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

Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Author: Osama Hamdy, MD, PhD; Chief Editor: Romesh Khardori, MD, PhD, FACP more... Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is an acute, major, life-threatening complication of diabetes that mainly occurs in patients with type 1 diabetes, but it is not uncommon in some patients with type 2 diabetes. This condition is a complex disordered metabolic state characterized by hyperglycemia, ketoacidosis, and ketonuria. The most common early symptoms of DKA are the insidious increase in polydipsia and polyuria. The following are other signs and symptoms of DKA: Malaise, generalized weakness, and fatigability Nausea and vomiting; may be associated with diffuse abdominal pain, decreased appetite, and anorexia Rapid weight loss in patients newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes History of failure to comply with insulin therapy or missed insulin injections due to vomiting or psychological reasons or history of mechanical failure of insulin infusion pump Altered consciousness (eg, mild disorientation, confusion); frank coma is uncommon but may occur when the condition is neglected or with severe dehydration/acidosis Signs and symptoms of DKA associated with possible intercurrent infection are as follows: Gl Continue reading >>

    I have been doing keto for one week. I have had some great benefits already, including great skin, feeling alert and cheerful and no farting!
    I noticed something really scary today - my belly has is protruding and is very rounded and flabby-feeling. This is not at all normal for me and is the kind of weight-gain that I fear. I am horrified. I started the diet because I think it's the most healthy way to eat and because I carry a lot of weight around my bum and thighs, but to get a fat belly, which I have never had before, is not at all what I was hoping for :(
    I have been drinking lots of water and have added salt as advised. I have been sticking religiously under 20g carbs per day and have not cheated even once.

    You've only been on keto for one week. Whatever it is, it's not weight gain. Report back in about a month.

What is ALKALOSIS? What does ALKALOSIS mean? ALKALOSIS meaning - ALKALOSIS pronunciation - ALKALOSIS definition - ALKALOSIS explanation - How to pronounce ALKALOSIS? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Alkalosis is the result of a process reducing hydrogen ion concentration of arterial blood plasma (alkalemia). In contrast to acidemia (serum pH 7.35 or lower), alkalemia occurs when the serum pH is higher than normal (7.45 or higher). Alkalosis is usually divided into the categories of respiratory alkalosis and metabolic alkalosis or a combined respiratory/metabolic alkalosis. Respiratory alkalosis is caused by hyperventilation, resulting in a loss of carbon dioxide. Compensatory mechanisms for this would include increased dissociation of the carbonic acid buffering intermediate into hydrogen ions, and the related excretion of bicarbonate, both of which lower blood pH. Hyperventilation-induced alkalosis can be seen in several deadly central nervous system diseases such as strokes or Rett syndrome. Metabolic alkalosis can be caused by rep

Acidosis And Alkalosis | Harrison's Principles Of Internal Medicine, 19e | Accessmedicine | Mcgraw-hill Medical

Systemic arterial pH is maintained between 7.35 and 7.45 by extracellular and intracellular chemical buffering together with respiratory and renal regulatory mechanisms. The control of arterial CO2 tension (Paco2) by the central nervous system (CNS) and respiratory system and the control of plasma bicarbonate by the kidneys stabilize the arterial pH by excretion or retention of acid or alkali. The metabolic and respiratory components that regulate systemic pH are described by the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation: Under most circumstances, CO2 production and excretion are matched, and the usual steady-state Paco2 is maintained at 40 mmHg. Underexcretion of CO2 produces hypercapnia, and overexcretion causes hypocapnia. Nevertheless, production and excretion are again matched at a new steady-state Paco2. Therefore, the Paco2 is regulated primarily by neural respiratory factors and is not subject to regulation by the rate of CO2 production. Hypercapnia is usually the result of hypoventilation rather than of increased CO2 production. Increases or decreases in Paco2 represent derangements of neural respiratory control or are due to compensatory changes in response to a primary alteration Continue reading >>

