In this Video We Will Discuss What are hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, and how can they affect my pregnancy? Hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia are both common in women with preexisting diabetes. Hypoglycemia occurs when blood glucose levels are too low. When blood glucose levels are low, your body cannot get the energy it needs.

Hyperglycemia is when your body doesn't have enough insulin or can't use insulin correctly. Typically hyperglycemia is treated by adjusting your insulin dosages.

Ketotic Hypoglycemia

Ketotic hypoglycemia is a medical term used in two ways: (1) broadly, to refer to any circumstance in which low blood glucose is accompanied by ketosis, and (2) in a much more restrictive way to refer to recurrent episodes of hypoglycemic symptoms with ketosis and, often, vomiting, in young children. The first usage refers to a pair of metabolic states (hypoglycemia plus ketosis) that can have many causes, while the second usage refers to a specific "disease" called ketotic hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia with ketosis: the broad sense[edit] There are hundreds of causes of hypoglycemia. Normally, the defensive, physiological response to a falling blood glucose is reduction of insulin secretion to undetectable levels, and release of glucagon, adrenaline, and other counterregulatory hormones. This shift of hormones initiates glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis in the liver, and lipolysis in adipose tissue. Lipids are metabolized to triglycerides, in turn to fatty acids, which are transformed in the mitochondria of liver and kidney cells to the ketone bodies— acetoacetate, beta-hydroxybutyrate, and acetone. Ketones can be used by the brain as an alternate fuel when glucose is scarce. A hig Continue reading >>

    These little sticks are the bane of my life! I have an obsessive nature at the best of times and I know in my heart of hearts that using them every time I go to the loo is ridiculous but I can't seem to stop! I think it's because I'm not getting what I consider an acceptable result from them lol and must be trying to bully them in submission
    Last time I did Atkins, many years ago, I simply did it as a weight loss programme rather than the way of life I intend to adopt this time. I did lose a little weight, nothing like my success last week, but when I used the ketostix I was always in the dark pink/purple region. This time, I am hovering between the first two pinks. I didn't read up properly on the Atkins the first time in the sense that I did eat as much as I wanted and I didn't bother with salad and veg whereas this time I am following it to the tee, at least I'm trying to! But my ketostix results are rubbish compared to when I didn't do it properly.
    Confused! Can anyone shed any light on this for me and then I can quit using a tub of ketostix a day

    If there is any degree of colour then you are in ketosis and don't need to worry. The result may look low because you are drinking lots of water or other fluid - the sticks measure the amount of ketones in the urine so if you are diluting it a lot, it will look lower. However be assured that any degree of colour indicates that you are in ketosis, and therefore burning fat for your energy instead of carbohydrate, and that is all we need!

  3. Carolyn

    Just another interesting thing though Jo, if I have an Atkins bar, which I don't every day, and then do a stick, I go back to negative on my stick! Weird?

Hypoglycemia, Keto, And Me. : Keto

I just wanted to make a post for anyone who has hypoglycemia and is considering trying keto. I wish I had been able to find something like this when I was considering it because I was worried about how it would affect me, thinking it could be terrible for my health, considering hypoglycemia is low blood sugar and you're pretty much required to have ~0 intake of sugar in order to be in ketosis. Alas, my boyfriend, who'd done and loved keto in the past talked me into at least trying it.First, I'll start out with my symptoms before keto. Of course, as it goes, I would get headaches almost every night, get shaky, dizzy, hot, lightheaded, and often get to the point of being nauseous if I went even up to 4 hours between eating. Sucks. Of course, this didn't ALWAYS happen, but it lead to me eating more often than "necessary" and overeating. I was up to 168 lbs at my biggest, and as a 5'3 girl, that's fairly unhealthy. When I started keto, as I mentioned, I was worried that my symptoms would get worse due to not having sugar, which was my savior previously and the only way that I could get myself feeling normal again. But I thought I'd give it a shot, since I was over being tub-tub.My fir Continue reading >>

    High Blood Pressure Caused by Ketogenic Diet and/or Coconut Oil?

    I always had high blood pressure since first checking it when I was in high school. Finally last month I was experiencing some dizziness, etc. at times, and on my doctor's visit my blood pressure was quite low. My doctor told me to buy a home blood pressure meter and self adjust my medication, which I did to the point of not taking any, and my blood pressure has remained on the low end of normal. That is until a couple of days ago. It's now suddenly gone up to the 140/90 range for no apparent reason and I started back on my blood pressure medication this morning. The only thing I can think of that's changed is I believe I've recently entered deep ketosis, and I've been taking a couple spoonfuls of coconut oil with my coffee each day, in addition to the normal HWC. My total fats have also gone up recently, but I haven't added any new ingredients to my menu other than the coconut oil. I've been doing fasts for the past month, and just did one two days ago, but don't think that should have affected anything, and my blood pressure actually started going up before I started the fast. In reading on the internet, seems fasting should if anything decrease blood pressure. I did see a couple comments on the internet about coconut oil maybe increasing blood pressure.
    Anyone else experience any increase in blood pressure due to coconut oil and/or ketosis?

  2. AnnC

    Well, I lost a lot of weight as a result of going LCHF/ketogenic, and I was able to halve and then stop my BP medication, which I'd been on for about 15 years. I don't test all that often any more, but when I do, I'm still around 105/70.

    Anyone else experience any increase in blood pressure due to coconut oil and/or ketosis? No. Never heard of coconut oil or ketosis increasing blood pressure. What concerns me about yours is the second number.
    What medication did you self-adjust? Didn't see any meds in your signature.

Reactive Hypoglycemia

Reactive hypoglycemia is a condition in which the body reacts to a perceived catastrophic drop in blood sugar. I say perceived because during an episode, the blood sugar readings may be in the normal range, but still "feel" like low blood sugar to the person having the reaction. In my experience, hypoglycemia happens to most people when first beginning a low carb, ketogenic diet. It may be especially strong in people who have already developed insulin resistance or pre-diabetes from a chronic excess of carbohydrate intake. There are different types of low blood sugar causes. Transient hypoglycemia normally happens when most people who have been eating a high carb diet drastically reduce carbohydrate intake for the first time. This type happens during the first several weeks of carb reduction because the body has not had time to create the enzymes or metabolic state to burn internal fat stores for fuel. Basically there is a gap in the amount of carbohydrate available for fuel, and the process of accessing fat stores for fuel. The lack of fuel sources results in transient low blood sugar. Reactive hypoglycemia is more of an acute reaction to a very high carb meal. For instance, when Continue reading >>

    I personally feel really good when my body is burning fats rather than carbs. I feel foggy with carb energy, really alive and well on fat energy.

    starving, but when one lowers carbs so that the body can't use it's normal form of energy (carbs) the body thinks starvation is setting in, and uses fat as fuel. Ketosis not a normal state. High protein is hard on the kidneys. Anyone who has kidney issues cannot go on a high protein, low carb diet. If that were the case that ketosis is fine, Dr. D would have all his O's on a Atkins diet. He doesn't. :) ;)

  3. ruthiegirl

    I was active on a low-carb website for a while. Some people needed to stay under 20g of carbs per day to lose weight. Others lost at 40g, 60g, or even 100g per day.
    Many people found that the kind of carbs they ate made a difference with weight loss- some did best with fruits, others with grains, and still others with starchy vegetables. Nearly all "low carbers" don't count the carbs of fiber. (Or, more accurately, they carefully counted fiber grams to subtract from total carbs, to get the "net carbs" they kept track of.)
