– Why am I waking up in the middle of the night and struggling to get back to sleep? What can I do?

 


Hi Keto Talk,

 


I understand sleep is an important component of ketosis and overall health, but it’s a big problem for me. For the past three years I wake up between 3:15-3:30AM and struggle to get back to sleep. A few months ago my doctor prescribed Silenor. It seemed to help in the beginning but it is helping much less now. I believe this medication might be interfering with my pursuit of ketosis and fat loss. I know I have high cortisol levels, but my doctor is unconcerned since I don’t display any of the typical symptoms. I’ve tried melatonin and valerian, but they both give me horrendous nightmares. Most sleep herbs are designed for falling asleep, but that’s not my issue. Do you have any suggestions for me?

 


Thanks,

 


Laura

1. How do I deal with this low progesterone to optimize and complement my ketogenic nutrition?

 


Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 


I have learned so much from both of you on my health journey! I have lost 50 pounds since last May using keto and intermittent fasting, implementing much of your advice, and I am now very close to my weight goal. I hit the occasional plateau along the way and at those times I noticed I would need to shift my focus from losing weight to understanding the big picture of my overall health. In that regard, my Mirena IUD (which releases synthetic progesterone teaching my body to make less of its own progesterone) began to seem relevant. I had it implanted in November 2012 and replaced in November 2017. When I had it replaced, I was weighing daily so it was easy to notice a six pound weight jump overnight for no apparent reason.This happened three days after I got the new device and it led me to do some research.

 


I concluded that I really need to get that thing removed which I did in mid-December 2017 over the pushback from my doctor. I got my period back almost immediately and it lasted about a week, but since then (40 days) I have not had my period again. More disturbingly, I am now experiencing other symptoms like itchy skin, shakiness, dizziness, fatigue, brain fog, mood swings, and weakness. I considered electrolyte balance and treated for that with extra salt and magnesium (which always works for me during fasting)—but no effect. I tested my blood sugar when feeling extra shaky and weak—it really felt like hypoglycemia—and it was 83 preprandial (my A1C in November was 4.7).

 


Based on my research, my symptoms suggest low progesterone; if that is the case, how should I proceed? Should I tough it out and wait for my body to ramp its own progesterone production back up? Should I take bioidentical progesterone, or would that throw off my overall hormone balance? Should I look instead to adaptogens like Maca? Is there anything I can focus on nutritionally to encourage a return to optimal hormone balance? I had been feeling so amazing up until recently so these symptoms are hard to miss and are definitely discouraging.

 


Thank you for the wonderful podcast, I look forward to it every week!

 


Kind regards,

 


Stacey

 


2. Is eating high-protein long-term like eating high-carb? Are very low triglycerides a health problem?

 


Hi guys,

 


Can five plus years of eating high protein be just as damaging to someone’s metabolism and insulin levels as eating five years worth of carbage? It seems like right now I am just maintaining weight and body fat levels after the initial water weight loss. I have been in nutritional ketosis for the past five weeks with blood ketone levels ranging from .6-1.3 in the morning. My fasting morning blood glucose readings are 85-102. Also, does having super low triglycerides (below 45) show a sign of any health issues? My triglycerides have been that low for years, way before keto.

 


Thank you so much guys. I have literally been listening to your shows on repeat ever since I discovered them a few weeks ago! You have so much information and explain things in a very fact of the matter way which I really appreciate!

 


Thank you!

3. Is it typical for keto to produce out of whack energy metabolism markers on an organic acid test?

 


Hi Jimmy and Will,

 


I recently did an organic acid test to see the effects keto was having and my energy metabolism markers were completely out of whack. In fact, the people who ran the test took extra long because they repeated it a few times just to be sure there wasn’t a lab error. I’m pretty freaked out by the results and don’t know if there is something problematic going on or if this might be typical of someone on keto.

 


Much appreciated!

– What is the major difference between burning fat and burning ketones for fuel?

