Severe Metabolic Acidosis as a Consequence of Acute Starvation in Pregnancy

Nikolaos Burbos et al. Arch Gynecol Obstet.

Abstract

Ketoacidosis is most often due to uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. Similar metabolic changes can occur with poor dietary intake of carbohydrates or prolonged fasting. Metabolic acidosis due to prolonged fasting is rarely described in the literature. We report a case of severe metabolic acidosis as a result of prolonged fasting in pregnancy.
