Glaser N,et al. Clinical Feature and Diagnostic of diabetic Ketoacidosis in children and Adolescents. UpToDate Jan 2019.
Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus. It occurs at the time of diagnosis of type 1 diabetes in approximately one-third of children in the United States [1-5]. In children with established diabetes, DKA occurs at rates of 6 to 8 percent per year [6,7]. DKA can also occur in children with type 2 diabetes (and particularly in African American adolescents with obesity), although at lower rates than those observed in type 1 diabetes [8-15].
