Acidosis, Ph Imbalances Problems And Solutions

What happens in the body when your pH is off? The human body needs to take in the right amount of acidic and alkalizing nutrients to maintain a healthy pH balance. Your daily intake should be 20% acidic and 80% alkalizing. If this balance is not maintained, the body has to compensate in the following ways. It first robs minerals from the bones, joints, muscles, gallbladder and mucousal lining of the digestive track. When the body robs calcium from the bones you can develop a weak back. If Ieft untreated, this can develop into Osteoporosis (low bone density). Robbing calcium and sodium from the joints can cause them to start to lock up, get stiff, sore and/or crack. After a time, the immune system often attacks acid which may settle in the joints. A doctor would probably diagnose this as "arthritis". Minerals robbed from the muscles, ligaments, and tendons increase the likelihood of an injury or tear. Acid deposited in the muscles can cause fibromyalgia, soreness and/or stiffness. Minerals robbed from the heart muscle can cause weakening, arrhythmia and angina. If the body needs to rob minerals from the lining of the intestinal track, or if the body tries to eliminate acid through Continue reading >>

    I understand that the guidelines state "uncontrolled" should be coded as hyperglycemia. What about the DKA type 2 portion? We have 2 opinions in our office and I am just looking for the correct way to code it.
    I suspect for my scenario E11.65, E11.69 and E87.2. Please help.
    There really should be an E11.1X...LOL!!
    Thank you,

    Ketoacidosis is actually rare in a type 2 diabetic so that may be the reason for no specific code for it. So use the E11.69 with the E87.2

Anion gap usmle - anion gap metabolic acidosis normal anion gap metabolic acidosis


Acidosis is the reduction of the alkali reserve, due to an excess of acid-forming foods which are incompletely oxidized or poorly eliminated. This leads to the cause of stomach disorders. As Otto Mausert, N.D., states in his book Herbs (Elaine M. Mhur, Eugene, Oregon 97402), the body needs sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Acidosis is the depletion of these alkali reserves. [HHH p.26] Loss of appetite, headaches, sleeplessness, acid urine, acid or strong perspiration, acid mouth, sour stomach, lassitude and vomiting. [HHH p.26] "Stomach disorders--There are different diseases caused by acidosis coming under this heading, but the direct cause is the same for almost all of them. Eating fast, improper chewing, overloading, and eating the wrong kinds of food, are generally responsible for the troubles. The bad habits must be abandoned in order to affect a cure, as there is no medicine that can chew the food properly, or stop anybody from overloading, or prevent one from eating things that are hard to digest. Food that is not properly masticated is retained longer in the stomach than it should be. As a result, it turns sour and ferments, creating an excessive amount of acid an Continue reading >>

