Ketosis – What is Ketosis, Effects of Ketosis and … – Diabetes.co.uk diabetes.co.uk
High levels of ketosis can be serious High levels of ketosis can be serious
Ketosis is a state the body may find itself in either as a result of raised blood glucose levels or as a part of low carb dieting.
Low levels of ketosis is perfectly normal.
However, high levels of ketosis in the short term can be serious and the long term effects of regular moderate ketosis are only partially known at the moment.
What is ketosis?
Ketosis is a state the body goes into if it needs to break down body fat for energy. The state is marked by raised levels of ketones in the blood which can be used by the body as fuel.
Ketones which are not used for fuel are excreted out of the body via the kidneys and the urine.
When does ketosis occur?
Ketosis will take place when the body needs energy and there is not sufficient glucose available for the body.
This can typically happen when the body is lacking insulin and blood glucose levels become high.
Other causes can be the result of being on a low carb diet.
A low level of carbohydrate will lead to low levels of insulin, and therefore the body will produce ketones which do not rely on insulin to get into and fuel the body’s cells.
A further cause of ketosis, less relevant to people with diabetes, is a result of excessive alcohol consumption.

“…The heavier you are, the greater the risk you will develop type 2 diabetes. Whereas type 1 diabetes is a disease of insulin deficiency, type 2 diabetes typically develops because the body is insulin resistant and requires more insulin than normal. Our body’s cells are fueled by glucose, and insulin acts as a key that allows glucose from the blood to enter our cells. If the pancreas does not produce insulin (as in type 1 diabetes), or the body’s cells no longer respond to insulin (as in type 2 diabetes), glucose remains in the blood instead of being used by the cells, resulting in abnormally high blood glucose, which is harmful to the body….”

Good vs. Bad Carbohydrates
By Diana Rodriguez | Medically reviewed by Lindsey Marcellin, MD, MPH everydayhealth.com
“…The most important simple carbohydrates to limit in your diet include:
White rice, white bread, and white pasta
Potatoes (which are technically a complex carb, but act more like simple carbs in the body)
Pastries and desserts
Meyerowitz says that you can enjoy simple carbohydrates on occasion, you just don’t want them to be your primary sources of carbs. And within the simple carb category, there are better choices — a baked potato, white rice, and regular pasta — than others — chips, cakes, pies, and cookies….
The glycemic index of a food basically tells you how quickly and how high your blood sugar will rise after eating the carbohydrate contained in that food, as compared to eating pure sugar. Lower glycemic index foods are healthier for your body, and you will tend to feel full longer after eating them. Most, but not all, complex carbs fall into the low glycemic index category….”

12 Ways To Never Get Diabetes-
These simple steps may be all it takes to stay healthy
By THE EDITORS OF PREVENTION.COM DECEMBER 29, 2011 prevention.com
Nearly 25% of Americans are thought to have prediabetes—a condition of slightly elevated blood sugar levels that often develops into diabetes within 10 years—but only 4% of people know it. What’s worse, of those who are aware, less than half really tried to reduce their risk by losing weight, eating less, and exercising more. These are just a few of the good-for-you habits that can reverse prediabetes and ensure you never get the real thing, which can mean a lifetime of drugs and blood sugar monitoring, an increased risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other scary health threats.

