    Type 1 Tyrosinemia
    What is this condition anyway?
    Type 1 Tyrosinemia is a condition in which one's body is incapable of metabolizing the amino acid Tyrosine. This condition typically pops up at birth and is not something you would usually just contract. The symptoms that can give Type 1 Tyrosinemia are rapid weight loss, an enlarged liver, and the yellowing of skin and eyes (As seen in the picture above).
    Type 1 Tyrosinemia is an autosomal recessive condition, this means that both parents carry a copy of the gene but may not be affected by it. This condition results from mutations in the FAH gene which is responsible for creating the enzyme that breaks down tyrosine.
    Is Type 1 Tyrosinemia treatable?
    This condition is treatable with a medicine known as Orfadin, this formula helps the body deal with the buildup of tyrosine. The affected must make sure their diet is low in tyrosine if they plan on using the medicine, or if they just plan on staying alive really. An affected individual could also get a liver transplant, this is only if an affected infant develops early liver failure.
    How rare is this disorder?
    This disorder is extremely rare, only showing up once out every 100,000 to 120,000 infants.

    Introduction:
    ...
    rare circumstances. There are generally three common/main types of ketoacidosis: Alcoholic, starvation, and diabetic ketoacidosis.

    Types:
    ...
    diabetic ketoacidosis
    Diabetic ketoacidosis-
    Diabetic ketoacidosis results in the development of ketone bodies, these can cause insulin deficiencies and dehydration. Specifically, type 1 diabetes obstructs glucose absorption, which will eventually lead to critical glucose and ketone levels in the blood.
    Starvation ketoacidosis -
    Starvation ketoacidosis will cause a lack of insulin that will result in prolonged starvation. Because of this, there will be an increase in the delivery of free fatty acids to the liver. This will exceed the limit of acetyl-CoA and ketogenesis will result.
    Alcoholic Ketoacidosis-

    Alcoholic ketoacidosis results in dehydration, which will block the initiation of gluceonogenesis from exhausting the oxalacetate. Eventually, the body will be unable to produce enough glucose which will later result in the formation of ketone bodies, along with fatty acid metabolism.

    Insulin Resistance

    Insulin Resistance
    A resistance to the hormone insulin, resulting in increasing blood sugar. You may get this by eating too many processed foods. The processed foods spike your blood sugar and put pressure on your pancreas. This may cause your pancreas to not work as well and since your pancreas produces insulin, you will have less insulin.
