Having some of the signs of diabetes doesn't mean you definitely have the condition, but you should always contact your doctor, just to make sure. Most early symptoms are from higher-than-normal levels of glucose, a kind of sugar, in your blood. Common Symptoms The common symptoms of diabetes include: Going to the toilet a lot, especially at night. Being really thirsty. Feeling more tired than usual. Losing weight without trying to. Genital itching or thrush. Cuts and wounds take longer to heal. Blurred vision. Type 1 Diabetes Although the majority of people with Type 1 diabetes are diagnosed in childhood and early adulthood, the symptoms are the same at any age. Adults diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes may not recognise their symptoms as quickly as children, which in turn will prove detrimental as diagnosis then treatment may be delayed. High levels of glucose being passed in the urine are a perfect breeding grou

Eating Disorders Signs And Symptoms

Although eating disorders are most common among female adolescents and young adults, they can affect any age, or gender. According to the National Eating Disorder Association, 20 million women and 10 million men will suffer from an eating disorder in their lifetime. There are several different types of eating disorders including, Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating disorder, etc. Although each is unique and characterized by different symptoms, they are all associated with extreme emotions, beliefs, and behaviors related to weight and food. Anorexia Nervosa: 90-95% of individuals with Anorexia Nervosa are female, and it is one of the most common mental health diagnoses in young women. Most individuals with this illness fail to recognize the seriousness of the illness. Health consequences include dehydration, muscle loss, overall weakness, abnormally low heart rate and blood pressure resulting in increased risk of heart failure, eventual loss of bone density, and possible kidney damage. Anorexia Nervosa can be life threating. The signs and symptoms include: Self-esteem issues related to body image Inadequate food intake and an extreme low body weight Extreme fear or a Continue reading >>

    Hi! So based on the excellent advice of everyone here, I'm on a daily limit of 25g total carbs each day, and I've held to that the last three days. I was thinking about testing my ketones again this weekend (after about 5 days of super strict restriction), but I'm wondering - what is the best time of day to test?

    I don't have T2DM, but am I still impacted by the dawn phenomenon? Should I plan for afternoon? Before or after food? Does any of that matter? I just don't want to waste the little blood strips, cause crap they're expensive!

    I don't know the answer, cos I'm new also, but following the thread for this interesting question. Someone in Dudeland knows and will tell us!!

  3. Shortstuff

    The levels are up and down naturally throughout the day. I test at random times just out of curiosity.
    Most people apparently have higher levels later in the day.

Ketosis is the process by which the body, suffering low intake of carbohydrates, instead converts stored fat into energy. During this conversion, ketones are produced as a by-product, causing an unpleasant fruity breath odor that may be mistaken for alcohol. Prolonged severe ketosis can change the acidity of the blood, and may eventually lead to serious damage to the liver and kidneys. Additional information.

    HEY ALL!!
    I AM SOOOOO CONFUSED! I know some people don't think that the strips are accurate (their are many things that can effect the out come, how much water are you drinking, yadda, yadda, yadda) I had to try them !. I bought some last night and according to the color I am in Moderate ketosis. This morning I used one and it is the same. The strips go from Zero, Trace, Low, Moderate, to Large. So does the moderate mean that I AM buring fat as fuel or that I am ALMOST buring fat for fuel? The box and directions don't give and explanation for some odd reason.
    HEEEEELP!! Thanks!

    On the side of the bottle, you should see a like a chart to compare it to.... if you are in moderate ketosis then that's good! The more purple the stick, the more fat you are burning for fuel, which is what you want to do on Atkins. You'll notice that with Atkins, the keto strips are like the scale, you wanna see PURPLE when you test becasue the more ketones in your urine, of course the more fat you burn! Sounds like you are doing good...good luck
    P.S. I'm told that with Atkins even a 'trace' of ketones is good... trying going to www dot lowcarbnexus dot com, that site gives you good info... here's what they say about ketosis:
    Ketosis? - As long as we are on the topic, what about ketosis? Ketosis is the state that your body enters into when you are eating mainly protein and fats, and drastically curtailing your consumption of carbohydrates. As Dr. Atkins says, "There is no lipolysis without ketosis, no ketosis without lipolysis." Lipolysis is, essentially, "fat burning." In other words, this is just what we want! We want to force our bodies to consume stored fat for fuel rather than burn primarily our food. This occurs because protein and fat do not "give up" their stored energy as easily as do carbohydrates. As long as you are eating mainly carbs, especially refined sugars, you will find that your body will burn that as opposed to your fat stores. Testing with LTS, as we have mentioned above, scientifically tests for the process of your body burning it's own fat as fuel. When the sticks turn purple (or a shade thereof), you are burning fat! It is a good feeling! It is especially comforting to see that purple when your scales don't agree that you are losing! Keep in mind that fat loss doesn't always equal weight loss on the scales... immediately. Body weight can be related to water retention, and many other temporary conditions. However, FAT loss is what we want, and you will see measurements change even if your scale does not show it immediately! That WILL follow, of course... just stick with it!
    Some have asked, "Do I have to be in ketosis?" Well, it is perfectly safe to be in what Dr. Atkins calls "Benign Dietary Ketosis" for extended periods. In fact, if you are burning fat, you will be in some amount of ketosis...sometimes just not a measurable amount (with LTS). If you are out of ketosis for extended periods, you won't be burning fat, and therefore, you won't be losing weight! And that's what we are doing the diet to do! Don't confuse ketosis, a safe metabolic state that you enter when you loss weight, with ketoacidosis, a dangerous state that diabetics, in particular, can enter if they get out of proper balance in their insulin / glycogen balance. Many health care professionals and nutritionists are apparently confused by the distinction between these two different states... ketone test strips are used to test both states, but they are quite different!


