Hi, I ' m on my second day of Atkins now, and I just bought Ketostix. I decided to test them, quick-witted it ' s probably too soon to be in Ketosis, but to my huge surprise it rotten a shade of pink. Does anyone know if it ' s possible to be in dietary ketosis so soon, or should I be worried about diabetes?

Yes, it is possible. Maybe you had very little glycogen stored. Not frequent, but IMHO possible.
If you are worried, what I would do is have three - four days on high sugar - sodas, juices, pastries, you name it - and then test. If you still show positive, go to a doctor.

Well, I had been eating kind of high - fat, medium - sugar the days before, and véry low - carb yesterday, so that might explain... Just tested again, and it was a much darker shade of purple than it was earlier, so I do think it ' s dietary ketosis kicking in... I also feel a lot less nauseous than I did earlier today and yesterday, so now I ' m fairly confident it ' s just the diet starting to work.
Thanks anyway!
