My next lament ... Anion Gap?
 
Urinary ... is 17 with Normal Limits 3 - 15?

Do I shake in my boots? Googling brings up "starvation, fasting," OR DKA ... I tried to search Ketosis, NOT DKA -- anyone know? I know we discussed it before.

Hee hee -- goooooooo Dr Eades! The Blog of Michael R. Eades, M.D. Ľ Iíll see your ketoacidosis and raise you a renal failure

Won't let me delete, but, um ... not relevant here.

My sleepy brain can't put together what you are asking. Yep, one does go onto ketosis when one is starving, be cause with the lack of outside food, one does burn one's own body fat, but as we do it, we aren't starving, just eating so few carbs we do burn body fat, which is the whole point. Does that put into perspective? If not, I guess I need my morning coffee!

My question is whether ketosis would cause a high anion gap value -- and not just ketoacidosis. I do not want to be "gone off on," about my diet, without some ammo, but am not finding any online ...

Would it help if I told you OWC scored 16 on his yesterday, but his lab states the "normal" range as 9 - 20? Exactly how does it help to have each lab setting their own numbers for "standard" range? :confused:

I know that you can't be in DKA without anion gap occurring.

Each lab runs its own standard or calibration curve, using a known quantity in serial dilution -- I know it is confusing, but it is how you know where a point might land, on the curve, for some tests.
