Having some of the signs of diabetes doesn't mean you definitely have the condition, but you should always contact your doctor, just to make sure. Most early symptoms are from higher-than-normal levels of glucose, a kind of sugar, in your blood. Common Symptoms The common symptoms of diabetes include: Going to the toilet a lot, especially at night. Being really thirsty. Feeling more tired than usual. Losing weight without trying to. Genital itching or thrush. Cuts and wounds take longer to heal. Blurred vision. Type 1 Diabetes Although the majority of people with Type 1 diabetes are diagnosed in childhood and early adulthood, the symptoms are the same at any age. Adults diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes may not recognise their symptoms as quickly as children, which in turn will prove detrimental as diagnosis then treatment may be delayed. High levels of glucose being passed in the urine are a perfect breeding grou

10 Signs You Could Be In Ketosis, And What To Do

Ketosis tends to be thought of as a word associated with diabetes, and in fact, it’s a word that diabetics fear. People with this condition are closely monitored for ketones in their urine, which can be an indication of a dangerous condition that can be life-threatening to a diabetic. However, very few people understand exactly what ketosis is, outside of its supposed dangers to those suffering from blood-glucose-related conditions. Ketosis, for example, isn’t always a bad thing for healthy people. It is, in fact, a normal metabolic process and in some ways is essential to your body’s normal functioning. It can be a means by which people can achieve weight loss. It’s a risk factor in diabetics because of other things that it represents—specifically, not using insulin properly. What exactly is ketosis, and how does it affect your body function? Let’s examine what ketosis is, how it works, the function it serves in your body, and the signs you might be in ketosis, as well as how to monitor for danger and when to seek medical attention for the condition. What is ketosis? Ketosis is something that happens naturally in your body[1] when you need to burn something other than Continue reading >>

    I am just wondering if there are any signs of ketosis that one can watch for that a person can see without any sort of testing? Are there things that happen physically that give clues?
    I don’t have any means of testing anything. I have a simple bathroom scale. That’s pretty much my only tool.
    I’ve been eating what I think is a pretty strict keto diet for about 4 days shy of one month. I’ve had a day or two when I didn’t exactly feel the greatest but never anything resembling the flu. I’ve had a couple of small oopsies but quite small ones, not within the last week or so, and less than I would have fingers for counting on one hand. I’ve been pretty good. I haven’t done anything extraordinary exercise wise, just a little walking. I’ve lost 19 pounds and feel pretty good. Brain seems pretty clear. No real issues that I can point towards except maybe a few restless nights, but even that isn’t dramatic, and getting used to new bowel habits.
    One thing I have noticed several times in the last week, when I take a shower in the mornings, I kinda notice what I think might be my breath. It’s not quite the same acetone smell I’ve noticed after a hard workout (when I had my elliptical machine). But it’s still a peculiar smell. I’ve wondered if that might be a hint that I may be in ketosis.
    So that got me to wondering whether that or maybe some other subtle things might be little clues of being in ketosis.
    I hope I haven’t plowed right into the content of a previous thread. I didn’t see it if it’s here, though, I’ll be the first to admit, I haven’t read them all.
    Glad to hear what you think if you’d care to share!

    And thanks for being here to talk about something that so many people haven’t a clue about. To most, it’s total deer-in-the-headlights talking about keto.

    Unless you have a really broken metabolism and need super super low carbs you are in ketosis and have been for a while. It does take a bit longer to really start running on fat as routine - what people call being fat adapted.

    It drove me mad not knowing though and I had to get gadgets!

10 Signs That The Body Might Be In Ketosis

A low carb, high fat diet called the ketogenic diet may help with improving weight and health. In response, the body produces ketones to help energize the brain. Here are some signs the body may be in this “ketosis” phase: Bad breath (from elevated ketone levels), weight loss, increased ketones in the blood, breath, or urine, decreased appetite, more focus and energy, short term fatigue and decrease in performance, digestive issues, and insomnia. The most accurate assessment of this is to measure ketones in the breath, urine, or blood, on a regular basis. Key Takeaways: A decrease in hunger is a sign of ketone diet. The body learns to burn fat rather than consume more food. Higher levels of ketones in the blood are a sign the diet is working. Ketogenic diets makes weight loss quick. Initially it is water weight then the body fat starts to drop off. “Many people on ketogenic diets and similar diets, such as the Atkins diet, report that their breath takes on a fruity smell.” Read more: Continue reading >>

    Hello, Keto veterans out there! How do I know if I'm in ketosis? I know it's not overly necessary to know, but I'm curious.
    I've been sticking to Keto faithfully for 5 days now, keeping my macros at 5%C-25%P-70%F. I've never been over 20g of net carbs since I started, and I have been hitting my 70-75% fat macro almost perfectly.
    I have read about the "ketosis" signs to look for ('fruity' breath, different smell to urine, metalic taste in the mouth, more energy), but I haven't noticed any of these. The only thing is that I lost 2 lbs. overnight. I also haven't been experiencing the dreaded "carb flu" that everyone talks about, but that may be because I've been keeping my fat intake quite high (70-75%) and drinking plenty of water (10-12 glasses at least). Also in the past month I have been reducing my carbs gradually down to about 100-125g/day, until I started keto five days ago.
    Is there anyway to know for sure?
    (Unfortunately, I don't have any Keto strips, at the moment - they don't sell them near here, so I had to order them online. They're in the mail.)

