The presence of ketones (acetoacetic acid) in the urine is an indication of how your body metabolizes fat.   Both diabetics and persons on high-protein/low-carbohydrate diets may wish to test their urine for ketones on a daily basis. The ketone urine reagent test is based on the reaction of acetoacetic acid with sodium nitroprusside in a strongly basic medium.  The colors range from from beige or buff-pink color for a "negative" reading to a pink/pink-purple for a "positive" reading.  The ketone test provides semi-quantitative results and reacts with acetoacetic acid in urine  Normally, no ketones are found in the urine.   In low carbohydrate metabolism situations, ketones appear in the urine in large amounts before serum ketones are elevated. The reagent detects as little as 5-10 mg/dl acetoacetic in urine.

What are Ketones?

Ketones are produced as a byproduct of protein or fat metabolism.  Some studies suggest that small amounts of ketones are used by the brain as a "food."   We know that hunger is suppressed by moderate levels of ketones.  Ketones can also be produced during periods of stress such as pregnancy or frequent strenuous exercise.
