Ketones Low Blood Sugar

READ MORE HERE: https://goo.gl/RBTAiv Beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is the first ketone body produced in a fasting state. It is commonly produced by the body during periods without much food (glucose) in order to provide an alternative energy fuel source. Although it is not technically a ketone (owing to the bonding structure), for the purposes of this post it is. Diets that are low in carbohydrates and high in fatty acids can either prompt the body to produce ketone bodies, such as beta hydroxybutyrate, or allow people to consume them exogenously (outside the body) instead. These exogenous ketone supplements have grown in popularity along with the ketogenic diet and media attention from popular icons such as Tim Ferriss and Dave Asprey. Although supplementation of beta hydroxybutyrate has been described as jet fuel and undesirable, modern iterations of exogenous ketones are making it easier for anyone to utilize these ketone bodies for optimal brain performance. There are a host of benefits of beta hydroxybutyrate, but it is primarily known as a fuel source in the absence of glucose. Within 24 72 hours without food, the body no longer uses glucose as the main fuel support system, which is when ketones like beta hydroxybutyrate kick into production. Fasting as long as 382 days (with medical supervision) is possible purely because of ketone production. Evidence suggests that beta hydroxybutyrate can increase the level of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the hippocampus, which is the main memory center of the brain. This is some of the only published literature about the performance enhancing effects of beta hydroxybutyrate, though there are several self-experiments. Namely, Dr. Peter Attia (popularized by Tim Ferriss podcast and Attias blog) has concluded there are benefits of reduced oxygen consumption by the brain. These statements have been confirmed to some degree by Dr. Dom DAgostino when describing under-water oxygen utilization and ketones, but neither are well-researched. Most of the evidence regarding beta hydroxybutyrate utilizes this exogenous ketone as a way to recovery from memory damage or impairment or as a neuroprotective agent. In one 2004 study of memory-impaired adults, beta hydroxybutyrate successfully aided in improving memory recall. For Alzheimers patients, using beta hydroxybutyrate is particularly helpful as a neuroprotective agent. Many of the long-term and neuroprotective benefits of beta hydroxybutyrate are closely linked to reduced carbohydrate and glucose consumption as well. For those who are consuming both exogenous ketones and eating glucose, the benefits are known. The benefits of beta hydroxybutyrate are not only for people who are currently experiencing nutritional ketosis. Often it is possible for athletes to utilize ketone bodies as a fuel source to limit glycogen depletion.

For The Love Of Exogenous Ketones!

You read that correctly. I love ketones and I am actively pursuing ways to increase my bodies ability to produce them through the use of exogenous ketone supplements. Ketones are a dirty word in the world of diabetes because of the confusion surrounding their appearance as the harbinger of doom through DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis). Unfortunately many healthcare providers actively discourage their diabetic patients from attempting to achieve nutritional ketosis because they don’t fully understand the difference between nutritional ketosis and DKA. That difference is NOT the focus of this post, other than to establish the fact that there IS a difference. It’s important to note that the means of detecting DKA is typically the presence of ketones in the blood. Adding them through exogenous supplementation or nutritional ketosis is useful (I would even argue beneficial), but not without some risk. In case of insulin deficiency (bad pump site, occlusion, skipped dose etc) while in ketosis one would be without the means to clearly identify DKA. You’d only be able to guess based on blood glucose level to infer how insulin deficient you are. The risk can be mitigated through vigilance Continue reading >>

    Sick child with normal blood sugar but ketones in urine?

    My 5yr old has type 1, and has the flu. Her blood sugar is pretty normal to sometimes low as she does not want to eat but is drinking fluids. I tested her urine for ketones and they are 2+. I was told to increase her bg and give insulin every hour. does this make any sense?

  2. foxl

    2+ seems high. Ketones can simply indicate that you are burning fat as fuel -- either your own or dietary.
    My non-D daughter, now 10, used to get horrible ketone breath because when ill, she would NOT EAT!
    But GIVE INSULIN every HOUR??? No.

    I would not think insulin every hour could be regulated and you would have the stacking affect, make sure she has plenty of fluid.

What Are Ketones And Their Tests?