    Cherimee, BIG THANKS!!!! The info you gave me is sooooo relieving!!! I was so worried! I know that must have takin a while for you to find and type, thank you so much for helping me!

Susan Cornell, PharmD, CDE, FAPhA, FAADE, describes the risks for ketoacidosis and serious urinary tract infection associated with use of SGLT2 inhibitors. This video was recorded at APhA's 2016 Annual Meeting and Exposition in Baltimore, Maryland.

Sglt2 Inhibitors And Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Publications Key Messages Sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors (dapagliflozin, empagliflozin, canagliflozin) have been associated with cases of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). SGLT2 inhibitor-associated DKA may occur within the first few months of treatment and have an atypical presentation. Patients should be informed of the signs and symptoms of DKA and advised to seek immediate medical attention should they experience these symptoms. A number of serious cases of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) have been reported in patients taking sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors (dapagliflozin, empagliflozin, canagliflozin) for type 2 diabetes1. Up to half the reported cases occurred during the first two months of treatment1. DKA is usually associated with raised blood glucose levels. However, in a number of reported cases, patients presented atypically with only a slight increase in blood glucose levels. Early signs and symptoms of ketoacidosis include difficulty breathing, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, excessive thirst, abdominal pain, confusion and unusual fatigue or sleepiness 1. More serious signs and symptoms include dehydration, deep gasping breathing, confusion an Continue reading >>

    Is it possible to stay on ketogenic diet for life-long?

    I have been on ketogenic diet for 2 weeks. It controls my blood sugar level really well. However I am not over weight. And I am worried about potential long term side effects of the diet. For example, high LDL level, steoporosis, auto immune disease, too much weight loss, vesicular stiffness. I was wondering if there is anyone in this forum has been on ketogenic diet for years? And do you experience any side effects from the diet?

  2. Aaron1963

    I've been on a strict ketogenic diet for 6 months, and was doing LCHF for much of the 5 months prior to that but didn't make any attempts at it being ketogenic so I may have been in and out of ketosis some during that period. I now have a blood ketone meter and remain in ketosis according to it.
    I did suffer excessive weight loss initially. I lost about 40kg (about 90 lbs.), and it ended up sending me from being very obese to being underweight. But I've always eaten very little protein, which I continued to do, plus I was doing intermittent fasting, sometimes not eating anything for days at a time. Once I stopped the intermittent fasting and concentrated on getting adequate protein, my weight went back up to my ideal weight and stabilized there. I've heard from several people that you really need to watch your protein when doing a ketogenic diet being it's easy for excess to hinder weight loss and/or increase your BG.
    I have had a few issues while doing a ketogenic diet, but not 100% sure which if any can be attributed to ketosis vs. some other factor. First off, as winter was approaching I got extremely cold all the time, especially my fingers and toes, but even my whole body was cold. I thought it might have been the caffeine I was getting as part of my ketogenic diet involves drinking lots of coffee with HWC, coconut oil, and butter. I switched to decaf and the problem pretty much went away, but I don't know if it was the caffeine, the ketosis, the massive weight loss (lack of body fat), something else, or a combination of factors.
    I've also had excessive itching and a rash. That's normal for me during the winter months, but this year it started a bit early, went longer, and was much worse than normal. I think it may very well have been my usual sensitivity to the cold dry weather, aggravated by toxins released during my rapid weight loss, and perhaps ketones being emitted through the skin. It's just recently started to clear up and the rash is gone and most of the itching.
    I got keto-breath for a week or two when I first concentrated on going keto. It was very noticeable, but disappeared after that and no issues anymore with my breath.
    This diet is very sustainable for me. I tried my whole adult life to diet to lose weight and was never successful. This time I wanted to lose weight, but my primary focus was controlling my BG, meaning reducing carbs down to a low-carb level, which caused me to gravitate naturally to a LCHF diet. For the first time I have no desire to go back to my old way of eating. I love this diet and it's completely satisfying. So I killed two birds with one stone - got my BG under control, down to non-diabetic levels, and got my weight down to ideal. Plus with the huge benefits (IMHO) of having my body use ketones rather than glucose, I'm totally sold on this way of eating for the rest of my life and have absolutely no worries about not being able to stick to my diet. I really have no strong urges for carbs anymore, and only end up going off the plan rarely due to social pressures or inadvertently eating hidden/unknown carbs.
    My LDL has gone up, but I've heard from others that usually it's benign large fluffy LDL that typically goes up when on a ketogenic diet. And my body is still adjusting. Also I've heard that LDL by itself is not a good measure of risk. So I'm not worried about it, but will keep an eye on things. I also have taken my ketogenic diet to an extreme, hitting a KR of 3.0 or higher almost everyday, and sometimes up to 4.0 or more. Not sure if eating much more fat than necessary for ketosis affected my LDL any or not. Initially my LDL dropped significantly as well as my trigs, but both increased at my last doctor's visit. I may try a more normal KR in the future while monitoring my blood ketones to verify I stay in ketosis and see if there's any difference in my BG, cholesterol, or other tests.
    I did also suffer from other typical symptoms during my keto adaptation phase. Most went away within about two weeks. But it's just been here at the 6-month mark where my BG numbers suddenly stabilized with very little change, and quite low, and overall I just feel absolutely fantastic. I feel like I'm bursting with energy and joined a gym and suddenly love running and working out whereas I hated them all my life.
    Well, I don't have years of experience with ketosis to report anything to you about that. Other than I've heard lots of other people with years of experience and not heard of anyone having any real side effects other than the things I've mentioned. However some people do find ketosis isn't for them and give up very soon. For those that feel it is working for them and stick with it, seems there's no significant side effects. But I'll let the others who've been in ketosis for longer than me speak for themselves.
