Causes Of Lactic Acidosis

INTRODUCTION AND DEFINITION Lactate levels greater than 2 mmol/L represent hyperlactatemia, whereas lactic acidosis is generally defined as a serum lactate concentration above 4 mmol/L. Lactic acidosis is the most common cause of metabolic acidosis in hospitalized patients. Although the acidosis is usually associated with an elevated anion gap, moderately increased lactate levels can be observed with a normal anion gap (especially if hypoalbuminemia exists and the anion gap is not appropriately corrected). When lactic acidosis exists as an isolated acid-base disturbance, the arterial pH is reduced. However, other coexisting disorders can raise the pH into the normal range or even generate an elevated pH. (See "Approach to the adult with metabolic acidosis", section on 'Assessment of the serum anion gap' and "Simple and mixed acid-base disorders".) Lactic acidosis occurs when lactic acid production exceeds lactic acid clearance. The increase in lactate production is usually caused by impaired tissue oxygenation, either from decreased oxygen delivery or a defect in mitochondrial oxygen utilization. (See "Approach to the adult with metabolic acidosis".) The pathophysiology and causes Continue reading >>

    HEY ALL!!
    I AM SOOOOO CONFUSED! I know some people don't think that the strips are accurate (their are many things that can effect the out come, how much water are you drinking, yadda, yadda, yadda) I had to try them !. I bought some last night and according to the color I am in Moderate ketosis. This morning I used one and it is the same. The strips go from Zero, Trace, Low, Moderate, to Large. So does the moderate mean that I AM buring fat as fuel or that I am ALMOST buring fat for fuel? The box and directions don't give and explanation for some odd reason.
    HEEEEELP!! Thanks!

    On the side of the bottle, you should see a like a chart to compare it to.... if you are in moderate ketosis then that's good! The more purple the stick, the more fat you are burning for fuel, which is what you want to do on Atkins. You'll notice that with Atkins, the keto strips are like the scale, you wanna see PURPLE when you test becasue the more ketones in your urine, of course the more fat you burn! Sounds like you are doing good...good luck
    P.S. I'm told that with Atkins even a 'trace' of ketones is good... trying going to www dot lowcarbnexus dot com, that site gives you good info... here's what they say about ketosis:
    Ketosis? - As long as we are on the topic, what about ketosis? Ketosis is the state that your body enters into when you are eating mainly protein and fats, and drastically curtailing your consumption of carbohydrates. As Dr. Atkins says, "There is no lipolysis without ketosis, no ketosis without lipolysis." Lipolysis is, essentially, "fat burning." In other words, this is just what we want! We want to force our bodies to consume stored fat for fuel rather than burn primarily our food. This occurs because protein and fat do not "give up" their stored energy as easily as do carbohydrates. As long as you are eating mainly carbs, especially refined sugars, you will find that your body will burn that as opposed to your fat stores. Testing with LTS, as we have mentioned above, scientifically tests for the process of your body burning it's own fat as fuel. When the sticks turn purple (or a shade thereof), you are burning fat! It is a good feeling! It is especially comforting to see that purple when your scales don't agree that you are losing! Keep in mind that fat loss doesn't always equal weight loss on the scales... immediately. Body weight can be related to water retention, and many other temporary conditions. However, FAT loss is what we want, and you will see measurements change even if your scale does not show it immediately! That WILL follow, of course... just stick with it!
    Some have asked, "Do I have to be in ketosis?" Well, it is perfectly safe to be in what Dr. Atkins calls "Benign Dietary Ketosis" for extended periods. In fact, if you are burning fat, you will be in some amount of ketosis...sometimes just not a measurable amount (with LTS). If you are out of ketosis for extended periods, you won't be burning fat, and therefore, you won't be losing weight! And that's what we are doing the diet to do! Don't confuse ketosis, a safe metabolic state that you enter when you loss weight, with ketoacidosis, a dangerous state that diabetics, in particular, can enter if they get out of proper balance in their insulin / glycogen balance. Many health care professionals and nutritionists are apparently confused by the distinction between these two different states... ketone test strips are used to test both states, but they are quite different!


    Cherimee, BIG THANKS!!!! The info you gave me is sooooo relieving!!! I was so worried! I know that must have takin a while for you to find and type, thank you so much for helping me!

VISIT: http://livercirrhosis.vital101.com How To Cure Liver Cirrhosis Naturally - Liver Cirrhosis Natural Treatment - Liver Cirrhosis Diet What is cirrhosis of the liver? Cirrhosis is a condition that results from permanent damage or scarring of the liver. This leads to a blockage of blood flow through the liver and prevents normal metabolic and regulatory processes. What are the major causes of cirrhosis? The major causes of cirrhosis are as follows: - Chronic alcoholism. - Viral infections caused by chronic viral hepatitis (types B, C and D). - Metabolic diseases such as alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency, galactosemia and glycogen storage disorders. - inherited diseases such as Wilson disease and hemochromatosis. - Biliary cirrhosis resulting from diseases such as primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). - Toxic hepatitis caused by severe reactions to prescribed drugs or prolonged exposure to environmental toxins. - repeated bouts of heart failure with liver congestion. What are some early symptoms of cirrhosis? People in the early stages of cirrhosis have few symptoms. Some symptoms an individual may notice include: - Loss Of Appetite. - Nausea. - Weight Loss. - Fatigue. - Weakness. - Exhaustion. What happens as liver function decreases? As liver function decreases, fewer proteins such as albumin are produced resulting in fluid accumulation in the legs (edema) or abdomen (ascites). Individuals with cirrhosis may bleed and bruise easily due to a decrease in proteins required for blood clotting. Some people may even experience intense itching due to products that are deposited in the skin.

