Abstract

Electrolyte imbalances are common problem in critically ill patients. Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the diseases with increased frequency of electrolyte abnormalities which can be due to various factors most commonly due to impaired renal function, acid-base disorders, malabsorption syndromes or it can be due to multidrug regimens. This study included 40 subjects admitted in the intensive care units of SGRR Institute of Medical and Health Sciences to look at the clinical profile of dyselectrolytemia in diabetic patients admitted in ICU. Hyponatremia was the most common dyselectrolytemia. Most of the patients with renal failure had hypermagnesemia and hyperkalemia. Hypertension was the most common co-morbidity.
