Reactive Hypoglycemia

Reactive hypoglycemia is a condition in which the body reacts to a perceived catastrophic drop in blood sugar. I say perceived because during an episode, the blood sugar readings may be in the normal range, but still "feel" like low blood sugar to the person having the reaction. In my experience, hypoglycemia happens to most people when first beginning a low carb, ketogenic diet. It may be especially strong in people who have already developed insulin resistance or pre-diabetes from a chronic excess of carbohydrate intake. There are different types of low blood sugar causes. Transient hypoglycemia normally happens when most people who have been eating a high carb diet drastically reduce carbohydrate intake for the first time. This type happens during the first several weeks of carb reduction because the body has not had time to create the enzymes or metabolic state to burn internal fat stores for fuel. Basically there is a gap in the amount of carbohydrate available for fuel, and the process of accessing fat stores for fuel. The lack of fuel sources results in transient low blood sugar. Reactive hypoglycemia is more of an acute reaction to a very high carb meal. For instance, when Continue reading >>

    Yesterday I notice the last few seconds of urinating, I would get this tingling sensation (not really burning) in my stomach. So I went to the Dr (not the one that did the surgery but my main doctor) and she stated I have a UTI. She prescribe some antibotics that taste really nasty (since I crush them up)
    Of course the Dr checks your urine. She told me I was in Ketosis stage and I'm starving myself. I just looked at her and reminder her that I did just have VSG and basically I do eat, just not a whole lot any more. I hate to have a UTI right now but I am happyh to ketosis stage meaning I'm burning fat/calories.
    Has any one else been told they are Ketosis? If so, is this bad and how long does it last? It seems like something you want to last forever if you are burning fat, right?

    All of us should be in ketosis while in the losing stage. When you hit maintenance you start increasing your carbs and it evens out for your body. You don't want to be in ketosis forever, from a medical stand point. It could be bad for your kidneys and cause renal failure in the long run.

    I have been in Ketosis since surgery. I bought the walgreens brand ketosticks for 10 bucks and check a few times a week. It will be 12 weeks this Thursday and Im down 45 pounds and been in Ketosis the whole time. I was in ketosis the last 3 months of my last pregnancy and never had any issues so Im not worried but sure as hell enjoying the fat burning baby cakes!

You mentioned that you're 18 weeks along, and you're just sure that you're pregnant with twins, but when you went to the doctor to have an ultrasound, they only saw 1 baby, and you're wondering what is the chance that they could be wrong. Now there aren't necessarily stats out there for that, but I can tell you, after being a Labor & Delivery nurse for 9 years, I've only seen 1 situation where twins were born where they weren't previously diagnosed. And this is due largely to the fact that we have good technology these days and good screening routines. So of course if someone is doing an ultrasound that isn't well-trained and isn't expert on ultrasounds, then it could be missed. But it's unlikely, because at that point in pregnancy especially, when they put the wand on your belly, those 2 babies would be easily seen. It's easier to miss when a baby is much farther along in pregnancy and bigger, because then if you find a head, and a heart, and some limbs, and you didn't know about a twin pregnancy prior to that, you're really not looking for anything else, and at that point the other twin could be hiding or something. But again, at 18 weeks it would be pretty obvious. They would be able to see the 2 babies right there on the same screen. Now if you want, you're more than welcome to seek a second opinion. And in fact, if you are highly suspicious, it would be best for this diagnosis to made sooner rather than later, because if you are pregnant with twins, that puts you at high risk, and you need to make sure that you're seeing a high risk OB doctor. And they'll probably even refer you to other specialists called perinatologists who watch you more closely over the course of the pregnancy. You're at higher risk for preeclampsia, and gestational diabetes, and many other things that they'll be careful to watch you for. So of course it would be helpful to know if you are pregnant with twins. If by some small chance twins were missed, and you came to the hospital and delivered, they delivered one baby just expecting the one, and then a second was coming, they would just deliver that baby too. And I bet there would be many shrieks of surprise and tears of joy. I hope the very best for you, and if you have any other questions for me in the future, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/Intermountain..., and recommend us to your friends and family too.

