5.1 - Metabolic Acidosis : Definition

Acid-Base Physiology A metabolic acidosis is an abnormal primary process or condition leading to an increase in fixed acids in the blood. This causes the arterial plasma bicarbonate to fall to a level lower than expected. The fall in plasma bicarbonate is due to titration of HCO3- by H+. Secondary or compensatory processes which cause a fall in plasma bicarbonate should not be confused with primary processes. A fall in bicarbonate occurring in response to a chronic respiratory alkalosis should be referred to as a compensatory response and never as a �secondary metabolic acidosis�. This distinction between a primary process and a secondary one has been discussed previously in section 3.1.2 when discussing terminology of acid-base disorders. It is of course possible for a patient to have a mixed acid-base disorder with both a metabolic acidosis and a respiratory alkalosis. An example would be an adult presenting following a salicylate overdose. In this situation, direct stimulation of the respiratory centre occurs resulting in a respiratory alkalosis as well as the salicylate-related metabolic acidosis.

    Hello all, as i write this my arms are all jittery and i am very squirrely because i had a full cup of coffee. Is this normal after going on Keto? Before i would drink 2-3 cups a day and never once did i get all hyped up. Just enough to wake up and that about it. Now i drink a cup and i'm set for about 9 hours, until i get home and crash.
    I will adjust my drinking habits, but i was wondering if this was common with the rest of us Ketoers or if its just me.

    I actually call it "finally caffeine is doing its job". With carbs, the coffee would just be ineffective since the carbs would counter me with sluggishness. I'd enjoy the taste but never woke me up. Now I drink more, and I kick into high gear. To me it's great.

    I agree with this 100%, I feel as though coffee serves me a purpose now.

  • What Are The Causes Of Metabolic Acidosis And Alkalosis?

    Metabolic alkalosis is common—half of all acid-base disorders as described in one study (1). This observation should not be surprising since vomiting, the use of chloruretic diuretics, and nasogastric suction are common among hospitalized patients. The mortality associated with severe metabolic alkalosis is substantial; a mortality rate of 45% in patients with an arterial blood pH of 7.55 and 80% when the pH was greater than 7.65 has been repor ...

  • Acidosis And Alkalosis

    For acidosis referring to acidity of the urine, see renal tubular acidosis. "Acidemia" redirects here. It is not to be confused with Academia. Acidosis is a process causing increased acidity in the blood and other body tissues (i.e., an increased hydrogen ion concentration). If not further qualified, it usually refers to acidity of the blood plasma. The term acidemia describes the state of low blood pH, while acidosis is used to describe the proc ...
