Your Glucose Ketone Index
What does my GKI results mean?A lower Glucose-Ketone Index (GKI) value is thought to be associated with better therapeutic benefits of ketosis.
GKI higher than 9 - No ketosis - Usually indicates that carbohydrate intake is still too high.
GKI between 6 and 9 - Mild ketosis - Most people on the ketogenic diet will find their GKI to be in this range.
GKI between 3 and 6 - Moderate ketosis - Usually seen when carbohydrate intake is under 20 grams a day.
GKI between 1 and 3 - Deep ketosis -Blood glucose levels are typically in the 50 to 60 mg/dl range (2.8 to 3.3 mmol/L).
GKI under 1 - Very deep ketosis Drs. Medienbauer and Seyfried's research found that a GKI of lower than 1.0 was more effective for brain cancer patients.
