Diabetes Ketoacidosis PPT Summary

  1. Diabetes Ketoacidosis (DKA) develops when the body cannot produce enough insulin and starts breaking down fats for energy, leading to the buildup of ketones.
  2. DKA is most commonly seen in people with type 1 diabetes, but it can also occur in people with type 2 diabetes.
  3. The symptoms of DKA include excessive thirst, frequent urination, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, confusion, and fruity-smelling breath.
  4. If left untreated, DKA can lead to severe dehydration, coma, and even death.
  5. DKA treatment involves closely monitoring blood glucose levels, hydration with fluids, insulin therapy, and electrolyte replacement.
  6. Prevention of DKA involves proper management of diabetes through regular monitoring of blood glucose levels, taking insulin as prescribed, and seeking medical attention if symptoms of DKA develop.
