This does not fit in with this description from a former IP post:
Ketoacidosis, on the other hand, is when the process has gone wild, and the
blood chemistry has become distinctly abnormal, with a build-up of excess
acid products. Symptoms include nausea, heavy breathing, dehydration,
stupor, coma, and finally, death.

Comas *require* hospitalization.