Lactic Acidosis In Patients With Hepatitis C Virus Cirrhosis And Combined Ribavirin/sofosbuvir Treatment - Sciencedirect

Volume 64, Issue 4 , April 2016, Pages 790-799 Lactic acidosis in patients with hepatitis C virus cirrhosis and combined ribavirin/sofosbuvir treatment Author links open overlay panel Martin-WalterWelker1 Get rights and content Sofosbuvir (SOF) based interferon-alfa free antiviral therapy has become the treatment of choice for patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Little is known about safety of drug combinations using two nucleos(t)ide polymerase inhibitors in patients with HCV associated advanced cirrhosis. Here, we report frequent occurrence of lactic acidosis associated with acute-on-chronic hepatic decompensation during ribavirin (RBV) plus SOF based antiviral therapy. Thirty-five patients with chronic hepatitis C and advanced fibrosis, compensated cirrhosis, and decompensated cirrhosis without and after liver transplantation were treated with SOF based antiviral therapy with and without RBV. Adverse events including lactic acidosis (pH <7.35, lactate >20mg/dl) were recorded 24weeks before and during (meanSD, 1811weeks) antiviral therapy. Efficacy was determined by assessment of serum HCV RNA. We observed severe adverse events in 15/35 (43%) patients before Continue reading >>

    :wave: Hello everyone,
    I've just completed my 3rd week on Atkins. First two were great I lost 12 pounds and it was a breeze. Third week 0 loss. I have been looking at what I've been eating to see if I'm doing something wrong. I found I was using balsamic vinegar, my favorite. I've think my salads have been too big too.
    My weight is pretty high 280 and I would like keep it moving downward for awhile. Any tips?

    :daze: Sorry about the previous post. It was my first and I put it in the wrong spot.

  3. Karen

    Weight loss is not always steady. There will be nothing for a while, then a whoosh of loss. Sometimes, it will be a slow burn.
    Advice from an "oldbie"? Choose between either plan and don't combine the two until you feel entirely comfortable with one of them. Then you can decide if you want to switch.
    You may want to start a journal in the journal forum. What you are eating may be just fine, but we can't tell because we don't know.

Ribavirin May Increase Lactic Acidosis Occurrence For Hcv-related Cirrhosis

Ribavirin may increase lactic acidosis occurrence for HCV-related cirrhosis Welker M-W, et al. J Hepatol. 2015;doi:10.1016/j.jhep.2015.11.034. New findings published in the Journal of Hepatology show that patients with hepatitis C virus infection-related cirrhosis undergoing antiviral therapy with ribavirin may have increased risk for developing lactic acidosis. In a retrospective analysis, researchers collected data of 35 patients with chronic HCV with advanced fibrosis, compensated cirrhosis and decompensated cirrhosis before and after liver transplantation treated with Sovaldi (sofosbuvir, Gilead Sciences)-based antiviral therapy with and without ribavirin. Adverse events were measured over a period of 24 weeks before and during therapy. Overall, 43% of patients experienced a serious adverse event (n = 15) before 24 weeks and 34% (n = 12) during antiviral therapy. A majority of the adverse events were associated with acute-on-chronic hepatic decompensation. Lactic acidosis was observed in 14% of patients during therapy (n = 5). No evidence of lactic acidosis was seen prior to the start of antiviral therapy . Severe lactic acidosis, meaning an arterial lactate concentration grea Continue reading >>

    There has to be some answer but so far what I find is that everybody says the same old things and they never work - magnesium, calcium, carbs - nothing has helped me. Heart racing? That's indication to me of high cortisol and/or high caffeine levels when you're ready to sleep.

    You've lost 70 fracking pounds and only have 30 or 40 left to go?
    I know you don't want to hear it, but the catecholamine honeymoon is almost over. Now is the prime time to add in starches and fruits, and back off of fat a little (you still need some, just don't guzzle coconut oil and heavy cream).
    If that sounds like a bad idea, I recommend checking out Richard Nikoley's recent moderate starch experiment. If you look at the FitDay breakdown, he comes out with only 210g of carbohydrate at the end of the day, a measly 60 grams above Mark's carb pyramid ceiling - with more than enough quality fat and protein behind it.
    If you can manage to not binge on the fruit you eat each day, I refuse to believe you can't manage not to binge on potatoes. As long as you're not covering them in gobs of fat, it's really not an easy thing to accomplish - and this is coming from a world-class binge eater.
    Asking how to solve your insomnia without giving up chronic low-carbing is like asking how to nourish yourself without giving up anorexia. It's an inherently false premise and will lead you nowhere.

FWIW, after 3-4 days on this I have found hunger to actually be less, not more as I expected. And yes, absolutely, upping the carbs by roughly 150g per day meant decreasing the fat and protein. I don't know why so many have a problem with this aspect.
