Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Diabetic ketoacidosis is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones. The condition develops when the body can't produce enough insulin. Insulin normally plays a key role in helping sugar (glucose). Without enough insulin, your body begins to break down fat as fuel. This process produces a build-up of acids in the bloodstream called ketones, eventually leading to diabetic ketoacidosis if untreated. Diabetic ketoacidosis signs and symptoms often develop quickly, sometimes within 24 hours. For some, these signs and symptoms may be the first indication of having diabetes which are excessive thirst. frequent urination, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, weakness, confusion etc.
