Frequently Asked Questions
Keto Physicians Network
Can work with my own doctor?
Keto5 believes that the "optimum ketosis" for each patient must be tailored to their individual health needs. This is the principal reason why Keto5 products are available only through physicians and other allied healthcare professionals. Our Keto5 Medical Network actively seeks to engage physicians to join, acquire knowledge and training to become an expert at medical ketosis. Your personal physician if not already a member of our network is welcome to join and may contact us and a Keto5 team member will guide your doctor or allied healthcare professional to becoming a member of our network.
If you do not have a physician you may contact us and a member of our team will recommend a physician in your local area. Keto5 also offers a telemedicine option to speak with one of our physicians.
Who’s in the Keto5 medical network?
The Keto5 medical network is comprised of US licensed physicians who have completed the Keto5 medical network training program and understand the optimization of ketosis in healthcare. These individuals are in both primary care and subspecialty care as well as other allied healthcare professionals including psychologist, psychotherapist, sports physiologist, physical therapy and rehabilitation medicine.
Is the consultation covered by my insurance?
In most cases your office visit laboratories and testing are
covered to the extent of your own personal insurance plan or through your
employer. Keto5 supplement products are not typically covered however
prescription medication recommended by your physician will be covered in
accordance with your medical plan benefits.
Is this good for people with Type 2 Diabetes?
Type 2 diabetics generally do very well with Keto5 medically supervised weight loss and optimize ketosis program. Patients often in addition to losing weight will reduce their medication requirements including reductions in their diabetes medication as well as laboratory and blood measurements improvement. Type 1 insulin dependent diabetics are excluded from the Keto5 program as well as any diabetics taking SGL2 inhibitors.
Can I still eat pizza every once in a while?
Keto5 products promote "Nutritional ForgivenessTM" which means that after a keto adaption having modest amounts of carbohydrates and sugars allow "optimized ketosis" to be maintained by drinking our exogenous ketone products such as XOGenius.
How long does it take to get into ketosis?
Getting into ketosis can be highly variable when using a ketogenic diet as the only means to transition to ketosis. Keto5's product can shorten that process and potentially get a patient into ketosis in as little as 40 minutes.
Can I do this while training for a marathon?
Runners know, carbohydrates are the primary fuel. However, with carbohydrates—the body just can’t store enough for the whole race. Marathon runners end up hitting the wall, or “bonking,”. Once you run out of carbohydrates, your ability to produce energy drops dramatically and you have to slow down. Cutting-edge exercise physiology research has suggested that taking “exogenous ketones” as a supplement might allow your body to lean more heavily on ketones during exercise, without having to restrict your carbohydrate intake.
Are fruits and veggies OK to eat?
Fruits that are high in fructose can affect the ketosis level. Fruits such as oranges, watermelon, pineapple mango and other high sugar containing fruits should be avoided or significantly reduced. Other fruits such as blueberries, kiwis or raspberries contain high antioxidants and less sugar therefore more desirable in a optimized ketogenic diet.
Green vegetables that grow upward from the ground are often the best for ketosis. Spinach, asparagus, and kale are examples of high antioxidant beneficial vegetables. Root vegetables such as carrots, beets, daikon, and yams that contain high carbohydrates and sugars should be avoided.
