    Really worried about getting blood clots

    I've been on some articles today, they say that blood clots can be caused by this and they can be caused by that, one being that excess amount of carbs can cause blood clots. Is this true? I'm currently on a bulk and consuming 455 grams of carbs a day as one of the trainers at the gym and some articles online say that when you go on a bulk you should have about 5 grams of carbs per kg. Am wondering could this amount of carbs potentially give me blood clots in the future? I'm quite worried as I'm a guitar player and absolutely DO NOT want to give up guitar due to having to have one of my arms amputated due to blood clots. This would be a nightmare situation for me. So the question is does having 455 grams of carbs a day likely to cause blood clots in the future? For your info im 6 foot 3 and wight 91 kg. Thanks.

    I'm among the lesser-knowledgeable people when it comes to health and nutrition, but I think unless you're diabetic or obese already, this shouldn't be an issue at all. Carbohydrates themselves are in no inherent way unhealthy, and if you're leading an active lifestyle, not even likely to be excessive in high amounts.

    No one here is going to be able to tell you anything. That is a medical problem and only an MD will be able to draw blood and see if youre at risk.

    If bloodletting with leeches isn't your cup of tea, you can always sell your plasma. I had some mexican guy move into one of my places a few weeks ago with his "sister". She shows more boobs and ass than you would see on network television. He wanted to know where he could sell his plasma. I gave him $150 to fix a few things on a truck of mine. He's also a mechanic. I told him what needed done and he rattled off all the names of tools and socket sizes he would need to borrow from me.

    His "sister" was really intoxicated and fell off the running board of his truck and broke her ankle.

    I actually came across the opposite - that keto can lead to blood clotting due to spikes in bad cholesterol I think it said.

    The funny part is the OP isn’t scared to die or have a stroke. He is just scared he won’t be able to play guitar.

    I wonder if the Chris J in his username stands for Chris Janson the country artist. He was always fond of singing about the high carb blues.

    More likely to have a blood clot/amputation in one of your legs, so you're probably safe.

    There’s also concerns over too much fat and protein, aka calories in general. Not to mention, the specific kind of carbohydrate matters as well. I don’t think isolating the issue of overconsumption to carbs serves much of a purpose.

    “Too much” of anything is still “too much”, by definition.

    Single post user with a ridiculous question... guessing this is fake/trolling. However, for others on this thread.

    That's not a huge amount of carbs for an active person who's 6'3" tall.

    People probably throw micro emboli fairly often but their lungs filter them before they get to the left side of your heart and head to anywhere they'll cause problems.

    I asked my wife who is also a physician and works with eating disorders, and she'd never heard about any increased risk, which makes two docs who agree with you guys. Probably no significant risk of clotting due to a moderate carb increase.

    Doesn't mean there isn't any risk, but it would be hard to study. The majority of people with super high carb diets are probably obese and sedentary, so how would you set up your trial to look for something this rare. How would you control for confounding variables like that. You'd probably have to look retrospectively at a monster study like Framingham. Seems to me that if that correlation had showed up, it would be widely know. That said, I'm not going searching for articles right because I finished my spaghetti and it's time to sit on the couch and practice guitar.
    Could you define ______ for me, please?

    I have not come across any literature linking high carbs with blood clots. So make that a 3rd physician in addition to JustTheDad and his wife.

    Came across this or similar on multiple reputable sites.
    The AMDR requires quite a bit of nuance and should not be taken at face value. Many people go lower than 45% on carbs and are fine. There are macrobiotic diets that go higher on carbs and are also healthy. The quality of all the nutrients needs to be considered.
