Hypomagnesemia - Wikipedia

This article is about the blood condition. For the general condition, see Magnesium deficiency (medicine) . For the condition in plants, see Magnesium deficiency (plants) . Hypomagnesemia, also spelled hypomagnesaemia, is an electrolyte disturbance in which there is a low level of magnesium in the blood. [1] Normal magnesium levels are between 1.462.68mg/dL (0.6-1.1 mmol/L) with levels less than 1.46mg/dL (0.6mmol/L) defining hypomagnesemia. [2] Symptoms include tremor, nystagmus , seizures , and cardiac arrest including torsade de pointes . [2] Causes include alcoholism , starvation , diarrhea , increased urinary loss, and poor absorption from the intestines . [2] Hypomagnesemia is not necessarily magnesium deficiency . Specific electrocardiogram (ECG) changes may be seen. [2] For those with severe disease intravenous magnesium sulfate may be used. [2] The prefix hypo- means under (contrast with hyper-, meaning over). The root 'magnes' refers to magnesium. The suffix of the word, -emia, means 'in the blood'. Deficiency of magnesium can cause tiredness, generalized weakness, muscle cramps, abnormal heart rhythms , increased irritability of the nervous system with tremors , paresth Continue reading >>

    So I know we get a lot of success stories of people doing crazy things like losing 40 pounds in 3 months but I was wondering what the average persons weekly weight loss is ? I've been lifting all of my adult life just about and started the diet around 264, the lowest I've seen the scale is 252. So I've lost 12 pounds since easter roughly. That's a lil more than 9 weeks on the diet so I'm at about a solid pound per week weight loss. Ideally 220 is the goal with some abs, and at this rate I'll need 32 weeks to get there. So of I keep doing what I'm doing I'll be there in 7 and half months.

  2. Slothkins

    1/ week. As others have said, the closer you are to your goal, the slower it gets. The people dropping crazy numbers each week are the ones with 100 lbs to lose.

  3. julietscause

    After the initial large drop .5 - 1 Lbs a week
    The only thing I would suggest is do not take any other's numbers to heart, everyone's body/diet/goals are different
    Too many times we have seen people try to compare what others have posted on there and getting bent out of shape over it and not looking at the bigger picture.

In this video I have explained orotic aciduria refers to an excessive excretion of orotic acid in urine. It causes a characteristic form of anemia and may be associated with mental and physical retardation. Orotic acid is an intermediate product in pyrimidine synthesis pathway, a subsequent product of which plays a role in conversion between dihydrofolate and tetrahydrofolate. Orotic aciduria is associated with megaloblastic anemia due to decreased pyrimidine synthesis, which leads to decreased nucleotide-lipid cofactors needed for erythrocyte membrane synthesis in the bone marrow. In addition to the characteristic excessive orotic acid in the urine, patients typically have megaloblastic anemia (UMP synthase deficiency) which cannot be cured by administration of vitamin B12 or folic acid. It also can cause inhibition of RNA and DNA synthesis and failure to thrive. Its hereditary form, an autosomal recessive disorder, can be caused by a deficiency in the enzyme UMPS, a bifunctional protein that includes the enzyme activities of orotate phosphoribosyltransferase and orotidine 5'-phosphate decarboxylase. It can also arise secondary to blockage of the urea cycle, particularly in ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency (or OTC deficiency). You can distinguish this increase in orotic acid secondary to OTC deficiency from hereditary orotic aciduria (seen above) by looking at blood ammonia levels and the BUN (blood urea nitrogen). In OTC deficiency, because the urea cycle backs up, you will see hyperammonemia and a decreased BUN. Administration of uridine, which is converted to UMP, will bypass the metabolic block and provide the body with a source of pyrimidine. Uridine triacetate is a drug approved by FDA to be used in the treatment of hereditary orotic aciduria. Source for the above text is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orotic_...

Omim Entry - % 236795 - 3-hydroxyisobutyric Aciduria

Ko et al. (1991) described a 6-year-old Caucasian boy with a clinical picture typical of organic acidemia with repeated episodes of ketoacidosis. He showed marked failure to thrive and chronic lactic acidemia. Urinary excretion of 3-hydroxyisobutyric acid ranged from 170 to 390 mmol/mol of creatinine. Administration of valine increased the excretion strikingly and reproduced the clinical picture of ketoacidosis. Concentrations of free carnitine were low and esterified carnitine was elevated. Treatment with carnitine and a diet restricted in protein appeared to be beneficial. This is a disorder of valine metabolism; see also methacrylic aciduria ( 250620 ). Ko et al. (1991) speculated that the fundamental defect was in 3-hydroxyisobutyrate dehydrogenase, which catalyzes the conversion of 3-hydroxyisobutyrate to methylmalonic semialdehyde, or in the conversion of the semialdehyde to propionyl CoA. They favored the latter possibility. Chitayat et al. (1992) reported the association of 3-hydroxyisobutyric aciduria with brain dysgenesis. They described monozygotic male twins, born to nonconsanguineous parents, who had dysmorphic facial features, microcephaly, migrational brain disorder Continue reading >>

