Acetone breath Reader?

Postby Richard McG » Sun Aug 09, 2020 1:10 pm

Not really getting into on this finger pricking daily or multiple times a day..... :o

Just wondering could I supplement with an Acetone Breath Reader? If so any recommendations friends?

Looking at this one on amazon....

Any advice would be very much appreciated. Stay safe.

Julie just talked about this in her recent interview with Dr Bredesen, you might want to take a listen.

Richard, I've had a Ketonix for 5 or so years. Things I've learned. BHB is the storage form of ketones, acetone generally represents actual real time production of acetoacetate. The founder of Ketonix has adult onset epileptic seizures and discovered that seizure control was better correlated with acetone levels than BHB. Years ago, I linked a graph here (now broken link) that showed how BHB would increase over time on a water fast, while acetone was relatively constant. This being said, the Ketonix meter sensor will react to ethanol, methane as well as acetone. So drinking alcohol can impact the reading. So can eating a high resistant starch (fiber) diet (methane from gut bugs). As this is what I eat, I found the readings fairly meaningless, unless I was water fasting. I emailed the biosense folks about this last night and will report their answers when they respond. I know Julie also eats a high fiber diet, so the biosense may handle this.

From the Biosense team: ". Our sensor does respond to ethanol and methanol but not methane."
