Ketoacidosis Vs. Ketosis: What's The Difference?

You may have heard the term "keto" or ketogenic floating around. So what exactly is ketoacidosis, ketosis and ketones? Here, we break it down for you. "Keto" is derived from the word ketone, a specific class of organic compounds in your body that are produced when your body burns fat instead of carbohydrates. Your body prefers to burn carbohydrates (glucose) for energy. However, if there is not enough glucose to burn, you will start burning fat instead. This process is called ketosis. Ketones circulate in the bloodstream and are used by tissues and muscles for fuel. You will excrete any ketones not used for energy in your urine. Don't Miss: Healthy Low-Carb Recipes Ketosis vs. Ketoacidosis "Ketosis is simply the presence of ketones in the blood," says Staci Freeworth, R.D., C.D.E., professor of nutrition at Bowling Green State University. "This can be caused by periods of energy imbalance, a change in diet, pregnancy or overconsumption of alcohol." Ketosis is a normal response in the body when a healthy person with a balanced diet starts fasting or severely restricting calories or carbohydrates (e.g., the super low-carb ketogenic diet). Ketosis happens when the body senses a state Continue reading >>

    Is this just a coincidence? Has anyone else started keto and have their appendix removed?

  2. NotAFrenchSupermodel

    Its a modern problem, some note countries with squat toilets have no issues with appendicitis. It's the way pressure is exerted on the bowels with western style toilets. Squatting evacuates the appendix by pressure on the right thigh.

    Holy Crap! I re-started Keto last Monday and had an appendectomy last Saturday... Still, I think it was coincidental, I'd been on Keto for months in 2013 with no issues. Anyway, at least you know it won't happen again! All the best for your recovery.

In fact, being stressed out is probably ruining your ketogenic diet and stalling all your attempts of getting into ketosis. Periodic bouts of stress are actually beneficial and even needed. The problem is that in our modern world, were exposed to too many stressors too frequently. When cortisol is elevated, glucose is released into the bloodstream. What follows are higher levels of insulin as well. As blood glucose goes up, ketones go down and vice versa. Raising insulin will stop fat burning and keto-adaptation for the coming few hours, potentially even days. This video explains to you why this is so and what you can do to prevent it.

Why Dka & Nutritional Ketosis Are Not The Same

There’s a very common misconception and general misunderstanding around ketones. Specifically, the misunderstandings lie in the areas of: ketones that are produced in low-carb diets of generally less than 50 grams of carbs per day, which is low enough to put a person in a state of “nutritional ketosis” ketones that are produced when a diabetic is in a state of “diabetic ketoacidosis” (DKA) and lastly, there are “starvation ketones” and “illness-induced ketones” The fact is they are very different. DKA is a dangerous state of ketosis that can easily land a diabetic in the hospital and is life-threatening. Meanwhile, “nutritional ketosis” is the result of a nutritional approach that both non-diabetics and diabetics can safely achieve through low-carb nutrition. Diabetic Ketoacidosis vs. Nutritional Ketosis Ryan Attar (soon to be Ryan Attar, ND) helps explain the science and actual human physiology behind these different types of ketone production. Ryan is currently studying to become a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine in Connecticut and also pursuing a Masters Degree in Human Nutrition. He has interned under the supervision of the very well-known diabetes doc, Dr Continue reading >>

    You need to eat (healthy) carbohydrates for energy. If you aren't eating enough carbs, you aren't going to have the energy you need to do your exercise. I've read that a lot of people on low-carb diets have problems with a lack of energy (and bad breath), and that's because of their diets.

    Thanks @DanielleinDC -- In the past I've always relied on carbs for energy, particularly for strenuous physical exercise, but right now I'm experimenting with trying to get energy from burning fat. I'll keep plugging at it for a few more weeks and see if I experience the much-touted ketosis mental energy boost (and I'll make sure to hit the breath mints).
    Preliminary result: On an empty stomach, I went out this morning for 30 minutes of very light cardio (never got over 75% of max heart rate) and felt great. I've only consumed about 20 grams of carbs for breakfast and lunch, and I must say that I am feeling unusually good and energetic - not sleepy or hungry at all, and better able to stay on task. If I continue to feel this good for more than a couple of days, I'll feel that I am definitely on to something good.

    Yeah lack of energy,funky breath,a weird taste in your mouth and throat all the time.Much better to eat maybe 80 gms of carbs a day instead of 30.
    At least then you can eat good carb containing vegetables and some rice noodles or beans.
    Life for me was pretty much hell on keto diet and not sustainable at all.
    I still lose weight this way and don't suffer.

Ketosis is not the same as diabetic ketoacidosis. There are 2 major differences between dietary ketosis: 1. range (dietary ketosis is in a far lower range); and 2. very high blood glucose levels resulting in massive dehydration. Treatments for Diabetic Ketoacidosis include intravenous hydration, insulin and potassium replacement. Fats are made of triglyceride molecules. Triglycerides are made of glycerin and 3 fatty acids. (Glycerin is a 3 carbon low-glycemic carbohydrate used as a sweetener. ) The liver takes fatty acids and metabolizes them down to ketones and water.

Is Ketosis Dangerous? No, Because Ketosis Is Not Ketoacidosis.

At this point, I consider myself pretty immune to what internet trolls say to me. I have a pretty tough skin, usually laugh off nonsensical comments, and carry on with my day. This last time was different. When checking the social media account for my ketosis supplement company, Perfect Keto, I noticed a rather ridiculous comment. To the best of my memory, the comment said something like this: “How dare you promote ketosis?! I HATE KETOSIS! My daughter is a diabetic and had to be brought to hospital the other day because she was in ketoacidosis! Shame on you and everyone like who you recommends a dangerous diet that kills people! You are killing people! AGHHH!” Not only is this comment wildly misinformed and ignorant, I think comments like this are more dangerous than the promoting the ketogenic diet. When people make comments like this, they use the same scare tactics and lack of facts that have recently overtaken our political system to influence people in not using very beneficial tools to their advantage. Sometimes you just have to use your brain. The unfortunate truth is that this lady isn’t the only delusional and misinformed one instilling fear into people who are tryi Continue reading >>

    I was admitted to hospital a few weeks ago with ketoacidosis. It gave me a bit of a shock and I'm now controlling my levels much better than I had been recently. However, this (I think) is making me gain weight. Any ideas on when weight gain might stop?? (I've put on nearly a stone in 4 weeks.) I'm not overweight (at all!) but am a little obsessive about my weight/size. Thanks for help and advice!!

  2. xxlou_lxx

    Might depend on 2 things really, one being how long you had DKA and how much you actually lost through having it. I guess you will put on what you lost because your body is getting back to normal again, but unless you have changed your eating habbits then thats all you should gain i would think?

  3. randomange

    It's apparently quite common to put weight on when your control improves. The reason (to quote my DSN) is that you're no longer peeing a whole load of sugar down the toilet! If your levels were particularly high before, then a lot of the calories you were taking in weren't actually being used by your body, but once your insulin levels are right(ish ) and your blood sugars start to come down, then your body can actually process these calories properly again.
