Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a potentially life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus. Signs and symptoms may include vomiting, abdominal pain, deep gasping breathing, increased urination, weakness, confusion, and occasionally loss of consciousness. A person's breath may develop a specific smell. Onset of symptoms is usually rapid. In some cases people may not realize they previously had diabetes. DKA happens most often in those with type 1 diabetes, but can also occur in those with other types of diabetes under certain circumstances. Triggers may include infection, not taking insulin correctly, stroke, and certain medications such as steroids. DKA results from a shortage of insulin; in response the body switches to burning fatty acids which produces acidic ketone bodies. DKA is typically diagnosed when testing finds high b

    Burned esophagus after DKA

    I tried "Asking an Expert" but no answer yet on this… I need some advice here.
    I went into DKA over this past weekend. The vomiting burned my esophagus to the point that I can't eat regular foods because it hurts so bad. Has anyone experienced this? How long does the pain last? Any suggestions on how I can relieve the pain in the meantime? It's frustrating… swallowing food causes burning pain all the way from my throat down to my stomach.

    I did have that after one episode of DKA several years ago, only it was like everything I ate would give me really bad acid reflux. I don't recall a sore throat, but what I did have lasted a few weeks and was a real pain. Good luck to you, hope you are feeling better soon.

  3. Clare R

    All they gave me for the esophagus pain in the hospital was aluminum hydroxide (kinda like MOM) and it didn't help. And then they'd bring me a bunch of things I couldn't eat. I did my best and ate what I could, but that wasn't much. Even water was hard to get down. I don't have a problem with Vicodin… I've taken it plenty of times without withdrawal effects. I'm not sure if throat spray would work, unless I maybe took a swig of it before eating, but I doubt that's recommended.

This video demonstrates the Kussmaul breathing pattern seen with severe acidosis such as Diabetic Ketoacidosis. Initial pH was 6.95 and glucose was 812.

Kussmaul Breathing - An Overview | Sciencedirect Topics

Nicholas J. White, in Manson's Tropical Infectious Diseases (Twenty-third Edition) , 2014 Hyperventilation or Kussmaul's breathing (sometimes termed respiratory distress) is a poor prognostic sign in malaria. In the tachypnoea associated with high fever, breathing is shallow compared with the ominous laboured hyperventilation associated with metabolic acidosis, pulmonary oedema or bronchopneumonia. Acute pulmonary oedema (acute respiratory distress syndrome) may develop at any time in severe falciparum malaria. It is particularly common in pregnant women, but rare in children. In some cases malaria ARDS may be difficult to distinguish clinically from pneumonia. The heart sounds are normal. The central venous pressure and pulmonary artery occlusion pressures are usually normal, the cardiac index is high and systemic vascular resistance is low. This points to an increase in capillary permeability (unless the patient has been overhydrated). The chest radiograph shows increased interstitial shadowing and a normal heart size. Julian L. Seifter, in Goldman's Cecil Medicine (Twenty Fourth Edition) , 2012 Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, anorexia, polydipsia, and polyuria. Patients ofte Continue reading >>

    I have been low carb for 2 weeks and I was doing good. I have about 20 carbs a day, however, today I had 15 grams of carbs and I cheated by having a few bites of my husbands Ice cream sandwhich. I figure I had 7 grams of suar and 12 grams of carbs from my cheat. So I had 27 grams of carbs for the day and 7 grams of added sugar not counting the natural sugar from the veggies I ate today. Could my cheat throw me out?

  2. MermaidTX

    Your diary for today shows you had 29 carbs. The 9 sugar carbs & the 4 fiber carbs are included in that carb total. But for sake of ketosis, you can deduct the fiber so your net carbs is only 25.
    Even at 29 carbs (without deducting fiber) you shouldn't get kicked out.
    Some people can get to 50g carbs daily & not get kicked out. I've never tried that myself tho.

Excess CO2 causes the pH of blood and other bodily fluids to decrease, making them too acidic. Normally, the body is able to balance the ions that control acidity. This balance is measured on a pH scale from 0 to 14. Acidosis occurs when the pH of the blood falls below 7.35 (normal blood pH is between 7.35 and 7.45).Rinku Chaudhary NSG officer AMU ALIGARH https://www.facebook.com/rinkutch/ Respiratory acidosis is typically caused by an underlying disease or condition.

Respiratory System And Diabetes

Tweet The respiratory system is the system of organs that allow the body to take in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide, this process is known as gaseous exchange. We generally breathe between 12 and 20 times a minute. There are a number of complications of diabetes that can negatively affect our breathing. Parts of the respiratory system The following parts of the body make up the respiratory system: Mouth and nose Trachea (windpipe) Lungs Diaphragm How the respiratory system works Breathing is usually initiated by contraction of the diaphragm, a muscle which separates the chest cavity from the abdomen. Tweet Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder that results in hyperglycemia (high blood glucose levels) due to the body: Being ineffective at using the insulin it has produced; also known as insulin resistance and/or Being unable to produce enough insulin Type 2 diabetes is characterised by the body being unable to metabolise glucose (a simple sugar). This leads to high levels of blood glucose which over time may damage the organs of the body. From this, it can be understood that for someone with diabetes something that is food for ordinary people can become a sort of metaboli Continue reading >>

    Hi, my wife recently complained that my breath is sweet (not in a good way tho) every now and then, most recently the morning after a day in which i exercised very hard and a night in which i drank hard too.
    I know this is a sign of ketoacidosis as a result of high blood sugar levels so am concerned.
    A little about me: I'm type 1 and generally in very good control of my blood sugar. That morning i woke up high (240) but she has smelt it other mornings when i went to sleep and woke up with blood sugar between 80 and 120. Also, I like to exercise really hard (when i get a chance to do it) and also drink a fair amount of coffee (in the morning) and beer (at night).
    Anyone experience something similar? Or have any thoughts?
    Thanks!

    Drinking hard? Well your body is metabolising alcohol, instead of glucose!
    My father was an alcoholic, and I DEFINITELY recall smelling ketone breath on him. You need to cut back on the drinking a bit.

The body is constantly doing work to maintain an average temperature and neutral blood acidity. To make sure this balance happens; the kidneys and cells rely on bases or buffers, chemical compounds that bind with hydrogen ions.
