1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Kateoacidosis occurs when the diabetes gets out of control to the point that the usual amounts of Insulin can no longer keep the blood sugar level within reasonable limits - it has lost its metabolic effect.
The body begins to burn fat for fuel and the ketoacidosis results from the fat metabolism.
