We determined the incidence of diabetic ketoacidosis in Wales using nationwide hospital discharge data. Ketoacidosis admission rate was 24 per 100,000 person years and increased progressively from 1999 to 2010. The highest incidence was seen in 10-29 year olds, highlighting the need for targeted prevention in this age-group.
