Diabetic Ketoacidosis

As fat is broken down, acids called ketones build up in the blood and urine. In high levels, ketones are poisonous. This condition is known as ketoacidosis. Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is sometimes the first sign of type 1 diabetes in people who have not yet been diagnosed. It can also occur in someone who has already been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Infection, injury, a serious illness, missing doses of insulin shots, or surgery can lead to DKA in people with type 1 diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes can also develop DKA, but it is less common. It is usually triggered by uncontrolled blood sugar, missing doses of medicines, or a severe illness. Continue reading >>

    Hi! Let me cut right to the chase: You will die. I’ll get back to that in a bit.
    The body needs water. Clear filtrated, water. This water helps not only your cells, but all your body organs. It helps regulate your body functions and water in your body gets used up by the things that come naturally like breathing, walking, running and aiding digestion. Soda has water, yes. But that is not all it has.
    Soda has other ARTIFICIAL ingredients added to it that will set your body in a tailspin and deregulate it from it’s natural processes and functions. This also goes for “Natural”, “Organic” and “Diet” labeled sodas. Any soda ingredients you choose wont list this only : Water, carbonated natural spring water. There’s the color, the flavoring, the preservatives and these things will add up and kill you. If you drink this only, your body will shut down.
    And before I finish, let me say something about juices: No, don’t buy those and drink those only either. They are full of added INGREDIENTS, just like sodas. You will hardly find juice that says” Water, carbonated natural spring water. You will find this on almost all of them:
    Carbonated water.
    High fructose corn syrup and/or sugar.
    Citric acid.
    Sodium benzoate (preservative)
    Food starch-modified.
    Natural and Artificial flavors.
    Caffeine.

    Glycerol ester of wood rosin.
    “Made from concentrates” juices aren’t going to save you either because it will contain sugar, high fructose corn syrup and some acids. For the juice route, it’s better to get a juicer and make your own juice out of fresh veggies. Even with pure fruit off the vine fruit, be careful because it contains natural sugar that, taken in large doses, can be just as harmful.
    Back to: what happens if you only drink soda and drink no water? You will die as I wrote but let’s say before you do, I want to give you a chance. Let’s imagine you drank only soda or soda and juice. This is what will happen: you start to feel bad. Your head hurts, your stomach hurts, your hot, you want to sleep, you want to make your room 100 below zero, your throat is killing you; and you’ll want to drink water. You start to drink it, but you won’t be able to get enough and you’re really, really weak. This is bad. This is your two minute warning play. You’re actually going into ketoacidosis. You’ve messed up your body’s production of insulin. If it’s caught early, all you’ll do is collapse and go into a coma that you may or may not get out of depending on how soon you can get medical help. They will pump your body full of insulin, force and drip fluid solutions into you to revive you, to get your organs to respond. Your organs are all messed up now, especially your kidneys, your heart, your pancreas, your liver, your eyes…IF… you come out of this, you may have to take insulin and some other drugs for the rest of your life and eat a regulated diet to continue to live because...you really didn’t give your body what it needed.

    Just know: it’s not worth it. Not even for a little while. Drink water and keep it as a regular part of your daily food intake and diet.
