Today is week two for me. I am experiencing slight gum bleeding and spots of pigment missing in areas of my skin. Can anyone enlighten me?

The gum issue does exist. It is not listed, at least not where I found it, on Dr Tran's website as a side effect but, when I researched ketosis and gum health or the variety of issues it comes up as a connected issue. It seems the ketosis can cause some people to become very dry mouthed and if they also are more prone to existing gum/dental health issues or higher levels of bacteria, this can cause more likelihood of a person experiencing receding gums, deeper gum pockets, and bleeding. The only suggestions I could find were discuss this and your diet with a dentist, be more vigilant with cleaning your gums and mouth, use a oral rinse/wash, use salt water rinses to strengthen gums, and drink more water.

I personally had my gums recede. I took a "break" of sorts this summer and noticed that they are returning to where they were so, with reasonable oral hygiene the issues may reverse themselves.


I am not sure what the loss of pigment is related to.
