Electrolyte disturbances are well-known consequences of the diabetic pathology. Less is known about the cumulative effects of repeated changes in glycaemia. We investigated the ionic profiles of patients with type 1 diabetes during consecutive hyper- and/or hypoglycaemic events using the glucose clamp.

Abstract

Electrolyte disturbances are well-known consequences of the diabetic pathology. However, less is known about the cumulative effects of repeated changes in glycaemia, a characteristic of diabetes, on the electrolyte balance. We therefore investigated the ionic profiles of patients with type 1 diabetes during consecutive hyper- and/or hypoglycaemic events using the glucose clamp.
