Although predictably more common in patients with type 1 diabetes, it has been recognised in those with type 2 diabetes as well as gestational diabetes, especially with the use of corticosteroids for fetal lung maturity and β2-agonists for tocolysis.
Diabetes-related coma is mainly caused by an extremely high or low blood sugar level. One of these conditions is diabetes-related hyperosmolar syndrome. It happens in people with Type 2 diabetes. If you develop this condition: Your blood sugar could be as high as 600 mg/dL. Your urine won’t contain ketones usually.
In most medical contexts, the term diabetic coma refers to the diagnostical dilemma posed when a physician is confronted with an unconscious patient about whom nothing is known except that they have diabetes.
Diabetic coma results from hyperosmolar conditions. Neurological changes begin above levels of 320-330 mg/dL. Diabetic coma can occur due to either a hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state (HHS) or being in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Both involve a hyperosmolar state, but in HHS, glucose levels can exceed 1,000. In DKA, they are usually lower.
A diabetic coma can be a life-threatening emergency that occurs when an individual who has diabetes suffers from low blood glucose (hypoglycemia) or high blood glucose (hyperglycemia). Signs of a diabetic coma include an altered mental state, inability to speak, visual problems, drowsiness, weakness, headache, and restlessness.
