Good afternoon! There are international studies, presented in scientific medical resources, on the ability of arginine, a component of Betargyne, to increase insulin secretion and sensitivity of peripheral tissues to insulin. The other component of Betargin, betaine, helps to reduce insulin resistance, as well as to increase the production of adiponectin, which reduces the production of glucose. Due to these mechanisms, the patient may be experiencing the above effects. In case of acetonemic syndrome, Betargin promotes rapid inactivation and removal of ketone bodies from the body, detoxification, improved supply of all tissues with acid, production of energy molecules and renewal of metabolism processes. Prophylaxis of acetonemic syndrome does not guarantee its appearance, as a number of factors influence it. But at the first signs of it is necessary to begin quickly and REGULARLY during the day to feed the child (even a few times at night) and thus do not allow the process to intensify and immediately reduce intoxication. Be well!
