very very very interesting article herehttp://www.phschool.com/science/science_news/articles/ketones_to_the_rescue.html
I have been on a near-ketogenic diet since wednesday - as expected have lost 2 litres of excess water (2kg weight loss). oedema has decreased significantly and breathlessness improved.stopped water tablet. walking improved as ankles less sore.
blood pressure ok. less sleepy during day.
had been eating lots of sugar and putting on 1kg every month or two so had to do something.
glucose not available for brain cells in pd
sn cells die off
ketones replace glucose so cells remain active and pd slows
brain works better with required energy supply
sugar craving may be an effect of glucose problems
best source of ketones: coconut oil, palm oil, butter, goat/sheep cheese
concerns: heart conditions, constipation
THIS IS NOT A RECOMMENDATION ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE HEART PROBLEMS
