A case of a pediatric patient poisoning after ingestion of metformin , glimepiride and sulpiride, he was presented to the emergency service with symptoms and signs of hypoglycemia. Using a risk assessment based approach, the management of glimepiride and metformin overdose is discussed. Glimepiride overdose invariably results in profound hypoglycemia that requires resuscitation with IV dextrose and the use of octreotide as an antidote. Metformin overdose rarely causes problems. The acute sulpiride poisoning is poorly reported in the medical literature. Pediatric; Suicide attempt; Poisoning; Metformin; Glimepiride; Sulpi Continue reading >>

    Every time I am in Ketosis, the tip of my tongue tingles and I find myself rubbing my tongue all over my teeth all day long. Is this pretty common? Has anyone else experienced this? Why is this happening? It goes away as soon as I am out of ketosis.

    yes, sometimes. And when I have not eaten/drank in a while the metallic taste can get quite powerful.

    Ketogenic diets are diuretic relative to high carb diets which promote water retention. I've found that drinking more water (a lot more water) helps. Before I learned about ketogenic diets I found that I had similar symptoms when I took Adderall (which also tends to dry you out).

Metformin Side Effects: Side Effects of Metformin: Metformin and Diabetes

Side Effects Of Metformin Are More Serious Than You Think

The Side Effects of Metformin can range from not so serious, to deadly, are the risks of Metformin and Glucophage side effects worth it? This page will give you information that might be able to help you decide that for yourself. Also known as Glucophage, this is an antidiabetic medicine most often used in those with Type 2 Diabetes who are also overweight. It’s also used extensively in women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a condition known as PCOS, which is often accompanied by higher blood sugar readings which often benefit from the blood sugar lowering effects of Metformin. While at first glance it seems that Side Effects of Metformin are rare, a closer look and a little math show that there are some serious problems that can occur when taking this drug, and others that can and should be prevented easily, but are usually not due to a medical community that simply does not use nutritional supplements in the prevention of even well-known, easily preventable Glucophage side effects. Vitamin B12 Deficiency Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid Deficiency are well-known and well-studied side effects of Metformin. Despite the fact that there have been many studies confirming this problem ov Continue reading >>

What is MATERNAL DEATH? What does MATERNAL DEATH mean? MATERNAL DEATH meaning - MATERNAL DEATH definition - MATERNAL DEATH explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Maternal death is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as "the death of a woman while pregnant or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, irrespective of the duration and site of the pregnancy, from any cause related to or aggravated by the pregnancy or its management but not from accidental or incidental causes." The world mortality rate has declined 45% since 1990, but still every day 800 women die from pregnancy or childbirth related causes. According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) this is equivalent to "about one woman every two minutes and for every woman who dies, 20 or 30 encounter complications with serious or long-lasting consequences. Most of these deaths and injuries are entirely preventable." UNFPA estimated that 289,000 women died of pregnancy or childbirth related causes in 2013. These causes range from severe bleeding to obstructed labour, all of which have highly effective interventions. As women have gained access to family planning and skilled birth attendance with backup emergency obstetric care, the global maternal mortality ratio has fallen from 380 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births in 1990 to 210 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2013, and many countries halved their maternal death rates in the last 10 years. Worldwide mortality rates have been decreasing in modern age. High rates still exist, particularly in impoverished communities with over 85% living in Africa and Southern Asia. The effect of a mother's death results in vulnerable families and their infants, if they survive childbirth, are more likely to die before reaching their second birthday. Factors that increase maternal death can be direct or indirect. Generally, there is a distinction between a direct maternal death that is the result of a complication of the pregnancy, delivery, or management of the two, and an indirect maternal death. that is a pregnancy-related death in a patient with a preexisting or newly developed health problem unrelated to pregnancy. Fatalities during but unrelated to a pregnancy are termed accidental, incidental, or nonobstetrical maternal deaths. The most common causes are postpartum bleeding (15%), complications from unsafe abortion (15%), hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (10%), postpartum infections (8%), and obstructed labour (6%). Other causes include blood clots (3%) and pre-existing conditions (28%). Indirect causes are malaria, anaemia, HIV/AIDS, and cardiovascular disease, all of which may complicate pregnancy or be aggravated by it. Sociodemographic factors such as age, access to resources and income level are significant indicators of maternal outcomes. Young mothers face higher risks of complications and death during pregnancy than older mothers, especially adolescents aged 15 years or younger. Adolescents have higher risks for postpartum hemorrhage, puerperal endometritis, operative vaginal delivery, episiotomy, low birth weight, preterm delivery, and small-for-gestational-age infants, all of which can lead to maternal death. Structural support and family support influences maternal outcomes. Furthermore, social disadvantage and social isolation adversely affects maternal health which can lead to increases in maternal death. Additionally, lack of access to skilled medical care during childbirth, the travel distance to the nearest clinic to receive proper care, number of prior births, barriers to accessing prenatal medical care and poor infrastructure all increase maternal deaths. Unsafe abortion is another major cause of maternal death. According to the World Health Organization, every eight minutes a woman dies from complications arising from unsafe abortions. Complications include hemorrhage, infection, sepsis and genital trauma. Globally, preventable deaths from improperly performed procedures constitute 13% of maternal mortality, and 25% or more in some countries where maternal mortality from other causes is relatively low, making unsafe abortion the leading single cause of maternal mortality worldwide.

