"5 Ways To Control Acidosis & To Alkalize Your Body!"

Today my friends I would like to discuss another health issue that is very common today, but yet many people are not aware of, which is called Acidosis. This can become a dangerous condition that weakens all the body systems and its ability to resist disease. Acidosis, a medical condition that appears when your body pH is too acidic, falling below 7.35. It is measured on a scale of 0 to 14 the lower the pH the more acidic the solution, the higher the pH the more alkaline (or base) the solution. When a solution is neither acid nor alkaline it has a pH of 7 which is neutral. When acidosis occurs it gives rise to an internal environment allowing disease to invade our bodies, as opposed to a pH-balanced environment which allows normal body function necessary for the body to resist disease. It is important to understand that we are not talking about stomach acid or the pH of the stomach. We are talking about the pH of the bodys fluids and tissues which is an entirely different matter. This imbalance reduces our bodys ability to absorb minerals and nutrients, reduces the cells capacity to repair itself, and prevents the body from detoxing naturally. This affects every function of the bo Continue reading >>

    I looked around here and in the web, but could not find a clear answer. So the situation is: I am in ketosis around 6 month and started to get higher blood sugar 2 month ago. Before I was around 70 - 90. Now I am around 100 to 120, no matter when I meassure. Blood-Ketone level is always around 0.4 to 1.2. My macros are ok and I felt good most of the time. The last 2 weeks though I started to feel a bit down so I started to worry a bit and read into the high BG thing I found 2 articles which leaves a lot of questions unanswered.
    article1!
    article2!
    They are a bit old, so there might be more information by now? I am really worried that I have to stop keto just because of this.... can anyone help by making a holding argument? Can I just ignore this? Thanks in advance.

    Given your BHB of .4 to 1.2, I think it's more likely you still need to limit carbs and/or protein as there's likely too much glucose still in play. Check your postprandial glucose 1, 2, and 3 hours after meals and see if you spike above 120. If so, your meal is still too high in carbs and/or protein when coupled with your existing insulin response.
    When you get your next blood test, be sure to ask for "Fasting Insulin" too. (This should actually be standard in ALL metabolic panels, but isn't.)
    I'm about 17 months into the diet and I've observed my fasting blood glucose bottom out at 70s to start, then slowly increase to 90s (or even low 100s about 15% of the time), yet my blood BHB is typically between 1.8-3.8. I'm confident this is glucose sparing as my fasting insulin tests are now at the bottom of their range (3.3 with reference range 2.6-24.9) AND I check my postprandial glucose which rarely climbs above 120.
    To add to /u/Solol123's point -- protein is tricky because I find if I have too much within a single meal (such as large steak), it will bring up my glucose postprandial and even have a lasting margin into the next morning with higher glucose and lower BHB.

    thanks for the advice. I will try to control protein even more and will stay with mostly 77g a day.

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

Diet-induced Acidosis

Summary: Our bodies are in a state of constant motion. Even when were sleeping, the machinery of the body is at work. Metabolism is the chemical work within our cells that keeps us alive. We often speak of metabolism in relation to digestion and the process of turning the food we eat into energy, but metabolism involves much more. Metabolism is the process in which the chemical reactions within cells de-construct old cells and produce new ones. These chemical reactions also repair damage in tissues and cause growth. All this and much more goes on within our cells at a frenetic pace every moment of every day of our lives Rarely do we give these metabolic processes any thought. We eat , drink, work and play, thinking little about how our diet, thoughts and activities affect us on a cellular level. However, when disease strikes, we sometimes think about our cells and wonder what went wrong. One of the things that can go wrong is acidosis. Acidemia is the medical term given for blood that is too acidic. The commonly used term for acidic blood, though, is acidosis. Technically, acidosis refers to the process that causes blood to be acidic. Nevertheless, in this article, acidosis is the Continue reading >>

