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.

    Cheat day on keto?

    Hello,
    I searched for this and found many answers on these forums and found quite a few range of answers.
    If I had one cheat day a weak where I would eat stuff like pasta or junk food would that be ok for my keto diet? Basically no counting calories, carbs or anything.
    I heard that it's not a cheat day but a "carb up", but my goal is to lose body fat, so is it still ok?

    dont confuse a carb-load period with a cheat day. they are two very different things.
    the carb-load refills muscle gylcogen and always follows a depletion workout, thus serving a purpose within the diet. a cheat day does nothing but satisfy your cravings for your favorite foods, while typically setting you back in terms of you weight loss goals.
    if you're fortunate like i am, you can incorporate "cheat meal" foods into your carb-load period. while i've never had a cheat day ever when dieting (cutting), all of the foods that i would binge on, short of pizza and peanutbutter, i can consume en-mass during the carb-load period. im a sucker for heaping stacks of pancakes, comically large bowls of cereal, and lots of pasta. thankfully, these are all sources of carbs, consisting primarily of carbs, and are beneficial during the carb-load.
    learn to love your carbs, and essentially, your carb-load period every week will become, as you think of it a "cheat day"

    So can I have one carb load day a week where I eat low fat, high carb foods and then just continue with low carbs for the rest of the week? I'll be knocked out of ketosis though right?

  • Metabolic Acidosis And Alkalosis

    There are two main types of pH imbalances in the body: acidosis and alkalosis. An increase in H+ ion levels in the blood causes pH levels to fall resulting in acidosis. A decrease in H+ levels causes pH levels to rise, making the blood more basic, or alkaline. These conditions can be caused by two kinds of disturbances to the buffers that control the body’s pH levels, which alter the acid-base balance. Metabolic and respiratory acidosis and alk ...

    The Terrible Effects of Acid Acid corrosion is a well-known fact. Acid rain can peel the paint off of a car. Acidifying ocean water bleaches and destroys coral reefs. Acid can burn a giant hole through metal. It can also burn holes, called cavities, into your teeth. I think I've made my point. Acid, regardless of where it's at, is going to hurt. And when your body is full of acid, then it's going to destroy your fragile, soft, internal organs eve ...

  • Can You Have Respiratory And Metabolic Acidosis At The Same Time?

    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. If unchecked, metabolic acidosis leads to acidemia, i.e., blood pH is low (less than 7.35) due to increased production of hydrogen ions by the body or the inability of the body to form bicarbonate (HCO3−) in the kidney. Its causes are diverse, and its consequences can be serious, inclu ...
