Ketosis Vs. Ketoacidosis: What You Should Know

Despite the similarity in name, ketosis and ketoacidosis are two different things. Ketoacidosis refers to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and is a complication of type 1 diabetes mellitus. It’s a life-threatening condition resulting from dangerously high levels of ketones and blood sugar. This combination makes your blood too acidic, which can change the normal functioning of internal organs like your liver and kidneys. It’s critical that you get prompt treatment. DKA can occur very quickly. It may develop in less than 24 hours. It mostly occurs in people with type 1 diabetes whose bodies do not produce any insulin. Several things can lead to DKA, including illness, improper diet, or not taking an adequate dose of insulin. DKA can also occur in individuals with type 2 diabetes who have little or no insulin production. Ketosis is the presence of ketones. It’s not harmful.

    I've been doing keto again since Thursday. I feel like I'm in ketosis, but my ketostix are showing negative. They're left over from a couple years ago, but they've sat in a sealed container since then. Am I wrong or are the ketostix expired?

    The pack I bought had an expiry date of about 2 years after I got them. Expiry dates tend to be underestimated by manufacturers to be on the safe side. If they were kept dry/sealed and not subjected to any very hot or cold temperatures they should still work. They aren't very expensive though, maybe buy another pack to be sure.
