    Insulin plays a key role in helping sugar (glucose) enter your cells, thus providing them energy. When your cells don't get the glucose they need for energy, your body begins to burn fat for energy, which produces ketones. Ketones are acidic and so when they build up in the blood, they make the blood more acidic, leading to the condition called diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).
    Now, in type-1 diabetes, there is no insulin production whereas in type-2, there is impairment of insulin production. Thus why Type-2 diabetic people hardly get DKA.
    Note: Diabetic ketoacidosis is a serious condition that might lead to diabetic coma or even death.

  2. Lucas Verhelst

    In order for the cells in your body to access the glucose in your bloodstream so they can use it as energy they need insulin. Insulin acts like a key, opennin the cell door to allow the entry of glucose. Type 1 diabetics produce no insulin and need to inject it, thus the amount of insulin they have is strictly limited. Once they run out of insulin the glucose remains in the blood stream. If this occurs over a long period of time their blood glucose levels will rise due to the release of glucose from the liver. High blood sugar levels causes ketoacidosis which leads to coma and death.

  3. Keith Phillips

    Although type 2 diabetics suffer from insulin resistance, the condition rarely has an absolute negative effect on the bodies ability to convert glucose to usable energy. Type 1 diabetics have little or no ability to produce insulin. With the exception of neural cells, the rest of the body which without insulin is experiencing starvation, will consume its own tissues. (this is how people have endured periods of famine). This process however produces by products that eventually overwhelm the body's ability to process toxins.

Eyes with macular edema caused by retinal branch vein occlusion underwent masked evaluation of fluorescein angiography to determine complete macular perfusion vs incomplete macular perfusion (capillary dropout, ischemia). Cases evaluated as incomplete macular perfusion showed a greater frequency of improvement (91%) in visual acuity than did perfused cases (29%) (P = .003) after a mean follow-up of 39 months. Ischemic edema is often transient, and is associated with a good outcome in visual acuity (median final visual acuity was 20/30). Perfused macular edema has a poorer prognosis for visual acuity (median final visual acuity was 20/80). Macular ischemia is usually associated with a broken foveal capillary ring. Previous animal research on ischemic brain edema has shown that following brain ischemia, an intracellular and an extracellular hypertonic environment lead to intracellular and extracellular edema (cytotoxic edema), which is often followed by vascular protein leakage (vasogenic edema). A similar occurrence in ischemic retina could explain the transient edema reported herein, with good outcome in visual acuity following the spontaneous resolution of edema.

Diabetes mellitus is a complex, multifactorial and heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by endogenous insulin deficiency and/or insulin resistance. The diseasemanifests itself as a state of chronic hyperglycemia with attendant microvascular and macrovascular complications. Macular edema may be present in any stage of diabetic retinopathy and is defined as any one of the following: Retinal thickening within 500 microns of the foveal center Hard exudates within 500 microns of the foveal center, if associated with the thickening of the adjacent retina Retinal thickening greater than one disc area in size, part of which is within one discdiameterof the center of the macul Walls of the blood vessels in the retina become fragile and weakened Weakened blood vessels have an increase in vascular Continue reading >>

    Got a quick call today from my doctor since I had a routine physical and got bloodwork and urine tests done.
    He said everything was normal except for really low vitamin D levels and oddly enough, ketones in my urine. He explained that typically it's a sign of uncontrolled diabetes but my blood sugar is fine. He ordered an a1c done at the time that I got all of my bloodwork done just to be thorough. I don't have the results in front of me but I could request a hard copy of them. Anyway, he assured me that I'm not diabetic.
    I'm a 20 y/o college student.
    Is ketones in the urine a precursor to diabetes? I did read that fasting or starvation can lead to temporary high ketone levels. As a full-time college student, let's just say that my sleeping schedule is rather...irregular. I had to fast for the blood test that morning so my last meal was dinner that evening. I didn't sleep until 7 am that morning and my appointment was at 9 am, so...yeah...
    The doctor said the next step would be a 24 hr urine test since they double-checked my results to make sure I actually had ketones in my urine and I did. But he also said there's no rush at all. I can't get the test till I'm actually back home so I'm just wondering now what it could be

    Did you know the volume of ketones in your urine? Was it slight or high?
    Slight to moderate ketones can occur with exercise. Did you work out or do some strenuous physical activity before your appointment?
    People on low carbohydrate diets go into ketosis (usually preferably). These are things to consider if your testing does rule out Diabetes.
    Plus, this was a one time test. Without other symptoms or clinical presentations to preclude a diagnosis, it may be easier to simply repeat a urine sample next time, too. Shouldn't need to be a fasting sample, either.

  3. sweetthing

    Most likely caused by dehydration. Young people often do not get enough to drink. I would just make sure you have lots of water before your next test. You said you had been fasting since supper the night before? If you were a bit dry then and didn't drink anything, you could very easily have been dehydrated.

Get Ready For Icd-10 Changes

The one-year reprieve ends October 1. Heres what you can expect and how to prepare. About one year ago, we were concerned that chaos would occur and the claims processing system we rely on daily might collapse following the implementation of ICD-10. As we know, the system did not collapse and most claims were processed without incident. The most common challenges occurred with coverage for diagnostic tests like optical coherence tomography scans. Some Medicare contractors omitted or overlooked adding some of the new ICD-10 diagnosis codes to Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) that spell out coverage for particular services like surgical or diagnostic procedures. In several areas, new diagnosis codes were not on the October 1, 2015, LCDs, causing erroneous denials. The contractors were responsive to medical societies and individuals and updated the LCDs accordingly. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) also stipulated in its July 2015 publication CMS and AMA Announce Efforts to Help Providers Get Ready for ICD-10 Frequently Asked Questions that, beginning October 1, 2015, they would not deny or audit claims as long as the diagnosis coding remained in the correct fam Continue reading >>

    I just recently had a full blood profile done, and it states that my glucose is 90, with the normal range being 75-110mg/dl. My question is this: for 8 weeks prior to this I had been adhering to a very strict keto diet, with my only carbs coming from 1 serving of macadamia nuts and 1 cup of cottage cheese (15 or so carbs daily) with a carb-up every Saturday until 4pm or so. Now, the blood test was given on a Friday, and in addition I had been fasting since 6pm the preceding evening, in which I only had 1 cup of cottage cheese with 1tbsp. of flax oil. So, what exactly is this telling me? Is my blood glucose unusually high for someone that has followed a moderate-high protein intake and high fat intake? Or does this mean something entirely different? The reason that I ask is when I had it tested roughly a year ago I was eating close to 40/30/30-like, and my glucose was 79. Can someone please explain?

  2. Import

    Any keto experts out there? This is something that I am really concerned about? Can someone offer an explanation?

    Dude, you're fine. Your levels are normal, your glucose won't be below 50 or 60 unless your taking insulin or have a beta cell tumor.
