I was in dka a few days ago. Got treatment and was sent home in about 24 hours. I feel ok and numbers have been pretty good. My mouth and throat hurt really bad though. Most when I swallow. I am thinking this is just from throwing up the bile/acid. If anyone has any advice on getting this to go away or how to combat the uncomfortableness that would be great.
They gave me protonics in the hospital, whatever that is. You might ask your doc if there is something similar. Stay hydrated though. I hope you getting to feeling better.
I would try marshmallow root or slippery elm (you can get them at most health food stores). You just make a tea out of them and sip it slowly throughout the day. It will coat your throat and stomach and sooth the dryness. I use it whenever I have a sore throat or cold.
Thank you for the suggestions. I will look into both of those.
Does an episode of DKA mess up your vision like the beginning the first time before you know its diabetes ? I couldn’t see right for months.
I am thinking antacids. does it feel like acid burn from throwing up or is it muscle soreness from the gagging ? Hope you are OK.
