Diabetes and the complications of diabetic ketoacidosis are very closely connected. Diabetes mellitus or DKA is a condition that causes the pancreas to produce excessive amounts of insulin to compensate for the glucose being used by the body. When this happens, the body can no longer break down the sugar that you eat and it accumulates in the blood as ketone salts. This condition is also known as ketosis, ketoacidosis.
Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a severe complication of diabetes, which occurs when the body produces excessive amounts of ketones called ketones. Excessive thirst, frequent urination. Nausea and vomiting often accompany this condition. The kidneys usually fail to remove excess fluid from the blood and urine becomes crystallized and deposits in tissues. Diabetic ketoacidosis occurs if insulin is used excessively or for too long a period of time. People who are overweight may also be at risk of developing diabetic ketoacidosis.
Diabetes mellitus, especially diabetes type 2, has become one of the leading causes of death worldwide. It is caused when the body's organs do not respond to the body's insulin, causing the pancreas to release excessive amounts of insulin. There are three different types of diabetes - juvenile onset diabetes (juvenile diabetes insipidus), adult-onset diabetes (adult-onset diabetes insipidus), and gestational diabetes insipidus. The first type is the most common, occurring in childhood. Juvenile-onset diabetes insipidus occurs when the body is not able to make sufficient insulin in the liver. Adult-onset diabetes insipidus occurs when the body is unable to make sufficient insulin in the liver when insulin is still being produced by the pancreas. Gestational diabetes insipidus is usually caused by a lack of insulin in the mother's bloodstream.