A ketone test can warn you of a serious diabetes complication called diabetic ketoacidosis, or DKA. An elevated level of this substance in your blood can mean you have very high blood sugar. Too many ketones can trigger DKA, which is a medical emergency. Regular tests you take at home can spot when your ketone levels run too high. Then you can take insulin to lower your blood sugar level or get other treatments to prevent complications. What Exactly Are Ketones? Everyone has them, whether you have diabetes or not. Ketones are chemicals made in your liver. You produce them when you don't have enough of the hormone insulin in your body to turn sugar (or “glucose”) into energy. You need another source, so your body uses fat instead. Your liver turns this fat into ketones, a type of acid, and sends them into your bloodstream. Your muscles and other tissues can then use them for fuel. For a person without diabetes, this process doesn’t become an issue. But when you have diabetes, things can run out of control and you build up too many ketones in your blood. If the level goes too high, it can become life-threatening. Who Needs a Ketone Test? You might need one if you have type 1 di Continue reading >>

    ketone confusion

    Ok, here is what is going on with me. ANY info anyone has will be much appreciated. I was (a few days ago) haveing light ketones show up in my urine. My bs was great, 100 fasting and not over 145 post meals. I figured not enough carbs, looking back on my recent meals. I upped my carbs to 110 yesterday, ketones in urine went away. I thought I had it figured out. This morning, bs was 115, but ketones in my urine was in the high color zone, plus I am having frequent urination. Are there any other things that would cause ketones besides bs issues? I unfortunately do not have insurance and money is tight, cannot see any docs. I have checked with the health dept here and they most they can offer a diabetic is sugar screenings twice a week. This is by a reg doc, not an endo, same with the only free clinic here. When I talked to them, they suggested I see an endo. So I am back to square one. Any advice at all???

    Sally, I dunno much at all about this stuff but just wanted to wish you well, hope it all works its way out for you and you feel better. *Hugs* Love yassssss Sheila

    Ketones are 'created' when your body burns fat for energy rather than carbohydrates. Briefly, when you don't have enough insulin in your body burns fat for energy and you spill ketones. If you eat very low carb you will spill ketones, some people on low carb diets aren't satisfied until they are. If you fast, you may spill ketones. If you are pregnant and don't eat enough, you can spill ketones. If you have LOW blood sugar you can spill ketones (opposite to when you have not enough insulin, you have too much and it's used all the glucose so burns fat). Illness and stress can cause you to spill ketones. Exercise can cause you to spill ketones.
    Now, spilling ketones in your urine (ketosis) is very different to ketoacidosis because ketosis doesn't cause your blood pH to drop which is the issue with DKA. Ketosis is not (well not been shown to be) dangerous, ketoacidosis is. I would buy some fresh ketostix and monitor things and pay very carful attention to the DKA symptoms like extreme tiredness, extreme thirst, constant urination, hyperventilation, nausea and pain in the upper body. If you have multiple ones of those you really need to go to a doctor. If you have any of the following, you really need to go to the ER. Vomiting, abdominal pain, symptoms of the flu, weakness and fast/normal but deep breathing like you are gasping for air.

Ketones And Low Blood Sugar....

Ketones are totally normal in the human body. It's just when you get too many of them it gets dangerous. I have the same meter and usually test around .1 or .2 and it's fine. Read the instructions for your strips. I think it says you're in ketosis at .8 and above. Trust me, real ketosis will make you feel really sick and usually it comes with a blood sugar of 300 and above. You go into ketosis when you have little or no insulin. Happens when you forget your Lantus/Levemir or when your pump malfunctions. In case you are type 2, ketosis normally shouldn't be of concern anyway. Thank you for finding the brochure. I am printing it as we speak and I will keep it with my meter and my other important papers. For some strange reason I seem to have lost the instructions with my strips. In the beginning when I was first diagnosed I had a blood sugar of 450 (25) and I really did not feel well at all. Now quite a number of years later I was curious to see if a person registers ketones when your blood sugar is low. Then when I realized that maybe it also had something to do with low carbing - I was both concerned and curious. There are 2 ketone-related conditions, one (mostly) good and one bad Continue reading >>
