I make my coffee with MCT oil and Integral Collagen as well, but instead of butter (which I can’t take on an empty stomach), I put a teaspoon of powdered whey protein in. I do an intermittent fast each day from about 8-9:00 pm until 1:30 the next day, so this coffee really gets me through the morning. I drink it while I’m doing my makeup and then drink a cup of regular coffee when I get to work. The collagen has thickened up my hair like crazy in the past year and I recommend this to all my friends who want to go low carb, try fasting or just want great hair and nails!
You state that many athletes and very active people could benefit from 100-200g of carbs a day, and be back in ketosis in a few hours. Any particulars on which kind of activities or say how long/many training sessions would benefit from this to balance hormones. I train mma 3-4 days a week and also do lots of hiit and strength training as well. Just trying to see if this is a situation where i would benefit from your suggestions. Thanks!

The prospective study was carried out at the Academic Department of Surgery, Consultation and Training Centre, Faculty of Medicine, Kuwait University (Jabriya, Kuwait) in 83 obese subjects (39 men and 44 women). The body mass index (BMI) of men and women was 35.9±1.2 kg/m2 and 39.4±1.0 kg/m2, respectively. The mean age was 42.6±1.7 years and 40.6±1.6 years for men and women, respectively. The mean age, initial height, weight and BMI for all patients are given in Table 1. Fasting blood tests were carried out for all of the subjects. Initially, all patients were subjected to liver and renal function tests, and glucose and lipid profiles, using fasting blood samples, and a complete blood count. Thereafter, fasting blood samples were tested for total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, urea and creatinine levels at the eighth, 16th and 24th week. In addition, weight and height measurements, and blood pressure were monitored at each visit.

Up The Salt:  Normally, the average diet is overloaded with salt, but a ketogenic diet eliminates refined and processed food and focuses on eating whole real food, so when you start keto you will naturally reduce salt intake, which reduces water retention. Since a low carb diet is naturally diuretic, there is no need to worry about water retention so feel free to put the salt back on the table!
Poor diabetes management is a leading trigger for DKA. In people with diabetes, missing one or more insulin dose, or not using the right amount of insulin, can lead to DKA. An illness or infection, as well as some drugs, can also prevent your body from using insulin properly. This can lead to DKA. For example, pneumonia and urinary tract infections are common DKA triggers.
When trying to shift from a high carb diet to a ketogenic diet, cravings can definitely get strong. It’s always best to try to clean house before you start so that you don’t have food around you that can lead to cravings. We recommend that when switching to keto, you restrict using sweeteners completely for the first 30 days. It normally leads to breaking sugar addiction and ultimately not having cravings.
I almost never comment on blog sites, but I wanted you to know that as a relative keto newbie, desperate to find an alternative to eggs every morning, I tried these pancakes. This was the first keto recipe I ever made. Verdict? LOVE! I can’t believe how good they are and how easy they are to make. I just dumped all the wet ingredients (only 4 eggs) in my Nutri Bullet, added the dry ingredients, and blitzed it all together. So, so, so good! I make four small pancakes at a time, and the remaining batter lasted in the fridge just fine for three more days. Yep, I had them four days in a row! Looking forward to exploring many more recipes on your site. Thanks so much!
Thorne Research has decided to discontinue their Glycofuse product, right when I started using it! Current inventory is expected to run out in June or July. I contacted them to ask if it was being replaced with a new product and at this time they are not able to answer that question, and suggested checking back in with them in June/July. Short of stocking up on a case of it, do you have another recommended product that is as clean & functional as the Glycofuse? This recipe in the blog post above has been working great for me this last month. I’m bummed I’m already going to have to switch it up again!
Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-low heat. When the bacon is soft and just starting to brown, add the onion and a pinch of salt. Cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion has softened. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they release their liquid and start to take on a little color. Increase the heat to medium and add the meat. Cook, stirring occasionally, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan, and breaking up any large clumps, until it loses all of its pinkness and is cooked through.
Because of the known effects of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs on the fetal cardiovascular system (closure of ductus arteriosus), use during pregnancy (particularly late pregnancy) should be avoided. Oral doses of ketorolac tromethamine at 1.5 mg/kg (0.14 times the human AUC), administered after gestation Day 17, caused dystocia and higher pup mortality in rats.
The official USDA database lists cream cheese as 1.56g of carbs per ounce. Some product labels may round this up or down, but it's actually the same for any full-fat cream cheese regardless of brand. Some calculators round this up to 2g per ounce, which can account for a big difference when extrapolating to the 32 oz needed for this low carb cheesecake recipe.

