β-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) Assay
Beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is a good index for monitoring treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis1-3. In diabetic patients, the measurement of Beta-hydroxybutyrate along with blood glucose is essential for the assessment of the severity of diabetic coma4. It serves as a reliable guide for monitoring the progress of insulin therapy for diabetic ketoacidosis. Additionally, serum Beta-hydroxybutyrate is a key parameter monitored during controlled 24-hour fasts5-7.
The Diazyme β-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) Assay is for the Quantitative Determination of β-Hydroxybutyrate in human serum or plasma. For in vitro diagnostic use only.
