This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Ketosis is caused by the excess ketones in the body.
Ketones can be produced due to the starvation.
Alcoholism also causes ketosis.
Diabetes is another important cause of ketosis.
Ketosis can cause mental confusion, memory problems, even lack of response, slowness or fatigue, sweet breath odor as well.
ow your wife can also have other issues like thyroid gland disorder or alcohol related brain damage over time.
But first, she needs blood tests --complete metabolic panel including blood sugar and liver function. , ketone levels etc.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
