Diabetic Hypoglycemia

Print Overview For people with diabetes, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) occurs when there's too much insulin and not enough sugar (glucose) in the blood. Hypoglycemia is defined as blood sugar below 70 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL), or 3.9 millimoles per liter (mmol/L). Several factors can cause hypoglycemia in people with diabetes, including taking too much insulin or other diabetes medications, skipping a meal, or exercising harder than usual. Pay attention to early warning signs, so you can treat low blood sugar promptly. Treatment involves short-term solutions — such as taking glucose tablets — to raise your blood sugar into a normal range. Untreated, diabetic hypoglycemia can lead to seizures and loss of consciousness — a medical emergency. Rarely, it can be deadly. Tell family and friends what symptoms to look for and what to do in case you're not able to treat the condition yourself. Symptoms Early warning signs and symptoms Early signs and symptoms of diabetic hypoglycemia include: Shakiness Dizziness Sweating Hunger Irritability or moodiness Anxiety or nervousness Headache Nighttime symptoms Diabetic hypoglycemia can also occur while you sleep.

    Where to buy CHEAP ketone strips?

    Ok, i'm ready to make the buy but been looking on Amazon at strips and meters and cant seem to find the right combo. Of course the strips should be Nova if I get a nova meter and same with the prescision or does what type of ketone strips matter with the meter?
    I read someone said they get the ketone strips from Canada for fairly cheap. I called the pharmacy at my clinic and they didnt have a clue as to what I was talking about.
    So I need to know if strips are meter specific or if they can go with any meter and where to buy cheapest strips for blood ketone meter.
    I'm all set and ready to order I just need to know what to order and many thanks!

    I bought the Precision Xtra meter on Amazon. I think it was around $18. I bought the strips from Buy Precision Xtra Online - Buy Prescriptions Online - Order Medications Online
    at $19.99 for 10 strips. I am sure that the strips are only good for the meters from the same manufactures. That is how they make their money. There is no generic test strip that I am aware of.

  3. Shanny

    I have the Nova Max Plus, and it requires Nova Max Plus ketone strips. My pharmacy has ten ketone strips for $20. I agree with Wally - there's no such thing as a generic strip - neither ketone nor glucose.

If your blood sugar gets too low it may lead to insulin shock, which is life-threatening if not cared for. Low blood sugar can happen when your body has too little food—or glucose—or when it produces too much insulin. Type 1 diabetes hypoglycemia symptoms So what are the low blood sugar symptoms you should look out for? It’s important to realize that the signs of low blood sugar will vary depending on the person. However, people with type 1 diabetes—whether it’s been diagnosed or not—may experience one or more of the following: -Sweating and shaking -Blurry vision -Poor coordination -Dizziness or feeling lightheaded -Difficulty concentrating -Feeling anxious or irritable -Hunger or nausea -Erratic changes in behavior What to do if you experience low blood glucose symptoms Severely low blood-sugar levels can lead to hypoglycemic seizures, unconsciousness Continue reading >>

    Hello,
    I started keto a week ago, because of the many benefits i read about. But mostly i wanted change in my diet, because it consisted mostly from carbohydrates (grains and fruits) and that in large amounts. At the time i feel pretty good and im way more confident with myself than i was two weeks ago. The "keto flu" hit me some day ago and i felt terrible but i thought "fuck it!" and made it through. But i wanted to ask, if a keto diet is really a healthy way of life, because i dont want to damage my kidneys, heart or other organs caused by the drastic changes in my eating habits. My doctor, which is pretty smart and always up-to-date said, that the body needs carbohydrates or you will fall into a coma caused of low blood sugar.
    Second are there any of you guys who do keto for some years now? And if yes do you suffer now from diseas caused by low blood sugar?
    Thanks!

    Tell your doctor to call me. As indicated in flair, I have MD after my name too. I've been in ketosis >95% of the past nineteen months.
    It's pretty disconcerting because it really does go against everything taught in med school for the past thirty-odd years, and most things that do so are really horrible ideas. Strong skepticism is warranted when someone says "you're all wrong!" Every once in a while, though, the iconoclast is right.
    This is one of those times. Mention Barry Marshall and H. pylori.

