Abstract

Diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic nonketotic coma are two of the most common acute complications of diabetes. The pathophysiologic changes that occur in both disease states represent an extreme example of the super-fasted state. The physiology of the fed and fasted state, evaluation, therapeutic issues, recommendations for therapy, immediate follow up care, and complications of therapy are reviewed for both syndromes.
