High potassium: Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) increases potassium (K) levels due to the acidosis (A) seen in DKA. A causes K to leave the cells and go into the blood. As DKA is treated, the A resolves, increasing the pH of the blood, so K goes back into the cells lowering the blood K level. ...Read more

Nope: Those are excellent numbers, even going to a little low. Diabetes is not a concern until your fasting glucose starts going over 100, and it isn't called diabetes until higher than that. A1c would also be much higher (6.5% or above is diabetes, 5.7-6.4% is increased risk, 4-5.6% is normal). Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's caused by an Insulin problem (too little or just not working well (resistance)) causing elevation in blood sugar. Diabetes insipidus is a water problem characterized by lots of urination and high sodium level. It's caused by an ADH (vasopressin) (antidiuretic hormone) problem (too little or just not working well). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
