Lisa discusses the clinical features and management of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) with Dr. Matt Zitner, UCSF pediatric intensivist. The diagnosis of DKA is based on the presence of hyperglycemia, ketosis, and acidosis. Children with DKA commonly present with dehydration, tachycardia, polydipsia, and polyuria, as well as non-specific findings such as decreased activity and abdominal pain. The two main goals of treatment are to fix the underlying hypoinsulinemia and to address the complications of DKA, namely dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities.
