Excessive formation of ketone bodies (acetone) results in increased blood levels (ketonemia) and increased excretion in the urine (ketonuria). This condition is associated with a decreased availability of carbohydrates, such as dieting or decreased use of carbohydrates. Diabetes and alcohol consumption are common causes of ketoacidosis. Acetone is one ketone body formed from acetoacetate. Ingestion of isoproply alcohol also leads to the formation of acetone. Limitations Patients with diabetes who may also hav lactic acidosis may have false negatives or falsely weak reactions. With these patients a beta-hydroxybutyrate measurement may be preferred. High concentrations of levodopa may produce false positives. Ketogenic or low/no-carb diets, often instituted for pediatric epilipsy, may also produce false positive results.

Do not use alcohol solutions as skin preparation for drawing
specimens. Use non-alcohol solutions such as Betadine(R) or
Zephiran(R). Keep transport container tightly sealed.
