Default Anxiety and Panic Attacks

For anyone who has anxiety and panic attacks...

Have you found that your anxiety and/or panic attacks gotten worse or better with being on a diabetes treatment?

Has eating Keto foods changed your levels of anxiety or your panic attacks?

I get rid of one variable by not being on insulin or a medication. But I still find it hard to say.

I will say this: I was on anti-anxiety meds before I started eating LCHF/keto (tapered them off shortly before my "serious" T2 Dx, under medical supervision) and have felt no need to start with them again after a year-plus of eating LCHF. So I guess my anxiety level has not increased.

In fact, if anything, going LCHF/keto got rid of that immediate "I-gotta-eat" anxiety I used to get when my BG dropped from its higher pre-treatment levels. So there's that.

It is hard for me to know for sure. If I acknowledge that I have metabolic syndrom, then all my problems are related. Therefore, reducing or improving any of my problems is likely to have a direct and an indirect influence on my other conditions.

So to answer your question, yes, eating keto and reducing anxiety are both happening at the same time. I just don't know what sort of conclusions that I should make except that I'm happy about it.

I asked the question because for the past 2+ weeks I've been having such anxiety, it was leading to some massive panic attacks. I had my Dr give me an update on my anxiety Rx, but it didn't seem to help.

I looked up some info online about Welbutrin, and it seems that it can CAUSE anxiety and panic attacks, as well as subdue them. So, I guess I've gone full circle from them helping, to them causing it!

I stopped taking them a few days ago, and my anxiety has lessened a great deal, the panic attacks went away, and my heart stopped feeling like an alien was going to burst out of it.

Ugh. Which means I have to start testing out new Rx's for anxiety now.

And I did notice also, that when I was only eating Keto foods, I didn't have much anxiety or panic attacks of any kind.

I've lived with anxiety all my life. Luckily, I don't get panic attacks that often. I've learned to cope with my anxiety but since I've gotten older, I noticed that it was getting worse. So, I got on meds for the anxiety, but when I was diagnosed with T2, I stopped taking them. I just didn't want to be on so many meds because I knew that eventually, I was going to be on HBP and cholesterol meds. I haven't noticed anything differently. My anxiety is what it is. Sometimes, it's right up there, and other times, I don't even notice it.