TOP 10 WAYS TO PREVENT DIABETES, Diabetes foods, Type 2 Diabetes, Prevent Type 2 Diabetes, symptoms of Diabetes
“Diabetes can be dangerous, but being more active and making appropriate food choices can significantly delay or even prevent diabetes from developing.”
Here are the top 10 diabetic diet tips :
Diabetes Tip 01: You don’t have to abandon foods you love. Just cut down on portion size and eat slowly. It takes 20 minutes for your stomach to send a signal to your brain that you’re full.
Diabetes Tip 2: Turn off the television and walk with a friend.
Diabetes Tip 3: When eating out, choose steamed veggies or broiled entrees instead of fried foods and cream sauces.
Diabetes Tip 04: Drink water with your meals. Water will fill you up faster and prevent you from overeating.
Diabetes Tip 05: Read food labels. Choose foods with unsaturated fat, and little or no added sugar or salt.
Diabetes Tip 06: Try getting at least one new fruit or vegetable every time you shop for groceries.
Diabetes Tip 07. Every step counts. Take a 10-minute walking break every day. Walking is great exercise and can help relieve stress, too!
Diabetes Tip 08: Eat a variety of whole grains such as 100 percent whole wheat bread, brown rice and oats.
Diabetes Tip 09: Know your family history. Your physician can help you determine hereditary factors that could put you at risk for developing diabetes.
Diabetes Tip 10: Lose a few. Shedding at least 10 pounds by eating fewer calories, eating smaller portions and exercising can significantly reduce your risk of developing diabetes.”

More Vaccines Equal More Diabetes
“In the October 22, 1997 Infectious Diseases in Clinical Practice, Classen presented more data further substantiating his findings of a vaccine-diabetes connection. He reported that the incidence of diabetes in Finland was stable in children under 4 years of age until the government made several changes in its childhood vaccination schedule. In 1974, 130,000 children aged 3 months to 4 years were enrolled in a vaccine experimental trial and injected with Hib vaccine or meningococcal vaccine. Then, in 1976, the pertussis vaccine used in Finland was made stronger by adding a second strain of bacteria.

Know your blood glucose target range
Wow, what a tremendous response to the new diabetes blog. You are showing the huge impact diabetes has on an individual’s life, family, community, and society as a whole. …
This week I would like to talk about the blood glucose target range. What should it be? A normal fasting blood glucose target range for an individual without diabetes is 70-100 mg/dL (3.9-5.6 mmol/L). The American Diabetes Association recommends a fasting plasma glucose level of 70–130 mg/dL (3.9-7.2 mmol/L) and after meals less than 180 mg/dL (10 mmol/L). ..
Checking Your Blood Glucose diabetes.org
‘..What Are the Target Ranges?
Blood glucose targets are individualized based on:
duration of diabetes
known CVD or advanced microvascular complications
individual patient considerations.
The American Diabetes Association suggests the following targets for most nonpregnant adults with diabetes. More or less stringent glycemic goals may be appropriate for each individual.
A1C may also be reported as eAG: 154 mg/dl
Before a meal (preprandial plasma glucose): 80–130 mg/dl
1-2 hours after beginning of the meal (Postprandial plasma glucose)*: Less than 180 mg/dl
What does the test result mean?
High levels of glucose most frequently indicate diabetes, but many other diseases and conditions can also cause elevated blood glucose.
In a person with signs and symptoms of diabetes or hyperglycemia, a non-fasting glucose level (random blood sample) that is equal to or greater than 200 mg/dL (11.1 mmol/L) indicates diabetes.
The following information summarizes the meaning of other test results…”
Checking Your Blood Glucose diabetes.org
“..What Do My Results Mean?
When you finish the blood glucose check, write down your results and review them to see how food, activity and stress affect your blood glucose. Take a close look at your blood glucose record to see if your level is too high or too low several days in a row at about the same time. If the same thing keeps happening, it might be time to change your plan. Work with your doctor or diabetes educator to learn what your results mean for you. This takes time. Ask your doctor or nurse if you should report results out of a certain range at once by phone..”

Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) blood test medlineplus.gov
“..AST is an enzyme found in high levels in the liver, heart, and muscles. It is also found in lesser amounts in other tissues. An enzyme is a protein that causes a specific chemical change in the body.
This test is mainly done along with other tests (such as ALT, ALP, and bilirubin) to diagnose and monitor liver disease…”
ALP: The Test | Alkaline Phosphatase – Lab Tests Online labtestsonline.org
“..How is it used?
The alkaline phosphatase test (ALP) is used to help detect liver disease or bone disorders.
In conditions affecting the liver, damaged liver cells release increased amounts of ALP into the blood. This test is often used to detect blocked bile ducts because ALP is especially high in the edges of cells that join to form bile ducts. If one or more of them are obstructed, for example by a tumor, then blood levels of ALP will often be high.
Any condition that affects bone growth or causes increased activity of bone cells can affect ALP levels in the blood. An ALP test may be used, for example, to detect cancers that have spread to the bones or to help diagnose Paget’s disease, a condition that causes malformed bones. This test may also sometimes be used to monitor treatment of Paget’s disease or other bone conditions, such as vitamin D deficiency.

What Is a Creatinine Blood Test? healthline.com
“..Creatinine is measured in milligrams per deciliter of blood (mg/dL). People who are more muscular tend to have higher creatinine levels. Results may also vary depending on age and gender.
In general, however, normal creatinine levels range from 0.7 to 1.3 mg/dL in men and 0.6 to 1.1 mg/dL in women.
High serum creatinine levels in the blood indicate that the kidneys aren’t functioning properly.
Your serum creatinine levels may be slightly elevated or higher than normal due to:
a blocked urinary tract
a high-protein diet..”
Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) Test healthline.com
“…The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs located on each side of the spine. They’re responsible for filtering out of the blood waste products, excess water, and other impurities. These important organs also control the pH, salt levels, and potassium levels in the body. The kidneys even produce hormones that manage red blood cell production and regulate blood pressure.
A blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test is used to determine how well your kidneys are working. It does this by measuring the amount of urea nitrogen in the blood. Urea nitrogen is a waste product that’s created in the liver when the body breaks down proteins. Normally, the kidneys filter out this waste, and urinating removes it from the body. ..”

Blood Urea Nitrogen – Lab Tests Online labtestsonline.org
“..3. What is a BUN/Creatinine ratio?
Occasionally, a health practitioner will look at the ratio between a person’s BUN and blood creatinine to help determine what is causing these concentrations to be higher than normal. The ratio of BUN to creatinine is usually between 10:1 and 20:1. An increased ratio may be due to a condition that causes a decrease in the flow of blood to the kidneys, such as congestive heart failure or dehydration. It may also be seen with increased protein, from gastrointestinal bleeding, or increased protein in the diet. The ratio may be decreased with liver disease (due to decrease in the formation of urea) and malnutrition…”
How do you lower a high protein-creatinine ratio and a high kidney BUN? reference.com
“..Eating a diet that contains sufficient vegetables, fruits, herbal tea and spices can aid in lowering a high protein-creatinine ratio and a high kidney blood urea nitrogen, claims Kidney Healthy Web. Cutting down on meat and alcohol helps in reducing blood urea nitrogen levels, states Kidney Cares Community…
Poor kidney filtration results in high creatinine and urea levels in the blood, but the consumption of certain fruits, such as cranberries, kiwi fruit or blueberries, can improve the kidney function and filtration rate, explains Kidney Healthy Web. Vegetables such as cucumbers, onions and white red bell peppers have antioxidant properties that protect the kidney from further damage and lead to excretion of more creatinine and urea in the form of urine.
A high intake of base-forming foods, such as Chinese cabbage, potatoes and carrots, can aid in lowering blood urea nitrogen, states Kidney Cares Community. These foods alkalize urine and reduce the risks of high urea nitrogen. A patient suffering from this condition should consume a lot of water, which triggers the production of urine, removing creatinine and urea nitrogen.
High-purine foods, such as sea food, animal giblets, lentils, peanuts and spinach, can lead to the deposition of urea nitrogen into the bloodstream, so a patient with high urea nitrogen should limit the consumption of these foods, notes Kidney Cares Community.”

