It Really Is In Your Blood: Glucose To Ketone Ratios

I wrote awhile back about how I felt that I might be going a little mad obsessing over my blood numbers and measuring my blood glucose and ketone levels. This is one of the greatest differences, in my opinion, between people that follow a ketogenic or low carb lifestyle for overall health reasons or weight loss, and those of us who are experimenting with using a ketogenic approach as a specific disease therapy. I’m using the term “therapeutic ketosis” now for this, as you’ll know if you’re a Constant Reader here at Greymadder. I think people in the first category, with weight loss or general health goals, can definitely be helped by measuring ketones, and that this is vital to the success of the approach. However, in my personal experience using this approach to “starve” my brain tumour, I find I can become quite the data junkie, measuring blood levels of both glucose and ketones up to four times a day, because in my mind, the optimal levels of both are perhaps what’s required to have a therapeutic effect. I base this on the book Cancer as a Metabolic Disease by Dr. Thomas Seyfried, in which he advises that there is a window of effectiveness of therapeutic ketosis f Continue reading >>

    What is the difference between a glucose meter and a ketone meter? These two devices are the same right?

    There are only 3 ketone meters (Precision Xtra, Keto Mojo, Nova Max) and they can all read glucose. There are many glucose only meters in the market.
    Ketone strips are expensive, costing a minimum of $1 each. Mojo has the cheapest, followed by Max, then Xtra, though the later can be found on sale. The glucose strips are cheaper.

    I’ve had the Xtra for a few months and just bought the Mojo. I use an inexpensive Walmart meter for glucose because the strips are cheap.

    Just adding to the above. If your concern is primarily your blood sugar numbers, then a glucose meter is what you want.
    If you want to concentrate on ketone production and staying with a certain level of ketosis then the ketone meter is what you need. If both, go for the combo meters listed in the above post.

The Glucose Ketone Index Calculator: A Simple Tool To Monitor Therapeutic Efficacy For Metabolic Management Of Brain Cancer

Go to: Abstract Background Metabolic therapy using ketogenic diets (KD) is emerging as an alternative or complementary approach to the current standard of care for brain cancer management. This therapeutic strategy targets the aerobic fermentation of glucose (Warburg effect), which is the common metabolic malady of most cancers including brain tumors. The KD targets tumor energy metabolism by lowering blood glucose and elevating blood ketones (β-hydroxybutyrate). Brain tumor cells, unlike normal brain cells, cannot use ketone bodies effectively for energy when glucose becomes limiting. Although plasma levels of glucose and ketone bodies have been used separately to predict the therapeutic success of metabolic therapy, daily glucose levels can fluctuate widely in brain cancer patients. This can create difficulty in linking changes in blood glucose and ketones to efficacy of metabolic therapy. A program was developed (Glucose Ketone Index Calculator, GKIC) that tracks the ratio of blood glucose to ketones as a single value. We have termed this ratio the Glucose Ketone Index (GKI). The GKIC was used to compute the GKI for data published on blood glucose and ketone levels in humans an Continue reading >>

What Is A Glucose Ketone Index And Why You Should Care

Having high levels of ketones doesn’t mean you’re automatically getting all of the benefits. Luckily, research shows us that there’s an easy way to know if you’re in prime therapeutic mode so you can be confident you’re getting the best results. Ketosis can already be complicated if you don’t test and figure out what kicks you out. Once you start getting serious about ketosis and tracking ketone levels, you can usually step things up a notch with a simple calculation. You can become more specific with what works for you as an individual. How you do that is by calculating your glucose ketone index. The Glucose Ketone Index, or the GKI, is a ratio that researcher Dr. Thomas Seyfried has been using in his studies relating to both fasting and the ketogenic diet. There’s nothing fancy to this index, it is just a ratio of blood glucose levels to blood ketone levels. Having high level of ketones are great and all, but if you also have a super high level of blood glucose, you’re really just spinning your wheels and not getting any benefits of ketosis. And the real key here is to make sure that the ratio between glucose and ketone levels is as low as possible. If you’ve be Continue reading >>

    An Insulin-to-Carbohydrate ratio (I:C) tells you how much rapid-acting insulin to give to cover the food your child eats. (Or, in other words, the I:C ratio specifies how many grams of carbohydrates are covered by one unit of insulin.) That is, you give 1 unit of rapid-acting insulin for every X amount of carbs your child eats. For example, if your child’s I:C ratio is 1:10, that means that 1 unit of rapid-acting insulin is given for every 10 g ...
