NCLEX tips and strategies on how to avoid 3 common mistakes students make when taking the NCLEX-RN or NCLEX-PN exam. Mistake 1: panicking when they don't get a certain amount of questions. Most students go into the NCLEX exam hoping to get either 75 or 85 questions because if they don't get this amount of questions they feel like they "may have" failed the exam. It is normal to receive a random number of questions on the NCLEX. So, if your computer doesn't shut off at that magic number of questions, keep going and give it your best. Mistake 2: waiting too long to take the exam after graduation. After you graduate nursing school, schedule to take the exam within 1-2 months. The nursing concepts are fresh on your mind and chances are you just got done taking exit exams which primed you for NCLEX. So, don't wait 6-8 months to schedule the exam...take it soon. Mistake 3: practicing NCLEX questions but not reading the rationales. It is best to study for the NCLEX exam by practicing questions, but you must go back and read the rationales of the questions you got right and wrong, especially the questions you got wrong. Then you need to go back in your study resource and read the areas you don't understand. Remember NCLEX questions are critical thinking (not fact based) so you need to thoroughly understand the material to pass. #NCLEX #NCLEX Review #Nursing #Nurse Free NCLEX review quizzes: http://www.registerednursern.com/nurs...

    I was also looking for a thread on expired test strips. I only make an assumption you have covered this but didn’t see a thread. Is my search flawed or have you really not explored expired test strips? (I assume I just did a bad search.) Or is it possible this one was too obvious to even have its own thread?

    My guess is that they works just fine. But it is just an opinion. We haven’t had any expire, so unless someone has some expired ones laying around…

    So I went the the keto page and read a fair amount of their faqs page but I'm not sure what they are trying to accomplish.
    With weight loss
    isn't is widely accepted on most of reddits health related subs that Calorie is the only thing worth mentioning when it comes to weight management.
    With health
    I could probably dig up some links if requested but I'm pretty sure it's known that high fat diets are contributors to heart disease.
    the preferred source of energy coming from carbs, why is this all of a sudden a problem?
    there are plenty of great healthy foods with high fats, but also many with saturated fats as well, I didn't see that mentioned in the faqs page. fine eat your sat. Fats.
    One last statement, the faqs makes light of cholesterol and states that "you only need to worry about LDL" which gives the impression that cholesterol can be completely ignored as long as you control LDL which i don't believe it true either. There is a healthy range on both HDL and LDL for a reason, you can't just ignore one.
    TL:DR keto sounds shitty what am I missing?
    edit ITT: "your ignoring my citations because your biased, also all of your citations are dumb"

    The hardest part of losing weight is hunger. Keto is a way of dealing with it. Some people on keto actually forget to eat.
    Your comments show a few misconceptions.
    High fat is not unhealthy.
    fat (ketones) can be used for energy. The production of ketones is not as fast as energy from carbs so it depends on the type of activity.
    Saturated fats are not as much of a concern as pushed by political sources.
    The science on cholesterol does not support the fixation on total cholesterol. The trig:HDL ratio may be the best predictor of health and that is improved with keto. Keto does skew some common markers but those markers are generally proxies for others that are harder to measure. If you're on keto, you should get an advanced cholesterol test.
    keto sounds shitty what am I missing?
    It's not for everyone but for some people it's a lifesaver.

    This is what it is. Keto isn't magic, it's still pretty much CICO, just easier to do by cutting out those foods that are so challenging not to binge on. Sure, giving up sugar and carbohydrates is hard initially, but it also makes it rather challenging to overeat, and easier to re-estimate what a "healthy portion" is for food. If you can't ever have "that slice of cake" or "just one coke" without breaking ketosis, it becomes easier to diet.

