Nicolas, selected from petMD Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Dogs-Diabetes-S... Is your dog consuming lots of water...more than you think is normal? Eating too much? Frequently urinating? He might have diabetes. Sugar diabetes, more specifically known as canine diabetes, is a common disease to dogs. It is a hormonal disorder that affects dogs of ages 5 to 9. Some species like German Shepherd, Poodles, Keeshonden and Golden Retrievers register the highest incidence of this disease. Obese dogs also stand a greater risk of being diabetic. The ratio of female to male infected with the disease is 3:1. This book addresses the most conspicuous symptoms of diabetes in dogs, the main causes, and how to effectively treat it.

Normal Blood Glucose Levels In Dogs

Normal blood glucose levels in dogs are actually somewhat similar to those in humans. Knowing a dog's blood glucose levels becomes important when an owner suspects or is treating a dog for diabetes. Blood Glucose in Dogs Healthy dogs have normal blood glucose levels, which tend to range from 75 to 120 milligrams per deciliter of blood. Dogs that have levels of 80 milligrams per deciliter or lower are likely to develop hypoglycemia. When reaching a level of 60 milligrams per deciliter or lower, a dog may go into shock, coma or even be at risk for death. On the other end of the spectrum, dogs that have blood sugar levels of 180 milligrams per deciliter on a consistent basis tend to need diabetic treatment as well. Maintaining normal blood glucose levels in dogs with either high or low blood sugar can be difficult, but is essential for extending the life of the pet. Suspecting Low or High Blood Sugar Most owners will first identify symptoms of low or high blood sugar in their dogs before they're able to actually test the dog's blood. A dog may be experiencing higher or lower blood sugar than normal if he exhibits the following: Excessive thirst Increased urination Loss of energy Exces Continue reading >>

    Intermediate Fasting and Maintaining Ketosis

    I ran across an interesting post and response over on Peter Attia's blog:
    "lorraine July 22, 2012
    Doc, not sure where to ask this, but this seems as good a place as any. I read somewhere along the way that you’ve done some self-experimentation with IF. I’ve been doing the same, but limited to eating “within a window”. I usually wait 16-17 hours after last meal to start the new day’s eating. and eat two meals within that 7 or 8 hours. I really like eating this way, but I have found that it kicks me out of ketosis. Not so if I do fasted exercise. It seems to me, theoretically anyway, that if I’m running on ketones I shouldn’t have to turn on too much gluconeogenesis, but it doesn’t appear to be working out that way. I get kicked out of ketosis especially in the morning of the fast. Have you experienced anything like this? At least with me, it seems I need to pick one or the other. Thanks for any input.
    Peter Attia July 22, 2012
    You’re spot on. IF makes a steady-state of ketosis almost impossible, because of the bolus of protein in one meal. I’ll detail all of this when I get the post (or short series, more likely) on this topic."
    Lately, I've been eating one large meal with some snacking or a second light meal per day. I've found I like this. Keeping a ketonic ratio around two, it does result in an intake of protein for me up to around 60-70 grams at one time.
    I haven't noticed high post prandial readings or any significant increase in my morning fasting readings. This leads me to believe I'm maintaining ketosis, but I'm not sure. I guess it boils down to does it simply take maintaining a ketonic ratio to maintain a state of ketosis, or does it also require limiting a maximum protein intake at one time? What exactly, if anything, does our glucose readings say about maintaining ketosis?
    Curious as to what some of you longer term ketogenics have run across. I hate to break down and buy those expensive ketone meter strips, but maybe thats the only way to know for sure.

  2. jim55

    Today begins my third week of if. I haven't had any problem staying in keto when i break a fast. I've done two 41 hour fasts with the other 10 days being 20 hour fasts. I like the 20 hour fasts. It's just like normal eating without breakfast really. Very easy for me to create a caloric deficit without any feelings of depervation. My workouts have been fantastic, i have so much more energy it seems. I read somewhere that the gut has a hormone or something called gerlin (spelling) that causes hunger and fasting over time will silence this. I think it's true as i just don't have big hunger. I don't think it would be as easy if i were not keto addapted. My weight is down somewhere between four and six pounds. Hard to determine exactly as the fasting does cause rather large hydro swings.

