5 Delicious And Healthy Snacks For Diabetics

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects an estimated 50 million people in our country. According to the Diabetes Foundation of India (DFI), this figure is likely to go up to 80 million by 2025, making India the 'Diabetes Capital' of the world. Diabetes requires life-long management and control. Certain lifestyle changes and a strict diet can help curb further health hazards.

    Those who have gone through the process of adapting to full on ketosis, did you experience any increased anxiety during the process?
    I've also started new herbs which could be contributing to anxiety as well. But was curious if those who have gone through ketosis have had any symptoms like bad anxiety (bad feeling in chest) etc.

    Interesting question. I am not in ketosis, but I stopped all grains, sugar and most carbs suddenly after some scary symptoms about two weeks ago. I went back on antibiotics at the same time. I am now experiencing intense anxiety and panic attacks for the first time in my life. I've been assuming the anxiety is either a regular symptom or a herx.

  3. Tick41

    I have narrowed it down to lyme (anxiety was a prior symptom), a herx since I have begun some new herbs (brings out that old symptom), or my body adapting to keto. it always passes! no matter how bad it is
    Lyme symptoms since 2013. Positive IGM bands 23/41 through LLMD August 2016. Myco positive,EBV and other viruses as well.
    Currently taking herbs for treatment of lyme. full on keto diet currently.
    Herbs- B-Vital (energy),AB5T (adrenal support) Mixed EFAS (inflammation /chronic fatigue), PHYTOLYMEX (lyme recovery), Yeast #8 nosode (candida), methylfolate (mthfr),Lexapro (will get off soon)
