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

    Background: I am 49 years old, menopausal and have been doing keto (117F/70P/25C) since August 2013, except for a two-week diet break at Christmas. From the end of February to August, I had lost about 45 pounds doing low cal/low fat (100-150 carbs). From August until now, I have lost 24 pounds. My BMR is 1436 and TDEE is 1728. I am sedentary for the most part and have my MFP calories set at 1400. On Fridays, we go out to dinner and I log anywhere from 1700-2500 calories/30-50 carbs for the day. I am not by any stretch of the imagination starving or malnourished. My diary is open.
    Issue: For the past 4-6 months, I have been experiencing hair loss, cold hands and feet, being really cold all over (except when I'm sweating from the hot flashes) and under my eyes are a little sunken in (where dark circles would be if I had them -- but I don't). I have been researching these symptoms online and have found blogs and articles about upping carbs to balance hormones and increase metabolism, along with a lot of general keto-bashing. I have not yet, however, found any keto-friendly information on the topic.
    I understand that things change as we age -- and I am at that age -- but I'm wondering if my symptoms may be keto-related - I hope not, though. At my last doctor's appointment a few months ago, all my blood work came back good (in fact, better than good -- I was taken off my blood pressure and cholesterol medication). I am taking nightly a multivitamin, potassium, magnesium, Estraven (for the hot flashes/night sweats) and now biotin (for the hair loss). Any thoughts or suggestions from those who have experienced similar symptoms would be most appreciated.

    I am 31, have been on keto since July 2013, and I've noticed that I seem to have more hair coming out in the shower and when I brush it. Not enough to concern me because I have a lot of hair, but I noticed it happening. Otherwise, I feel fine, so maybe it's a random side effect of the diet that some people get. I also get cold hands and feet and am generally chilly, but I've always been that way so it doesn't seem any different to me. I actually take biotin, too, because I found out (before keto) that it helps keep my finger nails healthier. It will be interesting to see if anyone else has similar symptoms.

Effects Of Fasting Ketosis | Allaboutfasting

Understanding ketosis and muscle loss during fasting. The process of ketosis is one of the physiological effects of fasting in which the brain (and some other bodily processes) uses ketones produced from fatty tissues as a fuel instead of the usual glucose. This is called "muscle sparing". When glucose isn't readily available via the diet (in the form of carbohydrates) and the glycogen stores in the liver become depleted, the body could break down muscle to get it. But ketosis is an adaptation that will spare muscle during times of shortage by instead breaking down fat stores and manufacturing ketones for brain fuel. It is said this state is attained at approximately 48 hours of a water fast for women and closer to 72 hours for men. The effects of fasting ketosis became a more popular and controversial subject about 10 years ago due to low-carb, high-protein dieters relying on it long-term to "burn the fat". Recent iterations of these "ketogenic diets" are fine-tuning fat to protein to carb ratios. Where ketosis was once considered a "crisis response" of the body and fine only for short durations, there are some diet doctors who now contend ketones are an acceptable alternative fu Continue reading >>

    It varies for everyone. For me personally...it took 4 days to register anything and almost 2 weeks to get purple...I have never seen the darkest purple shade. Some people will tell you not to use the sticks, but I like them. My doctor told me to use them 3 times a day for a week to see when my body is the highest. Again...everyone is different. I am highest in the morning, but I hear some people are highest at night.

    Your body has to burn off all the stored sugar before it goes into ketosis. The shade on the stick should read ' moderate. ' Any higher means you aren't drinking enough water to flush out excess ketones. Too many ketones in your body is unhealthy. So don't think you have to be in the darkest purple range to be eating properly. Also the best time to test is first thing in the morning. Only diabetics need check more than once a day. On atkins we don't even need to use keto sticks. If you follow the rules you will be in ketosis.

Fasting Induces Ketoacidosis And Hypothermia In Pdhk2/pdhk4-double-knockout Mice

Go to: Introduction The PDH complex (pyruvate dehydrogenase complex) plays a pivotal role in controlling the concentrations of glucose in the fed and fasted state [1]. In the well-fed state, the PDH complex is highly active, promoting glucose oxidation by generating acetyl-CoA, which can be oxidized by the citric acid cycle or used for fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis. In the fasted state, the PDH complex is inactivated by phosphorylation by PDHKs (pyruvate dehydrogenase kinases) to conserve three carbon compounds for the production of glucose [2]. The four PDHK isoenzymes responsible for phosphorylating the PDH complex are expressed in a tissue-specific manner [3–5]. Among the four, PDHK2 and PDHK4 are most abundantly expressed in the heart [5–7], skeletal muscle [5,8–10] and liver [5,11–14] of fasted mice. Of these two, PDHK2 is of interest because of its greater sensitivity to activation by acetyl-CoA and NADH and inhibition by pyruvate [15]. However, PDHK4 has received greater attention because its expression is increased in many tissues by fasting and diabetes [12] and transcription of its gene is regulated by insulin, glucocorticoids, thyroid hormone and fatty aci Continue reading >>

    Hello everyone!
    Okay.. so this is probably a really stupid question... but what is the main difference between ketosis and starvation?
    Am I right in thinking that ketosis happens when you have an abundance of fat to burn (like me) and starvation is when the person doesn't have anything to burn left...
    Basically.. I want to be in ketosis and I've bought some sticks to test me later this week... but I don't want to 'starve'.... this is probably a really stupid question but I know lots of you are experts so please advise!
    Thank you! xxx

    Ketosis is the state your body goes into when your diet is low on carbs or has zero carbs. When the body is without any form of carbohydrate the liver produces ketones which is a form of carbohydrate. The liver converts fats and proteins into ketones, therefore going after the fat stores of the body for energy. That's why people in the state of ketosis lose so much fat so quickly.
    There are other advantages of being in the state of ketosis. You can eat lots of food and still lose weight - as long as you don't eat any carbohydrates. Only eat protein, vegetables (except potatoes and grains), nuts, seeds, natural oils such as olive and coconut.
    I eat 6 times a day, about 5 ounces of protein at every meal and a heaping plateful of vegetables with olive oil, raw walnuts etc. I'm about 10% body fat right now with lots of muscle.
    Starvation is when your body does not get food at regular intervals throughout the day and therefore conserves energy by storing whatever calories it gets as fat and uses its protein stores for energy instead - your muscle. So in starvation mode you will eventually burn fat if you are calorie deficient, but you will also lose muscle - which slows your metabolism down.
    Starvation is not a sustainable lifestyle but ketosis is. It's great to use the starvation method to get the weight off in a hurry, but as soon as you start eating again the weight is put on quickly.
    With Ketosis you can eat lots of food and stay lean, fit and full of energy. You just need to learn how to do it right

    Thank you SO much for going into detail - that is all really helpful information.
    Can I just ask one last question... what is the maximum amount of carbs you can consume to stay in ketosis?
    The web gives lots of different opinions and I've heard that 20g is roughly the right amount?
    Would you agree?
    Thank you again! : )
