Keto Induction Vs Hypoglycemia

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community Resurgam Type 2 (in remission!) 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.

    Depending on how much this may increase leptin sensitivity, and improve thyroid hormone function (which this article doesn't mention but I've read about elsewhere), well those things do matter. People have reported hair growth from this though, that does suggest some positive hormonal changes and possibly upregulating of metabolism through free T3.
    I'll leave the cold water therapy to you though, yikes One of the things that has come out of diabetes is that I can dial my weight to whatever I want, no cold showers required, not that I'd want to endure that. I did struggle with this for quite a while but the lessons I learned when I dropped down to skeleton man weren't wasted I think that the biggest thing by far that works for me is limiting food take with a particular emphasis on carb and protein restriction but not overdoing the fat as well, however it's often not as easy as that with some of us which does suggest hormonal issues apart from what can be managed by such a dietary strategy. Insulin and leptin are both huge here I'd say and leptin involves more than just appetite control.

Home Remedies for Chills 1-Get Warm Shower A warm shower is also a good way to raise the temperature. Any clothing that is wet from being in the cold should be removed and replaced with clean, dry clothing. Warm beverages can be consumed to raise the body temperature as well. 2-Drink Cranberry Juice If the chills and fever are associated with a urinary tract infection, drink plenty of water and/or cranberry juice to wash the toxins from the body and clear the infection. If that doesnt work, you might try one of the over the counter medications such as Uristat. 3-Get Allergy Medicines Many different medications can cause allergic reactions that include chills. In most cases, an over the counter medication such as Benadryl will alleviate the problem. In addition, gradually warming the body with layers of clothing and drinking warm liquids will help until the reaction subsides. If it doesnt get better, medical intervention may be necessary. 4-Use Warm Water To relieve chills that are accompanied

Got The Chills? It Could Be Your Low-carb Diet!

It was never my intention to find myself on a fad diet I just wanted to eat sensibly, eat the foods I like and maintain a healthy weight. However, I have just discovered (yes, in a definite Doh! moment!) that for the last 2 months I am unintentionally on a low-carb diet! I havent deliberately set out to eat a low-carbohydrate diet at all I just set out to cut back on added sugars in my diet! However, sugar is one of the three main forms of carbohydrate , and although I have cut back drastically on sugar, I guess I havent particularly increased (substantially anyway) my carbohydrate intake as much as I thought I had. It felt like it I was eating (gleefully) a heck of a lot more bread than I used to (whole wheat of course), and packing lettuce and tomato into my sandwiches. But, it would appear, that is not enough! Mind you, it could be argued that by cutting back on added sugar, when I eat what I want and try to be sensible I am on a low-carb/high fat regime! 2 month intake of Protein, Fats and Carbohydrates with recommended percentages highlighted My resting heart rate has taken bit of a dip lately from 55-58 bpm to 53-55 bpm. I decided to subscribe to Fitbit Premium , which analy Continue reading >>

    Has anyone experienced any of the following since doing the BP diet?
    1. An increased sensitivity to cold temperature
    2. A drop in body temperature when at rest; or at least the feeling of.
    3. Apparent deterioration in blood circulation
    Manifestations:
    Cold hands & feet at night & morning when resting
    Dry skin at fingertips
    The above applies to when at rest. The symptoms improve when exercising.
    It's odd - my brain feels rested, clean & active, while the rest of my body seems to slow down at rest.

    This sounds like underactive thyroid to me.

    Is there a component in the BP diet that might reduce thyroid activity?
    Note no unusual fatigue, low mood or any other symptom of hypothyroidism (I just looked it up ).
    Anything to do with lack of carbs or fructose, or withdrawal from, I wonder..

