50 Possible Causes for Decreased Skin Turgor, Diabetic Ketoacidosis

  • Dehydration

    Currently, a history of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is an exclusion criterion for genetic testing for MODY.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include: thirst, restless or irritable behaviour, decreased skin turgor, dry mucous membranes, sunken eyes, sunken fontanelle (in infants), and absence of tears when[rehydrate.org] A decrease in skin turgor is a late sign of dehydration. Causes You can become dehydrated if you lose too much fluid, do not drink enough water or fluids, or both.[mountsinai.org]

  • Rhabdomyolysis

    Low sodium levels may occur due to polydipsia (excessive intake of water), while low phosphate level may occur due to diabetic ketoacidosis.[medindia.net] Physical examination may reveal signs of dehydration, such as decreased skin turgor, delayed capillary refill and dry mucous membranes.[news-medical.net] ketoacidosis) Idiopathic Alcohol is commonly associated with rhabdomyolysis.[academic.oup.com]
