Hi Mandy,

NICE has not guided us on management of DKA in pregnancy. However, diabetologist managed DKA as any diabetic women.. I will post a copy of the DKA guidelines in the Document section.

In respect to fasting in established labour - all high risk women diabetic wormen will commence sliding scale when in established labour and when nil by mouth, 10percent Dextrose side drip will also be used. Again refer to the Barts and the London guidelines on the Document section.
