Ketosis: Fear, Uncertainty And Doubt

Perhaps nothing is more damaging to the new low-carber than the intentional spread of fear, uncertainty and doubt regarding the state of ketosis compared to the dangerous state of ketoacidosis. The former is a natural and healthy state of existence, the latter is a condition that threatens the life of type 1 diabetics and type 2 diabetics whose disease has progressed to the point where their pancreatic beta cells can no longer produce insulin (ketoacidosis is also a risk for alcoholics). So if you’re not an alcoholic, a type 1 diabetic or a late-stage type 2 diabetic, fear of ketosis is misdirected. You should regard with suspicion anyone who confuses the two and warns you against a low-carb diet because they cannot tell the difference. The confusion between ketosis and ketoacidosis is a sign of a grave misunderstanding of basic biology (if not a complete lack of critical faculty). So too is the assumption that ketosis is the “early stage” of ketoacidosis or that “ketosis leads to ketoacidosis” in a person whose pancreas is still able to produce insulin. If you don’t trust me (and why should you), you should consider listening to some people who know a lot more about th Continue reading >>

    I know that an essential part of the Whole 30 is teaching your body to rely on fats for energy versus glucose. From my understanding, this is achieved through ketosis. Now, as a Type 1 diabetic, I understand that ketoacidosis, while different from ketosis, is very dangerous. I treat my diabetes with insulin, and my blood sugar has been pretty stable since starting the Whole 30 (much better than usual in fact, and having to take less!). I've read that if your body doesn't produce insulin, it won't know what healthy levels of ketone production is, and could produce too much leading to ketoacidosis. Is this something I should be concerned about during my Whole 30, or does my insulin that I take keep it all in check? Advice from any diabetics most welcome!

  2. CAK911

    My understanding is that Whole30 doesn't actually push you into ketosis, it's fat adaption not fat reliance -- so you CAN use stores of fat, but you aren't ONLY using stores of fat. Whole30 can actually include a fair amount of carbohydrate from vegetable sources. One of the mods probably has a more developed answer to this.

  3. Tom Denham

    CAK911 is right. You do not need to restrict carbs and put yourself into ketosis to achieve great results during a Whole30. We want you to eat as many carbs from vegetables as you need. Most people feel and perform better eating a sweet potato or another similar serving of carbs every day. I know I do. I even sleep better when I have some carbs during the day.
    I hope some diabetics will add there personal experience here as I am not expert with type 1 diabetes.

Ketosis Vs Ketoacidosis

This is a summary/extract from The Ketogenic Diet by Lyle McDonald. Ketosis occurs in a number of physiological states including fasting (called starvation ketosis), the consumption of a high fat diet (called dietary ketosis), and immediately after exercise (called post-exercise ketosis). Two pathological and potentially fatal metabolic states during which ketosis occurs are diabetic ketoacidosis and alcoholic ketoacidosis. The major difference between starvation, dietary and diabetic/alcoholic ketoacidosis is in the level of ketone concentrations seen in the blood. Starvation and dietary ketosis will normally not progress to dangerous levels, due to various feedback loops which are present in the body. Diabetic and alcoholic ketoacidosis are both potentially fatal conditions. Under normal conditions, ketone bodies are present in the bloodstream in minute amounts, approximately 0.1 mmol/dl. When ketone body formation increases in the liver, ketones begin to accumulate in the bloodstream. Ketosis is defined clinically as a ketone concentration above 0.2 mmol/dl. Mild ketosis, around 2 mmol, also occurs following aerobic exercise. Ketoacidosis is defined as any ketone concentration a Continue reading >>

    So, as I have been reading more and more about Ketogenic diets, the topic of Ketoacidosis repeatedly comes up. From what I understand, a prolonged Ketogenic diet would eventually lead to Ketoacidosis. Obviously, this is not the case as people have been doing Keto for extended periods of time and do not exhibit any of the harmful effects associated with Ketoacidosis. Does anyone have any good sources explaining this?

  2. lowcarbbq

    Here is an article documenting this in a woman on Keto diet for 4+ years. It was published by the New England Journal of Medicine.
    http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc052709
    It mentions that the woman may have had a pre-disposition to ketoacidosis. However, the pathways it mentions for ketoacidosis to occur suggest that it would be more likely in a starvation diet. It did not indicate that the woman was engaged in a low calorie keto diet.
    Another article documenting a similar case, but with the subject on the diet for approximately 3 weeks.

