I've been trying to figure out how the Gerson therapy can reverse cancer when it does not incorporate ketosis. When you look at disease from the lactic acidosis standpoint then it makes sense that a vegan based therapy can be clinically equivalent to ketosis which can be high animal fat and moderate protein.

Efficacia della SLED nellIRA da acidosi lattica associata allassunzione di metformina in quattro pazienti LAcidosi lattica, associata allimpiego di metformina nella nostra esperienza, non una rara complicanza. Essa potenzialmente fatale solo se non trattata. Il farmaco pu provocare Acidosi lattica per la presenza di concause che facilitano la tossicit del farmaco come la disidratazione, linsufficienza renale acuta, lipossia, lepatopatia, la cardiopatia, luso di mezzi di contrasto o per luso della stessa a dosi incongrue. I quattro casi da noi osservati nel corso di appena 4 mesi, in pazienti con presenza di lievi comorbilit, sono correlati alluso di metformina a dosaggi superiori ai 2 grammi die. Questo dosaggio sembra essere il fattore chiave dei numerosi casi osservati. La terapia di supporto, rappresentata dallespansione del volume, dal supporto aminico e dal rimpiazzo di bicarbonato non risulta essere efficace se contemporaneamente non sinizia subito un trattamento sostitutivo.

    So after months of interest and reading and genuinely scared of it (lots of fat? What the f?) I jumped in this past Monday to get rid of most carbs and go keto. Just so you have an idea of my current health and fitness Here's an overview :
    275 pounds.
    6'2
    Pre Diabetes
    Hypothyroidism
    High blood pressure
    Lazy Vesicle
    So as you see, I am quite screwed. It's just been thanks to a series of life decisions : constant drinking, bad food, overall high levels of stress always, etc. What kicked me in into this? Sugar. My fasting glucose was about 100 for the past several months but lately I am getting readings over 115. This has scared the hell out of me. I do not want to live with diabetes.... NO. So I decided to jump into doing the ketogenic diet this past Monday. On Sunday I went shopping and following several guides here in Reddit I bought some foods I wasn't buying due to being "bad"... Bacon, sausage, more red meats, avocado oil, coconut oil and like 3 dozen eggs. I cut my carbs cold... I am trying to track them but I am pretty sure I've been under 30 these past days. My only carbs are from coffee with milk and the veggies and some almonds.
    Truth be told, I am scared. I spoke with my doctor about it and it was a straight "No, you are gonna die" type of thing but I shrugged it off and jumped in. I have been taught since little that fat is bad. I am going to give this a long chance. Hopefully I'll post updates and I'll get some people to join over to this ho journey. My support system is weak, since most of my friends keep saying "WTF are you doing?" and even my girlfriend is a bit wary although giving me a chance.
    I am on the third day, no keto flu yet. I do have a slight headache but that's about it. I've been drinking tons of water (I usually do, I like water) and I upped sodium intake today. I am walking 3 miles every two days since February and so far I haven't had to change that due to the diet. This weekend will be challenging as people are coming over and the peer pressure to drink and eat will be there. I read that Michelob Ultras are a good substitute since they are low carb so I may drink a few just to avoid the pressure. If some of you have tips for this I'd appreciate it.
    I will weight myself this week but this Monday I weighted 275. I expect to post updates every few days. I don't have a weight goal honestly just feel better and be slightly healthier. That's all I want. /rant over

    Best of luck op.

    Hi! I started last week, we can be keto buddies <3
    That said, I don't have much for advice other than to get some chicken and beef buillions and drink some broth if you start feeling shitty. It helps balance your sodium and electrolytes and, well, tastes good too!
    Also you may have to supplement potassium and magnesium, depending on your dietary preferences. I'm going to buy some powder with my next paycheck (my potassium is really damn low), I'll let you know how it goes.
    But I mainly came in to offer you good vibes and steal some of the advice you'll get. :3~ And no, you're not going to die, lol. You might feel like it for a bit with keto flu, but you won't actually die :p

    Liver enzyme went up crazy high after 2 weeks of ketogenic diet.

