Can Dehydration Cause Lactic Acidosis

Share on facebook

Dehydration occurs when your body has lost more fluid than you have taken in. Remaining hydrated is critical to your overall health. Every cell in your body needs water, along with oxygen, to function properly.

Pediatric Dehydration

Author: Alex Koyfman, MD; Chief Editor: Muhammad Waseem, MBBS, MS, FAAP, FACEP, FAHA more... Dehydration is a common complication of illness observed in pediatric patients presenting to the emergency department (ED). Early recognition and early intervention are important to reduce risk of progression to hypovolemic shock and end-organ failure. In most cases, volume depletion in children is caused by fluid losses from vomiting or diarrhea. On physical examination, combinations of findings can be used to determine the degree of dehydration. Laboratory studies are of limited utility in cases of mild dehydration, but they may be considered under certain conditions and are recommended in patients with more severe dehydration. Mild or moderate volume depletion should be treated with oral rehydration when possible. Intravenous fluid therapy is necessary when oral therapy fails or volume depletion is severe. For patient education information, see the Children's Health Center , as well as Dehydration in Children . The terms dehydration and volume depletion are commonly used interchangeably but they refer to different physiologic conditions resulting from different types of fluid loss. [ 1 Continue reading >>

    Here is the formula for anion gap:
    Agap = Na + K - Cl -CO2
    I would think that the doctor would be monitoring the glucose level (not the agap) to determine when to stop the insulin drip. Anyone else have an idea?

Acute Lactic Acidosis

Author: Bret A Nicks, MD, MHA; Chief Editor: Romesh Khardori, MD, PhD, FACP more... Metabolic acidosis is defined as a state of decreased systemic pH resulting from either a primary increase in hydrogen ion (H+) or a reduction in bicarbonate (HCO3-) concentrations. In the acute state, respiratory compensation of acidosis occurs by hyperventilation resulting in a relative reduction in PaCO2. Chronically, renal compensation occurs by means of reabsorption of HCO3. [ 1 , 2 ] Acidosis arises from an increased production of acids, a loss of alkali, or a decreased renal excretion of acids. The underlying etiology of metabolic acidosis is classically categorized into those that cause an elevated anion gap (AG) (see the Anion Gap calculator) and those that do not. Lactic acidosis, identified by a state of acidosis and an elevated plasma lactate concentration is one type of anion gap metabolic acidosis and may result from numerous conditions. [ 2 , 3 , 4 ] It remains the most common cause of metabolic acidosis in hospitalized patients. The normal blood lactate concentration in unstressed patients is0.5-1 mmol/L. Patients with critical illness can be considered to have normal lactate concen Continue reading >>

    I've wanted a ketonix for a while but am not going to fork over hundreds of dollars. So I followed some advice and got myself a cheap breathalyzer on ebay. Apparently they don't distinguish between alcohol and acetone.
    IT WORKS!
    Now I can measure easily whether or not I am in ketosis anytime I suspect I may have dropped out. The ketostix stopped working for me a long time ago as my body is very well adapted and I don't excrete a lot of measurable ketones.The breathalyzer is not much good for finding your millimoler value of ketones, but then again, by all accounts neither is a ketonix itself. The breathalyzer cost me $12 and you can get them cheaper. In fact, it's only the cheaper ones that work. You can get these breathalyzers as cheap as a few dollars.
    Here's the one I used below

    That reading above is while fully sober... * I swear * Only trouble is it beeps like crazy when it detects 0.05% or over (the legal alcohol driving limit in australia). I'm sure other models wouldn't beep.

    Thanks @yogipete ! This is both interesting and worrisome at the same time!

    I may get a cheap one myself, but in the meantime I'd love to see if others can replicate your results.

  3. yogipete

    My pleasure.

    I might also add that the reading is consistent regardless of my method of blowing etc... which is a problem that haunts the ketonix. I've done a few baseline tests on my partnerr who always blows 0 (she's currently non-keto) while I generally blow between .04 and .05 (but in any one moment of the day the reading is always identical regardless of my personal clumsiness in using the meter). I'm looking forward to testing some more non-keto friends.

Can Dehydration Cause Acid-base Metabolism Disorders?

Can dehydration cause acid-base metabolism disorders? Severe dehydration can cause both types of acid-base metabolism disorders, known as metabolic acidosis and metabolic alkalosis. If you or your child has symptoms of severe dehydration, you should seek emergency medical care immediately.

    I vaguely remember our CDE saying this on diagnosis day #1 but I don't have a container in front of me to check. My daughter's school nurse just called and said she thought she smelled ketones on her breath but she checked and the strip said negative. She's been high all week - we've see maybe 3 readings in the 100s which is very abnormal for her. Thought she was getting sick at first, then we had 3 problems with bubbles in the pump tubing, and now this. Her lunch reading was 298.
    Thanks!

    The urine strips have an expiration date from when you opened them- due to being exposed to air. It should say it on the side of the bottle.
    Blood strips- the date is on the box, I think the foil wrapper too, but I thought the meter wouldn't take them if they were expired.

    Blood strips- the date is on the box, I think the foil wrapper too, but I thought the meter wouldn't take them if they were expired. I agree with Lanae. The urine strips if I recall was 6 months after opening (or 3) and the blood ketones simply won't work after expiration. Which ticks me off - on 1/1/08 I tried to use a 12/31/07 strip and I got a big fat error.

We all produce lactic acid when breaking down sugar at times of stress and when we exercise vigorously. In some circumstances, too much lactic acid can build up in the blood. This happens particularly in situations where there is not enough oxygen in the blood, or the kidneys are not filtering out lactic acid as they should be. Examples of these ...
