The California DUI breath testing device is designed to measure to blood alcohol concentration by getting a sample of your deep lung air. However, the breath test has been successfully challenged for thousands of DUI defendants on the basis of mouth alcohol, showing imperfections with the device and otherfactors that tend to interfere with the accuracy of the machine. However, a California DUI blood test offers more opportunities to successfully challenge the results, that is, you're supposed blood alcohol concentration reading. The reason for this is simple. Because your results are preserved in the form of a blood sample, your blood alcohol concentration can be independently re-tested and, therefore, challenged more effectively. For example, if your DUI defense attorney can prove that certain contaminants were present in the blood vial that would cause your BAC to register higher than it should have, or if the medical personnel who collected your sample failed to comply with certain procedures, your attorney can disprove the prosecutor's case. Our Glendora DUI defense attorney offers free-in person consultations to discuss the range of possible defenses that may be available in y

Asknadia: Convicted Of A Dui Because Of My Dka

Dear Nadia: I was arrested and charged with a DUI (driving under the influence) while experiencing DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis) and was convicted. There was no information any doctor would elaborate on. My attorney said there was no other option than to plead guilty. Vic B Dear Vic: I am sorry to hear about you’re your conviction. Your DKA should not have turned into a conviction—as if diabetes is not expensive already. There’s much to say about what happened to you, which by the way is not a rare occurrence. Suspicion of DUI is confirmed in almost every US state and municipality by a breathalyzer test. The device, first offered in 1954, quickly became police and sheriff departments’ favorite non-invasive means of determining alcohol levels. But a major complaint against breathalyzer tests is that they can mistake DKA for high alcohol levels. Many—perhaps most—law enforcement officers are still not aware of DKA; what it is and how its symptoms can manifest as drunkenness. You didn’t say whether your attorney was one who specializes in DUI cases. An attorney who knows DUI laws well is probably also likely to know about DKA. If so, he/she can be in a good position to hav Continue reading >>

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

    Does anyone ever experience DKA symptoms after having a cold/flu? I think my cold is gone, but, I'm experiencing extreme nausea. It's very awful. I'm taking small 2u doses every hour. Keeping an eye on my blood sugar. Is this common? I have to work tomorrow and I do not want to lose my hours.

Fda Drug Safety Communication: Fda Revises Labels Of Sglt2 Inhibitors For Diabetes To Include Warnings About Too Much Acid In The Blood And Serious Urinary Tract Infections

[12-4-2015] A U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) safety review has resulted in adding warnings to the labels of a specific class of type 2 diabetes medicines called sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors about the risks of too much acid in the blood and of serious urinary tract infections. Both conditions can result in hospitalization. Patients should stop taking their SGLT2 inhibitor and seek medical attention immediately if they have any symptoms of ketoacidosis, a serious condition in which the body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones. Symptoms of ketoacidosis include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, tiredness, and trouble breathing. Patients should also be alert for signs and symptoms of a urinary tract infection, such as a feeling of burning when urinating or the need to urinate often or right away; pain in the lower part of the stomach area or pelvis; fever; or blood in the urine. Contact a health care professional if you experience any of these symptoms. Health care professionals should assess for ketoacidosis and urinary tract infections in patients taking SGLT2 inhibitors who present with suggestive symptoms. Ketoacidosis associated with the Continue reading >>
