Beware of Starvation Ketosis
Starvation ketosis is a serious condition that happens when your pregnant body is starved for nutrition, especially carbohydrates.
With starvation ketosis, your tissues begin to breakdown and the byproducts of this ketabolism are called ketones, which actually aggravate nausea.
To prevent starvation ketosis, try the following:
- Salty fluids, such as broths in chicken soup
- Oral electrolyte solutions (Pedialyte, available over the counter)
- Sports drinks
