    I just called Boots in Cambridge for Ketone testing strips and was interrogated like a criminal. They wanted to know why I wanted them, and I said I was testing for ketones, and then further questioning, so Isaid I was on a diet. She abruptly said, "Okay, right..I'm sorry, we're not allowed to sell them. Goodbye," and hung up. :confused:
    What am I missing? :rolleyes: I thought they were easily available and didn't know I was trying to purchase some restricted item. I know they are really for diabetics, but didn't want to be dishonest or rather, didn't think I had to be dishonest to purchase them.
    Are there restrictions on their sale in the UK? (I hav only been here a few months) Maybe I can do without them, but I was curious to know if I am in ketosis.
    Now I feel stupid for calling, and like I called to ask for ganja (marijauana). :(
    Bye for now :wave:

    Boots refused to sell my boyfriend Ketostix (that's the brand name) when he admitted he wasn't a diabetic, & they refused to give a reason. :mad: From what I've heard there aren't official restrictions on them, so I'm assuming Boots are just fascists. I don't have my boyfriend's scruples, so I went to Superdrug & lied- I said they were for my mum!:rolleyes: - but they had run out.
    Finally we got them from a company called Pharmacy4U, which I'm sure has a website (try Pharmacy4U.co.uk). After all that, though, we never use them any more! Maybe I will once I'm on maintenance. So don't worry too much about them :)
    Take care, Daisy

    Thanks Daisy, I think I'll just do without them or try the website you suggested.
    Cheers :wave:

    I am always amazed at people who get constipated on this diet.
    for me, its the total opposite.
    yesterday was my first day, and already this morning the loose stools have started. within an hour of eating
    warning, this will get graphic
    in the past, I have had it so bad, its almost like "peeing out of my butt"
    it comes on with no warning, so if I am not near a bathroom, I am in real trouble.
    sometimes, its so frequent that it happens 5 times an hour and I get sore from going so much
    I eat mainly meat. veggies are just there to help the meat go down. I eat some dairy(but not yesterday or today). I eat plenty of fat
    So, am I not digesting the meat or fat? am I overdigesting it? If I am not digesting it, shouldn't I be losing weight like crazy?
    ox bile, HCL, digestive enzymes?
    I would really be interesting in hearing from someone who has had this problem and how you resolved it

  2. Dineen

    Going paleo completely relieved a lifetime of constipation for me. From things I've read, people who get constipated on a low carb diet are those who were "addicted" to fiber. You may have a corrollary issue with fiber, needing it to "bulk up" or slow down your digestion in the large bowel.
    Your particular 5 times an hour and very liquid stool, may be other issues with side effects of over supplementation (frequent issues with too much glutamine, Vitamin C, or magnesium, for instance). That was the past, so stick with what's going on now.
    Fat also is a great help for those with constipation issues, so you may want to adjust your fat consumption down just a bit.
    You can learn a lot about what normal stool patterns are from gutsense.org. There is a great image of the Bristol stool scale with explanations of normal there.
    Liquid is not good. Soft is good; daily and even after every meal is good.
    I find that if I eat too many fibrous veggies (more than a cup of grean beans at a time, for instance) I don't have a daily bowel movement and feel bloated or "backed up". My stools are still soft to pass though. So you may want to eat more veggies and more fibrous ones rather than just lettuce, for instance.

  3. sandy

    I don't take vit C, the loose stools happened before I took mag(and I take a chelated form), only take 1 glutamine, but not consistent with that, although the loose stools are.
    I think more veggies would help, but, one, they increase my cravings, and two, I get the feeling Dr K does not think we should be eating many veggies(esp during the winter) and that we should try to eat Ketogenic and as low carb as possible

Renal Tubular Acidosis (rta)

Renal Tubular Acidosis (RTA) is a disease of the kidneys Namely the renal tubules. There are three main types of renal tubular acidosis Type one, type two, and type four. Type three renal tubular acidosis is a term no longer used for its defining feature resolved with age and was not part of the pathological process. The type of RTA is assigned depending on which part of the acid handling mechanism is affected. Statistics on Renal Tubular Acidosis (RTA) There are no widely accepted statistics on the rate of RTA. The disease, however, does occur at any age and afflicts men more so than women. Risk Factors for Renal Tubular Acidosis (RTA) Type 1 This condition may be inherited or acquired. In the majority of cases, this form of RTA results from the presence of another disease such as Sjogrens syndrome , hypergammaglobulinaemia, chronic active hepatitis and systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Type 2 This condition may also be inherited or acquired. The pattern of inheritance in this condition is more unpredicyable than that of type 1 RTA. This condition may also be present in associated with other disease states such as Fanconi Syndrome and can be induced by certain drugs such as acetazola Continue reading >>

    The hypokalemia comes when the patient gets treated with insulin, driving the glucose and K+ into the cells. The kidneys can't (and won't) move so much out through urine with the excess glucose to make for hypokalemia.

  2. Esme12

    There can be a brief period of hypoglycemia in the early stages of an elevated blood sugar (polyuria)....but by the time "ketoacidosis" sets in the Serum potassium is elevated but the cellular potassium is depleted (all that shifting that goes on)
    Diabetic ketoacidosis

  3. April2152

    So pretty much what we would observe clinically is hyperkalemia because the osmotic duiresis does not move serum potassium significantly?
