RBBB: A right bundle branch block is a delay in electrical activaton of the right side of the left ventricle. This delay leads to a characteristic ECG pattern that is quite commonly seen. Unlike a left bundle branch block, the rbbb is rarely associated with CAD and can even be seen normally in very young patients. Check with your doctor about the finding in association with any other findings found.

Ketones: The diet is low in carbohydrates leading to the body using fat rather than sugar as fuel. The breakdown of fat leads to the production of ketones. The higher ketone level is removed through an osmotic diuresis via the urine. The higher urine production is die to the ketosis produced by the diet.

Rhythm not Blockage: Palpitations or skipped beats can be caused by irritable areas in the heart that disrupt normal electrical conduction. While coronary artery blockage can cause this, it certainly can occur in the absence of blockage.
