What Are The Main Differences Between Nutritional Ketosis, And Ketosis?

I believe these can be used interchangeably. Ketosis is ketosis - this term describes a metabolic state characterized by elevated level of ketone bodies in your blood and low blood glucose levels, induced either by consumption of exogenous ketones or medium-chain triglycerides that are quickly metabolized into ketones, or by starvation (or, at least, restriction of carbohydrates), which switches your body’s metabolic machinery to utilizing fat oxidation as the main source of energy (byproducts of fat oxidation in the absence of glucose are then metabolized further into ketone bodies that can be used as energy substrate by most tissues). “Nutritional ketosis” is more often used to describe a voluntary exercise of inducing ketosis through certain dietary practices (in other words, this is ketosis as a result of a specific nutrition). But, given that nutrition (or lack thereof) still remains a primary method of inducing ketosis (barring direct consumptino of ketone esters, etc.) - most of the time, any ketosis is nutritional ketosis.

    How does an infection affect blood sugar? I understand the disease process, however what is the true science behind it?




    1 Answer







    Any type of Infection causes a stress response in the body by increasing the amount of certain hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones work against the action of insulin so production of glucose increases, which results in high blood sugar levels.
    In a person who does not have diabetes, extra insulin is produced to counter these effects, but this is not possible for someone with diabetes.
    When your blood sugar is high, the white blood cells in your body are unable to “mop up” bacteria because they cannot move around at their normal speed and do not reach the infection site quickly enough to engulf and kill the bacteria.

    So in a diabetic person, hyperglycemia persists and it can lead to ketoacidosis during infection or any other type of stress.