    So I've been doing some research on the Keto diet and so far it looks like a diet that can bring me the results I need, however I've never been on a diet before. Personally I don't believe in diets and usually watch what I eat on a regular basis but recently I realized that I needed some type of drive or diet to improve my metabolism.
    I used to be a huge athlete (volleyball, swimming, softball, dance) for as long as I could remember and stopped once I entered my 2nd year of college due to the heavy work load I was given from both work and school. Ever since then my weight fluctuated.
    So my questions are should I do the keto diet and if so will it effect my metabolism and what should I watch out for while doing this diet?

  2. hornwort

    I wouldn't even call it a "diet", really. It's more of a nutritional system, living life without the inefficient sugars that cause us to operate day-to-day in a series of crashes.
    It will massively transform your metabolism, because your body will start using all the calories you give it for fuel, instead of directing them into fat storage to avoid spiking your blood sugar. Insulin is what makes us fat, because without it, sugar would kill us. From a biological and evolutionary point of view, the only capacity our bodies have to even deal with carbs is as a last-resort for calories, to prevent starvation.
    I have led an active lifestyle and eaten healthy my entire life, and while I've always been "healthy", that is, able to outmatch people who look far fitter than me in running, strength, agility and etc., I've been overweight my entire life. To expand and elaborate, I have eaten less calories, less processed food, while being far more active than friends and family you would call "thin" or "fit", and the only time I have ever been able to lose weight is during times of unemployment where I can work out for 6-8 hours per day while eating nothing but a steamed chicken breast and spinach/celergy/arugala each day.
    Now, on Keto, I see the fat melting off, I have far more energy, I enjoy food more and cook more elaborately, my moods are better, and even my concentration is better.
    Now for the cons:

    The induction period is hard for some people. You have to really plan ahead, using calorie and cabohydrate calculators (myfitnesspal.com is a godsend). Google "fat bombs" and think about investing in a carb-free protein powder -- these make it extremely easy to hit your fat and protein percentages (65% and 30% of calorie intake, if you're muscled). You will likely experience some digestive issues while your body gets used to it, and some experience temporary loss of energy and/or lightheadedness during the induction phase. Some people find they get bad breath in the beginning -- this can be due either to having too much protein and not enough fat, or dehydration.

    And speaking of dehydration. Because carbs are what causes our body to store water, you will find yourself drinking A LOT without them. They say we should drink 8 glasses a day? Try 30, on keto. Minimum. This is probably the most dangerous part of keto. And obviously, this also means killer hangovers. Be sure to drink a minimum of one glass of water between drinks. I drink gin and soda with lime a lot, to offset this a bit... but it's still the biggest "con" of keto for me, as a very social person and historically heavy drinker.

    You will also have to be very careful about nutrition -- without fruit and with such limited carb intake, it's very easy to get low on things like potassium, magnesium and vitamin C. So take a multivitamin, get some carb-free electrolyte powder, and make sure to eat a lot of broccoli/asparagus/cauliflower/spinach/arugala. Those are the 5 staple veggies to rely on for nutrition.

    You will likely experience massive cravings for carbs and sugar. For me this happened about a week after I started keto, and lasted for about a week. I had higher calorie intake as a result, trying to stave off those cravings -- feelings like I would murder just for a slice of sourdough. I still managed a minimum daily deficit of 300 though, with the help of my two favourite indulgences: good liquor and cigars (carb free).

    You will find it harder to build muscle on keto. I did primal for a month before starting to build it up, but there's been a noticeable (though not huge) drop in the rate at which I increase weight in my resistance workouts. This is mainly due to the fact that carbs help with the absorption of protein into muscle, whereas fat slows it down. The best remedy I've found is to have a few carbs immediately after a workout - oats are best.
    If you can live with those, keto may be for you. It's certainly not for everyone. But if you're up to the challenge of induction, it will change your life in very positive ways. Even the first few days without carbs, it's like a curtain of fog peels away, and you realize what "energy" really is. I remember when it occurred to me that I hadn't yawned in a week -- it was a joyous fuckin' realization.

  3. HuntTheShunt

    A high carbohydrate diet increases the demands of vitamin C because carbohydrate consumption hinders Vitamin C absorption.
    It's why sailors got scurvy but the Inuit did not, despite neither consuming Vitamin C rich food. Sailors had a higher percentage of their diet from carbohydrates, meanwhile the small levels of Vitamin C available from animal sources was sufficient to keep the Inuit healthy on their low carbohydrate diets.
    Still, eat your green veggies as you said.

