Andrew Scarborough - Brain Cancer survivor thanks to the ketogenic diet and other therapies - Here’s the relevant passage:
 
“There is even a book coming out soon called 'Keto Cure', which I feel is an irresponsible title and ironically will serve as more of a hindrance to this research rather than support it. I like Jimmy Moore as a person, but there is no way I can support this endeavour and would like to take this opportunity to distance myself from anything like this. I use my words very carefully and cautiously on purpose. You will notice that I will never say the word 'cure', because I believe these therapies do not cure, but have the potential to manage the condition as you would with a chronic disease. I see it as being like HIV in how we must think of treating it, with multiple agents targeting multiple metabolic pathways and supporting the immune system. There is clearly a strong role of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, drugs targeting metabolic defects, and both nutritional and supplemental methods of inducing ketosis in all of this that would need to be personalised for the individual's tumour type and their unique physiology. Nothing works in isolation and the ketogenic diet on its own is certainly not a 'cure all', as some like to market it.”
 
- The long nightmare witch hunt that Professor Tim Noakes has had to endure in a South African courtroom is now mercifully over--Verdict: NOT GUILTY!
This #lowcarb #highfat diet proponent and Real Meal Revolution author had been in and out of court since The Association of Dietetics there filed a complaint with the Health Professions Council over a tweet Noakes made about weaning a baby onto an LCHF nutritional approach. Anyone who had been following this story realizes this was a personal vendetta against Noakes who is deeply revered in South Africa for his promotion of the life-changing low-carb, high-fat #Banting diet.
The HPCSA announced today that they found no proof of unprofessional conduct by Noakes for that advice requested by a breastfeeding mother on Twitter. They ruled Noakes was not acting as a medical professional but as the author of a book on LCHF instead. When the verdict of this trial came down, Prof. Noakes raised his fist in the air before breaking down holding his head in his hands. All of us in the #ketogenic community owe this great man a huge debt of gratitude for his courage to stand up for what is right. We're at a crossroads right now in the #nutrition debate where people are finally doubting the veracity of the failed #lowfat diet approach. Hopefully this verdict empowers and reinvigorates others to speak out even stronger in favor of a diet that greatly improves health through the lowering of inflammation and insulin levels.

- If you don’t have any metabolic health issues to deal with, then why would going keto be any better than a raw vegan diet?
 
Dear Jimmy and The Doc,
 
I think my question for you may be slightly cheeky, but here it is. Listening to vegan advocates like Durianrider of 30 Bananas A Day fame, it seems he is quite convinced and determined to stand by his raw vegan lifestyle and this got me thinking—why are all of his blood markers, body fat, and energy levels so good if everything he believes about nutritional health is exactly the opposite of what we know and understand about keto? I am a 34 year old male, 6' tall and weigh 185 pounds. I have never had poor health, been obese, been pre-diabetic, or had any of the other metabolic issues that drive most people to a low-carb, high-fat diet. So why would going keto be a good thing for someone like me? I am sincerely asking this because Durianrider and his raw vegan approach seems to make a compelling argument to go that route to get even leaner. With all the criss-cross availability of nutritional info flying around the web, I find myself suddenly becoming very confused.
 
Can you help?
 
Best regards,
 
Derrick

1. Is it true that lowering your carb intake while eating a ketogenic diet lower mucus production leads to dry eyes?
 
Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles!
 
I’m so happy I found this podcast and have been binge listening ever since. Keto Talk is a breath of fresh air compared to all the contradictory information floating around out there. I'm trying to get keto-adapted again and this time I plan on doing it for the long haul. I do pretty good getting into ketosis no problem. I can always tell when my blood sugar levels aren't zig zagging, I’m needing less sleep, and my cravings and hunger are manageable.
 
I’ve noticed that when I drop my carbohydrate intake to less than 30g a day to be ketogenic, my eyes becomes severely dry. I can't open then at all in the middle of the night and end up having to use eye drops immediately upon waking up and that stings like the dickens. I've gone to see my eye doctor about this and everything checks out okay. I've read from various people online that decreasing carbs lowers mucus production. Is this true? If so, then is there anything I can do to deal with this issue while keto? I have 20 bottles of eye drops tucked away in every nook and cranny of my home because I can't live without them!
 
I've been waiting for the right ketogenic resource for a long time and you guys are it! Thanks for all you do!

