What is BLOOD PLASMA? What does BLOOD PLASMA mean? BLOOD PLASMA meaning, definition & explanation. Blood plasma is the pale straw (yellow) coloured liquid component of blood that normally holds the blood cells in whole blood in suspension; this makes plasma the extracellular matrix of blood cells. It makes up about 55% of the body's total blood volume. It is the intravascular fluid part of extracellular fluid (all body fluid outside of cells). It is mostly water (up to 95% by volume), and contains dissolved proteins (6–8%) (i.e.—serum albumins, globulins, and fibrinogen), glucose, clotting factors, electrolytes (Na+, Ca2+, Mg2+, HCO3-, Cl-, etc.), hormones, and carbon dioxide (plasma being the main medium for excretory product transportation). Plasma also serves as the protein reserve of the human body. It plays a vital role in an intravascular osmotic effect that keeps electrolytes in balanced form and protects the body from infection and other blood disorders. Blood plasma is prepared by spinning a tube of fresh blood containing an anticoagulant in a centrifuge until the blood cells fall to the bottom of the tube. The blood plasma is then poured or drawn off. Blood plasma has

Plasma Bicarbonate Lowers Type 2 Diabetes Risk

Plasma Bicarbonate Lowers Type 2 Diabetes Risk Abstract:Plasma Bicarbonate Lowers Type 2 Diabetes Risk Background: Several biomarkers of metabolic acidosis, including lower plasma bicarbonate and higher anion gap, have been associated with greater insulin resistance in cross-sectional studies. We sought to examine whether lower plasma bicarbonate is associated with the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus in a prospective study. Methods: We conducted a prospective, nested casecontrol study within the Nurses Health Study. Plasma bicarbonate was measured in 630 women who did not have type 2 diabetes mellitus at the time of blood draw in 19891990 but developed type 2 diabetes mellitus during 10 years of follow-up. Controls were matched according to age, ethnic background, fasting status and date of blood draw. We used logistic regression to calculate odds ratios (ORs) for diabetes by category of baseline plasma bicarbonate. Results: After adjustment for matching factors, body mass index, plasma creatinine level and history of hypertension, women with plasma bicarbonate above the median level had lower odds of diabetes compared with women below the median level. Those in the second Continue reading >>

    I was curious how many people practice IF with keto. I started both at the beginning of June. I practice a 20:4 IF schedule and usually eat one meal and maybe a small snack before or after. My eating window is from 7pm-11pm so my SO and I can eat dinner together when he gets home from work around 8pm-9pm. I'm starting to wonder if IF is worth practicing anymore. I'm pretty adapted to this way of eating and don't usually get hungry until around 5pm-6pm, occasionally earlier. I also find it easier to hit my macros this way compared to trying to spread them out throughout the day. The health benefits seem worth it, I'm just not sure if I want to do IF anymore. Any and all feedback is appreciated.

    I went from 16:8 to 20:4 to OMAD pretty quickly. I like it, because I practice what my skinny 7 year old learned on his own... he just eats when he is hungry. Turns out I am only actually hungry once a day.
    Having said that, what has really worked for me is 20:4 or OMAD per day depending on whether I am working out, and then on weekends 16:8 if there are events I need to either be social at or avoid by eating before or after. Kids birthday parties at say 11am are killers for me because I am "just hungry enough" to make a bad decision, so I make a pound of bacon that morning before I go.

Some common ways we use baking soda around the house. If I'm breaking out bicarbonate of soda at 2am, I'm usually drinking it down to combat indigestion and a poor food choice...like say, a Mexican Buffet--which is never a good idea. We keep baking soda in 4 different spots in the house and use it quite often, mostly for cleaning pots and pans and countertops, along with baking, deodorizing, brushing our teeth, and the occasional heartburn --and there are many more uses...sodium bicarbonate is kinda like the aspirin of the kitchen.

    Has anyone ever heard of this???
    I was talking with my sister today and she told me my tongue was black! I went and checked it out and sure enough, it looked like I had eaten licorice (which I hadn't).
    I was able to brush it off, but it was like a black mossy growth on my tongue.
    I'm thinking maybe because I haven't eaten real food. Today I had Water, Jello, Protein drink (chococlate flavor) and Water and some chicken broth.
    I talked to a friend today, and she said it happened once to her after she had some Pepto Bismal.
    It was really weird. I"m going the the dr. tomorrow and I"ll ask her about it.
    I was just wondering if anyone else had this happen to them, and when and why.

  2. DonnaB

    I've had the black tongue - after taking Pepto Bismol. I had no idea Pepto did that and it scared the crap out of me.

  3. Wheetsin

    appto Bismol is known to cause it (actually it's a reaction with Pepto's active ingredient). I don't take it but DH takes the pills occasionally, and it says on the bottom that it may cause temporary -- tongue blackening.
    Did you take Pepto?
    If you didn't, did you eat anything extra high in Iron?
    If not, and even if so, mention it to your doc. It can be a symptom of some other issues.