    Hi, I've been reading on various websites when you're doing low-carb diets that drinking coffee regularly and alcohol will slow down fat loss. Ive lost a decent amount of weight while still drinking 2 or 3 cups of black coffee a day and still enjoy having a jack and diet coke occasionally. Im wondering if i cut both out will it be significantly faster?
    Thanks

  2. anbeav

    I'm not sure where you heard this. Coffee has no negative effect and likely is beneficial. A ketogenic diet is one of the few diets that actually allows the caffeine in coffee to mobilize fat. Alcohol slows down most diets. 1. It has calories that people don't account for and 2. When there is alcohol in your system, all other macronutrient metabolism is halted meaning it inhibits fat metabolism. Specific to keto, some alcohol has carbs so you have to choose wisely but many still drink on keto. Most hard liquor is low to no carb so as long as you're accounting for the calories it's fine.

    Good answer, but I suspect that you meant to write:

Kussmaul Breathing - An Overview | Sciencedirect Topics

Nicholas J. White, in Manson's Tropical Infectious Diseases (Twenty-third Edition) , 2014 Hyperventilation or Kussmaul's breathing (sometimes termed respiratory distress) is a poor prognostic sign in malaria. In the tachypnoea associated with high fever, breathing is shallow compared with the ominous laboured hyperventilation associated with metabolic acidosis, pulmonary oedema or bronchopneumonia. Acute pulmonary oedema (acute respiratory distress syndrome) may develop at any time in severe falciparum malaria. It is particularly common in pregnant women, but rare in children. In some cases malaria ARDS may be difficult to distinguish clinically from pneumonia. The heart sounds are normal. The central venous pressure and pulmonary artery occlusion pressures are usually normal, the cardiac index is high and systemic vascular resistance is low. This points to an increase in capillary permeability (unless the patient has been overhydrated). The chest radiograph shows increased interstitial shadowing and a normal heart size. Julian L. Seifter, in Goldman's Cecil Medicine (Twenty Fourth Edition) , 2012 Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, anorexia, polydipsia, and polyuria. Patients ofte Continue reading >>

    Hi All.
    I am experiencing insomnia from ketosis. Anybody else experiencing this?
    I was wondering whether the body has to be in ketosis in order to lose weight? I am seriously considering upping my carbs to the Primal Blueprint recommended 50-75 grams a day which would knock me out of ketosis, I think. This would possibly help me regain my sleep, but may slow down or eliminate my weight loss. How have people done on low carb, as opposed to very low carb for weight loss?

  2. jaywood

    Sorry to here about the insomnia Its not a nice place to be and wont help your weight loss.
    I've not heard anyone complain of it before though. So I wonder why you are sure it's the ketosis and not another source.
    I'm not saying it isn't but I know when I started on this WOE I changed a lot of things at one time and I would struggle to say any effect was caused by This or That.
    But to answer your point about lower carb diets. Yes people are successful on them :-)

  3. Liz53

    No, you do not have to be in ketosis. Most people are in ketosis eating between 20 and 50 g of carbs per day. Reducing carbs below current levels is going to be good for you no matter whether you reach ketosis or not. Many people enjoy being in ketosis because hunger may be reduced, head more clear, other things, but it is not strictly necessary.
    I started eating LC back in 2004 with South Beach, eating between 50 and 100 grams of carbs per day. I ate that way for 3-4 years, never in ketosis. I lost about 10% of my body weight very rapidly, in 3 or so months, then struggled to lose more. When I did Atkins for the first time, 6+ years later, I lost exactly the same amount in the first 3 months, then struggled to lose more. The difference is that I was eventually able to lose more.
    Not everyone needs to go through the shock of induction. Some people ease into LC and Primal Blueprint would be a very healthy way to do that. Good luck to you!
    PS And yes, ketosis gives me insomnia at first as well. I assume it is a combo of increased hunger as I'm adjusting to less food and increased energy from more readily burning fat. I eventually get over it in a few weeks, but I am quite sensitive to not enough sleep and feel pretty rotten till I get to that point.
