Answer: Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a possible complication of diabetes that can cause kidney damage and may prove fatal if left untreated. It is more common with Type 1 diabetes than with Type 2 diabetes, and many with Type 1 are experiencing DKA when first diagnosed with Type 1.

He was unresponsive, and in what I found out was DKA, Diabetic ketoacidosis. Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a state of absolute or relative insulin deficiency aggravated by ensuing hyperglycemia, dehydration, and acidosis-producing derangements in intermediary metabolism.
TYPE 1 SKILL SET [Acidosis, DKA] To pump or not to pump, that is the question
| TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012
The risk of DKA
(Diabetic Keto Acidosis
) goes up dramatically as if you are not getting insulin due to a blockage then there is no background insulin there to prevent DKA
(I personally have not had this happen mind you). Living with diabetes involves making a lot of decisions on a daily basis. Sooner or later, the decision to go on a pump enters the picture. MORE >>
DIABETES IN CONTROL [Acidosis, DKA] Hyperglycemic Emergencies
| THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2010
The two most serious hyperglycemic emergencies are diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA
) and hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state (HHS). DKA
most commonly occurs in patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus or pancreatic disease, while HHS occurs more frequently with Type 2 diabetes. Both DKA

is characterized by ketonemia, ketonuria, and metabolic acidosis
while HHS involves dehydration without significant ketoacidosis. MORE >>

RIDE TO REMEDY [Acidosis, DKA] A Previously Unwritten Letter – Dear Dead Worthless Pancreas
| FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007
I had been going to one before I landed myself in the hospital on the verge of death with DKA
so bad that the doctors didn’t know if they were going to be able to save me and after that event, the counselor thought I was suicidal, a lot of people thought I was suicidal but I wasn’t going to be treated for suicidal behavior because I wasn’t suicidal, I just didn’t want to have diabetes anymore and I didn’t think that there was anything wrong with that.
