Can You Have Metabolic Acidosis And Alkalosis At The Same Time?

Alkalosis

Your blood is made up of acids and bases. The amount of acids and bases in your blood can be measured on a pH scale. It’s important to maintain the correct balance between acids and bases. Even a slight change can cause health problems. Normally, your blood should have a slightly higher amount of bases than acids. Alkalosis occurs when your body has too many bases. It can occur due to decreased blood levels of carbon dioxide, which is an acid. It can also occur due to increased blood levels of bicarbonate, which is a base. This condition may also be related to other underlying health issues such as low potassium, or hypokalemia. The earlier it’s detected and treated, the better the outcome is. Acid-base balance » There are five main types of alkalosis. Respiratory alkalosis Respiratory alkalosis occurs when there isn’t enough carbon dioxide in your bloodstream. It’s often caused by: hyperventilation, which commonly occurs with anxiety high fever lack of oxygen salicylate poisoning being in high altitudes Metabolic alkalosis Metabolic alkalosis develops when your body loses too much acid or gains too much base. This can be attributed to: excess vomiting, which causes electr Continue reading >>

    I'm always thinking and questioning, and this has been on my mind since I did IP last year. Just looking for the facts.
    So we all know cheese is not allowed on IP. I watched an IP video yesterday about dairy and it said it was because the lactose in dairy products can interfere with ketosis.
    But my understanding is that hard cheeses don't have lactose AND Atkins allows cheese, right? And Atkins does put you into ketosis, right?
    So if cheese does not affect ketosis, I wonder why it isn't allowed? Of course it's high in fat and calories, but if it was limited to one ounce per day (with a reduction in the amount of lean protein), would that really affect weight loss and ketosis?
    Just curious about the facts.

    From personal experience, not all cheese is equal. I don't monitor ketosis, but I've found that very sharp cheddar will suppress appetite far better than mozzarella or swiss.
    I'm surprised to hear that cheese isn't allowed on IP. It's usually a good choice for low carbers. I suppose lactose is a form a sugar and could affect some people. Kind of mysterious!!!
    You could always find out what's true for you by monitoring your ketosis state while eating cheese or by keeping track of how how long different cheeses keep you from being hungry (calories being equal). 300 cals of mozzarella = 2 hours; 300 cals of sharp cheddar = 3.5 hours, etc.

    Just curious about the facts. As far as I understand cheese does not interfere with ketosis, providing you keep your carbs in the 40-50 range. Some coaches do allow substituting cheese for your daily milk allowance. I have found that eating a piece of hard cheese triggers hunger and cravings. I believe this is at least part of the reason they don't allow it. Every time I have gotten off track with IP it started with adding cheese.
