Effects Of Lactic Acidosis

Share on facebook

If you have a hard time feeling your pecs working when you bench press, THIS is for you. It's an excellent technique for forcing the pecs into a better position to contract when doing a bench press...and this will help you build a bigger chest faster! http://www.thebestchestexercises.com To use this technique, you'll need a bench and a single square Step riser/platform...(you'll likely have to raid the cardio section of your gym to find one of these). I got mine for dirt cheap at a garage sale and found it to be an extremely versatile piece of training equipment, beyond just doing stepping exercises. The elevation of the upper back forces the chest to expand due to the arch in the lower back. This helps get your shoulders back, which reduces their involvement in the press. (I also find that because my head is not pressing into the bench, the base of support is primarily the upper back, which tends to load the pecs a bit more effectively.) So essentially, instead of your chest being in a flat, pancake position (which can easily happen when pressing for more than 1 rep), your chest is puffed out and your pecs are in a MUCH better anatomical position to contract through the entire set

    I am wondering if anybody experience kidney pain and generally kidney problems on paleo/primal especially in keto? I restarted primal maybe 6-7 months ago after my 2nd baby. As I was breastfeeding I was started with relatively higher carb version 175 g carb and slowly dropped the carbs first to 150 g, than 125 g , than 100 g than 85 g and I am around 65-75g ( net 40-50g) since November 1st when I started Whole 30. Maybe because of breastfeeding, ketostix started to show trace amount around 100-110g carb level, and constantly medium level since I am below 85 g, and now sometimes shows large amount of ketones. I am eating around 100 g (+/-15g) protein, which is really medium and not high level as I am 205lb and LBM is 125 lb, and I eat this or higher level than this for years.
    About a week or 10 days ago( 1 week into whole 30), I started to have some minor dull back pain. First I didn't make much of it, as I though uncomfortable sleep or carrying too much my 20+ lb baby or sometimes lift my 45 lb kindergardener is the source. Over the last week the pain became stronger and stronger , and now it is really clear that it is not my back, but actually my kidneys. I used to have lots of kidney troubles as small child, but had a urethra surgery when I was almost 8 yrs old, and never had any problems with my kidneys for the past 30 years not even during pregnancies. In any case initially I was a bit uneasy about the whole ketosis thing due to my past kidney troubles, but weight loss was not really happening, so I went for it. I have a drs appointment tomorrow and I am not sure what to tell my Dr about my eating habits.
    We all know that paleo and especially keto lifestyle is not really supported by general practitioners. If I tell my dr about paleo and keto, I am sure she would tell me to stop regardless if it is actually related or not. But actually it may be the cause of my kidney problems.
    I would appreciate any advice or experience you can share.

    No clue--I hope you get some answers!

    Some thoughts:
    1. Try to find a new doctor. As you stated yourself, she's probably not going to support Paleo/keto and will likely jump to blame that instead of looking for the true underlying cause. Protein is generally the culprit in kidney issues that stem from macronutrients, not fat. As long as your protein didn't increase, it shouldn't really be a factor.
    2. Since you have a history of kidney troubles, it is possible the protein amount you're eating is too much for you now that your diet has changed, especially if you're not doing strength training (and actually putting that protein to good use). It might be worth trying to cut down on it. Make sure you're drinking enough water, too.
    3. A quick search on keto and kidney pain turns up some comments from people that too much starch aggravates their kidney issues. It might be worth revisiting the source of your carbs and try keeping them to non-starchy sources and maybe dropping them a little more.
    4. Kidney pain also has other sources, such as kidney stones. These are often build ups of minerals (most often, calcium). They're painful, but for the most part, can be passed with no long term damage. Just make sure to drink plenty of water. ( http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/kidney-stones/DS00282/DSECTION=causes ) Also, see if you're taking in too much calcium. One of the biggest fears people (especially women) have when going Paleo is the amount of calcium in the diet due to the reduction or elimination of dairy products. Dr. Cordain has mentioned in some of his books that calcium intake isn't as important as calcium absorption and the balance between calcium and potassium, and the Paleo diet removes a lot of the compounds that inhibit calcium absorption, and can increase consumption of potassium. So, it might be worth, again, looking at what you're eating (and supplements) and seeing whether you're eating too much calcium.
    5. Are you absolutely sure it's kidney pain? One thing I learned recently is that there's a supporting muscle that runs from the spine, through the pelvic bone, and to the inner thigh. In Yoga at least, it's known as the Psoas muscle and is also the top part of the hip flexors. Mine's injured right now, and lifting anything of enough weight to engage that area is something that aggravates it. The pain, for me, goes deeper than the typical back muscle pain, and isn't helped by the typical muscle pain relief methods, so it's still sometimes difficult for me to believe that it's muscle pain, despite diagnosis from my GP and confirmation from a physical therapist.

