When insulin is deficient, glucose is unavailable for cellular metabolism and the choice labs keto body chooses alternate sources of fuel, principally fat. Consequently fats break down into fatty acids and glycerol in the fat cells and in the liver and are converted to ketone bodies (3-hydroxybutyric acid, acetoacetic acid and acetone). The ketone bodies are used as the alternative to glucose as source of fuel but are utilized in the cells at a limited rate. Any excess is expelled in the Urine (ketonuria) or the lungs (acetone breath).
