Diabetic ketoacidosis is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones.

Marcel shared that it had been a ‘very hard few days’ and being rushed to hospital was the ‘worst’ moment of his life.

Scary: It comes after Marcel recently revealed that he nearly died after being rushed to A&E with COVID-19 symptoms, he has since discovered he has Type 1 diabetes and was unknowingly suffering with Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) 

The musician shared a video of himself hooked up to wires in a hospital bed as he candidly shared: ‘It’s been a very, very hard few days for me. Thursday was literally the worst day of my life. I nearly died.’

What is diabetic ketoacidosis?

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones.

DKA was first described in 1886 and, until the introduction of insulin therapy in the 1920s, it was almost universally fatal.

Today the risk of death with adequate and timely treatment is currently around one to four per cent.

Symptoms of a DKA episode include nausea and vomiting, pronounced thirst, excessive urine production and abdominal pain.

According to figures just four per cent of people with type 1 diabetes develop DKA each year.

Marcel then thanked fans for their prayers and blessings, he emotionally added: ‘Keep sending them my way because I need them, thank you so much, big love, Marce.’  

In June, it was reported that Marcel had been rushed to hospital amid fears he had  contracted COVID-19, which he has now discovered was actually Diabetic Ketoacidosis. 

The former Blazin’ Squad star was admitted to hospital after ‘violet vomiting and passing out’, according to OK!.

A source told the news outlet: ‘Marcel has been feeling unwell for a few days and didn’t have any energy. One day he vomited violently and then passed out.

‘He’s been admitted to hospital and has a fever and is still feeling weak. He’s been in hospital for two days and they’re still awaiting test results to rule out coronavirus.’

MailOnline contacted a representative of Marcel Somerville for comment at the time. 

Amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, the reality star has been spending his time in lockdown with his stunning girlfriend Rebecca.

While she did not publicly speak of her beau’s hospitalisation, Rebecca did take to her Instagram Stories to repost his most recent snap on the image-sharing platform, along with the caption: ‘Love you.’

Marcel and Rebecca celebrated their one-year anniversary in May, with the muscle-bound musician posting a touching tribute to his belle on social media.

‘Love you so much! We’ve had a mad year, if they only knew! But we’re here about to start the next 365 Let’s Go, I’m so ready.’

For her part, Rebecca uploaded an image of the pair posing for a selfie together in a car, as she stated: ‘Our First Ever Anniversary…

‘It’s been probably the hardest year ever but throughout it all you have been by me and held me up, when I almost lost myself God sent me you and I look at you as a blessing everyday..

‘Anniversary in quarantine but your still making every second special, since midnight actually…❤️ ready for the future my life @marcel_rockyb…❤️.’
