Overview Of Ketosis In Cattle

(Acetonemia, Ketonemia) By Thomas H.

It typically occurs in dairy cows in early lactation and is most consistently characterized by partial anorexia and depression. Rarely, it occurs in cattle in late gestation, at which time it resembles pregnancy toxemia of ewes (see Pregnancy Toxemia in Ewes and Does). In addition to inappetence, signs of nervous dysfunction, including pica, abnormal licking, incoordination and abnormal gait, bellowing, and aggression, are occasionally seen. The condition is worldwide in distribution but is most common where dairy cows are bred and managed for high production. Etiology and Pathogenesis: The pathogenesis of bovine ketosis is incompletely understood, but it requires the combination of intense adipose mobilization and a high glucose demand.

    Ketosis in less than 12 hours...

    (i searched for other threads but couldn't find anyone getting into ketosis this fast)
    According to my ketostix...is this okay? Got the same results after 5-6 different ketostix from two different new bottles throughout last night. Started yesterday morning, went to work(office job) came home and used a couple ketostix 12 hours later, positive. I'm sure I don't have diabetes.
    I've been on keto before around 8 months ago for about 2 months, but have been eating carbs and getting fat ever since. During work I ate mostly just almonds and sweat a little just because i had a sweater on. I felt a mild headache, and it feels like I'm in ketosis from my past experience.
    more info: 185 pounds, about 20% bf, ate normal keto foods, didn't workout that day yet, on p90x workout though.
    girlfriend is apparently in ketosis already too(her first time trying). she's 100 pounds and doing p90x too. same foods.
