Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a life-threatening problem that affects mostly Type 1 diabetics and also Type 2 diabetics. It can result in hospitalization, coma and death. DKA occurs when the body cannot use glucose as a source of fuel due to inadequate insulin or none at all. As a result, the body uses fat to produce energy. However, in the process of breaking down fat, blood acids known as ketones are produced and accumulate in our body leading to ketone poisoning or Diabetic ketoacidosis.
