Re: [IPk] Re: Variable insulin resistance etc



But if you have diabetes, you get ketones from _insulin deficiency_ having 
forced the body to utilize previously stored fats and proteins for fuel. If 
you just eat a hamburger and take insulin to cover it, some of the ingested 
protein and fat will be metabolized into glucose in a healthy way. You'll 
only get ketones if that hamburger needs to have a second life as an energy 
source because you went without insulin for a while.

Doesn't it stink that we have to deal with metabolic issues specific to 
diabetes _and_ 'normal' metabolism? It is so confusing!!!
