Ketogenic Diet And Physiological Insulin Resistance | Low Carb Diet And Dawn Phenomenon

Dawn Phenomenon Ketogenic Diet and Dawn Phenomenon ketogenic diet Physiological Insulin Resistance low carb diet Dawn Phenomenon Low Carb Diet Physiological Insulin Resistance Physiological Insulin Resistance Dawn Phenomenon and Physiological Insulin Resistance Have you been on a low-carb or ketogenic diet for some time no and perplexed why your morning blood glucose readings are on the high end? Did you know that it is quite common for long-term ketogenic dieters to have morning fasted blood glucose readings that average 100-125mg/dl? This is rather common, albeit normal and sometimes referred to as Dawn Phenomenon or Physiological Insulin Resistance. Dawn Phenomenon is a natural rise in blood sugar because o a surge of hormones secreted at night which trigger your liver to dump sugar into your blood to help prepare you for the day. Another term for this is Physiological Insulin Resistance. A good description of this phenomenon comes from Chris Kresser, M.S., L.Ac: Very low-carb diets will produce elevated fasting blood glucose levels. Why? Because low-carb diets induce insulin resistance. Restricting carbohydrates produces a natural drop in insulin levels, which in turn activate Continue reading >>

    A couple of weeks back I decided to do a ketogenic experiment, I've been eating pretty low carbs for a while seeing as I'd removed grains from my diet (I occasionally had potato and rice) and got my carbs from veggies and some fruit. Thanks to /r/keto I managed to prep and plan everything properly and the first week I dropped all of the fruit, starchy vegetables, rice and upped my fat intake considerably. And felt terrible. BUT that is all part of the journey and I knew I'd going through that before I started so I just pushed on.
    By the end of the first week I cut my carbs further and upped my fat intake more. Towards the middle of the week I started to become "fat adapted" in the sense that I could function as a human being again. However, yesterday evening I made the conscious decision (not down to cravings) to come out of ketosis after continually assessing the whole journey and weighing up the pros and cons.
    The reasons I decided to stop
    I found that keeping such control over my macros was taking the enjoyment out of eating
    The huge rise in fat meant that I had to find huge supplementary sources of fat, called fat bombs by most keto followers, which after two weeks I just didn't want to eat
    Despite stabilising and having cravings disappear, my mood stabilise and rarely feeling hungry the way I felt just wasn't worth the hassle of staying in the diet
    Despite the fact that the body can obviously function in ketosis I'm not convinced it is in any way ideal for me and doesn't feel particularly natural
    Eating a ketogenic diet has helped my body burn fat for fuel and the experiment has taught me a lot and helped refine the way I want to approach food. In fact, it has been a complete success I just didn't choose to carry on with it. From now on I'll be eating a moderate carb diet (somewhere between 100g - 150g per day I'd guess in advanced) with more falling on exercise days and I'll be eating most of my carbs in the evening 2 - 3 hours before bed because I have come to believe that is an optimum time to have them. I also won't be scared of having a banana after working out (which I haven't done at all in the last two weeks because it wasn't possible in the early stages of ketosis)
    Anyway, I thought I'd post my experiences here in case anyone was interested.

    Just curious...how did you determine you where in Ketosis?

  3. LiamT

    I was eating <20g of carbs a day and I had keto breath and urine... My intake of fat was 80% of my calories and I was taking in around 70g of protein a day.

What is INSULIN RESISTANCE? What does INSULIN RESISTANCE mean? INSULIN RESISTANCE meaning - INSULIN RESISTANCE definition - INSULIN RESISTANCE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Insulin resistance (IR) is a pathological condition in which cells fail to respond normally to the hormone insulin. The body produces insulin when glucose starts to be released into the bloodstream from the digestion of carbohydrates in the diet. Normally this insulin response triggers glucose being taken into body cells, to be used for energy, and inhibits the body from using fat for energy. The concentration of glucose in the blood decreases as a result, staying within the normal range even when a large amount of carbohydrates is consumed. When the body produces insulin under conditions of insulin resistance, the cells are resistant to the insulin and are unable to use it as effectively, leading to high blood sugar. Beta cells in the pancreas subsequently increase their production of insulin, further contributing to a high blood insulin level. This often remains undetected and can contribute to a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes or laten

Low Carbing And Physiological Insulin Resistance

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community Low Carbing and Physiological Insulin Resistance On a T1 thread ( ), @azure , in past #35, you post: "I agree @Garr Eating a moderate level of carbs can give you a great HbA1C as long as you apply yourself. That way you also avoid the physiological insulin resistance that so,often comes with cutting out carbs and ketosis. You also usually don't need to bolus for protein when you have carbs with it. It's a total fallacy to say that LCHF is the only way to get good results. Controlling carbs, yes, but that doesn't mean you have to cut them out completely." I would be interested to learn what percentage of low carbers you believe develop physiological insulin resistance (PIR), as a result of the LC approach, and at what point they develop it? I started a new thread to prevent derailing the source thread, and think others could be interested too. For those reading who are T2 (or other non-insulin dependant members) who have not fully read the source thread, please note it is a T1 thread, so please do not post on there, unless you have something both relevant and on-t Continue reading >>

    Yea when I was "adjusting" I kept getting massive headaches and feverish. I woke up every two hours if I was sleeping reasonably well, and sometimes I just drifted in and out of consciousness by the minutes. It's passed now, but I don't remember it taking 5 days.

    How long have you been doing it?
    Maybe it takes longer for me because my metabolism is more screwed up eheh. I've been a mega-sugar addict all my life. This is a HUGE change for me. At least, I don't feel as sluggish now as I did on day 3 so that's pretty good!

    cheapest ketostix (UK)

    hi all
    just wondering where everyone gets their ketostix? The cheapest I've
    found is £4.25 for 50 at my local chemist. on-line prices are about the
    same if not more when you add P&P.
    p.s. they dont necassarily have to be bayer ketostix. I lived in turkey
    for a while and used an unbranded make which worked just as well.
    any bargains to be had?

    any bargains to be had?
    Some people have found bargains at online auctions, but they weren't
    being sold at Ebay and such back when I was using them.
    The best way to create a bargain is to cut them in half lengthwise,
    to double your ketosticks. This should be done as quickly as possible,
    without touching the pads, because exposure to air and moisture makes
    them expire sooner. Cutting them makes them a little more susceptible
    (than whole ones) to washing the reagent off when passed through
    the stream, though, so dipping them in a small sample might give
    better results.
    I didn't find anything cheaper than the Bayer at the local discount
    pharmacy (WalMart), but I only used them for the first few months.
    After a while, I could tell when I was in or out of ketosis, because
    I feel a lot warmer in ketosis -- I'm comfortable with the thermostat
    set about 5 degrees lower when I'm in ketosis than when I'm not.
    Newbies should be aware that some low-carb branded ketosticks
    (I don't remember which brand) are being sold on the shelf near
    lowcarb shake mixes and bars in some stores, but cost hugely more
    than the ones you need to ask the pharmacist for (something like $18
    for 25 LC branded ones, vs about $15 for 100 Bayer at WalMart).
