Chapter 8: Acid-base Imbalances Multiple Choice

Because the blood pH is acidic, the condition is an uncompensated state of acidosis. A fruity, acetone smell to the breath likely indicates the presence of ketones. People with type I diabetes may begin to form elevated levels of ketones in certain situations. Ketones are acidic, leading to Carl's state of uncompensated metabolic acidosis. Read each clinical scenario and then drag and drop the suspected acid-base imbalance that is best exemplified by that scenario. May was diagnosed with COPD 7 years ago. She presents with rapid respirations, cyanosis, and tachycardia. She recently had an upper respiratory infection. Her blood pH is acidic. Medical intervention, including respiratory stimulants and bronchodilators, helps stabilize May's breathing and arterial blood gases. Blood pH returns to the normal range. May's symptoms, lab findings and history point to ______________________. In this case, as blood pH has returned to the normal range, the acid-base disorder would be considered as "compensated." Initial pH was listed as acidic and issues such as recent upper respiratory infection and prior COPD diagnosis point to a respiratory condition. Taking all of this into account, Miche Continue reading >>

    Hello everyone. I am on ketogenic diet for 2 months. I am not diabetic. My body mass index is 24.7 and my health is very good. I chose the ketogenic diet because I am convinced that this is the healthiest one. But for the last week or so I start by curiosity check my blood sugar and I am really surprised. Just let me tell you I am in full keto adaptation and my blood ketones is around 2.7 as average. My glucose when fasting in the morning is 6 to 6.1 mmnol/l (108 to 110 mg/dl). I read many articles about the insulin physiological resistance but I am little suspecious. I mean high blood sugar increase the risk of cardiovascular disease whether it comes from insulin resistance or physiological insuline resistance. I am little hesitating whether to continue with this diet or return back to regular one. Anyone can help me?

    If you are concerned about blood glucose, I suggest you see a doctor for an A1C test (levels over 3 months) which is far more accurate than the fasting number.
    At the same time, my experience may help you deal with this. I am not diabetic, but my fasting numbers are typically high (low 90s--lab limit is 120), but my A1c is typically about 5.2, well within normal.
    I've read that a ketogentic diet will produce higher fasting numbers, and my endo says that this is true--which is why he goes by my A1c. I'm hypothyroid, which is why I get regular blood tests, and since all my siblings are Type 2 diabetics, my endo keeps his eye on my BG.

    Thx Leo for reply. But high glucose increase the risk of cardiovascular disease whether your A1c is normal or not.