  3. blaisjp

    Well this is all very interesting reading. Really. I mean it. I do 24 hour fasts a couple times a month. I find it is most effective combined with a high intensity workout of some kind. I don't really fall out of ketosis, at least not when I check, I just notice that my blood sugar goes up during the fast and exercise and then drops for the the next several days. I presume because glycogen is depleted and needs to rebuild. I know this goes goes against the idea that ketosis only happens when glycogen is depleted i just don't experience this.

High Blood Sugar In Dogs

A healthy dog has a blood glucose level ranging from 75 mg to 120 mg. A dog is diagnosed with high blood sugar, or as hyperglycemic, when it exhibits high blood glucose, or sugar above the normal range. Elevated blood sugar may be temporary, stress-induced, or a sign of a serious underlying disease such as pancreatitis or diabetes mellitus. High blood sugar is more common in female than male dogs, and is more likely to occur in older dogs. Elevated blood glucose can occur transiently fairly often for various reasons (diet, stress, exertion, medications). Moderately elevated glucose can indicate infections (dental, kidneys, bladder), inflammatory conditions (pancreatitis) and hormonal imbalances (Hyperadrenocorticism). However persistent high glucose levels in the blood is diagnostic of Diabetes Mellitus. High blood Sugar causes increased thirst and urination. See a veterinarian promptly if your dogs shows these symptoms. The warning signs for high blood sugar are varied. If your dog’s high blood sugar is temporary or the result of stress or medication, you may not see any symptoms. However, if it is the result of a serious disease, you will likely see some of the following: Wound Continue reading >>

    Exercise and ketosis

    This whole ketosis thing confuses me. It's fairly well documented that exercise forces glucose into muscles. If you are in ketosis, does forcing glucose into muscles through exercise knock you out of ketosis? And it's not like I can 'use up' or 'run out of' glucose because my liver keeps me well-supplied, even eating very low carb...my BG is usually higher after exercise than before.

And it's not like I can 'use up' or 'run out of' glucose because my liver keeps me well-supplied, even eating very low carb...my BG is usually higher after exercise than before. Part of the definition of ketosis is that your cells (including your muscles, brain and heart) switch off insisting on glucose as their primary fuel. They run off ketone bodies and/or free fatty acids instead. So, when in ketosis exercise generally has no effect on blood glucose because glucose is not involved.
    I have on more than on occasion check my blood sugar at 4 hours since eating anything, gone for a 1 or 2 hour workout and tested after it at the exact same level. So, that entire workout was fueled by other than glucose. That is normal for ketosis.
    So, in this state, exercise no longer "forces glucose into muscles" because they have switched to alternative fuels.
    No, exercise cannot knock you out of ketosis. The only thing which can do that is eating too many glucose-producing foods (carbs or proteins). Also, a prerequisite to achieving ketosis is depleting the glycogen stores in the liver so in most cases this shouldn't be an issue. There shouldn't be any stores significant to cause a spike.

  3. jim55

    My body is in a ketosis state most every day and i,m sure i still burn glucose stores when exercising. Because the body coverts protien to glucose i always have some avalable however in much less supply due to my low carb diet. When i do cardio i can even feel when my body makes the switch. This is true also when i lift. If the body completly drained itself of glucose ones bood glucose reading would be 0.

TIP 8 - FEED YOUR DOG RAW BONES Perhaps you have heard that there are several different types of bones you should never feed your dog. There are a few, but typically any bone in raw form is going to be safe for your dog. Much to most owner's amazement and initial disbelief this includes chicken bones, turkey bones, lamb bones and even oxtails, all fed in a natural raw state. In addition whole fish, including the head, can also be fed to dogs on raw food diets. These bones are known as the soft bones and the dog will actually chew and eat the bone, bone marrow and the attached meat. The only bones to avoid are those that that break into shards. This only happens when they have had their nutrients depleted from heat. article: http://julieannamos.hubpages.com/hub/...

