Enhanced Recovery After Diabetic Ketoacidosis at Saint Barnabas Medical Center

What is DKA (Diabetic Ketoacidosis)?

DKA is a series of events that starts when the body does not have enough insulin for the present condition and leads to a serious imbalance in the blood. When there is not enough insulin, the body tries to make energy from other products. This changes your blood to be more acidic and your breathing can become more labored. You can also become severely dehydrated and possibly go into a coma.
