The clinical onset of ketoacidosis occurs over hours or days. Symptoms of uncontrolled diabetes are always present. Vomiting in Type 1 diabetic patients is always serious. Patients usually consult their doctors during the preceding days, but the presence of uncontrolled diabetes is frequently overlooked. Diabetic control should always be assessed if a diabetic patient becomes unwell for any reason. Many cases of ketoacidosis could be prevented. Insulin withdrawn Blood glucose Preventing ketoacidosis: sick day rules During any illness or infection the blood glucose concentration tends to increase and diabetic control deteriorates.

Occasionally it helps to record a reading around 3 am. Detecting and eliminating hypoglycaemia (see also chapter 8) Breakfast 7 8 Lunch 9 10 11 12 1 Dinner 2 3 4 5 6 Bedtime 7 8 9 10 11 12 1 Times for taking blood Measurement of blood glucose by patients themselves, or by their relatives, when hypoglycaemia is suspected is the only way of establishing whether or not the blood glucose is actually low. This is of particular value in the assessment of children during periods of bad behaviour, unconsciousness or convulsions.

A careful history may reveal slips which give the vital clue. For instance, one teenager developed profound hypoglycaemia two days after apparently “stopping insulin”; another, whose life was spent in and out of hospital with hypoglycaemia or ketoacidosis, claimed to be perfectly stable in-between, presenting a whole volume of negative urine tests. Even constant insulin infusion does not necessarily solve the problem, especially when the patient replaces the insulin in the syringe with water. When there is strong evidence of manipulation, try hinting at the possibility to the patient or their parents but without accusation.