Common Diabetes Drugs Associated With Increased Risk Of Death

Follow all of ScienceDaily's latest research news and top science headlines ! Common diabetes drugs associated with increased risk of death Compared to another popular drug, three widely used diabetes medications are associated with a greater risk of death, a large new analysis finds. Compared to another popular drug, three widely used diabetes medications are associated with a greater risk of death, a large new analysis finds. The results were presented June 25 at The Endocrine Society's 94th Annual Meeting in Houston. The drugs, glipizide, glyburide, and glimepiride, are known as sulfonylureas, which help decrease blood-sugar levels among type 2 diabetes patients by stimulating the pancreas to produce insulin. In the past, these medications were considered comparable to one another in terms of effectiveness and safety. Recently, however, research has shown some sulfonylureas may be safer than others. These findings led to this latest research, which compared them to another type of blood-sugar-reducing drug known as metformin. All four medications are available under low-cost, generic labels. "We have clearly demonstrated that metformin is associated with a substantial reduction Continue reading >>

    Hello all,
    I’m a 5’4, 145 pound, 20 year old female, 27% body fat who works out (kickboxing) for about 1 to 1.5 hours a day. I’ve been on Dairy free Keto and doing 16:8 IF for about 3 weeks now and have gained 3 pounds. I was 142 when I started Keto. The macros I follow are 1207 calories, 90 g of Protein, 20 g of carbs and then usually around 80ish g of fat until I feel full. I meal prep ahead of time on Sundays so all my meals are planned and I don’t cheat. With lots of water, exercise, taking a multivitamin/B Complex/Green Tea Extract, dairy free (so no cheese or anything), or artificial sweeteners, I don’t know why I’m not losing any weight on Keto. I’ve seen this work for so many people and have been doing extensive research as to why it won’t work for me. I’ve tried recalculating my macros and gotten these 2 results:
    upping my calories to 1324 calories and 80 g of protein with 20 net carbs, 103 g of fat
    lowering my calories to 1177 and doing 103 g of protein, 20 net carbs and 73 g of fat.
    These two seem completely different macros and I don’t know which one to follow since what I do right now is in the middle of both.
    An example of lunch and dinner I have during IF are like 8 oz of ground turkey, 2 eggs and 1/2 an avocado for lunch and a tuna salad with spinach, flax seed, MCT oil and 1 egg for dinner. With TONS of water- I fill up my hydroflask (32 oz) around 5 times a day.
    I’m just saddened that I haven’t lost ANY weight on Keto when it seems to work for everyone else. I’ve gotten blood tests done as well and my hormones are fine. My goal weight is 120 so I do have a significant amount of pounds to go and would appreciate any advice from you! I have even stopped all nuts and nut butters because I read that those could be an impediment to weight loss. I’m considering doing an egg fast in a few days for 3 days to see if that brings about any change.
    If it helps, I never got the keto flu (maybe because I was around 40-50 g of carbs to begin with), I’ve been tested and found 0 hormonal or thyroid issues, I TRACK EVERYTHING, my ketostix say that I am in ketosis and don’t know what else to do at this point.
    Thank you so much for your time- your journey is SO incredibly inspiring and I would hope to some success on Keto. Open to ANY advice at all! Please help!

    My instagram ketokween1996 has a lot of my meals and their macros, calories and such! I made this to be more accountable of myself!

    I have some things that come to mind after reading your post.
    First, being in ketosis doesn’t mean being fat adapted. It takes time, 3 weeks is a short time. Your body needs to adapt to your new lifestyle. And I really mean lifestyle, you shouldn’t consider ketosis as a diet but a new way of life.
    Second, I think your protein intake is too high. You should eat 1 to 1,5 g of protein per kg of lean bodyweight. I don’t think that your lean mass is 90 kg . Decreasing your protein intake means increasing your fat intake.
    Third, you seem to be in the diet mentality like a lot of us women. You shouldn’t count calories. During your keto adaptation, your only concern should be to eat under 20g of carbs, moderate protein and fat to satiety.
    Finally, you should take your body measurements (chest, waist, hips, thighs and arms) to track your progress.

    I hope it helps. And keep calm and keto on.
