more on ketones

Hi Invincible,

I would also add that keytones are created if there is not enough insulin to assist in the “burning” of the carbs/sugars. I understand that when the body does not have the sugar or cannot burn the sugar, it burns fat for its energy creating the ketones. What I don’t understand is what is a “ketone” and is this something that makes you acidic or is it just a coincidence that in Diabetic Ketone Acidosis for example you have the ketones and a threatened blood pH at the same time?

Further, I’d love a good old moreless answer on exactly what is happening from a bio-chemical point of view when one enters into DKA. I know what it looks like and it is not something anyone would want to go through!