 


Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 


People sometimes talk about burning fat and burning ketones in the same breath as though they were more or less the same thing, but don't think that's quite the case, is it? Let me describe what I think is roughly going on and then please correct me where I am wrong: Assuming blood insulin levels are low enough, fat can be released from the adipose cells. It was in the adipose cells in the form of triglycerides and after release, it is converted into free fatty acids and then the glycerol part is converted into glucose. The free fatty acids go via the blood and can be used in the muscles directly as fuel, for example. Some of the free fatty acids make it to the liver and can be converted to ketones, some of which are used to fuel the brain, and probably can

also fuel the muscles and other parts of the body. Now, in some descriptions, I see ketones being described as byproducts of fat metabolism which I assume means that first the fatty acids are burned for fuel and then ketones result as a byproduct of this metabolism. Is that correct, and if so, can those ketones also be used as fuel? If so, it implies that fat is indeed a super fuel because it can be used twice so to speak. So then what is the biochemical result of burning ketones? Keep in mind that I am seeking, if possible, a reply that is understandable to a layperson like myself but also one which does not oversimplify the science if that’s humanly possible.

 


Many thanks in advance,

 


Mike

– Does getting hungry during a 24-hour fast mean I’m not yet keto-adapted?

Hello Jimmy and Will,

I love keto and appreciate you guys for all of the info you put out there! I'm a 5’7” tall, 31-year old female, and weigh 158 pounds. I have been on a ketogenic diet for the past five weeks keeping my carbohydrate intake between 30-50g daily. I work out for an hour with HIIT and weight training about 3-4 times per week as well as 2-3 one-hour classes of indoor cycling weekly. Overall, I have been feeling pretty good with only occasional fatigue. I recently decided to add in fasting to my routine doing several 24-hour fasts so far. I’ve noticed I start to get hungry about 12 hours into these 24-hour fasts and the hunger just lingers for the rest of the fast. Does this mean I’m not keto-adapted? Thanks for your help!

1. Can someone who produces excess bile eat a ketogenic diet if they can’t handle a higher fat intake?

Hey guys,

My daughter is a big believer in keto and she really wants to do the diet for her health. But she has a terrible time with eating fat, even the healthy fats, because of a bad bile reflux condition where she produces too much bile. Foods like guacamole, sausage, and even eggs make her queasy and nauseated. The standard medical advice for this condition is to go on a low-fat diet--something she knows from her research and experience is not a good thing. Do you have any ideas for her about how she can implement a ketogenic approach with this excessive bile issue? I should add that they have done an endoscopy and the doctor could see where her stomach lining was quite inflamed. She takes medications for that and if she misses just one dose, the result is horrible abdominal pain.

Thanks so much for your help!

2. Does consuming sugar and carbs make the infection from legionnaires' disease better or worse?

Hello my friends,

I am new to keto and had to deal with this condition last week known as legionnaires' disease which is a severe form of pneumonia from the lung inflammation usually caused by an infection. I felt like I was basically starving to death. I consume carbs and sugar the last couple of days of dealing with this because I felt like my body needed them since I was in a mentally dark place. This condition left me crying often and feeling absolutely awful. Did the sugar and carbohydrates I consumed dealing with this make the infection worse or are they somehow a good thing when dealing with legionnaires' disease? Thank you for your insights.

3. Why are my fasting blood glucose levels rising since giving up wine when I went keto and will they normalize over time?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I've been following a low-carb diet for years and recently shifted over to keto. I love drinking wine every single day and I realized I probably was drinking too much of it. BOO! So I decided to give it up altogether to see if it would boost my ketogenic efforts to lose weight and improve my health markers. I lost 35 pounds a couple of years ago eating low-carb, but I haven’t lost anything more since. One thing I’ve always hung my hat on despite the lack of weight loss is my impeccable blood sugar control as well as other health markers I regularly track. I take a medication called Atacand Plus for hypertension but no other medications. I’m sure dropping the remaining 35 pounds of weight from my body will enable me to come off that medication for good. So here’s my issue: since going keto and coming off of my beloved wine, my fasting blood glucose levels have risen. I thought coming off the wine would be a good thing, but it seems my blood sugar has gone in the opposite direction. What’s causing this to happen and will it eventually normalize over time?