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 blood sugar, low blood pH, and ketoacids in either the blood or urine. The primary treatment of DKA is with intravenous fluids and insulin. Depending on the severity, insulin may be given intravenously or by injection under the skin. Usually potassium is also needed to prevent the development of low blood potassium. Throughout treatment blood sugar and potassium levels should be regularly checked. Antibiotics may be required in those with an underlying infection. In those with severely low blood pH, sodium bicarbonate may be given; however, its use is of unclear benefit and typically not recommended. Rates of DKA vary around the world. About 4% of people with type 1 diabetes in United Kingdom develop DKA a year, while in Malaysia the condition affects about 25% a year. DKA was first described in 1886 and, until the introduction of insulin therapy in the 1920s, it was almost universally fatal. The risk of death with adequate and timely treatment is currently around 1–4%. Up to 1% of children with DKA develop a complication known as cerebral edema. The symptoms of an episode of diabetic ketoacidosis usually evolve over a period of about 24 hours. Predominant symptoms are nausea and vomiting, pronounced thirst, excessive urine production and abdominal pain that may be severe. Those who measure their glucose levels themselves may notice hyperglycemia (high blood sugar levels). In severe DKA, breathing becomes labored and of a deep, gasping character (a state referred to as "Kussmaul respiration"). The abdomen may be tender to the point that an acute abdomen may be suspected, such as acute pancreatitis, appendicitis or gastrointestinal perforation. Coffee ground vomiting (vomiting of altered blood) occurs in a minority of people; this tends to originate from erosion of the esophagus. In severe DKA, there may be confusion, lethargy, stupor or even coma (a marked decrease in the level of consciousness). On physical examination there is usually clinical evidence of dehydration, such as a dry mouth and decreased skin turgor. If the dehydration is profound enough to cause a decrease in the circulating blood volume, tachycardia (a fast heart rate) and low blood pressure may be observed. Often, a "ketotic" odor is present, which is often described as "fruity", often compared to the smell of pear drops whose scent is a ketone. If Kussmaul respiration is present, this is reflected in an increased respiratory rate.....

    I woke up this morning feeling sweaty and I could have sworn I smelled cat pee.
    Feeling a bit frightened that perhaps my cat had left me a surprise in my bedroom, I sniffed around but the smell followed me everywhere. That's when I gave myself a good sniff and voila, discovered that the odor was coming from me.
    Yay, I am "smelly cat" from Friends.
    Anywho, I was wondering if this is a sign of ketosis. I have heard that sweat and urine take on a fruity acetone odor, but I have never heard anyone describe it as cat pee before. Just a bit curious.
    Also, how do you manage to not um, reek when around other people? Body sprays and such are an obvious solution, but the way I am sweating....probably have to spray myself with half the bottle to cover up my litter box scent.
    On a positive note, I am feeling better. Have more energy and was able to jog last night. Only issue I had with jogging was that my stomach began to cramp. I am thinking that is possibly from dehydration so I am going to push more water and see if maybe my potassium levels are off.
    Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
    Sincerely,
    Stinky

    Okay, now my pee smells like buttered popcorn. Maybe my sweat smelled like cat pee this morning because I had coffee way early in the morning with my breakfast before taking a nap.
    Perhaps the coffee seeped out through my sweat while I slept?
    Just scared me a bit. I read that it could be a sign of muscle being used as fuel due to carb intake being too low. I am not measuring the net carbs with the subtraction of the fiber grams, but measuring the grams of carbs as grams of carbs.
    The last two days my total daily carb intake has been extremely low, like 4% or lower.
    Wondering if I am eating too much protein and too little fat?
    According to ******.com my percentages are as follows:
    fat 63%, carbs 4%, protein 31% and fiber 5.2 grams
    That seems okay.
    Just don't want to make myself sick or so something dangerous. To top it all off I discovered that the Atkins book I ordered was the wrong one....so I put an order in for the DANDR which I am hoping will arrive here soon.
    Thank you all for reading

    Try drinking more water. 8-10 8oz glasses a day should be fine. When in ketosis your body has to eliminate the ketones from the fat and you will smell different than normal. Your breath will smell bad as well...I just chew sugar free gum and brush several times a day. Once you are sufficiently hydrated the odors will be a lot better. Pick up the original Atkins book. It actually explains a lot of the science of this.
