Watch: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivQE7...) How to Identify Renal Failure Renal failure, also known as kidney failure, is a condition that can take two different forms: acute, when it presents itself very suddenly, and chronic, when it develops slowly over at least three months. Acute kidney failure has the potential to lead to chronic renal failure. During both types of renal failure your kidneys arent able to perform the necessary functions your body needs to stay healthy. Despite this similarity between types, the causes, symptoms, and treatments for the two kinds of renal failure vary significantly. Learning about the symptoms and causes of this disease and being able to differentiate between the two forms can be beneficial if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with renal failure.

Acute Renal Failure In Patients With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus.

Acute renal failure in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Acute renal failure (ARF) is a serious condition which still carries a mortality of around 50%. People with diabetes may be at increased risk of developing ARF, either as a complication of diabetic ketoacidosis or hyperosmolar coma, increased incidence of cardiovascular disease, or due to increased susceptibility of the kidney to adverse effects in the presence of underlying diabetic renal disease. During the period 1956-1992, 1,661 cases of ARF have been treated at Leeds General Infirmary. Of these, we have identified 26 patients also having type 1 diabetes. ARF due to diabetic ketoacidosis is surprisingly uncommon (14 cases out of 23 patients whose notes were reviewed). All cases of ARF complicating ketoacidosis in the last decade have been associated with particularly severe illness requiring intensive care unit support, rather than otherwise 'uncomplicated' ketoacidosis. We discuss the conditions that may result in ARF in patients with diabetes and the particular difficulties that may be encountered in management.

    Originally Answered: What's "white privilege"? Recently I've been seeing a spark about how white privilege affects so many people and how racism isn't applicable to whites. Why is this?

    White privilege is the ability to go through life without having to worry about your racial identity affecting your path in the world. You don't have to worry about how your actions are going to influence the way everybody else thinks about your community.
    White privilege is the advantage of not being structurally disadvantaged.
    As a white person, you probably wouldn't know anything about what its like to be harrassed and discriminated on the basis of your race, just as men tend not to know anything about what its like to be harrassed for being a woman.
    Are Emily and Greg More Employable than Lakisha and Jamal? A Field Experiment on Labor Market Discrimination
    White privilege is being more employable solely on the virtue of the "whiteness" of your name.
    On a fun side note, I like to describe White Americans as that- "White-American".
    Think about it. Asians (in the US) are Asian-American, Black folk are Black-American or African-American. Native people are "Native American".
    White Privilege is when you get to move into a country, and then the indigenous people have to add a prefix when identifying themselves, because you are now the default setting.
    White privilege is the privilege of being the default setting.
    EDIT: I was asked to point out that I was writing with a very US-centric perspective. This is true! Perhaps you may also be interested to know that I've never actually been to the US- I'm a Singaporean, a Tamil born and raised in a Chinese-majority country. Over here, you could say that Chinese people experience "Chinese privilege"- government policies include the "Speak Mandarin Campaign", and now we have our train stations announced in English and Mandarin, and sometimes when you're looking for a job or a place to rent, you'll see "Chinese Only"- it used to be explicit, but now it's a little more subtle. I'm not really complaining- being a minority anywhere can't be easy, and I'm sure it's easier in Singapore than in most other places.
    ALSO, despite this, there is White Privilege in Singapore! Despite White people being the minority over here, there are still what some people describe as "colonial hangups", or "Pinkerton's Syndrome", where all else held constant, a white person is typically perceived to have more social value than others- you get better service in stores, you are generally pandered to and treated with more respect. I have a theory that it's partially to do with the fact that lots of White folk tend to be more outgoing and personable, but it's way more complex than it seems. In advertising, for instance, a white doctor or a professional in a suit just "seems more authoritative" than a non-White.
    Sorry I’m being so negative. I’m a bummer, I don’t know I shouldn’t be I’m a very lucky guy. I got a lot going from me. I’m a healthy, I’m relatively young. I’m white; which thank God for that sh** boy. That is a huge leg up, are you kidding me? I love being white I really do. Seriously, if you’re not white you’re missing out because this sh** is thoroughly good.
    Let me be clear by the way, I’m not saying that white people are better. I’m saying that being white is clearly better, who could even argue? If it was an option I would re-up ever year. Oh yeah I’ll take white again absolutely, I’ve been enjoying that, I’ll stick with white thank you.
    Here’s how great it is to be white, I could get in a time machine and go to any time and it would be f***** awesome when I get there. That is exclusively a white privilege. Black people can’t f*** with time machines. A black guy in a time machine is like hey anything before 1980 no thank you, I don’t want to go. But I can go to any time. The year 2, I don’t even know what was happening then but I know when I get there, welcome we have a table right here for you sir. ... thank you, it’s lovely here in the year 2.
    I can go to any time in the past, I don’t want to go to the future and find out what happens to white people because we’re going to pay hard for this sh**, you gotta know that ... we’re not just gonna fall from number 1 to 2. They’re going to hold us down and f*** us in the ass forever and we totally deserve it but for now wheeeee. If you’re white and you don’t admit that it’s great, you’re an asshole. It is great and I’m a man. How many advantages can one person have? I’m a white man, you can’t even hurt my feelings. What can you really call a white man that really digs deep? Hey cracker ... oh ruined my day. Boy shouldn’t have called me a cracker, bringing me back to owning land and people what a drag. - Louis CK
    EDIT: Recently, a 14 year old girl tweeted a fake bomb/hijack threat to American Airlines. When they told her that they take such threats seriously and were sending her details to the FBI, she freaked out and started apologizing profusely. One of the things she said? "Plus I'm a white girl."
    Can you imagine anybody else saying that? "Don't arrest me, I'm an Asian/Hispanic/Black/Indian girl?"
    That's white privilege.