Any insight into this is greatly appreciated. Love your podcasts!

– How do Ketonians effectively explain why people will no longer want to eat their favorite carbohydrate foods anymore once keto-adapted?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been keto for about a year and a half and had a few bad weeks over the holidays where I went in and out of ketosis and started having carb cravings again. The most amazing and hard to believe thing about keto has been the way carb cravings completely vanish for good so long as I stay in ketosis. In fact, I am in an office right now with a box of donuts right next to me and I simply don’t care nor do I have a desire to consume them. That’s utterly amazing and something I wouldn’t have imagined possible before being keto and experiencing it for myself. Several people in my life have adopted the ketogenic lifestyle after having seen my success and several others showed interest but could not get past the idea of giving up their beloved carbs. I try to explain to them that after they get keto-adapted, they won’t want carbs anymore. But it’s so hard for them to imagine what that would be like. I think that the biggest challenge we Ketonians have is effectively communicating why people won’t want to consume bread, pasta, chips, and all the other crappy carbage they think they can’t live without anymore. Do you have any suggestions on how to best do this?

Thanks so much for all you do!

– Why do I become more stressed, anxious, depressed, and have worse brain health when I switch to eating a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I love what you guys do. You’re both a wealth of knowledge and I have learned so much from listening to your podcast. I am a 25 year old male, 220 pounds, 13 percent body fat, and a weightlifter. I have experimented with low-carb/ketogenic diets many times consuming 3500 calories with a macronutrient ratio of fat/protein/carbs at 75/23/3 making sure I supplement with plenty of electrolytes and high-quality sources of fat. My stress levels are somewhat high, but I work on keeping them in check. So here’s my issue: when I switch to a more ketogenic approach, I become very stressed, anxious, somewhat depressed, and actually feel like my brain is working at half-capacity. Based on what I hear you guys talk about with other Ketonians, this is quite the opposite of what should be happening. Why do I feel so crappy? My hypothesis is low serotonin levels, high cortisol levels, and perhaps a genetic inability to thrive on keto. Am I on to something or do you have anything else that I haven’t thought of yet? I am extremely frustrated because I believe keto is the ideal way to eat. Help please!

1. Is there a connection between the high-fat content of a ketogenic diet with a hiatal hernia?

Hey guys,

I started keto to help me solve my acid reflux. I've been eating this way for 2 weeks and it seems like my acid is actually getting worse. It gets especially bad after I’ve consumed a really heavy, fatty meal. I am 5’6”,119 pounds, and pretty active. I am trying to gain weight so my daily fat intake is 200g with 20-30g carbohydrates, and 80-100g protein. I've been in ketosis for about 10 and experienced the keto flu which is now getting better. One week into eating keto, I had an upper endoscopy done and they found a small hiatal hernia. Their brochure, of course, said to stay away from fatty foods. They are also checking for gluten intolerance and I already know that I have a slight intolerance to lactose as I would break out with zits every time I drank milk. I haven’t received the result of those tests yet and I haven’t heard much about keto and the impact on a hiatal hernia. Are you are aware of any connection?

2. Would a ketogenic approach provide any relief from the symptoms I’m experiencing from having mono?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

Thanks for your podcast! I'm a 60 year old woman and have been keto off and on for years and strict keto of 20g carbs daily with intermittent/extended fasts mixed in since May 2016 netting blood ketones levels of .8-2.4. I don't have very much weight to lose and instead use this way of eating to stop my sweet cravings. I have had horrible exhaustion for years and have gone through many treatment programs from many alternative, functional medicine/nutrition programs, but nothing worked. Recently, an MD diagnosed me with the convalescent stage of mono and I have finally found my diagnosis! Sadly, this MD had no solution. Have you heard anything about the relationship between keto and mono? I can see my lymph nodes in my face and neck since they are often very swollen at night, I have annoying tinnitus, and I’m also quite bloated with tummy aches often—my doctor said it’s the mono causing these issues. Any ideas for me to try? I've spent so much money and time trying to get better, I'd love some hope. Thank you so much in advance.