Calcium: The Test | Calcium Test: Total Calcium … – Lab Tests Online labtestsonline.org
“..What does the test result mean?
Calcium Reference Range
Blood calcium levels do not indicate levels of bone calcium but rather how much calcium is circulating in the blood.
Calcium absorption, use, and excretion are regulated and stabilized by a feedback loop involving PTH and vitamin D. Conditions and diseases that disrupt calcium regulation can cause inappropriate acute or chronic elevations or decreases in calcium and lead to symptoms of hypercalcemia or hypocalcemia.
In most cases, total calcium is measured because the test is more easily performed than the ionized calcium test and requires no special handling of the blood sample. Total calcium is usually a good reflection of free calcium since the free and bound forms are typically each about half of the total. However, because about half of the calcium in blood is bound to protein, total calcium test results can be affected by high or low levels of protein. In such cases, it is more useful to measure free calcium directly using an ionized calcium test…”
Normal Blood Calcium Levels Decrease as We Get Older .parathyroid.com/
“The amount of calcium in the blood changes as we mature. The highest blood calcium levels are seen in teenagers and young adults. By age 35 or 40, the blood calcium should be “in the 9’s” almost all of the time. Most labs do not show normal calcium ranges according to the patients age. This causes delays in the diagnosis of hyperparathyroidism. ..”

“…If the problem is bad enough, they are told to take medication to give the body insulin. The problem is, as we saw above, diabetes is a problem with the body’s regulation of insulin, caused by a resistance to insulin and an overproduction to remove toxic amounts of glucose in the bloodstream. Insulin is also dangerous if it is left circulating the the blood. Somehow, treating too much circulating glucose and insulin with more insulin doesn’t seem like the right approach…
It isn’t just keeping blood sugar levels down through insulin control that helps diabetes, but fixing the actual problem causing the diabetes. Addressing just one aspect of the problem (blood sugar or insulin) ignores all the other factors like poor diet, toxins, stress, gut problems, immune issues etc. Instead, this single focuses approach can contribute to the problem, making insulin resistance worse and eventually leading to insulin dependent diabetes when the pancreas shuts down completely. Many doctors and nutrition experts recommend the typical 6-11 servings of complex carbs from whole grain sources daily, suggesting that the fiber helps mitigate insulin response. As I have shown before, 6-11 servings of carbohydrates a day is bad for anyone, but is gasoline on a fire to anyone with an impaired insulin response.

Naturopathic Diagnosis and Treatment of Diabetes and Prediabetes By Mona Morstein, ND, DHANP .naturopathic.org
“…There are several types of diabetes: gestational, whereby a woman becomes diabetic during her pregnancy; Type 1, which occurs both in children and adults due to an auto-immune disease destroying cells in the pancreas; and, Type 2, which is the most common form, occurring in 90-95% of diabetic patients, including pediatric patients. Type 2 diabetes is related to insulin resistance, which means the pancreas is producing insulin but the body cells are no longer sensitive to it, so glucose levels in their blood stay high.
Type 2 diabetes is caused by a number of factors, most of them controllable. There is a genetic association with diabetes, which people cannot change, but if everyone kept the controllable factors well-managed, we still would not be seeing the preponderance of diabetics. The controllable factors include: poor diet, over-eating, nutritional deficiencies, high refined grains and sugars consumption, high saturated fat consumption, lack of exercise, and being overweight/obese. Environmental toxins and hormonal imbalances are also noted for initiating insulin resistance. In the comprehensive visits with patients in which naturopathic physicians specialize, naturopathic physicians will investigate all of these “Obstacles to Cure” to uncover which aspects need to be specifically addressed per individual patient. In most patients many, if not most, of all of the etiologic factors are involved.
The naturopathic physician will then do a thorough physical exam, including basic evaluations as well as those specifically associated with diabetes, like checking the feet for nerve damage. Doctors will do the standard lab tests, checking for cholesterol, liver and kidney function, anemia, and all the blood sugar monitoring labs. Doctors may also do tests to measure vitamin D (necessary for glucose regulation), inflammatory markers, and cardiac risk profiles, including checking for environmental toxemia and thyroid, adrenal, and reproductive hormonal imbalances.

