From Abbott Laboratories Inc. Now a handheld meter that tests for both blood glucose and blood ketones.

For those people adopting Nutritional Ketosis as a way to increase the success of their low carb lifestyle, testing of blood ketones is key. In the books The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living and The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance, Nutritional Ketosis is explained as the “shift in the adaptation of the body’s hormonal set and inter-organ fuel exchange to allow most of your daily energy needs to be met by fat, either directly as fatty acids or indirectly by ketone bodies made from fat.”

In this one device you are able to measure your blood glucose levels and your blood ketone levels.

  • Blood glucose and ketone testing in the same meter
  • Only needs a small blood sample
  • Large easy-to-read display with backlight

How’s Your New Year’s Resolution? Remember Things Take Time – CarbSmart Podcast Episode 6

So how are those Low-Carb New Year's resolutions coming? I'd like to add one to them if you don't mind. Be patient. Remember Things Take Time. Impatience is the death of most diet and exercise regimens, whether undertaken for the new year or at any other time. In our podcast, Dana Carpender examines the expectations of Low-Carb Resolutions and how to turn them into Low-Carb Reality.


  1. Thanks for your presentation of this meter. While the ketone testing is definitely a great function, I must say that this is one of the more inaccurate meters I have used in terms of bloog glucose testing. It consistently reads +20 mg above normal (tested against the laboratory). Also the blood is drawn up quite slowly into the strips and sometimes it is difficult to make sure that enough gets in. I don’t know if I’m the only one having problems with this meter, but I have had to stop using it due to its inaccuracy.

    • Anna, this is good information to share, thank you. I still use my Accu-Chek Advantage for blood glucose. Maybe I will stay with it.

      Has anyone else had issues with the Xtra meter?

    • Anna, I agree this is by far the most inaccurate meter my husband has used. For instance, one morning he got an unusually high reading so he took it again and the next reading was 35 pts lower. So he ended up taking 3 more readings and they each darted back and forth–a 45 pt spread. When we bought the testing solution, it did the same thing. If it consistently read high or low, you could at least get a pattern, but this one just isn’t accurate at all.

  2. I haven’t had any issues with this particular meter but I’m just finding out (about a few weeks ago) that blood glucose meters can be inaccurate. I had to buy 2 meters to use at the same time so that I can kind of monitor my glucose levels more accurately – since I control my glucose levels via diet, exercise and vitamin supplements.

    What I’m trying to figure out is – what’s the point in measuring blood glucose levels if the instrument doing the measurement is inaccurate?

  3. I do keep track of the patterns, but since I don’t usually eat normal meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) I sometimes fast or skip meals to see what the effects on my blood glucose will be. Most of the time, the readings are so far apart, I often questioned if it was correct at all.

    Ex: Before a meal: 166
    Right after the meal: 285
    2 hrs after the meal: 90 – 113
