The Perfect Storm Of High Blood Sugar And Ketones

The Perfect Storm of High Blood Sugar and Ketones I was out of town for a couple of days this week for work, and Im pretty sure that I was this close to ending up in DKA (diabetes ketoacidosis) again. I think it was one of those perfect storm type of events. Id gone out to a concert Tuesday night and was out late, hadnt had any water to drink all day, so I know I was dehydrated. The Saturday and Sunday before that, I had been running fever out of nowhere and was asleep most of the weekend. So clearly my body was still recovering from whatever that was. Then mother nature decided to show up Monday night, which always causes high blood glucose (BG). Then I had a flight out first thing Tuesday morning, and flying always makes my BGs high so I use a temp basal. When I left my house early Tuesday morning, I was ok. My BG was 140. I set my usual temp basal to 125% nothing out of the norm. By the time I landed 46 minutes later, I was almost 300. Wasnt overly concerned. I felt incredibly tired, but I chalked that up to only getting 3 hours sleep and having to make a 7 am flight. First stop at the airport was Starbucks for a coffee (which I never even got to finish) and breakfast sandwich. Continue reading >>

    So, I'm aware that people don't actually need to drink 8 glasses of water per day.
    However, for those on keto, is higher water intake truly necessary? If so, would you please share any relevant scientific sources? Thank you.

    I don't know how you can avoid it. Keto makes me incredithirsty. I don't even log how much water I'm drinking because I know it's enough to drown a fish.

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 b

How To Treat Ketoacidosis

Fri, 11/19/2010 - 14:57 -- Richard Morris Immediately drink a large amount of non-caloric or low caloric fluid. Continue to drink 8 to 12 oz. every 30 minutes. Diluted Gatorade, water with Nu-Salt and similar fluids are good because they help restore potassium lost because of high blood sugars. Take larger-than-normal correction boluses every 3 hours until the blood sugar is below 200 mg/dl (11 mmol) and ketones are negative. It will take much more rapid insulin than normal to bring blood sugars down when ketones are present in the urine or blood. Often, one and a half to two times the normal insulin dose for a high blood sugar will be necessary. Higher insulin doses than these will be needed if there is an infection or other major stress. If nausea becomes severe or last 4 hours or more, call your physician. If vomiting starts or you can no longer drink fluids, have a friend or family member call your physician immediately, then go directly to an emergency room for treatment. Never omit your insulin, even if you cannot eat. A reduced insulin dose might be needed, but only if your blood sugar is currently low. When high blood sugars or ketoacidosis happen, it is critical that you Continue reading >>

    I've been ketoing now almost 5 weeks but have been struggling to get my fasting blood glucose down. This morning my blood ketones registered at .8 but my blood glucose was 122. I'm eating about 90-100g protein a day but I weigh 217. Is it still just too much protein? Carb intake is negligible. Fat intake is probably 250g a day. Any thoughts? Thanks.

  2. Mare

    For your weight, that does not seem like a lot of protein to me. I weigh 145, and I've calculated my minimum protein at 60g and can go as high as 100g.
    As to blood glucose, there's a phenomenon with ketosis where fasting BG is elevated, but it is benign. Peter at Hyperlipid had a post on his blog some time ago that provided the science behind this, but I could not follow it. This may be what you're experiencing.

    My endo told me that this is true, and he goes by my A1C rather than my fasting because of this.

  3. carolT

    Protein could be lower if you are female (sorry, can't tell) and/or not exercising, but the ketone level indicates you are accessing some fat overnight.

    Have you taken glucose readings at night or before your main meal? Are they lower? You may be experiencing "dawn phenomenon" where glucose is higher in the morning because 1.) the same hormones that wake you up also give you some extra glucose to start the day or 2.) your glucose dropped overnight and your body reacts by making more of it. Also, if you happen to get up in the middle of the night, you could see what your glucose is doing before your normal waking time.

Ketone Drink Could Help Diabetics By Lowering Blood Sugar

Follow all of ScienceDaily's latest research news and top science headlines ! Ketone drink could help diabetics by lowering blood sugar For the first time it has been shown that drinking a ketone supplement can lower blood sugar levels, presenting a potential future method to control spikes in blood sugar experienced by diabetics. For the first time it has been shown that drinking a ketone supplement can lower blood sugar levels, presenting a potential future method to control spikes in blood sugar experienced by diabetics. Type 2 diabetes and obesity have reached epidemic proportions in the past few decades. These conditions are associated with high blood sugar, which can damage the vessels that supply blood to vital organs and can also increase the risk of heart disease and stroke. Although previous studies have shown that infusing ketones into the bloodstream can reduce blood sugar levels, this study, published in the Journal of Physiology, has shown that a ketone ester supplement can also lower blood sugar levels. Researchers at the University of British Columbia and University of Oxford have demonstrated that a single drink of ketone ester enables better control of blood suga Continue reading >>

    So I know the title sounds gnarly but I was mildly stressing that I wasnt in ketosis or on my way to it.
    But I was saying bye to my mum amd she says "I can tell you're doing low carb, i can smell the ketone breath."
    I was very excited cause I only had mild weird taste in me mouth. Gives me the boost to know I'm doing this right.

  2. hide

    Yep. I find it's a taste in my mouth more than a smell for me, although who knows what others around me think.
