Metabolic Acidosis

Metabolic acidosis is a condition that occurs when the body produces excessive quantities of acid or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body. If unchecked, metabolic acidosis leads to acidemia, i.e., blood pH is low (less than 7.35) due to increased production of hydrogen ions by the body or the inability of the body to form bicarbonate (HCO3−) in the kidney. Its causes are diverse, and its consequences can be serious, including coma and death. Together with respiratory acidosis, it is one of the two general causes of acidemia. Terminology : Acidosis refers to a process that causes a low pH in blood and tissues. Acidemia refers specifically to a low pH in the blood. In most cases, acidosis occurs first for reasons explained below. Free hydrogen ions then diffuse into the blood, lowering the pH. Arterial blood gas analysis detects acidemia (pH lower than 7.35). When acidemia is present, acidosis is presumed. Signs and symptoms[edit] Symptoms are not specific, and diagnosis can be difficult unless the patient presents with clear indications for arterial blood gas sampling. Symptoms may include chest pain, palpitations, headache, altered mental status such as sev Continue reading >>

    I've been using the ReliOn ketone test strips since I started Atkins to test for ketosis and my question is, where do I want my ketone level to be on the Atkins diet? My reading is usally "small" to "moderate", should it be higher or is that where I want my ketone level to be?
    Thanks in advance,
    Lyna

    I lost over 100 lbs on Atkins and the ketostix never changed color so, I may not be the ideal person to answer your question
    There are a lot of factors that affect the strips....how much water you drink, how much fat you're eating etc.
    I personally wouldn't be too concerned about the level they are showing as long as you are losing weight and obviously you are! Good job! Keep up the good work!

    Too many ketones can put you into ketoacidosis, which can be deadly. While this is usually seen with diabetics, I would be careful and ask your doctor what your level should be. I would guess (and it's only a guess) that anything higher than moderate is or can be dangerous.

Want a chronic kidney disease stage 3 diet? Try this for a chronic kidney disease stage 3 diet click here http://kidney.diethere.net/kidney-dis... - the best diet for kidney disease Read the testimonials from other followers of the kidney diet secrets. These are all extracts from testimonials that people who have used the Kidney diet to drastically change their lives and regained health; The Kidney Diet Secrets Guide Book was easy enough for an active guy like me to follow. It took sometime, but I managed to do it. No more kidney stones for 3 years. I know it will never come back once you really beat the root cause. This book taught me to get rid of kidney stones right from the roots. I was diagnosed with acute renal failure 7 months ago. I thought it was the end for me as the doctor's tone of voice implied. I did my research, and came across your guide. That was one of the best days in my life....being a business consultant, I had to travel a lot by land and by air...I thought I would never be able to follow the Kidney Diet Secrets guide but I was wrong. 11 months after, I'm still easily eating kidney-healthy diet and it never took control of my life. Thanks again! My family and I used to be very frustrated because the doctors wouldn't give us enough information for my father who has kidney failure for 3 years. 'eat a low protein diet' is never enough. How low is low? etc. This book solved everything about that. Now my father does not experience fatigue and is as happy as ever. Thanks!" I had chronic kidney disease (CKD) for 6 years before I got a hold of this book. Few weeks later after I had my regularly scheduled laboratory test for kidney function, my doctor was amazed my kidneys were progressing. It continues until today after all these months. I really am thankful to have come across this amazing guide. Easily the Best book in Kidney Disease anywhere. And the recipes included are simply the best! I had to endure having high blood pressure since I was 40, diagnosed with acute renal failure a few months later and I was advised to get ready for dialysis by my doctor. After having through your book and following your advise, It's been 1 year and 5 months I still haven't undergone dialysis. I owe it to you and your diet method Rachelle. Thank you. My Doctor Was Amazed...I promised to give you a testimonial if it worked for me. And surely enough.. it did!...the doctor was amazed how my creatinine got back to normal range pretty quickly. Everything is laid out in an easy and understandable manner. Not a single medical jargon! I definitely recommend the book to anyone with chronic kidney disease - even if you only get a couple of tips from it, they have got to be the tips that will save you from dialysis or a transplant! Glad I found your guide! "Its a Must for Kidney Patients..." This book, in my opinion, is a must for kidney patients. It wasn't easy at first, but I'm very much used to it now. Well written and easy to understand, it gave me a much better understanding of CKD and what I need to do to live a longer and healthier life. Dialysis is not something I want to experience. For those seeking information on Kidney Disease and how to best deal with it, the biggest frustration is the lack of good information available. The author explains why not much has been done about educating the public with kidney disease. A lot of good information I haven't found anywhere up until today! "GFR Shoot up in a few weeks!" The book spells out how diet and restricting certain foods can stop and even reverse kidney disease. I had a blood test done and found that my GFR was only 26 - Stage 4 Kidney Disease - that was a huge shock to me since it went from above 60 down to 26 in five months! That was a huge motivator for me to do try out the Kidney Diet Secrets and it worked! You need to check out the Kidney Diet for yourself and you can do it RISK FREE.