    My personal glucose-to-ketones transition may be unique, but I remember sitting at the dining room table, doing homework on my laptop, when I got the sudden urge to go for a run or exercise or something.
    I ended up cleaning up the whole apartment (at the time I was attending college and had 4 housemates - I'm sure you can imagine how messy it was). I literally could not continue sitting and clacking away at the keyboard. I had to move.
    That was my transition and I knew, without a doubt, I had entered ketosis. Perhaps your experience will be similar.

    Hello, Keto veterans out there! How do I know if I'm in ketosis? I know it's not overly necessary to know, but I'm curious.
    I've been sticking to Keto faithfully for 5 days now, keeping my macros at 5%C-25%P-70%F. I've never been over 20g of net carbs since I started, and I have been hitting my 70-75% fat macro almost perfectly. It would be virtually impossible to NOT be in ketosis at this point. You're well on your way to being fully keto-adapted.
    I have read about the "ketosis" signs to look for ('fruity' breath, different smell to urine, metalic taste in the mouth, more energy), but I haven't noticed any of these. Many people do NOT experience those. Those are signs during the initial entry into ketosis usually experienced by someone who's done a much-more drastic dietary change than you've done.
    If you're used to eating 50-60% carbs, then go into ketosis, you'll likely experience some or all of those symptoms for a day or two, sometimes more. For someone that's reduced carbohydrate more gradually, and is already relatively low-carb, the shift is often asymptomatic.
    The only thing is that I lost 2 lbs. overnight. I also haven't been experiencing the dreaded "carb flu" that everyone talks about, but that may be because I've been keeping my fat intake quite high (70-75%) and drinking plenty of water (10-12 glasses at least). Also in the past month I have been reducing my carbs gradually down to about 100-125g/day, until I started keto five days ago. The weight-loss is likely a result of lost water/glycogen as you push further into keto-adaptation. Because you were already quite low-carb, you'll likely not experience the 'keto-flu' or other symptoms.
    Is there anyway to know for sure?
    (Unfortunately, I don't have any Keto strips, at the moment - they don't sell them near here, so I had to order them online. They're in the mail.) Ketostix sometimes don't even register, especially for those of us that stay well-hydrated. If you test on a day when your water intake is lower, you'll most definitely get a pink result. Purple would mean you're very dehydrated ...
    If you've already been under 100g and at a reasonable caloric intake, it's also quite possible you already WERE in ketosis and didn't know it. Many people mistakenly think you need to eat 20-30g to be in ketosis, and that's not necessarily the case.
    It's easier to GET ketogenic starting at 20-30g a day, and some find best glycemic control, etc., at very low levels, but most people eating 2000+ calories a day can easily maintain ketosis/keto-adaptation at 100g a day of carbohydrate if they're not sedentary.
    As an anecdotal example, for me to get OUT of ketosis takes 2-3 full SEDENTARY days of 150g + carbohydrate intake. There are some people that think I'm not ketogenic at 50 or 70g of carbohydrate a day . . . they're simply misinformed.
    Lyle McDonald - a leading expert on ketogenic diets - states:
    "Since many books give the 30 g/day value for a ketogenic diet, folks get a little anxious about carb intakes that are higher than that.
    However, strictly speaking, any diet with less than 100 g/day of carbohydrate will cause ketosis to develop to some degree (more ketones will be generated as carbs are lowered)." Those who engage in exercise, especially strength-training, can often eat a little more than others without issue. Lyle did some calculations (rough, by his own admission) and states:
    "The carbohydrate requirements for weight training actually aren’t that great. I did some rough calculations in The Ketogenic Diet and concluded that, for every 2 work sets (assuming a set length of 30-45 seconds) or so, you’ll need 5 grams of carbohydrates to replenish the glycogen used.
    So if you did a workout containing 24 work sets, you’d only need about 60 extra grams (24 sets * 5 grams/2 sets = 60 grams) of carbohydrate to replace the glycogen used." 24 sets is 4 sets of six exercises ... which is a fairly heavy day for many of us. I typically do 5 sets of 4 exercises every-other-day. This would be 20*5/2 = 50g ... however I'm a little larger than most so I'll typically have 50, 70 even 90g of carbohydrate on my strength-training days, depending on the effort.
    So, what I'm saying is if you were exercising, especially doing strength-training or any anaerobic interval training, etc., while eating 100-125g of carbohydrate a day, you were quite-possibly already IN ketosis . . .

Top Five Signs Your Body Is In Ketosis

When starting a ketogenic diet the end goal is to establish a state of ketosis. If you are new to this whole keto thing, being in ketosis means your body has switched over from using glucose (sugar from the carbs we ingest) for fuel to an alternate fuel called ketones (ketones are made from the breakdown of fatty acids in the liver). One of the first questions I always get is "How will I know when I am in ketosis"? Below are my top five indicators your body has switched over to ketogenic state. 1. Keto Breath Known to only last a few weeks, this can be an annoying side effect. Caused by an elevated level of acetone (specific ketone offender) released through your sweat, urine or breath. Keto breath has been known to have metallic or even over ripened fruity taste. Be sure to drink plenty of water, and have an extra stash of sugar-free gum. 2. Mental Focus Ketones are an extremely potent fuel source for the brain. With your brain running more on ketones than glucose; the high amount of fats that you are consuming (75-80% of your diet should be coming from high-quality fat sources) your liver is converting into energy for your brain. Mental focus can differ from person to person. How Continue reading >>
