it is been for years now my husband was diagnosed with diabetes type 1 and recently he developed more serious symptoms such as persistent fatigue lately accompanied with nausea and vomiting including slow and hard breathing and extreme weakness and that is why my husband was suspected of having type 1 diabetic ketoacidosis so his blood test done this morning showed he has got this ketoacidosis complication and he is now hospitalized for he was dehydrated seriously and now he is actually on some urgent DKA treatment involving fluid replacement so I am actually curious what could have caused this type 1 diabetes ketoacidosis and what is the further treatment.

first your husband needs to get an urgent diabetic ketoacidosis treatment –fluid replacement is already in progress and it is probably due to the fact that your husband dehydrated completely and he was at high risk of falling in coma actually –maybe he just missed his regular insulin injection dose or maybe there is some other underlying cause involving some bacterial infection and if so than it is treated with antibiotics but the exact cause of your husband type 1 diabetes ketoacidosis would be determined after this urgent DKO treatment is performed. Anyway after having this fluid replacement treatment further treatment step in dealing with diabetic type 1 ketoacidosis is electrolyte replacement meaning that he needs to receive an extra amount of potassium, chloride and sodium because there are about to keep him healthy making his heart, nerves and muscles functioning properly and their amount may be significantly affected by the lack of the insulin –at least it was how my dad was explained for he also experienced this type 1 diabetes ketoacidosis condition due to the extreme drop of his sugar blood and all this for he missed having regular insulin shots, anyway this entire DKA treatment usually ends up with intravenous insulin therapy so that the cells can take the insulin as soon as possible.
