Nrhq Weight Loss Guide To Ketones

Ketones come up a lot when you’re looking to lose weight, build muscle, or you have diabetes. Basically, ketones are the end results of your body burning fat for energy. However, those with type 1 diabetes will produce ketones resulting from insulin deficiency or from high blood sugar. Since many people with diabetes often don’t have the right amount of insulin, the glucose begins to build up in the blood instead of entering the cells. So, the cells burn fat instead of the glucose, and the ketones end up forming in the blood, then they are released through the urine. High levels of ketones in the blood can cause the blood to become too acidic, resulting in a condition called diabetic ketoacidosis. Because of this, the presence of ketones often means a person is in need of medical help. Low to moderate levels of ketone yields a call to the doctor. However, if the levels are high you must seek medical attention right away. Ketone build up can also effect people have type 2 diabetes, as their bodies can’t use insulin properly. And those who aren’t eating enough, whereas ketone buildup occurs because of starvation. Symptoms Of High Ketone Build Up If you have diabetes, it’s i Continue reading >>

    Is moderate Ketosis too much?

    Hey gang,
    For dieting reasons I've recently started an Atkins styled approach. It's modified in that I sorta blend Phase 1 and 2(which adds nuts and more dairy) with a little bit of 'potatoes' (from Phase 3). No grains at all no fruit juices at all. I stay under 30g of carbs a day without fail. In the first 5 days I'm down 6.5 lbs -- after having been on an extended plateau for 6 months caused by taking too much basal insulin AND by still allowing myself some grains in the form of Sugar Free treats from different companies.
    So this modified Atkins is working. Cool!. BUT I picked up Ketosis sticks the other day to verify whether or not I'm in full Ketosis (not to be confused with Ketoacidosis which is VERY bad for diabetics). I had heard on several forums that it's good to get yourself so the read out is between 'trace' to 'low' and that means you're where Atkins wants you for fat burning. But I was surprised to not that I'm in the MODERATE zone for sure -- with the color coding and at the 15 second mark after passing thru urine stream. Even on a very 'liberal' Atkins program that is not following it to a tee... I've achieved and agressive ketosis. That explains the nearly 1 pound of weight loss a day so far..
    My question is -- is 'moderate' on the read too TOO MUCH ketosis. Should I add back some carbs to slow that down? Am I endangering myself at all for the dreaded 'ketoacidosis' by being at this level of ketosis?
    Thanks for your input!

    I think you are confusing ketoacidosis which is caused by very high bgs and dehydration, usually in Type 1's but can happen in Type 2's ( rarely). Usually bgs are quite high . When you are on a ketogenic diet you start to use fat for fuel ( energy). That is why you lose weight. Bein on a ketogenic diet does not lead to ketoacidosis. Go to Jenny's Low Carb Blog, she discusses all aspects of very low carb diet and what to expect
