Do I need to worry about DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis) and Coronavirus?
Experience with diabetes has shown that when sick with a viral infection, people with diabetes do face an increased risk of diabetic ketoacidosis. This is significantly more common in Type 1 diabetes.
Furthermore due to challenges associated with fluid intake and electrolyte levels – both important in sepsis management – the complications can be significantly worse in diabetics suffering from ketoacidosis.
