Diabetes symptoms: Experts warn of the ‘4Ts’ that indicate high blood sugar


Without a supply of insulin, the body begins to break down fat for energy, releasing a harmful byproduct of ketones in the process.

The warning signs of DKA include:

  • Needing to pee more than usual
  • Feeling very thirsty
  • Being sick
  • Tummy pain
  • Breath that smells fruity (like pear drop sweets, or nail varnish)
  • Deep or fast breathing
  • Feeling very tired or sleepy
  • Confusion
  • Passing out.

People concerned they have DKA are advised to visit their nearest A&E immediately.

This is because hospital treatment is required for DKA, which includes giving insulin intravenously, meaning insulin is inserted via a vein.
