Poor Ketone Levels In Low-carb Diet

Poor Ketone Levels In Low-carb Diet

Hi, I have been looking to buy Ketone test strips in South-Africa, but couldn't find it since they aren't stocked anywhere. I'm on a Ketogenic diet and found a new company that supplies them online and delivers to your doorstep in South-Africa. It is called LIPOstix and can be baught online via www.dietnostix.co.za/lipostix ; each pack includes 30 test strips. Hopefully this helps Regards Reply to Anonymous Ignorance is bliss.. Health24 get someone who knows what they are talking about Reply to Suprised I have lost 20 kgs on Atkins almost three sizes down. It's the most successful diet for me. I know the doc doesn't approve of it as such, but I believe that I would rather stick to a diet I can handle and that works for me, and become thinner, than stay fat and have to worry about the long term effects of obesity. You get the ketone sticks at most chemists. Reply to Another Dieter Hi Loz Are you on the Atkins diet? Where did you buy the test strips to test the ketone levels? How much weight have you lost so far? Reply to Paula The amount of ketones in your urine doesn't correlate to the amount weightloss. If you drink alot of fluids in a day this will change the ketone level reflected in your urine - only because the concentration level is less. If you're in ketosis then you'll be losing weight - don't worry about the ketosis levels as such. In Atkins book he makes it clear that provided the stick is turning slightly purple, then things are on track. Reply to Another Dieter Continue reading >>

Ketonuria In Pregnancy—with Special Reference To Calorie-restricted Food Intake In Obese Diabetics

Ketonuria In Pregnancy—with Special Reference To Calorie-restricted Food Intake In Obese Diabetics

Early morning ketonuria, as judged by Ketostix testing, occurred in 19% of urine samples from insulin-independent diabetic pregnant women eating 1000 calorie diets, in 14% from diabetics on higher calorie diets, and in 7% of urines from nondiabetic pregnant women. Ketostix test was never found to be positive in blood, even when it was 2+ in urine samples, and acetoacetate levels were always below 1 mmol/L. Enzymatic estimations of acetoacetate (AA) and beta-hydroxybutyrate (BB) in urine and plasma samples revealed (1) no significant differences in range or mean between the groups receiving different restricted diets or full diets, the highest value observed for plasma AA being 0.34 mmol/L; (2) that Ketostix became positive at a concentration of AA above 1 mmol/L and that such a value in urine corresponded to plasma levels of between 0.06 and 0.1 mmol/L, i.e., double the normal; and (3) a 50–100-fold increase in urine AA when blood levels exceeded 0.08 mmol/L. Neonates born to diabetic mothers with ketonuria had no fetal distress or asphyxia neonatorum. The lowest Apgar score at 5 min was 8; 80% of neonates had a score of 10. Hence, positive Ketostix tests in urine samples do not indicate toxic levels in the blood, and a 1000 calorie diet for obese pregnant diabetics appears to be safe as regards neonatal outcome.

At Last: Nutritional Ketosis

At Last: Nutritional Ketosis

It took one whole week after my trip to CT to find my way back into nutritional ketosis (1,5-3mmol/L)! But now I am here… This means: Extra energy Less needed sleep Burning fat at maximum Not so hungry Optimal fuel for the brain Bad breath… So how can you turbo your way into nutritional ketosis? Eat lots, LOTS of fat (butter, ghee, coconut oil) Avoid: berries, nuts, fruit, alkohol, too much dairy Bullet coffee helps Eat only 2-3 times a day In South Africa this is where you can get hold of a blood keton measurer: M-KEM, Durban Road. (At the Durban Road off-ramp from N1 heading out in direction of Paarl). Price: R149.95 B-Ketone strips (Box of 10). Price: R129.90 That’s R12.99 per strip! In Sweden the strips cost R30 each… But it is a pricey hobby, but for me, so worth it. It is very motivating to keep track of what you eat and how it affects your body and definately helps weight loss! Continue reading >>

Specialised Diagnostic Products South Africa

Specialised Diagnostic Products South Africa

The Evolution of Specialised Diagnostic Products used in South Africa It was only during the ‘50s that diagnostic efforts began to rely less exclusively upon physical examination. Before that, physicians demonstrated relatively little dependence on the results of laboratory tests and the plethora of specialised products that have since become so widely used in South Africa today simply did not exist. Since those early days, an entire industry devoted to the development of test procedures, reagents and technologies for use in routine medicine and research has emerged and its evolution has taken two main directions – tests for use in the pathology or medical research laboratories and those for use at the point of care. Among the earliest of these test kits to emerge were those developed by the joint efforts of the Ames and Miles companies, and included Clinitest tablets for the detection and rough quantitation of glucose in urine. The test employed Benedict’s copper sulphate reagent in an exothermic reaction that made boiling unnecessary and could be used either in the laboratory or a consulting room. Later developments saw products such as Albustix and Ketostix – absorbent strips impregnated with suitable reagents for the detection of albumin and ketones in urine respectively. These, in turn, led to specialised diagnostic products capable of detecting multiple substances in a single sample while yet another development saw approximate blood glucose measurements conducted in a similar fashion. Although, in South Africa and many other countries, tests such as these are still in use today, new technologies have continued to open up far greater possibilities with test kits that are more specific, that are more reliable, that are helping to make the task of technologi Continue reading >>

