Dehydration is often treated by drinking lots of fluids. Your doctor might instruct you to drink more water, consume electrolyte drinks, or take oral rehydration solutions.
Ketoacidosis is a serious complication of diabetes that can occur when your body doesn’t have enough insulin to break down high levels of blood sugar. Because you cannot break down sugar for energy, the body uses fat instead, and causes high levels of ketones, the by-product of fat metabolism, to circulate in your system.
Reports indicate that fever is among the symptoms that present with DKA6, along with vomiting, increased urination, weakness, abdominal pain, and breathlessness. Because DKA is associated with increased sugar levels of greater than 300 mg/dl, it is a medical emergency and should be managed as such. Left untreated, it can be fatal.
Note that DKA or diabetic ketoacidosis mostly occurs in Type 1 diabetes patients, but may also occur in people with Type 2 DM during unusual physiologic stress.
