Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... A clinical pathway, also known as care pathway, integrated care pathway, critical pathway, or care map, is one of the main tools used to manage the quality in healthcare concerning the standardisation of care processes. It has been shown that their implementation reduces the variability in clinical practice and improves outcomes. Clinical pathways aim to promote organised and efficient patient care based on evidence-based medicine, and aim to optimise outcomes in settings such as acute care and home care. A single clinical pathway may refer to multiple clinical guidelines on several topics in a well specified context. A clinical pathway is a multidisciplinary management tool based on evidence-based practice for a specific group of patients with a predictable clinical course, in which the different tasks (interventions) by the professionals involved in the pa

    I've been on a Keto diet now for nine weeks. I am not diabetic. I'd just like to burn off some stomach fat. That said, I am simply starving at 20g of carbs per day. I've been using keto sticks to measure my ketosis levels (and yes I am aware that these sticks may not be the most accurate testing measure, but I'm not going to get a blood analysis every week). If I go beyond 20g per day, according to the keto stick results, I get thrown out of ketosis. How on earth does one stay at or below 20g of carbs per day? I should also say, prior to this diet, I was rarely a meat eater. I don't like bacon (pork or chicken varieties). Chicken and fish was always my choice.
    Prior to every meal I drink an 8oz glass of water with apple cider vinegar. I read this helps with digestion. I also drink lemon water throughout the day.
    Vegetables such as spinach or broccoli take my stomach forever to breakdown. I'm constantly bloated.
    Honestly, this has been a living Hell. What am I doing wrong?
    Typical day...
    Breakfast: Three AA large eggs and three slices of bacon.
    Lunch: Three cups of spinach. A half pound of ground beef with taco seasoning mix. Two tbsp of sour cream.
    Dinner. Three cups of spinach. Five ounces of chicken. One avocado. One roma tomato.
    Snacks are usually mozzarella or cheddar cheese sticks.

    This is going to be counterintuitive, but try going zero carb. Decide on a period of time like 3 weeks or 30 days, and eat no plant material at all for that period, then reassess. Some people find zero carb much easier to do than trying to stay very low carb. Figure you are going to est 2-3 times your current amount of meat. Eat all you want whenever you are hungry, but strictly from the animal kingdom. As much as you want of meat, fish, eggs. You can also have small amounts of cream, and full fat cheese, but view them as sides to meat, fish, or eggs.

  3. Jeff

    Fat to satiety. If you're hungry, add more fat. It's a wonderful way to deal with hunger pangs. I eat salami with cream cheese until I feel full. More bacon, butter with your avocado, or fatty cheeses. Don't be afraid to add more fat! Wishing you well.

Here's why carbs spare the need for protein in a way that fat can't. Anaplerosis means to fill up and refers to substrates and reactions that fill up a metabolic pathway as its own substrates leak out for other purposes. The citric acid cycle is a central example of this because its intermediates are often used to synthesize other components the cell needs. On a mixed diet where carbohydrate provides much of the energy, pyruvate serves as the main anaplerotic substrate. During carbohydrate restriction, protein takes over. Fat is the least anaplerotic of the macronutrients because the main product of fatty acid metabolism, acetyl CoA, is not directly anaplerotic. There are several very minor pathways that allow some anaplerosis from fat, but they are unlikely to eclipse the need for protein to support this purpose during carbohydrate restriction. Thus, carbs and protein are the two primary sources of anaplerosis. This means carbs can spare the need for protein, and that protein requirements rise on a carb-restricted diet.

Evolving Health: Why Can't We Convert Fat To Glucose?

As evident by many sugar-laden soda pop "potbellies" of North America, lipogenesis can obviously occur from drinking and eating too much sugar (1). Wouldnt it be just grand to reverse the process and be able to lose all that fat via gluconeogenesis? Unfortunately mammals do not have the ability to synthesize glucose from fats (1). The fact is that once glucose is converted to acetyl coA there is no method of getting back to glucose. The pyruvate dehydrogenase reaction that converts pyruvate to acetyl CoA is not reversible (1p252). Because lipid metabolism produces acetyl CoA via beta-oxidation, there can be no conversion to pyruvate or oxaloacetate that may have been used for gluconeogenesis (1p252). Further, the two carbons in the acetyl CoA molecule are lost upon entering the citric acid cycle (1p252). Thus, the acetyl CoA is used for energy (1p252). There are some fatty acids that have an odd number of carbon atoms that can be converted to glucose, but these are not common in the diet (1p253). Maybe they should be made more common. Do they taste good? 1. Gropper SS, Smith JL, Groff JL. Advanced Nutrition and Human Metabolism. Belmont, CA: Thomson Wadsworth, 2009. Continue reading >>

