Why Are Only Certain Organs Damaged?

Copyright 1996 by Diabetes Services, Inc. Cell health depends on a steady supply of fuel from glucose and free fatty acids. These two major fuels are both regulated by insulin released directly into the blood from beta cells in the pancreas. From the blood, an insulin molecule crosses the blood vessel wall and attaches to an insulin receptor on the outer wall of a muscle, liver or fat cell. This attachment triggers the movement of glucose into the interior of the cell, where it can be converted into energy for metabolism, repair and defense. In contrast to the complicated transport system for glucose, and to the chagrin of many, fat moves easily across cell membranes. If insulin levels are too low, less glucose enters cells, but more glucose is released by the liver and more fat is released from fat cells. So a low insulin level causes not only a high blood sugar but it also causes more fat to enter the blood. Cells in the muscle, liver, and fat need insulin to receive glucose. The first group of cells that need insulin, those in muscle, liver, and fat, do not become exposed to high internal glucose levels when the blood sugars are high and insulin levels are low. The lack of insu Continue reading >>

    Hi, I'm 37 y woman with pcos on metformin and currently 13 weeks pregnant. I was considering keto during pregnancy to lose weight (257 lbs, some of it is from my previous baby (stillborn in August)). However I'm a bit concerned that it could be nutrient deficient because I see posts about magnesium and salt needing supplements and keto flu. I also love fruit plus have cravings for carbs. Sometimes with the nausea it's all I can stomach. Is it advisable to start keto during pregnancy? Also I read stuff about it causing deformities to the fetus. Any insights? Thanks!

    My doctor said if you're already keto before pregnancy, he has no issue with it, but no drastic diet changes during pregnancy except cutting out things like sugar and caffeine. I'd consider starting small by just removing all processed sugar, honey, etc. from your diet. And don't compensate by eating a ton of fruit. Get you carbs from whole grains, brown rice, etc. That way you can step right into keto after without it being too difficult. It's actually pretty easy to lose weight while pregnant if you're already on the heavier side. Just don't eat extra... baby gets what it needs first, you'll start burning some fat for your own fuel.

    I like the idea of starting slowly. Thanks!

What is DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS? What does DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS mean? DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS meaning - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS definition - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS explanation. 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

Hyperglycemia And Diabetic Ketoacidosis

When blood glucose levels (also called blood sugar levels) are too high, it's called hyperglycemia. Glucose is a sugar that comes from foods, and is formed and stored inside the body. It's the main source of energy for the body's cells and is carried to each through the bloodstream. But even though we need glucose for energy, too much glucose in the blood can be unhealthy. Hyperglycemia is the hallmark of diabetes — it happens when the body either can't make insulin ( type 1 diabetes ) or can't respond to insulin properly ( type 2 diabetes ). The body needs insulin so glucose in the blood can enter the cells to be used for energy. In people who have developed diabetes, glucose builds up in the blood, resulting in hyperglycemia. If it's not treated, hyperglycemia can cause serious health problems. Too much sugar in the bloodstream for long periods of time can damage the vessels that supply blood to vital organs. And, too much sugar in the bloodstream can cause other types of damage to body tissues, which can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke, kidney disease, vision problems, and nerve problems in people with diabetes. These problems don't usually show up in kids or te Continue reading >>

Cerebral Intravascular Coagulation In Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Abstract The brains of six patients dying in diabetic ketoacidotic coma were examined histologically. Intravascular deposition of fibrin accompanied by ischæmic tissue damage was prominent in many vessels within the brain and other organs. Fibrinolytic and coagulation mechanisms were extensively studied in two patients before death and the results accorded with a major defect of these mechanisms. It is suggested that intravascular coagulation within the brain plays a major part in the production of coma in such patients and may well contribute to the mortality in this dangerous condition.

    Ketosis & BG

    Has anyone ever made a correlation between their blood sugar numbers and Ketosis? I imagine it would be different for everyone. seems to me that if the BG went down to x then you would switch into ketosis for fuel needs. Too high a BG and you wouldn't be in ketosis. Or am I off track here and it is purely the carb count that matters? I have read how atkins suggested increasing carbs each week to find the right level of carbs to maintain weight on his diet.
    Any ideas or thoughts?

  2. MarkM

    You can be in ketosis and have high blood sugar levels but low insulin levels. This what happens to T1s at onset, but it gets worse and there can be ketoacidosis. T2s, if they are insulin resistant and/or insulin deficient, can also be in ketosis and have above normal blood glucose levels.
    Normal people go in and out of ketosis every day. But for someone who has normal insulin production and insulin sensitivity, sustained ketosis would only occur if carb consumption dropped below what is needed to satisfy the normal daily glucose requirement. Some say this is 130 grams of carb a day. Low carbers will tell you it is a lot lower, based on their observations of ketone test results and eating patterns.
    That is my take on it anyway. And in answer to your question, no, I don't think there is a clear correlation there.

    I never gave it a thought. My concern is keeping blood sugar down.
