Does TOM knock us out of ketosis?

As I am Dukan, I don't spend all my time in ketosis--at the weekend I have veggies and low fat dairy, but during the week I am 100% protein and I notice by the tell-tale bad breath (which I am secretly glad to see lol) that i am in ketosis. However, last week no matter what I tried I never got into ketosis and had nice breath... Hah and I was menstruating at the time.

So what are your experiences with TOM and ketosis?

I have the same question.I just started low carbing a few days ago.Yesterday I showed I was in a low state of ketosis and this morning when I checked it is medium to high but TOM showed up today.
So I was wondering if my urine test might have become "tainted" showing me false response.
