Ketogenesis vs ketosis

Ketosis, or ketone bodies, are the main fuel source for your brain, heart, and kidneys.

Ketoacidosis, or ketone production in the blood, is dangerous and can be life-threatening.

Ketones are produced by a process called ketogenesis. Ketones are released from fat cells in the liver and can be used as a fuel source for your body.

Ketosis is the default state of the body and is the body’s preferred fuel source. When ketones are not present, fat is the preferred fuel source.

Ketoacidosis is a medical emergency.

When ketones are present in high quantities, they damage the liver and lead to liver failure.

Ketosis and ketoacidosis are not the same. Ketosis is the preferred fuel source and ketoacidosis is a medical emergency.