All The Health Miracle Recipes With Water, Vinegar And Baking Soda

All the Health Miracle Recipes with Water, Vinegar and Baking Soda It may seem like wishful thinking that simple pantry staples like water vinegar and baking soda could cure you of your ills, but in many situations they can. The particular kind of vinegar that will give you the most health benefits is unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV. Unfiltered ACV can be purchased from health food stores, larger supermarkets and online. The most well known and most trusted brand of ACV is Braggs. As for the baking soda, thats the regular inexpensve box of Arm and Hammer that you can find in any grocery store. Apple Cider Vinegar What Is It And What Can It Do? ACV is made by crushing apples which squeezes out the juice. Bacteria and Yeast are added to the juice to initiate the alcoholic fermentation process which converts the sugars into alcohol. In a second round of fermentation the alcohol is converted into vinegar by acetic acid-forming bacteria. Unpasteurized and unfiltered apple cider vinegar retains the mother which is the culture of beneficial bacteria that turns apple cider into vinegar in the first place. Its the presence of this culture which gives ACV the unique properties that ot Continue reading >>

    3 This is my topic for this week in nursing school, respiratory & metabolic acidosis/ alkalosis. I am having trouble breaking it down. Can someone please help me understand this please? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Normal values:
    PH = 7.35 - 7.45
    C02 = 35 - 45
    HC03 = 21-26
    Respiratory acidosis = low ph and high C02
    hypoventilation (eg: COPD, narcs or sedatives, atelectasis)
    *Compensated by metabolic alkalosis (increased HC03)
    For example:
    ph 7.20 C02 60 HC03 24 (uncompensated respiratory acidosis)
    ph 7.33 C02 55 HC03 29 (partially compensated respiratory acidosis)
    ph 7.37 C02 60 HC03 37 (compensated respiratory acidosis)
    Respiratory alkalosis : high ph and low C02
    hyperventilation (eg: anxiety, PE, pain, sepsis, brain injury)
    *Compensated by metabolic acidosis (decreased HC03)
    examples:
    ph 7.51 C02 26 HC03 25 (uncompensated respiratory alkalosis)
    ph 7.47 C02 32 HC03 20 (partially compensated respiratory alkalosis)
    ph 7.43 C02 30 HC03 19 (compensated respiratory alkalosis)
    Metabolic acidosis : low ph and low HC03
    diabetic ketoacidosis, starvation, severe diarrhea
    *Compensated by respiratory alkalosis (decreased C02)
    examples:
    ph 7.23 C02 36 HC03 14 (uncompensated metabolic acidosis)
    ph 7.31 C02 30 HC03 17 (partially compensated metabolic acidosis)
    ph 7.38 C02 26 HC03 20 (compensated metabolic acidosis)
    Metabloic alkalosis = high ph and high HC03
    severe vomiting, potassium deficit, diuretics
    *Compensated by respiratory acidosis (increased C02)
    example:
    ph 7.54 C02 44 HC03 29 (uncompensated metabolic alkalosis)
    ph 7.50 C02 49 HC03 32 (partially compensated metabolic alkalosis)
    ph 7.44 C02 52 HC02 35 (compensated metabolic alkalosis)
    *Remember that compensation corrects the ph.
    Now a simple way to remember this......
    CO2 = acid, makes things acidic
    HCO3 = base, makes things alkalotic
    Remember ROME
    R-Respiratory
    O-Opposite
    M-Metabolic
    E-Equal
    Ok always look at the pH first...
    pH<7.35 = acidosis
    pH>7.45 = alkalosis
    Then, if the CO2 is high or low, then it is respiratory...If the HCO3 is high or low then it is metabolic. How you remember that is that the respiratory system is involved with CO2 (blowing air off or slowing RR), and the kidneys (metabolic) are involved with HCO3 (excreting or not excreting).
    Here is how you think thru it: pH = 7.25 CO2 = 40 HCO3 = 17
    Ok, first, the pH is low so think acidosis. CO2 is WNL. HCO3 is low. Draw arrows if it helps. The abnormal values are both low (think Equal). Metabolic imbalances are equal. So, this must be metabolic acidosis!
    Now, for compensation...If you have a metabolic imbalance, the respiratory system is going to try to compensate. Respiratory = CO2. If the CO2 is normal in the ABG, then there is no compensation going on. Compensation in acidosis will decrease the CO2 because you want to get rid of the acid (CO2). In alkalosis, it will increase because you want to add more acid (CO2)
    If you have a respiratory imbalance, the kidneys will try to compensate. Kidneys = HCO3. If the HCO3 is normal in the ABG, then there is no compensation going on. Compensation in acidosis will increase HCO3 because you want to hold on to the base to make it more alkalotic. In alkalosis, it will decrease because you want to excrete the base to make it more acidic.

    The kidneys are small, only about the size of a fist, but they perform vital functions that play a role in overall health. Each day, the kidneys filter about 120-150 quarts of blood, to produce 1-2 quarts of urine, filtering waste and extra fluid out of the body. The kidneys prevent the buildup of waste in the body, keep electrolyte levels stable, and make hormones that regulate blood pressure, make blood cells, and maintain strong bones. Many fa ...

    Patients with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) face a much higher risk of succumbing to a deadly fungal infection, known as mucormycosis, than healthy patients. A new study suggests a simple treatment of sodium bicarbonate, or baking soda, could prevent the spread of mucormycosis in patients with DKA. The study, published today in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, found sodium bicarbonate reversed the effects that promoted the spread of mucormyco ...

    114 Comments Insulin does a lot of important things for us. It pulls glucose from the blood and fritters it away into our cells to be burned for energy or stored as glycogen. It prevents hyperglycemic toxicity to neurons, pancreatic cells, the arterial walls and the generation of excessive levels of reactive oxygen species. It even promotes muscle protein synthesis and helps augment muscular hypertrophy, especially following resistance training. ...
