Is Being In Ketosis Safe And What Are The Potential Side Effects

Sign up for updates to receive one week FREE of my low carb and gluten free meal plans: CHECK OUT SOME OF MY OTHER FAVORITE LOW CARB KETO RESOURCES: Is being in ketosis safe? Some people think that ketosis is extremely dangerous. However, they might be confusing ketosis with ketoacidosis, which is completely different. While ketoacidosis is a serious condition caused by uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a natural metabolic state. In fact, ketosis and ketogenic diets have been studied extensively and shown to have major benefits for weight loss (1, 2). Ketogenic diets have also been shown to have therapeutic effects in epilepsy, type 2 diabetes and several other chronic conditions (3, 4, 5, 6). Ketosis is generally considered to be safe for most people. However, it may lead to a few side effects, especially in the beginning. An Overview of Ketosis First, it’s necessary to understand what ketosis is. Ketosis is a natural part of metabolism. It happens either when carbohydrate intake is very low (such as on a ketogenic diet), or when you haven’t eaten for a long time. Both of these lead to reduced insulin levels, which causes a lot of fat to be released from your fat cells. When t Continue reading >>

    I adopted a low glycemic diet after a friend saw such positive results. In the beginning my purpose was to try gluten free, but my picky diet turned out to comply with the atkins diet and I lost some weight during the process. I’m a slender person and didn’t intend to lose weight. Anyway…after I figured out the diet better and started including lots of raw vegetables and fruit with my protien I began to feel better than I did in my early twenties (I’m 40 now). Needless to say I am a changed man and will never go back to my old diet.

    but now I have a question. I think my adopted diet sometimes puts me in ketosis. A few weeks ago my urine looked orange and I googled it. Google said that ketosis could cause orange urine and it seemed like a real possibility so I assume that’s what it was. Yesterday I ate an apple for breakfast, 10 oz sirloin with fries and green beans for lunch, and then 20 oz of great greens juice at jamba juice around three o’clock. At 7pm I urinated and it smelled sweet and fruity, not the usual “urine smell”. So I googled that and all my results mentioned ketoacidosis and diabetes. I’m a little unnerved about it. Should I be? Does ketosis change urine odor like this?

    Urine in ketosis may smell different. Though it’s not usually a different color. Non diabetics cannot get into ketoacidosis via diet. No how, no way. But many folks are diabetic and don’t know it. If you have any doubt, get tested. ASAP.

    Some sources state that only those with type I diabetes can suffer ketoacidosis.
    Other sources state that those with type II diabetes can suffer ketoacidosis but it’s rare.
    Are you a diagnosed diabetic? They used to diagnose diabetes via “sweet urine” (they would taste it).
    If you had that many carbs early in the day, I’d highly doubt you are in suffering from ketoacidosis. When I’m in heavy ketosis (say fasting for several days) my urine does NOT smell fruity, honestly, it stinks, but that’s just ancedotal evidence for me, not a hard and fast rule for anyone else.

    Sometimes it’s best to go on how you feel, not what DR Google worries you about.
