Correlation Of Levels Of Obstruction In Copd With Lactate And Six-minute Walk Testcorrelao Dos Graus De Obstruo Na Dpoc Com Lactato E Teste De Caminhada De Seis Minutos

Get rights and content Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a leading cause of morbid-mortality world wide, leading not only to pulmonary damage but also to multisystemic impairment, with repercussions on skeletal muscles and the ability to undertake effort, as measured in the six-minute walk test (6-MWT). To correlate the level of obstruction in COPD with lactate concentration and heart rate (HR) at rest, and distance walked. To correlate distance walked with blood gas analysis and correlate desaturation in 6-MWT with post 6-MWT lactate concentration and heart rate. COPD patients underwent spirometry, blood gas analysis and 6-MWT to evaluate distance walked, heart rate, capillary lactate (CL) concentration pre and post 6MWT, and desaturation with 6-MWT. 91 patients with all levels of obstruction were evaluated. HR and CL increased significantly post 6-MWT. The decrease in peripheral saturation of haemoglobin to oxygen observed with 6-MWT was also significant. The distance walked was shorter the greater the obstruction. The correlation analysis was significantly positive between FEV1 and distance walked, negative between FEV1 and HR at rest and negative between distance Continue reading >>

    I recently (couple weeks ago) started weights and also taking some protein powder (low carb - 1,8g per serving).
    As suggested I raised my protein intake and I'm somewhere around 1 to 1.2 protein ratio. Last couple days I used ketostix to test my ketones and it was negative. I'm sure I didn't exceed 20g carbs per day because I track all my food.
    Could that higher protein intake kick me out of ketosis?

    As far as I've been able to discover, there are no absolutely definitive answers to the excess protein => additional glucose => inhibition of ketosis? causal chain question.
    This is a good article: "If You Eat Excess Protein, Does It Turn Into Excess Glucose?" on ketotic.org.
    And here is a recent discussion on "After workout protein needs" on /r/ketogains.
    An important unresolved question is: is gluconeogenesis (the manufacture of new glucose by the liver using proteins and fat) a supply-driven process or a demand-driven process?
    If it is a supply-driven process, then it seems more plausible that excess consumption of protein will lead to higher blood sugar levels.
    But if it's demand-driven, then excess glucose might just be due to the slower removal of glucose from the blood-stream after protein has been eaten, causing a bit of a build-up.
    I think that it might vary a lot from person to person. The best is to measure your own blood ketone concentration before and after eating protein. (The ketostix method is not as reliable, particularly if you've just finished a work-out.)
    Edit: fixed link.

    It can, but it depends on various factors such as weight, activity level, etc.
    I asked the science behind it to to /u/gogge and he gave a very good explanation in another post.
    Fact is, if you are doing strength training you will need to increase your protein intake, otherwise you will not grow muscle. Also protein comes into play if you are eating at a deficit.
    If you are completely sure that protein is taking you out of ketosis, then drop your intake to 1.0 and see if you get back.
    How much do you weight, what % BF do you have, what kind of excercises are you doing and for how long?
    As a side note: don't rely on ketostsix to see if you are in or out of keto.

Lactate Levels - British Lung Foundation | Healthunlocked

could anybody,in laymans term,try and explain to me,lactate levels combined with COPD? joedimagio , so far as I know has it something to do with exercise where the lactate levels are been measured.It would be some how a benefit, but here is a link for a article I found. Hope it will explain a bit My understanding is that when we have normal levels of oxygen in our blood then it is used to turn blood sugar into carbon dioxide an water (respiration in our cells). If our oxygen levels are reduced, either because we are using it up quickly when exercising or when our breathing is poor, as in COPD, then instead of sugar being turned into carbon dioxide and water it becomes lactate (or lactic acid) ... called anaerobic respiration. So high levels of lactate would I think be connected with low blood oxygen .... athletes have to develop lactate tolerance when competing, I think high levels for long periods can be dangerous, undiagnosed diabetics can also have high lactate levels as low insulin levels stops oxygen being used in cells. postscript has summed it up pretty well, but while researching the subject I came across the following, which I thought interesting . . .

    I've done keto before, but this time I did it with EC stack.
    I started this monday at 194-196. Today I'm at 185.2-185.6.
    Is this too quick?
    Also before I forget, two weeks ago I did keto for 4 days and I got from 195 to 189, but I gave in and cracked and ate carbs, this time I have my motivations and goals set and I allow my self a cheat meal every now and then and have realized weight loss and control is an ongoing struggle, one meal wont kill me I just need to get back up and continue on, I can't lose all hope and just give up. It's this negative self limiting factor that would **** my diets up all the time.
    But as of today, this week I've gone from 195 to 185, is this mostly water weight, or is it fat? My parents have said my chest looks alot tighter and my face is a bit skinnier

  2. trippn

    Mostly water bro. Caffeine is a diuretic. Make sure u are drinking over a gallon of water minimum per day.

  3. crazyfool405

    to be honest initial weight loss depends on CALORIC INTAKE, and carbs.
    if carbs are at 300g, your going to drop about 2.5 lbs in water. 5 at most. this is why i urge every one to eat keto at maintence calories so they can see how much they actually lose from dropping carbs, and fat will determin your rate of weight loss after.

Lactic Acid Levels In Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Accomplishing Unsupported Arm Exercises

Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may suffer dyspnea when performing unsupported arm exercises (UAE). However, some factors related to the tolerance of the upper limbs during these exercises are not well understood. Our investigation was to determine if an unsupported arm exercise test in patients with COPD accomplishing diagonal movements increases lactic acid levels; also, we assessed the metabolic, ventilatory and cardiovascular responses obtained from the unsupported arm exercise test. The study used results of maximal symptom limited tests with unsupported arms and legs performed on 16 patients with COPD. In order to do the test, some metabolic, respiratory and cardiovascular parameters such as ), respiratory rate (RR), pulmonary ventilation (VE), heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) were measured during the exercise tests. Furthermore, blood lactate concentration was measured during the arm test. We detected a significant increase in the mean blood lactate , VE and RR from the resting to the peak phase of the UAE test. The mean values of and VE obtained at the peak of the UAE test corresponded to 52.5%, 50.0% and 61.2%, respectively, of the maxima Continue reading >>

    KETOACIDOSIS is the condition in which the body is producing too many KETONES, and the result is that the blood becomes acidic in nature.
    Ketones are formed when the body tries to digest its own muscle mass. This happens in time of extreme starvation.
    Now, in the case of a diabetic, since the insulin is not being produced (or not being used properly) the sugar (fuel) in the blood cannot get into the cells. So while there is plenty of fuel (sugar) in the blood (even too much....) the cells can't use it, and thus think they are staving.
    So the body tries to "digest itself", just the same as it would if you had nothing to eat for weeks. This produces ketones. A side effect of this is that even though you may eat like a horse, you constantly and drastically lose weight.
    Ketones are poisonous to the system, and if not cleared out they will damage the internal organs, especially the kidneys. But with all this "starvation" going on, the kidneys can't handle the overload. Many people with ketoacidosis end up with kidney failure -- which is fatal.
    There are two rather obvious external symptoms of ketoacidosis -- a sweet-smelling breath (often described as "fruity" or "almond-like" and very smelly urine.
    Of course, patient with ketoacidosis are also extremely tired, and often faint. Vomiting is often one of the last signs before the patient lapses into coma.
    Once in a coma, organ failure and death soon follow.
