Starvation Ketoacidosis: A Cause Of Severe Anion Gap Metabolic Acidosis In Pregnancy

This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Pregnancy is a diabetogenic state characterized by relative insulin resistance, enhanced lipolysis, elevated free fatty acids and increased ketogenesis. In this setting, short period of starvation can precipitate ketoacidosis. This sequence of events is recognized as “accelerated starvation.” Metabolic acidosis during pregnancy may have adverse impact on fetal neural development including impaired intelligence and fetal demise. Short periods of starvation during pregnancy may present as severe anion gap metabolic acidosis (AGMA). We present a 41-year-old female in her 32nd week of pregnancy, admitted with severe AGMA with pH 7.16, anion gap 31, and bicarbonate of 5 mg/dL with normal lactate levels. She was intubated and accepted to medical intensive care unit. Urine and serum acetone were positive. Evaluation for all causes of AGMA was negative. The diagnosis of starvation ketoacidosis was established in absence of other causes of Continue reading >>

    I'm in my 6th day of Induction and my Ketostix are not registering any changes. I drink about 112 ounces of water daily. Could I be drinking too much water and diluting the results? Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on the topic.

    Hmmm.... well, I can say that there are people who will get into Ketosis and the strips never show anything. Not sure why -- I've never used them because I can tell when I'm there -- I feel different. But just in case, why not post an example menu so that we can see if there is anything that stands out? Sorry I couldn't be more help right off the bat!

Herman Hesse said in his novel, Siddhartha: Everyone can perform magic, everyone can reach his goals, if he is able to think, if he is able to wait, if he is able to fast. Numerous studies have shown that caloric restriction increases the lifespan and youthfulness of almost all species, starting with fruit flies and ending with rhesus monkeys. In humans, there is no definite anti-aging proof but fastings been shown to improve biomarkers, reduce inflammation, promote stem cell growth, boost the immune system and make you burn a ton of fat. However, the key to successfully gaining these health benefits comes from avoiding malnutrition and starvation. Theres a hugedifference between fasting, starvationand caloric restriction, but it doesn't mean you can't be starving while intermittent fasting or consuming fewer calories.

Starvation Ketoacidosis: Treatment Pitfalls

Dear Editor, Yeow et al.1 describe a case of non-diabetic euglycaemic acidosis resulting from post op dysphagia and poor intake of approximately six weeks duration. We have seen a similar case of ‘starvation ketoacidosis’ in a patient undergoing percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy feeding tube replacement. We think that intravenous (IV) glucose should be the initial treatment, with the addition of insulin only if required. The correspondence from Frise and Mackillop2 states this strategy is effective for treating ketoacidosis in pregnancy; however, there are also some other pitfalls in treatment of starvation ketoacidosis which must be considered, and some overlap with alcoholic ketoacidosis. Unlike patients with diabetic ketoacidosis, patients with starvation ketosis release insulin when carbohydrate is administered. They are also producing high levels of glucose elevating hormones such as glucagon and have depleted glycogen stores. These hormones cause the lipolysis which helps generate ketones for fuel. The addition of exogenous insulin in this state risks hypoglycaemia. Once provided with adequate carbohydrate the insulin levels will rise and counter-regulatory hormone leve Continue reading >>

    I started keto about a month ago and this has never happened before - my pee started to get dark yellow and smells surprisingly funky - is that good? Is that bad?
    If it's bad, what do I change to stop it?

  2. guldilox

    You're probably both dehydrated and peeing out ketones. It is entirely possible it is bad, yes, but I am not a doctor and cannot make that diagnosis.
    Excretion of water soluble vitamins can also affect urine, most immediately noticeable would probably be excess B vitamins.
    Drink more water. Like, a lot more. And if it really doesn't change, then consult someone more professional than I.

***Homemade Pregnancy Test with Sugar*** This test is considered as one of the most reliable and easiest of the DIY pregnancy testers. It is a common kitchen ingredient, which makes a cost-effective homemade pregnancy tester. This pregnancy test was mostly used in the earlier days. ***Things you need*** ***Sugar – 1 tbsp*** ***Bowl – 1*** ***Urine – 3 tbsp*** ***Things you need to do*** ***When you get up in the first thing you need to do is to collect your urine in a bowl.*** ***Now take 1 tbsp of sugar in a bowl.*** ***Pour approx. 1 tbsp of urine on the sugar in the bowl*** ***Wait for few minutes to observe the reaction of sugar in the urine*** ***If you find that the sugar has dissolved in the urine that means that you are not pregnant*** ***If you find that the sugar has clumped up in the urine, then the result is positive and you are pregnant*** ***The presence of the hCG hormone in the urine does not allow the sugar to get dissolved in the urine*** Note: Follow this process in the morning after you get up from the bed to get more accurate result.

Starvation Ketoacidosis In Pregnancy

Abstract Starvation ketosis outside pregnancy is rare and infrequently causes a severe acidosis. Placental production of hormones, including glucagon and human placental lactogen, leads to the insulin resistance that is seen in pregnancy, which in turn increases susceptibility to ketosis particularly in the third trimester. Starvation ketoacidosis in pregnancy has been reported and is usually precipitated by a period of severe vomiting. Ketoacidosis is likely to have important implications for fetal survival as ketoacidosis in women with type 1 diabetes mellitus is associated with intrauterine death. This article features four cases of women with vomiting in the third trimester of pregnancy associated with a severe metabolic acidosis. The mechanism underlying ketogenesis, the evidence for accelerated ketogenesis in pregnancy and other similar published cases are reviewed. A proposed strategy for management of these women is presented. Continue reading >>

    I am considering getting a home meter to test my glucose and ketone levels. The meter’s are reasonably priced but test strips on Amazon are about $1 for glucose and $3 for ketones.
    I know what levels to look for and all that. But my question is how important is home testing and if it is important then how often should I do it?


  2. Shortstuff

    In my over two years on keto, I’ve only been testing for the last couple of months. It’s really not essential if you’re seeing the results you want, but is a useful tool if not.

    I only started testing because I was curious.

  3. KHAN

    I think if you are don’t need to test for ketones for health reasons, it’s a huge waste of money.
    If you’re diabetic or pre-diabetic, testing for blood sugar is very important. Especially if you’re tying to ween yourself off medication.

    If your a1c is normal, I wouldn’t bother.
