of Type 1 Diabetes
Shortness of Breath
Metabolic acidosis (increased anion gap)
Serum bicarbonate <10 mmol/L
Arterial pH 6.8-7.3
Osmolality (300-320 mOsml/mL)

Elevated BUN and serum creatinine
Serum potassium mildly elevated
Secondary to Pneumonia
- Young adult, 21 y.o
- Signs of volume depletion: dehydrated,
cold clammy skin
- Metabolic acidosis