    Your first, best, and cheapest option is not to use them.
    Ketostix do not measure what many people expect that they do.
    Ketostix only measure excess levels of acetoacetate, which is not the type of ketones that correlate with nutritional ketosis.
    Ketostix may show negative ketones when your blood ketones are high and then may show positive ketones when your blood ketones are low.
    Misinterpretation of what they show is one of the most common unnecessary causes of keto anxiety and wasted time. You can be perfectly successful on a ketogenic or low-carb diet without ever measuring ketones.
    Many people are already overwhelmed with learning about keto diets. Adding another layer of unnecessary complexity doesn't help the matter. Often, people are most successful on keto when they treat it as a lifestyle and not a diet. Obsessively measuring ketones can be at odds with attempting to live a keto lifestyle.
    If you decide to use Ketostix anyway, please be kind to those who answer questions here by not submitting a question that begins with I know that Ketostix are unreliable, but ...
    If you consume few enough carbohydrates and avoid excessive intake of protein, you can trust that your liver will be producing ketones within a single day. That is how human metabolism works.
    If you consume too many carbs, you will be kicked out of ketosis temporarily. However, if you once again restrict carbs, you will go right back into ketosis within 24 hours. This is because the liver can store only 100 grams of glycogen. If you restrict carbs, the liver will run out of glycogen within a day and begin burning fat instead. The liver produces ketones as a side effect of burning fat.
    As an example of how Ketostix can be misleading, it is possible to eat a high-carbohydrate meal followed by a positive Ketostix result. You may think that you cheated the system, but you didn't. It takes time for excess ketones to appear in urine. Ketostix are showing you what happened in the past before you cheated.
    If you have the time and really want to know why Ketostix will not tell you much, read pages 164 and 165 of The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living by Volek and Phinney. This is the section headed by Ketones: To Measure or Not.
    If you do not have this book, read this summary:
    Ketostix were designed to help diabetics avoid ketoacidosis which is a dangerous condition involving very high blood sugar and very high serum ketones. If you have near normal blood sugar and serum ketone levels consistent with nutritional ketosis, you don't need to worry about this.
    Ketostix only measure excess levels of acetoacetate, which is not the type of ketones that correlate with nutritional ketosis.
    The ketones that correlate with nutritional ketosis are known as beta-hydroxybutyrate. This type can be measured only with a blood ketone meter.
    There is a built-in time lag. Ketostix are measuring what has happened in the past since it takes a while for the kidneys to produce urine.
    Exercise can influence how many excess ketones are excreted.
    You can be in nutritional ketosis even when Ketostix show no excess acetoacetate. In the keto-adapted state, very little acetoacetate ketones will be excreted in urine even though blood ketones may be high.
    Note that it takes a period of four to six weeks of being in ketosis every day in order to become keto-adapted. Someone who is keto-adapted has adapted to using fat as the primary fuel for muscles and various organs. The keto-adapted brain uses ketones in place of glucose for most of its energy needs. When keto-adapted, most acetoacetate is not excreted. Instead, muscles convert it to beta-hydroxybutyrate and return it to the blood for use by the brain.
    If after all of this, you still want to use Ketostix because you bought them and cannot bring yourself to throw them away or because they are comforting in some way, here is how they may be useful.
    When you are first starting a low-carb or keto diet and transitioning into ketosis from a moderate to high-carb diet, Ketostix will confirm that your body has in fact done what biology says that it must do. It will show that your liver has begun producing ketones.
    Once you are a few days into the diet, you can give them away to a keto newbie or toss them. Note that Ketostix will eventually expire, especially if you keep them in a moist environment like a bathroom.
    If you have a medical condition that makes monitoring blood ketone levels necessary or if you are a numbers geek with spending money, you may be interested in purchasing a ketone blood meter and test strips for measuring beta hydroxybutyrate in your blood. The test strips cost somewhere between $2 and $5 per strip.
    There are a few meters to choose from.
    Precision Xtra - https://www.abbottdiabetescare.com/products/patient/pxtra-overview.html
    Nova Max Plus - http://www.novacares.com/nova-max-plus/
    CardioChek Home - http://www.healthchecksystems.com/CardioChek.cfm#home
    Most use one of the first two listed (Precision Xtra or Nova Max Plus). Some say that the Precision Xtra is the more accurate of the two. I've found that readings from these two track fairly closely with each other. The Nova Max Plus has cheaper test strips.
    To detect nutritional ketosis, look for a reading between 0.5 and 5.0 mmol / liter. Some experts recommend aiming for a level of 1.0 to 5.0 mmol / liter.
    Another option is the Ketonix Sport breath meter. This meter measures acetate in the breath. It does not require test strips.
    Acetate forms when acetoacetate spontaneously breaks down to acetate. According to Volek and Phinney (page 165 of The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living), it should be linearly correlated with blood ketones. In practice, it is not as accurate as the blood meters in part because it is difficult to breathe in the same way every time you test.
    Ketonix Sport (order direct from Sweden) - https://www.ketonix.com/index.php/product/sport
    Again, remember that you can be perfectly successful on a ketogenic or low-carb diet without ever measuring ketones whether in urine, blood, or breath.
    In the final analysis, ketone concentrations are what they are. Chasing ketone concentrations often becomes as unnecessary and distracting as Ketostix. Unless you are treating epilepsy, cancer, or other medical condition, the concentration of ketones do not matter too much. You can achieve weight loss and a sense of well-being even with lower levels of ketones.
    Focus on how you feel, not on the number. Use ketone meters for interest and experimentation, but don't let the results stress you out.
    tl;dr never, unless you have read and understood this post, yet still want to use them anyway
    [If anyone has any suggestions for improving this post or correcting misinformation, let me know. I'll correct this and re-post it once in a while]

  2. anbeav

    tl;dr never
    If you want to do it for experimentation, go for it but please spare the rest of us the unnecessary ketosis anxiety
    edits: In addition to false negatives, ketostix commonly show false positives as in when people eat a high carb meal and think they cheated biology. Also I might remove the bit about using ketostix to monitor keto-adaptation, just asking for more posts about the issue. Also I might emphasize that people seem to already be overwhelmed with keto when starting and adding another layer of unnecessary complexity doesn't help the matter. People always talk about lifestyle, live a lifestyle and IMO living a lifestyle certainly shouldn't have to include measuring. Lastly, ketone concentrations are what they are. If you want to measure with a blood or breath meter, they are what they are and chasing ketone concentrations often becomes as unnecessary as ketostix. Unless someone has a medical condition for which a particular concentration is required for management, focus on how you feel not the number. Use the meter for interest and experimentation, but don't let it stress you out.

Home Remedies And Herbs For Acidosis

Acidosis is a condition that occurs when your body fluids are too acidic. 1,2 In a healthy body, the lungs and kidneys work to keep your bodys pH around 7.4. If a persons body pH drops below 7.35, they have acidosis. 4 Acidosis is treatable. Without treatment, acidosis can lead to serious health issues including chronic kidney problems, impaired organ function, respiratory failure, shock, or even death. Acidosis is usually associated with lung disease, kidney disease, or diabetic ketoacidosis. 1,2 Respiratory acidosis is a buildup of carbon dioxide in the body due to an inability to breathe. Metabolic acidosis is an inability to eliminate enough acid or to maintain There is a link between metabolic acidosis and potassium and magnesium levels in the body. When potassium and magnesium are deficient, they cannot neutralize the acidity produced by activity. This creates a buildup of acid and impairs certain physiological functions. 3 There are multiple acidosis causes depending on the type of conditions. Respiratory acidosis causes include: Chronic lung diseases like COPD or asthma Overuse of certain types of sedative drugs Metabolic acidosis causes include severe dehydration, diabete Continue reading >>