Overall mortality rates for diabetic ketoacidosis are < 1%; however, mortality is higher in the elderly and in patients with other life-threatening illnesses. Shock or coma on admission indicates a worse prognosis. Main causes of death are circulatory collapse, hypokalemia, and infection. Among children with cerebral edema, about 57% recover completely, 21% survive with neurologic sequelae, and 21% die.
Tried these Keto Lemon Bars for the first time last night. As my second ever Keto friendly dessert, these are absolutely amazing. They don’t taste “modified” or “lighter” at all. I followed the recipe exactly, adding 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla to the crust, as the notes offered. The bars have that familiar lemon bar texture once set in the fridge for a while. I definitely recommend fresh lemons, because the natural flavor can’t be beat. Thanks for a delightful new staple!

The ketogenic diet—also known as "keto"—has become the latest big thing in weight-loss plans, touted recently by celebs like Jenna Jameson, Mama June, and Halle Berry. The diet involves cutting way back on carbohydrates, to 50 grams a day or less, to help the body achieve a state of ketosis, in which it has to burn fat (rather than sugar) for energy.

This was my first time ever making cheesecake, so I was intimidated by the idea of making one without traditional ingredients for crust..etc. However, this recipe was extremely simple to follow and the ingredients weren’t hard to find. I followed each step to a T and my cheesecake came out perfectly! It tasted delicious and I cant wait to let everyone, (including non keto eaters) taste this perfect recipe! I’ll be saving this recipe forever!!
Thank you so much for this delicious recipe! I have searching for a pancake recipe that I love for years! Your recipe is my favorite! My protein powder might be drier than yours so I added another tbsp of the whipped cream. I also added cream of tartar and it made my pancakes fluffy. I think it’s perfect for waffles because your recipe makes the pancakes crispy but soft. I’ll have to try making waffles from this recipe. I love your recipe! I also tri d melting a slice of sharp cheddar on top of one pancake and it was absolutely divine. The sugar free carb free syrup is amazing! I got it right away. Thank you again ! More power to you !
Carrie, I highly recommend a support group. I personally know a woman “Amanda Rose” who recently lost half her body weight through the Keto Diet and intermittent fasting. You should totally join her Facebook Group. It’s called “Eat Like a Bear” and you can find it by entering the group’s name in the Facebook search bar. She is so amazing and so supportive for people struggling to lose the weight.

Hi Cassie, What a fantastic idea! I need to try that. I would recommend making a slurry with a couple teaspoons of arrowroot powder and just a little more cream, then add that in step 2 together with the vanilla extract. Proceed the same way as written with the rest of the recipe. If you try it, I’d love to know how it went and if it helped make the ice cream easier to scoop!
Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a severe and life-threatening complication of diabetes. Diabetic ketoacidosis occurs when the cells in our body do not receive the sugar (glucose) they need for energy. This happens while there is plenty of glucose in the bloodstream, but not enough insulin to help convert glucose for use in the cells. The body recognizes this and starts breaking down muscle and fat for energy. This breakdown produces ketones (also called fatty acids), which cause an imbalance in our electrolyte system leading to the ketoacidosis (a metabolic acidosis). The sugar that cannot be used because of the lack of insulin stays in the bloodstream (rather than going into the cell and provide energy). The kidneys filter some of the glucose (sugar) and excrete it in the urine.

Ketorolac has side effects that can be very dangerous. The risk of having a serious side effect increases with the dose of ketorolac and with the length of treatment. Therefore, ketorolac should not be used for more than 5 days. Before using this medicine, you should discuss with your doctor the good that this medicine can do as well as the risks of using it.
Hey, can I add more vanilla and lemon without it changing the consistancy of the cheescake. Also is the fruit sauce still keto approved since it has natural sugar. If so, can I use blueberries or strawberries instead? Sorry, I’ve tried to ask a few times now so if a million different versions of this question shows up, I apologize. BTW loved this recipe. I just wanted it to taste a little bolder on its own.

