Ketone body utilization decreases when blood flow to the heart is reduced

ScienceDaily | 1/16/2019 | Staff
Researchers found that about 35% of the ketone bodies were consumed during coronary circulation under normal conditions. They also discovered that the utilization of ketone bodies decreases substantially when coronary circulation is reduced (myocardial ischemia). In myocardial ischemia, anaerobic metabolism is accelerated, lactic acid production is increased, and mitochondrial function requiring oxygen is impaired. When the mitochondrial function is impaired, ketone bodies cannot be used....
