Ketosis Vs. Ketoacidosis (dka): What Is The Difference?

Let’s break it down so that you can understand exactly what ketosis is and how it differs from ketoacidosis. But the states they refer to are nothing alike. In this case, maybe mistakes are understandable. Many people who believe that ketosis is dangerous are mixing it up with another state called "ketoacidosis." The two words do sound very similar. And some people simply make mistakes. Profit motives tend to muddy up the works when it comes to getting clear, factual information about your health. Well, there are a lot of individuals and companies which all have their own goals and motivations. Where do these misperceptions come from? Here’s the thing though … that is all misinformation. You then Googled something like, "low carb dangerous" and found a list of link-bait articles informing you that low-carb is a ketogenic diet, and ketosis is a dangerous metabolic state which can be fatal. And then maybe someone said something to you like, "What are you thinking? Low-carb is a dangerous diet." If you are thinking about starting a low-carb diet, maybe you have mentioned it to some of your family or friends. By the time you finish reading this article, you will understand why lo Continue reading >>

    If he has a history of nauseating headache, the headaches could simply be migraine attacks, unrelated to his diabetes and tooth problem. This is the least alarming interpretation of the facts provided.
    Unfortunately, other possibilities are much more concerning. If he has a dental abscess, the possible complications in the presence of poorly controlled diabetes are numerous, as other posters have indicated. Visits to a dentist and a doctor would appear warranted.
    I hope it all proves to be minor and resolves without much trouble. The comments provided by healthcare providers describe some of the more serious problems that might develop. The Original Poster needs to read these judiciously.
    I suspect some physicians reading your question would immediately want to send a MedEvac helicopter to airlift your father to a major urban hospital. To grossly understate the situation, physicians are worrywarts. If you show us a hangnail, we're already worrying about your imminent need for amputation before you die from gangrene and sepsis because, believe me, we've seen it. No symptom, no matter how seemingly innocuous to a patient, is casually dismissed by a thoughtful doctor. To the contrary, we can't suppress the reflexive review of all the horrors we might be overlooking.
    Consequently, I hope the comments your question elicits are helpful rather than simply terrifying. Best wishes to you and your father.

    Could mean several things, but one of them is deadly dangerous, diabetes related, and easily preventable, so I'd suggest preventing that one right away.
    Tell your dad to drink lots of water, and take a bit of insulin if he has some.
    That way if he's working his way up to a Diabetic Ketoacidosis or an HHS attack, you can head it off right away. They both result from inadequate insulin levels and inadequate water levels, and can be triggered by an inflammation or infection (such as a tooth problem).

Diabetes Blood Sugar *Type 1 Diabetes Blood Sugar Over 500 | Type 2 Diabetes Blood Sugar Over 400 If You Want to REVERSE your Type 2 Diabetes and never worry about your blood sugar again, heres what you need: A recent medical breakthrough at Newcastle University has revealed 3 Proven Steps to Reverse Type-2 Diabetes. Click the link below to find out more. http://tinyurl.com/DiabetesDestroyerz -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Diabetes Blood Sugar *Type 1 Diabetes Blood Sugar Over 500 | Type 2 Diabetes Blood Sugar Over 400 When you leave your doctors office, do you ever wonder what hes not telling you? Every appointment, he tells you to eat less sugar and go on more walks, but arent there other ways to get your diabetes under control? Heres 3 tricks to manage your diabetes that your doctor wont tell you: 1- Eat More Fat You read that right. Eat more fat. Thats because fat helps your body absorb insulin. That means the more fat you eat, the easier itll be to manage your blood sugar. But heres the kicker: Its got to be the right type of fat. Youre looking for Unsaturated Omega-3 Fat. Heres some great sources: Fish Eggs (Any eggs labeled enriched have plenty of omega-3) Grass-fed beef (Theres lots of omega-3 in the grass) Do Some Pushups Or any kind of strength exercises. All the cardio your doctor tells you to do will increase your insulin absorption a little, but to really keep your body regulated youve got to get your entire body moving. The best way to do that is any exercise that focuses on strength. You want to avoid straining yourself, but make a habit of doing a few pushups every day, throw in some body squats, and soon youll be taking tighter control of your blood sugar. Not to mention itll get rid of stress, and give you plenty of energy. Relax Laying back and keeping cool are vital to regulating your blood sugar. Stress causes physical distress on the body which affects blood glucose levels. Not to mention, when youre stressed out its easy to overeat, which obviously wreaks havoc on your blood sugar. For easy relaxation, try out simple meditation or breathing exercises.

Is It Really Required To Control Blood Sugar In Type 1 Diabetes?

If you don’t control your blood sugar with Type 1 Diabetes, you will die much sooner than is normal. That is a fact, not advice. If you are willing to die much earlier than anticipated, then of course you can choose to not control your blood sugar. It’s your choice and you have the ability to commit suicide very slowly. If you have no one in your life who cares about you or depends on you, I see nothing wrong with your choice. If you have family and friends who will miss you, I think you’re being silly. If you have dependents such as children or pets, I think you’re being irresponsible and childish. It is entirely possible to use a fixed dosage of insulin and survive because that’s exactly what people did for a long time. They ate carefully chosen meals and that went fine. If you’re willing to consume the exact same grams of carbs at the same time each day and not exercise, that might be an option for you. Presumably your food will get boring and your lifestyle may suffer but it’s technically feasible, just not recommended because of how constricting it is. However, there is no method of living that will save you from having to dedicate any thought to the management o Continue reading >>

Can A Person With Diabetic Type 1 Survive Without Insulin Injection?

As the parent of a type 1 diabetic, the answer is no. I remember shortly after my son was diagnosed. I was still ignorant about low blood sugars. One day I came home and found him thrashing uncontrollably on the floor. I called 911. I asked the medic what my sons blood sugar was. She looked at me and asked “what blood sugar? She thrust glucose in his arm and saved his life. My son was 10 when he was diagnosed. After that moment, medics knew my son by his first name. I learned to always have peanut butter and jelly available. I called him the “numbers man.” He had to and still does test his blood sugar many times a day. He receives therapy because he tests it too many times. He came so close to dying, the doctor said plan his funeral. My son hated his illness and rebelled. Police always came with medics because he would wildly throw punches when his blood sugar was dangerously low. Once a neighbor I disliked, asked why the police and medics were always at my house. “Do you know how hard it is to have a meth and pot house?” I asked. I said the police just wouldn't leave me alone. My neighbor believed me and swore he would put an end to my criminal enterprise. You need a sen Continue reading >>
