Get instant access to the guide go: http://x.vu/vascularfailureprotocol If your doctor did his homework, he will tell you statins carry a significant risk of myopathy , a form of muscle damage that can sometimes be permanent. Statin takers routinely experience dizziness, fatigue, light headedness and many other devastating side effects. Even worse, a 2015 study from Finland shows statins increase your risk of developing diabetes by 46%15...or if you already have it, it can make it worse. To top it all off, your risks of experiencing one of these side effects is up to 10 times higher than your odds of statins doing anything to heal you. Your doctor may still insist that statins lower cholesterol, and he would be right. Statins are scientifically proven to lower "bad" LDL cholesterol.

Definition | Causes | Risk Factors | Symptoms | Diagnosis | Treatment | Prevention Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) occurs when a person’s blood glucose is too high because there is not enough insulin. Instead, the body starts to burn fat for energy. Fat is broken down into acids, causing acid levels to build up in the blood. These acids appear in urine and blood as ketones. DKA is a serious condition that can lead to coma or death if it is not promptly treated. Factors that may increase your risk of DKA: Not taking insulin as prescribed or not taking insulin at all Developing type 1 diabetes for the first time Gastroenteritis with persistent vomiting Pregnancy Surgery Some medications, such as steroids or antipsychotic drugs Blood clot to the lungs Significant illness or trauma Symptoms DKA may cause: High blood glucose levels (greater than 250 mg per dL) Dry mouth and skin Thirst Frequent urination Symptoms that require emergency care include: Severe stomach pain Rapid or difficult breathing Drowsiness Vomiting and nausea Fruity breath odor Rapid pulse Headache Diagnosis You will be asked about your symptoms and medical history. A physical exam will be done. Blood and urine tests wi Continue reading >>

It's free and very enlightening. Dr. Berg talks about the difference between ketosis versus ketoacidosis. They are NOT the same, nutritional ketosis is controlled insulin and ketoacidosis is uncontrolled due to not having any insulin left. Hey guys, Dr. Berg here and in this short video we are going to talk about the difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis. They are not the same, some people they dont want to go into ketosis because they think they assume that is it dangerous because they have the same word keto which is not. Ketoacidosis is a very dangerous disease that happens when you have type 1 diabetic or when you dont make any more insulin and it is out of control or an uncontrolled insulin so the blood sugars are extremely high because you dont have any insulin to make it down. Since ketones are acidic the pH becomes very much of a problem. They have excessive thirst, urination coming out through your body by too much urination and you are completely dehydrated, you lose the electrolytes, you have fatigue, breathing is off. When we look at there is a massive amounts of ketones. Ketosis is between 1-8 or its a smaller amount of mild fat burning, it is controlled to diet, you dont have very many symptoms, maybe some slight adaptation symptoms a little fatigue but if you took B vitamins and potassium, that would clear right up. There is a low amount of insulin, but it is still there and the cells are getting nutrition, low amounts of blood sugar, your blood sugars are good. The ketosis is totally healthy and is not the same with ketoacidosis even though they have the same first four letters, but they are not the same.

    Sorry if this question has been asked a million times, but the search didn't get me what I was looking for.
    I've been on a TKD for 2 days now, and I'm not quite sure if I'm doing all of this correctly. I can't really monitor my diet down to the calorie due to my job, but I'm using common knowledge to steer clear of carbs (bread, rice, beans, fruit, etc, etc). I'm estimating that I've been consuming around 40-50 carbs a day with the bulk of it coming from my post-workout shake.
    From you keto pros out there, do you think I can achieve ketosis with my current carb intake, or should I restrict carbs even further? I'm starting to feel like I should restrict carbs totally save for my carb up day at the end of the week ala the CKD.
    All I all I got the basics down, but I think I need a little more guidance. Any help would be much appreciated.

Michelle (HCA) explains what is involved in an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT). Remember to fast (water allowed) for around 12 hours before your appointment for the test!

