What Happens If You Either Eat Only Carbs Or Only Fat (and You Somehow Get Enough Vitamins And Minerals)?

Supplements can’t compete with whole foods. To prevent all the major diseases, you need fruits (especially berries), veggies, beans, nuts and seeds, and to avoid salt, oils and sugar (SOS). You do need supplements if you’re a vegan (no animal products), but B12, Vitamin D and DHA/EPA (in the form of algae oil) should be enough. (I like Joel Furhman’s multi-vitamin and his DHA/EPA oil.) With a plant-rich diet, you’re likely to be among the healthiest people on the planet, assuming you avoid most packaged foods, fried foods, junk foods, etc. Of the two options, all fats would be the worst, since you’d be lacking in fiber and all the nutrients that veggies and fruits bring to you. Your body would be wide open for attack, your immune system very weak. But there’s no reason to ever starve yourself of healthful foods. If it’s for weight loss purposes, keep in mind that vegans have been shown to be the thinnest of all cohorts. You can find delicious recipes at Vegan Recipes - Oh She Glows and Plant Based Dietitian and by Googling “nutrient dense plant-rich recipes.” Continue reading >>

    Cervical cancer has a characteristic smell due to the presence of dibutyl phtalate, and other volatile organic compounds.
    In a diagnostic test trial a Beagle dog was trained to recognize cervical cancer odor. He was able to detect and discriminate cancer and non cancer odors with a sensitivity of 96,5% [95% CI 90,51 -100] a specificity of 99,55% [95% CI 98,8 - 100] and a positive predictive value of 96,36% [95% IC 90,51 - 100].
    There are other reports about dogs ability to sniff out breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer and bladder cancer (this last one with a sensibility of 41%), narcolepsy, migraines and hypoglycemia .

    6 Medical Conditions That Dogs Can Sniff Out

    Fetor hepaticus , symptomatic of portal hypertension.
    Uremic fetor , symptomatic of chronic kidney disease.
    Bad breath, could be caused by not brushing, as well as “disorders in the nose , sinuses , throat , lungs , esophagus , or stomach ”. Diabetic ketoacidosis can give one a fruity/acetone smelling breath, too.

    Body odor, commonly harmless, could be caused by certain types of food, microbes on the skin, gland secretions, getting sprayed by a skunk, etc. Metabolic disorders can cause one to smell odd; people who can’t process an amino acid called phenylalanine smell musty, and those with trimethylaminuria smell fishy.
    And from a rather humourously written paper:
    Infectious diseases were known by their characteristics odors--scrofula as smelling like stale beer; typhoid, like freshly baked brown bread; rubella, like plucked feathers; and diphtheria, as "sweetish." Anosmics might be banned from medical school.

    What does Candida smell like--a "heavy sweetness"? Darier's disease in poor control--"organic"? Pseudomonal infections--"foul and biting"? And are not our patients with noninfected eczematous dermatitis distinct for lacking any peculiar odor, do they not actually smell "dry"?

    Scratch and sniff. The dynamic duo.

    There are numerous bad stinks I have come across, but the one that made me almost vomit was a patient with gastrocolic fistula. In this disease, the large intestine somehow gets connected to the stomach, so the fecal material refluxes into stomach and the patient has poo stink breath.

What's An Unforgettable Statement That Your Boss Told You?

I sucked at my work. I failed to complete most tasks on time. My peers would joke about how me to sticking to a deadline was akin to a politician living up to his word. I would put in 10 — 12 hours each day. But I never moved forward. One day, my boss emailed me asking for a list of tasks I perform during that day. I freaked out. Surely I was going to lose my job. I sent him my list after 3 days — after all, I had to live up to my reputation of missing deadlines. I didn’t sleep that night. The next day, my boss called me into his cabin. This is it, I thought. I’m gonna get fired for the first time in my life. I should start preparing for the handover process. But that didn’t happen. He made me sit down and offered a glass of water. Then he said, “Vishal, I noticed you cannot perform important tasks. You do a hundred things, but I can’t see any results.” “I try sir, but I keep getting burdened with additional work,” I said. Beads of sweat formed on my brow despite the cool temperature in his cabin. “Team members tell me their work is urgent. I know I get distracted. But I want to help everyone. When I try to say ‘no’, it doesn’t work. Yesterday Nishant sc Continue reading >>

    (edit: it's worth pointing out that "Ketosis " on it's own is not a bad thing, but Diabetic ketoacidosis is. I assume this is the point of the question)
    Diabetic Ketoacidosis comes from High (hyper) Blood Sugar not Low (Hypo). They could happen together, if you had high blood sugar for too long, the Ketoacidosis happened then you over treated the high and it went low. In this case you'd have 2 separate problems. Hypoglaycemia and Ketoacidosis. Low blood sugar will make you pass out and go into a coma eventually. Ketoacidosis is very painful and horrible to be part of. But I wouldn't say they increase each others danger very much.

    I'm not a doctor, but from what I know of diabetic conditions, both of these can be dangerous, and especially if they occur together (especially since ketosis would probably indicate serious hypoglycemia).

What Does A Doctor Do When A Patient Comes In For An Exam And Smells Really Bad?

I was a doctor in China, and grew up in a hospital because my father is a doctor too. (in the old days, the government run organizations usually have apartments for their employees, :) don't know if it's a good part of this communist country, at least you don't need to buy a house and maintain it, just kidding) So part of my childhood is weird compared to other kids.I usually did my homework with my father’s nurse in a small room next to my father’s office. I saw many things, people came here in a very severe health situation, people died here leaving their crying families alone. The most in my memory is crying, you can hear that everywhere in a hospital. About smell, I don't think they have time to think about this. Then, as a doctor, I don't care about that too. When I pick my friends or I teach my kids, an important thing is to “respect others”, that means I want them to be “appropriate” in normal life ( I don't know if I use this word correctly, English is not my native language) including a well dress style and being clean. But, a patient, not “normal”, sometimes they can't take a shower because they are very sick, sometimes they forgot taking a shower because Continue reading >>

    Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a life-threatening condition that develops when cells in the body are unable to get the sugar (glucose) they need for energy because there is not enough insulin. When the sugar cannot get into the cells, it stays in the blood. The kidneys filter some of the sugar from the blood and remove it from the body through urine.
