ketone

 [ke´tōn]
any compound containing the carbonyl group, C=O, and having hydrocarbon groups attached to the carbonyl carbon, i.e., the carbonyl group is within a chain of carbon atoms.
ketone bodies the substances acetone, acetoacetic acid, and β-hydroxybutyric acid; except for acetone (which may arise spontaneously from acetoacetic acid), they are normal metabolic products of lipid and pyruvate within the liver, and are oxidized by muscles. Excessive production leads to urinary excretion of these bodies, as in diabetes mellitus; see also ketosis. Called also acetone bodies.

ketone

an organic molecule in which a C=O group is contained within the molecule rather than at one end. Ketones are highly varied in structure, ranging from the simple acetone (see Fig. 199) to FRUCTOSE, a KETOSE sugar.

BAD BREATH DRASTICALLY cutting calories, as well as following a high-protein/ low-carb diet, can both cause bad breath - due to chemicals, called keytones, being released when you force your body into the fat-burning state of ketosis (remember when Atkins first got popular and everyone was talking about this?).
In my experience as a regulatory consultant mainly in the IVD area, I have observed over the last year or so an increasing interest in linking traditional IVD home-use test strips, such as urinalysis (protein, pH, glucose keytones, nitrite, etc.) and finger-stick whole blood glucose monitoring tests (BGM) with smartphone "camera" technology used essentially as test strip reading devices.
