Clinically, DKA and HHS differ only by the degree of dehydration and the severity of metabolic acidosis. Both require prompt diagnosis and treatment. According to the American Diabetes Association, DKA accounts for more than $1 of every $4 spent on direct care for adult patients with Type I diabetes, and $1 of every $2 spent on patients experiencing multiple morbidities.1 In the United States, approximately 145,000 hospitalizations occur for DKA each year with an average cost of $17,500 per patient.2 The direct and indirect total annual cos Continue reading >>

    Does anyone know of a decent but simple keto calc? A couple I've tried baffle me, and an easier one I tried told me to lose 2lb a week I needed to consume 751 calories a day!!
