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

Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Author: Osama Hamdy, MD, PhD; Chief Editor: Romesh Khardori, MD, PhD, FACP more... Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is an acute, major, life-threatening complication of diabetes that mainly occurs in patients with type 1 diabetes, but it is not uncommon in some patients with type 2 diabetes. This condition is a complex disordered metabolic state characterized by hyperglycemia, ketoacidosis, and ketonuria. The most common early symptoms of DKA are the insidious increase in polydipsia and polyuria. The following are other signs and symptoms of DKA: Malaise, generalized weakness, and fatigability Nausea and vomiting; may be associated with diffuse abdominal pain, decreased appetite, and anorexia Rapid weight loss in patients newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes History of failure to comply with insulin therapy or missed insulin injections due to vomiting or psychological reasons or history of mechanical failure of insulin infusion pump Altered consciousness (eg, mild disorientation, confusion); frank coma is uncommon but may occur when the condition is neglected or with severe dehydration/acidosis Signs and symptoms of DKA associated with possible intercurrent infection are as follows: Gl Continue reading >>

    > When do you start to lose weight only after you are in ketosis?

    Hi,
    It took me 5 days to get into ketosis (waaaay longer than I anticipated). I'm assuming I had a lot of built up carbs in my system before I started on my diet. I haven't lost any weight. In fact, I've gained 3 lbs! I'm wondering if the weight will start to come off now that I'm in ketosis. Is that when it begins? Also, I am really starving without the carbs, so I'm eating a lot more than I usually would. Can I be gaining weight from this diet??
    Thanks!

    Don't Panic!!
    It entirely depends not only on how much you are eating, but what type of food whether or not you could gain weight.
    I notice that anything high in salt makes me retain water. Cheese, cured meats, salted pork rinds, pickles. These are Atkins friendly and will not hinder ketosis per se, but may cause you to retain water. Think back over the last 5 days and remember if you have eaten these foods or anything else, such as broth which may be high in salt.( Read labels for hidden salt/sodium.)If so, you may be losing fat while retaining water and it could register on the scale as a gain. When you stop eating the hidden salt, it may be a day or two before you experience your body flushing all that extra water quickly and then finally your scale will show a loss.
    Another common error is relying a lot on artificially sweetened products, which a lot of LCers have noticed can stall their weight loss. Diet soda is notorious, so are Atkins bars. Not everybody has a problem with these things, but you may find out that you do.
    Those are just the possibilities that come to my mind, I'm sure other seasoned LCers can think of other things. Don't ditch the diet, you've barely started and there are bound to be setbacks along the way.
    Meanwhile, if you are extra hungry, perhaps you could post an example of a day or two of your menu so some of the more sophisticated LCers can help you spot trouble?
    Good luck!

    Low carb diets will not cause you to lose weight unless you are overweight. Do you consider yourself overweight? Nevertheless they will make you much healthier.

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Ketoacidosis is a metabolic state associated with high concentrations of ketone bodies, formed by the breakdown of fatty acids and the deamination of amino acids. The two common ketones produced in humans are acetoacetic acid and ß-hydroxybutyrate. Ketoacidosis is a pathological metabolic state marked by extreme and uncontrolled ketosis. In ketoacidosis, the body fails to adequately regulate ketone production causing such a severe accumulation of keto acids that the pH of the blood is substantially decreased. In extreme cases ketoacidosis can be fatal. Ketoacidosis is most common in untreated type 1 diabetes mellitus, when the liver breaks down fat and proteins in response to a perceived need for respiratory substrate. Prolonged alcoholism may lead to alcoholic ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis can be smelled on a person's breath. This is due to acetone, a direct by-product of the sp

Trekk Series | Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Mark is a 7-year old boy who was brought into the ED by his mom who noticed he has been more fatigued than usual over the past day. Three days ago, he had rhinorrhea and a cough, and since then has been complaining of generalized abdominal pain, nausea, 2 episodes of nonbloody, nonbilious emesis today, and increased thirst. He is otherwise healthy, takes no medications, has no allergies, has up to date immunizations and has not travelled recently. Other family members including parents and a 4-year old sister are healthy without symptoms. Mark’s initial vital signs are T-37.2, BP 90/60, HR 140, RR 30, SpO2 98% RA, cap refill 2 seconds, with dry appearing mucous membranes. His weight is 30kg. He is able to answer your questions, but appears quite fatigued, lying supine on the examination stretcher. What are your next steps? The child in this stem appears unwell, so it is appropriate that you are concerned. Mark’s systolic BP is around the borderline minimum value for his age (a quick way of calculating minimum SBP = > 70 + (age x 2), which would be 84 in this case), he is tachycardic and appears dehydrated. Mark should be placed in a monitored bed with adequate nursing support, Continue reading >>

    Your muscles will become sore while they recover from the localized effect of lactic acid or lactate. If it is systemic, that is to say, through out the whole body, the person will experience nausea, light headedness, rapid breathing and pulse. Don’t confuse it with ketoacidosis in diabetics. That is very different.

    Cramping due to anaerobic respiration (which is what produces the lactic acid in the first place).

My Site - Chapter 15: Hyperglycemic Emergencies In Adults

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state (HHS) should be suspected in ill patients with diabetes. If either DKA or HHS is diagnosed, precipitating factors must be sought and treated. DKA and HHS are medical emergencies that require treatment and monitoring for multiple metabolic abnormalities and vigilance for complications. A normal blood glucose does not rule out DKA in pregnancy. Ketoacidosis requires insulin administration (0.1 U/kg/h) for resolution; bicarbonate therapy should be considered only for extreme acidosis (pH7.0). Note to readers: Although the diagnosis and treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) in adults and in children share general principles, there are significant differences in their application, largely related to the increased risk of life-threatening cerebral edema with DKA in children and adolescents. The specific issues related to treatment of DKA in children and adolescents are addressed in the Type 1 Diabetes in Children and Adolescents chapter, p. S153. Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state (HHS) are diabetes emergencies with overlapping features. With insulin deficiency, hyperglycemia causes urinary Continue reading >>

    This will be a huge field in coming years, I was a bit "meh" when I first heard about them - kinda like the idea of the whole raspberry ketone scam - however having seen more information there actually seems like there's a fair bit of promise in them.
    I'm still a bit wary of the idea, keto-adaptation takes a fair while to properly take, I'm not 100% convinced flooding the body with ketones is ideal considering even a regular low-carber still spills a bunch of ketones in urine and breath. I'll need to see some data on actual utilisation vs waste.

    Keto Force contains the endogenous ketone body beta-hydroxybutrate (BHB) in sodium and potassium salt form. Ingestion of Keto Force will raise the levels of blood ketones (BHB and AcAc) for 2.5-3.0 hours after ingestion. When taken an hour before exercise this product has been shown to decrease the amount of oxygen consumed at a given power output.

    It is suggested that this product be consumed during the initial stages of a ketogenic diet (three times a day for first 2-3 days) to accelerate ketosis and ease metabolic transition. The product may also be consumed prior to high intensity aerobic exercise to enhance performance.
    *This product has an alkaline pH 10-11 so it is best mixed with an acidic beverage (i.e. diet lemonade, grapefruit juice, etc) prior to ingestion.
    Contains 480mL.
