#1127: MM- Diabetic Ketoacidosis

The Staying Young Show 2.0 - Entertaining | Educational | Health & Wellness

Release Date: 06/04/2019

Do you suffer from diabetes mellitus?  If so, you may want to listen up!  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute.  Diabetic ketoacidosis can happen when the body does not make or receive enough insulin, causing the body to break down fat, not sugar, for energy.  This fat is turned into acids called ketones by the liver.  Ketones spill over into urine when they build in the bloodstream.  When this happens, it begins to turn the blood acidic—making it a medical emergency.  Symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, rabid breathing, fruity smell to breath, weakness, and confusion.  Diabetic ketoacidosis is more likely to happen to people with type 1 diabetes, but it can occur in people with type 2 diabetes.  Risk factors for people with type 2 diabetes include age, race, and obesity.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine. Learn why patients from around the globe trust Executive Medicine of Texas to their health. Visit EMTexas.com that’s EMTexas.com.
