If the patient shows signs of ketoacidosis, you should immediately seek medical help. This condition can result in a diabetic coma.
Indicators of diabetic ketoacidosis:
You need to take emergency measures: to conduct medication, restore the level of insulin and water exchange (since a lot of fluid is released from the body at this time and dehydration may occur). If the patient is not treated, his condition will quickly deteriorate.
- Currently, 5-8 % of diabetic coma cases (even in developed countries, such as the United States of America) are fatal. Unfortunately, the statistics in Russia are even worse.
If a person suspects that they have the slightest signs of diabetes, they should immediately rush to the doctor to undergo a very simple examination. You need to take a blood sugar test, and very soon it will become clear whether this alarm is false or not. You should not make yourself lose consciousness.
