What Is Ketosis And Is It Harmful?

Ketosis in itself isn't harmful. It's a normal process that your body goes through to provide your cells with energy. Normally, your body relies on glucose as fuel. When it's store of sugar is used up however, it begins to use fat. It breaks the fat down into ketones, an alternate energy source that your cells can use. This metabolic state is known as ketosis. This is perfectly fine, and even healthy say, for people who are trying to lose weight, or if you miss a few meals and aren't fond of passing out. When people mention it in a negative way, they're usually talking about ketoacidosis. In people who have untreated diabetes, their cells aren't able to absorb the glucose in their bloodstream due to a lack of insulin. To compensate, their bodies start using fat as fuel (ketosis). Because a source of glucose never becomes available, this goes on unregulated. As the level of ketones in the bloodstream rises, the pH of their blood drops or becomes more acidic ( hence, why it's called ketoacidosis). This is significant because blood pH needs to stay within a narrow margin (between 7.35 and 7.45). A change in pH that falls outside of it can cause serious health issues and death. ketosis Continue reading >>

    So basically the moral of the story is that your breath is a combination of what you just ate and internal sources. These include
    Things that get into blood (eg onion or alcohol and th)

    Bacteria in your mouth.

    The morning breath thing comes mostly from bacteria on the tongue, which is why you can buy a tongue brush as well as a toothbrush.
