    A few days ago my husband looked at me and said "Honey I love you, but you have some really skank breath". I have always been on top of my oral hygiene game I was a little concerned. So I sat down and was thinking about all I have changed in the past few weeks that could be giving me "skank breath" as my husband put it.
    So I started doing some research and discovered that diets high in protein can cause bad breath. Then it hit me that I added a protein shake to my diet every morning for breakfast, and I have been over my protein lately. So now I am at a point where I dont know what to do. I need the protein to build lean muscle, to help burn fat. So the question: what do I do about this stinking breath? (literally) I even get this weird dry mouth even though i drink about 2 gallons of water a day!

Cells need glucose (sugar) and insulin to function properly.Glucose comes from the food you eat, and insulin is produced by the pancreas.When you drink alcohol, your pancreas may stop producing insulin for a shorttime. Without insulin, your cells wont be able to use the glucose you consumefor energy. To get the energy you need, your body will start to burn fat. When your body burns fat for energy, byproducts known as ketonebodies are produced. If your body is not producing insulin, ketone bodies willbegin to build up in your bloodstream. This buildup of ketones can produce alife-threatening condition known as ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis, ormetabolic acidosis, occurs when you ingest something that is metabolized orturned into an acid. This condition has a number of causes, including: In addition to general ketoacidosis, there are several specifictypes. These types include: alcoholic ketoacidosis, which is caused by excessive consumptionof alcohol diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), which mostly develops in peoplewith type 1 diabetes starvation ketoacidosis, which occurs most often in women whoare pregnant, in their third trimester, and experiencing excessive vomiting Each of these situatio Continue reading >>

    i think (and others may correct me if i'm wrong) that sugar alcohol is like regular alcohol in that even though it doesn't prevent weight loss, it slows it, because while it is available in your body, your body will burn it for fuel instead of your fat stores. but don't take that as gospel (its not as if i'm Nat or something! *wink*)

What is DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS? What does DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS mean? DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS meaning - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS definition - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a potentially life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus. Signs and symptoms may include vomiting, abdominal pain, deep gasping breathing, increased urination, weakness, confusion, and occasionally loss of consciousness. A person's breath may develop a specific smell. Onset of symptoms is usually rapid. In some cases people may not realize they previously had diabetes. DKA happens most often in those with type 1 diabetes, but can also occur in those with other types of diabetes under certain circumstances. Triggers may include infection, not taking insulin correctly, stroke, and certain medications such as steroids. DKA results from a shortage of insulin; in response the body switches to burning fatty acids which produces acidic ketone bodies. DKA is typically diagnosed when testing finds high b

Alcoholic Ketoacidosis

Author: George Ansstas, MD; Chief Editor: Romesh Khardori, MD, PhD, FACP more... In 1940, Dillon and colleagues first described alcoholic ketoacidosis (AKA) as a distinct syndrome. AKA is characterized by metabolic acidosis with an elevated anion gap, elevated serum ketone levels, and a normal or low glucose concentration. [ 1 , 2 ] Although AKA most commonly occurs in adults with alcoholism, it has been reported in less-experienced drinkers of all ages. Patients typically have a recent history of binge drinking, little or no food intake, and persistent vomiting. [ 3 , 4 , 5 ] A concomitant metabolic alkalosis is common, secondary to vomiting and volume depletion (see Workup). [ 6 ] Treatment of AKA is directed toward reversing the 3 major pathophysiologic causes of the syndrome, which are: An elevated ratio of the reduced form of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) This goal can usually be achieved through the administration of dextrose and saline solutions (see Treatment). The pathogenesis of AKA is complex. [ 7 ] Although the general physiological factors and mechanisms leading to AKA are understood, the precise factors have not Continue reading >>

    Everyone is different. I just worked out I needed fewer than 30g of carbs a day to lose weight and get good BG numbers. I then used a calculator to determine the optimum amount of protein for me, which was around 65g a day. With those two sorted out as actual grams, I just ate good fats to satiety. The final ratio came out at an F:P:C of around 85:10:5, but it varied day by day according to what I felt like eating each day, although for many months I was meticulous about not going over the 30g of carbs. Sometimes that was as low as 13 or 14.
    I no longer weigh and measure my food, but my fasting glucose and HbA1c are still where I like them to be. My HA1c has been pretty well a horizontal line now for over five years. You'll see my current number in my sig line.

    The kidneys and lungs maintain the balance (proper pH level) of chemicals called acids and bases in the body. Acidosis occurs when acid builds up or when bicarbonate (a base) is lost. Acidosis is classified as either respiratory or metabolic acidosis. Respiratory acidosis develops when there is too much carbon dioxide (an acid) in the body. This type of acidosis is usually caused when the body is unable to remove enough carbon dioxide through bre ...
