What do "Lo" and "Hi" Keto-Mojo meter readings mean?

Updated 2 months ago by Michelle Pool

Our meter accurately reads 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. 
  3.  Your blood sample size is too small. Learn more here.-
    1. Re-test , using this testing protocol

Hi Readings

Readings above 8.0 mmol/L will show "HI," meaning your ketone levels are above our ability to detect 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 chip that comes with each pack of ketone strips. Learn how to calibrate your meter here.
