Metallic Taste In Mouth

A metallic taste can result from dry mouth, medications, regular or spoiled foods, a mild health condition, such as common cold, or a serious condition, such as poisoning or cancer. Some people describe a metallic taste as a bitter or salty or the taste of dirty copper pennies. Other people describe a sour, acidic taste as metallic. Dysgeusia is a synonym for any weird taste, for example, unusually salty or sweet or fishy taste. Symptoms Checker After reading this article, you might be able to narrow down possible causes of metallic taste from a combination of symptoms in various conditions. Metallic Taste Causes 1. Foods 2.

While traditional treatment has involved counseling individuals to restrict calories and make lifestyle changes, such as eating a nutrient-dense diet, participating in regular physical activity, and other behavior modifications, many people classified as severely obese (BMI of 40 or greater) are still unable to lose and maintain significant weight loss. In the United States, more than one-third of adults aged 20 and older are classified as being obese (BMI of 30 or greater).1 It’s been estimated that the rate of severe obesity is rapidly increasing. Between 2000 and 2005, obesity rates rose 24%; the obesity rates among those with a BMI of 40 or greater and a BMI of 50 or greater have risen by 50% and 75%, respectively.2 These climbing rates show traditional weight-loss modalities have failed to provide long-term solutions. In fact, studies have found that bariatric surgery is the only modality that leads to permanent, significant weight loss and the reduction of comorbidities for the vast majority of individuals who have severe obesity.3-8 These results appear to be the impetus for the growing popularity of bariatric surgery. In 2009 alone, it was estimated that 220,000 people underwent bariatric surgery,9 and as Medicare and private insurance companies increasingly provide reimbursement for these procedures, these numbers may grow. Because more and more people are choosing weight-loss surgery, it will be of greater importance for dietitians to educate themselv Continue reading >>

Symptoms Of Ketosis:

Symptoms Of Ketosis:

If you are considering the ketogenic diet or have already started down this carb-free road, you may wonder what you can expect. Here’s the thing. Ketosis looks different for everyone, but I will share many of the most common symptoms with you today. If something other than what’s listed here is happening to you, just do a quick Google search for that symptom and keto. You should be able to find what you’re looking for! The Early Signs: The early signs of ketosis vary from person to person. The biggest impact on how quickly you notice the symptoms of ketosis will have a lot to do with how you ate before you started the diet. If your diet was very high carb, you might get hit pretty quickly and furiously with what we like to call the “Keto Flu.” This can last anywhere from 3 days to a week or more. Once your body has adapted to burning ketones for energy instead of glucose, you’ll be golden so don’t give up! Here’s what you can expect within the first 2-3 days of starting the Ketogenic Diet: Fatigue & Weakness (lack of concentration) Headaches Metallic taste or sweet taste in your mouth (I experienced this, and it tasted like blood in my mouth) Lightheaded / Dizzy upon standing Heightened Thirst Hunger / Sweet or Carb Cravings Dry Mouth possibly paired with “Keto Breath.” Stomach Discomfort / Mild Nausea / Cramping Trouble Sleeping or Staying Asleep (early waking) Water weight loss (perhaps an excessive loss of weight within the first two weeks) Frequent Urination Allergies or cold like symptoms may flair up For the ladies: Period issues: You may experience a longer, shorter, earlier, later period because of Keto. Seriously it causes all of that. Each woman is different, and I have experienced every one of those issues with my period since starting ket Continue reading >>

