  1. ketosis-resistant diabetes

    Ketosis-resistant diabetes, also known as non-ketotic diabetes or type 2 diabetes, is a metabolic condition where the body is unable to properly utilize insulin or has reduced insulin sensitivity, leading to high levels of glucose in the blood. Unlike ketotic diabetes (type 1), people with ketosis-resistant diabetes do not typically develop ketosis (a condition in which the body formulates an abnormal amount of ketone bodies) even with uncontrolled blood glucose levels. This is because they still produce some insulin, which inhibits fat breakdown and the subsequent formation of ketone bodies.