    Hi, I started ketogenic diet 3 weeks ago and I had blood test 2 weeks ago.
    Today, I got the result and I am shocked.
    My liver markers have been normal all my life but this test shows that my ALT and AST both went up crazy high.
    ALT is 246 (normal range should be lower than 42) and AST is 122 (normal should be less than 39)!!
    Is this acceptable while on the early stage of Ketogenic diet?
    Any input would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    When my liver's ALT and AST were over 200 I had an inflamed liver from too much alcohol consumption.
    That event occurred six years ago. I stopped all alcohol consumption since that event.
    Before I started my ketogenic diet a year ago the ALT and AST were back into the thirties.
    I have not had my ALT and AST tested since I have been into Ketosis.
    I think a post is the wrong place to seek input.
    The high ALT and AST I think should be discussed with a doctor, preferably one familiar with the diet.

    Thank you for your feedback.
    Did you lower your ALT and AST naturally or by using medication/supplement?
    And yes, I think having a discussion with a doctor is the way to go but it is very hard to find a doctor who is truly well versed in Ketogenic diet related medical markers.

Anion gap usmle - anion gap metabolic acidosis normal anion gap metabolic acidosis

Normal Anion Gap Acidosis

In renal physiology , normal anion gap acidosis, and less precisely non-anion gap acidosis, is an acidosis that is not accompanied by an abnormally increased anion gap . The most common cause of normal anion gap acidosis is diarrhea with a renal tubular acidosis being a distant second. The differential diagnosis of normal anion gap acidosis is relatively short (when compared to the differential diagnosis of acidosis): Diarrhea : due to a loss of bicarbonate. This is compensated by an increase in chloride concentration, thus leading to a normal anion gap, or hyperchloremic, metabolic acidosis. The pathophysiology of increased chloride concentration is the following: fluid secreted into the gut lumen contains higher amounts of Na+ than Cl; large losses of these fluids, particularly if volume is replaced with fluids containing equal amounts of Na+ and Cl, results in a decrease in the plasma Na+ concentration relative to the Clconcentration. This scenario can be avoided if formulations such as lactated Ringers solution are used instead of normal saline to replace GI losses. [2] Continue reading >>

    after my first weekend carbup, 2 days of gorging, i took me until this morning to get back into ketosis, the first time i got in it took me 2 days, is this because of all the caffeine ive beeen drinking? anybody else have this observation

    YES, thats why I've been asking about caffiene a lot, because most people says it has no effect.
    I think it actually may temporarily kick me out of ketosis when I drink it. It definitly has 'some' type of effect on insulin, and I know some people say heavy coffee drinking can lead to insulin resistance.
    Hopefully someone can clear all this up
    EDIT- I didn't mean "YES" saying that IS WHY you're having trouble getting back into ketosis, I was saying "YES" like in excitement seeing that I'm not the only one that has been thinking this

    Has no effect on me, and I live off of caffeine (shiftwork). It could be that you ate so many carbs over the weekend that it took this long to get back. When I did a dirty carb up it took me until wed. to get back to ketosis. Clean it only takes me 1-2 days.

    Abstract Although metformin has become a drug of choice for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus, some patients may not receive it owing to the risk of lactic acidosis. Metformin, along with other drugs in the biguanide class, increases plasma lactate levels in a plasma concentration-dependent manner by inhibiting mitochondrial respiration predominantly in the liver. Elevated plasma metformin concentrations (as occur in individuals with rena ...

  • How Metformin Cause Lactic Acidosis

    Lactic acidosis is a form of metabolic acidosis that begins in the kidneys. People with lactic acidosis have kidneys that are unable to remove excess acid from their body. If lactic acid builds up in the body more quickly than it can be removed, acidity levels in bodily fluids — such as blood — spike. This buildup of acid causes an imbalance in the body’s pH level, which should always be slightly alkaline instead of acidic. There are a few ...
