Diabetic ketoacidosis is a life-threatening complication of diabetes, which results from a high level of ketones in the blood. In diabetic patients, as the body does not produce enough insulin to metabolize glucose, which is a major source of energy, the body breaks down fat as fuel. This process leads to the buildup of ketones in the blood, which when left untreated, can lead to diabetic ketoacidosis. The symptoms include fruity breath, excessive thirst, nausea, vomiting, frequent urination, shortness of breath, stomach pain, and confusion. Diabetic ketoacidosis is treated with fluid and electrolyte replacement and intravenous Insulin.
