Also, there is currently no objective evidence to suggest that being in ketosis, whether via the ketogenic diet nor exogenous ketone supplements, could cause a “false positive” on a drug test.

Collectively, the responses to these questions include anecdotal reports of users who were in ketosis when drug tested and experience no such problem.
