What Should I Do If Someone Experiences Diabetic Ketoacidosis At Work?

Control of high blood sugar is important to prevent complications caused by chronic hyperglycemia.

It is important to attend to hyperglycemia since it can lead to a dangerous complication known as ketoacidosis that can result in coma and even death.

Ketoacidosis rarely occurs in type 2 diabetes, typically occurring in type 1 diabetes.

Diabetic ketoacidosis develops when you dont have enough insulin in your body.When this happens glucose cant enter your cells for energy.

Your blood sugar level rises and your body begins to breakdown fat for energy.

This breakdown produces toxic acids known as ketones, leading to higher acidity of the blood.

Diabetic ketoacidosis requires urgent medical attention and, alongside hyperglycemia and its symptoms, is signaled by:

Nausea or vomiting

Abdominal pain

A fruity smell on the breath

Extreme Tiredness

Drowsiness or confusion



Loss of consciousness.
