What would be the biochemical findings in this patient? A 29-year-old male decides to go on the Atkins diet. After approximately a month on the diet, he complains of having what he describes as bad breath.
A. Increased synthesis of fatty acids in adipose tissue due to excess free fatty acids released from adipose tissue B. Decreased gluconeogenesis due to lack of activation of pyruvate carboxylase C. Decreased levels of free fatty acids and undetectable ketone bodies in the plasma due to inactivation of LPL D. Increased synthesis and recycling of fatty acids by the liver leading to increased adipose tissue storage of fats E. Increased beta-oxidation due to increased activity of hormone sensitive lipase with subsequent increase in ketone bodies in plasma
