Metabolic Acidosis And Its Association With Nutritional Status In Hemodialysis

Metabolic acidosis and its association with nutritional status in hemodialysis Metabolic acidosis is a common problem in dialysis patients and plays an important role in the pathogenesis of protein-energy malnutrition in these patients. To assess the prevalence of metabolic acidosis in hemodialysis and search their association with nutritional status. A cross-sectional study was performed in hemodialysis patients at a single center. Nutritional status was assessed by anthropometric, biochemical and multifrequency bioelectrical impedance analysis. Metabolic acidosis was defined as serum bicarbonate (BIC) < 22 mEq/L and patients were divided into 3 groups according to BIC (< 15.15 to 21.9 and 22). The association between BIC and continuous variables was investigated using the Kruskal Wallis test. The linear correlation between BIC and the variables of the study was also tested. We studied 95 patients, 59% male, mean age 52.3 years. The prevalence of metabolic acidosis was 94.7%. BMI, interdialytic weight gain and PTH were significantly different among the 3 groups of BIC. The BIC was negatively correlated with urea, phosphorus and interdialytic weight gain. There was no significant Continue reading >>

    Ketone Breath

    I'm sitting here at my desk with a very strong odor of acetone on my breath all day. Much more than I've ever noticed before. Previously I'd detect just a trace some mornings when first waking up. I first noticed the heavy scent yesterday, and it continued all yesterday evening, night, and all day today. I guess it's a good sign that I'm likely in ketosis. I wasn't really planning to specifically seek out ketosis until around the end of the month when I expect to reach my target weight, but perhaps now is the time to start and get my body keto adapted sooner rather than later. Anyone have any suggestions for how to deal with this keto breath? I don't normally chew gum but went out and bought some sugarfree gum to see if that helps, but can still notice the scent. I also tried mouthwash, but it seemed to only mask it briefly.
    With how strong I noticed the smell, it got me wondering about something I've often wondered about. Maybe some will think I'm crazy, but given all the dragon lore in cultures around the globe, I've thought that perhaps dragons were real at one point in our history. Not enough of them to leave behind an easy to find fossil trail to prove their existence, but still enough to cause all this folklore. And along with it the stories of fire-breathing dragons. Well, in getting this keto breath, made me wonder if dragons were in a constant state of ketosis, and had some means of generating a spark to ignite their keto breath. Wonder if the fire-breathing dragons were on a ketogenic diet, or just had a bad case of T1 diabetes. Yeah, real crazy idea. Who knows what other wild ideas I'll be coming up with under a ketone powered brain compared to a glucose powered one. I did consider using a lighter near my mouth to see if it would ignite the ketones, but that thought passed in a couple milliseconds, realizing if it did ignite them it might cause some serious damage to my exterior or interior organs.
    My energy level has picked up a notch since I noticed my keto breath. Hopefully it will continue, not only at the present level, but increase even more. Leaving in 3 days on a vacation to the States and plan to pick up a blood ketone meter and strips I ordered, so hopefully it'll confirm my suspicions and allow me to monitor my progress.

    Good idea not trying to set your breath on fire

  3. jim55

    Not everyone experiences keto breath. I never have. Dr Atkins wrote about it in his books. Lack of hunger, water loss/rapid weight loss have always been my two biggest indicaters that my body has switched. I think it will go away on it's own.

Metabolic Acidosis-induced Insulin Resistance And Cardiovascular Risk

Metabolic Acidosis-Induced Insulin Resistance and Cardiovascular Risk We are experimenting with display styles that make it easier to read articles in PMC. The ePub format uses eBook readers, which have several "ease of reading" features already built in. The ePub format is best viewed in the iBooks reader. You may notice problems with the display of certain parts of an article in other eReaders. Generating an ePub file may take a long time, please be patient. Metabolic Acidosis-Induced Insulin Resistance and Cardiovascular Risk Gema Souto, B.S., Cristbal Donapetry, M.D., [...], and Maria M. Adeva, M.D., Ph.D. Microalbuminuria has been conclusively established as an independent cardiovascular risk factor, and there is evidence of an association between insulin resistance and microalbuminuria, the former preceding the latter in prospective studies. It has been demonstrated that even the slightest degree of metabolic acidosis produces insulin resistance in healthy humans. Many recent epidemiological studies link metabolic acidosis indicators with insulin resistance and systemic hypertension. The strongly acidogenic diet consumed in developed countries produces a lifetime acidotic st Continue reading >>

    > Ketosis taste in mouth?

    I caught a glimpse of a thread somewhere mentioning a taste in the mouth that some people get when they are in ketosis....anyone know what I'm talking about?

  2. MorganMac

    Yep, it's rather common. Ketone bodies (such as acetone) are excreted from the body in the breath and urine. Many people get "keto breath" for awhile when they start a LC diet :)

What is BASAL METABOLIC RATE? What does BASAL METABOLIC RATE mean? BASAL METABOLIC RATE meaning - BASAL METABOLIC RATE definition - BASAL METABOLIC RATE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the minimal rate of energy expenditure per unit time by endothermic animals at rest. It is reported in energy units per unit time ranging from watt (joule/second) to ml O2/min or joule per hour per kg body mass J/(hkg)). Proper measurement requires a strict set of criteria be met. These criteria include being in a physically and psychologically undisturbed state, in a thermally neutral environment, while in the post-absorptive state (i.e., not actively digesting food). In bradymetabolic animals, such as fish and reptiles, the equivalent term standard metabolic rate (SMR) is used. It follows the same criteria as BMR, but requires the documentation of the temperature at which the metabolic rate was measured. This makes BMR a variant of standard metabolic rate measurement that excludes the temperature data, a practice that has led to problems in defining "standard" rates of metabolism for many mamma

    Keto acids are organic compounds that contain both a carboxylic acid group and an ketone group (oxo group).
    Ketone bodies is the collective name of the three organic compounds (acetoacetic acid, β-hydroxybutyric acid and acetone) produced from metabolizing fatty acids during fastening, low carbohydrate intake or untreated insulin-dependent diabetes.
    Of these three ketone bodies, only acetoacetic acid is also a keto acid.

  2. Aristo_socrates

    Thanks! That really clears things up. Following this, is it only keto acids (acetoacetic acid and not the others) that are capable of causing ketoacidosis (clinical perspective)?
    Also, as certain amino acids can be converted into ketone bodies, can they also cause ketoacidosis? Assuming ketone bodies and keto acids are capable of causing acidosis.
    EDIT: Just read further into this and both beta-hydroxybutyric acid and acetoacetic acid are capable of causing ketoacidosis. Acetoacetate is unstable and often spontaneously forms acetone, which is volatile and poorly metabolised (giving the characteristic fruity smell in patients with diabetic ketoacidosis). This often presents as respiratory compensation (e.g. hyperventilation) and vomiting can also occur. Just to those also wondering!

  3. MrPandaChao

    You are right that acetone manifests as the fruity breath. The respiratory compensation is due to the lowered pH in the blood stimulating hyperventilation in order to increase pH in the blood by lowering CO2 in the blood (which also acts as an acid in the form of carbonic acid).
    So in essence trying to alleviate the lowered pH due to accumulation of non-volatile acids by reducing the amount of volatile acids in the blood (CO2).
