Study on the causes, signs, and therapies of diabetic ketoacidosis.

Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) is a severe metabolic complication primarily affecting individuals with type 1 diabetes but can also occur in those with type 2 diabetes. It results from insulin deficiency, leading to increased ketone production, metabolic acidosis, and potential life-threatening complications. This article provides a comprehensive overview of the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of DKA. Early recognition and prompt management are crucial to prevent adverse outcomes. Education on diabetes self-management and prevention strategies plays a vital role in reducing the incidence and severity of DKA. Timely intervention and adherence to prescribed therapies are key to ensuring better outcomes for individuals at risk of DKA.
