Glucose Ketone Index (GKI)
If you are on the keto diet, you probably know that it is essential to keep balance between ketone and glucose levels.High glucose levels might have an impact on your health and goals and will not enable you to take all the advantages of ketosis. That’s why it is quite important to check the GKI frequently and at least 2-3 hours before eating. How to calculate GKI?
[Blood Glucose Result ÷ 18] ÷ Blood Ketone Result = GKI
What are the standards for understanding GKI results?≥9 You have not reached ketosis yet.
6-9 You're in a low level of ketosis.
3-6 You're in a medium level of ketosis.
≤3 You're in a high level of ketosis.