Type B Lactic Acidosis: A Rare But Life Threatening Hematologic Emergency. A Case Illustration And Brief Review

Type B lactic acidosis: a rare but life threatening hematologic emergency. A case illustration and brief review Wederson M Claudino ,* Ajoy Dias ,* William Tse ,* and Vivek R Sharma * Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology, James Graham Brown Cancer Center, University of Louisville Health Sciences Center, Louisville, Kentucky, USA Address correspondence to: Dr. Vivek R Sharma, Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology, James Graham Brown Cancer Center, 529 South Jackson Street, Louisville, Kentucky 40202, USA. E-mail: [email protected] Major strides have been made in improving the treatment of medical emergencies associated with malignancies. Nonetheless, metabolic emergencies in cancer patients can often times be life-threatening. Type B lactic acidosis is a rare but potentially fatal paraneoplastic phenomenon that has been described in association with hematologic and solid malignancies and portends a poor prognosis if not rapidly recognized and treated. It is believed that this occurs as a result of cancer cells switching their glucose metabolism from an oxidative oxygen- dependent pathway towards a glycolytic phenotype, also known as the Warburg effect.

    I've been eating almost fully primal since the beginning of August to try to correct some health issues. Before I started my period was completely regular, a 28 day cycle with very little variation each month. My period came normally at the end of August, but my September period came 11 days late in the beginning of October, and my November period hasn't come yet. I also got cystic jawline acne right before the late period, and I don't usually get cysts.
    Is this normal? I thought eating primally is supposed to make hormones more regular, but it seems to be doing something weird to mine. My weight hasn't really changed, so I don't think that is the cause. I'm not pregnant, either.
    I eat eggs, ground beef, lamb chops and neck, chicken, canned salmon and sardines, Kerrygold butter, chard, kale, collards, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, coconut milk and oil, shredded coconut, some baker's chocolate, and berries. I will rarely have a few small Yukon golds or some white rice. Not much else. All of it is organic/free range/grass-fed/whatever. I supplement with 5000 IU of Vit. D, 30mg of zinc, 100 mcg of Selenium, and 400 mg of Magnesium.
    Am I doing something wrong here, or am I being paranoid?

    A high fat low carb diet can wreck hormonal havoc in some women. Chronic low carb(<100g/day) states can be particularly stressful for some women's bodies.
    What is your exercise like? Even though you state that your weight hasn't really changed, your post doesn't specify, but are you eating with weight loss as a goal? In some women, the "stress" alone of dieting thoughts can alter menstruation.
    Any increased stress in your life?

    I get maybe 20g of carbs from berries and probably another 20-30g from veggies per day. I don't intentionally limit them, that's just how it works out; I'm not sure how I could get more carbs in my belly without eating more potatoes and rice, as the veggies fill me up far too quickly. I'm only 94 lbs at 5'1", so weight GAIN is my goal right now. Why does low carb mess with hormones?
    My exercise is a lot of walking; I take public transportation and walk lots to get to bus stops. I also work a fairly active job part time where I'm on my feet all day and lift heavy things at least a few times each shift. Stress is very slightly more than normal, but that hasn't had any real effect on my cycle before. This is puzzling.

