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: Symptoms,causes,treatment & Prevention

Diabetic Ketoacidosis(DKA): Ketoacidosis is linked to hyperglycemia, it is a dangerous condition associated with high blood glucose levels in diabetes. Without enough insulin, the body’s cells cannot utilize glucose for energy. But while the body can’t use glucose for fuel – the body breaks down fat for energy alternatively. While fat is broken down, the body builds up chemicals named ketones, that appear in the blood and urine. High levels of ketones make the blood to become more acidic. This is recognized as ketoacidosis ( diabetic ketoacidosis/ DKA). Most circumstances, DKA mainly attacks people with type 1 diabetes, but can sometimes occur in people with type 2 diabetes.

    I think I need to start using one, especially since I have some dietary challenges
    Does anyone have one that is recommended. Also where can I get one and how much do they cost approximately.
    I don't know anything about them.

    I'm not an expert on this since I just purchased mine this last week . I think the only 2 available are from Precision and NovaMax. Precision tends to be a little more accurate but the strips are REALLY expensive. NovaMax doesn't seem to be quite as accurate (at least with glucose readings) but the strips are a little more reasonable. I usually look up this kind of thing on amazon. Some people have reported good prices from american diabetes wholesale so you might want to look there also.
    Just remember that the meter has to check blood ketones - not just glucose. Any strips you are looking at must check blood ketones - not the urine ketones (those strips are very inexpensive).
    Others will chime in with more info I'm sure

    I'm no expert either, but I got my Precision reader for free. We can't post links here, but I think if you Google "free Precision Xtra meter" the top search result should be the right one. It's totally legit - straight from the manufacturer. Also, the fact that the form asked for insurance info freaked me out, but apparently that's nothing. They didn't even have my insurance company in their selection list, so I chose a random one. I got my meter delivered via FedEx within a week!
    When it comes to the strips, it's not so easy or cheap. I found a Canadian pharmacy online where I've been ordering my strips. The price there is $19.99 for a box of 10, plus approximately $7 shipping to the U.S. It seems like the shipping takes forever, but I'm not sure if that's a fault of the specific pharmacy or the fact that it's coming from Canada and I'm simply impatient. I just tried a Google search for "Precision Xtra ketone strips" and the pharmacy I've been using was the third search result. You may have better luck finding a cheaper/faster pharmacy if you keep looking. I've just been sticking with the familiar!
    The only problem I've had with that pharmacy was that my second order of strips was very delayed because for some reason they had to talk to me on the phone to verbally confirm my order. And they didn't let me know this until several days after I placed my order. On the phone I asked them, why didn't I have to do this with my first order? They said that it was standard practice on all orders, and it was unusual that I didn't have to the first time. Well, when I got ready to place my third order, I crossed my fingers and tried it online again without calling...turns out no phone call was necessary that time either.
    Whichever meter you choose - good luck!!!

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Ketoacidosis is a metabolic state associated with high concentrations of ketone bodies, formed by the breakdown of fatty acids and the deamination of amino acids. The two common ketones produced in humans are acetoacetic acid and ß-hydroxybutyrate. Ketoacidosis is a pathological metabolic state marked by extreme and uncontrolled ketosis. In ketoacidosis, the body fails to adequately regulate ketone production causing such a severe accumulation of keto acids that the pH of the blood is substantially decreased. In extreme cases ketoacidosis can be fatal. Ketoacidosis is most common in untreated type 1 diabetes mellitus, when the liver breaks down fat and proteins in response to a perceived need for respiratory substrate. Prolonged alcoholism may lead to alcoholic ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis can be smelled on a person's breath. This is due to acetone, a direct by-product of the sp

Gastrointestinal Manifestations Of Diabetic Ketoacidosis.

The evaluation of gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with diabetic acidosis frequently challenges the physician's clinical acumen. Faced with a seriously ill patient, he must judge whether the abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting are a consequence of the metabolic decompensation, and hence likely to resolve with correction of the ketoacidosis, or if these symptoms signal a serious underlying intra-abdominal process (e.g., cholecystitis, appendicitis, etc.) which may have precipitated the development of ketoacidosis. The pathogenesis of the reversible gastrointestinal symptoms which frequently accompany diabetic acidosis has not been rigorously defined and may be multifactorial, involving metabolic, humoral, and neural processes. Careful attention to the medical history and abdominal examination greatly facilitates distinguishing patients with intra-abdominal pathology from those with reversible symptoms secondary to ketoacidosis. Similarly, the judicious use of laboratory tests (electrocardiography, blood counts, urinalysis, serum enzyme profile, and abdominal roentgenograms) materially aids in differential diagnosis. Finally, clinical suspicion of an acute abdominal process shou Continue reading >>

