Interesting experience over the past couple of days. I had a dental procedure done on Thursday, May 30, between 11:45 am to about 1pm. This involved injection of local anesthetic into my upper right gum on both sides of a molar. This is the first time I have had a local while in ketosis.
I’ve never had any adverse reaction to dental anesthetics in my life and I did not have any obvious reaction to this most recent episode. But I think my ketosis had a reaction.
Within an hour of completion of the dental procedure, my BrAce dropped lower than my normal range and stayed at the lower range for the next 48 hours - Jun 1 at 2 pm. It has gone up again to my normal range, but I had to give it some help by eating raw ginger last night before going to bed and eating some coconut oil today at work. I’ll see how it goes for the next couple of days.
Does anyone have any similar experience with dental local anesthesia? Or does anyone have any cited info about possible affects of local anesthesia on ketosis? Thanks.