3. Could eating a ketogenic diet reduced the likelihood of developing a streptococcal bacteremia infection?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m 21 years old and have been ketogenic for the past three months seeing major improvements in my appetite, weight, and overall well-being. In 2016, I suffered from streptococcal bacteremia without ever finding the source of the infection. The infectious disease doctor said it was unlikely for me to ever develop it again, but I have a hindsight question about this: had I been eating keto before this happen, could it have reduced the likelihood of me having to suffer from this? Thanks for all the amazing work you do.

– Will taking glycine force your body to burn leftover glucose or will it use stored body fat? Am I in ketosis or ketoacidosis?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating low-carb for many years and have only a few more pounds left to lose. I'm currently 5'9" and 142 pounds. I use straight glycine powder (about 4g under my tongue and hold it there for at least 2 minutes) about 45 minutes after every meal to help my digestion. From what I understand, glycine is an amino acid that helps to release insulin to lower glucose and causes glycogen to be released leading to the release of fat cells. My blood ketones range from .9-1.9 mmol and my blood glucose is usually 4.8 to 5.4 (86-97 mg/dL). Am I in ketosis or ketoacidosis? Is the glycine forcing my body to burn leftover glucose and not actually burning fat? Or am I burning stored body fat? I’m so confused now and hope that you guys can clear this up for me.

Thank you for your help,

Lisa

– What can a spouse eating keto do to best deal with a non-supportive spouse who doesn’t approve of their chosen diet?

Hey Jimmy and Maria,

Of all the tips and answers you've provided to questions around ketogenic diets, I haven't heard anyone talk about the impact they can have on your relationships. I have an amazing wife who is the mother of our two small children. When I started keto diet last year, she was supportive of my efforts for the first six weeks I was doing it. Part of the challenge was I set her expectations that this would only be a temporary thing. However, once I started seeing some incredibly positive results, I had to continue doing it to reap the benefits. But this is when it created a rift in our relationship. She watched me eat meat and cook foods in bacon grease and couldn’t understand how that could possibly be healthy as she subscribes to a more conventional low-fat diet. Additionally, feeding our kids has been hard (although they do love their daddy’s bacon!). So I decided to relax my ketogenic approach in order to appease my wife and introduced carbs back into my diet. Now I want to do periods of intermittent and extended fasting to mitigate the effects of those added carbs. If my wife reacted to keto the way she did, I can’t imagine how she’s gonna respond to the other F-word. My marriage is very important to me and so is my health. Do you have any tips on how a ketogenic spouse can deal with their spouse who is not supporting their ketogenic way of eating? Thanks for all you do!

1. What vitamin and mineral requirements change from what is in the RDA when you adopt a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

I've spent a lot of time learning and implementing the exact ketogenic approach that’s right for me. But it occurred to me as I reviewed my micronutrient intake on keto that the RDA levels from our government are based on a carbohydrate-eating population. The sodium recommendation, for example, is 2.3 grams daily which is woefully inept for someone in nutritional ketosis for a wide variety of reasons you’ve already discussed many times on this podcast. But this example of how far off the RDA for sodium has got me thinking what other micronutrients were are way off on with the recommended daily allowance. I read a study that suggests keto dieters need far less Vitamin C than carb-based eaters. So what other vitamins and mineral RDA requirements might be impacted for someone following a well-formulated ketogenic diet? This seems like an interesting subject to explore.

2. Why does a ketogenic diet and fasting lead to a white or yellow coating on the tongue and will it eventually go away?

Hey Keto Talk,

Many people have pointed out their breath and tongue change while eating a ketogenic diet and during a fast. I’ve seen people posting pictures of their tongue that show a white or yellow coating. What in the world is this and will it eventually go away?

