Renal Function During Metabolic Acidosis

Department of Animal Physiology and Cytobiology, Faculty of Biotechnology and Animal Husbandry, West Pomeranian University of Technology, Szczecin, Poland Metabolic acidosis influences renal structural and functional changes that occur to restore acid-base homeostasis. In this review selected aspects of these changes are discussed, focusing especially on alternations in tubular reabsorption and excretion, changes in water homeostasis and induction of hypertrophy. Also highlighted is the usage of proteomic techniques and gene expression analysis as useful tools which facilitate the obtaining of a wider view on changes in the kidneys during metabolic acidosis.

    What is the name of this kidney problem? It was only a very small amount doctors found that is NOT even visible to the eye.
    What does it mean if you:
    . pee blood
    . have a history of high blood pressure
    . you're told by your doctor that you can't eat red meat for the rest of your life or kidneys will get worse.

    Blood in the urine is known as hematuria. There are a lot of different causes. Kidney stones are a common cause and the tendency to form the more common type of stone is worsened by high protein consumption -- people on the Atkins diet or on ketogenic diets for epilepsy/other conditions often get kidney stones. High-protein diets cause your kidneys to work harder, so avoiding red meat will stress them less if you have chronic kidney disease (CKD) or any other renal problem.
    Consumption of red meat may also be a concern if you have a history of high blood pressure, and high blood pressure can be related to kidney problems. Controlling your high blood pressure will lead to better outcomes if you've got renal problems.
    Without more details I can't say what your diagnosis is; wouldn't they tell you?

    Some folks who have this have no problems at all...it's hereditary....Hubby and son both have this, but no problems have ever been found. Hubby's sister also had it.
    You should get checked thouroughly to make sure there's no problem!

Current Status Of Bicarbonate In Ckd

Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, Case Western Reserve University, University Hospital Case Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio Dr. Thomas H. Hostetter, Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, Case Western Reserve University, University Hospital Case Medical Center, 11100 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44106. Email: Thomas.Hostetter{at}uhhospitals.org Metabolic acidosis was one of the earliest complications to be recognized and explained pathologically in patients with CKD. Despite the accumulated evidence of deleterious effects of acidosis, treatment of acidosis has been tested very little, especially with respect to standard clinical outcomes. On the basis of fundamental research and small alkali supplementation trials, correcting metabolic acidosis has a strikingly broad array of potential benefits. This review summarizes the published evidence on the association between serum bicarbonate and clinical outcomes. We discuss the role of alkali supplementation in CKD as it relates to retarding kidney disease progression, improving metabolic and musculoskeletal complications. Patients with CKD experience a multitude of abnormalities and disabilities, among which metabolic acidosis Continue reading >>

    Hi there I am new to MagicMum this is my first post.
    We have an adorable little girl aged 3.5yrs, she's had lots of tests over the past 1.5yrs most recently for endocrine which were clear, mitochondria don't have full results but latest skin biopsy was clear, the Drs discovered while in the unit that she has a problem with her blood sugars as she had some hypos in there. We are waiting on results for Glycogen Storage Disease, consultant told us if this one is clear then more than likely we will have to put her blood sugar problems down to Ketotic Hypoglycemia although her symptoms don't fit it. Just wondering if anyone out there has come across KH and how you dealt with it and how your lo is doing. TIA

    Hi 2dolls, my ds1 had ketotic hypoglycaemia from age 18mths to 9yrs, and I have never heard of another child with the same thing til now!!
    My pm function doesnt work for some unfathomable reason so I cant pm you but if you pm me your email address we can chat that way (if you want!) without medical details etc being broadcast to the world

  3. 2Dolls

    Hi rosepetal thanks for the reply have sent you a pm.
    Our little girl is non symptomatic so we need to keep a close eye on her, shes on a high carb/high sugar diet with fasting times. She had ketones in her urine the other morning I just checked it on spec, I know if I ring the unit they will want me to reduce her fasting times, they have told us we could always look at adding corn starch to her meals, did you ever use the corn starch?
    I can't believe you haven't come across anyone else with KH, I thought I would find it easy to find people with experience of it as some support would be great.
    Chat again, 2Dolls.

Role Of The Kidneys In Maintaining Normal Blood Ph

Role of the kidneys in maintaining normal blood pH Summarized from Hamm L, Nakhoul N, Hering-Smith K. Acid-base homeostasis. Clin J Amer Soc Nephrology 2015; 10: 2232-42 The maintenance of blood pH within normal limits (7.35-7.45), called acid-base homeostasis, is a complex synergy involving three organs (lungs, kidneys and brain) as well as chemical buffers in blood and blood cells (erythrocytes). This vital physiologic process is the subject of a recent expert review article, authored by three academic/research nephrologists that focuses principally, although not exclusively, on the role of the kidney. The article begins with a broad overview of acid-base homeostasis, its pathophysiological importance and some familiar basic concepts such as bicarbonate buffering system and the related Henderson- Hasselbalch equation. The concept of metabolic/respiratory components of acid-base balance allows brief discussion of the integrated role of brain, lungs and kidneys. This introduction paves the way for the central focus of the article, which is the authors research interest: the role of the kidneys in acid-base homeostasis. In broad terms this role has two aspects that both relate to m Continue reading >>

    Metabolic acidosis is a clinical disturbance characterized by an increase in plasma acidity. Metabolic acidosis should be considered a sign of an underlying disease process. Identification of this underlying condition is essential to initiate appropriate therapy. (See Etiology, DDx, Workup, and Treatment.) Understanding the regulation of acid-base balance requires appreciation of the fundamental definitions and principles underlying this complex ...

    Acidosis is caused by an overproduction of acid in the blood or an excessive loss of bicarbonate from the blood (metabolic acidosis) or by a buildup of carbon dioxide in the blood that results from poor lung function or depressed breathing (respiratory acidosis). If an increase in acid overwhelms the body's acid-base control systems, the blood will become acidic. As blood pH drops (becomes more acidic), the parts of the brain that regulate breath ...

  • Understanding The Kidneys' Role In Blood Glucose Regulation.

    Tweet The kidneys are remarkable organs of the human body that are responsible for many essential regulatory roles, including filtering the blood to keep it clean and chemically balanced. Diabetes, however, can cause this vital filtering system to break down. High levels of blood sugar can damage the kidneys and cause them to fail, thus eliminating their ability to filter out waste, which over time can lead to kidney disease (nephropathy). What a ...
