Exploring Common Causes Of Abdominal Pain

Abdominal pain has many causes, some of which can be serious and require emergency care. Getting an accurate diagnosis is essential when you have abdominal pain, so you can get the treatment you need. Here is a look at some of the most common causes of abdominal pain. Pancreatitis Pancreatitis refers to inflammation of the pancreas. It can be chronic, lasting for years, or acute, which comes on suddenly. Although some cases of pancreatitis are mild, others can be life-threatening. It causes pain in the upper abdomen, often severe, which may radiate to the back and often gets worse after eating. It can also cause fever, nausea, vomiting, and rapid heart rate. The upper abdomen may also be sensitive to the touch. In the long term, you may experience oily stools and may lose weight without trying. Treatments vary, depending on the severity of your symptoms and the type of pancreatitis you have. Kidney Stones Kidney stones can cause excruciating abdominal pain, often in the lower abdomen, side, and back. Nausea and vomiting are also possible, and if the stones cause an infection, you may also develop a fever. When you have kidney stones, urination may be painful, and your urine may be Continue reading >>

    I just called Boots in Cambridge for Ketone testing strips and was interrogated like a criminal. They wanted to know why I wanted them, and I said I was testing for ketones, and then further questioning, so Isaid I was on a diet. She abruptly said, "Okay, right..I'm sorry, we're not allowed to sell them. Goodbye," and hung up. :confused:
    What am I missing? :rolleyes: I thought they were easily available and didn't know I was trying to purchase some restricted item. I know they are really for diabetics, but didn't want to be dishonest or rather, didn't think I had to be dishonest to purchase them.
    Are there restrictions on their sale in the UK? (I hav only been here a few months) Maybe I can do without them, but I was curious to know if I am in ketosis.
    Now I feel stupid for calling, and like I called to ask for ganja (marijauana). :(
    Bye for now :wave:

    Boots refused to sell my boyfriend Ketostix (that's the brand name) when he admitted he wasn't a diabetic, & they refused to give a reason. :mad: From what I've heard there aren't official restrictions on them, so I'm assuming Boots are just fascists. I don't have my boyfriend's scruples, so I went to Superdrug & lied- I said they were for my mum!:rolleyes: - but they had run out.
    Finally we got them from a company called Pharmacy4U, which I'm sure has a website (try Pharmacy4U.co.uk). After all that, though, we never use them any more! Maybe I will once I'm on maintenance. So don't worry too much about them :)
    Take care, Daisy

Acute Abdomen

Patient professional reference Professional Reference articles are written by UK doctors and are based on research evidence, UK and European Guidelines. They are designed for health professionals to use. You may find the Pelvic Pain in Women article more useful, or one of our other health articles. Synonym: acute abdominal pain See also the separate article on Abdominal Pain. The term 'acute abdomen' represents a rapid onset of severe symptoms that may indicate life-threatening intra-abdominal pathology. Pain is usually a feature but is not always the case. A pain-free acute abdomen is more likely in the elderly, in children and in the third trimester of pregnancy.[1] The differential diagnosis is extremely wide and definitive diagnosis is often difficult, particularly in primary care. This is due to the many different organs within the peritoneal cavity and the potential for referred pain. Abdominal pain is a common problem, ranking in the top three symptoms of patients presenting to accident and emergency departments, but only a few of those patients will have an acute abdomen. Management of the acute abdomen in primary care should focus on careful assessment to reach a different Continue reading >>

    I have been maintaining great results with my keto diet.
    In a few months I was considering resuming a low to moderate carbohydrate intake.
    The way I have always reintroduced carbs is by increase my daily consumption by 25-50 every week while replacing fat calories with them.
    After I've resumed a 150-200 carb per day diet, I usually will start to increase calories back to maintenance levels.
    I'm just wondering how you guys do it.
    Do you feel the need to slowly step up carb intake or just throw them all back in at once?
    Are there any benefits to what I've traditionally done, or am I just overly cautious about pancreatic stimulation?

    Are there any benefits to what I've traditionally done, or am I just overly cautious about pancreatic stimulation? thats pretty much exactly what i do, and its always worked well for me too. were u doing carb ups as part of a CKD, or just a regular keto diet? if just the regular, then its probably a good idea to introduce them back in slowly as carb digesting enzymes are down-regulated from lack of use and jacking up carb levels too fast might not be a good idea. but if u did some carb ups then itd probably be ok to introduce them a bit faster, but still not all at once. either way, as long as ur still at or under maintenance cal levels, all the carbs in the world wont make u gain fat.

The Etiology Of Abdominal Pain In Diabetic Acidosis*

The usual signs, symptoms, and laboratory findings in prediabetic coma are well known. The clinical picture of dehydration associated with malnutrition, polyuria, and odor of acetone on the breath, decreased intraocular tension, and Kussmaul breathing, when found in conjunction with sugar and acetone bodies in the urine make a clinical picture that could hardly be confused with any other condition. Other laboratory findings are a high blood sugar, a low CO2 combining power of the blood plasma, and leukocytosis. The white cell count sometimes rises above 65,0001 per cubic millimeter of blood. This picture is usually clear cut and offers Continue reading >>

    Hello
    For the last couple weeks I have been doing my best to stay under 50g daily. With a few weekend 20% exceptions, I have been fairly successful, and I feel great!
    My goal is to be in the single digit body fat range, and once I am there I will bump up the carb intake (more veggies, right now I eat meat + fat almost exclusively) for maintenance.
    My question is this - Has anyone noticed some HORRIBLE body odor? In particularly the more private regions?
    I noticed this a while ago. It comes and goes, but when its bad, its really bad. Is this just toxins exiting my body? Will it eventually go away? I have been reading many people's stories on how they don't smell, and have dropped deodorant use all together. I would really like to try this approach, just not sure how much longer until it happens.
    Thanks!

    I've been told the seeds' taste is different in a non-pleasant way. If I get fruit (pineapple in particular) it gets better.

    Yes, doghead - when I am dropping fat my face breaks out and I have a tendency not to smell so good. It'll pass.
