GH Spoilers – What Is Diabetic Ketoacidosis?
The General Hospital star had what is referred to as DKA or Diabetic Ketoacidosis. “Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious complication of type 1 diabetes and, much less commonly, of type 2 diabetes. DKA happens when your blood sugar is very high and acidic substances called ketones build up to dangerous levels in your body. Ketoacidosis shouldn’t be confused with ketosis, which is harmless.
The primary cause of DKA is absolute or relative insulin deficiency: Absolute – eg, previously undiagnosed type 1 diabetes mellitus.” There are five signs to look out for when it comes to Diabetic Ketoacidosis and awareness may save your child’s life. The child may be dehydrated and very thirsty. The child could need to go to the bathroom more than usual. The child may begin to lose weight for no reason. The child may suffer from exhaustion. The child may show flu-like symptoms, especially vomiting. Being aware of these things could save your child’s life.
