    I have been on Lipo for 4 weeks and am very impressed with weight loss.

    For about 4-5 days i have been experiencing intermitent pain in my kidneys. I am doing the right things re water etc.
    My chemist says its potassium loss. Has anyone else suffered this? I am reluctant to re-feed and stop LT as i want to lose another 14lbs or so . Obviously, my long term health is more important. However, I don;t want to stop now if this is just a temporary blip.

    any views would be gratefully received. thanks

    I have not suffered any Kidney pains so far on the diet. However, i would be very careful as Ketosis can cause kidney and liver damage Ketosis Definition - Health encyclopaedia - NHS Direct I don't know if you should see your doctor. I know you are reluctant to stop but don't ruin your health in the mean time.

    I hope it's nothing serious and you will be ok

    No way you have done damage in 4 weeks! That report also says you get fruity breath - not how I would describe it :D

    I has kidney pain when i was on LT think it was within the first 2-3 weeks , i got told by my weigh in lady that it was probably due to drinking a bit to much water , so i cut down on the water (by like one bottle) a day and it did ease .

    speak to your weigh in lady or man when you next get weighed .

    hope that helps !

    I got kidney pains too...I put it down to drinking too little water. It normally goes once I drink a glass.

    Hiya, if you are worried about anything medically related then either call NHS Direct or pop and see your GP for his/her advice, always best to get checked out by a medical professional and then you'll be safe and sorted :)

    Boht high or low potassium levels can cause major medical problems. If you are the concerned, ask your GP to check it out.

    I have been getting lower back/kidney area pains, and physio said that rapid weight loss can cause lower back to ache as its getting used to a new posture.

    best to get it checked out, might be muscular. call LT and speak to doc/nurse/pharm anyway.

    and princess is right - changes in potassium can be REALLY dangerous!

    never self medicate, one of the ladies i care for was in hosp for 4 weeks when her potassium went too high!

    good luck
