Abstract

Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) has high morbidity and mortality and can be prevented. It is extremely important to give clear guidance to patients and families on how to manage diabetes during intercurrent illnesses to avoid complications of ketoacidosis, dehydration,uncontrolled or symptomatic hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia. This descriptive review of clinical cases and management guidelines for sick days in children and adolescents with diabetes is provided as a resource for physicians who may take calls from parents of sick children with diabetes or manage these children in a clinic, emergency room or hospital setting.
