Medications And Kidney Complications, Symptoms Of Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Your kidneys are two organs located on either side of your backbone just above your waist. They remove waste and excess fluid from the blood, maintain the balance of salt and minerals in the blood, and help regulate blood pressure, among other functions. 1 If damaged, they can cause you to have health issues. Acute Renal Injury A sudden loss of kidney function can be caused by: lack of blood flow to the kidneys, direct damage to the kidneys, or blockage of urine from the kidneys. Common causes of these losses of function may include: traumatic injury, dehydration, severe systemic infection (sepsis), damage from drugs/toxins or pregnancy complications. 2 Chronic Kidney Disease When kidney damage and decreased function lasts longer than three months, it is called chronic kidney disease (CKD). CKD can be dangerous, as you may not have any symptoms until after the kidney damage, which may or may not be able to be repaired, has occurred. High blood pressure and diabetes (types 1 and 2) are the most common causes of CKD. 3 Causes of Chronic Kidney Disease There are also other causes of CKD. These can include: Immune system conditions (e.g., lupus) Long-term viral illnesses (HIV/AIDS, hep Continue reading >>

    I just tried a low-carb (well, essentially NO carb) diet for about a week and had significantly increased frequency during this time (started feeling better when I added carbs back). I didn't put two and two together until yesterday, when I began to research it a bit and came upon this tidbit:
    "When carbs are severely restricted (less than 30-40 grams a day), the body goes into a state of ketosis. Ketosis is when the amount of ketones present in the bloodstream grows due to the body's inability to access carbs for fuel. Excess ketones are released through frequent urination, which can be hard on the kidneys."
    Makes sense. I just wanted to warn others to be cautious when trying a low-carb diet. It really seemed to increase my symptoms.

    YEPPERS!!! Low or no carb diets are not good for you... You should watch that you get GOOD CARBS -- these are the ones that have fiber and protein -- look at the labels --
    "Diabetes in a can" (pop) for instance, has high carbs, but no protein and no fiber -- bad news and it can crash your system... remove it from your diet and that alone can increase your health.
    Vegetables in all color groups are also very important -- the phytochemicals (plant chemicals) in food are all responsible for different parts of the well being of our bodies -- eat from all the food groups and all the food colors -- except white -- remove white breads/pastas, etc...
    Also, same with LOW FAT diets -- it isn't a good idea to remove fat from your diet -- it IS a good idea to remove BAD FATS from your diet. The things that are natural (nuts, salmon, and olive oil type products are the good oils -- they are from the food -- the manufactured fats (chips, margarine, etc..) are the BAD fats and you can generally say that if the food is MAN MADE it isn't going to be good for you -- chose whole foods that are natural -- from the plant, the tree, the ground, etc.. not from a box, a bag, a tub, etc..
    Shop the outside of your grocery store - stay out of the aisles -- that is the best way to get fresh foods... at least the MAJORITY of your diet should come from the outside of the grocery store ---
    Processed = bad news
    Fresh Raw = good news
    The choice is simple -- choose good fresh, raw, unprocessed foods!!!
    To your good health!

  3. ShePurzz

    ooops -- It sounded like I meant NO WHITE stuff -- cauliflower, potatoes, and some other white foods are good for you -- however, stay away from bleached (white) flour, sugar and other such stuff...

What Is Renal Failure: In this video, We will share information about what is renal failure - how to identify renal failure - symptoms of renal failure. Subscribe to our channel for more videos. 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.

Severe Acute Renal Failure In A Patient With Diabetic Ketoacidosis.

Abstract Acute renal failure (ARF) is a rare but potentially fatal complication of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Early recognition and aggressive treatment of ARF during DKA may im-prove the prognosis of these patients. We present a case report of a 12 year old female admitted to the hospital with severe DKA as the 1s t manifestation of her diabetes mellitus. She presented with severe metabolic acidosis, hypophosphatemia, and oliguric ARF. In addition, rhabdomyolysis was noted during the course of DKA which probably contributed to the ARF. Management of DKA and renal replacement therapy resulted in quick recovery of renal function. We suggest that early initiation of renal replacement therapy for patients with DKA developing ARF may improve the potentially poor outcome of patients with ARF associated with DKA.

    my dog of 7 has been unwell and has spent most of the weekend at the vets (£400 )a night stay.(not that i begrudge paying)
    what i am wondering is if any other dog folk have a diabetic dog and what to expect or any advice ,seems he is improving abit (flattened the pup of 1 year after his breckie)
    going to have to give him 2 insulin jabs a day . ?
    is this only available thru the vets ..?
    here he is with his older (bigger brother)

