    Please don't laugh,I am really scared!I am on a high protein diet and have noticed very cloudy urine. I did some research on the net and it said collect your urine and hold it up to the light in a clear glass to inspect it. I noticed so much particles some bigger than otehr floating all through urine,with a strong odor to it. I drank a ton of water and it seems to look better and much more diluted. also,I was just at drs apt about 3 weeks ago and they did a dip-stick and said it was normal.Am I over reacting and just need more fluids? Thanks yall.

    hello .unless youre having other symptoms i wouldnt worry too much about the cloudy urine...try adding more water to your daily consumption and see how it goes.if for some reason it doesnt clear up you should take another sample to your dr to be tested..cloudy urine can sometimes be a symptom of a urinary tract infection..good luck

    I don't know if you eat alot of meat on your "high protein diet," but if so you are adding an enormous amount of uric acid (nitrogenous waste), growth hormones, steroids, and antibiotics into your body. You may wish to reevaluate your diet if this is the case.

    I disagree with some of the answers here.
    Keto is Atkins.
    Dr. Atkins said to "Eat all the meat that you want" knowing that people tend to tire of eating too much meat and it becomes a self-limiting behavior. Keto just provides a target protein target to hit.
    Atkins gave the advice to keep to 20g of carbs the first two weeks and then allowed the dieter to increase their carb intake until they fell out of ketosis. Keto says the same thing and notes that the critical carbohydrate level to remain in ketosis varies for everybody depending on their age, level of metabolic damage, and activity level. Some here will advocate zero carbs, some 20g carbs, some 50g carbs. Dr. Atkins' guidance still applies - you need to determine what works for you.
    Atkins starts out with a very limited food list and strict rules. Keto is not so limited, and instead focuses more on a "If It Fits Your Macros" approach. However, quite often, there are postings here where people say that they are confused and just want that very simple food list, and I think that is what Dr. Atkins discovered.

    Good perspective! Thanks!

    IIFYM is what seems to be the FOTM in /r/keto but Keto to me has always just meant consuming low enough carbs for your body to burn fat for energy.

Diabetes Medical Terminology

Serious complication related to a deficiency of insulin and increase in insulin counter-regulatory hormones Enzyme that rapidly degrades active incretin hormones after they are released Normal concentration of glucose in the blood. Also called normoglycemia Stored form of glucose in the liver and skeletal muscle conversion of glycogen to glucose in the body The synthesis of glucose in the body from non-carbohydrates, such as protein or fats A value that represents the percent of hemoglobin in the blood that is glycosylated. This percent reflects the glycemic control over the past 2 to 3 months. Serious condition characterized by hyperglycemia, hyperosmolarity and dehydration and the absence of ketoacidosis that may occur in type 2 diabetes Most common acute complication of diabetes; occurs from a relative excess of insulin in the blood and is characterized by below-normal blood glucose levels A condition characterized by the abnormal accumulation of ketones in the body tissues and fluid Breakdown of fats and lipids to fatty acids (alternative fuel source) Small blood vessel disease caused by long term exposure to hyperglycemia; most commonly affects the eyes, kidneys, and nerves L Continue reading >>

    High Fat diet causes insulin resistance??

    Are these guys saying that High Fat diets cause insulin resitance?
    http://care.diabetesjournals.org/con...4/11/1911.full

    Dietary fat has long been considered a potentially important modifiable risk factor for diabetes. The evidence for an adverse effect of high total fat and high saturated fat intake on blood glucose levels in nondiabetic populations is quite consistent, whereas the evidence for an effect of polyunsaturated fat intake is less clear (
    1). Positive associations have been found between the risk of type 2 diabetes or hyperglycemia and total fat intake in both prospective (2,3) and cross-sectional (4,5) studies. Positive associations have also been found with saturated (3,6,7) and animal (8) fat and meat (9) intake. A positive association was reported between polyunsaturated fat intake and hyperglycemia in the Hoorn Study (10), although a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes was associated with increased vegetable fat intake (11) and polyunsaturated fat intake (12) in the U.S. Nurses’ Health Study. Eating fish, which is high in n-3 polyunsaturated fat, has a beneficial effect on glycemia (13,14). In a number of other studies, there were no reported associations with dietary fat intake (15,16,17,18,19).

    i've been attending a diabetes class offered by the local seventh day adventist wellness clinic. they 'preach' that a diet high in animal fat is one of the leading causes of t2. they believe that the fat 'coats' the insulin receptors and blocks the insulin from opening up the cell so that glucose can enter.
    they also say that by eating a vegan diet, along with exercise, a person can 'reverse' their t2 diabetes since this will 'cleanse' the body of that unwanted fatty coating on the insulin receptors.
    needless to say, i'm not quite ready to switch to totally vegan. but i will continue to eat more veggies

    I have read that it blocks the receptors too. Thanks for mentioning that.
