On ketosis and my recent blood test

I also wanted to mention that I was in dietary ketosis when I had my blood drawn.  This means for sure my results would have clearly shown a mild raise in my blood ketones.

Now, if dietary ketosis was in any way life-threatening, I would have certainly had my doctor breathing down my neck about it when I went in for my follow-up visit just a few days ago.

I. Didn’t. Hear. A. Peep.  In fact, the doctor said I was all clear across the board as he pointed to the results on his laptop.

What’s that now about ketosis being dangerous?

Roomie bought this amazing baking-brownie-scented incense

And I’m wondering now if insulin can be spiked by scents.  This smells just like the real thing!!

Oh my god, my first cataract surgery is going to be happening on September 10.  So much sooner than I expected.  At this pace, I’ll be able to see fully by my birthday in October.  Holy crap what a great present to myself that would be.

Edit: As an aside, it never was determined exactly why I got cataracts.  Usually they develop when one hits the elderly stage, so in my case it was at least twenty years too soon.  To me, knowing my history, this strongly suggests they cropped up due to metabolic issues.  I may very well have been diabetic during 2010 and 2011 at the very least (because I ate sweets all the damn time), but due to no health insurance at the time, it of course was never diagnosed.

keto-everything:

It’s a hard concept for some people to grasp but here it is again.
Fact: Carbs convert to GLUCOSE in the blood.
Fact Glucose must be regulated within an upper and lower limit so that you don’t die.
Fact: Insulin does this regulation job
Fact: Insulin Primary function is to store excess blood glucose as FAT http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insulin
Fact: Insulin doing it’s job dropping blood glucose triggers an appetite response.
So the merry-go-round continues.
Replace carbs with healthy saturated fats and protein you will break the cycle.
The Swedish government now officially endorse LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) for health and weight loss.
The US and UK departments of health and agriculture are no longer impartial they are now owned by the corporate industrial food organisations.
Think for yourself.
