Diabetes and Blood pH

Post by gumshoes_15 » Wed Mar 15, 2006 7:38 pm

Why is blood pH more acidic in diabetes? And where else can urine contain glucose that is not from diabetic?

You mean in an unregulated diabetic? usually because of an excess in ketones.

And where else can urine contain glucose that is not from diabetic?


Pancreatic Insufficiency, Renal Glucosuria, with some adrenal, thyroid and ovarian diseases, excessive carb intake and really...any time your body consumes so much sugar that your blood levels exceed 170-250mg/dl.
