FisherMD 1. The evolution of HHS is over several days to weeks, and the most common presentation hyperglyecmic altered mental status [ 4748 ]. Patients with DKA and HHS should be treated with continuous intravenous insulin until the hyperglycemic crisis is resolved. Elvira O GosmanovaM.

The ADA guidelines also suggest that mental status be used to grade severity. Diabetes Metab Rev ; 3: Decompensated diabetes imposes a heavy burden in terms of economics and patient outcomes.

MilesMD, 3 and Joseph N. There are also case reports of patients with DKA as the primary manifestation of acromegaly The clinical presentation in such cases is acute as in classical type 1 diabetes ; however, after a short period of insulin therapy, prolonged remission is often possible, with eventual cessation of insulin treatment and maintenance of glycemic control with diet or oral antihyperglycemic agents.