Warm regards,

3. Why did my body suddenly stop thriving despite still being in a state of nutritional ketosis?

Hi Jimmy and Maria,

I started my keto diet a couple of weeks ago and it was typical—the first 3 days were miserable, but on day 4 I felt a drastically better as the ketones kicked in. I had five days of incredible energy, suppressed appetite, and superb cognitive benefits as my blood ketones soared into the 2-3 mmol range. It was great! But then things took a change for the worse as I suddenly started feeling cranky, sluggish, and dealing with brain fog. My ketones dipped slightly, but I was still well into ketosis at 1.5+ on the blood meter. I’ve been drinking plenty of water, consuming sodium, magnesium, and potassium for all the electrolyte benefits. So my questions for you guys is this: Did my body start rejecting the ketones I had been thriving on because it wanted to shift back to burning glucose again? Or is this simply a part of becoming keto-adapted? Any suggestions you have about my situation would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Rob

– Can a BAC breath alcohol analyzer measure ketone levels accurately? Are ketone levels of 5.0+ dangerous?

Hi Jimmy and Maria,

I have a quick question about using a simple breath alcohol analyzer to test ketone levels. From my understanding, you multiply the number you get on the BAC meter by 4-5 to get the equivalent blood ketone reading. So a 0.4 reading on the BAC would equate to 1.6-2.0 mmol in blood ketones. Is this a valid way to test for ketosis? I know it’s probably inaccurate, but how far off is it? Using this equation to determine my level of ketones with my keto and fasting efforts, I got a 1.3 reading on the BAC which would equate to 5.2-6.5 mmol on the blood ketone meter. Is this a dangerous level of ketones to have?

Thank you for answering my question.

– Is there any connection between HIV medications and the expected benefits of a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I listen to your podcasts everyday and I think you guys are awesome speakers. I'm kinda desperate for some answers as I am HIV positive taking HAART (Genvoya) and have lost 13 pounds rather easily eating keto. I love this way of eating, but for some reason while I'm in ketosis I just don’t feel right. I tried it for several weeks and even kept my salt/potassium/magnesium intake up to help balance my electrolytes. Being on a ketogenic diet, I’ve noticed my sleep get deeper after I used to deal with insomnia regularly. During ketosis I slept like a baby...almost too deep of a sleep if that's possible because my head is swimming all day after waking up from this. Is there some metabolic issue with the HIV medications I am taking that could be preventing me from getting the cognitive and energy benefits of ketones? For now, I'm just eating low-carb but avoiding ketosis because of these negative effects.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

1. Does a high-fat diet disrupt the mucous gut barrier and change the role the microbiome plays in the body?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Bestselling author Sylvia Tara writes on page 120 of her book The Secret Life of Fat that "the mucous gut barrier can be disrupted by a high-fat diet." She quotes Dr. Patrice Cani, a researcher, who implies that high-fat diets change the microbiota composition by disrupting gut microbiome function. Should we Ketonians be concerned about this? I checked Dr. Google, but that only confused me more. Can you share what this is about?

Thanks for all the great information!

2. Why is my heart racing since I started keto and when can I expect things to return to normal again? Would intense exercise be good or bad during this time?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I'm a 25-year old guy that started doing keto about a week and a half ago and over the past three days my heart has been racing. I usually have a resting heart rate around 55-60 bpm, but when I started eating keto it jumped up to around 75 bpm. I've been doing a lot of research on this and most of what I'm finding deals with electrolyte imbalances. I have been salting my foods with pink Himalayan sea salt, using lite salt for potassium, and magnesium. How long does it usually take to rebalance all the electrolytes when all of these things are being dumped at the beginning of keto so my heart rate will return to normal? And should I be doing high intensity exercise while my body is still adjusting to keto or would that make this issue worse? I'm starting to get a little worried about it.

Be Blessed!