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the anabolic Diet. There are many different approaches to carb cycling, but the general idea is that At some points of the week you're going to have a high amount of carbohydrates, and at other points of the week you're going to have a low amount of carbohydrates. Setting up the high carb and low carb splits will vary from one plan to the next. Some people may have very small changes in the amount of carbs they have from day to day. An example of this would be to set up a low carb, medium carb, and high carb day. Let's say 300 grams of carbs on high carb, 250 grams of carbs on your medium carb, and 200 grams of carbs on your no carb day. Another more advanced approach would be to do a High carb, low carb, and no carb day. The way that I like to set this kind of split up is by having a high amount of carbs on my high carb day, which for me would be somewhere around 400 grams, I would have one third or at the most half that amount for low carb day, and then try to get as close to 0 grams as possible on my no carb day and then repeat. An even more advanced approach would be to just cycle between high and no carb days. Or take it even a step further and do high, no, no. I don't really recommend having any more than two no carb days in a row. Make sure you don't jump to any extreme carb restrictions. An example of this is doing a 800 calorie diet when you could lose weight and maintain a better body composition with a 1500 calorie diet. Jumping to an extreme will not help you lose weight faster, in fact it'll probably backfire. Also in case you're wondering what kind of food you can eat on your no carb day, some great options are fish, chicken breast, ground turkey, protein shakes, Steak occasionally, and you can also have healthy fat sources like avocados, coconut oil, olive oil. and fatty fish like Salmon. For carbs make sure you are eating good sources of carbs like oats, brown rice, and sweet potatoes and avoid the junk food carbs. You can incorporate one cheat meal on one high carb day in the week, but that's it one cheat meal. You may notice that your strength and energy levels may go down while dieting like this. In fact you may feel like straight up garbage in the beginning. Understand that a lot of people feel this way when creating any kind of a calorie deficit. You're body will take a little while to adapt to using fat for energy instead of carbs. So the first 2 weeks can feel miserable. Give your body some time to adapt. A good idea is to plan your high carb days the day before a heavy lifting day, because this way you have stored glycogen available for your heavy lifts the next day. If you have no idea how many carbs to have on each day, try using a calorie calculator to find your maintenance macros and then add at least 50 grams of carbs to get the number for your high carb day. I'll include a calorie calculator in the description. Once you have your high carb number you should be able to figure out your low carb day. No carb day is obviously no carbs. After doing a carb cycling plan you may need to do some reverse dieting

Can A Ketogenic Diet Cause Hypoglycemia Or Low Blood Sugar?

Short Answer: It can but usually only in the first few weeks of keto and usually in only the most insulin resistant. Your Old Diet Before we get into how hypoglycemia is possible with a ketogenic diet, let’s review what happens with your blood sugar levels when you start a ketogenic diet. While you were eating your traditional high-carb Standard American Diet, you were training your body to produce a large amount of insulin with every meal. This insulin was important because the high levels pf blood glucose your diet was producing was toxic to your body so your body had to get that sugar out of the blood stream and into cells where it could be used as fuel or stored as glycogen of triglycerides. Your New Diet Now let’s look at what happens when you start a ketogenic diet. Your body continues to produce the same amount of insulin when you eat which should cause your blood sugar levels to drop so instead, your body begins to pull sugar out of all the nooks and crannies in your body where it stored it. The first reservoir to be tapped is the glycogen stored in your muscles. This stock of sugar is large enough that you can potentially go several weeks with normal blood sugars on ke Continue reading >>

    My GP wouldnt prescribe metformin to me because it isnt actually licensed for PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) (this is what she told me anyway) so she had to refer me to a gynaecologist. He prescribed it straight away. Im "obese" my BMI is 33 but its meant to help weight loss (it didnt for me) so I cant understand why theyre asking you to lose weight 1st!
    Gynae wouldnt prescribe Clomid until Id been on the metformin 9months as he wanted to give my body the best chance to fall PG on its own. I took SI the month before I was due to start Clomid, after checking with the gynae that it was OK, and I got my BFP (big fat positive (pregnancy test)) after 18months of trying.
