There are many reasons why it would be necessary for an individual with diabetes to need IV therapy to manage their diabetes. IV therapy allows for needed medications to be infused directly into the blood system, minimizing the time that the body takes to metabolize a medication dosage. IV therapy ensures that medication reaches the blood stream quickly and effectively.
IV Therapy in Emergency Situations
In particular, emergency situations may call for IV therapy of insulin. In an emergency, IV therapy promotes the rapid administration of life-saving insulin to help regulate a diabetic's blood sugar levels fast. Left untreated, hyperglycemia can wreak havoc on all the body's systems including the cardiovascular, circulatory, renal systems and more. However, more immediate emergencies such as diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperglycemic hyperosmolar syndrome can occur.
Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) can develop when, over time, ketones build up in the body. DKA may lead to a diabetic coma or death. The warning signs for DKA are thirst or a dry mouth, frequent urination, high blood sugar levels and high ketones in the urine. Symptoms may then progress to more acute issues such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, difficulty breathing, a fruity odor on breath and confusion.
