I started going for breakfast everyday for eggs and bacon, about a 20 min walk. Same distance for a grocery store where I bought salad greens, some meat and cheese. And wow all of a sudden, my blood sugar was down from to 8-12. I was monitoring my blood sugar and did need to eat some sugar a few times, when out walking, to not go too low. Typical breakfast in hospital was 1/2cup tangerines in syrup, banana, muffin or bagel, cereal w/skim milk, juice, 1oz of cheese and one egg?
B-OHB and acetoacetate are produced by the liver from long and medium chain fatty acids and released into the bloodstream. How, exactly, does our body take pyruvate or acetyl CoA and generateso muchATP? The answer lies in the beauty of the Krebs Cycle, which feeds into a process called the electron transport chain , I alluded to above. What the ETC does give up, as its name suggests, is electrons.

Lately though I have had minor frontal cortex headaches, which I could get to go away if I ate a high salt meal, but it would return before I wanted to eat again. Next, I would have stomach gases, again relieved by eating. And what may be considered frequent urination, but I drink three plus liters of water a day which is what I thought was the cause.
