Diabetic Ketoacidosis Symptoms

What is diabetic ketoacidosis? Diabetic ketoacidosis, also referred to as simply ketoacidosis or DKA, is a serious and even life-threatening complication of type 1 diabetes. DKA is rare in people with type 2 diabetes. DKA is caused when insulin levels are low and not enough glucose can get into the body's cells. Without glucose for energy, the body starts to burn fat for energy. Ketones are products that are created when the body burns fat. The buildup of ketones causes the blood to become more acidic. The high levels of blood glucose in DKA cause the kidneys to excrete glucose and water, leading to dehydration and imbalances in body electrolyte levels. Diabetic ketoacidosis most commonly develops either due to an interruption in insulin treatment or a severe illness, including the flu. What are the symptoms and signs of diabetic ketoacidosis? The development of DKA is usually a slow process. However, if vomiting develops, the symptoms can progress more rapidly due to the more rapid loss of body fluid.

    One day of eating carbs will abruptly end ketosis. Ketosis will probably end within a few hours of eating a carbohydrate rich meal. It'll probably take you a few days or even another week of eating low carb to get back into ketosis, because when you start eating carbs again, your body will store the unused glucose as glycogen (and fat) and then once the glycogen is depleted, ketosis will be in full swing.
    6 pounds in a week is a lot though, and I think most of it is water weight. You'd have to be at a severe caloric deficit to lose 6 pounds of fat, so you might gain back a lot of water weight, but you'd probably lose that as rapidly as you did when you first started to diet.
