Ketosis and UTI Symptoms

Hi all! I've been doing NK for 15 days now and off and on I've had feelings as if I have a UTI. I think I drink plenty of water as its the only beverage I do drink other than 2 cups of coffee in the morning. Has anyone else experienced this feeling? Thanks.

Hi Tammy

When I first started I felt like I needed to go all the time~ glycogen dump.
If you have a fever or burning or lower back pain, I would call your MD.
Feel better

Tammy, I haven't had that problem.

Glycogen dump is an interesting idea.

Did you try an internet search on low carb and UTI?

Keep drink a lot either way, and go to doc if necessary. Good luck.

When I first started NK I had to get up in the middle of the night for almost two weeks to use the restroom. I figured it was just my body getting rid of the water weight. I never had any other symptoms of a UTI though. And the nightly trips to the restroom eventually stopped.

It's so funny you posted this, because I've been noticing the same thing and was thinking about asking on the board. It's only first thing in the morning when I wake up - I go to the bathroom, and have that UTI feeling like I still need to go. Always gone within an hour or 2, and then it's right back again the next morning. Sometimes it's so annoying that I take a couple of the OTC UTI pills to get rid of it more quickly.

It might be interstitial cystitis. It feels just like a UTI but no infection. It's just an inflammation or irritation of the bladder lining.

Thanks everyone. I have the feeling off and on. What causes the interstitial cystitis? TIA

I just read up on that this morning after tntne3 posted about it. It seems that doctor's aren't sure what exactly causes it, and there doesn't seem to be a "cure" for it either. Urology Care Foundation - Urology A-Z - Interstitial Cystitis

I had interstitial cystitis for a couple of years off and on, and found that a little baking soda dissolved in water made it go away pretty quickly. I must have read about it on the internet somewhere. I found that the baking soda made the attack go away, but that it would always come back later.

So I started juicing kale and other veggies, tried to make my body more "alkaline". And ACV. I must have read about that on the internet too. I consumed lots of veggies and juice (no fruit) for a few months. Anyway, I haven't had any more bouts with it in a couple of years, so the juicing must have helped!

Thanks for the tips, tntne3! I'll add some baking soda to the shopping list.