I’ve about lost my mind over this one. It tastes the most like the real think I’ve tried. I’ve made it three times in 2 weeks and sent it to everyone I know who is low carb. Made it with and without the crust and it’s awesome both ways. Made minis the first time -awesome! I had a minor tweak because I ran out of Swerve. I used 1 cup of that and 1/4 cup splenda plus I doubled the lemon. So, so good. Thank you!
Once inside the mitochondrion, the dominant way that the bound fatty acids are used as fuel in cells is through β-oxidation, which cleaves two carbons off of the acyl-CoA molecule in every cycle to form acetyl-CoA.[24] Acetyl-CoA enters the citric acid cycle, where it undergoes an aldol condensation with oxaloacetate to form citric acid; citric acid then enters the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA), which harvests a very high energy yield per carbon in the original fatty acid.[25][26]
okay so i am very new at this…starting this tomorrow with my mom. i know it says in the 3 day blog not to be concerned with portion size at first, but when that’s over with how do i know how much to eat? for instance, how many of the cream cheese pancakes are a normal portion size and how much ham and cheese am i supposed to put in them? sorry if any of these questions were answered previously, i just have read like every blog and i am confused.
Bone broth collagen: Bone broth is a rich source of collagen that is now available in powdered form. Bone broth collagen is loaded with amino acids that help to support healthy gut function, improve skin appearance from the inside out, build muscle and improve joint health amongst other benefits. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, and it’s found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons. As we age, our body’s collagen production naturally begins to slow down, which is why I am a big believer in a supplement like collagen-rich protein powder, powered by bone broth.
Since this is a no churn sugar-free ice cream recipe, you’ll need to take it out and stir it every 30-60 minutes, especially for the first 2 hours, and every 60-90 minutes for a few hours after that. You can also use an ice cream maker instead and skip the manual stirring process. But if you don’t have one, don’t skip the stirring, because this breaks up ice crystals and prevents the ice cream from becoming too hard or icy.
And another multi-purpose gadget you can use to make your keto coffee is an immersion blender.  The trick with this is to use a tall and wide coffee mug, pour half of your coffee along with your additions (butter, MCT oil, stevia, collagen, etc.), and start to blend with the immersion blender.  After 20 seconds, pour in the rest of your coffee and blend until frothy.
The team behind Hello Glow has concocted a breakfast smoothie with flavors that’ll remind you of vacation—so perhaps a Monday serving will do. This recipe, which was reprinted from Meredith Cochran’s The 7-Day Bone Broth Diet Plan, uses bone broth as a base but blends it with coconut milk, coconut cream, lime, and cilantro for a savory but sweet concoction. “It might seem strange to add bone broth to a smoothie, but bone broth smoothie recipes are trending for a reason: they taste good,” says the recipe.
I just fixed this bread and it is wonderful. I made a ham and mayonnaise sandwich and I am a happy camper. So glad it is so good bc I bought LARGE portions of the ingredients at COSTCO. Glad it is delicious so I’ll continue making it. I’m on this new life style of eating for the long haul and these recipes can be “not so good”, but this is a winner. The question I have is how to store the bread. Any idea how long it will keep?
This is such a hit recipe every time! I always make a double recipe for my family (don’t judge me LOL) but restrict myself to just 3-4 pancakes and they are so satisfying. I’ve tried other recipes, but keep coming back to this one. I put lemon extract in today and that was particularly great. To anyone that’s on the fence–this recipe really gives you excellent-tasting and light pancakes.
Although many hypotheses have been put forward to explain how the ketogenic diet works, it remains a mystery. Disproven hypotheses include systemic acidosis (high levels of acid in the blood), electrolyte changes and hypoglycaemia (low blood glucose).[19] Although many biochemical changes are known to occur in the brain of a patient on the ketogenic diet, it is not known which of these has an anticonvulsant effect. The lack of understanding in this area is similar to the situation with many anticonvulsant drugs.[56]

Hunger and satiety are two important mechanisms involved in body weight regulation. Even though humans can regulate food intake by will, there are systems within the central nervous system (CNS) that regulate food intake and energy expenditure. This complex network, whose control center is spread over different brain areas, receives information from adipose tissue, the gastrointestinal tract (GIT), and from blood and peripheral sensory receptors. The actions of the brain's hunger/satiety centers are influenced by nutrients, hormones and other signaling molecules. Ketone bodies are the major source of energy in the periods of fasting and/or carbohydrate shortage and might play a role in food intake control.

