Glucose Management In Hospitalized Patients

Glucose management in hospitalized patients poses challenges to physicians, including identifying blood glucose targets, judicious use of oral diabetes mellitus medications, and implementing appropriate insulin regimens. Uncontrolled blood glucose levels can lead to deleterious effects on wound healing, increased risk of infection, and delays in surgical procedures or discharge from the hospital. Previously recommended strict blood glucose targets for hospitalized patients result in more cases of hypoglycemia without improvement in patient outcomes. The current target is 140 to 180 mg per dL. Use of oral diabetes medications, particularly metformin, in hospitalized patients is controversial. Multiple guidelines recommend stopping these medications at admission because of inpatient factors that can increase the risk of renal or hepatic failure. However, oral diabetes medications have important nonglycemic benefits and reduce the risk of widely fluctuating blood glucose levels. There is no proven risk of lactic acidosis from metformin in patients with normal kidney function, and it can be used safely in many hospitalized patients with diabetes. Insulin dosing depends on the patient's Continue reading >>

    Ketosis & BG

    Has anyone ever made a correlation between their blood sugar numbers and Ketosis? I imagine it would be different for everyone. seems to me that if the BG went down to x then you would switch into ketosis for fuel needs. Too high a BG and you wouldn't be in ketosis. Or am I off track here and it is purely the carb count that matters? I have read how atkins suggested increasing carbs each week to find the right level of carbs to maintain weight on his diet.
    Any ideas or thoughts?

    You can be in ketosis and have high blood sugar levels but low insulin levels. This what happens to T1s at onset, but it gets worse and there can be ketoacidosis. T2s, if they are insulin resistant and/or insulin deficient, can also be in ketosis and have above normal blood glucose levels.
    Normal people go in and out of ketosis every day. But for someone who has normal insulin production and insulin sensitivity, sustained ketosis would only occur if carb consumption dropped below what is needed to satisfy the normal daily glucose requirement. Some say this is 130 grams of carb a day. Low carbers will tell you it is a lot lower, based on their observations of ketone test results and eating patterns.
    That is my take on it anyway. And in answer to your question, no, I don't think there is a clear correlation there.

What Is Renal Failure: In this video, We will share information about what is renal failure - how to identify renal failure - symptoms of renal failure. Subscribe to our channel for more videos. Watch: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivQE7...) How to Identify Renal Failure Renal failure, also known as kidney failure, is a condition that can take two different forms: acute, when it presents itself very suddenly, and chronic, when it develops slowly over at least three months. Acute kidney failure has the potential to lead to chronic renal failure. During both types of renal failure your kidneys arent able to perform the necessary functions your body needs to stay healthy. Despite this similarity between types, the causes, symptoms, and treatments for the two kinds of renal failure vary significantly. Learning about the symptoms and causes of this disease and being able to differentiate between the two forms can be beneficial if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with renal failure.

Changes In Treatment Of Hyperglycemia In A Hypertensive Type 2 Diabetes Population As Renal Function Declines

Despite continued efforts to control hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and an ever-expanding arsenal of new drugs [1], we may fall short of adequate control in a significant portion of patients with diabetes due to failure to recognize comorbidities [2]. As kidney disease progresses, clearance of oral agents such as glyburide, metformin or sitagliptan may be so diminished as to require discontinuation. The decrease in renal function due to acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease (CKD) exacerbates fluid/volume overload, congestive heart failure, high blood pressure [3] as well as other comorbidities. Since there is little data focusing on the impact of renal dysfunction on these therapeutic choices, we examined the effect of renal (dys)function on the choice of antidiabetic medications. To understand the medication decisions in patients with both type 2 diabetes and hypertension, we evaluated the records of all patients seen at least twice during a sample 5-year period at Joslin Diabetes Center. This study was approved by the Committee on Human Studies of the Joslin Diabetes Center as a quality assurance study to determine adherence to quality guidelines. All patient records were anonym Continue reading >>

    I love PB and will lose steadily in ketosis... but I suffer from terrible insomnia. It takes a long time to fall asleep, I don't sleep soundly and wake up multiple times a night getting only around 4 hours of sleep. This will go on for weeks... until I eat more carbohydrate, kick myself out of ketosis and weight loss stalls.
    How do I continue to lose weight, get the great benefits of PB and sleep? It only takes about 80g - 100g of carbs a day for me to stop losing. Plus, it is hard to get that much from veggies. Adding in more than 1/2 cup of berries a day or adding starch brings the binge monster out. For me the carbs are more of an all or nothing proposition. I feel great at 40-50 net a day from one small fruit serving and the rest from veggies.
    Background: 46, female, BMI just fell below 30 last week (yay!). I have lost 70+ pounds over the last 14 months or so with another 40-50 to go. I am extremely carb sensitive both relative to weight and food reward/binge cycle eating.
    Is anyone else experiencing the same thing? Has anyone figured out the answer? After about 10 days of poor sleep, I get pretty cranky and have trouble focusing at work.
    Thanks much!

    magnesium, vitamin d, sodium. check those

  3. namelesswonder

    Have you tried non-fruit options to increase carbs, like the occasional serving of white rice or some starches like sweet potato? Plenty of winter squash options as well, as those are fairly high-carb. Maybe this will not trigger a binge as much, since there's less sugar than fruit.

