- Am I getting severe leg cramps from my high-carb cheats or from working out my legs while in a ketogenic state?
Dear Jimmy and The Doc,
I have been low-carb/keto for the past two years. A few months ago I started getting pretty severe leg cramps that would wake me up at night. I lift heavy weights 2-3 days a week and I noticed I would tend to get the leg cramps a few hours after leg workouts. To help with the leg cramps, every night before bed I mix an electrolyte drink of 5g of magnesium, 1/4 tsp of salt and 1/8 tsp of potassium. I also try to have a cup of homemade bone broth daily and add more salt to it as well. When I drink the electrolyte drink daily, my leg cramps do not occur.
Whenever I have any sort of high-carb cheat meal, within an hour or two I get severe leg cramping. I have been strict keto of 20g total carbs and moderate protein of between 60-90g since March 2017. I have tested my blood ketones and I am getting readings of 0.5-0.8 mmol. I cheated last Sunday on Easter chocolates and three hours later I had severe leg cramps yet again. I also just returned from a two-day hiking event and took my electrolyte supplement both days.
I am sore today but do you think the leg cramps is from the hiking or the high-carb load? I just find it suspicious and almost predictable that if I cheat, the leg cramps come on. Any insight is appreciated.

1. Can a ketogenic diet help delay the onset of hair loss from Male Pattern Baldness?
I'm a little embarrassed to say that I've only really discovered podcasts in 2016. I guess I'm just old-school for a 29-year-old. Since discovering your podcast, it has literally taken center stage in my life. Thank you for ALL the incredible answers, insights, and obvious passion for keto! You really keep me and my fellow Ketonians inspired! My question for you is about Male Pattern Baldness. I've come to understand that through ketosis, testosterone levels go up, so could being in ketosis beginning in my 20’s with no signs of hair loss yet actually prevent hair loss? Is there any research about this?
Thanks for all your wisdom on all things keto!!!

2. Can eating keto produce a false elevated white blood cell count?
Hello Jimmy & Doc Nally,
I enjoy your show and am learning so much from you guys after being keto for a couple of years. I wanted to ask you about something my family doctor has brought to my attention over the past year or so. He has told me three times that I have a raised white blood count. He initially thought that I might have a bladder infection. I had no symptoms of illness, so this shocked me to hear this from my doctor. Is there any connection between eating keto and having a false elevated white blood cell count? Have you ever seen this before?
Thanks for your help with this question and I look forward to a lot more Keto Talk!

3. Can you go into more details about why some Ketonians deal with a pounding irregular heart rate and corresponding sleep issues?
Hello Jimmy and Dr. Nally,
Back in Episode 37, you answered a question about heart rate and sleep. But the answer did not identify the problem nor did it give a solution. I am having the same irregular pounding of my heart and sleep loss since I started keto. Normally you guys do research and give an answer that explains the cause behind the issues asked about and then you share what to do about it. But it seems like you swept the problem under the rug and gave a ”there's something else going on" response. But I’m sure a lot of other people have this problem and it deserves a real answer. I live keto and won't go back to my previous diet, but I still want to solve the pounding irregular heart rate and sleep problems since going keto.
Thank you for all your help and energy spent to spread the keto message,

- Is there a way to quantify the amount of ketones being burned and used by the body? What percentage of ketones go to the various parts of the body?
Hey Jimmy and Adam,
Loved meeting you guys at the Metabolic Therapeutics conference in Tampa, Florida earlier this year. I wanted to ask a question about how to quantify the ketone bodies being produced at any given time. The problem with testing blood ketones is it only gives you a snapshot of the ketones being produced in the blood, but not necessarily what is being burned at any given moment. Over time once you become keto-adapted, beta-hydroxybutyrate levels decrease ostensibly because they are being used more efficiently. In other words, a 1.0 mmol blood ketone reading of something who has been eating keto for a couple of years might actually be identical to a keto newbie getting a reading of 6.0 mmol. So, how can we measure the amount of ketones being burned and their distribution to the various parts of the body, especially the brain? Is there any way to know what percentage of ketones go to the various functions in the body?
I look forward to hearing what you have to share about my questions.
