We present a thin malnourished cachectic young male with established T1DM who has multiple
previous presentations with DKA requiring ICU admissions. He is on a feeding jejunostomy tube for severe
gastroparesis and oesophageal stricture as a complication of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD).
He presented to our hospital ED with features of HHS. After initial resuscitation, he was admitted to
ICU for four days then transferred to the medical ward for another six days for stabilization of blood glucose
and endocrine team input.
On discharge home he had gained 5kg in weight with consistently stable blood glucose level.
