    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?

    I havent noticed any of this tbh. Ive actually found myself.with more energy and can catch my breath back quicker than my jogging partner. Hope your doc gives you some answers.
