Overcoming Shortness Of Breath In Diabetic Ketoacidosis?
.. whether the patient that the doctor told me had blood sugar reaching 800 was cured or not? do you mean still alive?
Good morning, thanks for asking on Alodoker. We apologize in advance for several reasons. First, on the HealthReplies.com site you are not paired with one regular doctor so when you create a new topic, you will not necessarily be answered by the same doctor. Second, we've opened your profile and we didn't find your previous question so we don't know what conversation you had earlier with one of our colleagues. Third, because this forum is free to be opened by anyone, maybe our doctor colleagues also cannot provide complete information about other patients we treat elsewhere because it is against medical ethics regarding patient confidentiality. Once again we apologize in advance.
Then regarding your father's condition, talking about whether there is a chance of recovery or recovery for patients who have diabetes complications in the form of diabetic ketoacidosis of course there is, although because we are talking about possibilities, there is also the possibility that the patient will not survive.
The size of this possibility will be influenced by the age of the patient, weights such as whether there are other abnormalities besides diabetes itself, the time span between the onset of complications and the patient being taken to the hospital, the facilities owned by the hospital and so on. Because this condition is a medical emergency, a little delay can make the patient enter a state of respiratory failure, and eventually die. But to be able to find out the cause of your father's death, the only one who can answer is the doctor who treated your father directly at that time.
We are sorry for the loss experienced by you and your family, but clearly, because there is a history of diabetes in your family, you and other family members must be more diligent in checking blood sugar levels and other health aspects, as well as adopting a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet, regularly. exercising and avoiding cigarette smoke is also stress. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
