    Abstract

    Background: Clinical teaching for many years has been to assume that diabetic ketoacidosis is pathognomic of type 1 diabetes. However, this dogma is now increasingly questioned as increasing numbers of people are admitted with diabetic ketoacidosis without the typical features of autoimmune type 1 diabetes. Such individuals are increasingly diagnosed with ketosis-prone diabetes, a heterogenous syndrome where individuals present with diabetic ketoacidosis or unprovoked ketosis but are usually autoantibody negative and have no residual ß-cell function. Classification of ketosis-prone diabetes using the Aß system can aid in diagnosis and treatment decisions.
