I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes at 25 weeks pregnant. I was super scared of what the risks were and dove right in to the diet my doctor and dietician gave me! Now, my days look pretty much the same, which helps keep my sugars level.

The eating “plan” is a basic Atkins diet. Because Atkins allows the body to shift into ketosis (dangerous for diabetics but stops hunger pangs & gives great energy. Following the plan, women can expect 3–4 lbs. a week weigh loss & men more. GR8FUL Continue reading >>

    (edit: it's worth pointing out that "Ketosis " on it's own is not a bad thing, but Diabetic ketoacidosis is. I assume this is the point of the question)
    Diabetic Ketoacidosis comes from High (hyper) Blood Sugar not Low (Hypo). They could happen together, if you had high blood sugar for too long, the Ketoacidosis happened then you over treated the high and it went low. In this case you'd have 2 separate problems. Hypoglaycemia and Ketoacidosis. Low blood sugar will make you pass out and go into a coma eventually. Ketoacidosis is very painful and horrible to be part of. But I wouldn't say they increase each others danger very much.

    I'm not a doctor, but from what I know of diabetic conditions, both of these can be dangerous, and especially if they occur together (especially since ketosis would probably indicate serious hypoglycemia).

What Are The Dangers Of Placing The Body On Constant Ketosis?

As you might know, ketosis is the process of breaking down stored fat for energy when glucose and glycogen are too low. This is a good weight loss process when done occasionally but too much of something is never good. The biochemistry behind it: During ketosis, fatty acid chains are broken down in the liver in to ketone bodies. These ketone bodies are carried through the blood stream in order to reach surrounding tissues in need of energy. Once they reach a cell, they’re converted in to acetyl CoA so that they can go through the citric acid cycle to produce energy in the mitochondria. The problem with too much of it: When someone’s body is under constant ketosis, the concentration of ketone bodies in their blood stream becomes too high. Ketone bodies like acetoacetic acid and R-beta-hydroxybutyric acid are acidic. High concentrations of those in your bloodstream will make your blood acidic, which leads to acidosis. This can lead to a number of symptoms which I invite you to look up, none of them are good and it should be treated as soon as possible. One of those symptoms is a characteristic fruity acetone breath. Constant ketosis happens to people with untreated type 1 diabete Continue reading >>

Why Does Diabetes Cause Ketosis?

In diabetes due to the insulin deficiency there is increased hepatic gluconeogenesis and lipolysis And this lipolysis inturn increases free fatty acids. Now you know that as insulin is deficient in diabetes glucose cant be utilised as a energy source. So to get the energy an alternative source of these free fatty acids are used. End ketones being the end product of this fatty acid metabolism it gets accumulated. Initially it causes ketonemia(increased ketone bodies in blood) but this cycle keeps on going at ketoacidosis occurs. P.S- I just tried to simplify the answer,the exact mechanism is complex as there are lot of steps involved in it. Continue reading >>

    Diabetic ketoacidosis is a life threatening condition, due to lack of insulin serious acidosis, high blood sugars causing loss of fluid because of peeing a lot causing life threatening dehydration, low blood pressure, acute kidney failure etc. etc., while not eating causing ketosis doesn’t have all above mentioned problems, just ketones due to low carbs.

    Muslims probably have a degree of ketosis from fasting for a month of Ramadan and they seem to do OK. Generally, ketones rise when you force your body to burn fats as an alternate source of energy. It is just not as efficient as clean burning GLUCOSE … our main energy source. The byproducts of using fats for energy are ketones (acetone) and acids (beta-hydroxybutyric acid and acetoacetic acid). If you are in firm grasp of what you are doing this for (body sculpting or puke and purge party for the play about the Holocaust or marathon training) then a short lived trip to Ketosis Land might be all right. IF YOU ARE DOING THIS BECAUSE YOUR MIND CAN SEE ONLY A FAT PIG IN THE MIRROR … get some help … My favorite singer of the past century, Karen Carpenter, died from anorexia … and my life lost some of it’s luster at her passing.

Ketosis is a normal metabolic process, something your body does to keep working. When it doesn't have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, it burns fat instead. As part of this process, it makes ketones. If you're healthy and eating a balanced diet, your body controls ...

    Ketosis is merely the process of converting fat into energy by the breaking down of ketoacids.

However, Diabetic Ketoacidosis is a very serious metabolic disorder that can cause death. Insulin usually allows cells to take in energy (glucose) ...
