Alkalosis is the result of a process reducing hydrogen ion concentration of arterial blood plasma (alkalemia). In contrast to acidemia (serum pH 7.35 or lower), alkalemia occurs when the serum pH is higher than normal (7.45 or higher). Alkalosis is usually divided into the categories of respiratory alkalosis and metabolic alkalosis or a combined respiratory/metabolic alkalosis. Respiratory alkalosis is caused by hyperventilation, resulting in a loss of carbon dioxide. Compensatory mechanisms for this would include increased dissociation of the carbonic acid buffering intermediate into hydrogen ions, and the related excretion of bicarbonate, both of which lower blood pH. Hyperventilation-induced alkalosis can be seen in several deadly central nervous system diseases such as strokes or Rett syndrome. Metabolic alkalosis can be caused by rep

Metabolic Alkalosis: Practice Essentials, Pathophysiology, Etiology

Author: Christie P Thomas, MBBS, FRCP, FASN, FAHA; Chief Editor: Vecihi Batuman, MD, FASN more... Metabolic alkalosis is a primary increase in serum bicarbonate (HCO3-) concentration. This occurs as a consequence of a loss of H+ from the body or a gain in HCO3-. In its pure form, it manifests as alkalemia (pH >7.40). As a compensatory mechanism, metabolic alkalosis leads to alveolar hypoventilation with a rise in arterial carbon dioxide tension (PaCO2), which diminishes the change in pH that would otherwise occur. Normally, arterial PaCO2 increases by 0.5-0.7 mm Hg for every 1 mEq/L increase in plasma bicarbonate concentration, a compensatory response that is very quick. If the change in PaCO2 is not within this range, then a mixed acid-base disturbance occurs. For example, if the increase in PaCO2 is more than 0.7 times the increase in bicarbonate, then metabolic alkalosis coexists with primary respiratory acidosis. Likewise, if the increase in PaCO2 is less than the expected change, then a primary respiratory alkalosis is also present. The first clue to metabolic alkalosis is often an elevated bicarbonate concentration that is observed when serum electrolyte measurements are obt Continue reading >>

    DKA can be life threatening - it needs hospital assessment. She will probably have a hospital stay of a few days at least, especially a newly diagnosed diabetic. This is a common first presentation. A glucose and insulin drip is given in DKA - the glucose is need for energy and the insulin is needed to carry it into the cells of the body. she will need to have education - see a diabetic educator when you get home - she MUST monitor her BSL's and see a DR when she feels unwell - EARLY treatment can avoid deterioration into DKA. my best friend is diabetic since age 2 - she uses a pump and is very happy with the pump and prefers it. She had 2 children - born premmie due to complications - and my friend's kidney function and eyes did deteriorate alittle each time and she chose not to have a third child for her health. Close care is given to diabetics as their babies are typically larger and baby needs watching after birth as their health can deteriorate once taken away from mother's higher glucose - and they usually go to special care for a day or two. Baby may be delivered early as the placenta can deteriorate quickly when the mother reaches or goes over her due dates and death of the baby can result - hence the very close monitoring she can still have pretty much a normal life but needs close monitoring. She must be aware diabetes will cause deterioration in the nerves - eg diabetics lose feeling in their feet and get ulcers and infection easily and she must be fitted for her shoes and watch the health of her feet. Do not use the artificial sweeteners such as ASPARTAME (951 / 950 on food) - go and watch SWEET REMEDY and SWEET MISERY on youtube this is often pushed as okay for diabetics do some research on ASPARTAME. STEVIA is a plant based alternative from the health food shop My friend found her BSL's were more stable when she tried GOJI - she used the HIMALAYAN BRAND GOJI JUICE. Was expensive but she found she was able to reduce her insulin alittle and her levels were more stable. Might be worth considering a BSL will change to a higher reading after food as the energy from the food is entering the blood stream. she needs to wear an alert bracelet and seek medical attention when unwell to avoid progressing to a potentially life threatening DKA if my friend was having a HYPO (low blood sugar) - she would sit down and stop talking and stare straight ahead. she would carry glucose tablets and friends would know and give them to her followed by a sandwich and juice when she was feeling better as the BSL came up Be aware of the difference between a HYPO (LOW) and HYPER (HIGH) do not give anything to someone who cannot swallow - call an ambulance or follow the action plan your DR should provide .

    DKA is deadly because it slowly turns your body acidic, causing organ damage as well as other problems. It is caused by having little to no insulin produced by the pancreas, causing your blood sugar levels to go wayyyy too high. It is often treated by an insulin infusion and you are usually in the hospital for about a week or so. It can be easily diagnosed with a ketone test using a urine sample or a small amount of blood.

