    fructose and low carb (ketone) diet

    I'm interested in the very low carb diet - I've been following it on here and it all seems to make sense. However, I eat a lot of fruit, and am interested to know how much I should curtail this because of the fructose in it?

  2. RosieLKH

    Check out the carbs in the fruit you eat on the My Fitness Pal website. I would imagine it would not fit into a very low carb diet, but it depends how many grams of carbs you plan to have daily. I've had to leave them out, though I sometimes have berries in small amounts.

    fructose is mainly processed in the liver, so it is best to be avoided... as the liver is in type 2 one ot the major problems as it also does seem to convert proteins into glucose in a higher rate than in non diabetics..
    the worst spiking fruits are mango, banana, pineapple, watermelon but all fruits seem to spike very high and rapidly which is to be avoided as much as possible..
    berrries have less fruit sugar and much more fibres and if you eat those in smaller amounts with cream it is a much better choice.
    in this link you can check out how high in the glychemic index the food you will eat is.. try to mostly eat foods under 30 in the glychemic index

New Invokana Ketoacidosis Lawsuit Joins Hundreds In Invokana Mdl

New Invokana Ketoacidosis Lawsuit Joins Hundreds in Invokana MDL A man has filed an Invokana ketoacidosis lawsuit within the larger multidistrict litigation taking place in New Jersey federal court. As of the last update, the plaintiffs lawsuit joins approximately 444 others with similar allegations surrounding the drug. Plaintiff William B. says he began taking Invokana in May 2015 to treat his type-2 diabetes. Approximately two months later, William says, he was diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis, the Invokana ketoacidosis lawsuit states. He was then required to be hospitalized on a number of occasions and required substantial medical treatment for his injuries. Invokana (canagliflozin) was approved by the FDA in March 2013 to treat patients with type-2 diabetes. It belongs to a class of medications known as sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitors. Several other drugsare included in this class. These medications work by inhibiting the reabsorption of renal glucose, which then getsexcreted in the urine rather than being reabsorbed into the body. While this is effective in lowering blood sugar levels, it also tends to put a great deal of stress on the kidneys of patients who Continue reading >>

    question about ketosis. embarrassing but necessary

    So I never know if I'm really in ketosis. I don't pee on those sticks to know for sure. I do incorporate carbs into my life--a small amount of chocolate, salads, dressings, etc. Nothing too crazy and I try to stay under 50-75 grams a day (estimate)--some days are lower than others. I get over 100 grams of protein a day and drink TONS of fluids.
    So here is my problem. I STINK. I mean whenever I move around I feel like I smell myself--and this is the embarrassing part, it is from my crotch (god I hate that word). Now I've asked my husband if he can smell it when I'm near him, he says no. I fart yes, but feel like the smell is not from my tu****'s stronger and embarrassing to me.
    I seem to recall Kirmy talking about this once. Does it go away? If I'm not in ketosis is there another diet reason I might smell? Or perhaps it is just the gas and I'm going crazy? I don't think I have to say this, but of course, I'm super clean, change my clothes regularly etc.
    I'm going to see some of you next week so please don't go "sniffin' around." HAHAHA!
    (BTW, lots less gas now that I take a probiotic and have given up eggs)

  2. mquirkygirl

    It could be from your vitamins. Have you also ruled out a bacterial infection down there? Ketosis, you'll also TASTE it. It's just a metallicy BLECH taste in your mouth all the time.

  3. Princesss

    Could you have an infection down there like a yeast infection or vaginosis? Also hormonal changes can definitely cause body odor and maybe some foods like asparagus and broccoli? I know it makes my urine smell funky. I don't mean to sound gross but I guess it depends on what type of smell it is.
    I don't think its ketosis but anything is possible. If it is try increasing your water intake to try and flush out the ketones.

Injured Patient Files Invokana Ketoacidosis Lawsuit

Injured Patient Files Invokana Ketoacidosis Lawsuit A patient prescribeda diabetes medication that he thought would help him ultimately experienced side effects and filed an Invokana ketoacidosis lawsuit.

Chief among this Invokana lawsuit and other complaints is the development of diabetic ketoacidosis. This condition explains what happens when a persons body turns to burn fat primarily rather than glucose. When the fats are broken down, ketones are put into perso Continue reading >>

    > Ketosis taste in mouth?

    I caught a glimpse of a thread somewhere mentioning a taste in the mouth that some people get when they are in ketosis....anyone know what I'm talking about?

  2. MorganMac

    Yep, it's rather common. Ketone bodies (such as acetone) are excreted from the body in the breath and urine. Many people get "keto breath" for awhile when they start a LC diet :)
