    A couple of weeks back I decided to do a ketogenic experiment, I've been eating pretty low carbs for a while seeing as I'd removed grains from my diet (I occasionally had potato and rice) and got my carbs from veggies and some fruit. Thanks to /r/keto I managed to prep and plan everything properly and the first week I dropped all of the fruit, starchy vegetables, rice and upped my fat intake considerably. And felt terrible. BUT that is all part of the journey and I knew I'd going through that before I started so I just pushed on.
    By the end of the first week I cut my carbs further and upped my fat intake more. Towards the middle of the week I started to become "fat adapted" in the sense that I could function as a human being again. However, yesterday evening I made the conscious decision (not down to cravings) to come out of ketosis after continually assessing the whole journey and weighing up the pros and cons.
    The reasons I decided to stop
    I found that keeping such control over my macros was taking the enjoyment out of eating
    The huge rise in fat meant that I had to find huge supplementary sources of fat, called fat bombs by most keto followers, which after two weeks I just didn't want to eat
    Despite stabilising and having cravings disappear, my mood stabilise and rarely feeling hungry the way I felt just wasn't worth the hassle of staying in the diet
    Despite the fact that the body can obviously function in ketosis I'm not convinced it is in any way ideal for me and doesn't feel particularly natural
    Eating a ketogenic diet has helped my body burn fat for fuel and the experiment has taught me a lot and helped refine the way I want to approach food. In fact, it has been a complete success I just didn't choose to carry on with it. From now on I'll be eating a moderate carb diet (somewhere between 100g - 150g per day I'd guess in advanced) with more falling on exercise days and I'll be eating most of my carbs in the evening 2 - 3 hours before bed because I have come to believe that is an optimum time to have them. I also won't be scared of having a banana after working out (which I haven't done at all in the last two weeks because it wasn't possible in the early stages of ketosis)
    Anyway, I thought I'd post my experiences here in case anyone was interested.

  2. rockrunner

    Just curious...how did you determine you where in Ketosis?

  3. LiamT

    I was eating <20g of carbs a day and I had keto breath and urine... My intake of fat was 80% of my calories and I was taking in around 70g of protein a day.

Jardiance, Invokana, And Farxiga Double Risk Of Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Jardiance, Invokana, And Farxiga Double Risk Of Diabetic Ketoacidosis The June 8, 2017 edition of The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) has a To the Editor letter, titled Risk of Diabetic Ketoacidosis after Initiation of an SGLT2 Inhibitor, which is likely causing some concerns among doctors and type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients. It is about the safety of Jardiance, Invokana, Farxiga, and other diabetes medicines in the SGLT2 inhibitor class of diabetes drugs. A June 7, 2017 MedPage Today article, Study Warns of Diabetic Ketoacidosis With SGLT2 Inhibitors in T2D, provides a summary and some commentary about the recent medical study which is described in this June 2017 NEJM letter to the editor: The newest class of drugs for treating type 2 diabetes carries a greater risk for diabetic ketoacidosis compared to other classes of drugs, a new study suggests. Newly initiated use of an SGLT2 inhibitor was associated with a roughly twofold greater risk of diabetic ketoacidosis versus new initiation of a DPP4 inhibitor (HR 2.2, 95% CI 1.4 to 3.6), according to Michael Fralick, MD, of Brigham and Womens Hospital, and colleagues. It is important to know that if diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) Continue reading >>

    In response to the thread for hypokalemia. I noticed diabetic ketoacidosis is mentioned as one of the causes of hypokalmia in that thread.
    Ketoacidosis is more associated with hyperkalemia not hypokalemia. In management of ketoacidosis giving insulin cause hypokalemia by shifting potassium inside the cells.

  2. tommyk

    According to all sources that I am familiar with, in Diabetic Ketoacidosis, replenishing K+ is a key factor. I think you are referring to the "falsely elevated potassium" that can initially result with DKA. With the acidosis and dehydration, patients become potassium depleted. The committment acidosis will contribute to "shifting" potassium out of the cell giving you a falsely elevated potassium. The danger is if a patient is severly potassium depleted in the face of an acidosis, with the fluids correcting the acidosis, the insulin is going to shove more potassium into the cells thus acutely lowering the serum potassium level to potentially dangerous levels. If the potassium gets lower than 2.0-2.5 one is prone to provoking lethal arrhythmias.

