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.

Renal Tubular Disorders

Renal tubular disorders are a very heterogeneous group of hereditary and acquired diseases that involve singular or complex dysfunctions of transporters and channels in the renal tubular system. The disorders may lead to fluid loss and abnormalities in electrolyte and acid-base homeostasis. Renal tubular acidosis ( RTA ) refers to normal anion gap (hyperchloremic) metabolic acidosis in the presence of normal or almost normal renal function. The various types of RTA include proximal tubular bicarbonate wasting (type II), distal tubular acid secretion (type I), very rarely carbonic anhydrase deficiency (type III) , and aldosterone deficiency/resistance (type IV). X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets , the most common form of hereditary hypophosphatemic rickets , is caused by phosphate wasting and presents with hypophosphatemia and symptoms related to rickets . Bartter syndrome , Liddle, and Gitelman syndrome are inherited disorders of tubular function that are characterized by hypokalemia and metabolic alkalosis . Renal tubular disorders are suspected when characteristic clinical features and/or laboratory findings are present. The diagnosis of hereditary conditions is usually confirme Continue reading >>

    I am 10 weeks into Keto and have never cheated! Two weeks ago I ended having really bad anxiety and threw up at work, left work and as soon as I got home I had diarrhea. Then that was it. Didn't happen anymore that day. I chalked it up to anxiety.

    I decided to try a second extended fast starting last night at 10:15, I want to go a couple days, last time I went 41 hours. Anyway, I decided to try and load up on fats yesterday to try and help with the fast. Then this morning around 2 am I woke up with diarrhea and then I threw up. Haven't had any issues since then. I also didn't have any intense anxiety yesterday. Anyone know what could be causing this? I keep trying to google this, but information is so biased out there. Ketoacidosis keeps popping up and I just don't think that is it...or am I wrong?

  2. Fiorella

    I really really really doubt ketoacidosis is the issue.

    Can you provide more details on your typical eating regime, and what extra fats you ate the day before you had the experience? This will help us provide you with some insight.

    Yesterday for breakfast I had 3 pieces of bacon, 2 eggs fried in bacon grease, and a small avocado. I also had a small coffee on the side with HWC. Usually I only have coffee for breakfast, but I had a work party in the afternoon and didn't want to be tempted to eat whatever they catered with.
    I went to the party and it was actually burgers! Since I wanted to fast starting that night, I thought it might be ok to eat. So I had a burger on a bed of lettuce with a tomato, cheese and mustard. I also drank a lot of water.
    For dinner, I had some pot roast that was cooked in the crock pot with butter and I mixed some sour cream into mine. Then after dinner I had a few fat bombs that I make in ice cube trays so they aren't very big. Overall, my calorie intake was more than normal according to MFP, but I usually don't monitor that. I just noticed it yesterday.

    I drank a lot of water throughout the day and some Powerade zero as well.

