Could A Hangover Cause Ketosis (sweet Taste In The Back Of The Throat)?

There will be I'm sure very technical answers to this question. Ketosis is merely the breakdown of fats (or rather fatty acids) releasing ketones and is common for people who are losing weight. You might mean ketoacidosis which is a very serious condition where there isn't enough insulin to use the sugar carried in the blood and the body sees this as starvation and tries to release sugars from fat. So many ketones are produced that blood chemistry is affected, blood sugar levels increase dramatically and you become ill very quickly. Symptoms include sickness, dehydration, deep breathing, confusion and coma that can lead to death. The sweet acetone breath is also a symptom but usually seen in combination with others. If you have high blood sugar get tested but on it's own sweet breath is not a symptom of diabetes. Continue reading >>

    Hey everyone!
    After being paleo for 2 years I decided that going keto with super high fat and low carbs might resolve some issues still lingering around for me. I have ben following Dave's ketosis recommendations, yet experience some weird side effects.
    I am only a week and a half in, and I know that the early stages of keto can cause some funky stuff for people. But recently my lips, throat and tongue become SUPER itchy when I eat. My lips swell up and feel really tingly, and the roof of my mouth itches all the time. Along with that, I have dry mouth and low energy.
    Anyone know what all of this could be due to?? Especially the mouth thing. I know energy levels can be due to a lack in potassium, magnesium, electrolytes or amino acids. But I have no idea what could be causing this weird mouth stuff

    a lack of mucus production perhaps ?

    That is definitely interesting! I am staying super low carb. Maybe I should increase it a little.

Ketosis Vs. Ketoacidosis (dka): What Is The Difference?

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 getting clear, factual information about your health. Well, there are a lot of individuals and companies which all have their own goals and motivations. Where do these misperceptions come from? Here’s the thing though … that is all misinformation. You then Googled something like, "low carb dangerous" and found a list of link-bait articles informing you that low-carb is a ketogenic diet, and ketosis is a dangerous metabolic state which can be fatal. And then maybe someone said something to you like, "What are you thinking? Low-carb is a dangerous diet." If you are thinking about starting a low-carb diet, maybe you have mentioned it to some of your family or friends. By the time you finish reading this article, you will understand why lo Continue reading >>

    I'm simply trying to get a feel for what things are to come. What it feels like, how long it lasts, any tips?

    Ketosis is a state that your body will stay in as long as you keep your carbs low enough. 2 weeks, 2 years, for life. That's up to you.
    For me, it has normalized my relationship with food. I don't binge on anything anymore and I don't have cravings for anything. I eat food for fuel and it stopped being emotional for me. I have a lot more energy than I ever did.
    I did get a little light-headed in the beginning, but that was due to electrolytes. I make sure I have that covered now and haven't felt it since.

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the anabolic Diet. There are many different approaches to carb cycling, but the general idea is that At some points of the week you're going to have a high amount of carbohydrates, and at other points of the week you're going to have a low amount of carbohydrates. Setting up the high carb and low carb splits will vary from one plan to the next. Some people may have very small changes in the amount of carbs they have from day to day. An example of this would be to set up a low carb, medium carb, and high carb day. Let's say 300 grams of carbs on high carb, 250 grams of carbs on your medium carb, and 200 grams of carbs on your no carb day. Another more advanced approach would be to do a High carb, low carb, and no carb day. The way that I like to set this kind of split up is by having a high amount of carbs on my high carb day, which for me would be somewhere around 400 grams, I would have one third or at the most half that amount for low carb day, and then try to get as close to 0 grams as possible on my no carb day and then repeat. An even more advanced approach would be to just cycle between high and no carb days. Or take it even a step further and do high, no, no. I don't really recommend having any more than two no carb days in a row. Make sure you don't jump to any extreme carb restrictions. An example of this is doing a 800 calorie diet when you could lose weight and maintain a better body composition with a 1500 calorie diet. Jumping to an extreme will not help you lose weight faster, in fact it'll probably backfire. Also in case you're wondering what kind of food you can eat on your no carb day, some great options are fish, chicken breast, ground turkey, protein shakes, Steak occasionally, and you can also have healthy fat sources like avocados, coconut oil, olive oil. and fatty fish like Salmon. For carbs make sure you are eating good sources of carbs like oats, brown rice, and sweet potatoes and avoid the junk food carbs. You can incorporate one cheat meal on one high carb day in the week, but that's it one cheat meal. You may notice that your strength and energy levels may go down while dieting like this. In fact you may feel like straight up garbage in the beginning. Understand that a lot of people feel this way when creating any kind of a calorie deficit. You're body will take a little while to adapt to using fat for energy instead of carbs. So the first 2 weeks can feel miserable. Give your body some time to adapt. A good idea is to plan your high carb days the day before a heavy lifting day, because this way you have stored glycogen available for your heavy lifts the next day. If you have no idea how many carbs to have on each day, try using a calorie calculator to find your maintenance macros and then add at least 50 grams of carbs to get the number for your high carb day. I'll include a calorie calculator in the description. Once you have your high carb number you should be able to figure out your low carb day. No carb day is obviously no carbs. After doing a carb cycling plan you may need to do some reverse dieting

What Is A Ketogenic Diet?