  3. tommyk

    TOTAL BODY Potassium deficits are high in DKA even with paradoxically high K+ due to acidotic state, which shifts H+ into cells and K+ out of cells into blood. To reiterate, the K+ is PARADOXICALLY high, not truly high. Due to the dehydration, they WILL need potassium during the treatment. This can be a great trick the boards can pull on you to make you pick the wrong answer.
    However, you bring up a great point about the inital paradoxical effect. Still, Diabetic Ketoacidosis DOES cause hypokalemia. Patients with DKA have marked fluid and electrolyte deficits. They commonly have a fluid deficit of nearly 100ml/kg, and need several hundred millimoles of potassium ion (3-5+mmol/kg) and sodium (2-10mmol/kg), as well as being deficient in phosphage (1+ mmol/kg), and magnesium. Replacement of these deficits is made more difficult due to a variety of factors, including the pH derangement that goes with DKA. Mainly in children, an added concern is the uncommon occurrence of cerebral oedema, thought by some to be related to hypotonic fluid replacement.
    Hipp, there are several mechanisms for fluid depletion in DKA. These include osmotic diuresis due to hyperglycemia, the vomiting commonly associated with DKA, and, eventually, inability to take in fluid due to a diminished level of consciousness. Electrolyte depletion is in part related to the osmotic diuresis. Potassium loss is also due to the acidotic state, and the fact that, despite total body potassium depletion, serum potassium levels are often high, predisposing to renal losses. Does this all make sense?
    Thanks for listening,

    Just out of hospital following DKA

    I'm off work following recovery from recent keto-acidosis. Been T1 diagnosed for nearly 5 years but really struggle to accept my illness. Try and pretend I don't have Diabetes. Did anyone else out there have this problem? What will it take to get out of this denial? I'm 31 and thought I would be more sensible!!!

  2. vrocco1

    I'm very sorry you had that experience. How did you end up DKA? I'm guessing you skipped a dose of insulin?
    It has only happened to me once, and that was during a month long bout with the flu. I really learned my lesson on that one. Keeping your A1C low is a lot of effort, but keeping yourself out of the hospital does not take much effort at all.
    You may be suffering from a bit of depression, and that is why you are in denial. You might want to talk to your Doctor about that possibility. Denial is definitely our enemy. Depression is very common in diabetics.
    I hope you decide to spend some time with us. It really can help! I sure hope you feel better soon.

    Hi Bekky,
    I totally understand what you're going through! I was daignosed at 10 but had a couple of years when I was a teenager that I went into denial. I would still have my injections but would eat whatever I liked!
    I soon realised that this way of thinking was doing me no good and that I had to deal with it or go on feeling ill for the rest of my life so I started taking better care of myself. I also thought about the complications that could arise in the future and what that could mean for me...for example would I be able to have the family that I have always dreamed of?
    I have been in and out of hospital on many occassions with Ketoacidosis, due to viruses and stomach bugs etc, but the doctors never told me what it was! I didn't know anything about Ketoacidosis and because of this i had a really severe Ketoacidosis incident when I was 18. I was at university and was feeling progressively more unwell...I went to A & E where doctors failed to do any blood or urine samples and diagnosed me with anxiety! I also called another doctor out that night who gave me a sleeping tablet and left me in my room alone and with no medical assistance...I was found the next morning minutes from death..and was in Intensive care for a week.
    I totally understand how you must be feeling at the moment as it takes away all your energy and takes a while for you to start feeling stronger. The Ketoacidosis won't cause any long term damage to your health but you should be aware that not taking care of your diabetes or having an illness of any kind can cause Ketoacidosis. More often than not it is treated quickly and efficiently by the medical proffessionals but sometimes it isn't-like in my case-so always check for ketones if you start to feel unwell or your blood sugars run high.
    You won't be in denial forever..diabetes takes a long time to understand and come to terms with....at 10 years old I think it may have been easier for me to accept than for someone diagnosed in their 20's...but I still found it incredibly hard!
    You've done the right thing joining this site as there are so many great people out there to talk to and for the first time since my diagnosis 15 years ago I feel like I can offload my fears and anxieties and also share good news with people who can empathise with what I'm going through...We're all here to help and anytime you feel down tell us about it and we'll try to help! We all understand how you're feeling!
