Where Is Ketoacidosis Found

Share on facebook

Prevmedheartrisk.com I have patients who are getting more and more insulin resistant - despite the fact that their lifestyle is exactly right. The right diet. Running. Weight lifting. But there are other risk factors - like aging. In fact, at age 60 over half of us will have insulin resistance. by age 65 25% of us have full diabetes. And 1/3 don't even know. Another 30-50% have insulin resistance. There are also epigenetic risk factors. Maternal weight gain, obesity and even paternal obesity has been shown to create epigenetic risks. Epigenetics have to do with expression of our genes - through hampering the "spooling" system or expression of genes. There is much research right now in aging. Nir Barzilai with Metformin. He's looking to amplify these enzymes with Metformin. David Sinclair is looking to amplify cell respiration with NMN. And Valter Longo has demonstrated improved gene expression through mimicked fasting. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many patients coming in dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. He went on the run the post-graduate training program (re

If You Were A Doctor And You Misdiagnosed And Mistreated A Patient Who Afterward Sought Care Successfully From Someone Else, Would You Want To Know About Your Mistake?

Before answering this question I will make a few clarifications. Misdiagnosed and hence mistreated is not unusual. It is more common than you think. The public needs to know that all wrong diagnoses are not medical negligence. Every doctor, I repeat every single doctor you ever know has made wrong diagnoses in his career. And most of them would like to know about their mistakes because it is a learning experience and they would like to avoid making them in the future. Diseases don't follow set guidelines or protocols. Their presentations can be so myriad that it is impossible to be hundred per cent sure. Hence every patient becomes a learning experience for the doctor and he must strive to know the results and follow up of both his successes and failures. Having said that in the current litigation and anti doctor mood that prevails among the general public, every mistake is viewed as negligence. This is further compounded by the attitude and behavior of the second doctor who in the glory of his successful diagnosis tries to put down the efforts of the previous doctor. They think that criticizing another doctor makes them look more superior and knowledgeable. Ultimately patients pou Continue reading >>

    Your nursing text should point out the difference. I would tell you, but I'd just have to look it up and my books are in storage. I could also google it, but something you can also do as well. Sorry.

    In HHNS, blood sugar levels rise, and your body tries to get rid of the excess sugar by passing it into your urine, your body tries to compensate. This usually happens to type 2s
    In DKA there is little to no circulating insulin. DKA occurs mainly, but not exclusively, in Type 1 diabetes because Type 1 diabetes is characterized by a lack of insulin production in the pancreas. It is much less common in Type 2 diabetes because the latter is closely related to cell insensitivity to insulin, not -- at least initially -- to a shortage or absence of insulin. Some Type 2 diabetics have lost their own insulin production and must take external insulin; they have some susceptibility to DKA. You get acidosis in DKA because ketones lower the bloods pH.
    Does that help?

It's also fast and easy :-) Want more? Head on over to my blog ht

How Do You Know If You Are In Ketosis?

There are 3 ways to directly measure ketosis: Urine test strips, like Ketostix - these stop working for most people after a couple of weeks because they only catch very high numbers, which are more important for a Type 1 Diabetic in danger of ketoacidosis. It’s also prone to error - dehydration will cause a false positive. In the first couple weeks on a ketogenic diet, your body is spilling out alot of extra ketones, but once your body is burning them efficiently, they don’t spill out anymore. They’re inexpensive, and can be ok to get you started, but I found them to be more discouraging in the long run. Blood test strips - this is accurate, but very expensive at the moment. The cheapest I’ve heard of is still over $1 per strip. Breath ketones - the only one I know of available for sale is the Ketonix Reusable Breath Ketone Analyzer in the US, or Home in the rest of the world. I have this one and like it alot. It cost about $200, but I’ve been able to adjust my diet and correlate how clear headed I feel to the number on the meter. Once you’ve measured a while, you generally can tell when you’re in because you’re thinking more clearly, and often have more energy over Continue reading >>

    High fasting blood sugar on keto

    Hi. I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes in November 2016. My brother has Type 2 so I knew I had to do something to stop my pre-diabetes from progressing I started to eat low carb and saw a slow reduction in my BS numbers. Then a month or so ago I started adding fat to my diet and am now eating keto. I am in low ketosis (urine test). My daily carb intake is approximately 40-60 grams.
    The results have been nothing short of miraculous! I've lost 17 pounds, my triglycerides have plummeted from 240 to 60, BP is way down, cholesterol dropped. All of my numbers look better than they have my entire adult life. My body seems to love this way of eating. It's been amazing and not difficult at all!
    My A1C went from 5.9 to 5.4. I am guessing it's around 5.2 now but I haven't tested since I went full keto. My only problem is that my morning fasting number has inched up. It was 95-99 when I was diagnosed. Then when I started to change my diet it dropped to the 88-95 range. After I started keto it's moved up to the 100-105 range. I'd like to work on getting this number down. My one and two hour post meal numbers are good, usually in the 100-120 range. Any suggestions on how I can lower the fasting number?
    Thanks so much.

Fasting numbers are usually the last to come down. It took me about a year of low-carb eating to get fastings in the 80s, and that's common for others here, too; it takes time.

Is Diabetes a threatening illness? By Dr Pratul Priyadarshi, M.D. (Medicine), Diabetologist Video by AddoDoc.com

Is Type One Diabetes As Serious An Illness As Type 2?

Type 1 diabetes is arguably MORE serious than Type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder. That means that it is chronic and incurable. Type 1 diabetics do not produce insulin at all. Type 2 is caused by overexposure and thus developed resistance to the insulin. You can, if you are vigilant, recover insulin sensitivity. Like Type 2 diabetes going into remission, to use familiar terms. Type 1 diabetics do not have that chance. Type 2 diabetes is sometimes treated with insulin in vet serious cases, but can usually be controlled with oral medications, diet, and exercise. Type 1 diabetes can ONLY be controlled with artificial insulin injections. Since Type 1 usually emerges in childhood, Type 1 diabetics get to look forward to life as a pincushion. Forever. Both are considered diabetes, but Type 1 and Type 2 are completely and utterly unrelated diseases that just happen to share a set of symptoms. It’s like comparing a child born without a leg to an adult who broke their leg in an accident. Sure, neither of them can walk, but the reasons that neither can walk are completely different, treated differently, and only one of the two ever has the chance to walk unaided in t Continue reading >>

    So, as I have been reading more and more about Ketogenic diets, the topic of Ketoacidosis repeatedly comes up. From what I understand, a prolonged Ketogenic diet would eventually lead to Ketoacidosis. Obviously, this is not the case as people have been doing Keto for extended periods of time and do not exhibit any of the harmful effects associated with Ketoacidosis. Does anyone have any good sources explaining this?

    can you link to any credible sources that say benign dietary ketosis would eventually lead to ketoacidosis?

    Here is an article documenting this in a woman on Keto diet for 4+ years. It was published by the New England Journal of Medicine.
    http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc052709
    It mentions that the woman may have had a pre-disposition to ketoacidosis. However, the pathways it mentions for ketoacidosis to occur suggest that it would be more likely in a starvation diet. It did not indicate that the woman was engaged in a low calorie keto diet.
    Another article documenting a similar case, but with the subject on the diet for approximately 3 weeks.

This is known as insulin resistance, and at present, there is no medical way to treat this. ...