ADA TV interviews Symposium Chair, William T. Cefalu, MD, and an attendee about the most important takeaways from this years ADA Diabetes Care symposium at the 75th ADA Scientific Sessions.

Ada Updates Standards Of Medical Care For Patients With Diabetes Mellitus

Key Points for Practice • All adults should be tested for diabetes beginning at 45 years of age. • Overweight or obese patients with one or more risk factors for diabetes should be screened at any age. • Persons who use continuous glucose monitoring and insulin pumps should have continued access after 65 years of age. • Aspirin therapy should be considered for women with diabetes who are 50 years and older. • The addition of ezetimibe to statin therapy should be considered for eligible patients who can tolerate only a moderate-dose statin Ongoing patient self-management education and support are critical to preventing acute complications of diabetes mellitus and reducing the risk of long-term complications. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recently updated its standards of care to provide the components of diabetes care, general treatment goals, and tools to evaluate the quality of care. Key changes in the 2016 update include new screening recommendations, clarification of diagnostic testing, and recommendations on the use of new technology for diabetes prevention, the use of continuous glucose monitoring devices, cardiovascular risk management, and screening for h Continue reading >>

    HEY ALL!!
    I AM SOOOOO CONFUSED! I know some people don't think that the strips are accurate (their are many things that can effect the out come, how much water are you drinking, yadda, yadda, yadda) I had to try them !. I bought some last night and according to the color I am in Moderate ketosis. This morning I used one and it is the same. The strips go from Zero, Trace, Low, Moderate, to Large. So does the moderate mean that I AM buring fat as fuel or that I am ALMOST buring fat for fuel? The box and directions don't give and explanation for some odd reason.
    HEEEEELP!! Thanks!

  2. Cherimee

    On the side of the bottle, you should see a like a chart to compare it to.... if you are in moderate ketosis then that's good! The more purple the stick, the more fat you are burning for fuel, which is what you want to do on Atkins. You'll notice that with Atkins, the keto strips are like the scale, you wanna see PURPLE when you test becasue the more ketones in your urine, of course the more fat you burn! Sounds like you are doing good...good luck
    P.S. I'm told that with Atkins even a 'trace' of ketones is good... trying going to www dot lowcarbnexus dot com, that site gives you good info... here's what they say about ketosis:
    Ketosis? - As long as we are on the topic, what about ketosis? Ketosis is the state that your body enters into when you are eating mainly protein and fats, and drastically curtailing your consumption of carbohydrates. As Dr. Atkins says, "There is no lipolysis without ketosis, no ketosis without lipolysis." Lipolysis is, essentially, "fat burning." In other words, this is just what we want! We want to force our bodies to consume stored fat for fuel rather than burn primarily our food. This occurs because protein and fat do not "give up" their stored energy as easily as do carbohydrates. As long as you are eating mainly carbs, especially refined sugars, you will find that your body will burn that as opposed to your fat stores. Testing with LTS, as we have mentioned above, scientifically tests for the process of your body burning it's own fat as fuel. When the sticks turn purple (or a shade thereof), you are burning fat! It is a good feeling! It is especially comforting to see that purple when your scales don't agree that you are losing! Keep in mind that fat loss doesn't always equal weight loss on the scales... immediately. Body weight can be related to water retention, and many other temporary conditions. However, FAT loss is what we want, and you will see measurements change even if your scale does not show it immediately! That WILL follow, of course... just stick with it!
    Some have asked, "Do I have to be in ketosis?" Well, it is perfectly safe to be in what Dr. Atkins calls "Benign Dietary Ketosis" for extended periods. In fact, if you are burning fat, you will be in some amount of ketosis...sometimes just not a measurable amount (with LTS). If you are out of ketosis for extended periods, you won't be burning fat, and therefore, you won't be losing weight! And that's what we are doing the diet to do! Don't confuse ketosis, a safe metabolic state that you enter when you loss weight, with ketoacidosis, a dangerous state that diabetics, in particular, can enter if they get out of proper balance in their insulin / glycogen balance. Many health care professionals and nutritionists are apparently confused by the distinction between these two different states... ketone test strips are used to test both states, but they are quite different!


    Cherimee, BIG THANKS!!!! The info you gave me is sooooo relieving!!! I was so worried! I know that must have takin a while for you to find and type, thank you so much for helping me!
