    Go to an ACTUAL drug store -- like Rite Aid or CVS -- and look near the diabetic supplies. Grocery-store pharmacies generally won't stock them, but "real" drug stores always carry them.
    Go ahead & buy the (cheaper) generic brands. They all work great.

    I just tried a low-carb (well, essentially NO carb) diet for about a week and had significantly increased frequency during this time (started feeling better when I added carbs back). I didn't put two and two together until yesterday, when I began to research it a bit and came upon this tidbit:
    "When carbs are severely restricted (less than 30-40 grams a day), the body goes into a state of ketosis. Ketosis is when the amount of ketones present in the bloodstream grows due to the body's inability to access carbs for fuel. Excess ketones are released through frequent urination, which can be hard on the kidneys."
    Makes sense. I just wanted to warn others to be cautious when trying a low-carb diet. It really seemed to increase my symptoms.

    YEPPERS!!! Low or no carb diets are not good for you... You should watch that you get GOOD CARBS -- these are the ones that have fiber and protein -- look at the labels --
    "Diabetes in a can" (pop) for instance, has high carbs, but no protein and no fiber -- bad news and it can crash your system... remove it from your diet and that alone can increase your health.
    Vegetables in all color groups are also very important -- the phytochemicals (plant chemicals) in food are all responsible for different parts of the well being of our bodies -- eat from all the food groups and all the food colors -- except white -- remove white breads/pastas, etc...
    Also, same with LOW FAT diets -- it isn't a good idea to remove fat from your diet -- it IS a good idea to remove BAD FATS from your diet. The things that are natural (nuts, salmon, and olive oil type products are the good oils -- they are from the food -- the manufactured fats (chips, margarine, etc..) are the BAD fats and you can generally say that if the food is MAN MADE it isn't going to be good for you -- chose whole foods that are natural -- from the plant, the tree, the ground, etc.. not from a box, a bag, a tub, etc..
    Shop the outside of your grocery store - stay out of the aisles -- that is the best way to get fresh foods... at least the MAJORITY of your diet should come from the outside of the grocery store ---
    Processed = bad news
    Fresh Raw = good news
    The choice is simple -- choose good fresh, raw, unprocessed foods!!!
    To your good health!

  3. ShePurzz

    ooops -- It sounded like I meant NO WHITE stuff -- cauliflower, potatoes, and some other white foods are good for you -- however, stay away from bleached (white) flour, sugar and other such stuff...

What is DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS? What does DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS mean? DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS meaning - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS definition - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... 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

    Print Overview Diabetic ketoacidosis is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones. The condition develops when your body can't produce enough insulin. Insulin normally plays a key role in helping sugar (glucose) — a major source of energy for your muscles and other tissues — enter your cells. Without enough insulin, your body begins to break down fat as fuel. This process ...

This is followed by ketonuria – excretion of ketone bodies in urine. The overall picture of ketonemia and ketonuria is commonly referred to as ketosis.
