Type 1 Diabetes Hypoglycemia

Share on facebook

The University of Birmingham's Medical School states that if the body becomes used to being low on sugar, hypo symptoms can become less noticeable. Loss of symptoms of low blood sugar in particular can be dangerous. If you have difficulty recognising the symptoms of hypoglycemia, speak to your doctor.

Hypoglycemia In Children With Type 1 Diabetes: Unawareness Is A Concrete Risk

Click to increase image sizeClick to decrease image size The incidence of type 1 diabetes (T1D) is increasing rapidly, especially in younger age groups. The data from Western European Diabetes Mellitus Centers suggest an annual rate increase of 34% in children and adolescents 1 Patterson CC, Dahlquist GG, Gyurus E, etal.

    I've been doing the keto diet for about 2 weeks already, I've lost 9 pounds already following the diet, I've also done a lot of exercise and counting my calories with MFP.
    The thing is that I don't know if I'm loosing weight just because I'm eating less calories and doing exercise or because i'm also in Ketosis...
    I don't really know if my pee smells worse, neither I feel a metallic breath (just whenever my mouth is dry is the time that I feel that my breath stinks, but don't know if this means something), and I've looked everywhere in my city for those ketostix but I guess they are not common here in Colombia...
    So my question really is, if there's another way to know if i'm in ketosis...

    Eating less than 25g carbs a day [√]
    Not eating 300g+ protein a day [√]
    If you have fulfilled those requirements for at least 2-3 days, you'll be in ketosis.
    Don't even bother with the ketostix, they're inaccurate. You'll be in ketosis as long as you don't eat too many carbs or eat a ridiculous amount of protein.
    Losing weight is just eating less calories, keto just helps you fill satisfied while doing so which in return makes a higher deficit easier for some. You don't instantly start dropping pounds by eating keto friendly foods, it's entirely possible to gain weight while in ketosis. It all comes down to calories.

    Are ketostix really inaccurate? I've never heard that before.

A Case Of Recurrent Hypoglycemia In A Patient With Type 1 Diabetes: When The Obvious Is Not So Obvious!

A case of recurrent hypoglycemia in a patient with type 1 diabetes: when the obvious is not so obvious! Ruchir Trivedi, Gautam Das, Joanne Cutler & Parijat De Diabetes & Endocrine Unit, City Hospital, Birmingham, United Kingdom. Hypoglycemia is not uncommonly encountered in healthy type 1 diabetics. It has diverse etiologies but food-insulin mismatch, exercise, drugs, co-existing adrenal, thyroid and coeliac disease, neuro-endocrine tumours & factitious hypoglycemia are the most common causes. We describe the case of a 23-year old Caucasian male with type 1diabetes of 3-years duration with recurrent episodes of unexplained hypoglycemia. He was otherwise well and denied any systemic symptoms apart from weight loss in the last 18 months. He was a non-smoker and non-alcoholic. He had diabetic neuropathy but no nephropathy or retinopathy. He was injecting insulin Lispro (three times daily) and insulin Glargine at bed time but had poor glycemic control (HbA1c 9.1%). He was admitted for further investigations to get to the bottom of his recurrent hypoglycaemic spells. Routine blood tests and biochemistry was normal. He was not acidotic and urinanalysis showed presence of ++ glucose and Continue reading >>

    Post copied from CW Counsellors original post in the thread below
    Alcohol is a powerful inhibitor of gluconeogenesis. In fact, it forces part of the gluconeogenic metabolic process into reverse. This means that if all the glucose in the blood is being derived from gluconeogenesis then the consumption of alcohol will inevitably cause the blood glucose level to fall. Worse still, the alcohol also stops ketone body production, thus leaving the brain entirely without fuel.
    A person who is ketotic is 100% reliant on gluconeogenesis to maintain adequate levels of glucose in the blood. If, under these circumstances alcohol is taken, the person will become disorientated and might lose consciousness, not just from the alcohol, but from low blood sugar. Needless to say, this could be very dangerous, and even fatal.
    Alcohol does not have these effects if the glycogen stores in the liver are normal. Under these circumstances the blood glucose level in the blood is maintained by the breakdown of liver glycogen, a process that is not influenced by alcohol. If a person becomes confused under these circumstances it is due simply to the pharmacological effects of the alcohol!

    Thanks for this, I have a function coming up towards the end of Feb, I think I will gently knock myself out of ketosis the day before without gorging, eat a sensible meal on the day as well before going out in the evening. Do you think that will be ok?
    There is no point me saying I won't drink when I go there because I will and I would rather not be poorly! I won't have a lot, I never do but I am not going to take the risk with even one teeny drink whilst in KT. Just gutted have to get back into it after, oh well, life happens and all part of the learning curve

    DKA How long do I have

    What I want to know is if my pump runs out of insulin at 4 a.m. how long before DKA sets in. I will be getting more insulin in the morning. Will I survive.

  2. Stump86

    Even when a pump says empty it will usually still have a few units left (5-10U) so that may be enough to hold you over.
    DKA can occur in just a few hours of no insulin, but you will have IOB for at least 4 hours after your pump actually gets empty. If you are worried you should test for ketones every few hours to make sure they aren't building up. And be on the lookout for any symptoms.
