– Is there any connection between HIV medications and the expected benefits of a ketogenic diet?
Hey Jimmy and Will,
I listen to your podcasts everyday and I think you guys are awesome speakers. I'm kinda desperate for some answers as I am HIV positive taking HAART (Genvoya) and have lost 13 pounds rather easily eating keto. I love this way of eating, but for some reason while I'm in ketosis I just don’t feel right. I tried it for several weeks and even kept my salt/potassium/magnesium intake up to help balance my electrolytes. Being on a ketogenic diet, I’ve noticed my sleep get deeper after I used to deal with insomnia regularly. During ketosis I slept like a baby...almost too deep of a sleep if that's possible because my head is swimming all day after waking up from this. Is there some metabolic issue with the HIV medications I am taking that could be preventing me from getting the cognitive and energy benefits of ketones? For now, I'm just eating low-carb but avoiding ketosis because of these negative effects.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!

1. Does a high-fat diet disrupt the mucous gut barrier and change the role the microbiome plays in the body?
Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,
Bestselling author Sylvia Tara writes on page 120 of her book The Secret Life of Fat that "the mucous gut barrier can be disrupted by a high-fat diet." She quotes Dr. Patrice Cani, a researcher, who implies that high-fat diets change the microbiota composition by disrupting gut microbiome function. Should we Ketonians be concerned about this? I checked Dr. Google, but that only confused me more. Can you share what this is about?
Thanks for all the great information!

I'm a 25-year old guy that started doing keto about a week and a half ago and over the past three days my heart has been racing. I usually have a resting heart rate around 55-60 bpm, but when I started eating keto it jumped up to around 75 bpm. I've been doing a lot of research on this and most of what I'm finding deals with electrolyte imbalances. I have been salting my foods with pink Himalayan sea salt, using lite salt for potassium, and magnesium. How long does it usually take to rebalance all the electrolytes when all of these things are being dumped at the beginning of keto so my heart rate will return to normal? And should I be doing high intensity exercise while my body is still adjusting to keto or would that make this issue worse? I'm starting to get a little worried about it.
3. Can keto help endometriosis? Will food allergies prevent me from going keto? If dairy is estrogenic, should I avoid them if I have high estrogen?
Hi Jimmy and Will
I have several questions for you guys to answer. Is keto effective for people dealing with endometriosis and endometriosis chocolate cysts (endometriomas)? I already know that I have a moderate intolerance (which means I can only have them every 4 days) to eggs whites, cow's milk, whey, coconut and avocado. I know most people just suspect they are intolerant, but I did blood tests that confirm it. Would these food allergies prevent me from going keto? I’ve heard that dairy is inflammatory for the body and can carry extra estrogens, so should women with high estrogen avoid dairy altogether?
Thank you for addressing these for me.

– How is it possible for A1c to fall into a healthy range while fasting insulin precipitously rises?
I am a devoted listener and have found so much information useful to me on my health journey. I am a very active, very trim 5'6" 115-pound woman who is 55 years old living in the Colorado forest. For as long as I can remember, I have been eating a ketogenic diet for 6 months of the year (during the fall and winter) for most of my adult life and have gone fully keto year round the past two years. I drink wine from Dry Farm Wines but no other alcohol. My question is about some blood test results that have me scratching my head about what to make of it. I do regular home A1c tests and I’ve noticed it drop from 5.8 down to 5.0. Perfect response on keto. But when I had my insulin checked over that same time period, I noticed it has risen from 8 to 15 in just six months while eating keto. How is this possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
