Tracking The Glucose Ketone Index

In this post we will examine the “glucose ketone index” as a biomarker for tracking metabolic health. We will also explore some of the primary use cases for tracking the glucose ketone index including cancer treatment, weight loss, metabolic disease management and athletic performance. Lastly, we will demonstrate how you can use Heads Up Health to track the glucose ketone index along with all of your other important health data.

Or, read on for more information on tracking the glucose ketone index. What is the Glucose Ketone Index? The glucose ketone index is simply a way to measure the relationship between your ketone levels and your glucose levels at any moment in time. It is measured by dividing your blood glucose level (mmol/L) by your blood ketone level (mmol/L). The result is a single number we can use an indicator of one’s metabolic state. The index has its roots in brain cancer treatment, where researchers using metabolic therapy found best results when glucose and ketones maintained a very precise Continue reading >>

    I just came back from a series of test to check my heart palpitations. The doctor didn't see anything obvious that could directly cause palpitations, so the implication seems to be that it's more related to my diet change (been a month since I started moderate low-carb) and bodily adjustments.
    My blood test came back a bit high on uric acid, and the doctor said a low-carb diet has a tendency to cause it. So essentially I'm told that I'm at a risk of developing high blood pressure. I wasn't diagnosed as having gout since I have no joint problems. The doctor also suggested that I could simply be not eating enough, causing elevated levels.
    Anyone has a similar experience? It seems that I should eat less meat and more veges.

    Can't help personally but was interested so had a look. This seemed credible and had some suggestions.

    Click to expand... Hi, if I was you I would make sure you are drinking plenty of water as this helps to flush uric acid. I used to be prone to gout attacks but since going lchf I haven`t had one in well over a year so I am a little sceptical of lchf causing high uric acid levels. Best of luck anyway, Chris.
