Diabetic ketoacidosis is an acute complication of diabetes mellitus that can be life-threatening if not treated properly. Once thought to occur only in patients with type 1 diabetes, diabetic ketoacidosis has been also observed in patients with type 2 diabetes under certain conditions. The basic underlying mechanism for diabetic ketoacidosis is insulin deficiency coupled with elevated levels of counter-regulatory hormones, such as glucagon, cortisol, catecholamines, and growth hormone.

Management of Diabetic Ketoacidosis in Adults: A Narrative Review
TLDR
Clinicians should be aware of the occurrence of DKA in patients prescribed sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitors, and discharge plans should include appropriate choice and dosing of insulin regimens and interventions to prevent recurrence ofDKA. Expand
Management of Diabetic Ketoacidosis in Special Populations.
TLDR
Clinicians need to recognize and manage euglycaemic DKA in patients prescribed sodium-glucose cotransporter inhibitors and provide recommendations on optimal patient care. Expand
Management of Diabetic Ketoacidosis
TLDR
Preventive measures should include patient education about diabetes mellitus, precipitating factors of diabetic ketoacidosis, signs and symptoms of early metabolic decompensation, rational insulin therapy during minor illness and appropriate timing of physician contact to help avoid this serious and sometimes fatal complication ofabetes mellitus. Expand
Diagnosis and Management of Diabetic Ketoacidosis in Adults
Hospital Physician March 2008 21 D iabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious and potentially life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus.1,2 It represents a state of insulin deficiency with aExpand
First Line Management of Adult Diabetic Ketoacidosis Patients
TLDR
Prompt first line management of DKA is the most critical stage to profoundly reduce morbidity and mortality rates of this potentially fatal crisis and it’s therefore crucial to follow the evidence-based guidelines and DKA protocol in the emergency department to expedite diagnosis, guide treatment, and improve continuity of care between theEmergency department and the ICU as well as improving the clinical outcomes of patients with DKA. Expand
Management of Diabetic Ketoacidosis in Patients with Diabetes Type I
TLDR
The various ways of approaching patients who suffer from type-one diabetes during ketoacidosis and keto-acidotic coma are evaluated, to understand the triggers and pathophysiology behind this condition, and explore ways to prevent them. Expand
Diabetic Ketoacidosis: A Review and Update
TLDR
By understanding DKA, including its pathogenesis, presentation, treatment, and prevention, admissions may be decreased and length of stay shortened, and the healthcare professional may be able to manage the hyperglycemic crises associated with diabetes. Expand
Management of diabetic ketoacidosis
TLDR
The treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis is discussed, with emphasis on the controversial aspect of initial fluid replacement therapy, and Stewart's model is used, as opposed to the “traditional” Henderson-Hasselbalch equation. Expand
Capillary β – Hydroxybuterate testing in patients with diabetic ketoacidosis
TLDR
It is suggested that β-Hydroxybuterate capillary measurement alone cannot be used as a possible end point evaluation for intravenous insulin therapy, and that a complex, time dependant association between pH and measured β Hydroxybuterate is suggested. Expand
Profile of diabetic ketoacidosis at the National Diabetes and Endocrine Center in Tripoli, Libya, 2015.
TLDR
Males and patients with a long duration of diabetes disease are more prone to develop DKA; however, admission of individuals with less serious illness, insulin omission, and infection may contribute to the development of DKA. Expand

Diagnosis and treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis and the hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state.
TLDR
Clinical diagnosis is based on the finding of dehydration along with high capillary glucose levels with or without ketones in the urine or plasma, which is confirmed by the blood pH, serum bicarbonate level and serum osmolality. Expand
The treatment and prevention of diabetic ketoacidosis in children and adolescents with type I diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
It is appropriate to begin to develop a national approach to eradicating DKA, and this would require widespread public and professional education programs aimed at detecting new-onset type I patients prior to the onset of DKA. Expand
Management of hyperglycemic crises in patients with diabetes.
TLDR
Treatment of patients with DKA and HHS uses significant health care resources, which increases health care costs. Expand
Diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperglycemic hyperosmolar nonketotic syndrome.
TLDR
The clinical management of diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperglycemic hyperosmolar nonketotic syndrome involves careful evaluation and correction of the metabolic and volume status of the patient, identification and treatment of precipitating and comorbid conditions, a smooth transition to a long-term treatment regimen, and a plan to prevent recurrence. Expand
Hyperglycemic crises in diabetes.
TLDR
This position statement will outline precipitating factors and recommendations for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of DKA and HHS based on a previous technical review and should be consulted for further information. Expand
The accuracy of clinical assessment of dehydration during diabetic ketoacidosis in childhood.
TLDR
The objective of this study was to examine the accuracy of the assessment of clinical dehydration in children with type 1 diabetes and diabetic ketoacidosis to find no comparable studies in either DKA or any other form of metabolic acidosis. Expand
Counterproductive effects of sodium bicarbonate in diabetic ketoacidosis.
TLDR
The data support that alkali therapy in DKA has nonsaltuary effects in the metabolism and plasma levels of ketones and unravels an effect of bicarbonate infusion that promotes a selective build up of AcAc in body fluids. Expand
Diabetes in Urban African-Americans. I. Cessation of Insulin Therapy Is the Major Precipitating Cause of Diabetic Ketoacidosis
TLDR
In urban African-American populations, up to two-thirds of the episodes of DKA may be preventable by improving patient education and access to care. Expand
Diabetic ketoacidosis: role of the kidney in the acid-base homeostasis re-evaluated.
TLDR
The present review will focus on the role of the kidney in the pathogenesis of the different patterns of electrolyte and acid-base composition observed on admission for and during recovery from DKA. Expand
A randomized study of phosphate therapy in the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis.
TLDR
It is concluded that phosphate therapy may accelerate regeneration of erythrocyte 2,3-DPG but in the relatively small number of patients studied it had no demonstrable influence on tissue oxygenation or clinical response to low dose insulin therapy of DKA. Expand
