Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) is a life-threatening complication caused by insulin depletion. It is being increasingly linked with type 2 diabetes, especially among African Americans and Hispanics.

It is not clear, however, what causes total insulin depletion in victims of DKA. Since Insulin Resistance can lead to relative insulin insufficiency and hyperglycemia, better management of diabetes by increasing insulin sensitivity may reduce the risk of DKA, which can be caused in numerous ways.

Other triggers include alcohol abuse, physical injury, pulmonary embolism or a heart attack. (1)

In addition, severely low insulin levels can cause excessive amounts of glucose in the bloodstream, a condition called Hyperglycemia. The breakdown of fat in the body then accelerates and increases the production of fatty acids. These fatty acids are converted into chemicals called ketone bodies, which are toxic at high levels.

Symptoms and complications include the following:

Nausea and vomiting.

Breathing may be abnormally deep and rapid with frequent sighing.

Rapid heartbeat.

Other serious complications from DKA include aspiration pneumonia and adult respiratory distress syndrome.

Life-saving treatment involves rapid re-hydration using an intravenous saline solution followed by low-dose insulin and potassium replacement.

The Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System is a scientific breakthrough that could improve your health by increasing the insulin sensitivity of your cells. Greater sensitivity can result in a huge improvement in the efficient processing of glucose and insulin, which may reduce the amount of insulin you require to manage your Diabetes.

By lowering insulin intake and dependency through more effective management of your Diabetes, you are likely to experience better long-term health and a greater sense of well being. You may also reduce your risk as someone with Diabetes of developing such serious, insulin imbalance-linked complications as failing eyesight, kidney and heart disease and the need for amputation.

"I have been using the Insulite System for about 6 months. I have noticed that my eating habits seem to have transitioned very naturally.... no starvation or denial, I don't crave junk food or sweets anymore!! I have been able to lose about 20 pounds, slowly, safely, and permanently. This is a "for life" program and everyone that has a weight problem should try it!!"

"I have been on the Insulite System for approx 3 months. I have lost 33 lbs, my liver functions are normal and my A1C came back at 5.1, down from 8.03 months ago. I was taking 10 Glucovance pills daily, now I take only 2 pills in the AM. My blood sugar is normal, my energy is higher than it has been in years and I feel great. Insulite along with a change in my diet has changed my life.

I tell everyone that asks me what I have done to change my life, about the Insulite program. Your product is fantastic. I have cut out all sweets, flour, dairy and have no cravings."

"In less than 3 weeks I've started losing weight again after being "stuck" on Weight Watchers for about a year. I've lost about 4 lbs since starting Insulite but more significantly my blood pressure is well within normal limits now and I can tell my metabolism is better. I am not getting that slump between meals and am able to control between-meal snacking, and I have a lot of energy throughout the day rather than periods where I need to nap. I just ordered the 6 months supply. Thank you!"
