What Is Keto Flu & How To Help!

Symptoms of Keto Flu: Keto flu is the name given to a set of symptoms some people experience when first starting keto. It’s not actually a flu and definitely not contagious, but it can become quite tiring. Keto flu symptoms are very similar to that of your regular flu and can last anywhere from a day to a few weeks! You may experience fatigue headaches cough sniffles irritability nausea Many people who experience these symptoms in the beginning of their ketogenic diet will believe the diet is to blame and carbs are good after all. Ironically, seeing these symptoms is a sign that you were very dependent on carbohydrates! Your body is going through withdrawal from sugar and carby foods.

In addition, when we eat sugar, our brain sends messages for the release of dopamine, the “feel good” hormone. After some time, the release of dopamine is more or less regulated and less is sent out each time we eat sugar. Continue reading >>

    To my knowledge this has been demonstrated in mice. Mice that were not necessarily fed a healthy diet and that are mice and not as likely to eat that kind of diet like humans are in nature, for the past hundred thousand years.
    However of all the studies in humans, while there have been some negative ones showing arterial stiffness or other issues, there have been none, that I know of, showing the diet to cause insulin resistance and several that showed increased insulin sensitivity.
    I have read that while in ketosis one will develop insulin resistance but it is a temporary and necessary response by your body to ensure that your brain gets enough glucose and, most importantly, that this resistance is completely reversible and sensitivity will go back up if/when one started eating carbs again.

    Does anyone know? Studies? Science?

    Blood glucose tracking can give a good sense of changing insulin resistance. If over time on the diet your fasted bg is falling and/or your post prandial bg rise to a particular food diminishes then you are likely becoming more insulin sensitive. Fasting should help.

  3. VLC.MD

    A foundational principle of low carb diets is that they lower insulin resistance in humans.

Is Keto Dieting Safe?

Yes, for most people, the keto diet is safe. Of course, as with any major change in diet or exercise, you should consult with your doctor so that he or she can help you understand whether this diet is safe for YOU. And especially if you are a Type 1 diabetic, I would be concerned about you starting keto without being under close supervision by a doctor because you could go into ketoacidosis which is a dangerous condition. (Ketoacidosis is different than ketosis, which is a safe metabolic condition that your body enters when you cut carbs and raise your fat levels. It’s important not to confuse the two because while ketoacidosis is very dangerous, ketosis is healthy and is actually the goal for most people on the keto diet.) But for most people, the keto diet is a safe way to lose weight, increase energy, improve sleep, help with many autoimmune conditions, and the list goes on and on. The key to getting these benefits, though, is following the basics of keto - which means low carb, moderate protein, and high fat. This is what sets keto apart from many other low carb diets that often promote high protein. On the keto diet, you should start out eating less than 20 net carbs per day Continue reading >>

    * why k is given in DKA?

    HI FORUM MEMBERS...
    please clear this doubt..

    in diabetic ketoacidosis,we have hyperkalemia,(but depleted intracellular k)
    why do we give potassium along with fluids n insulin in the management??
    please explain....

  2. bdj - 02/28/08 01:44

    because this is pseudohyperkalemia what is happening is that H+ ions are driving K+ outside of the cell, as soon as you start correcting the acidosis K+ will go back in and then you're in trouble if you don't add K+. Also K+ should be added 50/50 as KCL/K2PO4 because you will also consume PO- and if you don't replace it you are left with...no ATP

Ideally, you haven't jumped into the ketogenic diet overnight and have you slowly lowered your carbs and added fats and were gentle on your body. Click here to watch my video about how to ease into a Ketogenic lifestyle: https://youtu.be/SQmnatHONGE But since I know a lot of us will not follow the advice because we're little rebels and we want to do things our way, here is a piece of advice for you to follow to avoid flu symptoms caused by glycogen depletion in the blood stream: - Take 2 potassium supplement pills immediately after you start feeling tired, dizzy or your heart starts slowing down or pounding too fast. - Draw a hot bath and add a few cups (or a whole bag) of Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulfate). - Grind 5 extra Potassium pills and throw them into the bath tub (these pills are very weak only 99mg when the daily recommendation for potassium by our government is 4,700... not sure if our government studied nutrition or not). - Sprinkle some magnesium onto your upper arms and rub thoroughly while your bath is drawing. - Add 40 drops of Trace Minerals onto an 8oz glass of water and drink it. This will stop your keto flu symptoms in 10 minutes or less. Trust me, I've gone through several keto flus and I've had my share of trouble. *I'm not a doctor and this is not medical advice, this is just little me sharing my world with you.
