Diabetic Hypo

Afgelopen vrijdag (1 december) werd er tijdens het NOS Journaal een item uitgezonden, waarin informatie over diabetes type 1 zat die niet juist was. Dit stukje is vervolgens door de NOS uit het item gehaald, dus niet in latere journaals uitgesteld. Maar voor mij was dit de zoveelste keer dat er door medische mensen verkeerde informatie over diabetes wordt gedeeld. Dat jij niet weet wat diabetes is en wat je moet doen als ik buiten bewustzijn raak, dat snap ik. Ik wist tien jaar geleden ook niets van diabetes. Maar dat medisch onderlegde mensen verkeerde informatie delen op nationale tv, tijdens ehbo-cursussen et cetera dat vind ik heel kwalijk. Verkeerd handelen in geval van een hypo kan namelijk zorgen voor dodelijke gevolgen! Daarom deze video. Wat je nooit moet doen als iemand een hypo heeft, een korte uitleg over diabetes en wat je wl moet doen. Hoi ik ben Shanti, een twenty-something die van haar hobby haar werk maakte en nu ze is afgestudeerd zich vol passie inzet om dat bedrijf verder te laten groeien. Ik ben dol op het maken van video's en dat is wat ik hier doe. Ik zou het leuk vinden als je je, geheel gratis, abonneert via http://www.youtube.com/user/shantikeu... Zo blijf

False Hypo Symptoms: Diabetes Questions & Answers

False Hypo Symptoms: Diabetes Questions & Answers Q: I have had Type 1 diabetes for 40 years. Recently Ive been noticing low blood sugar feelings (glazed, unable to concentrate) even when my blood sugar levels are normal or high. Sometimes I even have ketones when this happens. Is this whats causing my symptoms? A: Symptoms of low blood glucose ( hypoglycemia ) tend to change over time. Most people who have had diabetes as long as you have lose the early warning signs (shaking, sweating, rapid heartbeat) and only experience cognitive (mental) symptoms, such as the ones you described. Interestingly, these types of symptoms can occur in different situations. Unusually high blood glucose, particularly when you dont spend a lot of time in a high range, can temporarily impair mental function and lead to tiredness, confusion, and mood changes. It is easy to confuse these with symptoms of hypoglycemia, so it is important to check your blood glucose whenever symptoms occur. You dont want to start popping glucose tablets when your blood glucose is 300 mg/dl (16.7 mmol/l). Another situation that can cause hypoglycemic symptoms is a rapid decline in blood glucose, such as falling from 300 (1 Continue reading >>

Hypoglycaemia, or hypo for short, means low blood glucose levels less than 4 mmol/l*. This is too low to provide enough energy for your bodys activities. Symptoms Hypos can come on quickly and everyone has different symptoms, but common ones are: feeling shaky, sweating, hunger, tiredness, blurred vision, lack of concentration, headaches, feeling tearful, stroppy or moody, going pale. Why do hypos happen? Theres no rule as to why they happen, but some things make it more likely: excess insulin, delayed or missed meal or snack, not enough carbs, unplanned physical activity, and drinking large quantities of alcohol or alcohol without food. Sometimes there just is no obvious cause. How to prevent a hypo - Dont miss a meal. - Eat enough carbohydrate. - Eat extra carbohydrate if you are more active than normal. - Take your tablets and/or insulin injections correctly. - Dont drink alcohol on an empty stomach or drink too much alcohol. Treating a hypo If you are conscious, treat your hypo immediately with 1520g of fast-acting carbohydrate: - Small glass of sugary (non-diet) drink - At least three glucose tablets - Five sweets, such as jelly babies - Small carton of pure fruit juice - Glu

    Actually, the clue is in the term you used. If the doctor said Diabetic Ketoacidosis then the suffer does, in fact, have diabetes ... type 1 diabetes to be more specific. Type 2 diabetics get what's called Non-Ketotic Hyperosmolar Syndrome.
    If the word diabetic was not mentioned, i.e. ketoacidosis, by itself, this can be brought about by starvation. It's often detected in people that are starving in countries such as Ethiopia, Sudan, etc. It can also be brought about by people having an eating disorder. Anorexics and bulimics often have the first stage of ketoacidosis, which is called ketosis. There's actually a condition that some diabetics suffer from that has been given the name of diabulimia. This is where they purposely do not take their insulin in order for their blood sugars to get out of control, resulting in ketoacidosis. During this process, because the body's cells are unable to use insulin (seeing as there's none present), in an attempt to stay alive the body uses fat and muscle reserves, which results in weight loss.

Managing A Hypo

When your blood glucose level drops below 4mmol/L, this is called hypoglycaemia, or a ‘hypo’ for short. A hypo can be a scary thing for you to go through, but they can be managed effectively. There might be times when you have too much insulin in in your blood stream. This may be because you accidentally injected more than you needed, because you’ve been very active, because you haven’t eaten or you’ve had less carbohydrate than you thought. No matter the cause, find out how to manage hypos. What should I do during a hypo? Having a hypo can be a frightening experience. Symptoms are different for everyone (and you may not get any at all), but they may include: • Shaking • Sweating • Dizziness • Hunger • Blurred vision • Difficulty concentrating • Feeling anxious • Changes in behaviour If you feel like this, you should check your blood glucose level. If it is low you will need to eat or drink something that contains carbohydrate to bring your blood glucose back up into the normal level. How much carbohydrate you need will depend on how low your blood glucose has dropped but in general, one carbohydrate portion, or 15 grams of carbohydrate, will bring your bl Continue reading >>

    I was shopping at Fiesta today and they have a good selection of untypical meats. I thought I'd check and see if they had beef tongue. It was $8 a pound. I had bought all sorts of things lately like ribeye, brisket, boneless beef ribs, and chuck steaks for no more than $5 a pound. I was shocked that something like tongue would be so expensive.

  2. Chris_W

    I hope not; it will probably get too expensive.

    Tongue is a great LC/ZC protein. It's tender and has a nice texture and flavor.
