How does measuring Breath Acetone differ from Respiratory Quotient and Resting Metabolic Rate testing?

By |2021-04-19T13:16:28-07:00April 19th, 2021|

Respiratory quotient (RQ) and resting metabolic rate (RMR) are approximately the same measure for our purposes. They are estimated by measuring carbon dioxide and oxygen in the breath to determine the rate of carbon dioxide production and rate of oxygen uptake.  The ratio of these two rates (CO2 productions to O2 uptake) provides an indication …

How does LEVL work with different weight loss programs?

By |2021-04-19T13:16:41-07:00December 31st, 2019|

Because the LEVL device measures low levels of ketones as the body transitions to elevated fat metabolism, it can be used with any prescribed weight loss program. Blood and urine tests were developed to identify ketoacidosis and are not sensitive to lower levels of ketones that are indicative of fat loss. Based on the scientific …

Why measure breath acetone with LEVL?

By |2021-04-16T11:51:49-07:00January 22nd, 2018|

Acetone, a ketone body present in the breath, is a byproduct of fat metabolism. Measuring acetone with the LEVL device helps weight loss providers personalize weight loss programs with real-time fat metabolism insights.

The LEVL device was designed specifically for weight loss and uses a proprietary sensor to measure low levels of acetone and can be …
