As the most abundant and stable of the ketone bodies, D-3-Hydroxybutyrate represents a highly sensitive and specific marker of ketosis in both human and veterinary medicine. Unlike commonly used dipstick tests which measure acetone and acetoacetate, the Randox method is highly specific for D-3-Hydroxybutyrate, making this a much more sensitive marker of ketosis.
