Ketoacidosis (dka) Vs Ketosis What’s The Difference?

Although ketosis and ketoacidosis may sound the same, they are two distinct things. We are going to be talking about the difference between ketoacidosis and ketosis and what makes the two diverse from one another. In order to provide a good explanation of what these conditions are and how they affect the body, we must talk about their main common denominator, the ketones. These are organic compounds that the body will provide when it starts to burn stored fat instead of burning glucose or sugar when it requires energy. What is Ketoacidosis? DKA applies to diabetic ketoacidosis and is a complication of type 1 diabetes. Ketoacidosis is a very dangerous condition that makes it difficult for your body to be able to produce a good level of insulin. Your levels of ketones can rise to very dangerous levels, which will also increase your blood sugar. The ketones create a very acidic environment inside your body, and the function of certain organs will be affected severely. It becomes a life-threatening situation when presented with high levels of ketones and excess blood sugar. Anyone not given proper treatment for DKA could end up in a coma and even die. The kidneys and liver are affected Continue reading >>

    This topic is actually much simpler than it's made out to be, that being it is merely a question of quantity of ketone production, and is only an issue in an individual who is unable to produce insulin.
    Unfortunately this is often glossed over even in medical texts, so it's not uncommon for even doctors and nurses to misunderstand the simple yet crucial difference, not to mention nutritionists.
    In the end it's all a matter of volume. Kind of like the difference between a sip, a gulp, and drowning.
    A moderate carbohydrate diet will often result in occasional trace amounts of ketone levels in the blood, typically after a fast (first thing in the morning) or after a decent exercise session. A very low carbohydrate diet is ketogenic by nature due to both low levels of carbohydrates in circulation/storage and ingestion of high levels of fat, and will result in moderate levels of ketone bodies circulating, usually around quarter-to-half the concentration of blood glucose, but occasionally reaching or even exceeding parity.
    Proper starvation - as in complete caloric avoidance for a week or two - can result in ketone bodies up to double or even triple circulating glucose levels, but even then the body has plenty of feedback loops to maintain ketone levels that are still well within safe parameters, you'll do organ damage from other stressors before ketones become a problem. There is of course something called alcoholic ketoacidosis, but this requires extensive periods of time where near 100% of your calories are derived from ethanol.
    Point being, this has nothing to do with nutritional ketosis. If you are capable of producing insulin then there is no danger of acidosis, which is actually ridiculously elevated ketones AND glucose levels.
    Serum ketone body levels typically look like this:
    Normal diet: 0-0.1 mmol/L
    Normal diet overnight fasted: 0.1-0.5 mmol/L
    Ketogenic Diet: 0.6-3.0 mmol/L
    1-4 weeks starvation: 6-10 mmol/L
    Diabetic insulin deficiency: >20 mmol/L

    Ketoacidosis
    Nutritional ketosis is a normal, physiological response to carbohydrate and energy restriction. A ketogenic diet is an effective weight loss strategy for many. Ketoacidosis, on the other hand, is a pathological condition caused by insulin deficiency. The common theme is low insulin; however, in ketoacidosis, blood glucose levels are very high. Ketone levels are elevated in both states, although are 10-20x higher in ketoacidosis (~0.5-2 vs. > 20 mM). Nutritional ketosis and ketoacidosis should not be confused with one another, and a ketogenic diet doesn't cause ketoacidosis.
    ...
    In people on a ketogenic diet, blood glucose levels are not increased. This is an important aspect differentiating nutritional ketosis from ketoacidosis.
    ...
    Ketogenic dieting is safe, and can be beneficial. Ketoacidosis is pathological, and can be fatal.

The Difference Between Ketosis And Ketoacidosis

When you hear these two terms it’s easy to see how they can be confused. The confusion also stems from the fact that the two are both metabolic processes involving the breakdown of fats in the body (plus they look and sound like similar words). The truth is ketosis and ketoacidosis are two completely different things. Ketosis and the Ketogenic Diet Ketosis is a normal metabolic process in which the body has a high fat-burning rate. It is a healthy and natural state your body enters when your body is running on fat rather than glucose1. The state of ketosis occurs when ketone levels are raised in the blood due to the conversion of fats into fatty acids and ketones. This happens when the body runs out of carbohydrates – usually because a person hasn’t eaten in a while, for example during fasts, or they eat a very low-carbohydrate diet – leaving little sugar to convert into glycogen. Without glycogen, the body breaks down fat cells for energy. A low-carb, high fat diet, also known as a ketogenic diet, is necessary to enter and stay in ketosis long-term. When you eat a low-carbohydrate diet, your body enters the metabolic state of ketosis within 2 days but it can vary from pers Continue reading >>

