Diabetes is a metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycemia, glycosuria, hyperlipidemia, negative nitrogen balance, and ketonemia. Insulin resistance refers to suboptimal response of body tissues, especially, liver, skeletal muscle, and fat to physiological amounts of insulin, and it is the integral part of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) advanced age, obesity, and sedentary lifestyle promoting insulin resistance.
Ketosis (ketonemia and ketonuria) is a metabolic disorder in dairy animals caused by impaired metabolism of carbohydrate and volatile fatty acids leading to excessive production of ketone bodies: Acetoacetic acid, beta-hydroxybutyric acid and their decarboxylation products such as acetone and isopropanol (Radostits et al., 2000).
Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) was defined as a pH greater than 7.3, ketonuria or ketonemia, and bicarbonate levels greater than 15mmol/L.
