Facts About The Vegetative And Minimally Conscious States After Severe Brain Injury

Mark Sherer, Ph.D., Monica Vaccaro, M.S., John Whyte, MD, Ph.D., Joseph T. Giacino, Ph.D., and the Consciousness Consortium, Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center Severe brain injury causes a change in consciousness. Consciousness refers to awareness of the self and the environment. Brain injury can cause a wide range of disturbances of consciousness. Some injuries are mild and may cause relatively minor changes in consciousness such as brief confusion or disorientation. The most severe injuries cause profound disturbance of consciousness. Twenty to 40% of persons with injuries this severe do not survive. Some persons who survive have a period of time of complete unconsciousness with no awareness of themselves or the world around them. The diagnosis given these people depends on whether their eyes are always closed or whether they have periods when their eyes are open. The state of complete unconsciousness with no eye opening is called coma. The state of complete unconsciousness with some eye opening and periods of wakefulness and sleep is called the vegetative state. As people recover from severe brain injury, they usually pass through various phases of recovery. Recovery can Continue reading >>

    OK.... I'm a keto newbie, on Day 9 of the 12 day start up. As and aside, I feel great and am loving the food choices.
    ANYWAY... I have a girl friend who is an RN (and a very good one), who has cautioned me that ketones are 'hard on the kidneys'.
    Now, I love my GF to death, and I know that she means only the best, but I have very little confidence in the conventional medical community. After all, this is an industry that makes it's money from people being sick...
    My research has turned up that ketones are NOT damaging to the kidneys. On the contrary, the kidney uses ketones as a preferred fuel source when they can get them. The heart and brain as well as other major organs prefer them too...
    Seems as though the confusion is with the fact that a lot of medical professionals consider the excessive protein while on a keto diet damaging to the kidneys. I have also found research that dispels this... showing that only individuals who already have compromised kidney functions MIGHT have a problem with excess protein in the diet.
    I'm looking for comments from those who are experienced with the keto lifestyle. What do you know??

    excessive dietary protein causes your kidneys to work harder to remove excess nitrogen. however, the keto is a high fat diet, not a high protein diet so i wouldnt be worried about it unless your macros are out of wack. some people have trouble with foamy urine on the diet, but most people dont experience kidney trouble on keto.

    I'm new to this too.
    I think what they teach the doctors/nurses is whats best for the general public. (people that don't work out, and don't necessarily get enough water ect..) So they may not always have the best answers for people like us.
    I would say to just drink plenty of water, and you will be fine.
    Just my opinion here, but like you say there is plenty of people who have done this diet with no bad side effects, and there is plenty of research supporting this to be a healthy diet as well.

Check out the rest of the Drunk Series on our channel! Written drunk. Acted drunk. Star Drunk is the sequel to the viral short film 'Cleverbot: Do You Love Me.' Star Drunk is an experiment in writing a short film while drunk; several writers from Portland got together one night to write the script. We promised each other that whatever we wrote that night, we'd produce as a short film. We ended up creating a Star Trek-Star Wars-Battlestar Galactica'esque parody with laser gun fights and space battles. Taking the concept a step further (and stranger), we asked our cast to be drunk on the night of filming. For those saying that we faked all of this, here's some proof that everyone was drunk.

Drunk Versus Diabetes: How Can You Tell?

Dispatch calls your EMS unit to the side of a roadway, where police officers have detained a driver on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol intoxication. You find the female driver handcuffed in the back seat of a police cruiser. She is screaming profanities and hitting her head against the side window. An officer tells you that she was weaving in and out of traffic at highway speed, and it took several minutes to pull her over. She was noncooperative and it took several officers to subdue her. She sustained a laceration to her head, which the officers want you to evaluate. The woman continues to swear at you as you open the car door. You note that she is diaphoretic and breathing heavily. You can smell what appears to be the sour, boozy smell of alcohol, even though you are not close to her. You can see that the small laceration near the hairline on her right forehead has already stopped bleeding. Her speech is slurred and she appears to be in no mood to be evaluated. The police officers are ready to take her down to the station to be processed for driving under the influence. Sound familiar? It should — this is a scene that is played out often in EMS systems.

    Hi All,
    I thought I'd break the trend of mono diets in this sub-forum and post my weight loss results from my ketogenic diet. For those who don't know, a keto diet is high in fat, moderate in protein and very low in carbohydrates. I have been experimenting and getting to grips with keto dieting for a couple of months, trying to figure out what works for me and what doesn't. Now that the holidays are out of the way I have gotten into the groove of things and am having a steady weight loss. Officially started doing keto properly after new year, when I weighed in at 186.6lbs. In the first week I lost 8 lbs.
    This thread is for everyone who is interested in keto dieting and wants to see how well it works in someone else. I could not find a thread like this in this sub-forum so decided to embark on my own n=1 experiment. I invite you to comment, ask questions and engage! This is as much your thread as it is mine.
    The STATS:
    21 years old, female
    Height: 6ft 1" (yes, really!)
    HW: 186.6 lbs (as of 28/12/13)
    CW: 179.8 lbs (as of 21/01/14)
    UWG: 138 lbs
    The DIET:
    LCHF with intermittent fasting. <1000 cals/day. Due to fainting at work all the time I now split my one meal a day into two, with one in the morning and another in the evening. There is no exercise involved. I take Irwin's natural carb blockers for social events and dinner parties aka emergencies. I also take a multivitamin with iron and a cod liver oil supplement every morning.
    I don't intend to post my food diary here. Just my weight, thoughts, how I'm feeling re energy levels etc, and musings of day to day cray cray. But if you are interested to see what I eat, add me on MFP. Username: LakeyLiu
    The GOAL:
    1. To reach my UGW by 25 July 2014 (when my summer starts). That's about 40lbs in 7 months. Roughly 6 pounds a month - sounds doable!
    2. To get my BMI out of the 20s by may 29 (birthday). That's 149 lbs.
    Target weights by end of...
    Feb = 169 lbs - achieved 28.2.14
    Mar = 162 lbs
    Apr = 155 lbs
    May = 148 lbs
    Jun = 141 lbs
    Jul = 138 lb
    The MONTHLY PROGRESS 2014:
    Jan: -12.2 lbs (174.4 lbs)
    Feb: -5.4 lbs (total loss 17.6 lbs)
    Mar: -3.4lbs (total loss 21 lbs)