3. Can keto help endometriosis? Will food allergies prevent me from going keto? If dairy is estrogenic, should I avoid them if I have high estrogen?

Hi Jimmy and Will

I have several questions for you guys to answer. Is keto effective for people dealing with endometriosis and endometriosis chocolate cysts (endometriomas)? I already know that I have a moderate intolerance (which means I can only have them every 4 days) to eggs whites, cow's milk, whey, coconut and avocado. I know most people just suspect they are intolerant, but I did blood tests that confirm it. Would these food allergies prevent me from going keto? I’ve heard that dairy is inflammatory for the body and can carry extra estrogens, so should women with high estrogen avoid dairy altogether?

Thank you for addressing these for me.

– How is it possible for A1c to fall into a healthy range while fasting insulin precipitously rises?

Hi guys,

I am a devoted listener and have found so much information useful to me on my health journey. I am a very active, very trim 5'6" 115-pound woman who is 55 years old living in the Colorado forest. For as long as I can remember, I have been eating a ketogenic diet for 6 months of the year (during the fall and winter) for most of my adult life and have gone fully keto year round the past two years. I drink wine from Dry Farm Wines but no other alcohol. My question is about some blood test results that have me scratching my head about what to make of it. I do regular home A1c tests and I’ve noticed it drop from 5.8 down to 5.0. Perfect response on keto. But when I had my insulin checked over that same time period, I noticed it has risen from 8 to 15 in just six months while eating keto. How is this possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

– What evidence is there that it can take 4-6 weeks for the body to become keto-adapted?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I am such a big fan of Keto Talk and have a quick question for you guys to address. I’m in a Facebook discussion with a calories in, calories out carb-lover. He says there is no such thing keto-adaptation that takes upwards of 4-6 weeks. This fits within his narrative and I would like to rebut that if possible. Do you have any evidence from research that discusses the shift from sugar burner to fat burner and how long it can take? I remember Dr. Nally used to say that cell membrane transporters can take 4-6 weeks to optimize for optimal ketone utilization. Can you help me respond to this keto skeptic?

Thanks and best regards,

1. Why have my episodes of vertigo increased since I started eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I am very grateful for your podcasts as I find them extremely helpful to me and my family as we continue on this ketogenic lifestyle. I am a 33-year old female and was diagnosed with vertigo seven years ago. These episodes were always sporadic when they would hit every couple of years. But I’ve noticed since I started keto that these episodes are happening with greater frequency. Perhaps it coincidence that they started happening more often when I started eating low-carb, high-fat, but I’m wondering if this is something I should expect to be happening more when eating this way. In five months of keto, I’ve lost 55 pounds and feel amazing except for the vertigo issues. Any ideas you can share about this with me?

Thank you for being my keto gurus!

2. Can keto help me normalize my cortisol levels so I can stop my progressive weight gain?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I had my metabolism tested with one of those at-home blood and saliva tests and it came back saying I have abnormally low cortisol. I tested myself because I have been rapidly gaining weight even though I follow a low-carb diet and exercise regularly. I’ll admit my low-carb diet up until lately has not been ideal because it is probably too low-fat and too high-protein. I now know better after reading Keto Clarity. Everything I have read about having low cortisol talks about it within the context of having Addison’s disease. I don’t have any other symptoms of Addison’s and I’m wondering why I’m having these low cortisol readings. Would a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet help remedy the cortisol issues? My objective is to be healthy, but I desperately want to stop gaining weight despite eating well. I have always been normal weight my entire life. Any insights you could give me are appreciated.

Thank you,

3. Is there any relationship between histamines and a positive benefit coming from consuming a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

Have you ever discussed the relationship between histamines and the role a ketogenic can play in helping with this issue? I’ve been having terrible itching and hives and my doctor put me on Zyrtec and Zantac. But I really don’t want to take medications for this if there is hope that keto, supplements, and lifestyle changes that can improve this. Thanks so much for your help with this.

