The Ketogenic Diet And Hypoglycemia

I wanted to write a technical post about a question I keep getting regarding the ketogenic diet and hypoglycemia. Even if youre not into the keto diet, I think you may find some useful ideas to makelow blood sugar less invasive in the short term. I recently shot a series of videos about the ketogenic diet and diabetes as part of my daily YouTube vlogging and you can check those out and subscribe here. My general goal in my diabetes management is minimalism. Minimal intervention, treatment and daily impact. The most basic manifestation of this is to aim for the use of less insulin, which can create greater blood sugar stability. This strategyled me to a low carb diet. The need to have athletic performance in addition to the blood sugar stability led me one step further to the keto diet. Using less insulin and eating fewer carbs means that lows do still happen but less frequently and they are easier to handle. Consider driving an empty truck down a hill. Its going to be easier to stop than if its loaded down and has greater momentum. The same concept applies to insulin loads and slowing the drop of blood sugar. Simply lightening the load can simplify control of the vehicle. When a l Continue reading >>

    Yesterday a paramedic was doing routine tests on me, which included a blood sugar level test. Mine was 3.1mmol/l. I had to take 2 tubes of the oral glucose gel to get it back within the normal range (above 4). They asked me if I had had something to eat that day and I did. I had a keto dinner (creamy cheesy spinach, tuna, and some broccoli and green beans sautéed in butter) 4-5 hours before the test.
    Is this normal when following keto? I don't think I have ever had a problem with a low blood sugar. Should I be worried? Or could it be something unrelated to keto and more to do with a medication I'm taking?
    Thanks guys.

    I was freezing and shivering. And the paramedic said my hands were very cold and clammy. I didn't have headache or dizziness, but some palpitations were present that came and go several times during the hour. I was surprised when they said I had low blood sugar because I didn't think I was. I don't know if those symptoms may be attributed to it.
    Also, a bit of a science question. I thought that body maintains blood sugar through glycogen (if carbs is significantly reduced) or through glycerol from the triglycerides. So even if you don't get enough carbs/sugar from food, your body gets it from fat/glycogen? So your blood sugar should still remain within the narrow range?

    No. Being in ketosis will in fact give you a far lower constant blood sugar, and is a normal part of being in this state.
    This is because ketosis is a complete shift in gear for your body's metabolism. You stop using glucose as an energy source (mostly), so it simply doesn't need to be present in the blood any more.
    Glycogen is mainly used as a temporary store of glucose when you are on a "normal" carb-based diet. It's stored in your liver and muscles and will deplete over a day or two after you start a keto diet, and thereafter your body's metabolism will completely move to a ketone/fat-based one.
    Your body will convert protein, either from outside sources or your own muscle to get its minimum needed glucose if you are eating a truly tiny / non-existent amount of carbs. The recommended 20-30 grams daily is easily enough for your body's needs during ketosis, though.
    All that said, you should definitely try and find out what gave you such serious symptoms; maybe it was deficiency in other minerals (or maybe it was truly blood sugar in some way) but if the paramedics weren't informed you were practising a keto diet that might have lead them to a wrong conclusion (not necessarily, but might have).

Well-Known Member I had what must have been false hypos when I switched to low carb, which I treated with a few grapes, then a sit down for a few minutes until the feeling passed. I think that if I had allowed myself to become anxious and consumed a lot of carbs I'd have been bouncing around like a ping pong ball. The relief did not last all that long, but I was at home so it was not all that dangerous - though I did get lost on my way to bed - I turn out all the lights and walk from the landing to bed in almost total darkness, but we have lived here for decades so it was quite a strange feeling to become disoriented. After a day or so the feeling passed and I went into ketosis, but I did have to persist. I could have dropped the carb count more slowly to allow time for my body to adapt - but I have never been afraid of low carb, and still aren't despite the hypo feeling.

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the a

Can A Ketogenic Diet Cause Hypoglycemia Or Low Blood Sugar?

Short Answer: It can but usually only in the first few weeks of keto and usually in only the most insulin resistant. Your Old Diet Before we get into how hypoglycemia is possible with a ketogenic diet, let’s review what happens with your blood sugar levels when you start a ketogenic diet. While you were eating your traditional high-carb Standard American Diet, you were training your body to produce a large amount of insulin with every meal. This insulin was important because the high levels pf blood glucose your diet was producing was toxic to your body so your body had to get that sugar out of the blood stream and into cells where it could be used as fuel or stored as glycogen of triglycerides. Your New Diet Now let’s look at what happens when you start a ketogenic diet. Your body continues to produce the same amount of insulin when you eat which should cause your blood sugar levels to drop so instead, your body begins to pull sugar out of all the nooks and crannies in your body where it stored it. The first reservoir to be tapped is the glycogen stored in your muscles. This stock of sugar is large enough that you can potentially go several weeks with normal blood sugars on ke Continue reading >>
