What is ALKALOSIS? What does ALKALOSIS mean? ALKALOSIS meaning - ALKALOSIS pronunciation - ALKALOSIS definition - ALKALOSIS explanation - How to pronounce ALKALOSIS? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... 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

    How to know if you are in ketosis.

    Well i am sure there is another post like this, because i read it before, but i dont remeber exactly what it said and I cant find it.
    The quesiton is just as the title says, how can i know if i am in ketosis or not?
    I have been reading and the people says that at the second day, or thirth day or X day they get in to ketosis, but how they know that?

  2. jumpingjupiter

    If you have never been in Ketosis buy some keto sticks. You can pick them up at most drug stores in the US and Canada. Ask the pharmisist if you can't find them on the shelf. Usually they will be with diabetic supplies. Lots of people will say not to waist your money but they are cheap and I get an instant gratification when I see the test strip turn color. Besides, it is always nice to see evidence that your effort is paying off.
    -odd metalic taste in your mouth and bad breath.
    -Odd smelling urine is another symptom.
    -You will pee like a race horse.
    - I also get cotton mouth (dry mouth and really foamy saliva). Not sure if anyone else gets this.

  3. Andypandy999

    Normally i pee like a race horse for 2 days after my carb up which means im back in ketosis, Breath smells like crap, my wee smells like meat, and i find i get really de-hydrated...

Nurse Nightingale: Metabolic Acidosis Study Guide

Email This BlogThis! Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Metabolic Acidosis is an acid-base imbalance in which the pH and the bicarbonate are both low. Being able to interpret and understand acid-base imbalances will not only show up on NCLEX but will also show up frequently in the hospital setting. This is a post over the signs and symptoms, causes, and treatments of Metabolic Acidosis. You might like to go back and review this post on ABGs: The Ultimate Beginners Guide . Metabolic Acidosis happens by either gaining hydrogen ions or losing bicarb. The pH is below 7.35 and the bicarb is below 22 mEq/L. Here's a table for a quick review: ROME: Respiratory Opposite. Metabolic Equal. Remember Metabolic Acidosis is from the ass (diarrhea). Just think, it puts the ass in acidosis. Hey, whatever helps me remember things, right? Metabolic Alkalosis is from the mouth (vomiting) **Excessive administration of isotonic saline or ammonium chloride** Respirations will increase to compensate. The patient begins to hyperventilate because the body is trying to decrease the CO2. Like everything else I ever post about, treatment depends on the cause. If the patient has renal failu Continue reading >>

    Maybe, but it depends on a few factors:

    What are the net carbs in the bar? (n)
    n = (grams carbs) - (grams fiber)

    How many carbs have you already consumed today? (x)
    x = total carbs before protein bar
    If (n+x) > 40 then you've probably been kicked out of keto.
    If (n+x) < 40 then you're probably still in keto.
    Your personal limit may differ from my general rule of 40g net carbs per day. Since you know your body best, go with your personal number. To test your limits, use keto sticks to test your urine for the presence of ketones. Color doesn't matter because being in ketosis is like being pregnant. You can't be a little pregnant, you either are or aren't.

  2. Steve Clarke

    It depends entirely on the types of carbs.
    Simple carbs will increase insulin secretion but 17g should be OK... just be careful.
    If the carbs were in fact fiber (Quest bars) you'll be absolutely fine. They are my go to treat when I play with Ketosis.
    Keep your carbs below 50g and get most from fiber and complex carbs.
    Also to note: Some processed sugars will cause insulin spike also.

  3. Raj Patel

    Most likely not. But it depends on how many total carbs you ate that day. Also if all those 17 grams are from sugar or not? It is a lot of carbs in one shot. If your on a ketogenic diet I would avoid protien shakes and bars.

Anion Gap Acidosis | Allnurses

Can someone please explain the difference btwn non-anion and anion met acidosis, why it's important to know the difference and how do we treat/manage this? I just started in ICU and I have been hearing this a lot here. Have you researched this at all on the internet or in your textbooks? If you're a nurse, then you really should know how to research anything you're confused about. Rather than ask someone to take the time to teach you the basics, why not read up on the basics and then come with specific questions? Moved to our Critical Care forum for more replies. It depends on how messed up your electrolytes and bicarb are. There's a formula out there. A wide gap is bad. By correcting the acidoses and dehydration and fixing electrolyte issues you close the gap and balance the equation. Anion gap is a further step to figure out why a person has for instance, in this case, metabolic acidosis. I like to pretend it's a mystery obtain objective and subjective information. Patient is a 65 year old male admitted with moderate dehydration, and complaint of diarrhea for the last 3 days. Okay lets draw labs, and get a blood gas Na+ 134, K+ 2.9, Cl- 108, HCO3- 16, BUN 31, First figure out yo Continue reading >>

    I'm on week 5 of IP (down 15.2 lbs - go me!)
    I bought the ketostix and was surprised that I'm only scaling at "medium"
    Does that still mean I'm in ketosis?
    I'm very strict on the plan (although I do have a restricted IP treat daily and it's always a chocolately one)
    Does that matter?
    Thanks :-)

  2. Sundove

    Yes, even a slight positive means you're in ketosis. They measure the ketones that are spilling over into your urine. You might notice your results going from medium to trace over time, as your body becomes more efficient at burning up all the ketones for fuel, hence very little ending up in your urine. You've probably read the other ways to tell if you're in ketosis, e.g. odd odor to breath/urine, dry hands, cold hands or feet.
    Sounds like you're rocking the plan--congrats!