If you’re serious about maximizing the benefits of ketosis, then forego coconut oil, MCT liquid oil, olive oil, etc. and instead use Brain Octane as your oil of choice for recipes like bulletproof coffee, or in teas, salad dressings, or as a sushi or entrée flavor enhancer. For a slightly less expensive, but not quite as effective form of MCT, use XCT oil.
What happens when the body hasn't yet learned to burn fat and produce ketones? That's where hypoglycemia comes it. The result is a temporary energy deficit in the brain due to low blood sugar. Remember: this is a transient period of adaptation. The ease with which you can switch to using fats and ketones as energy varies by person, depending on a mix of genetics and habitual diet; some individuals demonstrate a greater metabolic flexibility than others. These lucky people experience far fewer symptoms or experience the flu for a shorter duration.
The “Dirty Keto” version of high-fat, low-carb dieting promises the same fat-burning results as mainstream keto. The only difference? You can get fat, protein and other macronutrients from any source — including foods like fast-food burgers and sugar-free candy. Dirty keto recipes have gained popularity because they taste great while promoting weight loss. But does dirty keto really work?
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food, with the intervention of insulin, are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fueling brain function. However, if little carbohydrate remains in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to a reduction in the frequency of epileptic seizures.[1] Around half of children and young people with epilepsy who have tried some form of this diet saw the number of seizures drop by at least half, and the effect persists even after discontinuing the diet.[2] Some evidence indicates that adults with epilepsy may benefit from the diet, and that a less strict regimen, such as a modified Atkins diet, is similarly effective.[1] Potential side effects may include constipation, high cholesterol, growth slowing, acidosis, and kidney stones.[3]

I used 2 eggs instead of three. I also used Perrier mineral water and ½ tsp baking powder, Swerve sweetener, and coconut milk. You may even want to increase the extract you use. With all that, the pancakes will have the consistency of a blintz or crepe. It was trail and error with the heat as well. I burned the 1st one. The type of range/stove you have and altitude will also be a variable. They take longer to flip. I wonder if milling the coconut flour again, to the consistency of matcha tea, will give a more silky texture? Has anyone tried that? I’m going to try aramanth to see if it changes the texture and heavy cream next time. As is, they are a welcome change from the sterile diet for diabetics. I had mine with a piece of beef sausage and Smucker’s diet maple syrup. I was given really bad pancakes with this syrup, while in the hospital, but the syrup and butter made them edible. No bad after taste. I called the dietician for the brand. They work well with this recipe.
Any suggestion to substitute cream cheese with something else (not dairy and keto-friendly)? I’ve decided to try this recipe using ghee instead of butter because it doesn’t hurt me, but it’s the only “dairy” that I tolerate (if perfectly clarified, of course… no lactose nor casein allowed for me). And I’ll omit the fruity topping, but I’m thinking to experiment with a home-made sugar free “coffee syrup” using powdered decaffeinated coffee, some kind of thickening (maybe gelatin) and powdered erythritol. Do you think it could be fine?

