D-lactic Acidosis With Encephalopathy Subsequent To Short Bowel Syndrome In Bariatric Surgery. A Case Report In Emergency Room

D-lactic acidosis with encephalopathy subsequent to short bowel syndrome in bariatric surgery. A case report in emergency room Roberta Rocchi, MD Laura Magrini, MD Enrico Ferri Emergency Medicine Department, S. Andrea Hospital, Rome, Italy We describe the case of a patient admitted in Emergency Department with D-lactic acidosis associated to encephalopathy secondary to short bowel syndrome following bariatric surgery. D-lactic acidosis with encephalopathy is a severe complication of short bowel syndrome. It is characterized by metabolic acidosis due to increase of lactic acid determining neurological signs and symptoms of encephalopathy. In short bowel syndromes patients there is a malabsorption or lack of absorption of carbohydrates; this causes an accumulation of lactic acid that reduces pH and promotes bacterial growth, mainly lactobacillus, which in turn produce D-lactic acid (1,2). D-lactic acid is metabolized, and eliminated more difficult than L-lactic acid normally produced (2). Patients with short bowel syndrome secondary to intestinal bariatric surgery can show D-lactic acidosis from few months to several years after the surgery (2). Patients with D-lactic acidosis show Continue reading >>

    Hello everyone. I am having a bit of confusing on the mixed information I have found on getting my body to reach ketosis stage. Some say Mayo, sour cream and cheeses are allowed some say No! Which is it? Does anyone out there truly know the correct information to this. Also can anyone recommend a good whey protein w/out carbs or very little carbs? This is to be used in conjuction with the foods allowed for the ketosis stage. So far I have a pretty good idea of what is and isn't allowed but I'd like to know a little more.
    Also does anyone know the average weekly weight I can expect to lose once I am under this stage? My goal weight to lose is 20 lbs.
    Lookng forward to some great advice! Thanks!

    From my experience. Mayo, Chesse, Suor Cream are good on Keto, ON MODERATION. You have to strive to keep the net amount of carbs lower than 30g a day if possible. Some people can go higher and stay in ketosis. I was eating 100g a day and I still had traces of ketones when tested with the stix. As far as whey protein, I'm taking UN Ultra Whey Pro. Very good taste, but any one with almost no carbs should do you good. Weight loss is also an individual thing. The first week you can lose quite a bit of weight, I lost 8 lbs. After that I think that 2 lbs a week is good weight loss, any more and you might be losing muscle, unless you have a big amount of fat to lose.

    Lookng forward to some great advice! Thanks! I believe Mayo, sour cream and cheeses are ok on keto ONLY on your cheat meals. As far as the actual diet is concerned, those things all contain empty carbs and they will kick you out of ketosis. So i say yes they're ok, but only on your cheat meals. As far as how much weight you'll loose, the average lbs you'll loose (assuming your doing everything correctly) is about 1-3lbs a week. When i did it there were a few of the first couple of weeks i would loose 5lbs but i'm pretty sure it was probably water weight. I used to weigh myself about every 2 weeks, no need to depend on the scale, i prefer the mirror cause it wont lie to you. Also on the protein, you can send me a PM and i'll let you in on which is best.

4 Signs Something is Wrong With Your Bowel Movements | bowel movement Bowel Movements may seem like just another mundane activity. A part of our daily ablutions. We however have so many other things going on in our busy lives, that we fail to pay attention to the wellness of our bowel. It is easy to overlook certain signs and issues that need our attention. Today' video will discuss 4 Signs Something is Wrong With Your Bowel Movements. 1. Irregular Bowel Movement, A healthy individual should have a bowel movement at least 1 to 3 times a day. If you are not excreting waste and toxins from your body at least once a day, it can lead to health issues. Pooping more than 5 times a day is also a warning sign, and you must consult a doctor immediately. 2. Blood, Appearance of blood in your feces on a regular basis is dangerous. It can be a symptom of colorectal cancer or evidence of polyps. If appearance of blood is accompanied with chills, weight loss and fever, you may have a high level of bowel disorders. 3. Size and Texture, Your poop texture and size says a lot about your bowel conditions. If the waste is hard, difficult to pass and in small lumps, you are constipated. Fluffy pieces o

D-lactic Acidosis In Children With Short Bowel Syndrome: A Relevant Clinical Condition

