I’d thought one of the symbols in green, yellow, and red on the outside of the condom strip wrapper would show up as ketone results. Instead you get LO (good), a number (probably pretty bad), or HI (bad for sure.)¬†

How convenient Bill Clinton speak so long DNC, perfect timing for recheck blood sugar make sure go down. 10PM 189, tiny correction. Bigfoot confident will be closer 120 after rousing, comprehensive speech. Instead get this whopper: 280.

How convenient ketone meter blood test strips arrive CVS yesterday. Not need confront splashy pee/sleeping child. It walk in park.

How convenient each strip individual wrapper—>NovaMaxPlus know Bigfoot not plan use often, wish preserve/not stale. So convenient this meter work just like glucometer. Not need new moves.

How inconvenient meter count down from ten. Ten! Bigfoot not accustom this level suspense. It forever. 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1:


The symbols are to help you determine how bad to feel when you get a numerical result.

How convenient result in English word not numeral. However still not know how feel about…LO? LO mean trace? LO mean low battery? Look in guide. LO mean zero or so minscule ketone meter not able measure number. Huzzah. LO.

    Katy, you / bugfoot need to be involved in tested, reviewing and designing medical devices. You have such a thoughtful perspective on this.

    Oh My! Never seen this type of meter. I like mine…The Precision Xtra…it gives numbers. I love “concrete”! P.S. Glad the ketones were “LO”. xo
