Causes Of Hyperglycemia Mnemonic: The Eight Is

Causes of Hyperglycemia Mnemonic: The Eight Is Hyperglycemia is a common finding encountered in the emergency department and on the hospital floor. The two main conditions associated with hyperglycemia are diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state (HHS). Aside from treating the symptoms of these conditions and lowering the glucose, it is important to determine the etiology so that the underlying problem may be addressed. An article published in Clinical Diabetes in March 2011 defined their Five Is for the main causes of hyperglycemia. I wont list them all here because I think that their list can be improved. I modified and added to their list (along with consulting my ER preceptor and UpToDate) to come up with Eight Is for the causes of hyperglycemia. The Eight Is mnemonic for the main causes of hyperglycemia is: Infection (think pancreatitis, pneumonia, and UTI) Infraction (think patient noncompliant with therapy) Iatrogenic (think prescription drug interactions, e.g. steroids) Idiopathic (think new onset type 1 diabetes or other cause) Now you can remember the Eight Is that cause HyperglYcemia! The next time you are confronted with a patient with very high Continue reading >>

    Grrrr...
    I kept telling myself "It's okay that my weight has basically been the same since October. It's probably water & I'm still losing inches."
    Well, I just took my measurements 5 weeks after the last time I took them and they're the same. One or two went up, one or two went down.
    I've been keto since the beginning of July. I was losing weight steadily, stalling a bit, the usual. Down a total of 37 pounds... until I decided to stop counting calories. I've barely lost any weight since then- about 3 months- and I apparently haven't been losing inches either.
    I'm so upset and frustrated.
    I still have plenty to lose. 5'0 27 yr old female. Started at 241 and down to 204. Still firmly obese. Really annoyed. I don't really eat nuts. I guess I'm going to cut out my coffee? I dunno, but I'm pretty upset. :-/
    ETA: I still wake up hungry every day. I still feel the need to eat 3 meals a day though snacking is little or none. Everything I eat is fatty. I don't track anything, but I stay under 20g carbs.

    I really want to cry.

    Personally, I'm not an advocate of counting calories. But if that's what works for you, why don't you go back to that method?

At the American Association for Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) 25th Annual Scientific and Clinical Congress, W. Timothy Garvey, MD, outlines the new AACE/ACE clinical practice guidelines for the comprehensive management of patients with obesity.

Aace/ace Clinical Practice Guidelines

    Why does Ketoacidosis cause coma? How is it treated?




    1 Answer







    I’m assuming that you do know that ketoacidosis does not have to mean that you have high blood sugar. It means that you have a high level of ketones in your blood, which are usually by-products of your body trying to break down fatty acids for fuel it’s not getting from your food intake.
    It is usually treated with fluids, electrolytes, and insulin. It is much more common in those with type 1 diabetes then type 2, but it can still occur.

    You can look up more specific information on diabetes at the Mayo Clinic site.
