Health Status Outcomes for Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions: Diabetes Hospitalization Among Adults

Health Status Outcomes

ACS conditions develop quickly and may become life-threatening in a short period of time. The most common type of diabetes-related ACS condition is ketoacidosis, a critical situation that occurs when the body's insulin supply is depleted. This condition is generally confined to type 1 patients (type 2 patients generally produce at least a small amount of insulin). If not treated promptly, ketoacidosis can lead to severe complications and death.
