The Alkaline Diet: An Evidence-based Review

The Alkaline Diet: An Evidence-Based Review The alkaline diet seems a bit too good to be true. Proponents of this diet suggest that replacing acid-forming foods with alkaline foods can improve health. They even claim that it can help fight serious diseases like cancer. There are actually quite a few people who swear by this diet and claim miraculous results... But is there any good evidence behind the alkaline diet? Let's have a look. The alkaline diet is also known as the acid-alkaline diet or alkaline ash diet. It is based around the idea that the foods you eat can alter the acidity or alkalinity (the pH value) of your body. When you metabolise foods and extract the energy ( calories ) from them, you are actually burning the foods, except that it happens in a slow and controlled fashion. When you burn foods, they actually leave an ash residue, just like when you burn wood in a furnace. As it turns out, this ash can be acidic or alkaline (or neutral)... and proponents of this diet claim that this ash can directly affect the acidity of your body. So if you eat foods with acidic ash, it makes your body acidic. If you eat foods with alkaline ash, it makes your body alkaline. Neutral Continue reading >>

    Why does Ketoacidosis cause coma? How is it treated?




    1 Answer







    I’m assuming that you do know that ketoacidosis does not have to mean that you have high blood sugar. It means that you have a high level of ketones in your blood, which are usually by-products of your body trying to break down fatty acids for fuel it’s not getting from your food intake.
    It is usually treated with fluids, electrolytes, and insulin. It is much more common in those with type 1 diabetes then type 2, but it can still occur.

    You can look up more specific information on diabetes at the Mayo Clinic site.
