Here are some possible side effects of ketosis that one may experience:
1. Keto Flu: The most common side-effect is fatigue which is also known as keto flu particularly for people on the keto diet. Keto diet is a low-carb diet which may cause headache, fatigue, nausea, poor sleep, and dizziness. These issues often discourage people from putting on the keto diet.
2. Cramps: Leg cramps are quite common among people on a keto diet. Leg cramps are often caused by dehydration as well as a loss of minerals. A low-carb diet often flushes out glycogen a type of glucose in liver and muscles that binds water.
3. Digestion problem: Dietary changes can upset the digestive system. Keto-diet beginners may experience constipation due to water loss.
4. Elevate heart rate: heart palpitations and racing heartbeat are common among people on a keto diet. Low salt intake is said to be the cause of elevated heart rate.
Ketosis is a rigorous yet natural way to burn excess fat from the body. Your body may not like to be in ketosis as you experience frequent urge to urinate, nausea, fatigue, dehydration, and other health issues. These issues fade away in a few weeks and your body starts feeling better than ever.

    Some people think that ketosis is extremely dangerous. However, they might be confusing ketosis with ketoacidosis, which is completely different. While ketoacidosis is a serious condition caused by uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a natural metabolic state. This doesn’t have much side effects if it is done in a proper and controlled way under the guidance of an expert.