    When I was in college, I worked for 3 years as a resident assistant.
    One of my former residents is black.
    He graduated 9 or 10 years ago, and has done pretty well for himself. He has a great job, drives an Audi, and lives in a high rent district of one of the larger US cities. It's one of the more expensive areas in the US.
    He's done much better than I have by any economic measure.
    Last summer he got pulled over 8 times in 6 weeks driving in his area of town. 8 times he was pulled over and I think he got one ticket and one warning. In six weeks he got pulled over more times than I’ve been pulled over in my entire life, and I've gotten a ticket every time but once, because I get pulled over for moving violations. (5/6 I think.)
    He was getting pulled over because a black man driving a nice car in an expensive part of town leads police to suspect theft.
    He was posting on Facebook every time he got pulled over so people would know what had happened in case he got shot.
    This is not something I've ever had to deal with.
    When people talk about white privilege, they are talking about my resident. After doing everything he’s supposed to do to be “acceptable to society,” after getting an education, beating the employment odds, after doing really well for himself, he still has to worry about getting pulled over and shot… simply because he’s not white.
    I don't have to worry about that.

    That's white privilege.

    "White privilege" is just a shorthand way to say you have an easier time of it in the US if you are white than if you are black. And yes, that is absolutely true.
    It does not mean that white people have everything handed to them. It does not mean that white people don't have to work for what they have. It does not mean every single white person is better off than every single black person. It simply means that, all other things being equal, you will have an easier time of it if you're white than if you're in the same exact circumstance and you're black.
    This plays out in a thousand ways. Legally, if you're white and you're spotted committing a minor crime, you're less likely to be arrested than if you're black. If you're convicted, you're more likely to be given probation and avoid a prison term than if you're black.
    Financially, you'll find it easier to get a job if you're white. (A fascinating recent study[1] involved taking a bunch of word for word identical resumes and sending them to a large number of companies. They were all the same except that some had a "white sounding" name on top and some had a "black sounding" name. The ones with white-sounding names got more callbacks--by a large margin.)
    If you're white, you will probably get a lower interest rate in your mortgage than if you're black but have the exact same finances. Again, studies involving identical mortgage applications, some with white-sounding names and some with black-sounding names, bear this out.
    In a group of identically-dressed people of different races on a job site or in an office, people will tend to unconsciously assume that the white person is the one in charge.
    The list goes on. The experience of being white is quantifiably and persistently different than the experience of being black.

