Should I Be Worried About Ketoacidosis?

Doctors may tell you to worry about something called ketoacidosis if you go on a ketogenic diet. You only need to worry about ketoacidosis if your ketones are high and your glucose is ALSO high. This is not good and can sometimes occur in diabetics on high-sugar diets. This is very unlikely to occur on a carnivore diet because you don’t eat enough carbohydrates or sugar to raise your glucose. It really doesn’t appear possible to go into ketoacidosis if you aren’t consuming carbs and sugar. If you’re concerned about this anyways, you can buy a ketone and glucose monitor to monitor your levels of both.
