The ketotic state has been of major interest to biochemists, physiologists and clinicians for many years. It is our purpose here to review recent advances that provide new insights into the mechanisms by which ketogenesis is regulated. To this end, we shall briefly discuss current understanding of the biochemical physiology of ketogenesis, the hormonal induction of ketosis and clinical implications.