After all the wonderful reviews, I HAD to try these! I made them into waffles. I have a large, 4 square waffle iron. It made two pretty full waffles – so 8 squares. They were beauties! I used my bullet to mix the batter, omitted the cinnamon and maple extract, and baked the first batch as is. They were tender, *fragile*, but good. The second waffle, I sprinkled a generous amount of cooked bacon pieces on top of the batter and baked them until the steam stopped. They were FABULOUS! My husband and I thought we liked them so much better with the bacon because we feel like the recipe needs a bit of salt, so I will add that the next time I make them. And, I will DEFINITELY be making them again! Finally – a recipe that could “pass” for the full carb version! THANK YOU!!!
On the 3 day kickstart you can eat as much as you want until you are full! After that, it’s generally 2 pancakes for a serving, but it’s really as much as you want that fits into your calorie budget for the day (if you’re counting). That’s why I list the nutrition info for 1 pancake – you can multiply it by as many as you end up eating! Hope that helps! Enjoy!
That’s right: it turns out that if I could go back and do my year of strict ketosis again, I would do everything you’ve going to discover below. If I had done that, I would have avoided all the uncomfortable, unhealthy issues I experienced when I was eating a high-fat diet, and I would have gotten all the benefits with none of the harm. As a matter of fact, in the past 30 days, as I’ve begun a new journey into ketosis, I am now implementing the exact four methods you’re about to discover.
Moreover, in the above study of Sumithran et al. (2013), ketosis maintains post-prandial secretion of CCK as previously demonstrated by other researchers (Chearskul et al., 2008). Note that the orexigenic effect of BHB is blocked by transection of the common hepatic branch of the vagus nerve (Langhans et al., 1985). The hepatic branch contains fibers from the proximal small intestine, stomach and pancreas, and is sensitive to CCK (Horn and Friedman, 2004); ghrelin signals to brain are also transmitted via vagus nerve (Habara et al., 2014). Thus, the effects of ketosis on these two appetite-related hormones could be one of the many factors related to the effects of such nutritional regimen on food control.
In Keto Flu 101 my goal is to answer the questions I get asked on a daily basis about the Keto Flu. Many people who are interested in going into ketosis are afraid that they will get the keto flu and are looking for ways to avoid getting it all together. While every person’s experience is different, knowledge is power, so prepare to arm yourself with as much information about the keto flu as possible before you start the diet, so you know what to expect.
Tried these Keto Lemon Bars for the first time last night. As my second ever Keto friendly dessert, these are absolutely amazing. They don’t taste “modified” or “lighter” at all.

I definitely recommend fresh lemons, because the natural flavor can’t be beat. Thanks for a delightful new staple!
So I made the recipe for 16 slices. That was the default, but there was enough filling for two of the pies and only enough crust for one pie. I tried to adjust it to just 8 slices before I made the recipe but the amounts were really dumb. The amounts were in decimals for cups instead of fractions and weird amounts for tablespoons like 0.5 tablespoon, etc.
Thank you so much! Just to give an update- I recently tried reducing carbs even further(though I was still low carb to begin with,just last month I would eat a lot of fruit and things), just by slightly limiting berries and the starchier vegetables like pumpkin, bell peppers, onion, etc. and just that minor reduction seems to have stopped my addiction to snacking! It’s just mind blowing how even a slight reduction in carbs can really change the way you tend to eat😊

Don’t make the same mistake I did and get the un-shelled ones. (I tried to use them for a dessert and couldn’t figure out why it was so crunchy…) Hemp seeds have many amazing benefits – it is rich in GLA, good for digestive health, and can even help reduce sugar cravings. Put a handful in a small container or reusable snack bag for a super-healthy snack.


Great recipe! I honestly almost didn’t make these because of seeing several comments complaining about the texture. I’m glad I tried them anyway! I’ve made two batches one just like the video and the other I rolled the dough out and used cookie cutters then covered them with a vanilla glaze. I think I’m going to use these cookies with a heart shaped cookie cutter for Valentine’s cookies for my hubby!
Note: Are you a vegetarian or vegan and want to go on a ketogenic diet? It’s still possible! Just keep in mind that the dietary restrictions can sometimes be a little bit intense. Make sure to plan ahead and prepare to aid your success. To help out, we’ve published articles (with 7 day meal plans included) for both the vegetarian ketogenic diet and the vegan ketogenic diet.
One of the major concerns with ketorolac is the inhibition of platelet function through inhibition of cyclooxygenase and the potential for post-surgical bleeding. Ketorolac has been shown to have minimal effect on prothrombin and partial thromboplastin times but has been shown to cause modest increases in the bleeding time.1249,1263–1266 The effects of ketorolac on platelet function are different than those of aspirin. With aspirin, the antiplatelet effect lasts for several days after a single administration because of the irreversible acetylation of platelet cyclooxygenase. However, with ketorolac, this effect is reversible and therefore the effect is dependent on the presence of ketorolac within the body.1267 Therefore, the antiplatelet effects of ketorolac are gone when the drug has been excreted. This effect on platelet function has been of most concern in children undergoing adenotonsillectomy.1268–1271 In the studies reporting posttonsillectomy bleeding, most involved administration of the ketorolac during or at the beginning of the surgical procedure before hemostasis was achieved. In addition, the increased incidence of bleeding appears to be primarily during the first 24 hours, which corresponds to the several half-lives it would take to eliminate ketorolac from the body. The incidence of bleeding after the first 24 hours does not appear to be different.1272 It would therefore be reasonable to not administer this medication until the end of surgery after hemostasis is achieved. Some practitioners eschew this issue altogether and only administer ketorolac when the potential for a life-threatening hemorrhage is less.1205 Concerns regarding the possibility of postoperative hemorrhage appear to be valid, but the true frequency of life-threatening bleeding due exclusively to ketorolac is quite small.1261,1273–1276 Many clinicians discuss the possible use of ketorolac with the surgeon before administering it and document the conversation in the anesthesia record. Ketorolac has been safely used to provide analgesia for preterm and term infants, but the pharmacokinetics in this age group have not been described.1277

