hana, you need to get some sleep
i am not sleepy now but have a question that might sound coming from a very sleeeeepy
why we develop ketoacidosis and keton building up in insulin deficiency situation such as DM1, but we do not have this issue when we simply have just hypoglycemia for any reason?
i need some one tell me please what is exact roll of insulin when cells need to use glucose?? my confusion is since i know insulin has no effect on glucose uptake by cells-except skeletal resting muscles and adipose tissue - i can not find other reason for insulin, maybe it is because cells can not do glycolysis without insulin??
