What is DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS? What does DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS mean? DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS meaning - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS definition - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... 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 blood sugar, low blood pH, and ketoacids in either the blood or urine. The primary treatment of DKA is with intravenous fluids and insulin. Depending on the severity, insulin may be given intravenously or by injection under the skin. Usually potassium is also needed to prevent the development of low blood potassium. Throughout treatment blood sugar and potassium levels should be regularly checked. Antibiotics may be required in those with an underlying infection. In those with severely low blood pH, sodium bicarbonate may be given; however, its use is of unclear benefit and typically not recommended. Rates of DKA vary around the world. About 4% of people with type 1 diabetes in United Kingdom develop DKA a year, while in Malaysia the condition affects about 25% a year. DKA was first described in 1886 and, until the introduction of insulin therapy in the 1920s, it was almost universally fatal. The risk of death with adequate and timely treatment is currently around 1–4%. Up to 1% of children with DKA develop a complication known as cerebral edema. The symptoms of an episode of diabetic ketoacidosis usually evolve over a period of about 24 hours. Predominant symptoms are nausea and vomiting, pronounced thirst, excessive urine production and abdominal pain that may be severe. Those who measure their glucose levels themselves may notice hyperglycemia (high blood sugar levels). In severe DKA, breathing becomes labored and of a deep, gasping character (a state referred to as "Kussmaul respiration"). The abdomen may be tender to the point that an acute abdomen may be suspected, such as acute pancreatitis, appendicitis or gastrointestinal perforation. Coffee ground vomiting (vomiting of altered blood) occurs in a minority of people; this tends to originate from erosion of the esophagus. In severe DKA, there may be confusion, lethargy, stupor or even coma (a marked decrease in the level of consciousness). On physical examination there is usually clinical evidence of dehydration, such as a dry mouth and decreased skin turgor. If the dehydration is profound enough to cause a decrease in the circulating blood volume, tachycardia (a fast heart rate) and low blood pressure may be observed. Often, a "ketotic" odor is present, which is often described as "fruity", often compared to the smell of pear drops whose scent is a ketone. If Kussmaul respiration is present, this is reflected in an increased respiratory rate.....

    Ketosis Versus Ketoacidosis

    Since much discussion has come up lately concerning Dr. Fung, Intermittent Fasting, and ketosis…I thought it would be timely to share this article I found explaining the difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis.
    New diabetics and even a few old hands seem to sometimes confuse these two things…even some doctors do!!
    Ketosis is safe, ketoacidosis can be a life-threatening condition. I might add that DKA, diabetic ketoacidosis happens much more frequently in Type 1 rather than Type 2 diabetics. Usually, you also need to have high BG readings to develop ketoacidosis, as I understand it.
    Anyway, my clinical knowledge is limited, and I certainly am not qualified to give medical advice, so I will just present the article as is.

Diabetes can KILL YOU! Dangers of Diabetes with Ketoacidosis So don't do drugs. That is the message for this video. And I think these days you are more likely to die of problems with drug related issues than even road traffic accidents. So this is a major, major issue. We recently had a young lady. She came to the hospital with fevers, chills shaking all over. She was found to have swelling, warmth and severe pain of her arm where she normally injects her heroin. Now, that is a bad recreational drug to start off with but what happens in people who inject themselves is that they develop infections in that area. What could happen is that the infection can spread in the blood stream and lead to infecting your heart. But that can be especially dangerous. So she came to the hospital. She had spiking fevers. She had chills. She had not gone into withdrawals from her heroin yet but she apparently left against medical advice and did not want to be treated. And apparently of course, she wanted to inject herself with more heroin. Two days later, she comes back to the hospital with raging fevers and worsening pain of her arm. Of course she was admitted again. She was started on antibiotics. Found out that she had a really bad bacteria and a bug that could be very, very dangerous. Fortunately, she did not develop any infection of the heart. So the course of her antibiotics were not that long. Having said that, still she put herself in a very dangerous position. She agreed thankfully, to undergo rehab. And because she agreed to do rehab which a lot of people don't and they just want to go out and keep on doing these types of drugs. And the good thing about that was we could put in a line where she will be monitored through which she could receive longer antibiotics. I guess it is very risky in these patients who are drug abusers because they may use that line to inject drugs into them. And that could put the medical practitioner in jeopardy also. But for her, she was gonna be monitored. We put in a line for her through which we were giving her medications by IV which she definitely needed. And of course she would be monitored closely in a closed unit where she will be detoxed from her heroin addiction. Now this was a happy ending. Hopefully she maintains this. Hopefully she does not go back into abusing drugs. A lot of times what happens it's not the person, it's the environment that the person is living in. If they don't have any family support. If all their friends are into drugs and they're not involved in other activities they don't go to school or they don't have a job. All they can do is waste their time on drugs. Which is very, very unfortunate. And as I said, this problem is as bad as getting into a car accident. This is surely avoidable by not getting into these medicines in the first place. So the rule again is do not do drugs. If you do, you have to be ready for the consequences. So let's finish this video off and again, it's your doctors goal to prevent you from taking medication. But if you have to, you must take them properly. My friends, stay healthy. And stay safe.
