Ketosis-prone diabetes or KPD is an intermediate form of diabetes and is a widespread syndrome. To review the influencing factors of ketosis in type 2 diabetes (T2DK), All patients of ketosis with type 2 diabetes are studied under single entity as the method. In this review, we described the current state of knowledge in regard to Ethnicity, age, sex, family history, infection, obesity, Dyslipidemia, and Hyperglycemia is associated as the influencing factors in Ketosis-Prone Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
