What is being tested in Blood Ketone (D3HB) Test?
Fat metabolism produces the by-products as Ketones or ketone bodies. The blood ketone (D3HB) test measures the total number of ketones in the blood.
In the absence of glucose to the body cells as an energy source, fat metabolism produces ketones. Ketones are also produced when the body is unable to use glucose as fuel because of no or less insulin. Fat is used as fuel in this circumstance. Now when the fat is metabolised, it leads to the building of byproducts know as ketone bodies in the blood. It causes the first ketosis and after that progressing to ketoacidosis which is a type of metabolic acidosis. This can be a medical emergency as it is most frequently seen with uncontrolled type 1 diabetes. The three types of ketone bodies are acetoacetate, beta-hydroxybutyrate, and acetone. Acetoacetate is created at the primary level which leads to the creation of Beta-hydroxybutyrate. Acetoacetate spontaneously forms the side product as Acetone. The results of different ketone test are not interchangeable. It measures one or more ketone bodies. We can have a glance of ketone accumulation at the time of sample collection.