Oral Glucose Tolerance Test

Diabetic ketoacidosis is a life-threatening problem that affects people with diabetes. It occurs when the body cannot use sugar (glucose) as a fuel source because there is no insulin or not enough insulin. Fat is used for fuel instead. When fat is broken down to fuel the body, chemicals called ketones build up in the body. As fat is broken down, acids called ketones build up in the blood and urine. In high levels, ketones are poisonous. This condition is known as ketoacidosis. Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is sometimes the first sign of type 1 diabetes in people who have not yet been diagnosed. It can also occur in someone who has already been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Infection, injury, a serious illness, missing doses of insulin shots, or surgery can lead to DKA in people with type 1 diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes can also develop DKA, but it is less common. It is usually triggered by uncontrolled blood sugar, missing doses of medicines, or a severe illness. Common symptoms can include: Ketone testing may be used in type 1 diabetes to screen for early ketoacidosis. The ketones test is usually done using a urine sample or a blood sample. Ketone testing is usually done w Continue reading >>

    Does Ribose Cause Kidney Failure, Ketosis, Acidosis, and Proteinuria?

    I've run across online accounts of young people who developed health problems after taking Ribose. They were on low carb diets at the time. Symptoms include proteinuria (protein in the urine), foamy urine, and swelling of the abdominal area.
    Here's one:
    Here's another:
    Here's another that I think is the same poster posting a while ago on medhelp.org:
    I find the response by a poster called Red Star interesting.
    "According to the FDA, some studies have found D-ribose supplementation causes an increase in uric acid. High uric aclevels (hyperuricemia) may not cause significant adverse effects in most people however some may develop gout, kidney stones, or kidney failure resulting from high uric acid levels. As kidney function declines and large amounts of proteins are passing into the urine, swelling of the hands, feet, abdomen and face may occur.
    The stages of CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) are mainly based on measured or estimated GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate).
    Stage 1 (90+)
    Normal kidney function* but urine findings or structural abnormalities or genetic trait point to kidney disease . . . ."
    *emphasis added
    So the first stage of kidney disease has normal test results. That person eventually spent thousands on Western Medicine without getting a diagnosis or cure.
    I would advise going to an acupuncturist/Chinese herbalist for this problem, as well as following the diet and lifestyle advice provided by Chinese Medicine. I have more information on what that is as well as how to find a good acupuncturist here:
    You can also find my thoughts on it on the first two threads above.

    hI, Luminosity, I am here deteriorating. I just had a recent series of blood work again. Still nothing :( kidney markers are normal except for the still mild protein leakage. My symptoms began as a burning pain in the kidneys, then noticed foamy appearance in the urine.
    It then progressed to muscle wasting, thinning of cartilage.
    Could it be acidosis? But it's not a disease. Should I take sodium bicarbonate? I don't have ketones in the urine but I believe when I took ribose, carnitine, and some other supplements, that's when it began.

  3. Luminosity

    Sorry you've gone through all of that. As I probably wrote on your thread, I felt you should have sought out a good acupuncturist/Chinese herbalist and follow and diet and lifestyle advice from Chinese medicine. Clearly, your kidneys are malfunctioning and Western medicine was unlikely to be able to diagnose or treat you properly.
    I would reread whatever I wrote on your thread and follow the link to my thread on Chinese medicine.
    Taking baking soda is not going to solve your problems. If you read my Chinese Medicine thread and go to a few appointments with a GOOD acupuncturist (and not all of them are) I could review your diet, supplements, lifestyle for anything that might be improved, if you ask. There is no magic supplement that is going to cure you and you have to stop trying to treat the symptoms one by one with exotic or impulsively chosen supplements.
    I wouldn't waste any time, if I were you. This is all contingent on the assumption that all your symptoms are real. The response from your doctors seems to imply that they don't necessarily think that is true. It's very hard for us to know that when we can't even see you or your medical records, etc. Like for instance, you say you are wasting away. What is your weight now and what was it three years ago? What was it a year ago? How tall are you? It would help of you could send pictures to me that show how you are wasting away. Maybe you can send them to me through the messaging system here, not sure.
