Abstract We analysed the clinical outcomes of using a standardised protocol in the management of diabetic ketoacidosis. Of 71 admissions, the protocol group (n= 35) had significantly shorter length of hospitalisation, shorter time to normalise bicarbonate, fewer incidence of hypokalaemia and hypoglycaemia compared with the control group (n= 36).
