    By Mayo Clinic staff
    Diabetic ketoacidosis signs and symptoms often develop quickly, sometimes within 24 hours. You may notice:
    Excessive thirst
    Frequent urination
    Nausea and vomiting
    Abdominal pain
    Loss of appetite
    Weakness or fatigue
    Shortness of breath
    Fruity-scented breath

    More specific signs of diabetic ketoacidosis — which can be detected through home blood and urine testing kits — include:
    High blood sugar level
    High ketone level in your urine

    When to see a doctor
    Signs and symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis may mimic those of the flu, so it can be tricky to know whether you have a viral infection or a more serious health problem. If you feel ill or stressed, or you’ve had a recent illness or injury, check your blood sugar level often. You might also try an over-the-counter urine ketones testing kit.

    Contact your doctor immediately if:
    You’re vomiting and unable to tolerate any food or liquid
    Your blood sugar level is higher than your target range and doesn’t respond to home treatment
    Your urine ketone level is moderate or high

    Seek emergency care if:
    Your blood sugar level is consistently higher than 300 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL), or 16.7 millimoles per liter (mmol/L)
    You have excess ketones in your urine and can’t reach your doctor for advice
    You have multiple signs and symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis — excessive thirst or urination, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, fruity-scented breath, confusion

    Remember, untreated diabetic ketoacidosis can be fatal.

    Take care