Did you know that if you are proactive with both your diet and exercise, it should only take 3 weeks to reverse your diabetes? With this in mind, you need to have the attitude that you can cure your diabetes. Your attitude will fuel your motivation to modify your diet and exercise regularly. 2. If you been following the news you have probably heard about the Pritikin diet. Research has always concluded that this diet has been beneficial to decrease high blood pressure, lower stress and increase your levels of nitric oxide. However the newest research shows that this diet is also beneficial for treating diabetes. The first part of the diet is eating high fiber whole grain foods. Because fiber flushes your body (detoxifies), you will be able to manage your weight and lower your need for insulin. Look for foods that are high in dietary fiber (3-4 grams per serving). Get 50 g of fiber per day. 3. Another part of the high fiber diet would be to eat many varieties of fruits and vegetables. Vegetables are always the better choice. However, fruits can be eaten regularly (at least twice a day) with this new nutrition plan. You should be eating at least 6-7 fruits and vegetables a day. http://moneysource1.com/waystoreverse….

Diabetes Natural Remedy – 5 Ways To Reverse Diabetes And Get Off Of Insulin!
By Marc Ramirez Posted on April 29, 2015 in Success Stories forksoverknives.com
“…As my A1C levels rose gradually over the years, I tried to improve my health by dieting, exercising more, and cutting carbs. Unfortunately, these strategies did not stop the progression of diabetes. (Later I learned that carbs are not the enemy—fat is.) Eventually, when my doctor told me that I had to begin injecting insulin daily, I felt very frustrated and helpless. I remember asking my doctor if I could ever stop taking the insulin injections. His response was “No.” This really pissed me off. But hey, what did I expect? My family is filled with diabetics, and I am Latino, an ethnicity with an unusually high percentage of diabetics. For years I had witnessed my family’s intense suffering from diabetes, and I saw myself as destined to walk the same path…
I now follow three basic guidelines: I eat no animal products, I eat low-fat foods, and I avoid high-glycemic foods. I enjoy meals like oatmeal with cinnamon and raisins, pasta primavera, bean burritos, veggie subs, veggie burgers, and plenty of fruits and vegetables such as strawberries and sweet potatoes. (Note that this is not a low-carb diet. In fact, it’s mostly complex carbs. Carbs are not the enemy … high-fat foods are! Fat gets in cells and prevents insulin from working properly.)
Off All Medications in Two Months
In less than two months, I was off of all my medications, and I have been med-free for over three years. I am proud to say that I am no longer diabetic. When I began this journey, I weighed 254 pounds. Today I’m at 207 pounds, which is what I weighed in the 7th grade!
I have learned that I had diabetes not because I am Mexican or because my family is predisposed to the disease. It all comes down to my daily food choices. By replacing nutrient-poor foods with highly nutritious ones, my body has responded positively….”
“…Once you tip from pre-diabetes into diabetes, you will be slapped on medication faster than you can say: ‘Coca-Cola.’
But pills don’t treat the underlying disease and rarely stop it progressing.
Anyway, I’m convinced that there are lots of people who, given the opportunity, would rather get healthy through lifestyle changes than resort to a lifetime on drugs.
And here there is some good news. There is a simple way not only to halt the progress of pre-diabetes but, remarkable as it sounds, achieve what until now has been regarded as impossible: actually reversing Type 2 diabetes and returning your blood sugar levels to normal — all in JUST EIGHT WEEKS.
That is not to say that being obese inevitably leads to Type 2 diabetes. You can be overweight without being diabetic, and diabetic without being overweight.
And the real problem seems to be not how much fat you carry, but where it gets deposited…
THIN ON THE OUTSIDE, FAT ON THE INSIDE
While the subcutaneous fat that gathers on your bottom, thighs and arms is relatively harmless (and may even be protective), a far greater danger lies in the hidden fat that wraps itself around your heart, liver and gut.
Because this ‘visceral’ fat lies inside the body, rather than on the surface where you can see it, you can appear to be relatively slim. People like that are known as TOFIs — Thin On The Outside, Fat Inside. I used to be one of them.
In some people the PFT seems to be set high; in others it’s surprisingly low. Take actor Tom Hanks, who experienced persistently high blood sugar levels from the age of 36. In 2013, by which time he was 57, he announced he had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
He’s not someone you’d think of as particularly overweight. But he was probably carrying too much for his particular genetic make-up and eventually reached his PFT. The good news is that whatever your PFT, if you drain the fat out of your liver and pancreas then your blood sugars will begin to fall back towards normal, and the odds are that you will reverse your diabetes….
A DRAMATIC DIETARY DISCOVERY
In 2011, Professor Taylor began a trial that involved asking 11 recently diagnosed diabetics to go on a very low-calorie diet.
In the first week they lost an average of 3.9kg (8lb) and most reported finding the diet surprisingly easy, their hunger disappearing within 48 hours.

