Septic shock is a sepsis infection disease. Causes and septic shock symptoms are serious conditions. There are its symptoms and causes. It motives even as chemical substances launched into the bloodstream to combat the infection start inflammatory reactions at some point of the human body. This irritation may additionally cause a cascade of adjustments which can injure multiple organ systems, reason them to fail.

Early treatment of septic shock is usually with big quantities of intravenous fluids. It raises development possibilities for survival. Septic shock causes: It reasons most people frequently in the youthful and the very vintage. It is able to moreover show up in humans with weakened immune systems. Any form of the microorganism may purpose septic shock. Fungi and viruses also can cause the condition. Pollution released via the bacteria or fungi can purpose tissue harm. This may result in awful organ characteristic and occasional blood strain. Many examiners suppose that blood c

Vascular Hyporesponsiveness To Vasopressors In Septic Shock: From Bench To Bedside

Vascular hyporesponsiveness to vasopressors in septic shock: from bench to bedside Purpose: To delineate some of the characteristics of septic vascular hypotension, to assess the most commonly cited and reported underlying mechanisms of vascular hyporesponsiveness to vasoconstrictors in sepsis, and to briefly outline current therapeutic strategies and possible future approaches. Methods: Source data were obtained from a PubMed search of the medical literature with the following MeSH terms: Muscle, smooth, vascular/ physiopathology; hypotension/etiology; shock/physiopathology; vasodilation/physiology; shock/therapy; vasoconstrictor agents. Results: Nitric oxide (NO) and peroxynitrite are crucial components implicated in vasoplegia and vascular hyporeactivity. Vascular ATP-sensitive and calcium-activated potassium channels are activated during shock and participate in hypotension. In addition, shock state is characterized by inappropriately low plasma glucocorticoid and vasopressin concentrations, a dysfunction and desensitization of alpha-receptors, and an inactivation of catecholamines by oxidation. Numerous other mechanisms have been individualized in animal models, the great maj Continue reading >>

    I personally don't have n=1 experience with it, but on paper it looks amazing for keto-ers and diabetics.
    From the "In The Raw" website:
    Is Monk Fruit In The Raw safe for people with diabetes?
    Yes. Monk Fruit In The Raw® can easily be incorporated into the diet of people with diabetes. Monk Fruit In The Raw® contains less than one gram of carbohydrates (by food exchange measure) and may be used in conjunction with food programs for people with diabetes as well as with guidelines for people with diabetes who use carbohydrate counting. People with diabetes are advised to check with their registered dietician or physician.
    How many calories and carbohydrates are in a packet of Monk Fruit In The Raw?
    In our packet product, one packet (.8g) of Monk Fruit In The Raw® has less than .8 gram (0% DV) of carbohydrates and less than 3 calories, which the FDA considers dietetically zero calories per serving.
    What is the Glycemic Index (GI) of Monk Fruit In The Raw?
    Glycemic index (GI) is a measure of how fast carbohydrate foods are metabolized into glucose and thus affect blood sugar levels. Most sugar substitutes contain a very small amount of carbohydrates and are not classified as foods. Assigning a GI value to a sugar substitute is not a proper use of the GI concept. The glycemic load is a more appropriate concept for sugar substitutes.
    **What is the Glycemic Load (GL) and how does it relate to a sugar substitute like Monf Fruit In The Raw?
    Glycemic load (GL) refers to the impact that a food's carbohydrate content has on the level of glucose in the body, taking into account the type and amount of carbohydrates consumed. Using Monk Fruit In The Raw® in place of sugar can help to reduce the GL of the foods you consume.

    From Diabetes Self-Management:

    "As I previously mentioned, monk fruit extract is comprised of substances called mogrosides. Mogrosides have antioxidant properties (which is a good thing). And along with being an antioxidant, mogrosides appear to have anticancer properties and may have the ability to prevent diabetes complications. In a study with mice, mogrosides lowered oxidative stress, improved blood glucose, and lowered lipid (blood fat) levels."
    Source: https://www.diabetesselfmanagement.com/blog/sugar-substitutes-monk-fruit-extract/
    From the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation website:

    Yes. Scientific research and a long history of safe use show that monk fruit sweeteners can be safely consumed. Governments in the U.S., Canada, China, Japan, and Singapore have concluded that monk fruit sweeteners are safe for the general population, including children, people with diabetes, and women who are pregnant or nursing. In the U.S., monk fruit sweeteners are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reviewed the published research, listened to expert opinions and, based on the evidence, has no objections to ingredient maker determinations that monk fruit sweeteners are safe for use in foods and beverages.
    Yes. Since monk fruit is a no-calorie sweetener, it will not affect blood sugar levels and may be a good option for people with diabetes for reducing their total carbohydrate and sugar intake. Remember, a food or beverage containing monk fruit sweeteners may still have calories and carbohydrates, so always check the food label. If you’re unsure how foods and beverages with monk fruit sweeteners fit into your diabetes care plan, consult a health professional such as an RDN, certified diabetes educator (CDE), and/or your health care provider.

