I just wrote a post about this condition here and wanted to see if anyone else here has experienced this as well.

It took me a while to really figure out what was going on, but I'm glad I did.

I hope this can help someone else out there!

Thank you for posting this and the excellent description of the illness. Since I am prone to developing skin rashes, this is one more to be aware of and, hopefully, solve before it goes too far.

Lately, I have tried to avoid eating in a way that would produce a lot of ketones and nutritional ketosis seemed to be too much work. Weight loss is not my priority and restricting protein to such a small amount left me with very little to eat. Ribeyes, burgers, and roasts are my main source of calories and I limit dairy. Dairy seems to trigger carbohydrate cravings, not counting the constipation factor that cheese presents.
