Urine Tests For Diabetes: Glucose Levels And Ketones

What Are Urine Tests for Diabetes? Diabetes is a condition that is characterized by high blood sugar levels. This is due to the body’s inability to make any or enough insulin, use insulin effectively, or both. Insulin is a hormone that helps the cells of your body absorb blood sugar to make energy. Insulin is produced by the pancreas after you eat food. There are two major classifications of diabetes: Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. This type is usually diagnosed in childhood and develops quickly. Symptoms include quick weight loss, excessive thirst, excessive urination, and fatigue. Type 1 makes up just 5 percent of diabetes cases in the United States. Type 2 diabetes is when cells aren’t able to use insulin effectively anymore. This is called insulin resistance. If the cells can’t take in and store glucose, the glucose remains in the blood. Eventually the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin to keep blood sugar levels within normal ranges, and diabetes develops. This type of diabetes develops gradually and is associated with being overweight and having a sedentary lifestyle. Diabete Continue reading >>

    Sick child with normal blood sugar but ketones in urine?

    My 5yr old has type 1, and has the flu. Her blood sugar is pretty normal to sometimes low as she does not want to eat but is drinking fluids. I tested her urine for ketones and they are 2+. I was told to increase her bg and give insulin every hour. does this make any sense?

  2. foxl

    2+ seems high. Ketones can simply indicate that you are burning fat as fuel -- either your own or dietary.
    My non-D daughter, now 10, used to get horrible ketone breath because when ill, she would NOT EAT!
    But GIVE INSULIN every HOUR??? No.

  3. furball64801

    I would not think insulin every hour could be regulated and you would have the stacking affect, make sure she has plenty of fluid.

READ MORE HERE: https://goo.gl/RBTAiv Beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is the first ketone body produced in a fasting state. It is commonly produced by the body during periods without much food (glucose) in order to provide an alternative energy fuel source. Although it is not technically a ketone (owing to the bonding structure), for the purposes of this post it is. Diets that are low in carbohydrates and high in fatty acids can either prompt the body to produce ketone bodies, such as beta hydroxybutyrate, or allow people to consume them exogenously (outside the body) instead. These exogenous ketone supplements have grown in popularity along with the ketogenic diet and media attention from popular icons such as Tim Ferriss and Dave Asprey. Although supplementation of beta hydroxybutyrate has been described as jet fuel and undesirable, modern iterations of exogenous ketones are making it easier for anyone to utilize these ketone bodies for optimal brain performance. There are a host of benefits of beta hydroxybutyrate, but it is primarily known as a fuel source in the absence of glucose. Within 24 72 hours without food, the body no longer uses glucose as the main fuel support system, which is when ketones like beta hydroxybutyrate kick into production. Fasting as long as 382 days (with medical supervision) is possible purely because of ketone production. Evidence suggests that beta hydroxybutyrate can increase the level of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the hippocampus, which is the main memory center of the brain. This is some of the only published literature about the performance enhancing effects of beta hydroxybutyrate, though there are several self-experiments. Namely, Dr. Peter Attia (popularized by Tim Ferriss podcast and Attias blog) has concluded there are benefits of reduced oxygen consumption by the brain. These statements have been confirmed to some degree by Dr. Dom DAgostino when describing under-water oxygen utilization and ketones, but neither are well-researched. Most of the evidence regarding beta hydroxybutyrate utilizes this exogenous ketone as a way to recovery from memory damage or impairment or as a neuroprotective agent. In one 2004 study of memory-impaired adults, beta hydroxybutyrate successfully aided in improving memory recall. For Alzheimers patients, using beta hydroxybutyrate is particularly helpful as a neuroprotective agent. Many of the long-term and neuroprotective benefits of beta hydroxybutyrate are closely linked to reduced carbohydrate and glucose consumption as well. For those who are consuming both exogenous ketones and eating glucose, the benefits are known. The benefits of beta hydroxybutyrate are not only for people who are currently experiencing nutritional ketosis. Often it is possible for athletes to utilize ketone bodies as a fuel source to limit glycogen depletion.

What Are Ketones And Their Tests?

