    Well, this is a strange one, but could do with some advice.
    For the past, say 2 weeks I have got swollen gums. Not painful, but I am concious they are raised up a bit, like an infection, but like I say no pain. Has anyone else experience this?
    I am not concerned, but just thought I should mention it, incase it is something.

    Thx

    Is this just not that metallic taste we all get when in ketosis? My gums feel metalically and shiney since being on this diet.

    Hi Scotsmist, haven't noticed the swelling, but I do have that metallic taste which I hate. I did have swollen lips after eating the soup, some type of allergy, but only particular to the soup so one I stay off it and all is well. Hope all will be well soon.

    Thanks everyone....I dont seem to get the metallic taste any longer, just this swollen gum. I will maybe do an email to LT and see what they say. If not, I may make a visit to the dentist just in case! I was there the other week, so I know all is ok on that front, but you never know.

    Apart from that, all is well.......
