The Prognosis of Children Diabetes and Common Symptoms
Three stage of children diabetes Acute metabolic disorder period, during this period, the patient is treated completely by insulin injection. After this stage, patient’s high blood sugar level can be controlled; urine sugar level become negative; and all external symptoms become alleviated. And, insulin dosage will gradually be reduced based on patient’s symptom alleviation. This process may last for several weeks to months. And then, some time later, patient’s need for insulin increase again. This stage is when patient’s illness condition progressing to stability. Several months later, the patient’s needs for insulin become stable. And, insulin injection commonly can be conducted by family member under doctor’s instruction.

And the patient’s illness condition becomes stable again.
DKA Diabetic Ketoacidosis
DKA (Diabetic Ketoacidosis)is a common symptom of Diabetes. High blood sugar level also indicates poorly usage of sugar in cellular metabolic activity. So, lipid will be dissolved to provide energy. Insufficient metabolism of lipid gives rise to ketone accumulation within the blood. Ketone is acidic material, so the whole blood PH value decreases and become more acidic, with metabolic acidosis being the final result. Hyperkalemia and Hypokalemia Acidosis is commonly accompanied with hyperkalemia, and during the rectifying treatment of acidosis, H+ will be transferred from inside of cells to outside, and on the contrary, K+ will be transferred from outside to inside of cells. And gradually, Hyperkalemia will be alleviated. However, in some cases, Diabetic patient’s blood potassium concentration is low due to osmotic diuresis or diarrhea and so on. For these patients, potassium should be replenished to avoid Hypokalemia which could be fatal to the patient.
