Dr Ashima Badyal, Dr Sanjeev Kumar

Abstract :

Diabetic ketoacidosis is one of the most common endocrinal emergency in the world. phosphorous depletion occurs in DKA owing trans–cellular shift and hyperphosphaturia. This study was undertaken to find out serum phosphorous in DKA as a prognostic indicator to assess the mortality and morbidity and determine the outcome.60 consecutive diabetic patients presenting with clinical and biochemical features of DKA admitted in emergency of GMC Jammu from August to November 2018were studied. in the study phosphorous levels at the time of admission can be used as a prognostic indicator in diabetic ketoacidosis Conclusion high blood sugar is associated with low phosphate value. Low phosphate value was associated with prolonged hospital stay
