Lactic Acidosis

Description Lactic acidosis is a form of metabolic acidosis due to the inadequate clearance of lactic acid from the blood. Lactate is a byproduct of anaerobic respiration and is normally cleared from the blood by the liver, kidney and skeletal muscle. Lactic acidosis occurs when the body's buffering systems are overloaded and tends to cause a pH of ≤7.25 with plasma lactate ≥5 mmol/L. It is usually caused by a state of tissue hypoperfusion and/or hypoxia. This causes pyruvic acid to be preferentially converted to lactate during anaerobic respiration. Hyperlactataemia is defined as plasma lactate >2 mmol/L. Classification Cohen and Woods devised the following system in 1976 and it is still widely used:[1] Type A: lactic acidosis occurs with clinical evidence of tissue hypoperfusion or hypoxia. Type B: lactic acidosis occurs without clinical evidence of tissue hypoperfusion or hypoxia. It is further subdivided into: Type B1: du Continue reading >>

    Hey all, I've been eating keto for about 10 days now. Loving the energy and I've lost 5 kilos/10 pounds, but holy cow do I have trouble sleeping (it is 1:00am here!) I can't fall asleep until at least two hours after I go to bed and then in the morning I will wake up no earlier than 10 unless I set my alarm.
    I read about keto flu and feeling fatigued, which did happen in the start, but now I'm having the opposite problem! I met a naturopath today and told her about this and she is quite concerned. Is this something to be concerned about? Any help is appreciated :)