2. What can my Type 2 diabetic ketogenic-eating mom taking insulin do to wean herself off the insulin to help in her weight loss efforts?
 
Hi Jimmy and Adam! 
 
My family has been doing keto for a few months and we’re all loving the health improvements we're experiencing. My 37-year old brother has lost almost 50 pounds, I’ve lost lost 25, and my 68-year old dad almost 20. Both my parents are Type 2 diabetics and their A1c has gone down. My dad was only on Metformin and his doctor has said he can go off medication now that his A1c is 5.4. But my 65-year old mom has been on insulin for over 10 years and has not been able to lower her dosage of 40 units of long-lasting insulin in the morning and 8 units of fast-acting insulin with each meal despite the fact her blood sugar levels are regularly under 120. Initially after going keto, she was able to discontinue the insulin she was taking with meals and still get her blood sugar down to 85. However, recently her blood sugar has been creeping back up again to around 120 requiring her to start taking insulin with meals again. 
 
My question for you is this: why would she need that much insulin in a day if she is staying below 20g of carbs with only moderate protein? My mom meticulously tracks her food intake on a daily basis. Of all of us in the family, she is the only one who hasn’t seen great weight loss success (just 10 pounds in several months) and I think it has something to do with the insulin she is taking. She’s much hungrier than the rest of us are if she doesn’t eat by the clock throughout the day. What can she do to reduce her need to take insulin and rev up her weight loss efforts? She’s quite discouraged right now. 
 
Thanks for all you do…you're literally saving lives!

3. Does a ketogenic diet help improve or completely heal rosacea?
 
Hi Jimmy and the Doc,
 
I’ve never heard you guys address rosacea (reddening of the nose, the cheeks near the nose, and the center above the forehead) on the show before, so here’s my question. I have this condition and these areas become very dry. When I first started eating keto, the condition went away quickly but then slowly returned. I measure my blood ketone levels and they stay between 1.5-2.5 mmol. Can a low-carb, high-fat diet help heal my rosacea?
 
Thanks,

- What is the mechanism of insulin resistance? Why does it take some people a long time to reverse insulin resistance despite going keto?
 
Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,
 
I have a geekish question about insulin resistance for The Doc to get all nerdy on. What exactly is the actual mechanism of insulin resistance?  It seems to me there are at least two components involved: 
 
1) The number or conformation of the insulin receptors on cell membranes are reduced or changed so that insulin cannot signal particular cells.  This seems to happen at different rates in different tissue types (i.e. muscle cells typically become insulin resistant with a lowering of the number of receptors or change conformation before fat cells)
 
2) It seems that some people tend to be "hyper-secretors" of insulin.  In other words, their beta cells secrete more insulin than someone else with the exact same glucose load.  
 
I understand how lowering blood glucose and thus insulin will help to correct the low receptor numbers because as the insulin goes down the cells will upregulate the insulin receptors (they will listen more carefully because insulin is whispering). But what can be done about the hyper-secretion of insulin? Does lowering the body burden of insulin also influence the beta cells to secrete less insulin? And why does it take so long in some people to see their insulin resistance reverse even after months or years of ketogenic eating? Finally, why are some people prone to insulin resistance and others seem almost immune to it no matter what they eat?
 
Thanks for the great podcast.  I look forward to it every week.
 
Stay geeky,
 
William

- Am I getting severe leg cramps from my high-carb cheats or from working out my legs while in a ketogenic state?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I have been low-carb/keto for the past two years. A few months ago I started getting pretty severe leg cramps that would wake me up at night. I lift heavy weights 2-3 days a week and I noticed I would tend to get the leg cramps a few hours after leg workouts. To help with the leg cramps, every night before bed I mix an electrolyte drink of 5g of magnesium, 1/4 tsp of salt and 1/8 tsp of potassium. I also try to have a cup of homemade bone broth daily and add more salt to it as well. When I drink the electrolyte drink daily, my leg cramps do not occur.

Whenever I have any sort of high-carb cheat meal, within an hour or two I get severe leg cramping. I have been strict keto of 20g total carbs and moderate protein of between 60-90g since March 2017. I have tested my blood ketones and I am getting readings of 0.5-0.8 mmol. I cheated last Sunday on Easter chocolates and three hours later I had severe leg cramps yet again. I also just returned from a two-day hiking event and took my electrolyte supplement both days.

