Ketonemia can be a physiological response to a reduction in dietary intake. It also may occur when energy demands exceed the energy intake. Normally, alimentary ketogenesis is the major source of ketone bodies in ruminants. During ketonemia there is increased hepatic ketone body production. During physiological ketosis, the mobilization of free fatty acids is inadequate to support a high rate of hepatic ketogenesis. However, during clinical ketosis, the hormonal status (low insulin, high… CONTINUE READING
