Herman Hesse said in his novel, Siddhartha: Everyone can perform magic, everyone can reach his goals, if he is able to think, if he is able to wait, if he is able to fast. Numerous studies have shown that caloric restriction increases the lifespan and youthfulness of almost all species, starting with fruit flies and ending with rhesus monkeys. In humans, there is no definite anti-aging proof but fastings been shown to improve biomarkers, reduce inflammation, promote stem cell growth, boost the immune system and make you burn a ton of fat. However, the key to successfully gaining these health benefits comes from avoiding malnutrition and starvation. Theres a hugedifference between fasting, starvationand caloric restriction, but it doesn't mean you can't be starving while intermittent fasting or consuming fewer calories. This video tells you how to avoid starvation mode while fasting and gain the longevity benefits More In-Depth video on autophagy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2kW_... Read the

Starvation Ketoacidosis In Pregnancy

Introduction: Starvation ketosis outside pregnancy is a rare phenomenon and is unlikely to cause a severe acidosis. Pregnancy is an insulin resistant state due to placental production of hormones including glucagon and human placental lactogen. Insulin resistance increases with advancing gestation and this confers a susceptibility to ketosis, particularly in the third trimester. Starvation ketoacidosis in pregnancy has been reported and is usually precipitated by a period of severe vomiting. Ketoacidosis has been associated with intrauterine death. Case report: A 22-year-old woman in her third pregnancy presented at 32 weeks gestation with a 24 h history of severe vomiting. She had been treated for an asthma exacerbation with prednisolone and erythromycin the day prior to presentation. She was unwell, hypertensive (145/70 mmHg) with a sinus tachycardia and Kussmaul breathing. Urinalysis showed ++++ ketones, + protein and pH 5. Fingerprick glucose was 4 mmol/l and ketones were 4.0 mmol/l. Arterial blood gas showed pH 7.27, PaCO2 1.1 kPa, base excess 23, bicarbonate 8.6 mmol/l and lactate 0.6 mmol/l. The anion gap was 20. Serum ethanol, salicylates and paracetamol levels were undete Continue reading >>

***Homemade Pregnancy Test with Sugar*** This test is considered as one of the most reliable and easiest of the DIY pregnancy testers. It is a common kitchen ingredient, which makes a cost-effective homemade pregnancy tester. This pregnancy test was mostly used in the earlier days. ***Things you need*** ***Sugar – 1 tbsp*** ***Bowl – 1*** ***Urine – 3 tbsp*** ***Things you need to do*** ***When you get up in the first thing you need to do is to collect your urine in a bowl.*** ***Now take 1 tbsp of sugar in a bowl.*** ***Pour approx. 1 tbsp of urine on the sugar in the bowl*** ***Wait for few minutes to observe the reaction of sugar in the urine*** ***If you find that the sugar has dissolved in the urine that means that you are not pregnant*** ***If you find that the sugar has clumped up in the urine, then the result is positive and you are pregnant*** ***The presence of the hCG hormone in the urine does not allow the sugar to get dissolved in the urine*** Note: Follow this process in the morning after you get up from the bed to get more accurate result.

Acute Starvation In Pregnancy: A Cause Of Severe Metabolic Acidosis - Sciencedirect

Volume 20, Issue 3 , July 2011, Pages 253-256 Acute starvation in pregnancy: a cause of severe metabolic acidosis Author links open overlay panel A.Patelab Get rights and content We report a case of starvation-induced metabolic ketoacidosis in a previously healthy 29-year-old, nulliparous woman at 32weeks of gestation. She was admitted to hospital with mild preeclampsia associated with persistent nausea and vomiting that progressed to severe preeclampsia requiring urgent control of hypertension before caesarean delivery. Prolonged and severe vomiting limited oral caloric intake and led to starvation ketoacidosis, characterised by ketonuria and a raised anion gap metabolic acidosis that required intensive care support. Despite significant metabolic derangement the patient appeared clinically well. Intravascular volume was replenished. Fluid restriction used as part of our preeclampsia treatment regimen delayed the therapeutic administration of sufficient dextrose, which rapidly corrected her metabolic derangement when commenced after delivery. Electrolyte supplementation was given to prevent re-feeding syndrome. Both mother and baby were discharged without sequelae. Continue reading >>

    Hi, I'm wondering what the effects of caffeine (from black coffee) does to the body's insulin response, and how it affects ketosis.

