An updated guideline for the management of DKA in children and young people is available, having been revised by the BSPED Special Interest Group in diabetic ketoacidosis following a series of meetings. The relatively limited evidence regarding the management of DKA has been reviewed. Where there is appropriate evidence these guidelines have been based on such evidence. For many aspects of the management of DKA the evidence base is limited and where there is limited evidence, consensus recommendations have been consolidated.
The DKA Flowchart and DSK Calculator are being updated in line with this reviewed guideline and will be available via the BSPED Guidelines web page in due course.
Thank you to all involved in this project.
