Dr. Berg talks about the difference between ketosis versus ketoacidosis. They are NOT the same, nutritional ketosis is controlled insulin and ketoacidosis is uncontrolled due to not having any insulin left.

Hey guys, Dr. Berg here and in this short video we are going to talk about the difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis. They are not the same, some people they don’t want to go into ketosis because they think they assume that is it dangerous because they have the same word keto which is not. Ketoacidosis is a very dangerous disease that happens when you have type 1 diabetic or when you don’t make any more insulin and it is out of control or an uncontrolled insulin so the blood sugars are extremely high because you don’t have any insulin to make it down. Since ketones are acidic the pH becomes very much of a problem. They have excessive thirst, urination coming out through your body by too much urination and you are completely dehydrated, you lose the electrolytes, you have fatigue, breathing is off. When we look at there is a massive amounts of ketones. Ketosis is between 1-8 or it’s a smaller amount of mild fat burning, it is controlled to diet, you don’t have very many symptoms, maybe some slight adaptation symptoms a little fatigue but if you took B vitamins and potassium, that would clear right up. There is a low amount of insulin, but it is still there and the cells are getting nutrition, low amounts of blood sugar, your blood sugars are good. The ketosis is totally healthy and is not the same with ketoacidosis even though they have the same first four letters, but they are not the same.
