How To Avoid Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a possible complication of diabetes caused by extreme hyperglycemia, or high blood glucose. It is a serious and potentially life-threatening complication, one that you should work hard to avoid when you have diabetes. Diabetic ketoacidosis mainly affects people with type 1 diabetes, but it is a very rare possible complication for people with type 2 diabetes. Your doctor and certified diabetes educator will teach you how to recognize and manage diabetic ketoacidosis. It's critical to know and recognize the signs and symptoms of DKA, as well as how to treat it. What Is Diabetic Ketoacidosis? Diabetic ketoacidosis happens when your blood glucose level gets too high—usually higher than 300 mg/dL. Because people with type 1 diabetes do not have the insulin to process this extra glucose, their body cannot break down this glucose to create energy. To create energy for itself, the body starts to aggressively break down fat. Ketones or ketoacids are a byproduct of this process. Your body can handle a small amount of ketones circulating in your blood. However, the sizeable amounts from DKA are toxic.

    Hi everyone.
    This forum is great and I LOVE the 2KETODudes podcast.. Great job guys.
    I've been doing KETO for about 2.5 months. I wasn't (significantly) overweight (i'm 5'10 and was about 185lbs when I started), i'm healthy and quite active (train 4-6 days a week in Kung Fu, currently training for my Black Sash test in May 2017).
    I started Keto really for 2 reasons:
    - the health benefits I kept hearing about (read KETO clarity and listened to various pod casts)
    - and thought it would be a great way to help prepare me and fuel me during my Black Sash grading (that is typically 7-8 hrs long with only 2 short breaks for water only - no food or nutrition supplements)
    So the idea of being able to turn my body into a FAT burner to help me have an endless supply of energy during my very physically and mentally demanding Martial Arts grading seemed like a logical (and positive) choice.
    Things started very good.. I found the diet quite easy to adapt to (stopping my 1-2 banana a day routine was probably the hardest), and I found within a week, I had significantly more energy that lasted all day long and into the evening (my training often takes me to 10pm)
    Like i said, i wasn't really doing this to lose weight, although it wasn't bad that i actually did lose 10-15 lbs - that didn't hurt.
    The challenge, after about a month or so, I started feeling that although my energy and endurance was good, my strength (pushups, etc) was starting to decrease. Part of my requirements for my coming grading is strength requirements (85 push-ups of various styles and ~200 of various abdominal exercises)
    Am I Crazy? with the amount of training i'm doing, should i be having more Carbs? most of my carbs come from veggies and I'm typically very successful at keeping my daily carb intake to less than 50 grams/day.
    Should I start introducing more "good" carbs (fruits, starchy veggies) to help with strength and muscle growth? I'm just over 3 months away from my test and want to make sure I'm doing the right thing to keep (and regain) my strength while being about to take advantage of the benefits of Keto.
    Please help.