1Department of Translational Medical Science, Section of Pediatrics, University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy; 2Department of Paediatric Surgery, Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, Manchester, United Kingdom; 3Department of Paediatric Surgery, Donauspital, Vienna, Austria. Introduction: D-lactic acidosis (D-LA) is an uncommon complication in children with Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS). This condition is related to excess of production of D-lactate by intestinal bacteria when carbohydrates (CHO) are not completely absorbed in the small bowel. We retrospectively analyze the presentation of D-LA in children with SBS treated at the Royal Manchester Childrens Hospital. Methods: Thirty-five short bowel patients underwent autologous bowel reconstruction from January 2010 to January 2017. Data collected included population demographics, bowel length, antibiotic treatment, CHO intake. Eight children (23%) developed 23 episodes of D-LA in total during the study period. They all presented with neurological symptoms, fatigue and lethargy or behavioral changes. Two further children although symptomatic did not have high level of D-lactate. Results: All children enjoyed free diet and wer Continue reading >>

    Nutritional ketosis can be very beneficial. Ketosis is when your internal glucose and insulin levels are low enough that your body no longer wants to store excess energy as fat, and instead, breaks down your fat stores and converts them into energy in the form of ketones. A ketone body is actually a more efficient fuel source than glucose (ketones require 2 molecules of oxygen to produce ATP, the main chemical source of energy, whereas glucose requires 4 molecules of oxygen). You can achieve nutritional ketosis by limiting your carbohydrate intake to less than 20grams per day, and instead eating a very high fat diet with >80% of your calories coming form fat. Starvation ketosis is another way to get into ketosis, and as the name implies, requires not eating at all. That could be anywhere from 14–48 hours and still be potentially healthy. After 48 hours, however, you likely get more harm than good from starvation ketosis. Once in ketosis, many people experience greater energy levels, improved mental clarity, and increased fat loss just to name a few. There is a well describes adaptation period of about 2 weeks called the “keto flu” where your body adjusts to ketosis and you may actually feel worse at first. But once your body adapts, you will start to feel the benefits. There are also ketone supplements available now that can help you get in to ketosis. Ket-OS by Pruvit is one supplement. Check out Dustin Schaffer’s website to learn more about the keto lifestyle and exogenous ketone supplements

    Everyone reacts differently. Theoretically, there is nothing wrong with ketones being the primary source of fuel for the body. In-fact, It has been proven to be more adequate in supplying energy that carbohydrates.

    The difference between "Ketosis" and "Ketoacidosis" is that the latter is the extreme ketosis that has developed so much that it has acidified the blood, which in effect, will kill you. A lot of people THINK that ketoacidosis is only caused by diabetes, but this is not true. It can also be caused by things like Alcohol, etc. that mess with the liver (though the Diabetic form, called DKA, is the most common that is seen in practice.) Essentially what this means is that if your in "Ketosis", you are sort of half way to a state of ketoacidosis, though still in a controlled state. This means that your more likely to end up in a state of ketoacidosis, if exposed to anything which could cause it. (the acidosis part comes from the fact that when ketones are burnt at the cellular level, they release by-product acids similar in chemical structure to acetone.) You also have to remember, that Ketosis is an Altered state, which one is not in by default, (a healthy newborn will NEVER be in a state of ketosis upon birth, regardless of whether the mother is on a ketogenic diet or not.) Therefore, one could reasonably conclude that this is probably not a good idea, or we would have been born doing it.

Approaches To D-lactic Acidosis

lassesen 10:12 pm on September 22, 2015 My last post cites a 2009 article that found: Faecal microbial flora of CFS patients and control subjects. The mean viable count of the total aerobic microbial flora for the CFS group (1.93108 cfu/g) was significantly higher than the control group (1.09108 cfu/g) (p<0.001). There was a significant predominance of Gram positive aerobic organisms in the faecal microbial flora of CFS patients. This study confirms the previous observation (22), and those reported by other investigators (23) that there was a marked alteration of faecal microbial flora in a sub-group of CFS patients.. In this study the mean total count for Enterococcus and Streptococcus spp. for the CFS group was 52% of the total aerobic intestinal flora, which is significantly higher than the 12% seen in the control subjects (p<0.01). largely old hat to readers of this blog, a microbiome dysfunction. But the study went on to some new interesting stuff, a possiblemechanism: In this study the NMR-based metabolic profiles of the three intestinal micro-organisms, E. faecalis., S. sanguinis. and E. coli showed that the Gram positive bacteria (Enterococcus and Streptococcus spp.) produ Continue reading >>

    Hi Tammy
    When I first started I felt like I needed to go all the time~ glycogen dump.
    If you have a fever or burning or lower back pain, I would call your MD.
    Feel better

  3. AnnetteW

    Tammy, I haven't had that problem.
    Glycogen dump is an interesting idea.
    Did you try an internet search on low carb and UTI?
    Keep drink a lot either way, and go to doc if necessary. Good luck.
