OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether rehydration of young patients with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) by use of a solution that contained 75 mmol/L of sodium would be associated with a decline in serum sodium concentrations. DESIGN We retrospectively studied 18 episodes of moderate to severe DKA (mean plasma bicarbonate concentration of 7.8 +/- 0.9 mmol/L) in 17 patients younger than 18 years of age who had been examined at the Mayo Clinic between 1986 and 1990. MATERIAL AND METHODS All patients had… CONTINUE READING
