently WAY different (i.e. .3 and then 1.6, less than a minute later.) I contacted KM and ended up purchasing a tiny bottle of "Control Solution" for $20.00. It is supposed to be used to test your meter so you know that it is giving accurate results. I just received the control solution and it has a test range of 1.8 - 3.0. That seems to be too wide a variance to test a meter for accuracy! I am now finding postings on KETO websites from others who have expressed similar concerns. I have relied so heavily on these meter results to help guide my diet and the amount of carbs/fats/protein that I eat. Being in nutritional ketosis is such an important part of this program and I'm not sure how to proceed. I haven't been very successful in just using my physical symptoms to tell if I'm in ketosis.
Hmm, I find this disturbing as well. On of the reasons I've recommended Keto-Mojo is because of it's supposed accuracy on lower BHB readings. Have you reacted out to them with your concerns? I've met with the creator, he'd want to know about this. I've previously polled our members on this topic and generally received assurance that folks thought the readings were accurate. FWIW, I use the Precision Xtra and feel pretty certain that I can trust the readings. I've never gotten the wild swings that you're talking about.