A ketone test can warn you of a serious diabetes complication called diabetic ketoacidosis, or DKA. An elevated level of this substance in your blood can mean you have very high blood sugar. Too many ketones can trigger DKA, which is a medical emergency. Regular tests you take at home can spot when your ketone levels run too high. Then you can take insulin to lower your blood sugar level or get other treatments to prevent complications. What Exactly Are Ketones? Everyone has them, whether you have diabetes or not. Ketones are chemicals made in your liver. You produce them when you don't have enough of the hormone insulin in your body to turn sugar (or “glucose”) into energy. You need another source, so your body uses fat instead. Your liver turns this fat into ketones, a type of acid, and sends them into your bloodstream. Your muscles and other tissues can then use them for fuel. For a person without diabetes, this process doesn’t become an issue. But when you have diabetes, things can run out of control and you build up too many ketones in your blood. If the level goes too high, it can become life-threatening. Who Needs a Ketone Test? You might need one if you have type 1 di Continue reading >>

    Yes you were on the way to DKA, because you are not producing enough insulin to meet your body's needs whilst working out.
    You can go into DKA without your blood sugars being high if you have a mismatch in insulin requirement vs insulin output. The normal/low blood sugar DKA is quite rare but it can happen if the circumstances are right. You did the right thing to fight it, by having some carbs and protein and drinking a lot of water. If it repeats and you can't get the ketones down and you feel unwell you need to go to hospital. DKA can put you in a coma within hours so you need to take it seriously.
    I'd try to ease off doing hard workouts. You can still exercise but if this happens again you should rethink. You can also use this to back up your story at the doctors.

    Thank you derphamster, you always give great advice in all of my threads. :) Now I'm even more scared....I feel even more wary of the oGTT now, I shouldn't take it if I react this badly. If I am on my way to DKA with just some exercise and not much food - how will I react when downing 75 g of glucose? Probably straight to DKA... I really don't know what to do, other than sit around and wait until I actually develop whatever form of diabetes I have - so that some doctor will finally help me out and take me seriously. Even if I took the oGTT - what if it's one of those rare unpredictable days where my body still handles it and at the 2nd hour it is < 200...I will be sent home as "glucose intolerant" and would still be none the wiser. This limbo state truly sucks, sorry had to vent.

  3. derphamster

    Don't worry, ogtt won't cause you to go into DKA. You'll still be making the same amount of insulin, which is obviously enough for normal activities (evidenced by your normal readings most of the time). DKA occurs not from high blood sugar, but from not having enough insulin for your needs. The reason you got ketones when you were exercising is that a workout drastically increases the body's need for insulin as there are hundreds of hungry muscles competing for fuel, which is delivered by insulin. When insulin can't keep up, the body must burn fat for fuel which generates ketones.
    I also forgot to mention that your lack of food (specifically, carbs) before your workout could also cause your body to produce more ketones due to not enough glucose. If you'll be doing something strenuous, consider having a 10-15g carb snack shortly beforehand.
    The high blood sugar normally associated with DKA is a result of too little insulin for the body's basic function, so even though a person is eating carbs, the sugar just stays in the blood and builds up to a high level. The high blood sugar is a symptom, not a cause.

Optimal Ketone And Blood Sugar Levels For Ketosis

A low carb helps reduce blood sugars and insulin levels and helps with the management of many of the diseases of modern civilisation (e.g. diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s). We become insulin resistant when our body fat can’t store any more energy. Excess energy is then stored in the liver, pancreas, heart, brain and other organs that are more insulin sensitive. We also see increased levels of energy in our blood in the form of glucose, fat and elevated ketone. Endogenous ketosis occurs when we eat less food than we need. Our insulin and blood sugar levels decrease and ketones rise to supply the energy we need. Exogenous ketosis occurs when we eat lots fat and/or take exogenous ketones. Blood ketones rise, but our insulin levels will also rise because we have an excess of energy coming from our diet. Most of the good things associated with ketosis occur due to endogenous ketosis. Most people following a ketogenic diet over the long term have ketone values lower than what some people consider to be “optimal ketosis”. If your goal is blood sugar control, longevity or weight loss then endogenous ketosis with lower blood sugars and lower ke Continue reading >>
