Description of Handheld Reader Optium Xceed
The Optium handheld meter measures blood glucose and ketones, which can cause reproductive problems in cows.
Ketosis, or ketonemia, is a dominant pathological condition in dairy and suckler cows. Ketosis is characterised by an accumulation of ketone bodies in the blood. Ketones are a type of acid produced when the body burns some of its own fat for energy. Ketones are passed from the blood into the urine. The therapeutic goal is to restore blood sugar levels.