  2. sonic_2k_uk

    He has type 1 diabetes which is insulin dependent. I'm pretty sure its treated the same in dogs as humans, so yes insulin injections will be required.
    Ketoacidosis happens with diabetes when there is not sufficient insulin to reduce the rate at which the liver breaks down fat.
    When the live burns fat it produces ketones. As the liver runs away burning fat without the insulin to control it, the body effectively poisons itself as your blood turns acidic.
    Having had ketoacidosis, i can say its seriously not nice! I'm pretty sure you'd die of dehydration before the ketones killed you though.
    Ketoacidosis is completely treatable is caught in time though, you need to control the level of insulin correctly, reducing the blood sugar level and controlling the liver, replace the lost fluids flushing the ketones out of the blood, basically

    he seems to be drinking and urinating alot , will this be flushing the "ketones" out of his system,

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 patient will void less than 400 mL/day of urine during this stage and will experience increased BUN/creatinine levels, azotemia, hyperkalemia, hypervolemia, increase phosphate and decreased calcium levels along with metabolic acidosis. After this stage the patient can progress to the diuresis stage and this is where the patient will void 3-6 Liters of urine per day due to osmotic diuresis. The patient is at risk for hypokalemia, dehydration, and hypovolemia. The last stage is recovery and the patient's glomerular filtration rate has returned to normal. Therefore, the kidneys are able to maintain normal BUN and creatinine levels, electrolyte, and water levels. Quiz on Acute Kidney Injury: http://www.registerednursern.com/acut...

Diabetic Ketoacidosis Associated With Acute Kidney Injury

A new Journal of American Medical Association article has shown that there is a high rate of occurrence of acute kidney injury (AKI) in children hospitalized with a diagnosis diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Acute kidney injury is one of the most common causes of renal injury that can arise from several aetiologies. Based on predisposing factors, the causes may be categorized into 3 classes: pre-renal, renal or post-renal. In cases of volume depletion, like that which occurs in diabetic ketoacidosis (a complication of diabetes where there is high ketone production), perfusion to kidneys is impaired and that is when the kidneys start to lose their functioning. Since acute kidney injury in children is associated with a poor short term and long term outcome, in a new JAMA article, and for the first time, researchers have evaluated the rate of acute kidney injury (AKI) in pediatric patients who were hospitalized for the diabetic ketoacidosis. This study was conducted at the British Columbia Children’s Hospital from 2008 through 2013. 165 children aged 18 years or younger with type 1 diabetes, DKA and with complete medical records available for data analysis were included. The primary out Continue reading >>

    Trace amount of ketones in urine, constantly!

    So I'm sitting here, typing with one hand while I attempt to feed my son, Dakota with the other lol. At 18 years old, I keep finding myself looking down amazed at what perfection he is that I made! And then feel such an intense fear from the thought of me not living long enough to see him graduate or even see his 10th birthday! :(
    (I'm scared for myself, too…)
    I'm so glad I found a website that looks full of support/people that understand! I'm hoping I can get either an answer to why this is happening, or at least reassurance. :/
    Since I had Dakota (October. 8, 2010) via emergency c-section due to severe preeclampsia, I've had health problems. Unexplained 99% of the time because my blood work comes back "normal". Today, I'm fine. Besides occasional positional vertigo. What worries me though, is the fact that I've been running a trace amount of ketones since I've had Dakota. I'm able to flush them with water, but they come back. I eat enough, my blood sugars are under control, and I'm not sick. I blamed it at first on the c-section (surgery causing trauma to the insides and my body recovering from just having a baby) well it's been two and a half months and I'm STILL running ketones. I know what ketones are. I don't understand why I'm running them though. Why I can't get rid of them. I'm hoping to get an answer. Is this dangerous??? I'm really worried…
    Help please !!!

    The body is constantly producing small amounts of keytones naturally. Keytones are a byproduct of breaking down proteins. Small amounts are not a bad thing. In fact your heart will thank you because your heart prefers keytones over glucose as a fuel source.
    Typically, higher keytones are the result of eating too many proteins, and too few carbohydrates. Don't confuse keytones with ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis is the result of a sedimentary lifestyle, overweight, low insulin levels, and poor diet.

  3. kdroberts

    I have to question some of your info since it appears to be very wrong. Ketones are produced when fatty acids are broken down, as far as I know protein has nothing to do with it. Ketoacidosis has nothing to do with weight, poor diet or lifestyle. Diabetic ketoacidosis is purely from a lack of insulin which is why it's a fairly common problem for type 1's and why many type 1's are diagnosed with ketoacidosis. Dehydration can also cause it because the body starts to panic and starts uncontrollably burning fat for energy.
    Ketosis can happen with a low carb, high fat (like the ketogenic diet which is about 80% fat or to some extent, atkins) diet since the body switches over to ketones as it's primary energy source. If you can control ketosis then it's arguably safe, although that's still hotly contested. If you can't control it then the ketosis will turn to ketoacidosis.
