The Precision Xtra® from Abbott Diabetes Care is the only meter that tests for both blood glucose and blood ketones.
Checking for blood ketones has many advantages over checking for urine ketones. Not only is it less messy than urine ketone test strips, but more importantly, it provides an accurate and current reading of blood ketones. Urine testing reports on previous ketone levels whereas blood testing reports on current ketone levels.
