Ketosis When To Eat Carbs

Did We Become So Intelligent Thanks To Agriculture, Eating More Carbs And Burning Glucose Instead Of Fats (ketosis)? Is Burning Of Glucose Worse Than Burning Of Fats And Ketones?

There is an arguable relationship between nutrition and the evolution of human intelligence, but it has nothing to do with agriculture. Modern humans appeared about 300,000 years ago. Homo Sapiens Sapiens… Us. At that point, our ancestors were pretty much as smart and imaginative and intelligent as are we. Agriculture would not be developed for a very long time…. About 10,000 BC or a bit before. So… The big jump in intelligence occurred between the time our our most-direct ancestor, Homo Heidelburgensis… Who had a brain about 75% of the size of Sapiens, and who had a complex tool-kit, fire, etc, etc. There is some thought that the improved diet, in the form of meat consumption, may have influenced brain growth. (Not plant foods) However, there’s also the thought that many other things may have influenced intelligence as well, and that perhaps all of them played their part.

    Dx code: Brittle DM (Diabetes Mellitus)

    Would you code brittle DM as (uncontrolled or not stated as uncontrolled) DM?

    Brittle diabetes is exceptionally difficult to control, marked by alternating episodes of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia. Frequent adjustments of dietary intake and insulin dosage are required.
    However, even brittle diabetes can be "controlled" with vigilance on the part of the patient and/or caregivers. Therefore, unless the provider specifically stated it was uncontrolled or mentions varying blood sugars, changed the insulin dose, etc., I would not code is as uncontrolled.
    Hope this helps,

It is much easier to answer in the affirmative if this level of carbs is more of an occasional event, which is then combined with sufficiently lengthy and intense exercise to burn the carbs and again deplete any stored glycogen. Also people vary, so whether you can consume that level ...
