Take Dr. Berg's Body Type Quiz: http://bit.ly/BodyTypeQuiz Dr. Berg talks about his theory on dementia, blood pressure control and stroke. There are a lot of unknowns about dementia. But there is an interesting associated factor, i.e. the build up of calcium in the arteries of the brain. Also, if the arteries get packed with calcium packing, the arteries get hard and it might be one of the causes for high blood pressure. Stroke is a situation of blocking of vascular blood flow to the brain. Dosages to try: Healthy normal person: Vitamin D3 (10,000 IUs) + Vitamin K2 (MK-7) (100mcg) per day Unhealthy person: Vitamin D3 (30,000 IUs) + Vitamin K2 (MK-7) (300mcg) per day Vitamin D and K2 work together and help to mobilize calcium. You may want to consume both vitamins, in the morning with butter or coconut oil for better absorption (due to being fat soluble). Vitamin D3 is about absorption of calcium and vitamin K2 is about directing where calcium goes - both working together to keep your arteries and soft tissues clean and your bones strong. Unless you have osteoporosis, I would not recommend taking extra calcium. Instead consume some cheese on a daily basis. Most of the calcium in the body is recycled so adding more, is not needed. Never consume calcium carbonate (limestone) as your calcium. If you take calcium and vitamin D without K2, you may be in danger of excess calcium build up - calcification of your vessels. Yet K2 is a powerful inhibitor of calcification of soft tissues. If you need help digesting fats or are missing a gallbladder, I recommend a product called Gallbladder Formula: https://shop.drberg.com/gallbladder-f...

Tell me who this sounds like: The typical patient with ketotic hypoglycemia is a "toddler", a young child between the ages of 10 months and 4 years. Episodes nearly always occur in the morning after an overnight fast, often longer than usual. Symptoms include those of neuroglycopenia, ketosis, or both. The neuroglycopenic symptoms usually include lethargy and malaise, but may include unresponsiveness or seizures. The principal symptoms of ketosis are anorexia, abdominal discomfort, and nausea, sometimes progressing to vomiting. If severe, parents usually take the child to a local emergency department, where blood is drawn. The glucose is usually found to be between 35 and 60 mg/dl (1.8-3.1 mMol/L). The total CO2 is usually somewhat low as well, (14-19 mMol/L is typical), and if urine is obtained, high levels of ketones are discovered. Ketones can also be measured in the blood at the bedside (Medisense glucometer). Other routine tests are normal. If given intravenous fluids with saline and dextrose, the child improves dramatically and is usually restored to normal health within a few hours. A first episode is usually attributed to a "viral infection" or acute gastroenteritis. Howeve
Facts About Child Vomiting (ketotic Hypoglycemia)
Most of the times when the child does vomit the reason remain unknown to the parents. But there can be various reason of vomiting other than the handful of some common reasons such as illness, stomach flu, etc. Thus be aware when your baby is vomiting in the middle of the night and there is no sign of fever. One of the main factors of vomiting in the middle of the night in the child is the fluctuations in the blood sugar level of the child. This kind of condition is normally seen in the child of age 8 months to about 5 years of age. This problem is scientifically termed as ketotic hypoglycemia and is predominantly caused due to the irregularities in the food timing of the child. Your child will feel nausea and discomfort in the abdominal portion before he actually does vomit. And half hour past vomiting your child will not feel any kind of discomfort. Often parents misjudge the ketotic hypoglycemia with the stomach flu or vomiting due to fever. The immediate symptoms of the ketotic hypoglycemia are midnight vomiting and quick recovery. Also, the vomitus due to ketotic hypoglycemia has a distinct yellow tinge to it with a bubbly texture. First thing the parents should do is that the

Hypoglycemia is the most common metabolic disorder in children. The causes for hypoglycemia are many and diverse.1 One of the most frequent causes of hypoglycemia is insulin/glucose imbalance in diabetic children; since the management of diabetes and its complications is a subject on its own, this topic will not be included in this issue. The authors focus on issues important to the emergency physician, with emphasis on the need to diagnose and treat hypoglycemia quickly. In the very young infant, failure to recognize and treat hypo
Definition The condition called hypoglycemia is literally translated as low blood sugar. Hypoglycemia occurs when blood sugar (or blood glucose) concentrations fall below a level necessary to properly support the body's need for energy and stability throughout its cells. Description Carbohydrates are the main dietary source of the glucose that is manufactured in the liver and absorbed into the bloodstream to fuel the body's cells and organs. Gluc ...
A A A Diabetic Ketoacidosis Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) results from dehydration during a state of relative insulin deficiency, associated with high blood levels of sugar level and organic acids called ketones. Diabetic ketoacidosis is associated with significant disturbances of the body's chemistry, which resolve with proper therapy. Diabetic ketoacidosis usually occurs in people with type 1 (juvenile) diabetes mellitus (T1DM), but diabetic keto ...
A low blood sugar, also called hypoglycemia or an insulin reaction, is defined as a blood glucose level below 60 to 70 mg/dl. It is usually companied by one or more of the symptoms described below. Low blood sugars or insulin reactions can occur whenever insulin is used. Although less frequent, it can also occur with use of drugs that stimulate insulin production in Type 2 diabetes, such as Diabenese, Glyburide, Glipizide, and Starlix. Hypoglycem ...
There are a few kids out there who are prone to hypoglycemia. They may be diabetic and on insulin, or have ketotic hypoglycemia or metabolic disorders that cause them to drop their blood sugars with stress. One thing that mothers can do is stock up on cake frosting. Your next patient is a small five-year-old boy who is rather thin and pale. He is lying on the gurney and not responding to anything. On rapid assessment, his airway, breathing and ci ...
Hypoglycemia in simple terms can be described as blood sugar/glucose level dropping below the normal amount required by the human body. It can be a symptom of many other diseases and manifest clinically when the body and the brain cannot function as properly due to the lack of energy supplied by glucose. Brain is especially sensitive to the blood glucose levels, as glucose is the only source of energy brain can utilize; other tissues of the body ...
Question: From Moraga, California, USA: My daughter was diagnosed with ketotic hypoglycemia at two years, 10 months after a bout of rotavirus. She has consistently been in the 75th percentile for height and 90th percentile for weight, so she does not appear to fit the standard child with ketotic hypoglycemia I have read about. The episode occurred after a trip to a high altitude where she was extremely active (we live at sea level). She started v ...
