Diabetic Ketoacidosis Symptoms

What is diabetic ketoacidosis? Diabetic ketoacidosis, also referred to as simply ketoacidosis or DKA, is a serious and even life-threatening complication of type 1 diabetes. DKA is rare in people with type 2 diabetes. DKA is caused when insulin levels are low and not enough glucose can get into the body's cells. Without glucose for energy, the body starts to burn fat for energy. Ketones are products that are created when the body burns fat. The buildup of ketones causes the blood to become more acidic. The high levels of blood glucose in DKA cause the kidneys to excrete glucose and water, leading to dehydration and imbalances in body electrolyte levels. Diabetic ketoacidosis most commonly develops either due to an interruption in insulin treatment or a severe illness, including the flu. What are the symptoms and signs of diabetic ketoacidosis? The development of DKA is usually a slow process. However, if vomiting develops, the symptoms can progress more rapidly due to the more rapid loss of body fluid. Excessive urination, which occurs because the kidneys try to rid the body of excess glucose, and water is excreted along with the glucose High blood glucose (sugar) levels The presen Continue reading >>

    Hi all and congrats on all the successful keto babies ! 😊. I have been doing keto on and off for 3 years due to family loss but my hubby and I are back on it. I just hit my lowest today of 165.6 lbs!! 3 years ago when I got pregnant with our first son I was not doing keto, nor did I even know about keto. I went into the hospital weighing 280lbs and left at 245lbs. My son was 9lbs! After this we found keto and I got down to 175! But after a heartbreaking loss we fell off keto again and in January I was at 215lbs. So we got back on it and today I was at my lowest! However just last night we found out we are pregnant with our second baby! This was a total surprise. Now I'm desperately searching trying to find if: A- keto is okay to do while pregnant especially since my body was already adapted before? And B- most of the time I have been doing keto this time I have been doing IF 21/3. Is that still safe to continue unless I feel nauseous or my body let's me know it needs food? I am currently 5w1d and the only symptom I have is slightly sore boobs. Everything else is fine 👍. My first son from week 6 I had nausea and vomiting every day the whole pregnancy! Even the morning I delivered ( which was a scheduled c-section, which I'm doing again for health reasons). Thanks so much in advance!

    I do IF. And I've been pregnant. I'm 38 weeks. I keep carbs to 20 grams. I do 16:8 and I feel the best this way. Everything has been golden. I have almost felt like I'm not even pregnant at times because of all the energy. I know a lot of women worry about keto and pregnancy and it's like, you know we have lived a long time without having so much food. Humans lived through famine even while carrying babies. Dr. Simeon of the HGC protocol studied women during pregnancy and saw that low caloric intake for mother's while pregnant was OK because they had excessive weight to burn off. That's why we carry weight in our butts, hips, waists etc.. so if you're classified as obese or overweight it's very doable to go to 20 carbs a day and be healthy and have a healthy baby. There's zero carb mommas out there that deliver healthy babies. Babies in utero thrive off ketones. %33 ketone energy for brain development. I was keto in my first trimester and it helped stave off morning sickness. I had a vegetarian pregnancy with my daughter and the opposite happened to me. I threw up every day. With high fat and moderate protein I have been able to keep my weight gain to zero (started out at 240/now 225 at 5'7) then my water retention is near to zero, blood pressure is great, mood is pretty evened out although rn I feel ready as hell to deliver lol. I've had a very good pregnancy and the only thing I know I can say for sure that helped me was and is keto. Midwife approves.

    Thank you very much!!! And congratulations! 😊 this makes me feel so much better because I just refuse to gain all that weight back. And I feel fine now so I don't see how it could be bad? Thanks again for your reply and wishing you a safe and healthy delivery!
