What is MATERNAL DEATH? What does MATERNAL DEATH mean? MATERNAL DEATH meaning - MATERNAL DEATH definition - MATERNAL DEATH explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Maternal death is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as "the death of a woman while pregnant or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, irrespective of the duration and site of the pregnancy, from any cause related to or aggravated by the pregnancy or its management but not from accidental or incidental causes." The world mortality rate has declined 45% since 1990, but still every day 800 women die from pregnancy or childbirth related causes. According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) this is equivalent to "about one woman every two minutes and for every woman who dies, 20 or 30 encounter complications with serious or long-lasting consequences. Most of these deaths and injuries are entirely preventable." UNFPA estimated that 289,000 women died of pregnancy or childbirth related causes in 2013. These causes range from severe bleeding to obstructed labour, all of which have highly effective interventions. As women have gained ac

    So what happens during cardio when you're in ketosis?




    1 Answer







    One of the best answers to this can be found if you Google Peter Attia's presentations that give an awesome summary on the subject.
    Generally speaking, if you are healthy (not Type 1 diabetic), the energy in your mitochondria is generated from ketone bodies that get converted into Acetyl CoA and enter the Krebs cycle, as opposed to when Acetyl CoA is generated from pyruvate (a byproduct of anaerobic glucose metabolism).
    Ketone bodies are a "cleaner" and a more stable fuel for cardio/endurance exercise (no "bonking" or blood glucose/insuline fluctuations that come from traditional carb-refeeding).

    Ketone bodies typically, then, come as a byproduct of body fat metabolism. Essentially, you just ecome a "fat-burning machine", when you exercise in the state of ketosis.

It is often assumed that herbs and supplements are completely safe. Consumers often do not consider the potential for interactions with their medications. How common are supplement-drug interactions? What kind(s) of impact do they have? This presentation will help answer these and other important questions involving supplement-drug interactions. At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to: Describe the prevalence and impact of supplement-drug interactions. Discuss the types of evidence used to document supplement-drug interactions. Differentiate between pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic interactions. Describe the physiologic function of cytochrome P450 and other metabolic enzymes. Define a system to evaluate the significance of supplement-drug interactions. List examples of significant supplement-drug interactions to avoid. Recognize tools used to identify and prevent supplement-drug interactions.

    Dehydrated, Low Carb Diet

    Has anyone had issues with dehydration? The fewer carbs I eat, the more this has become an issue. My doctor did a skin pinch test and said I was very dehydrated. He even considered using an IV drip while I was in the office. He showed how to do the test on my elbow. See below how I test myself.
    When you're at home and well-hydrated so you have a basis for comparison. When you pinch and gently pull up on the skin, it springs back easily (this changes slowly as you age as skin looses elasticity, but it's all relative). If the skin maintains a little 'tent', and then slowly goes back to normal it's usually a sign of dehydration.

    I was younger when I did the ultimate low carb diet and never had an issue. How much fluid do you take in a day, I drink a lot of fluids so I do not have the issue.

  3. MCS

    So are you drinking fluids. When you first go LC you strip your body of glycogen, glycogen holds a lot of fluid, its got to go some where. When the fluid goes so does a certain amount of sodium and potassium, you may consider increasing your sodium and supplementing with potassium.

Sudden Unexplained Death In Alcohol Misuse (sudam) Patients Have Different Characteristics To Those Who Died From Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (sads)

, Volume 13, Issue3 , pp 278283 | Cite as Sudden unexplained death in alcohol misuse (SUDAM) patients have different characteristics to those who died from sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS) There is growing awareness of sudden unexplained death in alcohol misuse (SUDAM) in which there is no obvious cause of death, no evidence of acute alcohol toxicity or alcoholic ketoacidosis, and the heart is morphologically normal. This study describes the characteristics of a cohort with SUDAM from a tertiary cardiovascular referral center and compares the findings with those of individuals who died from sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS). Cases in this retrospective cross-sectional study were identified from a database of referrals to our center spanning approximately 40 years. Cases with recorded heavy use of alcohol and non-alcohol users were selected, then limited to those with SUDAM or SADS aged 16 to 64 years. 62 cases of SUDAM and 41 cases of SADS were identified. The SUDAM group were older than the SADS group; mean age 35.8 years and 27.7 years respectively (P=0.0002). There was also a higher incidence of significant psychiatric illness in SUDAM (19.7%) than SADS (2.4%) case Continue reading >>

    Ketogenic diets

    After reading about ketogenic diets and many saying how hunger was no longer there after being in ketosis for a while, and not even thinking about food sweets etc, at first i thought doubt it but OK being a food addict myself and obese, but after being in ketosis for about 5-6 weeks where my diet was 5% carbs 10-15 protein and 80-85% fat i finally realized what they said was right, the hunger went away and the thought of food sweets carbs and overeating was not there anymore.
    Another thing i read was complaints of hair loss while in a ketosis, some saying they didn't have hair loss while others saying they did especially thinning of the hair.
    3 months later and 60 lbs weight lose i noticed thinning if the hair and losing hair so i stopped being in ketosis thinking i try just adding some carbs via vegetables.
    So i did and the thinning stopped as did the hair loss 5 month later still adding vegetables and other little carb foods.
    But the diet is much harder to control not being in ketosis the extra carbs keep bringing me back to the old way of binging and always being hungry.
    Now some will say add more fat, i did but i never lost weight eating extra fat and need to count my calories if i don't count them i simply don't lose weight, even after 5-6 months on High fat 10-15 protein i still don't lose weight unless i counted calories.
    So i'm thinking of cutting back the carbs again and being in ketosis but at the same time thinking will it go back to losing hair :-(
    any comments?

  2. foxl

    Yeah if that is what caused my hair loss, I will sacrifice my hair! (I noted it at diagnosis, was not low carb at first, but also starting menopause then). I also have seen people blame hair loss on metformin. Who knows .... ?

  3. smorgan

    Adding some carbs stopped hair loss? It just doesn't sound right. What could be the relationship between glucose and hair? Hair is made of protein, as is the scalp and what connects them. Before resorting to glucose from carbs, I would have tried upping the protein slightly first. In any case, if that protein added was above the actual immediate need for it, it would mostly be turned into glucose, anyway, but in a safer manner than the carbs. I just can't imagine any relationship between hair and glucose.

In 25 cases of sudden and unexpected death of alcoholics we found pathologically increased levels of BHBA of 1260 to 47 200 (median 8000) mol/L. This led us to the diagnosis of an alcoholic ketoacidosis (AKA) as cause of death in these cases. The control group of 69 postmortem cases revealed that BHBA concentrations below 500 can be regarded as no ...
