Excessive production of ketone bodies in diabetes patients
Low insulin --> low intracellular sugar. This means that the bodies energy is going to be coming from the breakdown of Fats. The TAG undergo B-Oxidation to become Acety-CoA and in the process generate a ton of NADH. This causes the TCA cycle to slow and makes Acety-CoA find another means of further breakdown. Acetyl-CoA enters Ketongenesis.
