Blood Testing Products
Consumers searching for Blood Testing Products are normally looking for products designed to address blood sugar levels. Blood sugar levels are determined through blood sugar testing which is the process of drawing blood from a patient or having the patient draw blood from oneself; this is normally done through the pricking of a patient’s finger with a lancet, and then placing a sample of the patient’s blood onto a diabetic test strip. The test strip is then placed into a blood glucose meter which provides a reading and tells the patient or healthcare facility if the patient needs to increase or decrease their blood sugar levels. The preferred method of increasing blood sugar levels is through food. Glucose, which is sugar, can also be taken separately to increase a patient’s blood sugar safely.

Urine Testing Products
Consumers looking for urine tests are normally searching for two main test types: urine drug panels or urine protein levels. Urine drug panels, or urine drug screening, can run from a 3 panel drug test, which includes Marijuana, Cocaine, and Opiates, to a 10 panel drug screen, which includes Marijuana, Cocaine, Phencyclidine, Opiates, Methamphetamine, Methadone, Amphetamine, Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, and Tricyclic Antidepressants. Normally a consumer who purchases a drug panel is looking to determine if they still hold trace elements of illicit substances in their system before being tested for a new job or by the state in cases where a consumer is on parole.
Urine tests designed to check for protein levels in the urine are often referred to as ketone test strips. Urine ketone test strips are used to determine the amount of ketone bodies in the system. Ketone bodies are a byproduct produced during physical activity when fatty acids are broken down for energy in the liver. There are three main types of Ketones: Acetone, Acetoacetic Acid and Beta-Hydroxybutyric acid.
Urine Ketone Tests are an important part of diabetes monitoring. If ketone levels are off and blood glucose levels are low, a life threatening situation is quickly upon the diabetic person. Some dieters like to use Ketone Test Strips as a way to determine if they are burning ketones. This testing methodology is common with low carb diets as ketone energy use increases as glucose levels in a person decrease.
In general, Urine Screening for things such as drugs, alcohol, glucose levels and ketone levels are accurate at providing a picture of the associated levels in a patient. When exact measurements are needed, it is common to move from a urine test to a blood test. Blood tests are normally more expensive to process but provide an exact measurement which is why in the medical settings blood tests of all types are preferred over urine testing.
