You NEVER want to be in keto acidosis. That is dangerous

We aim for Ketosis, which some can measure by ketostix. Most of us find them useless due to inconsistent test results...mostly due to the amt of water we consume but also due to how quickly our bodies acclimate to burning off the ketones (rather than excreting them in urine)

I say save your money.
