    When does Ketosis kick in?

    Shop Now
    Im only 3 weeks into going Paleo though I have been gluten free for 20 years plus.
    However, I was wondering how long it takes before ketones show in my urine.
    I have the tester sticks and test first thing in the morning but it has never shown anything.

    I do think it might have shown a bit when I was admitted to hospital a short while ago because they put me on a glucose drip. (They never told me it was ketones in my urine but they never tell you anything do they?)

    Am I expecting too much too soon?

    Keytones will only make it to urine or breath if they are not being used by the body for energy. It's possible to be in ketosis without those signs.

    And I have found in the hospital you have to question their every action.
    Learning the intricacies of healthy eating and nourishing my body the right way.
