Diabetic States and CVD

  • Jens Møller

Abstract

Insights gained from a study of the role of anaerobic metabolism in CVD are applicable to other disorders, among them diabetic states. Patients with insulin-dependent, juvenile-onset diabetes can oxidize ketone bodies, built up from acetic acid units. This is an attempt to provide an alternative, noncarbohydrate energy source. If ketone-body production exceeds the rate at which dissimilation can be carried out by the tissues, then ketone bodies accumulate in the blood (ketosis).
