I'm in college, taking pre-health (essentially high school refresher course) in preparation for a two-year practical nursing course. One of my courses is biology. So, in a sudden pique of interest, I perused the index to see if ketosis was listed. It was, along with ketoacidosis. I flipped to the pages, and promptly freaked out.
According to my book, ketosis leads to coma and death, while ketoacidosis gives the breath a fruity scent, and is a product of a "no-carb diet". I took some screen caps of both pages and underlined in red the parts that had me silently fuming in a public place.
Am I seeing this correctly? Do I have reason to freak out?
From everything I've read, it's the opposite, right?
