The Effect Of Lactic Acidosis On The Generation And Compensation Of Mixedrespiratory-metabolic Acidosis In Neonatal Calves.

1. Vet Rec. 2013 May 18;172(20):528. doi: 10.1136/vr.101192. Epub 2013 Mar 13. The effect of lactic acidosis on the generation and compensation of mixedrespiratory-metabolic acidosis in neonatal calves. (1)First Clinic for Reproductive Medicine, Department of Food Animals, Vetsuisse-Faculty, Clinic of Reproductive Medicine, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstr.260, CH 8057, Zurich, Switzerland. [email protected] Postnatal mixed respiratory-metabolic acidosis is common in calves, and dependingon its severity can impair vitality or even cause death. Carbon dioxide accounts for the respiratory component and L-lactate for the metabolic component of themixed acidosis, but it remains unclear which component determines the severityand duration of the acidosis. In a first attempt to clarify, this wasinvestigated retrospectively in 31 calves during the first two hours of life, andin 13 calves during the first three days of life. Venous blood was collected for blood gas analysis and measurement of acid-base variables and L-lactateconcentration. pH Was more strongly correlated with L-lactate concentration(r(2)=0.808) than with partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2, r(2)=0.418).

    Hello there smart people.
    So I started Keto in May after reading the Obesity Code. I got really excited and started IF right away. I loved it and felt great up until a month ago. All of the sudden I was having horrible pains in my right side. It felt as if I was passing something or possible Hernia.
    I went and saw my naturopath that ordered an ultrasound. He said "you have an unhappy Liver from losing weight too fast" I had only lost 13 pounds at that point (2 months).
    The blood tests and ultrasound confirmed a fatty liver. I stopped IF but kept eating Keto. I have tested myself and fluctuate between .3 and 1.2 Ketones. I feel Fat adapted as I am only eating 2 times a day at the moment.
    I've lost a total of 18 pounds since May 21, The pain is still there. If I fast the pain gets worse.
    Oh and I had my Gallbladder removed in 2007, I wish I had not.
    Has anyone else experienced this? I have read a few studies where the Keto diet can heal a fatty liver. But the main stream docs are scaring me off of it.

    Thanks for being there.

    Hi, I'm not sure if your having a similar pain as I had but shortly after I started Keto I was getting back pains that seemed to be from my kidneys. I believe it was my body producing more uric acid and the start of getting kidney stones.
    The solution for me was drinking some water with lemon every day for a few weeks. Eventually I seem to have adjusted and don't get the pains any more.

    When I first noticed it and the pain was bad I'd have a glass with a little baking soda, lemon, and some apple cider vinegar. (watch out the foam when first combined). It's just my 2 cents.

    I had similar in the start too, and that was kidneys, but it sorted itself out.

Compensated Acidosis | Definition Of Compensated Acidosis By Medical Dictionary

Compensated acidosis | definition of compensated acidosis by Medical dictionary Also found in: Dictionary , Thesaurus , Encyclopedia . Related to compensated acidosis: acidotic 1. the accumulation of acid and hydrogen ions or depletion of the alkaline reserve (bicarbonate content) in the blood and body tissues, resulting in a decrease in pH. 2. a pathologic condition resulting from this process, characterized by increase in hydrogen ion concentration (decrease in pH). The optimal acid-base balance is maintained by chemical buffers, biologic activities of the cells, and effective functioning of the lungs and kidneys. The opposite of acidosis is alkalosis. adj., adj acidotic. Acidosis usually occurs secondary to some underlying disease process; the two major types, distinguished according to cause, are metabolic acidosis and respiratory acidosis (see accompanying table). In mild cases the symptoms may be overlooked; in severe cases symptoms are more obvious and may include muscle twitching, involuntary movement, cardiac arrhythmias, disorientation, and coma. In general, treatment consists of intravenous or oral administration of sodium bicarbonate or sodium lactate solutions and cor Continue reading >>

Metabolic Acidosis | Pathway Medicine

Metabolic Acidosis is a pathophysiological category of acidosis that refers to any cause of decreased ECF pH not due to a ventilatory defect (i.e. Respiratory Acidosis). Although the primary metabolic disturbance can cause a significant decrease in blood pH, respiratory compensatory mechanisms can largely correct the pH over several hours. The fundamental primary disturbance in a metabolic acidosis is a decrease in the levels of ECF bicarbonate concentration ([HCO3-]). Decreased bicarbonate results in an misalignment of the Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation for the bicarbonate buffer which largely determines the pH of the extracellular fluid. Mathematically, the reduced ECF pH results from an increase in the ratio between the partial pressure of arterial carbon dioxide (PaCO2) relative to the ECF concentration of bicarbonate ([HCO3-]). More colloquially, metabolic acidoses are caused by a pathologic consumption of the weak base form of the bicarbonate buffer, that is bicarbonate (HCO3-), resulting in a decrease in ECF pH. Metabolic Acidoses can be compensated by the actions of the lungs which serve to realign the bicarbonate buffer Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation over a period of hour Continue reading >>

    After listening to the latest Tim Ferriss podcast (great listen for KETO people!) he mentioned that supplementing ketones is a great way to ease into ketosis, or create ketosis for a short period of time. I then googled ketone supplements and only saw "raspberry ketone for weight loss" which seemed sketchy. Ferris describes taking ketones as drinking jet fuel, so idk if his stuff is for the faint of heart, but I was wondering if anyone takes ketone supplements and where did they get them.
    Thanks for any advice, I am asking about this because I'm lazy and he made it seem like this is an easy way to do ketosis..

    Some people get caught up with all kinds of weight loss nonsense, supplementing keto salts is nonsense for weight-loss.
    Ketones don't cause weight-loss. Having ketones is the biomarker that you are:
    making glucose
    predominantly metabolising fat
    Under these conditions ketones are produced as a necessary and beneficial by-product.
    Taking keto salts or MCT oil will give you ketones without the benefits associated with nutritional ketosis. Ketone supplementation on top of a ketogenic diet is mostly useful for people with intractable epilepsy suffering dozens of seizures per day.

  3. super_toilet

    Far from expert, but the whole point of keto is that your body will burn fat and make all the ketones it needs from that fat. If you're taking ketones that meas you're body isn't burning fat to make them. These businesses aren't interested in helping you burn fat as much as they are interested in helping you burn cash.

    DEFINITION Respiratory acidosis = a primary acid-base disorder in which arterial pCO2 rises to an abnormally high level. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY arterial pCO2 is normally maintained at a level of about 40 mmHg by a balance between production of CO2 by the body and its removal by alveolar ventilation. PaCO2 is proportional to VCO2/VA VCO2 = CO2 production by the body VA = alveolar ventilation an increase in arterial pCO2 can occur by one of three possible ...
