Diabetes coma treatment

Diabetes coma treatment is always based on the diagnosis of the cause of diabetes coma, whether coma happens due to high or low blood-sugar level.

Diabetes coma management during High blood-sugar

If the blood-sugar level is too high, then need:

  • Intravenous fluids to restore water (hydrate)
  • Electrolytes such as Potassium, sodium or phosphate supplements to help the cells function correctly
  • Insulin to help the tissues absorb glucose and bring back normal blood-glucose level
  • Treatment for any underlying infections

Diabetes coma management during Low blood-sugar

If your blood-sugar level is too low, then need:

  • Glucagon injection, which helps to raise the blood-sugar level quickly

Diabetic coma is relieved and the consciousness returns when blood sugar brought back to normal level.
