So they say you pee alot. Most diabetics pee alot if they are not yet controled. And does DKA go away or does it stay forever if you don't go get it fixed? And how do they fix it anyway? Insulin? If so, than can't a diabetic that takes insulin just take a bit more?
    Its about hydration and high numbers, DKA is deadly especially for a type 1. Ketosis is different then being in DKA they should not be confused with each other. DKA cant stay forever it has to be treated and a hospital is the best place for it to be taken care of.

    If you are eating a ketogenic diet, your bgs should be low. DKA is when you don't have enough insulin on board ( natural or injected) and your bgs go very high 400+. If you are eating low carb and bgs are within normal ranges and you produce ketones it means you are burning fat for energy.