Diet Tips For A Diabetic Dog

Once a dog is diagnosed with diabetes they usually remain diabetic. While there are feeding and dietary strategies that can help keep their glucose levels low and well-controlled, they will usually require insulin injections lifelong. An excellent diet choice for a diabetic dog is a meat-based high protein food that is moderately fat and carbohydrate restricted. Carbohydrates, if included, should be low glycemic (for example, barley or sorghum). Ideally, at least 30 to 40% of the calories in your diabetic dog's food would come from protein and less than 30% of calories would come from fat and carbohydrates each. Further dietary fat restriction may be necessary if your diabetic dog has pancreatitis or blood fat elevations. Options to consider include Nature's Variety Instinct, Wysong, and Halo. Several studies indicate that high or moderately high–fiber diets may help some diabetics by minimizing their post–eating blood sugar fluctuations. While this is true for SOME dogs, a clear clinical benefit has not been shown for the majority of diabetic dogs. Sometimes high fiber diets will cause inappropriate weight loss (in a thin diabetic) and should be avoided. High fiber diets may a Continue reading >>

    A user's comment in response to this article over on MarksDailyApple:
    The effects of water and glycogen weight loss on low carb diets are well-documented. Years ago, I experimented with the Ultimate Diet 2.0. After 4 days of 1,000 calories, I would drop to 132 lbs. After my carb-up, which was literally 1,000g of carbohydrate in 30 hours, I was back up to 145 lbs. I would cycle 13 POUNDS of water and gylcogen weight per week – Thursday night was my lowest point and Saturday night was my highest point. That was roughly 10% of my total body weight fluctuating in 48 hours! Let’s put that into perspective.
    If I were to drastically cut carbohydrate and expend lots of water weight in a mere 2 days like I did on the UD2, what do you think would happen to my chin-ups and pull-ups? I could do more chin-ups and pull-ups after the depletion stage than I could after carbing up – even though I was considerably stronger with my glycogen stores full. Why? Because my body weight dropped substantially in a very short period of time. I had to pull a lot less weight up to the bar, and that more than made up for how much weaker I felt.
    Ketogenic diets are notorious for raising adrenaline and cortisol levels because of the inherent stress they place on the human body. Prolonged ketosis was only ever experienced during starvation in terms of our evolution. Calorie-replete ketogenic diets (the likes of which Jimmy Moore promote) are a new fad diet – they have never before been detected in traditional societies. They simply did not exist until the past few decades and are the very anthesis of “Paleolithic.” When you force your body into a state of ketosis, you are tricking the body into thinking it is starving, and that raises adrenaline and cortisol inherently. This leads (in the SHORT TERM) to increased alertness and an increased ability to push yourself harder. Your life may depend on it, as far as your body is concerned! Could the people simply sprint faster because they were not only chock full of adrenaline, but because they (like me) had 10% less body weight to carry around? They basically removed a weighted vest from their bodies, then gave themselves an epinepherine injection. I guess so they could move faster!
    But what does longterm ketosis do? Ketosis exists for one reason evolutionary-speaking: to help your muscles, brain, vital organs and connective tissue waste away more slowly when you’re starving to death by supplementing precious, precious glucose with ketones. It is up to the individual whether or not they want to subsist on a diet that elevates stress hormones and lowers anabolic hormones, starves their symbiotic gut bacterira, purges their muscles of precious glycogen, lowers their body temperature and is the very definition of a “Neolithic” invention. For me, it is a huge no-no. Could weeks or months on a ketogenic diet for a person with so much fat mass their body could never confuse itself with starvation be OK? Maybe. For them, it could even be beneficial. For anyone healthy, active and lean, in my opinion it is a huge mistake. The body can adapt to almost any situation, and it is no big surprise to me people who initially go on ketogenic diets feel great – they’re giving themselves mini adrenaline shots. But that to me is foreboding. It is a warning from the body, not an invitation.
    Thoughts? Agree, disagree, TL;DR?

  2. anbeav

    Ketosis exists for one reason, provide energy for the brain. This rest is not worth my time to elaborate on why it's untrue and moreover just because it doesn't work for this guy doesn't mean it's not a valid way of eating. I've never been anything but healthy, active and lean and seem to be thriving on keto. I have no idea why people on keto waste time and energy reading crap like this.
