Dr. Sarah Hallberg: How do you fix diarrhea on a ketogenic diet?

How do you fix diarrhea
on a ketogenic diet? – Well actually diarrhea
is usually not something that we see regularly on a ketogenic diet. But of course everybody is different, and one of the main things
with the Virta Treatment is we wanna personalize it for everyone. So if any particular person has diarrhea, a few things that I would recommend. Take a look, did you just change anything in particular with your intake? Did you start adding some
artificial sweeteners such as xylitol, were there
other new foods that came in that you may be sensitive to? And one of the things may be
to try a short period trial of elimination of some of those new foods to see if you can pinpoint
a specific problem. Another thing that I would
look at is magnesium. Are you supplementing with magnesium, and if so, which kind? Different magnesiums can
have different effects on the GI system. Magnesium oxide, for example, can cause diarrhea in some people, whereas Slow-Mag, the
slow release magnesium, doesn’t tend to cause a problem here. So if you’re taking one of
the shorter acting ones, another thing to consider is changing to the slow release magnesium.

  1. I had my gallbladder removed in 2013 and I started keto 6 months ago and diarrhea and bowel problems are really annoying and I think I have to face the fact that keto is not for me

  2. What about people with No gallbladder IBS. I’m thinking the thumbs down are those who were hoping you’d have a solution for that. The only thing I was told after I stopped Keri. Was to try digestive enzymes tablets from a health food store. Problem is. I’m a little scared to start Neto again cause I don’t want to be chained to a toilet.

  3. only change was eating rehydrated seaweed salad for lunch 2 days in a row….seems very unusual. I will wait a day or two before having seaweed salad again!

  4. This is literally one of the most useless informational videos and it's almost like you guys just wanted to like let other people know you're doing the keto diet