    Hi
    A few weeks ago I was admitted to A&E- long story short my sugar was up around 35 as my pump had kinked, I was vomiting up everything. The sugar had been rising for about 12 hours, the first ketone reading I did practically turned the dip stick black, but within 4 hours it was coming back as no ketones (I know how to down water!) and my BS 7.
    I had an easy day the following day and just slept, drank loads of water and then started trying to do "normal" routine stuff the day after that. It took about a week before I was back to normal, I felt crampy and achey, couldn't concetrate on anything and just wanted to sleep! Is there any way of speeding this recovery up? How long does "recovery" take from an episode like this until you feel normal in yourself again? And how do people manage with work- I was getting tellings off for my lack of concentration, I didn't want to go on the sick per se as I didn't feel that I needed to be home in bed, but equally I wasn't capable of performing (I'm an engineer- not a physical labourer, someone who does calculations and lots of sums!)... What should I have done?
    Thanks for any responses, experiences and tips would be really appreciated- I've been diabetic since I was 9 (now 22) and this is the first time I've had real problems (was a teenager with HBAs in the teens on injections, and only been on a pump 9 months with a HBA of 8 now so guessing I'm a lot more sensitive to the highs that I was before!)

    I kinked mine last night. Was awoken by the pump's blocked-cannula alarm (Aviva Combo), thankfully & nothing untoward had happened.

    I had DKA just before I went on my pump, which was caused initially by a sickness bug. i was on placement for my university degree at the time. I was in hospital for about 24 hours, and then my mum took me home. I had 3 days off to recover, and like you said mainly just slept and drank water. The week following I felt very crampy and achey, and i think it took a week or so to feel "normal" again. Now if my pump ever messes up (on friday night it disconnected over night) and i ended up with ketones, i recovered without need of A&E but I felt rubbish yesterday (tired, crampy, irritable) and today I'm not feeling 100%. I think once youve had a high level of ketones it takes awhile for your body to recover, they are "poisonous toxins" afterall. Hope you feel better soon

Examining the relationship between diet-induced acidosis and cancer Increased cancer risk is associated with select dietary factors. Dietary lifestyles can alter systemic acid-base balance over time. Acidogenic diets, which are typically high in animal protein and salt and low in fruits and vegetables, can lead to a sub-clinical or low-grade state of metabolic acidosis. The relationship between diet and cancer risk prompts questions about the role of acidosis in the initiation and progression of cancer. Cancer is triggered by genetic and epigenetic perturbations in the normal cell, but it has become clear that microenvironmental and systemic factors exert modifying effects on cancer cell development. While there are no studies Continue reading >>

    My yorkipoo, Rusty, was just diagnosed today and not given a good prognosis. His glucose level was over 400 and ketones were present in his urine. The vet wanted to send him to a specialist to be watched over the weekend, but I can't afford that. We will administer insulin over the weekend, testing him every few hours, and see how he does. He has already developed the cataracts, but is eating and acting fine, so i just didn't have the heart to euthanize him today without giving him a chance over the weekend. My sons will just be devastated if he doesn't pull through.
    Anyone had any experience with this and if so, what was the outcome? Oh, and maybe some jingles will help.

    I worked with a number of DKA dogs when I was a tech in an emergency/referral hospital. Most of them were in the CCU, unfortunately, and some of them did survive, but it's usually very touch and go for a while. It sounds as though your guy is in better shape than most of my patients were - a lot of them were flat out, essentially comatose, so the fact that he is still eating and acting fine is a good sign. Hopefully, since you just found out, you will be able to get his glucose regulated and he'll do well - just keep a VERY close eye on him and do NOT hesitate to call or take him somewhere if you think he isn't right - they can crash very, very fast.

  3. heatherny2

    Thank you. Yeah, he is acting as normal as he always was, and eating really well (in fact he really likes the special food they gave us). He is also getting used to his glucose testing (with help from DH and a friend). We are, however, all watching him for any changes, so we can immediately get it addressed.