Keto-Friendly Dark Chocolate — If not sweetened with stevia or another low carb sweetener, make sure it’s at least 80% cocoa content or higher, as the carbs can add up quickly. Here is an example of low carb friendly chocolate that you can try. You can also make your own by mixing melted coconut oil with cocoa powder and your favorite low carb sweetener(s).

Barebones – the keto flu is your body’s natural response to carbohydrate restriction. If you’ve embarked on the keto path, you likely know that a keto diet – high in fat, moderate in protein, and low in carbs – implies you burn fatty acids for energy instead of glucose, which comes from sugar and other carbohydrates. While fat is typically a backup fuel source, you will tap into it if there is insufficient glucose, your body’s preferred fuel, from your diet. The metabolic state of ketosis is a fancy word for burning fat rather than carbs, and it is the secret weight-loss weapon to the keto diet.

This casserole dish whisks eggs up with fresh basil, fresh mozzarella balls, and tomatoes quickly simmered in olive oil. It's a caprese turned into breakfast! This recipe is a simple option, that's no fuss, and a bit of a spin on the typical American breakfast casserole.First you need to chop up the tomatoes and cook them down a bit in olive oil. Then the casserole is put together and baked in the oven till perfection. The mozzarella balls melt down into the egg, the tomatoes add a touch ...


I’m new to the low carb/low sugar diet but need to get my blood sugar in check before I am diagnosed with diabetes. I tried them this morning and mine were a bit grainy and dense too. I wouldn’t say that they tasted like regular pancakes but good in their own way. I left out the sweetener because artificial sweeteners and I do not get along. I found another recipe that includes a little avocado oil and almond milk to make them moister. So I might experiment a little when I try again. But overall they were pretty good. Thanks for the recipe Jessica. I know it’s alot of work.
WOW…these are SO good! I made them and ate some about an hour ago, and I could do it all over again! (That’s because we shared and each only had 2 pancakes) I pureed some strawberries with a touch of agave instead of syrup, and these were to die for. I can’t wait to try a bunch of your other recipes like pizza crust and crackers?! tater tots??! OMG! I’m buying some flax meal & cauliflower ASAP! I’ve been trying so hard to cut down on carbs but I LOVE bread and potatoes! You may very well save my new way of eating…singlehandedly. Thank you SO much! :)
Patients with diabetic ketoacidosis usually needs to be treated at the hospital. The person will receive treatment at first by an emergency medicine specialist and once admitted to the hospital by an internist, family medicine specialist or intensivist. Endocrinologists are physicians specializing in the endocrine system and diabetes, and often will be involved in the patient's medical care.
Ketoconazole is an antifungal medication which is used primarily to treat fungal infections. Ketoconazole is sold commercially as a tablet for oral administration (although this use has been discontinued in a number of countries), and in a variety of formulations for topical administration, such as creams (used to treat tinea; cutaneous candidiasis, including candidal paronychia; and pityriasis versicolor) and shampoos (used primarily to treat dandruff – seborrhoeic dermatitis of the scalp).[6]
The diagnosis of diabetic ketoacidosis is typically made after the health care practitioner obtains a history, performs a physical examination, and reviews the laboratory tests. Blood tests will be ordered to document the levels of sugar, potassium, sodium, and other electrolytes. Ketone level and kidney function tests along with a blood gas sample (to assess the blood acid level, or pH) are also commonly performed. Other tests may be used to check for conditions that may have triggered the diabetic ketoacidosis, based on the history and physical examination findings. These may include chest X-ray, electrocardiogram (ECG), urine analysis, and possibly a CT scan of the brain.
Made the recipe in silicon muffin/bar pans (set on edged sheet trays with about an inch of water bath) knowing my husband and I wouldn’t (or shouldn’t?) eat an entire cheesecake. The recipe made 12 muffins and 8 bars. I reduced the cooking time to 45 minutes and flash froze them for about 30 minutes in the silicon pans on the sheet tray after pouring off the water bath to ease release. Kept some frozen for later and left the others in the fridge where they softened overnight to perfection. Weeks of cheesecake? Oh my!!
You said you saw Dr. Jeff Volek at UCONN. I am interested in ketosis to help me with my M.S. I still have questions related to M.S. and not so much as it effects on athletes. I do live in CT, but was unable to locate Dr. Volek at either the Storres or Farmington campus. Would you be able to give me either his e-mail address or telephone number so that I can contact him directly? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

