Why or how does IVF-RL lead to cerebral edema in DKA?

- RL doesn't cause Cerebral oedema - it is due prompt correction of hyperglycemia as result alter osmolality leads to shift of fluid from extracellular compartment to intracellular - So hypertonic solution Manitol correct it.

RL doesn't cause cerebral edema per se, hypoglycemia caused by over correction by insulin leads to cerebral edema.

Then y is RL Contraindicated in DKA sir? Instead of NS, RL also can be used no sir?
