The Relationship Between Blood Glucose and Serum Electrolytes in During Presence of Metabolic Acidosis in Children with Acute Gastroenteritis
In order to investigated the relationship between simultaneous serum electrolyte and blood glucose levels, 42 moderately or severely dehydrated patients with acute gastroenteritis were included in the study. The cases' ages were under two years (mean 7.60±5.19 months). 38.1% of the patients were females and remained were males. A positive correlation was found between blood glucose and serum sodium (Na+) levels in the children with serum bicarbonate values 15 mmol/L (p
