Abstract

The values obtained by Ross test, G・S test and Shino test No.3 as the simplified tests for estimation of the urine ketone bodies were compared with those obtained by the micro-diffusion method. The results thus obtained statistically may be summarized as follows. 1. The values of total ketone bodies obtained by G・S test showed 1.5 times in quantity those obtained by micro-diffusion method. 2. The values of total ketone bodies obtained by Shino test No.3 and Ross test were 1/2,and 1/3 respectively of the values by micro-diffusion method. 3. So, when G・S test is used for estimating the urine total ketone bodies, the values approximated the standard value may be obtained. 4. In G・S test, the acetone values showed more than twice as high values as that estimated by micro-diffusion method. 5. The acetone values by Ross test and Shino test No.3 showed 7/10 and 8/10 of the values by micro-diffusion method. 6. Therefore, Shino test No.3 and Ross test, especially the former are considered to be suitable for determining the urine acetone.
