Deanna, Thank you for sharing! I had not seen this yet. My dad had a heart-attack about 6 or 7 yrs ago. I've been trying to encourage him to stay Wheat free and dump the statins, but he isn't that interested. Couldn't get him to read Grain Brain either. He stayed on WB about 8 months and lost 12lbs, which is all he really needed. I think he has packed on at least 3 to 4 lbs. Hoping I can convince him to reread WB. The Technology is very interesting, but I don't want him to have to use it in the 1st place. Heart-disease runs in our family send I hope it stops with me!

Thanks for that post Deanne.....it will be interesting to see what kind of apps will be available on our phones in the future! I've heard that there is a bloodless glucose meter in the works.....

I just got a Ketonix, which is a breath ketone
analyzer.  I've used it several times in the last
few days.  No blood sticks, no extra cost, charges
off the computer.


This is the future, for sure.

I just checked out the Ketonix...sounds great bill.


scrupulous, hope your dad gets back on WB!


I wish they'd do a bloodless INR (re blood thinner).

I had read about this but hadn't seen it in action.  Thanks for sharing.

Bill,
How do your ketonix outcomes compare with the blood ketone meter tests? Are they consistent? It would sure be worth it to stop pricking my finger!

That's how I feel about the INR Jan...the bloodless glucose meter would be helpful too.

These devices would be so wonderful to carry on a phone.  I wonder how drs will feel about them poaching on the drs godlike presearve? How great for a diabetic to be able to discreetly check their glucose at a restaurant, etc.

Jan:


I had a friend try it.  She does the finger stick to
check her ketones often. 


The Ketonix has four levels, blue, green, yellow
and red.  Those are low to high.


She blew green on the Ketonix and then checked
with the blood stick and it was .3, which she says
is low.  She usually is between 2 and 3.  .3 is just
barely into ketosis.


From what I understand, the Ketonix people want
to compile a lot of data to effectively calibrate the
units.  I think this technology will get better fast.


As an aside, her husband, who is not into this
WOE, blew a blue, which is basically not in
ketosis.  We pretty much knew that before he
tried.


I don't do blood sticks.  Ain't gonna happen.

Bill,
Thanks for the feedback. In the meantime, I did find this site/person who has been doing some comparisons....http://bjjcaveman.com/2014/03/15/ketonix-review/


You're right, with refinements, the ketonix may be much less invasive....I may have to get one and chart my readings.....I am really tired of my fingers looking like pin cushions!
