Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious complications of untreated diabetes. In this complication, severely insufficient insulin levels in the body results into high blood sugar that leads to the production and buildup of ketones in the blood. These ketones are slightly acidic, and large amounts of them can lead to ketoacidosis. If remained untreated, the condition leads to diabetic coma and may be fatal. Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) gets triggered by a stressful event on the body, such as an illness or severe lack of insulin. DKA is more common in people with type 1 diabetes. In some cases, identification of DKA is the first indication that a person has diabetes.

    I have been eating paleo or primal for about 2 weeks now and the results are great. I have lost around 8cm around both the waist and hips (my only measurements). I dont know how much i weigh now or before i started but my clothes fit better! My only problem is that my urine has changed colour(it was quite light and has changed to strong yellow) and is very strong smelling.
    Sample intake of everything i put in my body including supplements:
    Upon waking - broad spectrum probiotic, water 300ml
    30 minutes later - mixed vegetables(100 grams) sauteed in coconut oil finished off with three whole eggs to make a frittata or omelette type thing. With breakfast i take 2 coq10 50mg, 1 glutathione (reduced) 50mg, 1 complete b complex, 1 NAC 400mg / ALA 200mg and about 10ml of strong fish oil.
    10 mins later - cup of red bush tea with coconut milk , 400ml
    Lunch - 200g cold meat (cooked myself - no processed stuff - usually some slow roasted sirloin) with spinach, watercress and roquet mixture, onions, cucumber, tomatoe, capsicum etc. Topped with about 10ml of olive oil,lemon and garlic dressing (homemade), water 400ml
    Mid after noon - maybe another red bush tea with a touch of lemon and a tiny amount of honey (i know but i have almost gotten rid of fructose completely - dont judge me!)
    Dinner - Sardines/ Rib eye steak/ homemade paleo patties with some steamed veggies. Water 300ml, red bush tea again with 2 more coq10 and 2 vit d , calcium and magnesium complexes to aid good sleep.
    I sometimes snack on berries or some almond butter.
    I am 32 yrs old, male and work around 30 hours a week in a physically undemanding job. I am stood but no heavy labour. I sleep 8 - 9.5 hrs a night am in a loving relationship and am quite unstressed apart from waiting on a visa decision to emigrate from the dying uk to the vibrant healthy antipodes.
    I have a few inklings as to what it is but can anyone tell me if this is dangerous?
    I am aware that i am not drinking a lot

    Constipation can cause this. The toxins that have been re-absorbed into the bloodstream, through the intestinal walls, are filtered by the kidneys and passed in the urine.
