Fasting Ketosis And Alcoholic Ketoacidosis

INTRODUCTION Ketoacidosis is the term used for metabolic acidoses associated with an accumulation of ketone bodies. The most common cause of ketoacidosis is diabetic ketoacidosis. Two other causes are fasting ketosis and alcoholic ketoacidosis. Fasting ketosis and alcoholic ketoacidosis will be reviewed here. Issues related to diabetic ketoacidosis are discussed in detail elsewhere. (See "Diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state in adults: Epidemiology and pathogenesis" and "Diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state in adults: Clinical features, evaluation, and diagnosis" and "Diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state in adults: Treatment".) PHYSIOLOGY OF KETONE BODIES There are three major ketone bodies, with the interrelationships shown in the figure (figure 1): Acetoacetic acid is the only true ketoacid. The more dominant acid in patients with ketoacidosis is beta-hydroxybutyric acid, which results from the reduction of acetoacetic acid by NADH. Beta-hydroxybutyric acid is a hydroxyacid, not a true ketoacid. Continue reading >>

    So I have looked high and low. Is there a list out there of supplements (i.e BCAA, L-carnitine, creatine etc etc ) that have the potential of kicking you out of keto. Or maybe should I be looking for a particular ingredient other than the obvious (i.e sugar or sugar derivative)?
    My urine ketones seem to drop dramatically after a heavy weight session (which involves supplements as noted above). I always bounce back very quickly, but its good to be in the know.
    Facts: current weight 110, BF 17%, height 5'2", sex F, age 48 soon to be 49. 6 weeks out from my 1st grand master figure comp & excited as heck!! Keto since May 1, 2015 and luv'g it.

    Put the ketostix away, you can make no conclusions from the level on the stick. Embrace it, as discussed yesterday, don't second guess what's clearly working for you

    Nutritional ketosis relies on empty liver glycogen. That's it. I don't know why people think things like caffeine will "Kick them out of keto". Is it a substantial amount of carbs? No? Then unless it's something that will kill you already (thus halting ketosis) it won't do anything other than at most reduce the amount of circulating ketones in the blood. Which doesn't matter, you'll still produce them as needed unless you start carbs again.

    There is a lot of confusion about the term ketosis among medical professionals as well as laypeople. It is important to understand when and why nutritional ketosis occurs, and why it should not be confused with the metabolic disorder we call ketoacidosis. Ketosis is a metabolic state where the liver produces small organic molecules called ketone bodies. Most cells in the body can use ketone bodies as a source of energy. When there is a limited su ...

  • Can Starvation Cause Metabolic Acidosis?

    GENERAL ketoacidosis is a high anion gap metabolic acidosis due to an excessive blood concentration of ketone bodies (keto-anions). ketone bodies (acetoacetate, beta-hydroxybutyrate, acetone) are released into the blood from the liver when hepatic lipid metabolism has changed to a state of increased ketogenesis. a relative or absolute insulin deficiency is present in all cases. CAUSES The three major types of ketosis are: (i) Starvation ketosis ( ...
