    This Time reacted to BLOOLOO in Aspartame, the next big scandal?   
    I was watching a few videos featuring a conference "Keto down under" on You tube
    In one of them, a Doctor whose speciality was MS, quoted that in recent years, 70% of referals to his clinic were not in fact due to MS, but Aspartame poisoning.
    me:diagnosed with severe "big league" diabetese type 2 with Keto acidosis In April. immediate max doses of alaglyptin and Metformin.
    7 days later a negligable drop in blood sugar, then at 20, a drop from a week before of 33+ (the max the meter wouuld show)
    Changed to Keto diet, ie eliminated ALL carbs to get under 10gs per day. Bread, rice, taties, pasta, everything.
    today, 3 months later, had the h1b test (3 months average blood) and i am registering NORMAL.  I took myself off all the meds when my Blood sugar measures were around 6 on average, about a week after avoiding carbs.
    Muscle has already returned to my arms (lost during the Ketoacidosis) and I have lost all my athletes foot, my liver spots are gone and I havent been ill at all with anything.
    Probably die next week.

    sugar begets insulin response because all you need is a teaspoon of it in ALL your blood.  After that, it poisons you, kills nerves, arterial sclerosis, fatty liver, and eye damage over time.  Once you get fat from all the insulin, you get insulin resistant and diabetic type 2.
    Add in Hydrogenated seed oils et voila, we have the 20th century death diets causing cancer, heart disease, diabetese and dementia.
    death in  bag.
    Which you cant do on a diet containing processed carbs...because they cause a chemical reaction in your body making you hungry all the time.

    Energy drinks.
    That, in my humble opinion is where the shit will hit the fan in a few years time. I cannot believe that people let their kids drink it. 
    I'd rather my kids had a beer than that shit.

    What I don't understand is why sugar is deemed safer than this. It's been proven to cause a plethora of health issues in higher doses. To say that refined white sugar is a natural product is pushing the definition a bit too. If anything it's unnaturally processed.

    Well the NHS did their level best to kill me. I was doing a water deprivation test for suspected diabetes insipidus (nothing to do with the sugar version). There are various prescribed stopping points that confirm diagnosis and stop the test as it would be dangerous to continue. I hit one 45 minutes on on the first test (serum osmolality of >300 [very dehydrated] with urine osmolality of <600). Instead of confirming diagnosis and stopping the test they decided their machine must be wrong so didn't tell me the result and continued to dehydrate me for a further three hours. I'm pretty sure they'd have kept going after that too but I insisted they called a stop to it after insisting they tell me the first result. They then refused to diagnose me because they didn't understand the test protocol so I'm left drinking 20L of water a day for who knows how much longer. I'm also pretty sure they damaged my kidneys leaving me that dehydrated for so long so I'm sitting in A&E (of a different hospital).

    It's about the tax base as much as anything. A worker on £20k does not pay enough tax to fund their own state services - they are fiscally negative. Importing more people who are fiscally negative, unsurprisingly, has fiscally negative effects on state services. This is why doctor's surgeries are rammed, council services have been cut to the bone, schools are rammed etc. 
    Importing £20k workers makes the country a shittier place. We need fewer £20k workers so the ones we do have are subject to wage inflation and productivity drives in order that they do not remain as £20k workers. Fewer people and a higher tax base is the key to happiness.

    You're probably better off setting up online banking with a long password made up of random characters that you make no note of (same for any security questions). Someone I know thought he was being clever by not having online banking but it turns out it can be easier for scammers to set up online banking on your account than get into an existing one.

    SEN needs?
    IIf the kids has no chance of getting a couple of GCSE then school is totally the wrong place for them. Put them in day care, which theyll need for the rest of their life.
    SEN is a massive make work for the teachers and support staff.
    EFL? Fuck that. Stop allowing migrants into the UK who cannot support themselves financially. Bill them for schooling cost. Deny hem benefits.
    Do those two things and you can reduce school spend by 30%.

    The problem is that the standard "healthy diet" is to the standard unhealthy diet as methadone is to heroin. You do fine on it because you've never been hooked on the heroin but getting someone onto that diet who's had a problem with the really bad stuff is highly unlikely to work long term because it's just keeping the cravings alive. If you're already eating a load of "healthy" carbs then having a doughnut doesn't seem like such a big deal, you can get back to the diet tomorrow. If you know it's going to kick you out of ketosis and make you feel like shit for a day or two then it's much easier to not eat the doughnut.

    So this update is a bit complicated. I'm still just eating meat. Dairy definitely causes inflammation for me, possibly including goat dairy andp eggs cause bloating, as does plant matter.
    It hasn't been the panacea that many people find it to be though. My pituitary appears to be struggling. I'm waiting for testing but it looks likely that I have diabetes insipidus which is a deficiency in or resistance to anti-diuretic hormone. I'm drinking 20 litres of water a day. All the water has been diluting my stomach acid which means I've had diarrhea all year which I was seeing as an inconvenience until it started causing hyponatremia and it turned out I'm deficient in some vitamins and minerals. Now that I've figured out the cause I seem to have got it under control with betaine hydrochloride supplements. I've also not had a period since March - not sure if that's the pituitary again or malnutrition from the low stomach acid. Feeling generally pretty tired - not sure if that's poor sleep quality due to waking up to use the loo multiple times a night, malnutrition, my pituitary not making something or all of the above. The NHS has been a mixture of slow, ineffectual and downright abusive. I found out by accident today that my consultant has retired which is particularly great since my GP surgery has decided I'm his problem and is denying me medical care.
