Ketogenic Diet Side Effects

Although the adverse effects related to the ketogenic diet are generally less serve than those of anticonvulsant medications used to treat epilepsy, individuals following the diet may experience a number of undesirable effects. Short-Term Side Effects There are several short-term side effects that are most evident at the beginning of therapy, particularly when patients commence the diet with an initial fast. Hypoglycemia is a common side effect in this instance, and noticeable signs may include: Excessive thirst Frequent urination Fatigue Hunger Confusion, anxiety and/or irritability Tachycardia Lightheadedness and shakiness Sweating and chills Additionally, patients may also experience some constipation and low-grade acidosis.

    The largest consequence is a lack of completeness. The Continuum Hypothesis lacks axiomatic support and therefore from Kurt Godel we know it is impossible to logically prove that it is true using our set of axioms in ZFC. Completeness is what makes mathematics solid and without it, and assuming one case of the GCH creates a false sense of completeness within ZFC. You can't actually prove it works or doesn't work in ZFC.