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 >>

    Hi All, First I would like to mention that I've been on a low carb diet for over 3 months now (strictly keto for at least 2 months) and overall I like it so far… Especially the slight increase in energy, less gas and constipation(!), more balanced energy throughout the day, and possibly a reduction in plaque buildup on my teeth (they are mostly white after a cleaning over 4 months ago!). I also read posts on Reddit Keto almost every day and I must say this is a great resource for people to go to for figuring out their ailments and learning more about their bodies.
    I’ve been doing intermittent fasting, of 16 hours fast and 8 hours feast by skipping breakfast, for the last week. I’m 5’11” and usually hover between 145-150 lbs., but the last couple days I’ve been at 145 lbs., so hopefully I’m burning fat with IF… Also, in case anyone asks, I did read the FAQ and am having at least the recommended electrolyte intake, if that matters at all.
    This week I got a blood test done after being on a food fast for 14.5 hours – blood was sent to a testing lab: Test: measurement (Reference range) Glucose: 89 mg/dL (70-99) Beta Hydroxybutyrate: 1.78 mmol/L (0-0.3) BUN: 11 mg/dL (8-21) Creatinine: 0.79 mg/dL (0.7-1.3) Sodium: 137 mmol/L (136-145) Potassium: 4.6 mmol/L (3.5-5.1) Chloride: 97 mmol/L (98-107) Carbon Dioxide: 24 mmol/L (23-29) Anion Gap: 16 mmol/L (6-16) Calcium: 9.8 mg/dL (8.4-10.4) Protein Total – Blood: 7.5 gm/dL (6.3-8.3) Albumin Level: 4.8 gm/dL (3.5-5.0) Bilirubin Total: 0.6 mg/dL (0.2-1.0) AST: 31 units/L (9-45) Alkaline Phosphatase: 104 units/L (40-129) ALT: 48 units/L (8-63) Cholesterol: 382 mg/dL (<199) Triglyceride: 78 mg/dL (<149) HDL: 87 mg/dL (>40) Non-HDL: 295 mg/dL (<159) **LDL Chol, Calc: 279 mg/dL (<129)** **Chol/HDL: 4.4 (<6)** GFP other male: 112 (>60) C-Reactive Protein (CRP): 0.1 mg/dL (<0.5) Glycosylated Hgb: 4.6 % A1c (<5.9) Estimated Average Glucose: 85 mg/dL Thyroid Stimulating Hormone: 3.03 mIU/L (0.27-3.5)
    I’m also including a test from when I was having a high carb low fat diet - also during a 12+ hour fast. 2014-January; blood drawn from the arm and sent to a lab for testing (same lab as keto test): Glucose: 92 mg/dL Total Cholesterol: 181 mg/dL Triglycerides: 51 mg/dL HDL 83 mg/dL LDL 88 mg/dL
    When my doctor emailed me the keto diet blood test results he just said that my LDL was very high and that I should reduce my fat intake. I’ve seen that people look at the absolute values of HDL and LDL alone or calculate ratios like Cholesterol/HDL to use as indicators of heart disease risk. My LDL (and therefore Total Cholesterol) is very high but my Cholesterol/HDL or Triglyceride/HDL seems good. I’ve also seen that a total cholesterol of over 300 mg/dL is not good.
    I don’t count my total daily carb intake, but instead avoid foods that have lots of carbs as I’m choosing what to eat. My daily intake of carbs is probably ~15-30g/day; protein is around 60-80 g/day; fat is taken until I’m satisfied. I try to avoid processed foods in general and eat lots of veggies (raw and cooked). I also eat on average 2-3 eggs per day with yolk. The types of fats I have primarily are coconut oil, butter, and olive oil (not necessarily in the order based on consumption), but if I cook chicken or other meats I’ll eat the skin and drippings.
    TL/DR: What do you guys think about my new blood test results? Is there any way to lower my LDL? Should I get additional testing done? I’m not entirely convinced that I’m in bad shape just based on my LDL. I heard that on Keto your fasting glucose should be below 80 mg/dL - would this be a problem for me? Thanks!

    If I was you, I'd closely count my food for a while, whislt still making the same food decisions. People are generally really bad at estimating their food intake.
