Diabetic Ketoacidosis And Hyperosmolar Hyperglycemic State In Adults: Clinical Features, Evaluation, And Diagnosis

INTRODUCTION Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state (HHS, also known as hyperosmotic hyperglycemic nonketotic state [HHNK]) are two of the most serious acute complications of diabetes. DKA is characterized by ketoacidosis and hyperglycemia, while HHS usually has more severe hyperglycemia but no ketoacidosis (table 1). Each represents an extreme in the spectrum of hyperglycemia. The precipitating factors, clinical features, evaluation, and diagnosis of DKA and HHS in adults will be reviewed here. The epidemiology, pathogenesis, and treatment of these disorders are discussed separately. DKA in children is also reviewed separately. (See "Diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state in adults: Epidemiology and pathogenesis".) Continue reading >>

    Hey sorry for the weird topic but its a serious question
    Has any guy had any issues on weak erections during low carb diet?
    * During my high fat diet (All organic/seasonal veggies & grass fed / organic / hormone free meats)
    180 g fat (40-60 g Sat / 10-15 g Poly / 105-130 g Mono)
    90 g carbs
    120 g protein
    * Now my diet is still high fat but a little higher in carbs (And erections are all back to normal like i'm 18 again)
    160 g fat (40 g Sat / 10-15 g Poly / 100-110 g Mono)
    130 g carbs
    130 g protein
    So if anyone has heard of anything, i looked online and have heard of some stuff about weak erections & high fat but all just anecdotal. Nothing else in life has changed - Exercise is still the same, 3 strength training sessions a week & 3 Randoms (swim/tennis etc)
    Oh and Blood pressures all normal too ... changes between sys 100-125 & dis 62-84 but i only have one kidney
    I do feel hornier and just generally more "interested" in sex on a "higher" carb diet (as in above 110 g a day) Im 27 years old.
    Its not a joke question but....Jokes are welcome
    Cheers Guys

    Cheers Guys Well I haven't ever had issues even while on Keto at 30g carbs a day however many men do report erection issues and sex drive problems while on low carb. You can search the forum here for threads and see what pops up! LOL! Couldn't help it.
