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.

Warning! Starvation Ketosis Is Serious

Beware of Starvation Ketosis Starvation ketosis is a serious condition that happens when your pregnant body is starved for nutrition, especially carbohydrates. With starvation ketosis, your tissues begin to breakdown and the byproducts of this ketabolism are called ketones, which actually aggravate nausea. To prevent starvation ketosis, try the following: Salty fluids, such as broths in chicken soup Oral electrolyte solutions (Pedialyte, available over the counter) Sports drinks Continue reading >>

    So I went to my 14 week check up today and I was having my typical morning sickness but maybe a little bit worse (riding in a car makes it worse and my doctor is a hr drive away). Well when I got in there they freaked out at me puking because they thought I had the flu (I thought they were about to call in hazmat!) but when I told them it was just my normal situation they started asking me question really concerned. I started to feel dumb that I hadn't worried more about how sick I had been but from being on here, reading up, and having preggie buddies that are sick I thought I was normal. Well they ran a bunch of tests on me and hooked me up to 2 bags of IV fluids. I was pretty scared at this point as I felt like the whole office was coming in to look at me. Well I'm 5'8 and was 208 at 3 weeks (the highest I had ever been due to endo flare ups that I was hoping to get down before I conceived. didn't happen). Well today I was down to 192 and they freaked out about that to which I just figured it was because I had been sick and my endo was gone. Well then they told me I have starvation ketosis because I had extremely high level of ketones in my urine. They said all my other vitals looked good and that starvation ketosis is basically like malnutrition and its probably because I haven't been able to eat enough due to feeling sick. They told me my baby had a strong heartbeat and was fine- not to worry because baby will get the first of everything.
    Now, I've gotten home, told my family and they're being SO MEAN about it. Saying how could I possibly be starving if I look like a do (ill attach a photo to prove I'm not a beached whale or anything! geewhiz!) and that they think my doctor is blowing this out of proportion. It hurts to feel like they aren't taking this serious and even making fun of me in the process. THEN I made the mistake of googling the situation and it said that high levels of ketones CAN hurt the baby- even lowering their IQ. I know this sounds ridiculous but this is something that really bothers me because my husband is a Dr. of Mechanical Engineering and in Mensa and I feel like I'm carrying this baby that has a chance to really make an impact and I'm screwing it up! I just want to know why the doctor didn't tell me that this situation is dangerous to baby. I just feel so alone and was hoping there is someone out there that may know more info on this on a personal level.

    You are stunning and I don't think it's possible you weight anywhere near 192 lbs.? (Confused.) You don't look like it at ALL; you look amazing! Your family must not understand the serious nature of what you told them. I hope you can find some support from at least one or two of them. Anyone with a medical background in your family or group of friends who you can talk to? Perhaps they just need to be more educated about it. You could print out information for them to read. I'd tell them they hurt my feelings, and explain why, and give them the information. Glad you're getting good medical care now. Don't worry about those who aren't supportive, hon. Focus on your health and your baby.

Extreme Gestational Starvation Ketoacidosis: Case Report And Review Of Pathophysiology

A case of severe starvation ketoacidosis developing during pregnancy is presented. The insulinopenic/insulinresistant state found during fasting in late gestation predisposes to ketosis. Superimposition of stress hormones, which further augment lipolysis, exacerbates the degree of ketoacidosis. In our patient, gestational diabetes, twin pregnancies, preterm labor, and occult infection were factors that contributed to severe starvation ketoacidosis. Diagnosis was delayed because starvation ketosis is not generally considered to be a cause of severe acidosis, and because the anion gap was not elevated. Improved understanding of the complex fuel metabolism during pregnancy should aid in prevention, early recognition, and appropriate therapy of this condition. 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.

Starvation Ketoacidosis In Pregnancy.

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. Ketoacidosis is likely to have important implications for fetal survival as ketoacidosis in women with type 1 diabetes mellitus is associated with intrauterine death. This article features four cases of women with vomiting in the third trimester of pregnancy associated with a severe metabolic acidosis. The mechanism underlying ketogenesis, the evidence for accelerated ketogenesis in pregnancy and other similar published cases are reviewed. A proposed strategy for management of these women is presented. Continue reading >>
