    > Ketosis taste in mouth?

    I caught a glimpse of a thread somewhere mentioning a taste in the mouth that some people get when they are in ketosis....anyone know what I'm talking about?

  2. MorganMac

    Yep, it's rather common. Ketone bodies (such as acetone) are excreted from the body in the breath and urine. Many people get "keto breath" for awhile when they start a LC diet :)

Post-bariatric Surgery Starvation Ketoacidosis And Lipase Elevation In The Absence Of Dka Or Pancreatitis

Abstract We report a case of post bariatric surgery by laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy who presented with post-surgical poor oral tolerance and high anion gap metabolic ketoacidosis, who was initially misdiagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis and treated with volume supplementation without improvement. The metabolic derangements were found to be caused by starvation ketoacidosis, which was then treated with glucose supplementation, and the anion gap quickly closed. Moreover, this patient also presented with non-pancreatitis lipase elevation. This case highlights the recognition and management of post-bariatric surgery starvation ketoacidosis; additionally, clinicians should be vigilant about the interpretation and management of elevated lipase without clinical pancreatitis. To access this article, please choose from the options below Continue reading >>

    There's a report of this from Turkey in the medical literature. I am skeptical. There is also a report from Switzerland of two cases of heart attack in people who came into the ER after using both marijuana and amphetamines. I would tend to think that the heart issue was related to the amphetamines, not the marijuana. That doesn't mean pot is never ever harmful, but it's difficult to see how it could cause a heart attack.

    Will I feel when I'm in ketosis?

    Thread title.

  2. shadowwalker021

    yep. especially if this is your first time. you will feel tired and sluggish. irritable, weak, and moody. you'll get headaches, cramps, and experience "brain fog". your breath and urine will smell like fruit. most people say they get a metallic taste in their mouth (i never experienced this as i have never eaten metal before so i don't know what it tastes like).
    after about 2-3 weeks you will suddenly feel awesome and you will have more energy than you've probably ever experienced in your life.

    Let’s break it down so that you can understand exactly what ketosis is and how it differs from ketoacidosis. But the states they refer to are nothing alike. In this case, maybe mistakes are understandable. Many people who believe that ketosis is dangerous are mixing it up with another state called "ketoacidosis." The two words do sound very similar. And some people simply make mistakes. Profit motives tend to muddy up the works when it comes to ...

    Abstract Starvation ketosis outside pregnancy is rare and infrequently causes a severe acidosis. Placental production of hormones, including glucagon and human placental lactogen, leads to the insulin resistance that is seen in pregnancy, which in turn increases 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. Ketoacido ...
