Yes: If the hyperglycemia is high enough it can lead to diabetic coma. We call this hyperosmolar hyperglycemia coma or syndrome. Diabetes ketoacidosis coma is another form of diabetic coma but this one is caused by not having Insulin rather than the extreme hyperglycemia (which is just a sign for this coma). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hypovolemic shock: Hard to answer your question. In diabetic ketoacidosis, Insulin is absent/low, glucagon high, and you can have hypovolemic shock (along with high blood glu, ketones, acidosis, etc). If you have hypovolemic shock from something else (eg. Sepsis), many hormones react to the situation. A minor "imbalance" in insulin/glucagon may alter blood glucose but does not cause shock. ...Read more
