The gallbladder concentrates and stores bile as a pear-shaped sac which it can release to help digestion after a fatty meal.
It is a commonly found condition with patients who suffer from type 1 diabetes. The breakdown of fatty acids and that of amino acids results in ketoacidosis. Starvation can also lead to ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis leads to a severe accumulation of keto acids because of which the pH of the blood gets affected. With diabetic patients, an insulin deficiency and dehydration are accompanying symptoms.
