The 11 Most Common Keto Side Effects

The 11 Most Common Keto Side Effects The ketogenic diet is a powerful new tool to hit the mainstream recently. This style of eating has substantial data behind it showing that it can boost fat-burning, reduce inflammation, boost cognitive performance, and more. What has not been covered quite enough are common keto side effects and how you can avoid them to make the best of this powerful eating style. Although there can be many different side effects that manifest while becoming keto-adapted, many of them stem from similar underlying issues. In this article, I outline what those underlying issues are, their related side effects, and simple strategies to overcome them so you can become keto-adapted as smoothly as possible. Three Primary Causes Although there are a variety of symptoms that can arise during keto adaptation, they mostly manifest from the same three underlying causes. Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis dysfunction, and electrolyte/mineral deficiencies. While these three causes are seemingly different, they are actually all related. When becoming keto-adapted initially, your body has been running on sugar for years. When you suddenl Continue reading >>

    Has anyone switched from keto to paleo?

    I'm considering switching to paleo from doing keto for over a year now because it seems so much naturally healthier and I'd like to be able to eat fruit again. I find myself breaking keto more often and I think it's because I'm getting bored. I'm hypoglycemic, so keto's pretty awesome because my sugar levels aren't constantly going up and down. Curious if anyone's made this switch and if there are any tips, that would be amazing.
    Thanks guys!

    Why not eat veggies and maintain low carb diet? I eat a ton of veggies, just not starchy ones.

What Is Ketosis?

"Ketosis" is a word you'll probably see when you're looking for information on diabetes or weight loss. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? That depends. Ketosis is a normal metabolic process, something your body does to keep working. When it doesn't have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, it burns fat instead. As part of this process, it makes ketones. If you're healthy and eating a balanced diet, your body controls how much fat it burns, and you don't normally make or use ketones. But when you cut way back on your calories or carbs, your body will switch to ketosis for energy. It can also happen after exercising for a long time and during pregnancy. For people with uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a sign of not using enough insulin. Ketosis can become dangerous when ketones build up. High levels lead to dehydration and change the chemical balance of your blood. Ketosis is a popular weight loss strategy. Low-carb eating plans include the first part of the Atkins diet and the Paleo diet, which stress proteins for fueling your body. In addition to helping you burn fat, ketosis can make you feel less hungry. It also helps you maintain muscle. For health Continue reading >>

    Stages of DKA/Any Personal Experiences?

    After 19.5 years of Type 1 diabetes I should probably know everything about DKA but thankfully up to this point I have avoided any hint of DKA so out of sight, out of mind! I of course know the basics, the danger signs, symptoms etc. but the basic info does not tell you a lot about the progression, stages, etc. so in my mind my takeaways were "don't stay high too long, take your insulin, if you are high stay hydrated,"....good to go right?
    So yesterday around 4 AM my blood sugar started to rocket up after being normal for most of the night. Took a bolus to bring it down and when I woke around 6 my CGM said 250 but tested my blood sugar, it was 190. A little annoyed as my bolus should have brought this down but good enough to continue with my plan so I went for a 30 min run. After exercise it came down to about 150, I was happy so I did not think too much of it.
    Got it the car, ate two pieces of toast, and on my drive to work (45 minutes) my blood sugar started to rocket up! Gave myself a large bolus to bring it down and by the time I got to work it still was climbing higher and higher (over 400). Changed my infusion site (it was leaking so I probably was getting very little insulin), gave myself a bolus with a needle, drank a lot of water and just tried to focus on work. Started to come down very slowly but it was coming down and around 1230 I was down to about 150 around the same time I started feeling physically ill (lots of nausea, threw up once, lethargic) and that is when it hit me, could it be DKA? Since my blood sugar was not too bad I did not feel I was in immediate danger but I read that DKA can change your blood chemistry so I was a little worried about any cascading effects. My body felt awful, I just threw up, my stomach was upset, I didn't feel like eating. I forced myself to eat my modest lunch and closely monitored but still didn't feel good for most of the day and I left work about an hour early.
    I rode it out and I was fine but the experience just got me thinking. Has anyone ever experienced DKA? How fast did it come on? Any noticeable stages? Just curious about any personal experiences. Read that DKA can happen fast but when you are possibly experiencing it, it still surprised me at the speed of it. Don't know if I was actually experiencing DKA but it certainly seems plausible! Thoughts?

    Sorry, no personal experience here, but vomiting can be an early sign. And yes, DKA will change your blood chemistry to the point of metabolic acidosis. Too much acidosis is not compatible with life -- very serious stuff!
    Do you have urine keto strips? You can check ketones with them if your blood sugar is high.