The Basic Ketogenic Diet

The Basic Ketogenic Diet

Note: Please note that if you are interested in a Ketogenic Diet used to treat Epilepsy or Pediatric Epilepsy, please start at Johns Hopkins who are the pioneers in this field. The wikipedia page for the Ketogenic Diet diet also has information on the diet as it relates to treating epilepsy. The diet below is simply for rapid and effective weight loss and uses a 1 to 1 fat to protein ratio rather than the 4 to 1 fat to combined protein and carbs ratio of the Ketogenic Diet pioneered by Johns Hopkins used to treat epilepsy. [wp_ad_camp_3] Disclaimer: I am neither a doctor nor self proclaimed nutrition expert so please consult your doctor before starting any diet or taking any action that affects your health and wellbeing. After finishing Gary Taubes latest book, which seems to have rapidly become the cornerstone of a new approach to nutrition, I’ve become very interested in the Ketogenic diet. The speed of weight loss I’ve seen is incredible and my energy level has remained high. The science behind a ketogenic diet is solidly backed up by Taubes research published in “Good Calories, Bad Calories” and “Why we get fat“. According to Taubes’ research, it may also be the only way for people who have become severely insulin resistant, to effectively lose weight. The Ketogenic diet has always lived on the fringes of diet lore and has been seen as extreme. But the reality is that the low glycemic index diet (Low GI Diet) is effective because it is close to, but not quite, a ketogenic diet. Other diets like the South Beach Diet are also only effective because of the reduction in carbs and consequently insulin levels. The science behind this diet looks solid and it is part of the massive shift in nutrition research we’ve seen in the last few years. Prominent sport Continue reading >>

The Role Of Point-of-care Blood Testing For Ketones In The Diagnosis Of Diabetic Ketoacidosis

The Role Of Point-of-care Blood Testing For Ketones In The Diagnosis Of Diabetic Ketoacidosis

RESEARCH A CoetzeeI; M HoffmannII; B H Ascott-EvansIII IMMed (Int), FCP (SA). Division of Endocrinology, Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Stellenbosch University, Tygerberg, Cape Town, South Africa IIMMed (Chem Path). Department of Chemical Pathology, Tygerberg National Health Laboratory Service, Stellenbosch University, Tygerberg, Cape Town, South Africa IIIFCP (SA). Division of Endocrinology, Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Stellenbosch University, Tygerberg, Cape Town, South Africa ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Urine dipstick testing for ketones is widely used when diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is suspected in patients with hyperglycaemia. If urinary ketones are positive, patients are referred for further management - often inappropriately, as the test is a poor surrogate for plasma ketones. Plasma beta-hydroxybutyrate (β-OHB) levels >3 mmol/L are diagnostic of DKA, while levels <1 mmol/L are insignificant OBJECTIVES: To evaluate a hand-held electrochemical (point-of-care testing; POCT) ketone monitor and compare it with the gold-standard manual enzymatic method (MEM) for detection of plasma ketones METHODS: In a prospective and comparative study, we evaluated the measurement of β-OHB by means of POCT and the MEM in 61 consecutive samples from patients with suspected DKA at Tygerberg and Karl Bremer hospitals, Cape Town, South Africa. Capillary (for POCT) and plasma samples (for the MEM) were obtained simultaneously and compared for accuracy. Precision was assessed with control samples RESULTS: The POCT method was precise (coefficient of variation <4.5%), and there was a good correlation between the two methods (r=0.95). Regression analysis showed a proportional bias, with POCT reading higher than the MEM. Howev Continue reading >>

Four Weeks Of Strict Lchf And Ketone Monitoring

Four Weeks Of Strict Lchf And Ketone Monitoring

Can ketone measurement help you lose weight and improve performance? That’s the main question I’ll be trying to answer with my four-week experiment. See Report #1 for diet and experiment design. Note: This experiment was done six months ago and initially only reported on my Swedish blog. This is a somewhat delayed translation! Below are graphs of my weight and waistline over this first four-week period, as well as the results of blood and urine ketone measurements. After two to three weeks of light nutritional ketosis, I’ve now spent 8 days in “optimal ketosis” – that is, between 1.5 – 3 mmol/L. Want to know what’s happened? The effects of optimal ketosis Weight Although happy with my weight before this experiment, I’ve become noticeably leaner: -4kgs (9 pounds) and -6cm (2,5 inches) around the waist. This, of course, in complete absence of hunger – in fact, I’ve seldom felt so constantly sated. Food is tasty to eat at mealtimes, but I can skip a meal without even blinking. My weight – initally 100kgs – was already well within normal range, considering I’m 202 cm tall – 6 feet 7 inches – and do strength training regularly. The other measurement I kept track of was my waistline. 94cm or less around the waist is considered excellent for men; I started out with 91cm, and am now around 85cm (33 inches). I need to punch a new hole in my belt, which means I’m leaner than I’ve been in a very long time. Not bad for a forty-year-old father who has limited time to work out and always eats his fill! Mental effects Being the father of a small child, I often get tired from lack of sleep, and during the first week of the experiment I sometimes felt even woozier than usual. This is natural while the brain adapts to running on ketones. The last two w Continue reading >>
