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 b

How To Treat Ketoacidosis

Fri, 11/19/2010 - 14:57 -- Richard Morris Immediately drink a large amount of non-caloric or low caloric fluid. Continue to drink 8 to 12 oz. every 30 minutes. Diluted Gatorade, water with Nu-Salt and similar fluids are good because they help restore potassium lost because of high blood sugars. Take larger-than-normal correction boluses every 3 hours until the blood sugar is below 200 mg/dl (11 mmol) and ketones are negative. It will take much more rapid insulin than normal to bring blood sugars down when ketones are present in the urine or blood. Often, one and a half to two times the normal insulin dose for a high blood sugar will be necessary. Higher insulin doses than these will be needed if there is an infection or other major stress. If nausea becomes severe or last 4 hours or more, call your physician. If vomiting starts or you can no longer drink fluids, have a friend or family member call your physician immediately, then go directly to an emergency room for treatment. Never omit your insulin, even if you cannot eat. A reduced insulin dose might be needed, but only if your blood sugar is currently low. When high blood sugars or ketoacidosis happen, it is critical that you Continue reading >>

    High Blood Sugars with No Ketones

    Question:
    So my boyfriend has had Type 1 Diabetes for over 10 years now and while having High Blood Sugars he has never had any ketones. Everytime he tests it is always negative. Even with a Blood Sugar of 500. What does this mean? What is his body using for fuel? Should I be alarmed? Thanks!

    Interesting... perhaps your bf is still producing that tiny bit of insulin which is what that is keeping him from developing into DKA but not enough to regulate his bg?

Should I be alarmed? Thanks! It just means that there is enough circulating insulin for for the body's glucose requirements to be satisfied. Ketones are produced when fat or muscle are broken down. And large amounts of ketones are only produced if there is inadequate insulin for glucose to be used as fuel to keep the body ticking over.

Confused...having A Hypo With High Ketones!!!

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community Confused...having a hypo with high ketones!!! This morning I checked my BS levels (fasting) as usual and they were 2.7...I also have a blood ketones monitor that I test every other morning just to make sure that my ketone levels are normal. Now, this morning during my hypo I thought I would test my ketone levels and they were reading at 3.1!!!! Of course, I was very shocked as I am in hypo mode and not feeling particularly unwell, just the usual hypo symptoms, which I have now treated. I am so confused as I associate high ketone levels with having high BS levels. Can anyone explain to me how this has happened. In my 10 years of having T1 I have never had high ketone levels like this before. Should I be worried? What do I need to do? Thanks for your help. M x Ketones are a by-product created when there is not enough glucose to fuel the body's needs, so the body burns it's fat reserves to create energy. Generally, this can happen when there is either: not enough insulin in the body to convert the glucose into energy (with high BG readings) when there is not enough Continue reading >>

Large Ketones - Low Blood Sugar!??

This site uses cookies. By continuing to use this site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies. Learn More. Last night, dd went to bed. About an hour later she started sweating Since she was around 1 years old, she started to sweat after she fell asleep. I have asked ALL her peds, they all said it was normal. Last night was different, she was drenched. Her bs dropped about 30 points, but still normal. She continued to drop points, and sweat beyond relief. She finally stopped sweating, but was hot and clammy, and red the whole night. She continued to drop all night, and I brought her up. She didn't get dangerously low, because I was checking her so much. This morning I tell her to check ketones. I don't know why, she was low all night, and woke up with a low, but normal number. LARGE KETONES! Finally go the blood ketone meter, showed .0.2 So, within an hour, ketones were totally gone. She drank, drank, drank, ate carbs and got Novolog. Okay... My question, how the heck did she get LARGE KETONES with low blood sugar!? Google is not my friend with this question Called the doc, and they want me to get this new ped to do blood on tests on the sweating. Ketones just means you are burnin Continue reading >>

We become insulin resistant when our body fat can’t store any more energy. Excess energy is then stored in the liver, pancreas, heart, brain and other organs that are more insulin sensitive. We also see increased levels of energy in o ...

Insulin normally plays a key role in helping sugar (glucose) — a major source of energy for your muscles and other tissues — enter your cells. Without enough insulin, your body begins to break down fat as fuel. This process ...

    Blood sugar levels that are too high (hyperglycemia) can quickly turn into a diabetic emergency without quick and appropriate treatment.
