After the production of ketones, large amount of sugar releases which stores in our liver, by our liver but our body unable to use it without insulin so it mixes with our blood along with ketones of acid. Combination of that acid with dehydration and presence of extra glucose knows as Keto-Acidosis and it can threat our life if we will not treat it on time and in right way.
