Dear customer,

With the symptoms that you have described you need to get to the hospital as soon as possible. This requires emergency management with rehydration and nutrition therapy as well as monitoring your blood glucose and electrolyte levels.

You are likely suffering from the complication of not taking your diabetes medication leading to a hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state which is now complicated with electrolyte disturbances.

Please don't try to manage this at home, and this will not get better with time, but this needs to be treated urgently.

Take care.
