Ketogenasis Review

por grace Jack (08/10/2019)

Diabetic ketogenic is a life-threatening condition and a major cause of morbidity and mortality in children with type I diabetes. The deficiency of insulin leads to metabolic decompensation, causing hyperglycemia and ketosis that resolves with the administration of insulin and fluids. However, an induced state of ketosis is the basis for the success of the KD, which is an effective therapy for children with refractory epilepsy. Roxana and colleagues reported the case of a 2-year-old girl who presented to the emergency department with 1-week history of decreased activity, polyuria, and decreased oral intake.
