April 21, 2015

Between 1998 and 2012, the incidence of diabetic ketoacidosis at the time of a type 1 diabetes diagnosis increased by 55% among youths in Colorado, according to recent study findings.

Arleta Rewers, MD, PhD, of the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora, and colleagues evaluated 3,439 youths diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at any medical facility if they were a Colorado resident and followed up at the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes in Denver between 1998 and 2012 to determine the incidence of diabetic ketoacidosis among them.
