Professor Dhatariya, who tops the list in the UK and Europe, said: "I am hugely honoured to be featured on this power list of leading DKA experts. Through years of research, dedication and hard work we have learnt so much about the condition, but there are still so many things that we need to understand."
DKA develops when the body produces high levels of acid in the blood.
He said: "It's a serious problem so it's imperative that health care teams are aware of the symptoms before serious damage is done."
The professor is also president of diabetes and endocrine at the Royal Society of Medicine.
