Objectives: The aims of this study were assessing the frequency of clinical characteristics of patients with severe Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) who were admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) and investigating the relationship between paraclinical (glucose, anion gap, and serum bicarbonate) and clinical parameters in patients with severe DKA.
DKA was diagnosed when blood sugar at admission was >200mg/dl with acidosis (pH <7.
Forty-two patients (31%) had DKA at the time of first presentation to the hospital.
Other causes of morbidity and mortality in DKA include hypoglycaemia, infections, pulmonary oedema, central nervous system haemorrhage or thrombosis, other large vessel thromboses, cardiac arrhythmias caused by electrolyte disturbances, pancreatitis, renal failure and intestinal necrosis.
Frequencies of variables like gender, duration of diabetes, history of DKA, school abstinence etc.
10) Fulminant type 1 diabetes is a clinical subtype of T1DM characterized by rapid onset of hyperglycemic symptoms, DKA at the time of diagnosis, and a fasting serum C-peptide level < 0.
Individuals who had been managed at some point with diet or an oral antidiabetic drug and with no prior history of DKA were classified as type 2 DM.
Development of a DKA Protocol through Multidisciplinary Collaboration
She and her associates conducted a pilot study examining advanced MRI metrics and cognitive measures 72 hours after resolution of DKA in 10 patients with a first episode of DKA and 11 patients with three or more episodes of DKA.