    Hello everyone!
    Okay.. so this is probably a really stupid question... but what is the main difference between ketosis and starvation?
    Am I right in thinking that ketosis happens when you have an abundance of fat to burn (like me) and starvation is when the person doesn't have anything to burn left...
    Basically.. I want to be in ketosis and I've bought some sticks to test me later this week... but I don't want to 'starve'.... this is probably a really stupid question but I know lots of you are experts so please advise!
    Thank you! xxx

    Ketosis is the state your body goes into when your diet is low on carbs or has zero carbs. When the body is without any form of carbohydrate the liver produces ketones which is a form of carbohydrate. The liver converts fats and proteins into ketones, therefore going after the fat stores of the body for energy. That's why people in the state of ketosis lose so much fat so quickly.
    There are other advantages of being in the state of ketosis. You can eat lots of food and still lose weight - as long as you don't eat any carbohydrates. Only eat protein, vegetables (except potatoes and grains), nuts, seeds, natural oils such as olive and coconut.
    I eat 6 times a day, about 5 ounces of protein at every meal and a heaping plateful of vegetables with olive oil, raw walnuts etc. I'm about 10% body fat right now with lots of muscle.
    Starvation is when your body does not get food at regular intervals throughout the day and therefore conserves energy by storing whatever calories it gets as fat and uses its protein stores for energy instead - your muscle. So in starvation mode you will eventually burn fat if you are calorie deficient, but you will also lose muscle - which slows your metabolism down.
    Starvation is not a sustainable lifestyle but ketosis is. It's great to use the starvation method to get the weight off in a hurry, but as soon as you start eating again the weight is put on quickly.
    With Ketosis you can eat lots of food and stay lean, fit and full of energy. You just need to learn how to do it right

We have an amazon shop page where you can see all the products we use and recommend and if you buy there you pay the same price you anyways would, but we get a small commission from the purchase.) In this video we are going to talk about how you know that you are fat adapted or keto adapted. And what is the difference between ketosis and being fat-adapted. Im going to tell you about my personal experience about being on the keto diet for almost 3 months now. Being in ketosis means that you have between 0,5 to 3 level of blood ketones. You can be in ketosis but still not being fat adapted or keto adapted. If you fast for an extended time like you stop eating at 6 in the evening and you fast until the morning you will have a light for of ketosis, but it doesn't mean you are fat adapted. Fat adapted means that your body prefers using fat as the primary fuel source for the body. You can go back to eating carbs on a cheat day but then your body very fast will go back to burning fat again. There is a lot of confusion about what it means to be Keto adopted or fat adapted and that is simply because there isn't a scientific definition for what this is. The longer you are on a Ketogenic diet the better your body will feel and the better adjusted you will be. Think about it your whole life you have probably been on a sugar diet and it takes time until your body works out fully how to digest and process fat. I have read that it can actually take up to 6 months. Here are the symptoms that you are going to experience when you are keto adjusted. 1. Increased focus and awareness 2. Better energy levels 3. The non existence of carb cravings 4. Your appetite goes down a lot 5.Your body starts preferring the fatty foods and the ketogenic diet As I said that it happens on a gradient and the more you do the diet the more of these signs you will notice. I still had carb cravings for up to 2 months into the diet. The ketogenic diet is a long process and is a lifestyle change. But it will be more than worth it if you push through.

Ketosis Vs Keto-adapted

As you might know already, I started a Facebook group called Ketogenic Success as a positive, success-oriented community of like-minded folks who are on their own keto journey. Well, the group is growing every day (almost 15k members as of right now), which is awesome. Because the group is growing so fast, new folks will frequently ask the same questions. There’s nothing wrong with that. Asking questions is how we all learn and grow. So I wanted to take some time to address one of the most common questions we see in the group: What’s the difference between being in ketosis and being keto-adapted? It’s easy to see why this is such a confusing topic, and it’s not made easier by the common misconceptions (and just plain errors) that seem to abound. First, let’s address the subject of ketosis. Ketosis is a situation where your body is producing ketones. There are three ketone bodies: acetone, acetoacetate, and beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB). Ketones are produced hepatically (which is a fancy way of saying “by the liver”) as a product of breaking down fatty acids. But there’s a bit of a problem with this simple definition of ketosis. You see, your liver is constantly breakin Continue reading >>
