Approach To The Adult With Metabolic Acidosis

INTRODUCTION On a typical Western diet, approximately 15,000 mmol of carbon dioxide (which can generate carbonic acid as it combines with water) and 50 to 100 mEq of nonvolatile acid (mostly sulfuric acid derived from the metabolism of sulfur-containing amino acids) are produced each day. Acid-base balance is maintained by pulmonary and renal excretion of carbon dioxide and nonvolatile acid, respectively. Renal excretion of acid involves the combination of hydrogen ions with urinary titratable acids, particularly phosphate (HPO42- + H+ —> H2PO4-), and ammonia to form ammonium (NH3 + H+ —> NH4+) [1]. The latter is the primary adaptive response since ammonia production from the metabolism of glutamine can be appropriately increased in response to an acid load [2]. Acid-base balance is usually assessed in terms of the bicarbonate-carbon dioxide buffer system: Dissolved CO2 + H2O <—> H2CO3 <—> HCO3- + H+ The ratio between these reactants can be expressed by the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation. By convention, the pKa of 6.10 is used when the dominator is the concentration of dissolved CO2, and this is proportional to the pCO2 (the actual concentration of the acid H2CO3 is very lo Continue reading >>

    I had a great first week or so then got my period. My mood was aweful and I was hungry constantly. I did over eat a couple times but kept it to nuts and peanut butter. My cravings came flooding back and it surprised me... Does anyone else have trouble. I am permetapausal and my hormones seem to be all over the place during my period. It's like the bottom drops out. I have been journaling regularly so I know there is this 7-10 days that I am really off mood and appetite. I am curious about others or any advice. I a still trying to find my way. I am thinking about trying Judd with NK.
    Thank you for your thoughts. Jodi

    Oh yes! I have started calling it shark week. The cravings are insane some days. So I've decided.
    A. Not to weight, even if I'm faithful I normally don't lose. This way I'm not discouraged if I don't see a scale change.
    B. To just eat general low carb, and to plan some chocolatey lc desserts and snacks. For some reason my biggest craving is chocolate and creamy. Followed by salty and crunchy.
    In the last year I've started having some premenopausal symptoms as well. So I really sympathize. What used to be pms, is now shark week!
    I'd rather just eat too much lc foods, rather than give into other things and kick myself out of ketosis completely.

Ketosis is very much effected by hormone swings, so be kind to yourself - don't get weighed that week, and don't bother testing your ketones. Just stick to the plan as much as possible, and know a few slips along the way will not do you in, as long as you get back to NK when you can.
    I'm also in perimenopause and was starting to think I'd never lose weight again. I had to cut out dairy, limit my nut consumption, and start intermittent fasting (eating only between 1-9 p.m. each day) to get things moving again.
    Something that helps me a great deal is using progesterone cream. Because your body stores excess estrogen in fat cells, weight loss leads to excess estrogen in the bloodstream. When the levels of estrogen & progesterone are seriously out of balance, you get a whole host of fun symptoms, and moodiness, the munchies, and difficulty losing weight are among them. Using progesterone cream during the second half of your cycle can help balance that extra estrogen.
    Be sure to add anti-estrogenic foods to your plan, like chia seeds, cruciferous veggies (cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts, etc.), green leafy vegetables, fermented foods, onions and garlic. The fermented foods are especially important, since a healthy gut helps flush away the excess estrogen.
    I hope things start looking up for you soon!

Types Of Disturbances

The different types of acid-base disturbances are differentiated based on: Origin: Respiratory or metabolic Primary or secondary (compensatory) Uncomplicated or mixed: A simple or uncomplicated disturbance is a single or primary acid-base disturbance with or without compensation. A mixed disturbance is more than one primary disturbance (not a primary with an expected compensatory response). Acid-base disturbances have profound effects on the body. Acidemia results in arrythmias, decreased cardiac output, depression, and bone demineralization. Alkalemia results in tetany and convulsions, weakness, polydipsia and polyuria. Thus, the body will immediately respond to changes in pH or H+, which must be kept within strict defined limits. As soon as there is a metabolic or respiratory acid-base disturbance, body buffers immediately soak up the proton (in acidosis) or release protons (alkalosis) to offset the changes in H+ (i.e. the body compensates for the changes in H+). This is very effective so minimal changes in pH occur if the body is keeping up or the acid-base abnormality is mild. However, once buffers are overwhelmed, the pH will change and kick in stronger responses. Remember tha Continue reading >>

    So if someone had type 1 with no beta cell function, I'm guessing this dka thing would come into play and kill you pretty quickly????
    How long do you think ,like if you couldn't take insulin for some reason.
    I'm type one and in the past I've for silly reasons not taken any insulin for over a few weeks. This did cause hyperglycaemia and you get very weak and feel like logs are your legs. Interestingly tho no ketones atall.
    Well 0.9 was highest at week three.
    So does this mean that maybe your not a type 1
    I ask because everyone on here does say a lot about this dka an even when someone's only missed a dose of insulin like over like four hours.
    Seems rather quick isn't it.
    Maybe the lada is more suited to myself fo you think?
    Should I get a gad test redone and a c-peptide too?
    Cheers guys

    Hi can't really answer this what good reason did you have for not taken your insulin for a number of weeks as a type one or two your risking your health by not taking medication if i accidentally miss a dose my sugar levels go right up and my meter flashes saying i have ketones so i suspect if i didn't take any i would be in hospital or worse hope this helps.

    Click to expand... How long is a piece of string?
    Technically, the onset of DKA is rapid if there is no insulin on-board; within 24 hours in a lot of cases. This is often seen in diabetics who use pumps and have an occlusion which they are unaware of. As pump users don't use basal insulin, DKA can occur in a matter of hours if the elevated BG goes unnoticed for long enough. As with everything though, diabetes is not a "one size fits all" condition - so prerequisites for side effects like DKA vary from person to person.
    If you have doubts as to your diagnosis - you should raise this with your Diabetologist.
    Just out of interest, what are your insulin requirements and ratios? It would make logical sense that a T1D who could go three weeks without any insulin injections would be producing some of their own. That would imply that their general basal insulin doses are extremely low, along with their I:C ratios too...

    Yes it is. The bloodstream is absolutely full of glucose (since it isn't entering cells and being metabolized). This glucose load makes the blood HYPERosmolar and the kidneys respond by trying to remove glucose through urination. They cannot effectively deal with the large glucose load, and that's why glucose "spills" into the urine. The process of excessive urine output secondary to the large glucose load is called osmotic diuresis, and the client loses a HUGE amount of fluid through this diuretic effect, leading to profound dehydration.