The use of this website is governed by the UpToDate Terms of Use ©2018 UpToDate, Inc. All topics are updated as new evidence becomes available and our peer review process is complete. INTRODUCTION — Most individuals produce approximately 15,000 mmol (considerably more with exercise) of carbon dioxide and 50 to 100 meq of nonvolatile acid each day. Acid-base balance is maintained by normal elimination of carbon dioxide by the lungs (which affects the partial pressure of carbon dioxide [PCO2]) and normal excretion of nonvolatile acid by the kidneys (which affects the plasma bicarbonate concentration). The hydrogen ion concentration of the blood is determined by the ratio of the PCO2 and plasma bicarbonate concentration. (See "Simple and mixed acid-base disorders", section on 'Introduction'.) Acidosis associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) will be discussed in this topic. An overview of simple acid-base disorders an Continue reading >>

    Hi guys! Could someone answer how does acetoacetate change the pH? I mean, if it is released in ionized form (COO-) how can it change the pH of blood? I cant understand, where does it get protonized? Sorry for my English

  2. Dr. Stalker

    Ketone bodies can contribute to blood pH changes. Specifically, they acidify the blood by donating protons. In organic chemistry/biochemistry you'll learn that a substance doesn't necessarily need to have a -COOH to have acidic properties. It just so happens the hydrogen in the -COOH is very acidic and there's many reasons why. Without diving into all of those, the H in -OH can sometimes be acidic.
    To answer your question specifically about ketones, look at the carboxyl group. If we look at the carbons attached to the carbon that is double bonded to the oxygen, we have an opportunity for resonance. If we deprotonate the carbon adjacent to the carbon in the ketone functional group, those electrons can form a double bond to the carbon and push the one of the double bonds onto the oxygen leading to resonance stability.
    I unfortunately couldn't find a better image than this one (ignore the fact that this has two ketone functional groups)

  3. AlexBest96

    Dr. Stalker, so ketones are not protonized in mitochondria and get in blood in COOH form? they change the pH in ionized form by the mechanism, which you explain?

What Is Renal Failure: In this video, We will share information about what is renal failure - how to identify renal failure - symptoms of renal failure. Subscribe to our channel for more videos. Watch: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivQE7...) How to Identify Renal Failure Renal failure, also known as kidney failure, is a condition that can take two different forms: acute, when it presents itself very suddenly, and chronic, when it develops slowly over at least three months. Acute kidney failure has the potential to lead to chronic renal failure. During both types of renal failure your kidneys arent able to perform the necessary functions your body needs to stay healthy. Despite this similarity between types, the causes, symptoms, and treatments for the two kinds of renal failure vary significantly. Learning about the symptoms and causes of this disease and being able to differentiate between the two forms can be beneficial if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with renal failure.

8.3 Acidosis And Renal Failure

Metabolic acidosis occurs with both acute and chronic renal failure and with other types of renal damage. The anion gap may be normal or may be elevated. If the renal damage affects both glomeruli and tubules, the acidosis is a high-anion gap acidosis. It is due to failure of adequate excretion of various acid anions due to the greatly reduced number of functioning nephrons. If the renal damage predominantly affects the tubules with minimal glomerular damage, a different type of acidosis may occur. This is called Renal Tubular Acidosis (RTA) and this is a normal anion gap or hyperchloraemic type of acidosis. The GFR may be normal or only minimally affected. The acidosis occurring in uraemic patients 1 is due to failure of excretion of acid anions (particularly phosphate and sulphate) because of the decreased number of nephrons. There is a major decrease in the number of tubule cells which can produce ammonia and this contributes to uraemic acidosis. Serious acidosis does not occur until the GFR has decreased to about 20 mls/min. This corresponds to a creatinine level of about 0.30-0.35 mmols/l. The plasma bicarbonate in renal failure with acidosis is typically between 12 & 20 mmol Continue reading >>

    Maybe something we can add to the FAQ?
    I find myself frequently defending my decision and recommendations to eat a healthy ketogenic diet for reasons other than pure fat loss. Do we have a list compiled of all the known and potential health benefits of choosing this lifestyle? Or, does someone know of a web link that provides such info? I see it scattered everywhere but never it all listed out in one place.
    Thinking of stuff like this: * Fat loss * Improved endurance performance * Epilepsy treatment * Benefits to diabetics * Cancer treatment * Etc...
    With links to studies/evidence of each point... I find a lot of info in youtube videos, but nobody seems to ever watch a video I recommend so it's hard to use them in a discussion.
    Thoughts, ideas or already existing links?
    Thanks!
