What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    Description

    Ketostix is a type of urine test that measures the amounts of ketones in the urine. When a person with diabetes’ blood sugar is too high, their body may try to use other sources of energy for fuel. The body may start to break down fats into ketones, which can lead to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). DKA is a medical emergency.

    People with type 1 diabetes have a higher risk of developing ketones in their urine. There are many situations where someone with type 1 diabetes may need to measure their ketones, including:

    • When you are sick, even when blood sugar is normal.
    • You have symptoms of DKA.
    • You feel symptoms of nausea or vomiting.
    • When your fasting blood sugar is high (>240 mg/dL).
    • When your daytime blood sugar is high (>300 mg/dL).
    • When instructed by your healthcare provider.
    • Directions

      Use the directions that came with the package to ensure you use Ketostix correctly. If misused, they can give a false result.

      1. Wash your hands with soap and water. Dry thoroughly.
      2. Collect urine in a cup.
      3. Remove a Ketostix test strip from the container and dip it into the urine, covering the colored portion of the strip.
      4. Tap the strip on the edge of the cup to remove excess urine.
      5. Use a stopwatch to measure 15 seconds.
      6. At 15 seconds, compare the strip’s color against the side of the bottle to get the result.

      Ingredients

      Sodium Nitroprusside 7.1 %, Buffer 92.9 %

      Cautions

      After opening, the test strips expire in six months or the date on the bottle, whichever is first.

      You must follow the testing instructions exactly, or the test can produce false results.

      The test is most accurate when read by at least two different people.