    Just wondering if any of you experience EXTREME thirst when you're in heavy ketosis.
    Usually when I'd test w/ketostix I'd be on the lighter end of things... but today I'm at the second-darkest which is awesome. Probably due to IFing till dinner yesterday and then again till dinner today.
    But today I've been incredibly thirsty all day long. It's not a salt thing because I've actually been using less salt than usual... I'm wondering if it's due to being in ketosis.
    If so, does anyone know WHY? Is more water necessary to flush out excess ketones or something? Or maybe it's because I'm not getting much water from my food (like I would if I were eating more veggies) since I've mostly eaten meat?
    In any case, it's pretty exciting for me. One good thing about my husband being out of town is that I get more flexibility with my eating. I'd been really craving some IFs for a while, but he likes to eat 3 meals a day and I generally join him even if I'm not hungry (I know, I know).
    Maybe I'll stay in ketosis for this whole 2 weeks and lose a bit more of this "last 10." That'd be good.

    If I got to eat your food, heck, I'd want to eat 3 times too. Loved your Primal party foods series.
    When I IF, surprisingly, I don't feel thirsty but sometimes sip hot water to keep boredom at bay and to stop me from thinking about food.

DKA diabetic ketoacidosis nursing management pathophysiology & treatment. DKA is a complication of diabetes mellitus and mainly affects type 1 diabetics. DKA management includes controlling hyperglycemia, ketosis, and acdidosis. Signs & Symptoms include polyuria, polydipsia, hyperglycemia greater than 300 mg/dL, Kussmaul breathing, acetone breath, and ketones in the urine. Typically DKA treatment includes: intravenous fluids, insulin therapy (IV regular insulin), and electrolyte replacement. This video details what the nurse needs to know for the NCLEX exam about diabetic ketoacidosis.

Type 1 Diabetics Should Be Aware Of Dka (diabeticketoacidosis)

Tags: Diabetes ( 22 ) , Health ( 146 ) , Ketoacidosis ( 2 ) , Type1 ( 2 ) Type 1 diabetics should be aware of DKA (diabeticketoacidosis) All those who have type 1 diabetes should know about a serious complication which can happen in type 1 diabetes, called DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis). In this condition blood glucose levels shoots up, out of proportion, along with various other physical signs and symptoms. If not treated in time it can lead to loss of life. Hence knowing about DKA is wise and can be protective. Generally DKA happens when type 1 diabetics body goes through an insult like infection, surgery, heart attack, stroke, pregnancy, cocaine abuse, forgetting regular insulin doses frequently etc. During illnesses like in case of infection, appetite goes down and therefore the affected individual decreases the dose of insulin he use to take regularly. Due to lack of proper insulin doses the fat in the body break down and make ketone bodies. The latter produces acidic environment in the body, hence its termed ketoacidosis (acidosis due to ketone bodies). It presents with wide range of symptoms, but some of the commons are- pain in abdomen, fast breathing, fruity smell from the m Continue reading >>

    Ok, so here's a question I have, that I can't find the answer to in the FAQ...
    Once you are fat-adapted, do you intentionally drop your dietary fat intake down and rely on body fat being utilized to make up the difference?
    Are successful Keto diets generally eating a monitored calorie deficit for their fats, or just eating fat to satiety?
    Probably both?
    I understand the first part of the Keto diet for losing fat - get into nutritional ketosis. I just don't understand the second part. I assume that it is possible to overeat fats and put on weight, so do most people still count calories?
    If so, is the major advantage over traditional dieting that it is easier to say no to food Or is it that it that you can maintain energy in a caloric deficit. Edit:Or is it muscle preservation while dieting?
    If this is answered in the FAQ's or elsewhere, thanks in advance for links.
    Cheers

    Not counting calories is often referred to as "lazy keto" around here, you can search that for experiences. It works best for morbidly obese men - the less you have to lose and the smaller you are, the less leeway you have.
    If so, is the major advantage over traditional dieting that it is easier to say no to food Or is it that it that you can maintain energy in a caloric deficit.
    The latter. Eating low-carb is satiating and it is easier to maintain a deficit without blood sugar ups and downs. This is the case whether or not you count calories. However, for people who don't have a lot to lose, are prone to binge eating, or have a history of food abuse, those satiety effects are often not strong enough to negate the need for counting calories.

  3. Scarykidscaringkids

    Yup, I'm 130 pound and not aiming to lose much more but as I used to have an ED I feel a strong need to count calories still. Not counting can result in bingeing and that scares me. I'm hoping one day to rely completely on just my hunger but I still can't trust it yet.