Acute kidney injury (also called acute renal failure) nursing NCLEX review lecture on the nursing management, stages, pathophysiology, and causes (prerenal, intrarenal, postrenal). What is Acute Kidney Injury? It is the SUDDEN decrease in renal function that leads to the build up of waste in the blood, fluid overload, and electrolyte imbalances. What are the causes of Acute Kidney Injury? There are three causes, which are based on location. The first is known as prerenal injury and this is an issue with the perfusion to the kidneys that leads to decreased renal function. A second cause is known as intrarenal injury, and this is due to damage to the nephrons of the kidney. Lastly, postrenal injury is due to a blockage located in the urinary tract after the kidney that can extend to the urethra. This is causing the back flow of urine, which increases the pressure and waste in the kidneys. Stages of Acute Kidney Injury: There are four stage of acute kidney injury, which include initiation, oliguric, diuresis, and recovery stage. The initiation stage starts when a cause creates an injury to the kidney and then signs and symptoms start to appear. This leads to the oliguric stages. The p

Acute Kidney Injury Frequent In Kids With Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Acute Kidney Injury Frequent in Kids With Diabetic Ketoacidosis Of children with type 1 diabetes who were hospitalized for diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), 64% developed acute kidney injury (AKI), according to a new study published online March 13 2017 in JAMA Pediatrics. The work is the first to show that acute kidney injury is a frequent complication of pediatric DKA. The latter can be life-threatening and represents the leading cause of hospitalization in youth with type 1 diabetes. This high percentage is concerning because acute kidney injury is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Studies have also suggested that it may increase the risk of later chronic kidney disease, a condition for which youngsters with type 1 diabetes are already at increased risk. Results also showed that patients with severe acidosis and profound volume depletion were at increased risk of severe acute kidney injury. In DKA, high blood glucose levels can lead to increased urination and volume depletion. Patients also have acidosis and increased production of ketoacids. "On presentation to the hospital, many children with DKA present quite volume depleted, but fluid management" must by necessi Continue reading >>

    I started the Atkins diet at the beginning of the year and I am making slow progress. During the induction phase I lost 6 lb in this first week and then nothing after that. The second week I stayed the same weight and at time appeared to gain a pound or two and lose a pound or two! The whole time this was happening I was using the urine analysis strips ( and still am) and it was showing during the whole time I was producing a moderate to large amount of ketones! It has been a month now and I feel like I should be making more headway in this. Over the past month I have lost an additional four pounds (but I don't really count it because I have been known to put it on again some time in the week and then just stay at that weight). I have not increased my carbs from the inital amount suggested in the induction phase. I am concerned that I am not able to lose. I work out everyday (either yoga or step) for about 40 minutes, although I do have a desk job. Has this happened to anyone else? If so, what can I do?

  2. AngelaR

    It's normal to slow down after the induction period is over. Your body is thinking baout what is going on and trying to adjust. You are also exercising whish is replacing fat with lean muscle, and muscle weighs more than fat.
    Have you taken measurements? Sometimes you don't lose pounds, but you lose inches.
    The big question is, How much water are you drinking?
    Also, what are you eating? Are you eating any of the things that would slow you down? Are you eating foods that have hidden carbs? If you start a journal in the Bootcamp/Journals section, and post this kind of info regularly, then it will be easier for people to take a look at your patterns and give you some guidance.

  3. Natrushka

    Scouce, welcome to the forum.
    The first thing that comes to mind is are you drinking enough water and are you eating enough food. You should be drinking at the very minimum 64 oz of water a day (water, water and more water - anything else you drink should be above and beyond this). Guidlines for calories are 10 - 12 times your body weight a day - eating too little will stress your body and force it to hold onto fat and water. Put the two together and slow or nonexistant fat loss is not surprizing.
    Starting up a Journal in the Bootcamp section might be a good idea - just to give us some idea of what you've been eating and drinking. Remember to include quality and quantity! You might also be interested in checking out www.fitday.com It's a free online site that lets you keep track of fat/protein/carbs etc. It is usually a very eye opening experience.

