    Ketone test: Optium Glucometer & Urine strip

    I heard that the ketone result by blood is much more accurate than urine stick.
    But, ketone strip for Optium Glucometer is much more expensive than urine stick. So I'll save ketone strip for Optium Xceed until I see pink from Urine strip.
    In case I need more accurate result, I will use Optium Glucometer.

    Recently I ate rice temporarily, so there is no color change.
    From now on, I will quit eating rice, bread, etc and see how
    many days does it take to see pink result.

    I like the idea of using the urine strips to see if it's even worth testing with the ketone strip. While they aren't as sensitive, they may work well for this task.
    I have the same meter, in the US the name is Precision xtra. The strips cost $7-8 / strip at my pharmacy and even online at Amazon, $6 / strip. I ended up purchasing them from an accredited Canadian pharmacy for $2 / strip.
    To save money on strips I only test when I plan on using the result to make changes in my diet. If I'm quite sure that I won't be in ketosis (like this morning in a post ice cream hangover) or the opposite where I've tested in ketosis all week and I ate the same as always. So I usually test when I am trying to get back into ketosis, or am experimenting with my total allowed amount of protein or carb. Currently I'm testing if I can handle 80g / day.

Understanding Medical Words a tutorial What's in this for me? You will learn: Why you and your doctor sometimes are speaking different languages. And how to put together parts of medical words. You'll also find: Quizzes to see what you've learned. And links to lists of word parts and abbreviations. What did the doctor say? Did you ever feel as if you and your doctor weren't speaking the same language? What did the doctor say? Sometimes even words that you think you understand can have a different meaning to your doctor! For example: heart attack. Your uncle's heart stopped beating! Luckily, the emergency responders used CPR and revived him. What? When you visit him, you say how glad you are that he survived his heart attack. The doctor says, "He didn't have a heart attack. He had a cardiac arrest but no muscle damage." What does he mean? What's going on? To you, a heart attack means the heart doesn't beat. To the doctor, a heart attack means there is damage to the heart muscle. Another example: fever. You take your temperature and it's 99 point five degrees. You call the doctor and say you have a fever of 99 point five degrees. She says, "That's not a fever." What does she mean? Wh

    This side effect was very common with phenformin (metformin’s “parent drug”), and in fact led to its withdrawal from many markets. However, lactic acidosis appears to be very uncommon with metformin. In fact, whether or not lactic acidosis occurs at all with metformin is a matter of intense debate among some physicians. Nonetheless, out of safety, physicians will not prescribe metformin to patients at high risk of lactic acidosis (such as patients with advanced kidney disease).

MedTerms 4 Fun www.medterms4fun.com In this video, N Epps shows how to analyze word parts, form a medical term, and define a medical term. In this example, we will use the term "Cardiology". Cardiology means the study of the heart. First, let's analyze the word by breaking down into word parts. Cardi is the root meaning heart. We will use the letter "R" for root. The letter "O" is the combining vowel. We will use the letters "CV" for combining vowel. -logy is the suffix meaning the study of. We will use the letter "S" for suffix. When we define the term, we start at the suffix and then move to the root. So, the term "Cardiology" means the study of (suffix) the heart (root).

    Keto diet and alcohol (Red Wine)

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18950537
    Wouldn't the inclusion of Alcohol in a keto diet be counterproductive due to the body's desire to burn fat as energy before Alcohol? How is it that a Ketosis-based diet with 200/400 ml/day of alcohol (red wine) is as successful as shown in this study?

  2. Eileen

    Yes, it is counter-productive. That's why ideal meal plans do not include red wine.
    If you are doing a relaxed keto, like on holidays, then you can get away with the odd glass of red wine, but not as part of a strict cutting diet.

    Probably because a diet of fish, veg & olive oil with a couple of glasses of red wine a day is a fcuk-load healthier than the diet the average person eats.
    Wine & beer is perfectly healthy if you're sensible about it. If you're already under 10% bf and trying to cut further then you probably need to avoid alcohol completely. Otherwise, in moderation it's fine.
    There are several studies which have shown that people who drink moderately live significantly longer than tee-totallers - especially when it's red wine.