Tips To Soothe Your Burning Tongue

Tips To Soothe Your Burning Tongue

The mysterious condition of burning tongue, and how you can ease the pain For close to four months, 42-year-old Andheri resident Roma Patel felt like a fire-eater. The homemaker was battling a mouth-on-fire feeling, marked by a sudden burning sensation on the tip of her tongue and the roof of the mouth that she'd get in the evenings, and experience a dull metallic taste through the day. Patel, a tea lover, put it down to the piping hot black tea she'd sip each evening. But a medical examination pointed to her severe vitamin B12 deficiency coupled with a nerve injury due to a nasty ear infection that she had suffered a few months ago. Bandra-based pain specialist Dr Raashi Khatri-Panjabi diagnosed it as the Burning Mouth Syndrome (BMS), medically also termed glossodynia. Medical journals describe it as a scalding painful sensation in the tongue, lips, palate, or throughout the mouth where no underlying dental or medical cause can be identified. Although it can be a primary illness by itself, sometimes, says the doctor who specialises in oro-facial pain, it can point to an underlying condition. Dr Ashok Dhoble, orthodontist, who practises at Opera House, confirmed that he sees 25 patients with BMS every month. The symptoms Moderate to severe burning in the mouth is the main symptom of BMS and can persist for months or years. "For most patients, the sensation begins late morning, peaks towards evening, and often subsides by night," says Khatri-Panjabi. "While some battle constant pain, for others, it's intermittent. It's also linked to anxiety and depression, which could be the result of their chronic condition," she adds. Other signs include tingling or numbness on the tip of the tongue or in the mouth, bitter or metallic changes in taste, and dry mouth (medically termed Continue reading >>

How Low-carb Diets Wrecked Our Health: As Women Reveal How They Suffered Fertility Problems, Thin Hair And Fragile Bones, Do You Still Fancy A Trendy High-protein Diet?

Brooke Power, 27, suffered migraines and dizziness Nutritionists say a balanced diet is better Gillian O'Toole, 32, nearly passed out on the Paleo Diet Emma-Victoria Houlton loves her food; whether it's a Sunday roast with all the trimmings or an Italian meal, she's always happy to tuck in. But just five years ago, Emma, 29, would have baulked at eating pasta, bread, pizza dough, potatoes and Yorkshire puddings. Why? Because, like thousands of others, she believed high-protein, low-carb regimes like the Atkins or Paleo diets were the most effective way to be slim. Diet damage: Emma-Victoria Houlton, left, broke a bone in her foot due to calcium deficiency while Brooke Power, right, suffered migraines and dizziness during ten months on a low carb diet But, after cutting down on carbs so much that she wouldn't even eat dairy products as they contain lactose - a sugar - Emma-Victoria believes she has permanently damaged her health. 'I was only a size eight but found it hard to stay slim,' she says. 'Then, when I was 22, I saw a documentary about the Atkins diet, thought it was great and cut most carbs out of my diet. 'Breakfast was an omelette, lunch was chicken with lettuce and dinner was something meaty with vegetables like kale, cabbage, sprouts or runner beans, which don’t contain starch. 'I got all the classic symptoms associated with a low-carb diet: dry mouth, tiredness, crankiness and bad breath. But I saw great results - my 8st 7lb weight was much easier to maintain.' Unbelievably, Emma-Victoria, a creative director in Manchester, stuck to the regime for three punishing years. 'At restaurants, every meal had to be steak and salad,' she says. 'I'd go to a friend's house for dinner and if they'd made pasta, I'd eat a tiny amount, so as not to be rude, and end up f Continue reading >>

Metal Taste In Mouth: Every Cause, Every Solution

Metal Taste In Mouth: Every Cause, Every Solution

Is a metal taste in your mouth driving you mad? A metal taste in the mouth is no laughing matter, as it can sometimes seem as though you’ve been sucking on a block of iron. Though a metallic taste in the mouth can sometimes easily be explained by a recent nosebleed, there are other instances of metal taste in the mouth that have no apparent cause, and thus, no apparent solution. I asked Dr. Steven Y. Park, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), New York Medical College, and author of the book, “Sleep, Interrupted: A physician reveals the #1 reason why so many of us are sick and tired,” to name all the possible causes of a metallic taste in the mouth. Once you know what’s causing this very unpleasant situation with your mouth, you’ll know what the solutions are. Medications can cause a metallic taste in the mouth, but what prescription drugs are most likely to cause this? Dr. Park: One of the most common medications is azithromycin or clarithromycin, or any of the macrolide antibiotics. Chemotherapy and anesthesia medications can do this as well. Can supplements be a culprit? Certain vitamins, especially those containing calcium or iron, can cause a metallic taste. What is the most serious disease that a metal flavor in the mouth can be a symptom? Any systemic medical condition that upsets your body’s state of balance can cause you to have a metallic taste, just like weakness, headache, or pain. Think of the bad taste as a form of mild pain or a distorted sensation of the taste-buds. If your nerve endings are hypersensitive (due to stress or illness), then they’ll over-react or react inappropriately. The same goes with the tongue, since it has three types of nerve endings: taste, sensation, motor. There are theories that Continue reading >>

