Common emergencies encountered in diabetics are important due to both their frequency and that they’re often life-threatening. The complications include 1) diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA); 2) hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state (HHS); 3) hyperglycemia without obvious acidosis; 4) hypoglycemia; and 5) other selected medical emergencies in diabetes.