Which is the best weight loss diet? Ketogenic diet vs low carb diet vs atkins vs paleo? Which one of these meal plans is best to burn fat? FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O70G4m Isn't the ketogenic diet and low carb diet essentially the same thing? How about Atkins and paleo aren't all of these diets just a fancy way of saying keep your carbs low. Well it's definitely safe to say that you are limiting your carb intake in all of these diet plans but each plan calls for a slightly different approach to burning fat. Most ketogenic diets require you to keep your carbs under 30 grams a day and the most carbs that I've ever seen on a keto plan was 50 grams a day. Usually this will account for 5% of your total daily intake. Then you would have somewhere between 75 to 80 percent of your calories from fat. And finally 15 to 20 percent of your calories from protein. With ketogenic it's clear that the carbs are very limited at only 5 percent per day and the reason why carbs are so limited is because the ketogenic diet is trying to put you into ketosis. To sum it up simply ketosis is a state in which you're going to burn more fat and produce Ketone bodies in your liver for use as energy when carbohydrates are really low. Low-carb diets on the other hand don't require an exact number of carbohydrates the way that keto does. Obviously since it's low carb you wouldnt expect to have more than 20 to 30 percent of your calories coming from carbs but even at 20 percent it's a huge difference from the five percent that you get with keto. So with low carb we can consider the exact number of carbs undefined whereas with Keto that number is very defined with exact numerical values. What about atkins? When taking a closer look at Atkins you see that Atkins is different from keto and low-carb as well. With Atkins the General accepted split is 30% protein 10% carbs and 60% fat. Again this is higher in carbs than the 5 percent we see with keto which Keto dieters would not support because they would say that having a higher level of carbs would take you out of ketosis. But Atkins at certain points dies definitely put you into ketosis. The plan takes you through four phases and a lot of these phases match up with the keto structure. In Phase 1 of Atkins you have to limit your totally daily carb intake to only 20 grams per day. This is as low if not even lower than keto. Then you progress to phase 2 where you still keep carbs really low but you add in certain vegetables berries nuts and seeds back into the diet. Then in Phase 3 which you only start once you're about 10 pounds from your weight loss goal, but once your there you start to add 10 grams of carbs to your diet each week. And finally in phase four you enter maintenance which allows you to eat anywhere from 45 to 100 grams of carbs per day. Phase one and two sound just like the ketogenic diet and I'm sure when your in those two phases you will be in a state of ketosis but when you enter into phase 3 and phase 4 you're going to be moving more towards a general low carb diet which as ive already mentioned is very different from keto. Now how about paleo, where does paleo fit in all of this. Well paleo once again elicits fat loss by keeping the list of approved carbs short but the paleo plan is different because it only allows Foods that were believed to be eaten by our caveman ancestors. The best paleo macronutrient split as defined by the perfect health diet and paleo leap.com is around 20 percent carbohydrates 65 percent fat and 15 percent protein. Again this is slightly different from what we've seen with low carb and Atkins but it's very different from keto. Even though paleo and Keto are both low in carbohydrates Keto is significantly lower than paleo again keto totals only at 5% of total daily intake. The Paleo diet is also very specific with what foods you can and cannot eat. Even though you can do this diet with regular produce it's highly recommended that all your meat products are grass-fed wild caught and pasture-raised. You're allowed to eat any fresh vegetables except for potatoes and any nuts except for peanuts. Also eggs, healthy oils like olive oil, and fresh fruit especially berries are allowed on the plan. Grains, bread, cereals, any processed food, legumes, beans, and Dairy are completely off the plan. Dairy is a big part of the ketogenic diet for many people. A lot of people get the massive amount of fat required on keto with options like cheese. Cheese would be forbidden on the Paleo diet but on paleo you would actually be able to eat things like pumpkin squash and yams. With keto it would be almost impossible to eat these things because you would easily exceed you're 5% carb allowance. Most of these diets matchup in their efforts to limit grains

Ketoacidosis During A Low-carbohydrate Diet

To the Editor: It is believed that low-carbohydrate diets work best in reducing weight when producing ketosis.1 We report on a 51-year-old white woman who does not have diabetes but had ketoacidosis while consuming a “no-carbohydrate” diet. There was no family history of diabetes, and she was not currently taking any medications. While adhering to a regimen of carbohydrate restriction, she reached a stable weight of 59.1 kg, a decrease from 72.7 kg. After several months of stable weight, she was admitted to the hospital four times with vomiting but without abdominal pain. On each occasion, she reported no alcohol use. Her body-mass index (the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in meters) was 26.7 before the weight loss and 21.7 afterward. Laboratory evaluation showed anion-gap acidosis, ketonuria, and elevated plasma glucose concentrations on three of the four occasions (Table 1). She had normal concentrations of plasma lactate and glycosylated hemoglobin. Screening for drugs, including ethyl alcohol and ethylene glycol, was negative. Abdominal ultrasonography showed hepatic steatosis. On each occasion, the patient recovered after administration of intraven Continue reading >>