TORADOL (ketorolac tromethamine) ORAL is indicated for the short-term ( ≤ 5 days) management of moderately severe acute pain that requires analgesia at the opioid level, usually in a postoperative setting. Therapy should always be initiated with IV or IM dosing of ketorolac tromethamine, and TORADOL (ketorolac tromethamine) ORAL is to be used only as continuation treatment, if necessary.
Switching from a high-carb diet to a very-low-carb diet lowers insulin levels in your body. This is not only healthy but also one of the primary goals of a ketogenic diet. When insulin levels are very low, your liver begins converting fat into ketones, which most of your cells can use in place of glucose. When your body is mainly using ketones and fat for energy, you’re in a state of ketosis.
Thank you, Erica. Sorry, mascarpone won’t work in a baked cheesecake – it melts into a butter-like consistency when heated. Also, just so you know, mascarpone does not have 0 carbs. Manufacturers get away with writing 0 because they can round down if it’s less than 1 gram per serving. Mascarpone has 0.3 grams carbs per tablespoon, and cream cheese has 0.8 grams per tablespoon.

A person with diabetes developing diabetic ketoacidosis may have one or more of these symptoms excessive thirst or drinking lots of fluid, frequent urination, general weakness, vomiting, loss of appetite, confusion, abdominal pain, shortness of breath, a generally ill appearance, and dry skin or mouth, increased heart rate, low blood pressure (hypotension), increased rate of breathing, and a distinctive fruity odor on the breath.


Nutrient-sensitive neurons reacting to glucose but also to fatty acids (FAs) concentrations are present at many sites throughout the brain and may play a key role in the neural control of energy and glucose homoeostasis. Central administration of oleate, for example, inhibits food intake and glucose production in rats. This suggests that daily variations in plasma FA concentrations could be detected by the CNS as a signal that contributes to the regulation of energy balance (Moulle et al., 2014).

First reported in 2003, the idea of using a form of the Atkins diet to treat epilepsy came about after parents and patients discovered that the induction phase of the Atkins diet controlled seizures. The ketogenic diet team at Johns Hopkins Hospital modified the Atkins diet by removing the aim of achieving weight loss, extending the induction phase indefinitely, and specifically encouraging fat consumption. Compared with the ketogenic diet, the modified Atkins diet (MAD) places no limit on calories or protein, and the lower overall ketogenic ratio (about 1:1) does not need to be consistently maintained by all meals of the day. The MAD does not begin with a fast or with a stay in hospital and requires less dietitian support than the ketogenic diet. Carbohydrates are initially limited to 10 g per day in children or 20 g per day in adults, and are increased to 20–30 g per day after a month or so, depending on the effect on seizure control or tolerance of the restrictions. Like the ketogenic diet, the MAD requires vitamin and mineral supplements and children are carefully and periodically monitored at outpatient clinics.[48]
A keto diet has shown to improve triglyceride levels and cholesterol levels most associated with arterial buildup. More specifically low-carb, high-fat diets show a dramatic increase in HDL and decrease in LDL particle concentration compared to low-fat diets.3A study in the long-term effects of a ketogenic diet shows a significant reduction in cholesterol levels, body weight, and blood glucose.