Click Here http://bit.ly/1o5ZWrF Treatment For Type 2 Diabetes In Children - Who Does Type 2 Diabetes in Children Affect? Make Sure To Check Out The Secret Presentation On The Link Above!! There are many difficulties for children and adolescents with type 2 diabetes. Having diabetes imposes certain restrictions that goes against the usual childhood experience. Treatments always have to be thought about and leaving the house always entails checking they have their insulin or their glucometer. For you, the parent, it is a constant concern for your child's health and treatment requirements. If your child is diagnosed with type 2, here are some important guidelines to consider: 1. What do you need to know: * It is important to have a full understanding of type 2 diabetes and to understand the rationale behind your child's treatment and medication. * Essentially it is a condition with no known cure which affects the body's metabolism * In type 1 diabetes, a defect in the immune system leads to destruction of the beta cells. This occurs suddenly and the pancreas stops producing insulin and insulin-injections are needed for survival * In type 2 diabetes however, insulin is produced by the body. There is not insulin-lack but rather the inability of the body to use it effectively. Blockage of its action is known as insulin-resistance. The body is forced to create much larger doses and with time, can cause pancreatic malfunction and other complications. 2. Psychological effects: After knowledge of the disease, the second important thing to remember is the affect type 2 diabetes has: * On the lifetime and psychology of the patient * Also on friends and family members who are involved and closely related to the diabetic In the early days following diagnosis many people often discount the social implications of diabetes. However, without proper mental preparation for all of the ways this condition will impact lives, it is possible for resentment to develop between the diabetic child and his siblings. Also, the psychological stress on you as parents is often great and can lead to feelings of self-blame. Once the emotional considerations are taken care of, either through counseling or group therapy, the next step is to acquaint yourself with the available treatment plans. 3. Treatments Most children with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese at the time of diagnosis. Treatment often begins with weight control and proper nutrition. Don't single out your child with diabetes and make them eat different foods from the rest of the family. Encouraging the whole family to eat similar foods will benefit everyone. Research has shown that optimal control without medications is obtainable in less than ten per cent of adults. Some children are given metformin and have good results, others who are very ill at the time of diagnosis may need insulin-injections at first to reduce their high blood sugar levels. It is also essential to change your child's sedimentary lifestyle; this is necessary to speed up weight loss but it also increases insulin-sensitivity at the cellular level. Type 2 diabetes affects the whole family, don't single out your child with diabetes and treat them differently to everyone else. They will feel they are being punished.

Hypoglycemia In Children With Type 1 Diabetes

Hypoglycemia, or low blood glucose (blood sugar), is a common complication that can occur with diabetes. The challenge for parents of children with type 1 diabetes is to know how to detect the symptoms of hypoglycemia and effectively treat it. This article addresses both those considerations. But first, it's important to have a solid understanding of hypoglycemia. EndocrineWeb has a comprehensive article series on this complication—and we invite you to read them to learn more. Below is a selection of hypoglycemia resources to get you started: Detecting Hypoglycemia Hypoglycemia occurs when your child's blood glucose levels fall below his or her target range. Target ranges are determined by your child's doctor and are unique to each child. For instance, your child may feel fine with a blood glucose reading of 70, but another child could show hypoglycemia symptoms with a reading slightly above 70.1 Knowing your child's target range and ensuring his or her blood glucose level stays within it is the main objective. If hypoglycemia isn't detected early on, it can cause serious problems, such as seizure or loss of consciousness. So what can you do to prevent your child's hypoglycemia f Continue reading >>

    Hi Everyone - I am new to Keto, and REALLY excited about changing my eating style (and bad habits!) - but I am not gonna lie, I am a bit *scared* about going from a low fat diet (pounded into my head for years!) and switching up to a High Fat one. But after all the research and reading (and seeing amazing success stories) I am ready to JUST DO IT!
    My question is, Do you initially gain some weight first when starting Keto - or does your body *get it* right away because of the very low carbs? I just want to be prepared to not have a $&it Fit if I get on the scale in a few days and see the number go up and not down
    Thanks in advance for any info - and if anyone would like to add me, I would love some motivated friends!!! ~Kathy
