    Hello everyone,

    Just need some advice really... I've got a very sore throat and ear ache - was up half the night coughing... :(

    I know we can't take conventional medicine whilst on LL coz of the high sugar content etc, so have gargled with salt water and aspirin this morning... but just wondering if it is ok to take a vitamin C tablet???

    I had a quick look at the ingredients and they seemed ok but then I didn't want to take something that might contain citric acid by another name and kick me out of ketosis!!!!

    Does anyone know whether it is ok to take vit C tablets or if there is any particular shop / brand which is ok??

    Thanks for your replies xxx

    Vit C is Ascorbic acid, I'm not sure if it will be ok or not, but I think it is

    You poor thing, I had the same thing a couple of weeks ago and my LLC said to go to Boots and ask the pharmacist for something diabetic friendly. They gave me a Beachams product which did the trick. If in doubt just go for whatever is sugar-free.

    My LLC said last night that we can take extra vitamins if we need to, as some people need more.So should be ok.