Alright, here’s what the ketogenic diet (often referred to as “keto”) is and the basics of how to follow it. What is the ketogenic diet? For those who don’t know the ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high fat diet (LCHF) with many health benefits. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. The reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis. When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain. Benefits: Ketogenic diets generally cause massive reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels. This, along with the increased level of ketones provide the numerous cited health benefits. Ketogenic benefits include: Fighting diabetes Epilepsy control Alzheimer’s disease Certain cancers Cognitive performance High blood pressure control Satiety Weight/fat loss Reduced cholesterol levels The most obvious and commonly cited benefits is the decreased insulin levels. This is why fasting becomes a great solution to people’s type 2 diabetes, cushing’s disease and many other metabolic diseases. Fasting as well as the Continue reading >>

    Stages of DKA/Any Personal Experiences?

    After 19.5 years of Type 1 diabetes I should probably know everything about DKA but thankfully up to this point I have avoided any hint of DKA so out of sight, out of mind! I of course know the basics, the danger signs, symptoms etc. but the basic info does not tell you a lot about the progression, stages, etc. so in my mind my takeaways were "don't stay high too long, take your insulin, if you are high stay hydrated,"....good to go right?
    So yesterday around 4 AM my blood sugar started to rocket up after being normal for most of the night. Took a bolus to bring it down and when I woke around 6 my CGM said 250 but tested my blood sugar, it was 190. A little annoyed as my bolus should have brought this down but good enough to continue with my plan so I went for a 30 min run. After exercise it came down to about 150, I was happy so I did not think too much of it.
    Got it the car, ate two pieces of toast, and on my drive to work (45 minutes) my blood sugar started to rocket up! Gave myself a large bolus to bring it down and by the time I got to work it still was climbing higher and higher (over 400). Changed my infusion site (it was leaking so I probably was getting very little insulin), gave myself a bolus with a needle, drank a lot of water and just tried to focus on work. Started to come down very slowly but it was coming down and around 1230 I was down to about 150 around the same time I started feeling physically ill (lots of nausea, threw up once, lethargic) and that is when it hit me, could it be DKA? Since my blood sugar was not too bad I did not feel I was in immediate danger but I read that DKA can change your blood chemistry so I was a little worried about any cascading effects. My body felt awful, I just threw up, my stomach was upset, I didn't feel like eating. I forced myself to eat my modest lunch and closely monitored but still didn't feel good for most of the day and I left work about an hour early.
    I rode it out and I was fine but the experience just got me thinking. Has anyone ever experienced DKA? How fast did it come on? Any noticeable stages? Just curious about any personal experiences. Read that DKA can happen fast but when you are possibly experiencing it, it still surprised me at the speed of it. Don't know if I was actually experiencing DKA but it certainly seems plausible! Thoughts?

  2. Nicoletti

    Sorry, no personal experience here, but vomiting can be an early sign. And yes, DKA will change your blood chemistry to the point of metabolic acidosis. Too much acidosis is not compatible with life -- very serious stuff!
    Do you have urine keto strips? You can check ketones with them if your blood sugar is high.

    I've been on the verge twice in my 50 years of D. The first time was when I was about 16 or so and I'd had the flu. One of those horrible ones making the rounds that was killing some of the elderly that caught it. I was vomiting for 3 days and on day 3 it started getting worse, rather than better (keep in mind that this was in the 70s, so horrible insulins and no home testing) so my Mom took me to the hospital. They said my blood chemistry was just starting to go "off". The second time was when I had peritonitis (so got really sick, really fast) and went to hospital in the morning. Again, this was in the days before lantus. I took my morning shot of N, and went to the ER. By midnight they had given me no insulin, hadn't tested my blood sugar in 6 hours (the nurse was refusing to) and so I called home to get my insulin. The next morning a young resident cheerfully told me that I had "been on the verge of DKA, but we saved you!!!!". I informed her that they were the ones that had pushed me there.
    As far as for myself, I know coming close I have always been pretty ill before I got close to the edge. So if you are taking a reasonable amount of insulin and still feel ok, I suspect that DKA is the last thing you need to worry about. Especially if you can keep fluids down along with your bg.
    I really doubt if you were experiencing DKA. Don't forget, the K stands for Keto (acidosis). So you have to have rampaging ketones that acidify your blood. It's not a single day process, especially with insulin on board.
