31 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.[] 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.[] A few studies have investigated the use of end-tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2) as an acidosis parameter in cases of gastroenteritis and diabetic ketoacidosis.[]

  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis

    ketoacidosis can occur if you have type 2 diabetes.[] Following physical examination, there is often clinical evidence of dehydration such as decreased skin turgor and presence of a dry mouth.[] skin turgor ketone breath hypothermia peripheral cyanosis hypotension tachycardia reduced intra-ocular pressure confusion coma (severe cases) Investigations Management Don't[]

    It is often seen in diabetic ketoacidosis , where potassium is excessively lost in the urine.[] acute weight loss Oliguria Low bp Sunken eyes Dizziness Weakness Decreased skin turgor Concentrated urine 7. • Fluid Management • Oral rehydration therapy – Solutions[] , dry mucous membranes. poor skin turgor, confusion, restlessness agitation, decreased urine output treatment of ____is to replace water gradually, low salt diet, rehydrate[]

  • Rhabdomyolysis

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