Acidosis Of The Blood (metabolic Acidosis) / Respiratory Acidosis Information

- - - - - - - - - - - - Back toTop - - - - - - - - - - - - Acidosis of the blood occurs when the body is overly acidic and has lost its alkaline reserves. Acidosis occurs when blood pH drops below 7.4. Dietary measures are critical because the body is more susceptible to illness and disease in an overly acidic state. Respiratory acidosis occurs when the lungs cannot remove all of the carbon dioxide (a normal by-product of metabolism) produced by the body. This causes a disturbance of the acid-base balance in which body fluids become excessively acidic. In chronic respiratory acidosis, mild impairment of the ability of the lungs to remove carbon dioxide occurs over a long period of time, leading to an unstable situation. This is because the kidneys increase their retention of bicarbonate to maintain an acid-base balance in the blood that is almost normal. In severe cases, the carbon dioxide builds up very quickly, leading to severe disturbances in the acid-base balance of the blood, i.e. blood acidosis. - - - - - - - - - - - - Back to Top - - - - - - - - - - - - Acidosis of the blood and bodily fluids often occurs as a result of improper diet.

    Hello,
    The first week, of second or third day I noticed I had a funny taste in my mouth.
    I'm now in my second week and it seems to be more consistent. Does anyone have any advice or tips on the whole breathe issue while on Phase 1 of ideal protein?
    I'm brushing more often which helps a tad, but the taste lingers on. Just yesterday my husband asked "Why does your breathe smell weird?" I said:"Does it smell like garlic?" Even though I knew I had not eaten any- he said "no, it's just a weird smell." And I can taste a weird after taste in my mouth. Especially after I have a shake, bar or my dinner.
    Has anyone else experienced this? Normally I would pop a gum in my mouth or a mint- but I can't do that on this program. hmmmm maybe I should buy some fresh mint...
    Any tips/advice???? I have a family get together BBQ today & I would hate the thought of someone smelling my breathe! :/
    Thank you!!!

    I think that could be the ketosis. I would recommend getting some toothpaste and mouthwash for better breath. Also..get a tongue cleaner..that helps also..and gargle. Good luck.

    I think I'm going to have to carry the mouth wash with me, because like I mentioned brushing helps (of course) as does the mouth wash, but it's a temporary fix... I hope this fades with time...
    Thank you
