Cetoacidosis

Cetoacidosis

La cetoacidosis es una enfermedad que puede afectar a personas con diabetes. Se manifiesta cuando el cuerpo utiliza la grasa en lugar de la glucosa como fuente de energía. Cuando la grasa se descompone, se producen sustancias químicas denominadas “cetonas”. Éstas aparecen en la sangre y la orina de las personas. Si el nivel de cetonas es elevado, la sangre se torna más ácida.

Los síntomas de la cetoacidosis incluyen náuseas, vómitos, dolor en el vientre, respiración acelerada y, en casos graves, inconsciencia. Las personas que padecen de cetoacidosis deben recibir tratamiento médico de emergencia.
