WHAT IS ACETONE TEST?

WHAT IS ACETONE TEST?

Acetone is a by-product of fat and fatty acid metabolism that provides a source of cellular energy for cells when glucose stores are exhausted or when glucose is prevented from entering cells because of lack of insulin. Acetone entering the bloodstream is almost completely metabolised in the liver. When acetone is formed at a faster-than-normal rate or is present in the bloodstream in higher-than-normal levels, it is excreted in the urine.
