Worsening diabetic symptoms
Thirst, increased urine output, fatigue, urine output are significantly more than usual while no obvious polyphagia.
Loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, and vomiting may also occur after drinking water.
When acidosis occur, breathing is deep and fast. Due to paralysis and muscle weakness of the respiratory center, breathing gradually turns slow. The exhaled gas of some people with diabetes smells like rotten apples.
If the amount of dehydration exceeds 5% of body weight, such symptoms as decreased urine output, eye subsidence and dry skin will occur. Once the amount of dehydration exceeds 15% of body weight, people with diabetes will develop circulatory failure, quickened heart rate, decreased blood pressure and peripheral coldness due to reduced blood volume. In this case, people with diabetes must be actively sent to hospital for treatment.
In the early period, this situation is manifested as lack of energy, dizziness, headache, and then irritability or drowsiness, gradually turning into drowsiness. A variety of reflexes are late or loss of feeling occurs, and finally people with diabetes are in a coma-this is very terrible.
Extensive and violet abdominal pains, abdominal muscle tension and occasional rebound tenderness are often misdiagnosed as acute abdomen, etc., which is more common in children.
When the above symptoms occur, people with diabetes should pay attention to them and conduct a more detailed examination so as not to delay treatment. When diabetic ketoacidosis occurs, patients’ blood glucose levels are mostly 16-30mol/L.