I am sore today but do you think the leg cramps is from the hiking or the high-carb load? I just find it suspicious and almost predictable that if I cheat, the leg cramps come on. Any insight is appreciated.

Thank you,

Sara

1. Can a ketogenic diet help delay the onset of hair loss from Male Pattern Baldness?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I'm a little embarrassed to say that I've only really discovered podcasts in 2016. I guess I'm just old-school for a 29-year-old. Since discovering your podcast, it has literally taken center stage in my life. Thank you for ALL the incredible answers, insights, and obvious passion for keto! You really keep me and my fellow Ketonians inspired! My question for you is about Male Pattern Baldness. I've come to understand that through ketosis, testosterone levels go up, so could being in ketosis beginning in my 20’s with no signs of hair loss yet actually prevent hair loss? Is there any research about this?

Thanks for all your wisdom on all things keto!!!

Best,

Armand

2. Can eating keto produce a false elevated white blood cell count?

Hello Jimmy & Doc Nally,

I enjoy your show and am learning so much from you guys after being keto for a couple of years. I wanted to ask you about something my family doctor has brought to my attention over the past year or so. He has told me three times that I have a raised white blood count. He initially thought that I might have a bladder infection. I had no symptoms of illness, so this shocked me to hear this from my doctor. Is there any connection between eating keto and having a false elevated white blood cell count? Have you ever seen this before?

Thanks for your help with this question and I look forward to a lot more Keto Talk!

3. Can you go into more details about why some Ketonians deal with a pounding irregular heart rate and corresponding sleep issues?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

Back in Episode 37, you answered a question about heart rate and sleep. But the answer did not identify the problem nor did it give a solution. I am having the same irregular pounding of my heart and sleep loss since I started keto. Normally you guys do research and give an answer that explains the cause behind the issues asked about and then you share what to do about it. But it seems like you swept the problem under the rug and gave a ”there's something else going on" response. But I’m sure a lot of other people have this problem and it deserves a real answer. I live keto and won't go back to my previous diet, but I still want to solve the pounding irregular heart rate and sleep problems since going keto.

Thank you for all your help and energy spent to spread the keto message,

Linda

- Is there a way to quantify the amount of ketones being burned and used by the body? What percentage of ketones go to the various parts of the body?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

Loved meeting you guys at the Metabolic Therapeutics conference in Tampa, Florida earlier this year. I wanted to ask a question about how to quantify the ketone bodies being produced at any given time. The problem with testing blood ketones is it only gives you a snapshot of the ketones being produced in the blood, but not necessarily what is being burned at any given moment. Over time once you become keto-adapted, beta-hydroxybutyrate levels decrease ostensibly because they are being used more efficiently. In other words, a 1.0 mmol blood ketone reading of something who has been eating keto for a couple of years might actually be identical to a keto newbie getting a reading of 6.0 mmol. So, how can we measure the amount of ketones being burned and their distribution to the various parts of the body, especially the brain? Is there any way to know what percentage of ketones go to the various functions in the body?

I look forward to hearing what you have to share about my questions.

Elena

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

Thank you for putting my question on the air in Episode 60 where I shared about the atrocious low-fat, high-carb diet they wanted me to eat for my fatty liver. I wanted to update you on my appointment with the surgeon last Wednesday. He insisted I eat that diet they recommended to shrink my liver enough to have surgery in May. But I am sticking with the ketogenic approach that I know works for this. My blood sugar is down to 83 mg/dL and I’ve had no hunger and feel so much better. Thank you for such an inspiring podcast.

Best wishes,

- Torn between low-fat or low-carb diets

- Can consuming foods high in saturated fat lead to an increase in endotoxin levels?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

What do you guys think about Brad Pilon’s take on saturated fats and endotoxins.

Gregg

Email comments from Brad Pilon:

In research, a super reproducible way to increase a person's endotoxin levels is to make them drink 3/4 of a cup of heavy cream.

Drink some cream that's high in saturated fat and 1 hour later all the markers of endotoxin damage skyrocket.

In fact, ANY MEAL that is high in saturated fat can create this type of endotoxin impact.

Endotoxins come from your gut bacteria and are associated with inflammation, arthritis, atherogenesis, insulin resistance, weight gain and even depression. You want to do what you can to protect yourself from endotoxins entering your body.

