Joint British Diabetes Societies Guideline For The Management Of Diabetic Ketoacidosis.

Abstract The Joint British Diabetes Societies guidelines for the management of diabetic ketoacidosis (these do not cover Hyperosmolar Hyperglycaemic Syndrome) are available in full at: (i) (ii) (iii) This article summarizes the main changes from previous guidelines and discusses the rationale for the new recommendations. The key points are: Monitoring of the response to treatment (i) The method of choice for monitoring the response to treatment is bedside measurement of capillary blood ketones using a ketone meter. (ii) If blood ketone measurement is not available, venous pH and bicarbonate should be used in conjunction with bedside blood glucose monitoring to assess treatment response. (iii) Venous blood should be used rather than arterial (unless respiratory problems dictate otherwise) in blood gas analysers. (iv) Intermittent laboratory confirmation of pH, bicarbonate and electrolytes only. Insulin administration (i) Insulin should be infused intravenously at a weight-based fixed rate until the ketosis has resolved. (ii) When the blood glucose falls below 14 mmol/l, 10% glucose should be added to allow the fixed-rate insulin to be continued. (iii) If already taking, long-acting Continue reading >>

    Lifting weights is more important than cardio, but like me you can add cardio to help excellerate weight loss. Also, make sure you are drinking lots of water. Showing large amounts of ketones isn't always good and make sure you don't go over that. You can do Keto for as long as you want. You can do it to reach your goal and then slowly introduce more carbs into your diet or you can do it for long term. There are some people that have been doing Keto for years with no long term effects besides weight loss and not being overweight.

    do keto for as long as u like, im bulking on it, and intend to live on it for the rest of my life. if ur trying to cut fat without loosing muscle, make sure u eat minimum 1gram of protein per lb of LBM per day, and just keep a calorie defecit, thats all u need to do. keep ur macros 65/30/5 and take a multivitamin. it really is that simple
    as to how long u should do it for.......in my opinion, forever, keto life rocks...and its easier to KEEP the fat off on keto as opposed to going bak to 40 40 20 or whatever. but u can jump bak out anytime u like