Acute Kidney Injury As A Severe Complication Of Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Background: Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) in children and young adults carries significant morbidity and mortality relating to complications such as cerebral oedema. Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a rare but potentially fatal complication of DKA. We present three cases of DKA complicated by AKI. Case 1: A 9-year-old girl presented with severe DKA at diagnosis. She was treated with intravenous fluids and insulin as per protocol. She had oliguria and haematuria 36 h after admission. She was hypertensive with evidence of enlarged kidneys on ultrasound (USS). She was transferred to the renal unit where she needed two cycles of hemodialysis before making full recovery. Case 2: A 14-year-old girl presented with severe DKA and altered consciousness at diagnosis. She developed oliguria 24 h after starting treatment for DKA. USS of abdomen showed enlarged kidneys. Her renal function improved with haemofiltration and recovered fully by 1 week. Case 3: 17-year-old girl with poorly controlled type 1 diabetes presented with severe DKA. She showed evidence of AKI with very high plasma creatinine, oliguria and low plasma phosphate. She was managed conservatively with individualised fluid plan and pho Continue reading >>

    I've tried keto three times now. The first time, I did things right and lost weight. I stopped over the holidays so I could eat delicious cakes and started up again in the new year.
    Second time, I thought I knew what I was doing and tried to cut corners. Big mistake. I was still always hungry, craving carbs, and lost no weight. Disheartening scale results for two straight months.
    Third time started last week, and I'm already feeling better. Why?
    Calories Still Matter. If you eat 3,000-4,000 calories a day, you won't lose weight, even if the foods are keto-friendly. Plug your favorite meals into MFP and adjust for your daily snacks. Know how much food you are putting into your body each day within 100-200 calories.
    Reduce Variables Lots of things can keep you out of ketosis, throw you out of ketosis, or otherwise raise your blood sugar or stop weight loss. I've ditched my Qwest bars, Coke Zeros, and Atkins deserts - artificial sweeteners can be a problem. No more ketchup, not even a little - it's a secret source of corn syrup. I'm only drinking coffee once or twice a week, because caffeine can affect weight loss. (This probably isn't necessary, but I feel much better having done it.)
    Mind your State of Mind The mental game is just as important as the physical one. Keep trying to think of food as a resource instead of a reward. Lying in bed at the end of the day and thinking about regrets? Remind yourself that you chose to be healthy today and stuck to it. This goes double on weekends/social situations, when keto is the hardest. Try not to worry about carbs in your future - if this is a lifestyle change for you, great. If you lose a bunch of weight and can do a standard diet again, great. It doesn't matter right now. That decision is months away, and you will be a different, healthier person then. Just think about today.
    Too many people think that keto is magic - you'll eat a pile of bacon and the pounds will magically slip away. It doesn't work like that. The thing that keto does that NO other diet will do is allow you to go through life eating a reduced number of calories WITHOUT being hungry all the time. This means that with a little self-discipline, weight loss is possible without feeling miserable. That's great, but it still means that you have to consciously choose reduce the amount of food that you eat. Too many people forget that step. Others never get there, because they eat too much fake sugar or 'cheat' and never even enter ketosis where their appetite shrinks. And then they give up.
    So if you're going to do this, do it right. 'cheaty keto' doesn't work.
    EDIT: A lot of people who have had success doing keto while drinking diet sodas, eating lots of Quest bars, etc. seem to think that I want them to change their habits. That is clearly not the intention of this post. If it's working for you, great, keep going and don't worry. This post is for people who decide "I want to do keto!" without realizing that other things might affect their ability to lose weight on the diet, which might cause them to give up in frustration. I'm just trying to help new folks avoid mistakes. If you're a veteran, feel free to ignore.
