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...

The Theory.

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 Continue reading >>

    I haven't time for a full reply as doing bedtime, but my DD had something happen to her about 12 weeks ago at 10 months and at the time the A&E team mention KH. At the moment it has only happened once and we are totally in the dark about it all. We were discharged with a blood sugar monitor and told to give her jam and call 999 should it happen again. Hv was totally useless!! so we are just playing a waiting game.
    I posted on here when it happened and another lady got in touch from Brighton (i think) who had a DD with the same condition but like you it had happend repeatedly. She was a real comfort through our uncertainty. She may notice this new thread.

    You need to get a referral to a consultant: Jam, are they incompetant these days or just plain mad. Dont get me wrong it would work but as a parent you dont know how quickly, have you given enough, etc. Its a very serious illness. You need to see your GP and ask for a referral to the hospital, they will give you glucogel (hypostop) a medicated formula of JAM lol.
    I do hope to speak to the lady you've suggested.

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 Continue reading >>

How Signs and Symptoms of Diabetes Changed How We Think About Death in Infants Children and Adults

Hypoglycemia In Infants And Children

Hypoglycemia in Infants and Children Authors: Robert A. Felter, MD, FAAP, CPE, FACPE, Professor of Clinical Pediatrics, Georgetown University School of Medicine; Assistant Director, Pediatric Inpatient and Emergency Service, Inova Loudoun Hospital, Leesburg, VA. Ron D. Waldrop, MD, FACEP, CPE, FACPE, Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics, Georgetown University School of Medicine; Director, Pediatric Inpatient and Emergency Services, Inova Loudoun Hospital, Leesburg, VA. Peer Reviewer: Ademola Adewale, MD, FAAEM, Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine, Assistant Program Director, Florida Hospital Emergency Medicine Residency Program, Orlando, FL. 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 Continue reading >>

    So I don't know if I'm just grasping here, but I ran across info on ketotic hypoglycemia when doing a search for "vomiting no fever" and it sounds like it could fit our situation.
    We don't have a LOT of these episodes, but occasionally my son, who will be 7 at the end of Oct, will vomit first thing in the morning. It is all liquid, slightly yellow. I haven't kept track of whether or not he has a fever with these or diarrhea because I just thought he might be more sensitive to stomach viruses than the rest of us or something along those lines.
    But last week Wed. he vomited twice in the morning, had no fever and no diarrhea. A little bite of a strawberry made him vomit again the second time. Eventually he could sip on water again and he was fully eating by 2:30 that afternoon. I made him rest and didn't give him anything heavy to eat, assuming it was a virus.
    After that he was fine for a full week, no diarrhea, no vomiting, no virus symptoms of any kind. None of the rest of us had any symptoms.
    Now this morning he woke up and vomited first thing and then once more. He was ready to start eating and drinking again by 9:30 this morning and has kept everything down. Again, no fever and no diarrhea.
    Once I found the info on the ketotic hypoglycemia I saw that not eating enough the night before (which he didn't last night) can cause this to happen. I know there have been other times when he has only eaten a very small amount of dinner but didn't vomit the next day, so it doesn't seem to be an every time thing. Though maybe he ate less carbs during the day, or less overall during the day... I'll have to start paying closer attention.
    We eat relatively healthy but this boy loves bread and I just decided to cut it out recently (I have GI issues and my younger son stays away from bread so I wonder if it's just not good for him and his body is telling him not to eat much of it). I haven't even cut it out completely yet, as I'm not going to throw out what we have in the house, I'm just not buying any new stuff. That is the only diet change I've made and it hasn't even really been implemented yet.
    He eats lots of fruit and a little bit of meat. Will eat certain veggies and will drink veggie juice when we do it. Will eat sushi (not raw) and beans and cheese and yogurt and eggs...
    He mainly seems to be "picky" at dinner time and is really just not a lover of meat or veggies. This ends up in him eating only a very small portion of the dinner, or me feeling like I need to make him beans every night to guarantee he'll eat a decent sized meal. This is not something I've ever done, I've always served dinner and that's it. I don't do the restaurant kitchen. Obviously if it's a real health issue, I'll modify this policy.
    So, questions...
    Does anyone have any experience with this? Do I need to start to monitor his glucose?
    I read that it can't really be diagnosed, just other things ruled out... anyone have experience taking this theory to a doctor with success?
    I also read that a bed time snack will be helpful, any ideas for this that don't involve flour products?
    I'm also willing to have bread in the house for him, if this is going to help him, and just give him a peanut butter toast at night after his brother goes to bed.

    I don't know about ketotic hypoglycemia but in some ways it sounds similar to a genetic disorder that runs in my family called Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, or MCAD, deficiency. It is the inability to convert certain types of fat to energy, particularly during fasting. Symptoms include stomach upset, vomiting, low blood sugar, etc. For children even an over night fast can be enough to trigger it. The more extreme symptoms are scary but if a person knows about it there is little risk of them occurring because it's easy to manage.
    I found out about it during a genetic test. I am a "symptomatic carrier". So I have one copy of the gene and have milder symptoms that sound very similar to what you described. Fasting longer than 6 hours often makes me feel strange and hunger sometimes just feels yucky and I don't want to eat so as a kid I often skipped meals or didn't eat enough. That just makes symptoms worse though. Frequent protein + complex carb snacks help (I guess the extra doses of short and long chain fatty acids are making up for the medium chain) as does a supplement called L-carnitine at a dose of one gram a day. I have no idea if that supplement is safe for kids, that is just what has worked for me. If I have to fast for surgery or something I request IV with glucose instead of Saline.
    The test to find it was just a saliva test that I mailed off to a company in California, and it was covered by insurance. There are also short and long chain versions of the disorder. Hope this helps!

    Ginger tea works great with vomiting and can get him back on track quickly in the morning
    I didn't read the whole post, so I may have missed something, but is he eating dinner too long before bedtime, or not eating enough at dinner?
    Traditional Medicinals makes a ginger and a ginger aid tea. Either should work. You can make it the night before and give it to him first thing already cool.
    Good luck! Hope the tea helps.