Dear Mark: Ketosis And Methylglyoxal, Microwaving Vegetables, The Role Of Salt In Cooking, And More Veggie Ideas

Dear Mark: Ketosis And Methylglyoxal, Microwaving Vegetables, The Role Of Salt In Cooking, And More Veggie Ideas

43 Comments For today’s edition of Dear Mark, I’m answering three questions. First, what’s the deal with the relationship between ketosis and methylglyoxal? Second, why did I recommend using the microwave to cook vegetables in the post from last week? Third, why do chefs use so much salt in their cooking? After all the questions, I throw in a couple more vegetable cooking tips I missed last week. Let’s go: Hey Mark, Did you see this study? Ketosis unlocks a “new” antioxidant system. Pretty cool stuff, just thought I’d pass it along. Noel Thanks, Noel. That was totally new to me. I knew that ketogenic diets had antioxidant effects, but I didn’t know the ketone bodies themselves were directly involved in detoxification of otherwise toxic compounds. Very cool. I agree. What’s going on? Methylglyoxal is one of the most reactive agents our bodies encounter. Many of the basic diseases of civilization, like diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease, feature elevated methylglyoxal levels. Causation is likely. Heck, it even possesses the ability to corrupt HDL. What makes this newest study so interesting is that ketogenic diets have gotten a bad rap for their supposed effects on methylglyoxal levels in the past. Detractors commonly cite a 2005 study of the Atkin’s diet, which found that dieters who reached ketosis doubled their methylglyxoal levels. Sounds bad, but is it? According to this latest study, maybe not. One of the main ketones, acetoacetate, gloms on to methylglyoxal and converts it to a harmless metabolite. Elevated methylglyoxal might mean very different things depending on what kind of a diet produces it. Other studies have found methylglyoxal to be a potent anti-cancer agent whose users “benefited greatly,” some even becoming “free of the Continue reading >>

Mouth On Fire? The Best (and Worst) Ways To Soothe The Burn Fast

Mouth On Fire? The Best (and Worst) Ways To Soothe The Burn Fast

The feeling is all too familiar: Bite into a seemingly innocent piece of chicken curry, and shortly after the first taste of meaty goodness, your tongue starts to tingle, cheeks redden, and beads of sweat form on your forehead. Then steam spews from your ears, blasting the five-alarm fire in your head. Okay, so maybe that last part only happens in cartoons, but the burning pain is totally legit. What Brings on the Burn? Most spicy food gets its kick from capsaicinoids, a family of molecules found in nearly all chili peppers, says Chris Gulgas, a chemistry professor who researches spicy foods at the University of Cincinnati. Other spicy foods (wasabi, ginger, and even black pepper) are molecularly different from capsaicin—the most common capsaicinoid—and result in a burning sensation that rarely lingers more than a few seconds. The chili burn stems from a chemical reaction that occurs when capsaicin bonds with the pain receptors on the inside of the mouth, which are the same neurons that detect heat. “These nerve cells naturally fire a signal when the local temperature gets above 108 degrees F, just warmer than hot-tub temperature,” Gulgas says. “The fact that capsaicin tricks the neurons into the same reaction is an accident or coincidence.” Here’s the key: Capsaicin dissolves in fat, oil, and alcohol but not in water. Chugging water after biting down on a chili pepper will only spread the capsaicin around the inside of your mouth, where it will come in contact with more pain receptors and amp up the burning sensation. Steer clear of beer and soda too—both beverages are mostly water. The nerves that react to capsaicin are already primed to flare up at hot temperatures. That’s why taking a sip of coffee after eating a breakfast of eggs with Sriracha wil Continue reading >>

