Case 23-2013 — A 54-year-old Woman With Abdominal Pain, Vomiting, And Confusion

The description of this case was presented as a Case Challenge. Readers were invited to review the case description, vote on the diagnosis, and submit comments. The full case discussion and final diagnosis now appear below, along with the poll results. Dr. Sara R. Schoenfeld (Medicine): A 54-year-old woman was admitted to this hospital because of abdominal pain, vomiting, and confusion. The patient was in her usual health until approximately 3 days before admission, when she reportedly began to feel unwell, with weakness, chills, and skin that was abnormally warm to the touch. She self-administered aspirin, without improvement. During the next 2 days, her oral intake decreased. Approximately 22 hours before presentation, vomiting occurred. Nine hours before presentation, she began to travel home to Italy from the eastern United States. During the next 2 hours, increasing abdominal pain occurred, associated with vomiting and shortness of breath, and she took additional aspirin for pain. Approximately 2 hours before presentation, while the patient was in flight, abdominal pain markedly worsened, vomiting increased, and she became confused and unresponsive. The flight was diverted to Continue reading >>

    Getting sick more often on keto, is it coincidence?

    Almost all throughout last year I was not dieting or exercising at all but was never sick. I (re-)started my Keto diet right after Christmas, and about a week after, I got sick with sore throat/coughing/runny nose. I finally recovered after about 3-4 days. Now (2-3 weeks later), I'm sick again with a sore throat. Can the Keto diet, calorie deficit, or maybe too much exercise be the cause?

Causes Of Lactic Acidosis

INTRODUCTION AND DEFINITION Lactate levels greater than 2 mmol/L represent hyperlactatemia, whereas lactic acidosis is generally defined as a serum lactate concentration above 4 mmol/L. Lactic acidosis is the most common cause of metabolic acidosis in hospitalized patients. Although the acidosis is usually associated with an elevated anion gap, moderately increased lactate levels can be observed with a normal anion gap (especially if hypoalbuminemia exists and the anion gap is not appropriately corrected). When lactic acidosis exists as an isolated acid-base disturbance, the arterial pH is reduced. However, other coexisting disorders can raise the pH into the normal range or even generate an elevated pH. (See "Approach to the adult with metabolic acidosis", section on 'Assessment of the serum anion gap' and "Simple and mixed acid-base disorders".) Lactic acidosis occurs when lactic acid production exceeds lactic acid clearance. The increase in lactate production is usually caused by impaired tissue oxygenation, either from decreased oxygen delivery or a defect in mitochondrial oxygen utilization. (See "Approach to the adult with metabolic acidosis".) The pathophysiology and causes Continue reading >>

    Hi guys,
    question, is pork crackling ( like chips ) the same as pork kraailing?
    I got some from Frankies Fenner's Meat Market ( klooff street , CT ).
    Where can I get Kraailing from?
    Kaaiings or Kaiings are usually small square pieces of deep-fried fat. In essence the same as crackling, just presented slightly differently. Interestingly because kaaiings are saturated animal fat, they can last for a long time outside of a refrigerator without going rancid, which makes them really handy as a carry-along source of fat.
    You can get them from Winelands Pork in Stikland, Bellville.

    Because you had been on a fairly strict LCHF regime prior to this, it means that you became properly adapted. Your "second engine" is built and ready, you just needed to switch it on again.
    I have had some horror weekends w.r.t. carbs and I am back into ketosis in under 3 days every time. Just shows that being a little strict initially does pay dividends in the long run - now you can have those "cheat days" and you don't have to go through re-adaptation. Just keep the cheat days to days and not weeks....

Metformin Side Effects: Side Effects of Metformin: Metformin and Diabetes

Metformin Side Effects | Health Guides Daily

General Causes of Metformin Side Effects: This is potentially the most serious of the metformin side effects. The uptake of lactate by the liver is effected by metformin in a negative way. If the kidneys do not process the excess lactate the blood of the patient will acidify which can lead to a whole slew of problems. Most of which are similar to the feeling one gets after an intense workout. For example: anxiety, hyperventilation, irregular heart rate nausea and in some cases vomiting. This is the reason that metformin is generally only prescribed to people with a healthy kidney function. This side effect is potentially lethal and when you experience any of the symptoms you should immediately contact your doctor or a local hospital. Complications do occur when dealing with these problems, but are fairly rare. The rate of fatalities is reported to be around 1 in 1000 over a 10 year period. While this may seems significant, it still pales to the likely rate of fatality that untreated type 2 diabetes patients would face, which according to various sources lies in the range of 50 per 1000 patients over a ten year period. The most common negative effects for taking metformin. Clinical Continue reading >>

    Getting rid of ketones?

    Anyone have advice for helping to get rid of ketones in the urine. I'm definitely not dehydrated - I drink a ton of water each day, completely avoid caffeine, and haven't been throwing up much or at all lately. My blood sugar is not high, completely within GD guidelines. So I'm thinking that the ketones must be from not getting enough carbs.
    I am eating as much as I can. I haven't had much of an appetite since becoming pregnant, but beyond that, I have delayed gastric empyting and severe reflux - so I really can't get more into my stomach. If I try for more volume of food, it will come back up.
    Suggestions for foods that have a bit more carbs without a ton of volume, and something that is less likely to spike my BS (I know this is individual).

    Relevant is that my GD is probably a result of long-time steroid use - going off the pred is not a possibility. I'm supposed to be trying to take in 175 g of carbs a day for the pregnancy. Right now I am making it to 100 on a good day (todays total is 89), and that is even with a late night (1 am) snack. My blood sugars are what I would consider to be good - has been between 78 and 85, and 2 hours pp has been between 93 and 117,

    I'm not used to thinking in terms of GD, but it seems to me that the ketones with lower blood glucose mean you are burning body fat instead of food for energy. Why not add more protein or fat instead of carbs? Does gastroparesis make that difficult?

    True - the ketones are likely a product of burning fat instead of food. Which would not be a horrible thing, generally, but most docs want you to avoid ketones, regardless of the cause, during pregnancy. There are some studies that say that they can have negative effects on the baby.

    If increasing other fat and protein will make them go away, I can probably swing that - at this point everything suggested to me has been that I need to eat more carbs. It is ok for me to lose a little bit of weight, because I'm overweight, but right now I'm losing at a rate that they are worried about.
