urine test

During my physical the urine test showed 1.01 ketones. My best guess is that this is a slight elevation but considered normal as doctor did not think it significant.

What level would be considered ketosis on a doctor's office urine test? All the info I have found relates to the home use strips.

I imagine that the test was a dip stick - the same or similar to what you would use at home.

My doctor's office uses the same system as Ketostix. I had to remind my doctor that ketones were a good thing the first few times after I went back on plan.

What I have read indicates that up to 1.06 indicates moderate ketosis. I am surprised that I was in this range as I eat probably between 60-100 net carbs most days. I do supplement with coconut cream daily so perhaps that is the reason ketones were higher than expected.

You are lucky. Most people have to be below 50g. But don't forget that ketosis can be transitory. And yes, c.o. can and will raise ketones.

Heidenem - could also be time of day. If this was a urine sample, was your appointment in the morning - had you consumed anything earlier in the day?

No, it was a test in the mid morning and I ate a pretty high fat breakfast. I am really pleased about the ketone level. I worry about Alzheimer's prevention. I am insulin resistant so of course I worry about "diabetes of the brain"!
