Is diabetic ketoacidosis serious?

Untreated, diabetic ketoacidosis can be life-threatening. If symptoms occur, it is important for people with diabetes to seek medical advice immediately. It can also be one of the first signs of type 1 diabetes, particularly in children, so if symptoms occur, it is also important to seek advice, even if the person has not been diagnosed with diabetes.
