 What Are the Possible Complications of Diabetes?
Acidity is manifested or noted by chemistry (biochemically) and by labored breathing (Kussmaul, or heavy and labored respirations).
Kussmaul respiration is the body’s attempt to break down and blow off some of the acid in the system (carbon dioxide and its earlier form, carbonic acid).
Diabetic ketoacidosis is treated with intravenous fluids (to dilute the glucose levels in the system and rehydrate the dehydrated person), with insulin (to aid in helping glucose get into the cells), and with chemicals called electrolytes (usually potassium, sodium, phosphates, and bicarbonates).