In this video we discuss what is homeostasis and why it is important for health. We also cover what is set point, and cover how homeostasis uses it to keep a stable internal environment. What is homeostasis? To be brief and to the point, homeostasis is the relatively constant state maintained by the body. Mainly this means that over time, the internal body will maintain a stable environment. So, for example, if the external temperature is cold or hot, the internal body temperature will remain relatively constant at 98.6f or 37c, the internal body temp may vary a little above or below this number, but that will still be normal. So, lets say we took someones body temperature over a certain time period. If we plot that on a chart it may look something like this. Here, body temperature rose slightly, and here it fell a little. But, the normal body temperature range is from 97.7 to 99.5. So, our subject was inside the normal range throughout the time span. Homeostasis doesnt just apply to body temperature, but many other conditions as well. The human body needs to maintain a certain range of nutrients in the blood stream, such as water, glucose, salt, and other elements as well. We get our blood work done from time to time to check and make sure we dont have high glucose or cholesterol levels, or too low levels of certain vitamins or minerals. Set point is an important term when discussing homeostasis. Set point is a normal range that the body tries to stay in. For instance, the normal range for systolic blood pressure is between 80 and 120. So homeostasis is sought by the body to keep systolic blood pressure in this range or set point. However, the body can change the set point. In many people weight gain leads to higher systolic blood pressure. This could be due to many factors, but the point is that the body changed the blood pressure set point to keep homeostasis. So now, maybe after the weight gain, someones systolic blood pressure may be at 140, which is considered unhealthy and at a risk for some diseases, but the body felt to keep homeostasis it needed to change and pump blood harder. The ability of the body to maintain homeostasis is crucial to life, and each of the systems in the body plays important roles. It is often times easier to understand homeostasis by constructing a model to make the concept clearer. Many sources use a fish tank comparison. Here we have a fish tank filled with water. The water represents body fluid, or the internal environment. The glass that encloses the water or fluid would be the skin, creating a barrier separating internal from external. The fish in the tank represent cells, which want to stay alive. But the cells need nutrients from the external environment in order to survive. The cells need oxygen, so we can put an air pump in the tank, which would represent the lungs, pumping oxygen into the tank. Ok, now we need a filter to get rid of wastes, which would represent the kidneys. Next we need to add a heater to keep a constant temperature, and the heater would represent the muscles. And finally we need food, or at least the nutrients contained in food, so, we hook up a feeder to our fish tank to feed those fish, or cells, and the feeder would represent the digestive system. So, our fish tank is complete, and with everything working together, we have relatively stable and constant conditions, which equal homeostasis. Keep in mind that our fish tank model only covers a few of the aspects involved in maintaining homeostasis, as there are actually far more mechanisms involved in the body keeping at a state of homeostasis.

Acid-base Homeostasis: Overview For Infusion Nurses

Acid-Base Homeostasis: Overview for Infusion Nurses September/October 2016, Volume 39 Number 5 , p 288 - 295 This article has an associated Continuing Education component. Expires October 31, 2018. Go to CE Details Acid-base homeostasis is essential to normal function of the human body. Even slight alterations can significantly alter physiologic processes at the tissue and cellular levels. To optimally care for patients, nurses must be able to recognize signs and symptoms that indicate deviations from normal. Nurses who provide infusions to patients-whether in acute care, home care, or infusion center settings-have a responsibility to be able to recognize the laboratory value changes that occur with the imbalance and appreciate the treatment options, including intravenous infusions.

    Depends on how hard you workout.. what you eat. You shock your system the first week and some. You could easily lose 10-12lbs in that time frame. It'll mostly be water weight tho. Realistically you're looking to lose between 1-2 lbs per week. You could lose more, but you don't want to lose too fast.

Hyporeninemic Hypoaldosteronism

Author: James H Sondheimer, MD, FACP, FASN; Chief Editor: Vecihi Batuman, MD, FASN more... This article reviews some of the pathophysiologic aspects, the clinical picture, and the treatment strategies of hyporeninemic hypoaldosteronism from the standpoint of clinical presentation, evaluation, and treatment. In chronic kidney disease (CKD), the kidney retains a remarkable ability to compensate for nephron loss by increasing single-nephron excretion of various substances. This situation is particularly important in the renal adaptation to potassium handling. (For a detailed discussion of the regulation of acid-base balance, see Metabolic Acidosis .) When compensation is intact, hyperkalemia is uncommon until renal function (glomerular filtration rate [GFR]) decays to an advanced stage (ie, GFR or creatinine clearance 15 mL/min). At times, however, tubular adaptation is impaired, and hyperkalemia is observed much earlier in the course of CKD. This picture of hyperkalemia , often with mild acidosis, in the setting of mild-to-moderate CKD (stages 2-4) is quite common in clinical practice. Several pathophysiologic mechanisms are involved. However, the diagnostic workup does not always e Continue reading >>

    For those who are eating fruit, how has it affected you plan? Whenever I have any (berries or melon) it throws me out of ketosis. Has anyone else experienced this? Do you still lose, or does it cause a stall?

  2. Marieshops

    Adding fruit into my meals in OWL had no negative impact. The main thing that helped me was I did move up the ladder slowly as Dr. A recommended to see how my body would react to the extra carbs and different foods. I can now have fresh strawberries with my breakfast, some melon with lunch and suffer no ill effects. Each person is different, so you will need to chart your own progress and see how slowly adding in 5 more carbs each week works for you. Good luck.
