Diabetic ketoacidosis is frequently accompanied by hypertriglyceridemia due to increased hepatic influx of free fatty acids from adipose tissue. The hypertriglyceridemia in diabetic ketoacidosis is mainly due to lipoprotein lipase deficiency and secondly to insulin deficiency. The hypertriglyceridemia responds dramatically to administration of insulin. When triglycerides exceed 1,000 mg/dL, persons are at risk for acute pancreatitis. Because of the danger of acute pancreatitis, persons with severly elevated triglycerides (>2000 mg/dL) should be treated as a medical emergency. We reported a case of diabetic ketoacidosis and severe hypertriglyceridemia (11,929 mg/dL) accompanied by lipemia retinalis. (KOREAN CLINICAL DIABETES J 9:336-340, 2008)
Key Words: Diabetic ketoacidosis, Lipemia retinalis, Severe hypertriglyceridemia