Acidosis And Alkalosis | Harrison's Principles Of Internal Medicine, 19e | Accessmedicine | Mcgraw-hill Medical

Systemic arterial pH is maintained between 7.35 and 7.45 by extracellular and intracellular chemical buffering together with respiratory and renal regulatory mechanisms. The control of arterial CO2 tension (Paco2) by the central nervous system (CNS) and respiratory system and the control of plasma bicarbonate by the kidneys stabilize the arterial pH by excretion or retention of acid or alkali. The metabolic and respiratory components that regulate systemic pH are described by the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation: Under most circumstances, CO2 production and excretion are matched, and the usual steady-state Paco2 is maintained at 40 mmHg. Underexcretion of CO2 produces hypercapnia, and overexcretion causes hypocapnia. Nevertheless, production and excretion are again matched at a new steady-state Paco2. Therefore, the Paco2 is regulated primarily by neural respiratory factors and is not subject to regulation by the rate of CO2 production. Hypercapnia is usually the result of hypoventilation rather than of increased CO2 production. Increases or decreases in Paco2 represent derangements of neural respiratory control or are due to compensatory changes in response to a primary alteration Continue reading >>

    My teeth look awesome because I brush 10-15 times a day. Listerine breath strips don't touch it. Neither gum nor mints help. I don't even want to be in public.
    Nothing is worse than catching a whiff of my own breath and wondering what died and then realizing it's my innards slowly rotting and wafting out of my mouth.
    How long does this rotting corpse smell last and what can I do?

    I don't know how long it lasts but I hear you. I'm glad I'm not seeing anyone right now because the only creature alive who could want to kiss me (and does) is my dog.

    Ketosis breath is typically "sweet" smelling.....similar to juicy fruit gum, oddly enough. If you truly have ketosis breath....eat some carbs, you really shouldn't be in ketosis if you're getting 20g of carbs a day. This isn't the Atkins diet we're doing here.
    However....I see you're recently sleeved and your body is going to be in upheaval..."Cleaning house" so to speak...it's common to have a bit more bacteria living in the oral region than usual causing some rank breath. Try a tongue brush and attempt to get waaaay back on your tongue without gagging yourself....you'd be amazed by how much gunk can live back there....also, a good mouthwash swish and gargle will help. This too shall pass...hang in there and best of luck.

Excess CO2 causes the pH of blood and other bodily fluids to decrease, making them too acidic. Normally, the body is able to balance the ions that control acidity. This balance is measured on a pH scale from 0 to 14.

Abg: Respiratory Acidosis/metabolic Alkalosis

Home / ABA Keyword Categories / A / ABG: Respiratory acidosis/metabolic alkalosis ABG: Respiratory acidosis/metabolic alkalosis A combined respiratory acidosis / metabolic alkalosis will result in elevated PaCO2 and serum bicarbonate. Which process is the primary disorder (e.g. primary respiratory acidosis with metabolic compensation versus primary metabolic alkalosis with respiratory compensation) is dependent on the pH in an acidotic patient, the acidosis is primary (and the alkalosis is compensatory) and vice versa. Compensation behaves in accordance with the following rules: Metabolic Acidosis: As bicarbonate goes from 10 to 5, pCO2 will bottom out at 15. pCO2 = 1.5 x [HCO3-] + 8 (or pCO2 = 1.25 x [HCO3-]) Metabolic Alkalosis: compensation here is less because CO2 is driving force for respiration. pCO2 = 0.7 x [HCO3-] + 21 (or pCO2 = 0.75 x [HCO3-]) Acutely: [HCO3-] = 0.1 x pCO2 or pH = 0.008 x pCO2 Chronically: [HCO3-] = 0.4 x pCO2 or pH = 0.003 x pCO2 Respiratory Alkalosis: Metabolic compensation will automatically be retention of chloride (i.e., hyperchloremic, usually referred to as loss of bicarb although it is the strong ion difference that matters).

    Hello guys. Long time lurker, first time poster. Wanting to cosplay for an anime convention is what spurred me on to actually attempt keto after reading about it for a while. I've been doing it for almost two months with my brother and we've both lost around 22 pounds.
    We combined IF with keto and we only eat once a day around 6-7 in the evening. Lots of heavy cream, butter and olive oil fried meat and spinach with cheese are constituents of our daily intake. However, recently I had been worrying that we're not getting a lot of vitamins/minerals that we might need, so around 2 weeks ago I bought One a Day for Men (those vitamin supplements), and I have been taking them with dinner.
    I watched some seminars/presentations of Peter Attia about the importance of Omega 3 fatty acids, and I don't really get to eat fish that often, so yesterday I bought some fish oil supplements to go along with my vitamin supplements.
    However, my brother complains that we're taking too many pills and jokes (morbidly) about how it's like we have a serious illness and are being forced to take pills.
    How do fellow ketoers handle the lack of some nutrients in the diet? Do some of you take multivitamins? Are my apprehensions valid or do they have no basis? Is it okay for me to take fish oil and one a day together with meals, or is that too many supplements?
    tl;dr Taking multivitamins and fish oil with meals, is that okay?

  2. midnightreign

    Daily multivitamin consumer here - I probably have some very expensive urine, but I figure it's worth it to make sure I'm not missing out on some critical macro/micro nutrients.
    I also take an Omega 3 supplement once daily, because while I like fish, I don't like mercury and so don't consume tons of seafood.

  3. materhern

    Yeah, no problems with taking supplements. I take a ton for various reasons.
    Multivitamin even before keto.
    Fish oil to raise good cholesterol as for some reason I can't keep it high enough.
    Vitamin C for health with allergies.
    B-complex, inositol, potassium, magnesium, l-carnitine, and chromium piccolinate.

    Your blood needs the right balance of acidic and basic (alkaline) compounds to function properly. This is called the acid-base balance. Your kidneys and lungs work to maintain the acid-base balance. Even slight variations from the normal range can have significant effects on your vital organs. Acid and alkaline levels are measured on a pH scale. An increase in acidity causes pH levels to fall. An increase in alkaline causes pH levels to rise. Whe ...