Shatter Sx-7 By Muscletech Honest Review

Shatter Sx-7 By Muscletech Honest Review

This morning I trialled SHATTER SX-7 by Muscletech, yet another sample pack provided by my friends at AAA Supplements. As always I did some research on this product before taking it, reading other reviews and experiences to get an idea of a good starting dosage. The sample pack comes with 6g, or 2x 1 serving (scoop), which after some reading I decided I would take the full sample pack. I am fairly tolerant to pre-workout supplements now as I’ve taken many and generally take them every day, but I was still a little nervous about taking a 2 scoop serving as Upload and Ritual have me bouncing off the walls from 1 scoop. Let’s first take a look at the ingredients profile. Ingredients – 8/10 First of all, I’d just like to say THANK YOU MUSCLETECH for not hiding your ingredients behind some stupid patented complex like many other companies do. As much as I love 2Shredded by Beast, do you think I can get them to tell me how much caffeine they have in that bad boy? My usual routine is a 1-scoop pre-workout before my morning cardio, followed by a mix of 2Shredded that I drink slowly over a couple of hours. I have started to utilize the free gym facilities in the building where I work to get a second workout in during my lunch break, but I’m a little concerned of caffeine overdose if I take a second serving of pre-workout on the same day. Just tell me how much caffeine you use so I don’t die! Anyway, back to SHATTER. To say the least, the ingredients profile is rather unique. I’ve not heard of many of these ingredients before today, but have done some research and will try my best to explain their intended purposes below. But let’s start with some of the better-known and staple ingredients. Beta-alanine You simply can’t have a pre-workout without a generous help Continue reading >>

Is Tingling, Depression And Rage Caused By Low-carb?

Is Tingling, Depression And Rage Caused By Low-carb?

One of my blog friends named Debi Gerbino brought up an interesting subject regarding the low-carb lifestyle the other day in an e-mail that I haven't personally experienced nor have I heard anything about it previously. She said when she has tried the Atkins diet, her tongue started having a tingling sensation. Has anyone else either experienced or heard about this before? It was news to me. She went to see her doctor about it who referred her to a neurologist to have an MRI taken. But the doctors couldn't find anything that would cause this odd physical reaction to occur. "When I got off Atkins 6 months ago, the tingling sensation went away (but I never thought anything of it) - until now. As you know, I started Atkins again one week ago today. About two days ago, the tingling sensation returned ... it's awful. I make a connection (I think) and wondered if it could have anything to do with my 'diet' and the huge metabolic change that occurs." I'll throw the door wide open on this one. Does anyone have any insight they would like to share with Debi about her condition? Is this something you too have experienced and were able to overcome with your low-carb lifestyle? Click on the comments section below and please share your thoughts with us. Debi also mentioned that she suffers with depression and referenced this article from April 2004 printed in Psychology Today. Debi said she had a co-worker who told her that people who are depressed should avoid livin' la vida low-carb because it allegedly lowers serotonin levels in the brain which can lead to depression. I admit that I do not suffer from depression and never have. However, my wife Christine does and I have seen the way she is when she doesn't take her Paxil and Wellbutrin. In other words, I am not diminishing those Continue reading >>

