Re: Memory getting worse starting keto

I'm using the dip test strips and I am seeing a moderate amount of keytones. We have a wiki chapter on ketones and ketosis , which (among other things) discusses different ways of testing ketones. It sounds like you are using the urine strips. The blood ketone meters are considered more accurate. I...

Re: Memory getting worse starting keto

Can you guys describe what your macros are - percent calories from carbs, protein and fat? How are you keeping track of your keto journey? Are you testing for ketones? I'm focusing currently on avoiding carbs and eating fats. I'm afraid that if I overload myself with tasks and record-keeping, it wi...

Re: Memory getting worse starting keto

Thank you for your response. Since I’m already down the road with these changes, I may just stick with them and see if things even out.

Memory getting worse starting keto

I’ve noticed a fairly rapid decline in cognition now that I’ve transitioned to a keto diet. I’m also taking a number of recommended supplements, increased my physical activity and am slowly decreasing my clonozepam. I’m forgetting things I recently did and what I plan to do. I almost always remember...

Re: Shock news from 23and me.

Persistent anxiety is a risk factor for many diseases. I'm only a fan of news I can use. If I can't, these predictions are a source of needless anxiety. If you are doing everything you need to do to decrease your chance of a bad outcome, how does the information help? Perhaps if you are doing nothin...

Switching Diets for Gastroparesis Sufferers

Hi, The Bredesen diet is heavy on the fiber - particularly fibrous vegetables like cruciferous vegetables. Fiber, however, is deadly to people who have Gastroparesis (a partial or total paralysis of the mechanism of peristalsis due to damage of the vagus nerve) because it delays gastric emptying - e...

Re: Fiji water (silica rich water) - Reversal of Alzheimer's

My concern, as I read these hopeful reviews of this or that substance, is that there seems to be little scientific rigor behind recommending them. The anxious part of my brain wants to try everything with even a chance of making things better. The scientific part tapping my on a virtual shoulder beg...

Re: Just got my results - having a hard time with them

Believe me, as a dedicated lifetime hypochondriac, I understand your anxiety. You are lucky in that you know your risk factors now, when you are young. Your family history works in your favor. Look around the boards here - there is a lot you can do at your age. While there is no magic pill, you stil...
