I have a 10 parameter urinalysis test strip kit that I use from time to time to check my urine - especially since I CIC daily. I purchased it on amazon for about $15.00 On the weekend I was horrified to see the color for ketones and for urobillinogen go off the scales! When I looked it up on the internet to understand these readings it seemed I had severe liver disease AND diabetes! I saw my doctor today who pointed out the strips had expired a year ago!! Also, the box warns that once the container with the strips has opened and exposed to air, then all the strips should be discarded after 90 days!! Mine had been opened for 18 months!! He still ran a liver enzyme and creatinine test on me just to be sure but I was really embarrassed. So check your dates!!
