Has anyone else noticed that their eyes get very dry when in ketosis? And does anyone know of anyone natural ways to remedy this? I drink plenty of water and take in extra sodium for water retention.
I just realized today that this is cause by ketosis (for me) because I am just getting back into ketosis after a long bout of cheating over the holidays. It makes it especially tough because I am looking at a computer screen for most of my day (not Paleo, I knoooow)...but my eyes had not been dry since before my binge (when in ketosis).

Iodine Perhaps? There was a write up about this on the Jaminet's website stating basically that it was a mucus deficiency caused by a lack of glucose but I'm not so sure there are plenty of folks who eat LC and don't get this so I'd lean more towards iodine. I found this lecture insightful by Jorge Flechas at about the 6:10 mark he talks about iodine and the salivary glands.
Here's the PHD link as well:
