Diabetic Ketoacidosis Causes


Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) is life-threatening. It is seen in the people with little or no insulin i.e., high blood sugar level. When there is insufficiency of insulin, the metabolism of carbohydrate stops. In order to get glucose, hormones like glucagone, adrenaline causes fat depots to break down. The fatty acids are converted into glucose by releasing ketone via the process of beta oxidation. The most common reasons that cause the diabetic patients to enter a state of Diabetic Ketoacidosis are as follows:

  • Infection (40%)
  • Missed insulin (25%)
  • Newly diagnosed or previously unknown diabetes (15%)
  • Other causes like heart attack, stroke trauma, stress, and surgery
  • Unidentified cause 5-10%