..Helena: Diabetic since 2003, things were “stable” for a long time. Then all of a sudden, my blood sugar started to spike to as high as 380, and even 400. And that’s when they started adding to my medications. At first I was just taking Metformin, then they added Glyburide and a third medication. I was so sick and my health was declining very quickly.
My endocrinologist said I can’t get my blood sugar in control, my Hemoglobin A1c at the time was 9.7. I was getting desperate. That’s when I sat down with Dr. Anderson and started talking about my options, and I got in to the Metabolic Coaching Program.
In one week, my blood sugar went down from 380 to 107. Over the next few weeks, I realized that I stopped having headaches after 6 months of enduring it every day. Then I started to notice that my joints were better, I was not in as much pain. Over time, I went from taking pain pills three times a day to one or two pills a week. Some weeks, I don’t even take any. This has made a huge impact in my life!

My family, church members and co-workers began to encourage me along the way. The weight began to come off, people began to notice, my energy had increased. I felt better than I had in a long time.
In the previous year’s time, I had lost 32 lbs. and my blood pressure was so improved that my doctor took me off of one medication. My visit with my doctor in October of 2015 proved that diabetes can be reversed. She said that my A1C was excellent. You said, “You are no longer diabetic; I will not have to see you every six months, only yearly.
That was music to my ears!..”

“..5. How Diabetes Can Affect Exercise Intensity
Complications of diabetes can make it difficult to accurately monitor a client’s heart rate. Therefore, for these clients it is best to use ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) to monitor exercise intensity. Because of the increased risk for hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), long-duration activities should be avoided. Similarly, very high-intensity exercise can increase the risk for hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Monitoring RPE during activity and testing blood sugar before and after exercise will help in finding the appropriate intensity for these clients…”

5. Try Exercising First Thing in the Morning, on an Empty Stomach
This is a secret trick from the bodybuilding world. Bodybuilders are constantly trying to burn as much body fat as possible without burning up muscle. Thanks to being surrounded by bodybuilders when I first became serious about exercise, I learned based on normal human physiology that exercising first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach, with an in-range
blood sugar, is the easiest time of day to keep your blood sugar from dropping because your body is primed to burn fat for fuel instead of glucose. This is because you have been fasting all night long, and your body’s backup stores of glucose have been used for energy while you were sleeping, and so your body uses fat for fuel instead…”

Sweaty and shaky
Rapid heart rate
If your blood glucose is low, follow the steps below to treat:
Follow the 15-15 rule: Eat or drink something from the list below equal to 15 grams of carbohydrate (carb).
Rest for 15 minutes, then re-check your blood glucose. If it is still low, (below 70), repeat step 1 above.
If your next meal is more than an hour away, you will need to eat one carbohydrate choice as a snack to keep your blood glucose from going low again.
If you can’t figure out why you have low blood glucose, call your healthcare provider, as your medicine may need to be adjusted.
Always carry something with you to treat an insulin reaction. Use food from the list below. ..”

Lower body and core resistance exercises also double as balance training.”
