    Had no idea they did that.. do you usually get strips along with the reader and inserts?
    Mine doesn't have any.

    You don't have to test for measuring ketones, if you have a reliable glucometer, you can work with that.
    It's only if you have abnormal ketones readings on your annual tests.

    Stay safe

    Yes, I've used the reader with both glucose and ketone test strips when I have been wearing a sensor.
