Ketones and papitations
I'm new to the forum and the VLCD. I started my diet 2 weeks ago: I lost 9lbs in week one and 6lbs last week - so quite happy!
I started picking up Traces of Ketones a week ago and according to Ketostix my levels are between trace and Fiable - as a result hunger pangs are a thing of the past, so that's all good.
I've just got a query and wondered if anyone has had a similar experience. Around the time the Ketones started to appear, I found that everyday tasks (e.g. my usual daily 30min walk) seemed like harder work - aching calf muscles and slight breathlessness when otherwise I'd have been fine. This has progressed slightly and it seem that just sitting up is sets my heart beating harder and I become breathless much more quickly. My BP is actually lower that it has been (according to my home testing) and my resting pulse is lower too.
I am seeing a Doctor later today, so I'll get checked out properly - I just wondered if anyone else had experienced anything similar?
