Marijuana Effects On Ketone Levels
How long does marijuana thc-cooh stay readable in a urin sample? Can the ng/ml level drop after 10 days
Depends on usage: Theoretically thc and its metabolites can be detected in a urine sample for up to four weeks after cessation of use. Specificity is set at 50 ng/ml. Anything higher is called positive. Not likely to see a significant drop before that time. Urine drug tests are not usually quantitative for thc, therefore, its reported positive if level is above 50ng/ml. ...Read more

I am not sure what these numbers mean. What are the units? Mmol/L? mEq/L? Who is measuring this, and why?
We all have ketones in our blood after fasting; carbs increase insulin and suppresses ketones, so a low carb diet induces mild elevations of ketones. This can sometimes cause nausea and other symptoms. Extreme elevations of ketones, as in uncontrolled diabetes, is dangerous. Consult your MD. ...Read more
If I took a drug test that showed I had a marijuana level of 111 would I be clean in seven days from the day I took the test and tested positive?
No: It depends on how often you use marijuana (thc). If it's only 1 time, your urine test may be positive up to 8 days or so. Urine remains positive for a longer time with frequency of use. For 2-4 times per month, your urine thc could be positive up to 3 weeks. For using 2-3 times/week, this becomes 23-35 days. With daily usage, it's 49-90 days. Hair remains positive for 90 days after using. ...Read more
Let me explain: In a person without diabetes, ketone production is the body’s normal adaptation to starvation. Blood sugar levels never get too high, because the production is regulated by just the right balance of insulin, glucagon and other hormones. However, in an individual with diabetes, dangerous and life-threatening levels of ketones can develop. ...Read more
Yes, possible: I found a 2004 study relating illicit drug use to mild kidney dysfunction. Creatinine increases were the most pronounced with Cocaine and psychedelics, but were also seen with other drugs -- including marijuana. http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/15042540 increased creatinine is one measure of kidney function -- so the risk of kidney disease is higher for drug-abusing people. ...Read more