An Update On 'tingling' Tongue Problem While On A Low-carb Diet

An Update On 'tingling' Tongue Problem While On A Low-carb Diet

I receive quite a bit of e-mail from people on a daily basis who have all sorts of questions about livin’ la vida low-carb. And it quite literally runs the gamut from how do you start on a low-carb diet to why have I “only” lost 10 pounds after two weeks to some really serious health concerns that people are worried their low-carb diet is either causing or exacerbating. I’ve seen it all and I happily answer every single one of these e-mails by responding myself or copying in any number of the low-carb expert friends I have had the privilege of interviewing on my podcast show. It’s a privilege to be able to serve my readers who have honest questions that they feel need to be addressed. But I do happen to think it’s funny how whenever someone on a low-carb diet gets something odd going on with their body, the first thing many of them tend to blame is the diet itself. I addressed this subject in a blog post a few years back because I was seeing it time and time again from well-meaning people who wanted to know why low-carb was doing this or that to them. I never understood that because you don’t hear people walking around with various aches and pains stating, “Darn that low-fat, high-carb diet!” It just doesn’t happen unless you are on low-carb. Human nature can be a strange lot. I wanted to provide an update on an e-mail that I blogged about in 2005 from a reader at the time who was experiencing a “tingling” sensation in her tongue claiming that it only happened when she was on the low-carb lifestyle. Honestly, I was perplexed at this one and could explain what was physically happening to her. What I did know at the time was that it didn’t seem plausible that eating a carbohydrate-restricted diet could lead to this kind of funky symptom, but I wa Continue reading >>

Ketosis Symptoms

Ketosis Symptoms

Source Ketosis is the name for a state achieved on a low-carbohydrate diet. According to WebMD, when you are in ketosis, it means your body is burning fat for energy. When that happens, your body releases ketones into your bloodstream, and you are in ketosis. This state may cause a host of temporary symptoms. Understanding the Symptoms Many dieters develop symptoms that let them know ketones are present. For many people beginning a low-carb diet, ketosis kicks in after a few days of strict adherence to the diet. In fact, many low-carbohydrate plans, such as Atkins and paleo, have an initial phase in which dieters take in extremely low amounts of carbohydrates (usually less than 25 grams per day) to kick start ketosis. You can test for ketones in the urine using ketosis strips, or rely on symptoms to tell you ketosis has been achieved. Early Stages Symptoms of ketosis vary, depending how long you've been in the state. In the early stages, the symptoms may be a bit unpleasant. However, as your body adapts to ketones in the bloodstream, symptoms may decrease. Early symptoms usually last for several days or up to a week in some people. This period of symptoms is sometimes called the keto flu. It may continue until your body is used to burning fat instead of glucose. Afterwards, the levels of ketones should lessen, but that doesn't mean you aren't losing weight. It means your body has found a balance and is no longer producing excess ketones. According to Diet Doctor, early stage symptoms include: Flu-like symptoms, such as fatigue and headache Nausea Brain fog Constipation Leg cramps Feeling unusually thirsty Irritability Heart palpitations Dry mouth Ketosis breath, which smells fruity and unpleasant Decreased energy and weakness Dizziness Sleep problems Cold hands and feet Continue reading >>

What Are Ketosis Side Effects?

What Are Ketosis Side Effects?

Ketosis is a state in which the body has to use protein and reserves of fat because it doesn't have enough carbohydrates, often as a result of a low-carbohydrate diet. Though ketosis on its own is not necessarily dangerous, prolonged ketosis can lead to a state called ketoacidosis in which blood becomes too acidic. Mild ketosis side effects include bad breath and gas; more significant ones include weakness, nausea, and dizziness. If ketosis occurs for a long time and leads to ketoacidosis, side effects may become more severe. In the early stages, the ketosis side effects may be quite minor. For example, acetone is created inside the mouth during ketosis. As a result, many people experience bad breath. Brushing the teeth, mouth and tongue frequently may reduce the effect of the acetone. In addition, drinking more water and eating vegetables may also reduce the effect of the ketosis. Some people complain of other side effects — sudden dizziness, weakness, fatigue, and lethargy are quite common. In addition, most people complain of headaches, especially since their body is consuming significantly fewer calories when they are dieting. Although these side effects are not life threatening, they may cause people to make simple mistakes they would not normally make. Most people follow a low-carbohydrate diet for short periods of time. If it is followed for longer durations, more severe side effects may occur as the body goes into ketoacidosis, such as kidney damage and liver damage. For example, excess protein may cause nitrogen to be released into the person’s bloodstream. When this happens, the kidneys must work extra hard to remove it through the urinary system and when fat is consumed, the fatty-acid by-product must be removed by the over-worked kidneys. Prolonged, extr Continue reading >>
