Ketosis represents a state of the organism characterized by the controlled and regulated production of ketone bodies in the blood via various metabolic processes.
During deficient carbohydrate intake, reduced insulin levels lead to a reduction in lipogenesis and fat accumulation.
After several days of fasting, glucose reserves become insufficient both for normal fat oxidation and for the proper functioning of the brain.
Ketosis can be caused by a ketogenic diet.
