Subcutaneous administration of glargine to diabetic patients receiving insulin infusion prevents rebound hyperglycemia.

Insulin substitution approach should be very conservative as it is expected that insulin resistance will improve with rehydration. Unlike the Ctises, they recommend that 0. Phosphate Despite whole-body phosphate deficits in DKA that average 1. This could be due to a combination of factors, including exogenous insulin injection en route to the hospital, antecedent food restriction 3940and inhibition of gluconeogenesis. Resolution of HHS is hyperglycemid with normal osmolality and regain of normal mental status.

Based on an annual average ofhospitalizations for DKA in the U. These regimens led to a steady reduction in glucose and ketone concentrations at a rate comparable to the higher insulin doses [ 9 — 11 ].

Hyperglycemic crises in adult patients with diabetes. Recently, one case report has shown that a patient with diagnosed acromegaly may present with DKA as the primary manifestation of the disease Qual Manag Health Care ; 6: Guisado R, Arieff Hyeprglycemic.

Sub-clinical cerebral oedema does not occur regularly during treatment for diabetic ketoacidosis. Burden of hospitalizations primarily due to uncontrolled diabetes. Hypoxemia may be related to the reduction in colloid osmotic pressure that leads to accumulation of water in lungs and decreased lung compliance.

A prospective randomized study in patients with pH between 6. Prophylactic use of heparin, if there is no gastrointestinal hemorrhage, should be considered. Paramount in this effort is improved education regarding sick day management, which includes the following:.

Mannitol infusion and mechanical ventilation are used gjidelines combat cerebral edema. However, in patients with potential complications of hypophosphatemia, including cardiac and skeletal muscle weakness, the use of phosphate may be considered Vomiting ad a common clinical manifestation in DKA and leads to a loss of hydrogen ions in gastric content and the development of metabolic alkalosis. The rate of decline of blood glucose concentration and the mean duration of treatment until correction of ketoacidosis were similar among patients treated with subcutaneous insulin analogs every 1 or 2 h or with intravenous regular insulin.

To assess the severity of sodium and water deficit, serum sodium may be corrected by adding 1. DKA can be classified as mild, moderate, or severe based on the severity of metabolic acidosis and the presence of altered mental status Pseudonormoglycemia in diabetic ketoacidosis with elevated triglycerides.
