Lactic Acidosis

Patient professional reference Professional Reference articles are written by UK doctors and are based on research evidence, UK and European Guidelines. They are designed for health professionals to use. You may find one of our health articles more useful. Description Lactic acidosis is a form of metabolic acidosis due to the inadequate clearance of lactic acid from the blood. Lactate is a byproduct of anaerobic respiration and is normally cleared from the blood by the liver, kidney and skeletal muscle. Lactic acidosis occurs when the body's buffering systems are overloaded and tends to cause a pH of ≤7.25 with plasma lactate ≥5 mmol/L. It is usually caused by a state of tissue hypoperfusion and/or hypoxia. This causes pyruvic acid to be preferentially converted to lactate during anaerobic respiration. Hyperlactataemia is defined as plasma lactate >2 mmol/L. Classification Cohen and Woods devised the following system in 1976 and it is still widely used:[1] Type A: lactic acidosis occurs with clinical evidence of tissue hypoperfusion or hypoxia. Type B: lactic acidosis occurs without clinical evidence of tissue hypoperfusion or hypoxia. It is further subdivided into: Type B1: du Continue reading >>

    Hey all,
    New to Keto. I've been on it roughly 5 days at this point, but I'm noticing I have random aches on random places on my body. For example right now it's my left bicep. It's not from exercise because my fat ass doesn't exercise right now.
    Is this something I should expect?
    Current macros:
    126g fat
    131g protein
    22g carbs
    From the keto calculator thingy on the sidebar (65% fat, 30% protein, 5% carbs)
    It seems like I'm getting adequate protein intake for my size (this is roughly the same amount of meat I'd usually eat, just add in a shit ton of other bad shit that I currently don't eat?
    It currently feels like I did a roaring bicep workout yesterday (you know the kind where it hurts to extend your arm?)
    Also, I have a strange feeling in the bottom of my stomach throughout the day and I don't understand what it is?
    One more random question: I'm not actually hungry but I haven't quite hit my macros yet today, (see picture for info). Do I really need to fill that out?

    Keto flu, yes, you should expect it but that doesn't mean you can't manage it! This post really helped me: http://www.reddit.com/r/keto/comments/1b89uv/science_avoiding_keto_flu_explained/

    Two problems: I've already cut the sugar down for 5 days, so I'm not sure increasing it is gonna help.
    Secondly, I'm hypertensive so I think increasing my sodium intake is probably a bad idea. My BP before I started this diet was still a little on the high side 127 ish, so if this lowers it a little bit that'd technically be fine.
    I'm drinking about 1.5L of water a day and usually have one or two diet sodas fwiw.

  • Why Does Metabolic Acidosis Cause Abdominal Pain

    Metabolic acidosis is a condition that occurs when the body produces excessive quantities of acid or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body.Due to increased production of hydrogen ions by the body or the inability of the body to form bicarbonate (HCO3-) in the kidney metabolic acidosis leads to acidemia(blood pH is low (less than 7.35). Its causes are diverse, and its consequences can be serious, including coma and death. Tog ...
