Toxic Alcohol Ingestions: Clinical Features, Diagnosis, And Management

Abstract Alcohol-related intoxications, including methanol, ethylene glycol, diethylene glycol, and propylene glycol, and alcoholic ketoacidosis can present with a high anion gap metabolic acidosis and increased serum osmolal gap, whereas isopropanol intoxication presents with hyperosmolality alone. The effects of these substances, except for isopropanol and possibly alcoholic ketoacidosis, are due to their metabolites, which can cause metabolic acidosis and cellular dysfunction. Accumulation of the alcohols in the blood can cause an increment in the osmolality, and accumulation of their metabolites can cause an increase in the anion gap and a decrease in serum bicarbonate concentration. The presence of both laboratory abnormalities concurrently is an important diagnostic clue, although either can be absent, depending on the time after exposure when blood is sampled. In addition to metabolic acidosis, acute renal failure and neurologic disease can occur in some of the intoxications. Dialysis to remove the unmetabolized alcohol and possibly the organic acid anion can be helpful in treatment of several of the alcohol-related intoxications.

    (edit: it's worth pointing out that "Ketosis " on it's own is not a bad thing, but Diabetic ketoacidosis is. I assume this is the point of the question)
    Diabetic Ketoacidosis comes from High (hyper) Blood Sugar not Low (Hypo). They could happen together, if you had high blood sugar for too long, the Ketoacidosis happened then you over treated the high and it went low. In this case you'd have 2 separate problems. Hypoglaycemia and Ketoacidosis. Low blood sugar will make you pass out and go into a coma eventually. Ketoacidosis is very painful and horrible to be part of. But I wouldn't say they increase each others danger very much.

    I'm not a doctor, but from what I know of diabetic conditions, both of these can be dangerous, and especially if they occur together (especially since ketosis would probably indicate serious hypoglycemia).

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

The Syndrome Of Alcoholic Ketoacidosis

To further elucidate the clinical spectrum of alcoholic ketoacidosis (AKA). A case series of 74 patients with AKA defined as a wide anion gap metabolic acidosis unexplained by any other disorder or toxin, including any patient with a history of chronic alcohol abuse. The setting was the Medical Emergency Department at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, a university-affiliated inner-city hospital. AKA is a common disorder in the emergency department, more common than previously thought. The acid-base abnormalities are more diverse than just a wide-gap metabolic acidosis and often include a concomitant metabolic alkalosis, hyperchloremic acidosis, or respiratory alkalosis. Lactic acidosis is also common. Semiquantitative serum acetoacetate levels were positive in 96% of patients. Elevated blood alcohol levels were present in two thirds of patients in whom alcohol levels were determined, and levels consistent with intoxication were seen in 40% of these patients. Electrolyte disorders including hyponatremia, hypokalemia, hypophosphatemia, hyperglycemia, hypocalcemia, and hypomagnesemia were common on presentation. The most common symptoms were nausea, vomiting, and abdominal Continue reading >>

    Something I am having a hard time understand, drinking whole milk is not good? But we are to eat as much cheese as possible? Can someone help me understand? I also cant seem to get an answer on sugars. Are we also avoiding food with a certain sugar content (already assuming it has little to no carbs)?
    That being said, what about artificial sweeteners? Can I drink diet soda? I am a bit of a soda addict, but if I can drink diet soda I wont mind.

  2. Ampix0

    gars are carbs but all carbs are not sugar. Sugar content while optimally as low as possibly, is already pretty low anyway as long as the amount of carbs are low. Out of the 3 types of carbs (sugars, starch and fiber), the most preferred would be fiber. Most diet sodas and artificial sweeteners should be fine, you could also try to move in
    This subreddit is incredibly helpful. Thank you so much.

  3. Targash

    Cheese still has a small amount of carbs. However most of the lactose, the sugar in milk, is lost in the cheese maki process. You also aren't really eating anything "as much as possible" you still have to be reasonable.
    Avoid added sugars. Most vegetables have naturally occurring sugars which are fine. Again within reason. Leafy greens are great, carrots not so much. Based on carb count.
    Diet soda is fine for most people.

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Ketoacidosis is a metabolic state associated with high concentrations of ketone bodies, formed by the breakdown of fatty acids and the deamination of amino acids. The two common ketones produced in humans are acetoacetic acid and ß-hydroxybutyrate. Ketoacidosis is a pathological metabolic state marked by extreme and uncontrolled ketosis. In ketoacidosis, the body fails to adequately regulate ketone production causing such a severe accumulation of keto acids that the pH of the blood is substantially decreased. In extreme cases ketoacidosis can be fatal. Ketoacidosis is most common in untreated type 1 diabetes mellitus, when the liver breaks down fat and proteins in response to a perceived need for respiratory substrate. Prolonged alcoholism may lead to alcoholic ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis can be smelled on a person's breath. This is due to acetone, a direct by-product of the sp

Alcoholic Ketoacidosis: How Does It Happen?

Alcoholic Ketoacidosis can be acquired through alcohol use and starvation. It is characterized by an excess acid in the bloodstream, which often leads symptoms like vomiting and abdominal pain. If you ingest something that is metabolized or turned into acid, this will lead to ketoacidosis. Abdominal pain, fatigue, vomiting, and dehydration are the common symptoms of alcoholic ketoacidosis. Binge alcohol drinking often leads to repetitive vomiting, often causing a person to lose appetite. The stored normal sugars or glucose in the liver may decrease if vomiting and starvation go on for days. Low stored normal sugars accompanied by starvation will lead to low blood glucose levels and soon a decrease in insulin secretion. The cells will have a hard time getting energy from the glucose that is in the blood. Due to insufficient energy, the cells will switch to a backup mechanism to obtain energy; hence, create ketones. With the production of ketones that provide energy to the cells, it can make the blood too acidic (ketoacidosis). Ketoacidosis may also co-occur with diabetes except that in alcoholic ketoacidosis, the blood glucose levels are low. Glucose (sugar) and insulin are needed b Continue reading >>

    Per week weightloss that is.

    I've done this a few times while trying to lose weight... and am doing it now. I would say the first week you lose a lot. (5-7 pounds or so) After the first week I found it reduces to more like 3-4 pounds. I think it also depends on your weight. If you have extra weight, it'll come off easier than someone trying to get those last few pounds off. Good luck!

    That's good to know, thanks.
    I am also doing a lower calorie ketogenic diet as well. I'm hoping I can lose a pound a day like the hcg diet. But I will see.
