I don't see the point of spending the money on them. I seem to remember asking the pharmacy about them and was told they were around $20.00. I think if you are following IP 100% and losing, what's the point. Just my opinion but why spend even more money.

I feel the Ketosticks can be great tool for those just entering Ketosis. But they are pretty useless once we become fully keto adaptive. Because by then it is possible that what ketones we are creating are burned right up pretty effeciently without having to be excreted through the urine. So in this case, the stix may show a false zero level of ketones, which may be discouraging to some people and cause them to think the diet is not working which in fact it is actually working superbly!