    I've been on the verge twice in my 50 years of D. The first time was when I was about 16 or so and I'd had the flu. One of those horrible ones making the rounds that was killing some of the elderly that caught it. I was vomiting for 3 days and on day 3 it started getting worse, rather than better (keep in mind that this was in the 70s, so horrible insulins and no home testing) so my Mom took me to the hospital. They said my blood chemistry was just starting to go "off". The second time was when I had peritonitis (so got really sick, really fast) and went to hospital in the morning. Again, this was in the days before lantus. I took my morning shot of N, and went to the ER. By midnight they had given me no insulin, hadn't tested my blood sugar in 6 hours (the nurse was refusing to) and so I called home to get my insulin. The next morning a young resident cheerfully told me that I had "been on the verge of DKA, but we saved you!!!!". I informed her that they were the ones that had pushed me there.
    As far as for myself, I know coming close I have always been pretty ill before I got close to the edge. So if you are taking a reasonable amount of insulin and still feel ok, I suspect that DKA is the last thing you need to worry about. Especially if you can keep fluids down along with your bg.
    I really doubt if you were experiencing DKA. Don't forget, the K stands for Keto (acidosis). So you have to have rampaging ketones that acidify your blood. It's not a single day process, especially with insulin on board.

We're on a myth-busting mission. We want everyone to know the facts about diabetes. There is more than one type of diabetes. The causes and treatments are different. But they can all lead to the same serious health problems if not managed properly. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition usually diagnosed in childhood or as a young adult. It has nothing to do with eating too many sweets or being overweight. You have to take insulin every day to survive. Type 2 diabetes is usually diagnosed in the over 40s. You're more likely to get Type 2 if you're overweight. But other things can increase your chance of getting Type 2 as well. It's often managed by diet, but some people need medication too. Other types of diabetes include MODY, gestational, neonatal, Wolfram and Alstrom. So what? Avoid generalising. Make it clear what type of diabetes you're talking about.

Is The Keto Diet Safe? 10 Myth-busting Arguments For The Safety Of Ketosis

Is ketosis safe? The truth is that we can’t say for certain that it is 100% safe. Humans don’t understand everything under the branch of nutritional science and probably won’t for a very long time. As an individual, the only thing you can do is take a look at the research yourself and form your own conclusion. Personally, through the reading I’ve done and the experience I’ve had with the Keto diet, I’ve formed my own conclusion that ketosis is safe. Could I be wrong? Absolutely. But I could also be right. I’m willing to take that risk in order to follow a diet which could maximize longevity, well being and function. My personal conclusion shouldn’t matter to you though. You need to do your own research and come to your own conclusion. I’ve put together this post to organize all of the issues surrounding the safety of ketosis so that you can make your own decision. In trying to prove something to be safe there are two ways to go about it. Disprove the claims of danger Show evidence which may be correlated with safety This article will dispel the top 10 claims people make in an argument to label ketosis as dangerous. Like I said, the science on ketosis is still quit Continue reading >>

    Ketones found in urine-is our diet bad for our kidneys?

    Hi there-
    I went to see my PCP for a urinary tract infection today and she said there was a lot of stuff in my urine-ketones, blood (which is always there-which is why I also see a nephrologist), and some protein. She thinks the ketones are because of my high protein diet and she told me to try to eat a more balanced diet (more carbs, fruits, veggies). How is this possible with such a tiny pouch? Has this happened to anyone else and if so-what did you do? Is it dangerous to have ketones in your urine? I do worry about my kidney function. My nephrologist likes to do labwork (blood/urine) every 6 months to keep an eye on things. He doesn't think my labs have warranted doing a kidney biopsy at this point. The last time I saw the nephrologist was before my RNY. I just don't want my diet to be damaging to my kidneys.
    Has this happened to anyone--kidney damage as a result of the post-op diet? I know that it will be easier to eat a more balanced diet as a I get further out, right?
    Thank you all for your advice and help!
    Sincerely,
    Pam

    I know that when the atkins diet was really popular, more people started talking about ketones in the urine. The big deal about it is that protein molecules are actually really big and more difficult for the kidneys to filter. Therefore the kidneys can be damaged overtime. Now, I'm not sure about how long it takes or how much protein it would take to do that. All I know is that, last year before I even considered WLS, my NUT put me on a protein sparing modified fast. It was a diet that was primarily protein only. It was very high amounts of protein. Greater than 140mg a day. I was told that I would do the diet for 3 months and then I had to go off of it for 3 months and then back on for three months simply because of the risk of damage to my kidneys. I don't consume that much protein since surgery. I try to make sure I get in 60mg a day. I would be curious to find out if kidney damage is a possibilty for us. In all my research I have not heard of that being a side effect.

    Before I had my surgery, I did talk to my nephrologist about the high protein diet and he thought it would be fine. He said that 60 g. of protein is really not that much. What is considered the "normal" intake of protein (for people who haven't had wls)? I think it's around 50 g. of protein. I'm not sure, though. And the reality is-I struggle to get 60 g. in per day. Most days I don't even get there-it's more like 50 or 55 g.
    That is interesting about the protein molecules being big.
    Thank you so much for your reply!
    Pam :)