    Common questions asked:
    What is the keto diet?
    The keto diet advocates a high fat, moderate protein and low carb protein. Carbohydrate stores in the muscles and liver, and easily accessible carbohydrates called "sugars" in the blood, are the first resources used by the body for energy so it may continue to function. When this carbohydrate resource is used up that is when the body looks elsewhere for its fuel - the body fat. By already depriving the body of carbohydrates, the body is forced to tap into its fat fuel and burn it for energy. This is the logic upon which the keto diet works on. There is a wealth of information available on the internet about keto dieting but two websites which I think sum it up nicely are :
    http://www.ruled.me
    http://www.reddit.com/r/keto/wiki/faq
    This is not the same as the Atkins diet.
    Although similar, the Atkins diet suggests you may eat as much as you want without calorie counting and still lose weight. It also pushes a lot of processed, manufactured atkins products whereas a keto diet encourages use of more natural ingredients as much as possible, however this is not an absolute rule.
    How much fat/protein/carbs do I need to eat per day?
    On a keto diet your calorie intake, whatever it may be, should consist of 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% fat.
    Do I need to exercise?
    This is your personal choice. However it is not vital in order to lose weight on this diet.
    I feel like crap. Why is that and how do I get over it?
    Keto flu - the induction period of the diet. Your body is getting used to the change of using fat instead of carbohydrates for fuel. Some people may feel more tired, unable to concentrate, achy, irritable etc. This is only a temporary phase and can last anywhere from a few days to 4 weeks depending on how strictly one follows keto and the individual's own body. This stage will pass and many report having more energy than ever and feeling overall great about themselves! So don't give in, perservere.
    Any recipe ideas appropriate to keto?
    I'm experiencing a plateau...help!
    Again, there is a great amount of info on our old friend, Google. My favourite go-to website is http://www.ruled.me. Here they address both recipes and plateau problems among countless over things.
    On an end note.
    The keto diet works. Period. But it requires a LOT of internet research to ensure you are doing it properly and are capable of dealing with any problems along the way. Most of all, the keto diet is fun! I love the fact that I can enjoy fatty foods again and still lose weight. It is a more sociable diet and other people also don't automatically assume I have an eating problem.
    Feel free to post your own experiences of keto dieting here! I'd love to hear from you.

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

Cerebral Proton Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy In Children With Diabetic Ketoacidosis

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Subclinical cerebral edema occurs in many, if not most, children with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and may be an indicator of subtle brain injury. Brain ratios of N-acetylaspartate (NAA) to creatine (Cr), measured by proton MR spectroscopy, decrease with neuronal injury or dysfunction. We hypothesized that brain NAA/Cr ratios may be decreased in children in DKA, indicating subtle neuronal injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-nine children with DKA underwent cerebral proton MR spectroscopy during DKA treatment (2–12 hours after initiating therapy) and after recovery from the episode (72 hours or more after the initiation of therapy). We measured peak heights of NAA, Cr, and choline (Cho) in 3 locations within the brain: the occipital gray matter, the basal ganglia, and periaqueductal gray matter. These regions were identified in previous studies as areas at greater risk for neurologic injury in DKA-related cerebral edema. We calculated the ratios of NAA/Cr and Cho/Cr and compared these ratios during the acute illness and recovery periods. RESULTS: In the basal ganglia, the ratio of NAA/Cr was significantly lower during DKA treatment compared with that after Continue reading >>

    Thanks, that was interesting. I've been on the Atkins Diet while breastfeeding but my son was over two.
    I think personally I'd wait until my baby had started on solid foods and breastfeeding before doing the Atkins Diet. Just to be safe.

    Actually, La Leche League does not recommend any diets that throw your body into ketosis, as there is not enough research on how it will affect your baby. Also keep in mind that weight loss of more than 1-2 lbs. a week is considered unhealthy. As you burn fat, it releases environmental toxins. These toxins are eliminated through the body chiefly through the breastmilk (when lactating).
    If you're going to do low carb and you're breastfeeding, I would not recommend Atkins Induction, but instead start at aroun 40-50 grams of carbs a day.

  3. SnowymtnRN

    That's what's so interesting about this to me. So many people say "i'd recommend not doing induction" etc...or not dieting for that matter, etc...but many people are doing Atkins (some with induction, some not) and they are still getting those products regardless of how its broken down. Its amazing how people just perceive what's safe and what's not. (not any poster here, just a generalization).
    And it IS proven that weight loss is slower, regardless of the low carb route you take and what phase. As for me, i started it when my son was 6 mths old and exclusively bf. I continued til he was almost 10 mths when i found out i was pregnant again and had to stop. now i just follow a general low carb lifestyle (ok usually! :chuckle ). But i believe any diet laden with lean healthy meats, good carb veggies, good fats, low grains, and certain fruits is a great way to go. Can't go wrong there! And my milk was EXTREMELY thick and creamy, very satisfying to my son, and i had a great supply while doing this too. Kinda interesting isn't it? I lost 22-24 pounds (can't remember ) during that 4 mths. So i thought that was pretty good too.