How To Treat Cold Sores | How To Stop Getting Cold Sores | How To Prevent A Cold Sore When You Feel It Coming | Cold Sore Treatments Hey guys! This weeks video is about cold sores, how to prevent them and how to try and treat them. I couldn't find any information to clinically prove the effectiveness of some cold sore remedies seen online like distilled vinegar, witch hazel and alcohol, so I can't recommend them. But feel free to leave a comment if you've tried them to let us know how effective they were. WHAT ARE COLD SORES: About 1 in 5 people in the UK have recurring cold sores. Cold sores usually resolve on their own without treatment in 7-10 days. Cold sores, also known as fever blisters or oral herpes, are very common. They can be easy to recognise as they usually appear as red bumps or blisters around the lips and mouth. Cold sores are caused by herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1), the oral form of the virus. In fact, 67% of the world population under age 50 has HSV-1 because it is so contagious Once you are infected, the virus never leaves your body. Most people arent exactly sure when they first encountered the virus. Its usually contracted in early childhood where it may not a

Ketosis Is Cold! | Minimins.com

Well, since my restart I finally got into ketosis last Friday, and been in good going ketosis for a few days now and boy am I cold, and I mean freeeeezing.

    I'm on Day 7 and feeling like crap. I've had a blazing headache pretty much continuous since Day 2. At first I thought it was due to the caffeine withdrawal, but now that I'm on Day 7, it can't possibly be that. In addition, my head just feels like it's in a fog -- I can't concentrate or focus very well, my energy levels are incredibly low, my mouth feels like cotton and I'm drinking water constantly, and for the past couple days I've started to feel minor chest pains (like someone is squeezing my heart).
    My cousin, who is a nurse, warned me this cleanse might send me into ketosis, which can become acidosis, and both conditions are unhealthy and put stress on the liver. Can someone please explain? Are my symptoms a sign of ketosis or acidosis? I was doing the Whole30 to hopefully change my relationship with food (always an adversarial relationship before -- restriction mentality) and to cleanse my gut from inflammatory foods, but so far it's just making me feel terrible. I had probably a 75% compliant diet before starting Whole30, so this hasn't been a huge shift for me -- what I'm experiencing *isn't* just "carb flu".
    Here's what my typical meals have been:
    Breakfast
    -1 cup coffee (black)
    -2 eggs & 2-3 slices of bacon, or 1/2 sweet potato & 2-3 slices bacon, or 1 C. spaghetti squash w/1/3 c. browned ground pork & sauteed sweet peppers (for any of these, I would use 1/2 tsp. or so of coconut oil in the pan)
    -1/2 - 3/4 c. berries & bananas
    Lunch
    -Salad of mixed greens, assorted fresh veggies, 1/2 c. browned ground pork w/homemade balsamic vinagrette
    Afternoon snack
    -Handful of nuts, a piece of fruit, or fresh veggie slices
    **Sometimes I'm so ravenous by the time I get home, I have to have another snack of a hard-boiled egg the minute I walk in the door in order to have enough energy to cook dinner
    Dinner
    I've been cooking a lot of the meals from the WellFed book -- Moroccan Meatballs over spaghetti squash with cumin carrots on the side, or Salmon a l'Afrique du Nord with Brussels Sprouts. Last night I had grilled lamb & veggie kabobs.
    I've also been taking fermented cod liver oil supplements every day (I'm Vit D deficient).
    Can someone please help? Do I just need to stick it out a while longer, or am I doing something wrong? I'm becoming ineffective at work between this constant headache and the low energy levels. My cousin is begging me to at least eat gluten-free oats or white rice so I get some energy that is more easily available to my brain.
    Help before I give this up completely!

    First question: Do you exercise? If you do, there's no way your carb intake is enough to support your activity levels. If you don't, you could possibly be okay, but if you're used to a higher carb intake then your body is probably freaking out. I would suggest making sure you have a starchy carb at every meal and see if that helps your energy levels smooth out. The Whole30 is not intended to be a specifically low carb program, and from what I understand ketosis and ketoacidosis come from an extreme absence of carbohydrate in the diet (I'll check in with Melissa for confirmation).
    Second question: Could you be coming down with an illness? It's really common for all the changes in your body during a Whole30 to temporarily lower your defenses and make you a little more susceptible to nasty little bugs.
    I'm going to pass this question on to Melissa, too, in case she has anything to add.

  3. Emily

    I agree with your cousin that you need more carbs, but get them from sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash, acorn squash, butternut squash, pumpkin (I love this time of year) instead of grains. And hang in there- you are right in the toughest part.

    Not to be confused with Ketoacidosis. Ketosis is a metabolic state in which some of the body's energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis in which blood glucose provides energy.