So should you avoid saturated fats like the devil? Are all those Paleo people wrong?

No.

You just have to make sure you have some fruit or fruit juice - This simple step will help prevent the rise in endotoxins, and the damage that they cause.

If you’re having bacon and eggs, have some orange slices.

Having Creme Brule? Have some Blueberries too.

Easy Peasy.

Butter or olive oil? Eggs or no? New nutritional review cuts through the myths.

1. Should I be concerned with a higher level of Firmicutes in my gut health which supposedly puts me at a greater risk for obesity?

Hello Jimmy and Doc Nally!

I’ve been a listener since the first episode and enjoy listening to your podcast. I’ve gained so many valuable insights and appreciate the immense support you bring us as community of “Ketonians.” I have a question that I don’t think you’ve covered yet regarding intestinal microbiome and keto. I recently had my gut bacteria analyzed by Ubiome that indicated a major skew in the direction of more Firmicutes compared with Bacteroidetes at a 5.8:1 ratio. According to their commentary on my results, this makes more more susceptible to obesity.

So my question is this: Should I be concerned about this seemingly poor ratio of Firmicutes to Bacteroidetes that has happened since I started eating ketogenic? Or is this association of a preponderance of Firmicutes with a higher risk of obesity only hold up in the context of the Standard American Diet where we know eating too much fat in the presence of high amounts of refined carbs frequently result in obesity? Thanks for your help with this question.

2. How can eat keto when I have Variegate porphyria requiring me to eat more carbohydrates in my diet?

Hi Jimmy,

I love your Keto Talk podcast so much it overrides all other podcasts for me. In 2014, I made a commitment to get healthy at the age of 64 after a career in IT with a poor diet, lifestyle, and genetic issues that put me in a very unhealthy state. Eating a Paleo/primal diet, I am now down 30 pounds from my highest weight and all of my key blood markers are good with the exception of LDL and total cholesterol. But I’m afraid I can’t eat keto because I have hemochromatosis (high iron) and Variegate porphyria. Eating primal has significantly improved my iron overload, liver enzymes, and the time between needing to do a phlebotomy. While my iron overloaded liver seems to love low-carb, high-fat, my porphyria doesn't. I visited the Mayo Clinic to confirm the porphyria diagnosis I was told to eat 400g carbs daily. With the primal lifestyle I usually eat around 150-200 grams carb per day. However when I try to go lower than that the porphyria kicks in and I get increased pain and complications in the muscle and nerve tissues. It seems porphyria needs carbs which runs counter to my desire to be ketogenic. Is there a way for me to eat keto while also eating to feed the porphyria? Thank you for your help.

Debbie

3. If you spread the carbs out throughout the day, does that create a lower insulin release?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

Do people in general have less of an insulin release if carbs are spread out over the course of the day then eating them all at once? When I use to eat a normal carb diet, the theory was to eat smaller portions as a means of keeping insulin levels low. Would something like this help for someone who is very insulin resistant? I'm fairly insulin sensitive, so I use keto to stay healthy. I've been eating keto for about four months and enjoy doing n=1 experiments to see how my body reacts to any changes I make. I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Thank for all the info you guys provide to us and I always look forward to your new episodes. I wish you guys would create a forum for your large Ketonian community to talk to each other and find out what topics are hot in the world of keto.

- Do I need to eat a high-carb diet prior to visiting a very high elevation for a few weeks to utilize oxygen better?

Hi Jimmy & Doc Nally,

Thank you for such an informative and funny podcast. It's such a great companion for me on my long drives. I have a question on doing keto while at high altitude. I live close to sea level and will be going on a business trip to a place at 17,000 feet above sea level soon for a total of 2 1/2 weeks. The client has advised us that we need to eat a high carb diet (75% carbs) in order to use oxygen efficiently at that elevation. My understanding is that when we are in ketosis we don't need to be as concerned with absorption of oxygen as we don't need it for the fermentation process to produce energy from glucose. Is this correct? If not, should I be eating high-carb in preparation for this this? Also, do you have advice on how to optimize energy levels in this situation?

Much regards,

Sorina

- Why do I have such an insatiable hunger on my ketogenic diet? Is it hormone related?

