Nondiabetic Hyperglycemia

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: What is nondiabetic hyperglycemia? Nondiabetic hyperglycemia means your blood glucose (sugar) level is high even though you do not have diabetes. Hyperglycemia may happen suddenly during a major illness or injury. Instead, hyperglycemia may happen over a longer period of time and be caused by a chronic disease. Why is it important to manage hyperglycemia? Hyperglycemia can increase your risk for infections, prevent healing, and it make it hard to manage your condition. It is important to treat hyperglycemia to prevent these problems. Hyperglycemia that is not treated can damage your nerves, blood vessels, tissues, and organs. Damage to arteries may increase your risk for heart attack and stroke. Nerve damage may also lead to other heart, stomach, and nerve problems. What increases my risk for nondiabetic hyperglycemia?

    Feeling Ill on Keto Diet?

    I've been on Keto Diet (CKD) for 4 days now and feel dreadful. Since starting I've felt bloated, tired, bad nausea, headache and just generally pretty awful.
    Is this normal? If so how long does the nausea and lethagy last for? I was told 4 days max and this is my 4th day and if anything I feel worse, plus I haven't lost any weight (put on 1lb!).
    Cheers guys

    It's been 4 days.
    At this point, any significant drop on the scale would be water weight at most.
    Anytime you drastically change your eating there is going to be a period of adjustment in which you body is going "why the **** did you mess with ****???". Getting into ketosis for the first time is no exception.
    If it's really that bad just eat some damn carbos.

    I generally feel like 100% crap the first few days after keto-diet initiation, then improve to only 50% crappy after that. Some people say they feel awesome on keto, but I sure never have.
    Hence I consider about 80g carbs/day as low as I'll go anymore.
