Ketosis and Uric Acid Stones
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Ketosis and Uric Acid Stones?
hey guys dr. Burke here in this video we’re gonna talk about ketosis acids and stones okay so what do I mean by this well when you do a ketogenic diet ketones are more acid so you’re going to be releasing more acid through the body and you’re gonna be really seeing something called nitrogen to the body a little bit more than you would if you weren’t on a ketogenic diet but because certain parts of the body certain parts of the brain need a little bit of sugar your body is going to be also making a little bit of sugar from your dietary protein and dietary fat so we can make it some sugar it’s called gluconeogenesis okay not that you need to know that but so it’s actually going through both of these processes but you’re still not doing carbs you’re not getting carbs your body’s making carbs from the protein of fat and that just increases more nitrogen okay now there’s another compound the body called urea that comes out through the urine and that’s the needed is the main pathway to release this nitrogen so it could build up into higher levels of uric acid which can turn to gout but with interesting is if you’re gonna do a high carb diet and have high insulin you can also have high uric acid and get gout with that as well but here’s the thing normally stones are made from ox le’ts okay oxalate stones ninety percent of the time and only ten percent would be uric acid stones but in this situation with the high levels of nitrogen you can have up to 50% of the time it could be uric acid stones not oxalate stones so it’s not coming from ox let’s it’s coming from the uric acid alright so you didn’t really need to know that all you need to know is that if you’re on a ketogenic diet and you start to have sensations of gout or high levels of uric acid you want to do these things right here to prevent it okay and you probably already do in this video to worry about keeping your potassium high and I talked about this a lot in the videos from vegetables okay making sure your vegetables are large amounts of vegetables so if you’re doing the ketogenic diet and you’re not doing all the vegetables that would not be a good idea so you want to keep that high to counteract some of this waste product here and also if you need if you find that you’re not doing enough vegetables add more potassium citrate that’s the electrolyte that will counter this okay counter Scout it’s the remedy for gout so I want to explain one thing if your urine is too acid the uric acid crystals will not dissolve in acidic urine has to be a little bit more alkaline so taking the potassium citrate which is alkaline will help counter gout and help prevent these stones from happening okay but you can also get a potassium Fenton vegetables lemon juice is important why well the problem with lemon juice is that when you buy it in a bottle its pasteurized so they kill the vitamin C there’s not a lot of vitamin C in lemon juice just lemons but what you’re getting in lemon juice is the citrate which counters these right here so citrate that’s why you’d want to do that sea salt is very important too why because sea salt will counter the uric acid as well in fact in a ketogenic diet you need like one teaspoon of sea salt a day if you’re on a carb diet high carb diet you need about 1/4 of a teaspoon of salt per day okay also if you have a history of kidney stones it’s important to take vitamin k2 because vitamin k2 deficiencies are one of the main sources of kidney stones because of the buildup of soft-tissue calcium so if you have a history of kidney stones take the k2 just to make sure that that is not the source of your stones okay thanks for watching hey I just wanted to take a moment to thank you personally there’s so many of you that have gotten this book and the feedback that you’re giving me is mind-blowing thank you so much I really appreciate it if you wouldn’t mind I have one quick favor to put your unbiased review on Amazon I would really appreciate it thank you so much

Dr. Berg talks about higher levels of uric acid and uric acid stones. Because ketones are acidic and release more nitrogen as well as certain parts of your body needing glucose, more nitrogen is released. When your body makes glucose out of dietary protein and fat, this is called gluconeogensis. To the pathway to release this excess nitrogen is urea, in which you could end up with higher levels of uric acid crystals (gout). If your urine is too acid, it will be more difficult to dissolve these crystals. Higher insulin levels usually make higher levels of uric acid and gout, but the ketogenic diet can also do this…IF you do not consume enough potassium foods.
Normally, kidney stones are made from oxalates (90%), but on a ketogenic diet, you will have more uric acid stones (50% of the time).
1. Keeping your potassium high (vegetables).
2. Take potassium citrate
3. Lemon juice (because its citrates).
4. Sea salt (on a keto diet you need 1 tsp per day. If you are doing a high carb diet, you need 1/4th of a tsp.
5. Take vitamin K2 if you have a tendency of getting kidney stones as a K2 deficiency is a major cause of kidney stones.
In this video we are going to talk about ketosis, acids and stones. When you do a ketogenic diet, ketones are more acid so you are going to be releasing more acid to the body and you are going to be releasing something called nitrogen. A little bit more than you would if you are weren’t in a ketogenic diet. But because certain parts of the body or certain parts of the brain needs a little bit more of sugar, your body are also making a little bit of sugar from your dietary protein and dietary fat so it can make its own sugar, it is called gluconeogenesis.
