Upcoming PET Scan

So, I have a PET Scan coming up on Dec. 23rd. I’m not worried about it, I just want to see what kind of progress has been made with reducing the cancer in my body. It is much easier to get an idea of what is going on with my axillary lymph nodes (ones in my armpit) because I can actually feel them. Figuring out what is going on in my liver is just a guess, no good way to tell until the PET Scan. I’m really enjoying all the low-carb, high-fat foods I get to eat. I don’t really feel “deprived” in any way. Yes, I do miss things sometimes, but I’d much rather stay healthy. I do know that I can have a bit of carby things every rare once-in-a-while.

  1. Hi.
    I have been thinking of you. Good luck with the PET.
    How is it going with the ketones?
    Sending warm thoughts and virtual hugs—

    1. Thanks. I’m still trying to keep them up, but even with only eating one meal, in the evening, I’m seeing ketones around 1.2 right before I eat. I’m planning on trying some ketone supplements in January. I really don’t have a good idea as to how to increase them, other than the supplements. My glucose generally stays pretty low (under 90), and usually under 100 (after eating).

      It’s rather frustrating trying to get my GKI down under 1 or 2 when I don’t have a consistent way to up the ketones. The people on the FB group don’t really seem to be in the same situation. It seems that most are coming at things from a weight/fat loss perspective, so they just don’t seem to get my concerns about wanting high ketones.

        1. I’ve got some ordered, arriving within the next 10 days. How much of a difference does it make for GKI if the ketones are exogenous or endogenous?
