Many Children In Dka Experience Acute Kidney Injury

A study finds more than half of children with Type 1 exhibit the symptoms. Kidney disease is often viewed as a potential long-term complication for Type 1 diabetes. A new study suggests, however, that even a single bout of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) may injure the kidneys of children. sponsor For the study, researchers with the University of British Columbia and British Columbia Children’s Hospital reviewed the medical records of 165 children with Type 1 diabetes who had been hospitalized for DKA. Out of this group, 106 children were found to also have experienced acute kidney injury, with two children needing dialysis to treat the condition, according to findings published in JAMA Pediatrics. Acute kidney injury was diagnosed using a blood test to measure the buildup of creatinine, a waste product expelled by the kidneys.

    Ketone Test strips

    Hey all,
    Today I tested my urine for ketones. I have a "trace" of in my body (5 ml/dg). Small=15 , moderate= 40 and large= 80-160.
    I have only being doing keto diet for a week so im not sure what results im supposed to see yet. Does anyone know which amount above would technically put me in ketosis? Also, if my carb re-feed days are sundays, should I be testing my urine on a certain day, or how often should I be testing it?

    trace means you're in ketosis which is where you wanna be. The deeper purple you go, the more water you should be drinking from what i recall. It usually takes me 24 hours after my carb-ups to begin ketosis again. Good luck!

    See I was curious about this.. I have been under 15g's of carbs per day (usually under 10 even) and I'm at the faintest of traces.. but I drink almost 4 liters of water a day during the week (weekends I slack on the water as I'm not at work.. and out and about doing things)..
    Hmm.