Dear Jimmy & Adam,

We actually found your Keto Talk podcast by accident as my partner and I were recommended to listen to another keto podcast and found yours by mistake instead. We’re so glad we did as we’ve listened to nearly every episode and love it. Keep up the awesome work.

I have Hashimoto's, so I am keen to see if keto can help with controlling my thyroid and hormones. I am 32 years old, 5’7”, and weigh 168 pounds. I lost 22 pounds on the hCG diet, but need a more sustainable way of eating to keep the weight off. My question for you is about this insatiable hunger I felt during Phase 2 of hCG that has continued with keto. I thought it would subside with all the fat I’m eating, but it has not. All I can think about is finding more food, especially meat and fat. This food obsession is unrelenting and I’m at a loss about what to do. I’m continuing to gain weight and I’m frustrated by this.

My supplement intake includes Magnesium, Selenium (to help with Estrogen), activated B complex, Adrenotone (Adrenal herbal supplement to assist with Adrenals), high dosage Vitamin C (ph balanced variety), probiotics and a colloidal mineral complex. I also take Desiccated Thyroid Extract 45mg and naturally derived progesterone cream (applied from day 12 of cycle to menses). I drink plenty of water (about 3-4 liters per day), eat plenty of salt, and consume lots of raw organic grass fed butter and organic coconut oil. I steer clear of dairy due to the rapid weight gain I get from it with the exception of butter. My urine ketones are on the low end, so I realize that’s probably part of the reason for my struggle.

I understand this insatiable hunger is somehow hormone related, but I am wondering if you are able to explain further what might be going on and what physiological processes are going on to cause this. Thank you so much for what you do! I am in awe of your wealth of knowledge and appreciate what you are doing for all us Ketonians out there.

Take care and keto on!

1. Can a ketogenic diet help health the fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome brought on by deficient hormone levels?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

You guys are transforming lives with your podcast and you’ve made me feel like a keto evangelist when the topic comes up in my circles. You are to carbaholics what AA is to alcoholics. I have Fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome and using the ketogenic diet over the past 4 months has enabled me to improve these conditions greatly.

I got Fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue while doing daily cycling training rides for up to 3 hours after work while being deficient in Testosterone, Growth Hormone, and Thyroid issues as a result of having Empty Sella Syndrome. The stress of that combination has set me up for this illness. Sadly my diet was loaded with carbage for decades and thankfully I’m now 100% ketogenic for life at the age of 49. My hope is keto will help me recover along with appropriate hormone replacement. Is this possible?

Thanks guys!

David

2. Will consuming 30g carbs or less with IF cause me to halt or rev up my weight loss efforts?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

I’m a healthy 34-year old Ketonian and need your help to clear up some confusion I’ve been hearing about keto and intermittent fasting. A nurse practitioner at a low-carb clinic told me that doing IF and going below 30g carbs daily will halt your weight loss. Another Ketonian says daily IF with 20g carbs daily for at least 30 days will help jumpstart my weight loss again. I’m currently keto-adapted and have been for quite a long time. Thanks so much for your help!

3. Should I be concerned that my ketone levels are so high early on in my ketogenic journey?

Hi Jimmy and Doc!

Loving your podcasts and listen on my daily walks! I am new to keto and learning everything I can about it soaking it in like a sponge. My question is regarding ketone levels. On Day 5 of starting my ketogenic diet, my ketones were high in the afternoon at around 8 using the Ketostix. I made sure I was plenty hydrated and my urine was clear. I tested again a couple of days later in the morning right after waking up and my ketones were also high. I Googled and searched all over to find any information about why I am experiencing such a high reading like this. Do I need to eat more carbs than the 10-12g daily I am currently eating? I feel fantastic and have tons of energy after having only a couple of days of the keto flu. I consume around 1400 calories a day and stick to 60g protein and 100g fat. I’m loving the food I get to eat now, but these higher ketone levels concern me. Should I be concerned?

- Is there an age that is too old to be on a ketogenic diet?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I have been enjoying eating keto as a 72-year old woman and I have been blessed with excellent health and no medications. Despite being overweight, I have perfect health markers. I probably need to lose 50 pounds and I’m working on finding a local physician to help guide me on my ketogenic diet. One of the employees at this one clinic told me a woman my age should never be in ketosis. Am I too old to be ketogenic?

Thank you in advance,

Francesca
