What do “Lo” and “Hi” ketone meter readings mean?

  • Last updated November 19, 2017

For Keto-Mojo models TD-4279 & Bluetooth Integrated

These meters read ketones from from 0.1 mmol/L ~ 8.0mmol/L.

Lo Readings

Keto-Mojo meters accurately read ketones down to 0.1 mmol/L.

Following are possible reasons you may get a Lo reading:

  1. You are not in nutritional ketosis and need to reevaluate your carbohydrate consumption and fat intake. Then, test again in a day.
  2. You have not calibrated your meter with the specific code chip that comes with each pack of ketone strips. Learn how to calibrate your meter here or watch this video.
  3.  Your blood sample size is too small. Learn more here.

Hi Readings

Readings above 8.0 mmol/L will show “HI,” meaning your ketone levels are above our ability to measure them.

Following are possible reasons you may get a HI reading:

  1. You are in Therapeutic ketosis. A therapeutic ketogenic diet can be helpful for a range of chronic health conditions such as cancer, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
  2. You have not calibrated your meter with the specific code key that comes with each pack of ketone strips. Learn how to calibrate your meter here or watch this video.
