Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) is a complication of diabetes that occurs when it gets out of control. This condition requires hospitalization and can be deadly. In DKA the body is flooded with excessive ketones. In ketoacidosis urine ketone levels are often above 10mmol/L, however in anything greater than 5mmol/L can start to be dangerous for diabetics at risk of DKA.

How can I induce ketosis quickly


I bought this product about a month ago and was surprised by their promotion on the bottle cap for a free bottle. All I had to do was send them a text message (with the number provided) and proof my purchase. Easy right? Not quite. The person writing me back said that I must leave a review with the “Exact” title of the review. I told the individual that I wasn’t done with the product and needed sufficient time in order to give my honest opinion and that nowhere on this promotion does it specify that I must leave a review to receive a free bottle. After asking them to honor their promotion they suddenly fell on deaf ears and completely ignored me.
Using fat for fuel is often used interchangeably with using ketones, but this is not exactly the same thing. Even when you are eating a lot of carbs in your diet, you can still use fat (and do quite frequently!) as a source of energy without needing to go into ketosis. The type of fat you are using for this is primarily coming from stored fat (fatty acids). Stored fat is actually a preferred source of energy in-between meals, during rest, and after long duration exercise.  Your body has an almost unlimited capacity to store and use fat compared to carbs, as we’ve seen with the obesity epidemic. And using fat gives you twice as much energy for the same amount of work (one gram of fat is 9 calories whether you eat it or burn it, compared to carbs that provide only 4 calorie a gram) – making it a desirable source of fuel.
Without carbs, your body has to find other ways to get glucose or find some other usable form of energy that is efficient and able to supply your brain with fuel. Your storage capacity of glucose is limited, and you can become carb depleted fairly quickly. When this happens, your body starts to use dietary protein or stored protein (aka your muscles) as well as lipids to create glucose through a process called gluconeogenesis.
