    I started keto two weeks ago and started feeling unwell and I checked my blood pressure and it was 194/122 needless to say that same day I was experiencing awful spasms and all body cramps, I took potassium and magnesium and my cramps are gone but my blood pressure is uncontrollable, why is it so high being on keto, I do suffer from high blood pressure and take four meds to control it, but on keto the meds just dont work ❗❗❗❗

    What if your blood pressure drops too low (specifically the dystolic) on a keto diet? Does salt intake help with that?

      alejandro escarcega that’s what i’m doing now i also added carbs. In ketosis we lose sodium in urine, we have electrolyte imbalance. So adding carbs to the diet would make the body switch from using ketones to glucose for energy
