New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with What Do You Do If You Get Ketoacidosis??
hey guys today we’re gonna talk about what to do if you have ketoacidosis okay there’s a lot of confusion on what ketoacidosis is versus ketosis are they the same sometimes people scare you and say like don’t do ketosis because that’s dangerous what they’re talking about is ketoacidosis they have the same word ki tell like ketoacidosis is very different than ketosis so let me explain the three different types of ketoacidosis you have alcoholic ketoacidosis which we’re not going to talk about in this presentation you also have starvation ketoacidosis which would occur let’s say if you’re really starving not fasting but starving okay you’re you have no food and your body is eating up your own muscle and fat and you’re very thin like maybe even you have anorexia so we’re not gonna even cover this because these two are completely different we’re going to talk about the diabetic ketoacidosis condition okay mainly type one you can get it with type two if you’re taking a certain medication but it’s rare but type one it’s more common okay so let’s talk about that there’s there’s about five five abnormal things about diabetic ketoacidosis number one there’s hyperglycemia there’s high levels of blood sugar okay why because the type one doesn’t have any insulin so let’s say you forgot to take your insulin sugar goes really really really high okay so the other characteristic is low insulin or at no insulin so we just have very high blood sugar what’s gonna happen is that’s gonna drive a lot of electrolytes and fluid out of the body because you’re peeing out glucose and wherever the glucose goes the water goes and the electrolytes go so you have low blood volume okay low blood pressure you can feel weak so this is another characteristic right here you’re gonna have major potassium loss okay now you’re also going to get acidosis and this is the danger of diabetic ketoacidosis is the acidosis part normally the blood is between 7.35 and 7.45 it’s slightly alkaline and a very tight narrow band so you have if you have a mild problem it’ll be between seven point two five and seven point three you can see it’s just slightly less than this it’s not drastically moderate problem be seven to seven point two five and a severe acidosis would be below seven it gets really dangerous so this is really the danger of ketoacidosis okay now realize too that the potassium is alkaline and that’s supposed to buffer this condition but there’s loss of potassium so we don’t have those minerals including we don’t have magnesium either so if you have this condition you should go directly to the hospital and they’re gonna give you an IV and start putting back in fluids and electrolytes and then they’ll gradually put in potassium because if you don’t want to add too much potassium too suddenly if you’re completely in this situation because it can affect the heart but the point is that you need electrolytes you need fluid now this condition usually happens when you forget to take your insulin because if you don’t have insulin and then the blood sugar goes high and things get out of control if you have someone that tells you you shouldn’t do keto because you don’t want to risk ketoacidosis well what should you do should you go back to carbs well why would you do that you have to high blood sugar why would you want to add more carbohydrate to high sugar that’s gonna make it worse and people will say well because they don’t understand they’ll say well because if I had sugar I’m gonna increase my insulin well no you’re not not if you’re a type 1 diabetic you don’t have any insulin you’re just gonna add sugar to a body that has too much sugar you’re gonna make things worse so you don’t want to eat sugar if you have ketoacidosis or even want if you want to prevent it it’s really about insulin because you really want to monitor your insulin and take just amount to keep your sugars in check okay and realize the more sugar you have the more insulin you’re gonna need and you want to always make sure and this is why I recommend a healthy version of ketosis it’s called healthy keto by consuming enough vegetables that are mineral dense that are potassium rich in magnesium so you have the electrolytes that you need to prevent this problem right here now some of the symptoms of ketoacidosis are this thirst frequent urination exhaustion can’t breathe that well when you have acidosis if I could traps the air confusion dry mouth so if you’re doing healthy ketosis by cutting out carbs you can see very clearly that you’re not going to start developing this condition because you’re taking your electrolytes you’re making sure that your blood sugars are not too hot because you’re not eating sugar now you’re bringing your inste low but you’re not bringing it down to zero you’re by still making it it’s just like you don’t require as much because you’re running on ketones and so you don’t need as much insulin and that’s a good thing we need some but we don’t need excessive amounts now I wanna shift gears over here to talk about ketones ketones testing you can check your ketones with your urine or the blood all right so if you’re testing things and I’m gonna be talking about mili moles per liter and bhp which is beta hydroxy butyrate this is a type of ketone and this is the units right here so if you’re measuring your urine normal ketones would be 0.6 or less beginner’s keto point roughly around 0.6 advanced deeper keto that would be point six to three you’re starving will be between three and five risk of diabetic ketoacidosis would be greater than five then actual diabetic ketoacidosis is above ten okay so I mean look at the difference between like how many ketones versus what most people end up is this range right through in here okay maybe even right up here too so if you’re in this range and you feel fine I wouldn’t even worry about it now if you’re checking your blood it would be normal would be like less than 0.6 beginning kitto 0.6 roughly advance kitto 0.6 to 1.5 and then starving 1.5 and then risk of it would be 1 point 5 to 3 and then diabetic ketoacidosis is greater than 3 so you can see that the values do change when you’re checking in the blood now the real big point about this video is I wanted just to clarify any confusions you had and also really talk to those type 1 diabetics you don’t want to not check your blood sugars because you can actually not take enough insulin and create a problem and these are the symptoms right here but for everyone else you know now you can actually understand what your values are and to make sure it doesn’t get out of range but again you’re not gonna have to worry about it unless you’re type 1 or type 2 taking insulin and other medications alright guys talk to you later so if you’re enjoying this content go ahead and share it with someone that could really benefit from it
