Diabetic ketoacidosis

Diabetic ketoacidosis is a life-threatening condition that develops when cells in the body are unable to get the glucose they need for energy because there is not enough insulin. When the sugar cannot get into the cells, it stays in the blood. The kidneys filter some of the sugar from the blood and remove it from the body through urine. Because the cells cannot receive sugar for energy, the body begins to break down fat and muscle for energy. When this happens, ketones, or fatty acids, are produced and enter the bloodstream, causing the chemical imbalance metabolic acidosis called diabetic ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis can be caused by not getting enough insulin, having a severe infection or other illness, becoming severely dehydrated, or some combination of these things. It can occur in people who have little or no insulin in their bodies mostly people with type 1 diabetes but it can happen with type 2 diabetes, especially children when their blood sugar levels are high.
