Résumé
We herein present a case of a 20-year-old woman who suffered from type I diabetes mellitus and died from a diabetic ketoacidosis in a context of addiction to hyperglycemia. Diabetic ketoacidosis is a lethal complication of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, which can result from insulin therapy stoppage. This can occur voluntarily with suicidal intent or involuntarily due to treatment inaccessibility, forgotten injections, or material deficiency. A new possibility is investigated in our case study: hyperglycemia addiction. The patient was treated by insulin glargine and insulin aspartate. She regularly stopped insulin glargine injections seeking the asthenia sensation produced by hyperglycemia, keeping the insulin aspartate injections to treat the disabling symptom related to hyperketonemia.
