Do Raspberry Ketones Really Work? A Detailed Review

If you need to lose weight, you are not alone. More than a third of Americans are overweight, and another third are obese (1). Only 30% of people are now at a healthy weight... being overweight has become the new "normal." The problem is, conventional weight loss methods are so difficult that 85% of people fail in the long run (2). However... there are many products out there that are claimed to make things easier. These are herbs, shakes and pills that are supposed to help you burn fat or reduce your appetite. Among the most popular ones is a supplement called Raspberry ketones. Raspberry ketones are claimed to cause the fat within cells to be broken down more effectively, helping the body burn fat faster. They are also claimed to increase levels of adiponectin, a hormone that helps to regulate metabolism. This article reviews the current scientific research behind raspberry ketone supplements and whether they are actually worth considering.

    Hi there I am new to MagicMum this is my first post.
    We have an adorable little girl aged 3.5yrs, she's had lots of tests over the past 1.5yrs most recently for endocrine which were clear, mitochondria don't have full results but latest skin biopsy was clear, the Drs discovered while in the unit that she has a problem with her blood sugars as she had some hypos in there. We are waiting on results for Glycogen Storage Disease, consultant told us if this one is clear then more than likely we will have to put her blood sugar problems down to Ketotic Hypoglycemia although her symptoms don't fit it. Just wondering if anyone out there has come across KH and how you dealt with it and how your lo is doing. TIA

    Hi rosepetal thanks for the reply have sent you a pm.
    Our little girl is non symptomatic so we need to keep a close eye on her, shes on a high carb/high sugar diet with fasting times. She had ketones in her urine the other morning I just checked it on spec, I know if I ring the unit they will want me to reduce her fasting times, they have told us we could always look at adding corn starch to her meals, did you ever use the corn starch?
    I can't believe you haven't come across anyone else with KH, I thought I would find it easy to find people with experience of it as some support would be great.
    Chat again, 2Dolls.
