Keto Diet and Ketoacidosis

Few of the articles talk about the ketogenic diet or keto results in ketoacidosis. This article talks about what Dr. Ken Berry takes on the keto diet, ketosis, and ketoacidosis. He also mentions that ketosis and ketoacidosis are two different terms. Go on  and readout 

What Dr. Ken Berry Has To Say:

Dr. Ken Berry is affiliated with Henry County Medical Center in Tennessee, US. He has an immensely popular youtube channel with over 1 Million Subscribers across the globe.

Dr. Ken Berry is the author of the bestseller \”Lies My Doctor Told Me\” which reveals myths and misleading health advice from well-meaning doctors, such as avoiding fat. He in fact himself follows the Ketogenic diet and often is seen terming Keto as the Proper & Natural Human Diet.


Ken Berry says ketosis and ketoacidosis are two different terms.

Ketoacidosis is a completely different thing from ketosis. They are not in any way related. Being in ketosis will never lead to ketoacidosis in order to become ketoacidosis. You have to have very high blood sugar and very low insulin level.

And almost always, you have to have had some trauma or some infection or some illness in order to develop ketoacidosis. So the ketogenic diet does not cause very high blood sugar. And so that\’s one of the criteria for developing ketoacidosis is that you don\’t have enough insulin in your body to deal with the very high blood sugar level.

There, it doesn\’t cause a high blood sugar level and Keto causes your insulin levels to return to normal. So the ketosis is not the same thing as ketoacidosis. 

He also mentions his video that explains ketosis and ketoacidosis in more detail on his YouTube channel which would be a great reference to understand this topic in a battery way. 

Dr. Ken berry also mentions that there are many doctors out there who say keto will cause ketoacidosis but that\’s a myth. That\’s not true. The Keto diet does not result in ketoacidosis.
