UA: +glucose, +ketones, +protein
ESR: 82, CRP: 384

XR and MRI:
- In the absence of a ulcer at the 4th MTP joint, T1/STIR signal abnormality changes of the 4th proximal phalanx/metatarsal are nonspecific but osteomyelitis is considered less likely given presence of interspersed fat signal. Differential considerations include reactive changes, bony infarct, or stress related changes
Echo Read: No vegetations
Diagnosis: Euglycemic DKA 2/2 SGLT-2 inhibitor and Bacteremia 2/2 OM
Treatment: Admitted to MICU for insulin and D5 gtt. Pt received IVF. XR R foot c/w osteomyelitis, started on Vancomycin, Ceftriaxone, and Flagyl (narrowed after culture results). Endocrine was consulted for further insulin recs and recommended discontinuing SGLT inhibitor, resuming metformin, Ozempic, and Lantus.
