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

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious, life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus. DKA is characterized by the triad of hyperglycemia, anion gap metabolic acidosis, and ketonemia. It is part of a spectrum of hyperglycemia on which lies hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state (HHS). Though the two are distinct entities, they do share some commonalities. DKA is caused by the reduced effect of insulin, either due to deficit or reduction of levels, with concomitant elevation of counter regulatory hormones (glucagon, catecholamines, cortisol, and growth hormones), generally due to a precipitating stress. Increased gluconeogenesis, glycogenolysis, and decreased glucose uptake by cells leads to hyperglycemia, while insulin deficiency leads to mobilization and oxidization of fatty acids leading to ketogenesis. Although DKA may be the initial manifestation of diabetes, it is typically precipitated by other factors. It is critical for a clinician to identify and treat these factors. Infection can be found in 40-50% of patients with hyperglycemic crisis, with urinary tract infection and pneumonia accounting for the majority of cases. DKA is a life-threatening medical emergency with a mort Continue reading >>

    [font=papyrus, cursive]detoxing your mind
    [font=papyrus, cursive]today's scripture
    [font=papyrus, cursive]"keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life" (proverbs 4:23).
    [font=papyrus, cursive]today's word
    [font=papyrus, cursive]when something is toxic, it's poisonous; it can destroy you. when we go around dwelling on the wrong thoughts, thinking about what we can't do or how we'll never get ahead, those thoughts are toxic thoughts. toxic thoughts left alone become like toxic waste that sinks into your heart. it will eventually contaminate your whole life. it affects your self-image. it affects your attitude, your level of confidence, and ultimately, your success. that's why the scripture says to guard your heart because the condition of your heart and mind determine the condition of your whole life.
    [font=papyrus, cursive]make the decision today to detox any negative, self-defeating thoughts by meditating on god's promises instead. make the decision to detox bitterness, detox low self-esteem, detox negative words that may have been spoken over you, detox condemnation. make the decision to dwell on what god says about you. god says, "you are forgiven." god says, "your best days are in front of you." god says, "i'll restore the years that the enemy has stolen." as you detox your mind and fill your thoughts with his promises, you'll see his hand of blessing on your life. you'll rise up higher, and you'll live the abundant life he has for you!
    [font=papyrus, cursive]a prayer for today
    [font=papyrus, cursive]father in heaven, i invite you to purify my heart and mind by your spirit today. wash me with the word as i meditate on your wonderful promises. help me keep my mind focused on you. in jesus' holy name. amen.