    I've been doing keto again since Thursday. I feel like I'm in ketosis, but my ketostix are showing negative. They're left over from a couple years ago, but they've sat in a sealed container since then. Am I wrong or are the ketostix expired?

  2. MissesDreadful

    Keto sticks do expire. Edit: it can be a couple months after you open them to year+. Humidity wreaks havoc on them.

  3. 1_upped

    The pack I bought had an expiry date of about 2 years after I got them. Expiry dates tend to be underestimated by manufacturers to be on the safe side. If they were kept dry/sealed and not subjected to any very hot or cold temperatures they should still work. They aren't very expensive though, maybe buy another pack to be sure.

    KETOSIS is a chemical /metabolic state your body is (or isn't!) in. Either your carbs are low enough for your body to be in ketosis, OR NOT. As long as you are in ketosis, your body metabolizes food differently -- it is totally irrelevant whether you are consuming "X" or "Y" number of carbs. In other words, IF you are in ketosis, it doesn't matter how deeply you are in ketosis, or how deeply purple your Ketostix are. You simply ARE or ARE NOT in ketosis.
    Eat too many carbs and your body goes out of ketosis, and changes the way it metabolizes food.
    WHILE IN KETOSIS, you cannot get all the caloric energy out of the food you eat. Fat will only give you 1 (ONE!) calorie of energy, not 9! Protein will give you only 2 calories, not 4; but carbs will still give you the full 4 calories whether or not you are in ketosis.
    So, your Ketostix turn purple because you are in ketosis and producing ketones through your now-inefficient metabolic breakdown of fat. Deeper purple is caused by more ketones, which is caused by eating more fat -- it has absolutely NOTHING to do with changing your body's "level" of ketosis. Remember, you either ARE or ARE NOT in ketosis! THERE ARE NO LEVELS OF KETOSIS, ONLY CONCENTRATIONS OF KETONES, which is entirely dependent upon how much fat you eat.
    So if you are sure you are in ketosis (which you seem to be because your Ketostix are still consistently turning even the palest shade of purple -- which can only happen if you are producing ketones which can only happen if you are in ketosis), then you can only have a limited number of problems (and it isn't ketosis!):
    1. You are simply eating TOO much, too many calories to lose weight! (and it probably is protein).
    2. You are on a plateau, and simply must wait it out.
    3. You are having a "sensitivity" issue that is causing you to retain your weight (probably water). You could be sensitive to anything: milk products, gluten, artificial sweeteners (beware maltitol), medicines, ...
    Three weeks is not an unusually long time for your weight to be stable despite your "best efforts" at losing weight. Review your daily food records and see if there is anything different about the last three weeks. Maybe you can find a clue that way.
    Note: Are you eating maltitol? LOTs of people stall by eating maltitol. "They" say maltitol has "ZERO" effective carbs; but the USDA has research that indicates that maltitol is actually worth "half" its total grams, NOT none of its grams!

    current weight: 206.0







    Are your calories too high?
    I have noticed that if my carbs are the right level and I'm in ketosis, that if I see how many calories I've eaten, I'm usually around/over 1500.
    According to Atkins, eating protein/fat is supposed to keep you full so you don't want or need to overeat. I must concur! When I overeat because it tastes so good, but I'm not hungry, I see it in the scale. For me, I've learned 1200-1300 is a good place to be, and 70% fat/30% protein is a good ratio for me (the carbs range from 20-35 when I'm losing).
    Eating after dinner also causes me to stall.

    current weight: 192.0







    Tinamarie, are you actually counting your carbs? You may be eating more carbs than you think. I understand that you can register in ketosis with up to 30 net carbs/day, maybe more, but if you're in the induction phase, you only want to be at 20. I am pretty much at that point too. Also, are you exercising. I tend to lose more weight more quickly when I don't exercise. So if you're exercising and doing everything right, just keep it up and know that doing the right thing will get you to where you want to go. I too have been in ketosis for a while and am not losing weight - I work out at least an hour a day at least 5 days/week, so I know I'm getting in better shape and that the weight loss is going slower than it has been. I just keep doing what I'm doing and I know I will reach my goals - just not by the time I had hoped.