    FULL BLOWN damn this new keyboard! I started low carbing again last monday. I was doing low cal for a whole month before, starving most of the time. I knew I was in ketosis about 3 days in and have maintained a steady loss this entire week, dropping almost 10 lbs this week. Which was more than I had dropped in the whoole 5 weeks of low cal. The issue now is maintaining my level of calories and I'm not taking about keeping them low. I am literaly so nauseous that eatting is chore. I still love cooking but by the time the meal is done for my family I sware like I've filled up on just the smell of the food. I eat a few bites, off one of the kiddie sized plates and I'm done. I couldn't eat another bite and beable to swollow it. I'm worried about killing my metabolism eatting so few calories. Yesterday I managed 800 roughly. Today I am off to a better start. I ate:
    Breakfast: creamcheese muffin (creamcheese, eggs, vanilla syrup, cinnamon)
    lunch: cauliflower, bacon, butter, cheese
    and for dinner I have pulled beef and green chillis with cheese planned
    If I manage to get all my water drank I'm guess ill probably have to force down maybe 5-6 bites of dinner.
    So has anyone else dealt with this before? and did you just roll with it or force feed yourself? Any tips for minimizing it?

    It is typical to lose your appetite and if you recall, Atkins plainly states that you should eat to your appetite - no more, no less. It will return - always does. A really good thing to consume is broth - chicken or beef and regular sodium - you need to replenish. Good luck and KUTGW!!

    I also suffer horribly from induction flu. I get not only nauseous but very light-headed. Three things work for me - stay well hydrated, exercise (walking daily), and eating more veggies. I tend to stick with meats and cheese when I first start but I find that I feel better if I include more salad.

Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Diabetic ketoacidosis is an acute complication of diabetes that occurs mostly in type 1 diabetes mellitus. Symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and a characteristic fruity odor on the breath. Diabetic ketoacidosis is diagnosed by blood tests that show high levels of glucose, ketones, and acid. Treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis involves intravenous fluid replacement and insulin. Without treatment, diabetic ketoacidosis can progress to coma and death. There are two types of diabetes mellitus, type 1 and type 2. In both types, the amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood is elevated. Glucose is one of the body's main fuels. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas. helps glucose move from the blood into the cells. Once glucose is inside the cells, it is either converted to energy or stored as fat or glycogen until it is needed. When there is not enough insulin, most cells cannot use the glucose that is in the blood. Because cells still need energy to survive, they switch to a back-up mechanism to obtain energy. Fat cells begin breaking down, producing compounds called ketones. Ketones provide some energy to cells but also make the blood too aci Continue reading >>

    Strategically drinking alcohol to stay in ketosis?

    Hello everyone,
    I understand after drinking alcohol, it is metabolized as acetate. Since acetate cannot be stored, and is considered by the body to be a poison, it is metabolized with the highest priority. This means that all other macro nutrients in the blood will be stored, since the alcohol is being utilized for energy.
    With this logic in mind, if I eat carbohydrates while intoxicated, the body will not begin the process of using carbohydrates for energy because of the alcohol's acetate is currently being processed. This means the carbohydrates will directly be stored without initiating the glucose pathways.
    Does this mean I can stay in keto even after consuming carbs and sobering up since the glucose pathways never began? I do understand alcohol does have an excess amount of calories, and the calories of the carbs still count. But the question is will you stay in ketosis afterwards?
    I feel like it doesn't work this way, but at the same time, the logic seems to somehow work.
    Assuming the first few statements regarding metabolic processes are correct, does this mean you can use alcohol to stay in keto because you never utilize the glucose pathways?
    (I apologize for the lack of sources, I cannot find them at the moment)
    Thanks in advance

    I see where you are coming from and I have been drunk and stayed in Ketosis but...
    The body would switch from using Ketones as fuel to the fuel from the alcohol - ethanol?? So if this was the case then when that runs out (you sober up) it will look for the nearest available fuel (the carbs you ate that haven’t yet been processed) so you would need to get into ketosis again.
    If you drink beer then your eating carbs with the alcohol.
    Sorry this is not a proper answer.
    When I am on Keto I drink slim line Tonic (diet) with Gin and have stayed in but didnt eat carbs.
    I love drinking but to be honest, drinking on keto sucks.