  2. Emmie618

    I know that it spurs metabolism, but I doubt that it spikes blood glucose because drinking black coffee is allowed before a fasting blood test. Since blood glucose is one of the items being tested, I doubt that caffeine would be permitted if it affected blood glucose.

  3. TILnothingAMA

    I wasn't allowed to drink coffee before having my blood tested because it affect the cortisol/adrenaline level.

In this video I discuss what is stress, why is stress bad, and what causes stress. I also cover how stress is bad, how to deal with stress, and stress management. Transcript What is stress? Whats up dudes, and whats up ladies, Bryan here and in this video we are going to look at stress. What is it, what causes it, and what can we do about it? So, Lets roll. Stress hormones Stress is your body's way of reacting to any kind of demand or threat. When the body feels stress, your hypothalamus, a tiny region in your brain, signals your adrenal glands, located atop your kidneys, to release a surge of hormones, which include adrenaline and cortisol, into the bloodstream. As these hormones are released, the liver is triggered to produce more blood sugar, which gives you an energy kick, breathing becomes more rapid, and heart beat and blood pressure rise. If the stress is caused by physical danger, these chemicals can be beneficial, as they give you more energy and strength, and also speed up your reaction time and enhance your focus. But, if the stress is caused by something emotional, it can be harmful, because there is no outlet for this extra energy and strength. Once the source of the s

Severe Acidosis Caused By Starvation And Stress.

Severe acidosis caused by starvation and stress. Department of Pediatrics, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, Milwauke, WI, USA. A 1-year-old boy had severe anoxic brain injury owing to a cardiorespiratory arrest. He had an initial metabolic acidosis, but this largely resolved by hospital day 2. He then had a persistent, profound metabolic acidosis. Evaluation on hospital day 6 found that the patient had ketonemia, ketonuria, and a normal serum glucose level; he had received no intravenous dextrose during his hospitalization. The dextrose-free fluids were given initially to protect his brain from the deleterious effects of hyperglycemia after brain injury. Continuation beyond 24 hours was inadvertent. The initiation of dextrose-containing intravenous fluids produced a rapid resolution of his metabolic acidosis. Starvation usually produces a mild metabolic acidosis, but when combined with physiologic stress, starvation may cause a severe metabolic acidosis. Among the few reports of severe starvation ketoacidosis, our case is unique because the patient was monitored closely in an intensive care unit, allowing us to describe the time course of the acidosis in detail.

    Have any of you in ketosis experienced depression when you first started? I've been paleo for almost a year now, but have always eaten a lot of fruit and veggies so my carbs were about 20% to 25%. Now I've been dialing back the fruit to one or two pieces a day and when I get hungry I just eat more meat instead of more fruit. It looks like my carbs are down around 5% to 7% now so I'm assuming I've been in ketosis for this past week?
    Anyway, I've been feeling a little run down and had trouble sleeping last night. Has anyone else had this experience? Did it go away?

    What are your fat sources and how much fat are you eating? If carbs make up 5% of your calories what makes up the other 95% (fat/protein)?? A certain amount of protein will be converted by the body into glucose, so if your diet is high in protein you may not be in ketosis. You could always check with a ketones test, I picked one up recently at a drug store for $15 but have not tried it yet. You can also calculate how ketogenic your diet is: http://www.ketotic.org/2011/05/total-ketogenic-ratio-tkr.html. My KR has been between 2.6 and 2.7 of late.
    Are you consuming any caffeine or alcohol? I have not experienced any effects on sleep from being in ketosis myself.

  3. abstract

    Well the other day I was at 29% protein, 62% fat and 9% carbs. I have about 3 cups of green tea a day while at work and alcohol is very rare; an occasional glass of red wine. Really today I feel pretty much fine. Maybe there was just an adjustment period.
