If you're worried about blood glucose levels, it's cheap enough to buy a glucometer and a pack of 50 strips. Test yourself before you eat, an hour after, and two hours after. Also test yourself right after you wake up and right before you... (more)

Ok, I was a bit busy during the day, got into the flow of things and forgot to take fish oil. Tried to make it up and took 3g of EPA/DHA right before bed around 10pm. Now it's 02 am (Hong Kong time) and although I have taken Seriphos which usually... (more)

Okay, I have asked a similar question before. And so have others. But hopefully this is simpler/more refined/more specific. Since going low carb my pulse is stronger. Ive been low carb for 2 months, at now around 55-65 grams a day. At night, in... (more)

I have some of the same symptoms. I saw my doc today and she told me it can be due to a magnesium deficiency, or related to another electrolyte imbalance. I'm having bloodwork done, but supplementing with Magnesium couldn't hurt.

I keep hearing that TV, internet, and even reading is not the best thing to do before bed. I get the rationale that stimulation can cause cortisol release, disrupted sleep etc. However, after my wife and I put the kids down we only have about... (more)

Low carb is often bad for the naturally thin. You CAN gain fat from eating high-fat, low-carb, high-cal. I've done it too (but I am a girl, skinny, lean, and pear-shaped - I want more fat gain). Insatiable hunger is common for leaner people... (more)

Does your son eat paleo? I have read that it helps with autism in some cases.

You could try the Seth Roberts method of stand on one leg: http://blog.sethroberts.net/2011/03/22/effect-of-one-legged-standing-on-sleep/ He had the exact same issue as you, waking up far too early. Also bear in mind our sleep is naturally... (more)

It's actually natural to wake up once in the night. It always happens in experiments where people don't have clocks and rely on the sun to know when to go to sleep. Just occupy yourself for an hour and go back to sleep.