– What can a Ketonian share with their non-keto primary care physician to encourage him to learn more about a low-carb, high-fat diet?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I'm fortunate enough to live in one of the best cities in the U.S. for health care—Houston, Texas where the Texas Medical Center is located. But even with all of the medical schools, doctors, and health professionals in this city, I have not yet been able to find a primary care physician who has adequate knowledge about keto within a reasonable driving distance of my home. Like most of us Ketonians, I will likely need to do what I can to educate my current primary care physician about the ins and outs of a low-carb, high-fat, keto approach. Do you have any suggestions about how I can begin this process with my doctor in the very limited 10ish minutes I have with him as a patient? What specific information can I convey to my doctor that would make a positive initial impression about keto to encourage him to learn more? What are the key points to underscore and what should I never NOT talk about because it would immediately trigger a negative response? Or is all of this an exercise in futility? Help!

Thank you for a great podcast.

Marsha

1. Why did my white blood cell count drop to “very low” levels since I went keto?

What can I do to raise it back up again? Hi guys, I love the show and especially love your passion for this topic. I have a question for you to address that is a bit concerning. My wife and I are both 55 years old and in very good health. We went Paleo a couple of years ago and became fully keto last year. My wife had blood work done recently that showed her white blood cell count was very low at 2.9. See below. In looking back at one of her pre-keto labs from 2015, her WBC was low at that time as well at 4.1. But now it has dropped into the "very low" range of 2.9 since going fully keto. Is there any relationship between being in a state of nutritional ketosis and low white blood cell count? Do you have any recommendations on how to boost her WBC? Should I increase my protein?

Thank you for all you do!

2. Why did I lose my period when I started eating keto?

Why is my skin still so dry despite eating a ketogenic diet? Dear Jimmy and Will, I thoroughly enjoy listening to Keto Talk. I’ve been eating this way for a few months and really feel great. I have always been sporty and active living at a healthy weight with a good diet. But I have suffered from multiple illnesses over the years, including orthostatic hypotension, hypermobility spectrum disorder, psoriasis, and very dry skin especially on my forearms and shins. Much to my amazement, since adopting a keto lifestyle, my balance has completely resolved after two decades of problems with this! Additionally, the psoriasis appears to be settling down. After listening to so many of your podcasts, I realize my multiple illnesses, 10 years of PTSD, and 8 concussions have caused some major inflammation in my body. So with all this context about me, here are my two concerns: Why have my periods stopped since going keto when I’ve always been regular before? Is this normal hormonal reaction and when should I expect it to restart? And why is my skin still very dry? Will it eventually clear up?

Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions.

3. Can you explain the relationship between insulin resistance and high calcium levels in easy-to-understand language?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole! I recently figured out that I have hyperparathyroidism (hypothyroid, but hyperPARAthyroid) because I kept having high calcium levels and ending up in the hospital with AFIB. I started searching everything I could about this condition and what could be contributing to it. Now I’m wondering if my continued insulin resistance and need for insulin despite being keto for several years might somehow be related. To my surprise, a search on hyperparathyroidism and insulin resistance brought up some interesting information on this very subject! Can you explain in everyday language what the connection might be between this condition and IR and if there is reason to have hope that this might play a part in my insulin resistance improving more now that I've had the bad gland removed? I'm only a couple of weeks out of surgery but other symptoms I was experiencing have already gotten much better! I'm just really hoping this will be yet another benefit and want to better understand how high calcium levels impact insulin resistance.

Thanks for your help!

Why did my voice change to sound like an old man since I started eating a ketogenic diet? Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole, You guys can count me as another person who has experienced vocal issues that have popped up since starting on the ketogenic diet. I started eating keto in July and by September I noticed my voice started sounding fuzzy like a very old man. You’ve briefly addressed this issue before stating that a common culprit is coffee consumption, but I don’t drink very much coffee and in fact a lot less of it since I switched to keto. I also don’t eat chocolate or peppermint. Any clue why I sound like the old guy in the Up movie?