    I am wondering if anybody experience kidney pain and generally kidney problems on paleo/primal especially in keto? I restarted primal maybe 6-7 months ago after my 2nd baby. As I was breastfeeding I was started with relatively higher carb version 175 g carb and slowly dropped the carbs first to 150 g, than 125 g , than 100 g than 85 g and I am around 65-75g ( net 40-50g) since November 1st when I started Whole 30. Maybe because of breastfeeding, ketostix started to show trace amount around 100-110g carb level, and constantly medium level since I am below 85 g, and now sometimes shows large amount of ketones. I am eating around 100 g (+/-15g) protein, which is really medium and not high level as I am 205lb and LBM is 125 lb, and I eat this or higher level than this for years.
    About a week or 10 days ago( 1 week into whole 30), I started to have some minor dull back pain. First I didn't make much of it, as I though uncomfortable sleep or carrying too much my 20+ lb baby or sometimes lift my 45 lb kindergardener is the source. Over the last week the pain became stronger and stronger , and now it is really clear that it is not my back, but actually my kidneys. I used to have lots of kidney troubles as small child, but had a urethra surgery when I was almost 8 yrs old, and never had any problems with my kidneys for the past 30 years not even during pregnancies. In any case initially I was a bit uneasy about the whole ketosis thing due to my past kidney troubles, but weight loss was not really happening, so I went for it. I have a drs appointment tomorrow and I am not sure what to tell my Dr about my eating habits.
    We all know that paleo and especially keto lifestyle is not really supported by general practitioners. If I tell my dr about paleo and keto, I am sure she would tell me to stop regardless if it is actually related or not. But actually it may be the cause of my kidney problems.
    I would appreciate any advice or experience you can share.

    No clue--I hope you get some answers!

    Some thoughts:
    1. Try to find a new doctor. As you stated yourself, she's probably not going to support Paleo/keto and will likely jump to blame that instead of looking for the true underlying cause. Protein is generally the culprit in kidney issues that stem from macronutrients, not fat. As long as your protein didn't increase, it shouldn't really be a factor.
    2. Since you have a history of kidney troubles, it is possible the protein amount you're eating is too much for you now that your diet has changed, especially if you're not doing strength training (and actually putting that protein to good use). It might be worth trying to cut down on it. Make sure you're drinking enough water, too.
    3. A quick search on keto and kidney pain turns up some comments from people that too much starch aggravates their kidney issues. It might be worth revisiting the source of your carbs and try keeping them to non-starchy sources and maybe dropping them a little more.
    4. Kidney pain also has other sources, such as kidney stones. These are often build ups of minerals (most often, calcium). They're painful, but for the most part, can be passed with no long term damage. Just make sure to drink plenty of water. ( http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/kidney-stones/DS00282/DSECTION=causes ) Also, see if you're taking in too much calcium. One of the biggest fears people (especially women) have when going Paleo is the amount of calcium in the diet due to the reduction or elimination of dairy products. Dr. Cordain has mentioned in some of his books that calcium intake isn't as important as calcium absorption and the balance between calcium and potassium, and the Paleo diet removes a lot of the compounds that inhibit calcium absorption, and can increase consumption of potassium. So, it might be worth, again, looking at what you're eating (and supplements) and seeing whether you're eating too much calcium.
    5. Are you absolutely sure it's kidney pain? One thing I learned recently is that there's a supporting muscle that runs from the spine, through the pelvic bone, and to the inner thigh. In Yoga at least, it's known as the Psoas muscle and is also the top part of the hip flexors. Mine's injured right now, and lifting anything of enough weight to engage that area is something that aggravates it. The pain, for me, goes deeper than the typical back muscle pain, and isn't helped by the typical muscle pain relief methods, so it's still sometimes difficult for me to believe that it's muscle pain, despite diagnosis from my GP and confirmation from a physical therapist.

Can The Human Body Turn Excess Glucose Into Proteins?

Answered Apr 19, 2016 Author has 8.4k answers and 5.9m answer views No. Glucose is absorbed into our living cells via insulin for instant energy and any excess energy will be first stored in our liver and muscle glycogen then once your glycogen storages are full, they will be converted into fatty acids. Glucose is hydrocarbon chain while amino acids have nitride in the backbone. You can't create nitride out of nowhere. Answered Dec 26, 2017 Author has 1.5k answers and 370.1k answer views Yes. Glucose is the starting point for the synthesis of the nonessential amino acids, which are then incorporated into proteins. A simple pathway to illustrate the point is glucose pyruvate alanine. The last step involves transamination, so you need glucose plus nitrogen from the bodys nitrogen pool. Excess glucose can not be directly converted into protein as it is converted into glycogen and beyond its storage of glycogen in liver and muscles cells into fats. But glucose involved in metabolic pathway indirectly contribute to protein formation. Proteins are made up of amino acids. Amino acids has amino group and a carbon skeleton. During amino acid synthesis amino group for most of amino acid is Continue reading >>

    Sick child with normal blood sugar but ketones in urine?

    My 5yr old has type 1, and has the flu. Her blood sugar is pretty normal to sometimes low as she does not want to eat but is drinking fluids. I tested her urine for ketones and they are 2+. I was told to increase her bg and give insulin every hour. does this make any sense?

  2. foxl

    2+ seems high. Ketones can simply indicate that you are burning fat as fuel -- either your own or dietary.
    My non-D daughter, now 10, used to get horrible ketone breath because when ill, she would NOT EAT!
    But GIVE INSULIN every HOUR??? No.

  3. furball64801

    I would not think insulin every hour could be regulated and you would have the stacking affect, make sure she has plenty of fluid.
