Ketosis Vs. Ketoacidosis (dka): What Is The Difference?

Let’s break it down so that you can understand exactly what ketosis is and how it differs from ketoacidosis. But the states they refer to are nothing alike.

    Ketosis Versus Ketoacidosis

    Since much discussion has come up lately concerning Dr. Fung, Intermittent Fasting, and ketosis…I thought it would be timely to share this article I found explaining the difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis.
    New diabetics and even a few old hands seem to sometimes confuse these two things…even some doctors do!!
    Ketosis is safe, ketoacidosis can be a life-threatening condition. I might add that DKA, diabetic ketoacidosis happens much more frequently in Type 1 rather than Type 2 diabetics. Usually, you also need to have high BG readings to develop ketoacidosis, as I understand it.
    Anyway, my clinical knowledge is limited, and I certainly am not qualified to give medical advice, so I will just present the article as is.
