Renal Tubular Acidosis And Uraemic Acidosis

Metabolic acidosis can occur in both acute and chronic renal disorders the anion gap may be elevated, due to uraemic acidosis the anion gap may be normal, due to renal tubular acidosis (RTA) Uraemic acidosis results from the loss of functional nephrons decreased glomerular filtration rate (GFR) (e.g. <20 mL/min) accumulation of acidic anions such as phosphate and sulfate occurs causes high anion gap metabolic acidosis (HAGMA) patients manifest as renal failure, often have prolonged survival and develop chronic complications such as bone demineralisation Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) involves defects isolated to the renal tubules only GFR may be normal or only minimally affected primary problem is defective renal acid-base regulation due to impaired ability to acidify the urine and excrete acid results in net acid retention and hyperchloremic normal anion gap metabolic acidosis (NAGMA) may be incomplete and only develop in the presence of an acid load occurs despite a normal or only mildly reduced glomerular filtration rate (GFR) RTA is often detected incidentally through an abnormal blood workup, but some patients present with clinical features such as poor growth, dehydration, or Continue reading >>

    I just reached my full dose of topamax and I have the tingling too. each time I increase the drugs I get tingling for a lil while. Make sure you stay hydrated! drink lots of water. It is puzzling for sure and a bit annoying. I get it in my hands too but i'm told it goes away after a bit. Im telling you to stay hydrated because personally I find that if I drink more water it seems to help....at least it does for me...
    good luck! I hope the switch over helps .. i just had a simple partial the other day so i'm a lil worried this drug won't work for me at the neuros recommended dose but I guess we will see.
    let me know if your tingling goes away. but patience is key.

    I've been on Topamax 8 months and am up to 400mg a day.
    The tingling eventually went away other than when I play sport.
    I was managing on it.
    But now all my hair is falling out.
    One to watch out for as you get up to the higher doeses!

    I have been on topamx for about 5 years and have tried the other meds you have been on. All the other ones gave me bad side affects. With the topamx i always have the numbness in my hands and feet i hate it but its better then the other stuff i have been on. Also i have heard it called Dopamax because it can make you seen forgetful and not all there.

    Chris Masterjohn explains the Arctic variant of CPT-1a deficiency. In an environment that forced humans living there to eat a high fat diet, evolution weighed the benefits and the risks of constant ketosis against each other.

  2. Neckhammer

    Yeah, I remember when this came out (not the video, but the gene mutation information) a few years back. I think that the point many made at the time was that the inuit have the capacity to burn FAT for energy at high rates due to this without having to survive indefinitely in deep ketosis. The selective pressures are obviously directly related to this region, so perhaps even the temperature and light/dark cycle played a role in selection. At the levels of fat they consume they would be in deep ketosis without this mutation. Deep ketosis is associated with a high degree of appetite suppression, which might be an issue in such an environment that requires high caloric intake to survive.
    I don't see the need for permanent deep ketosis aside from treatment. Episodic and sporatic? Of course. I'm on more of a gluconeogenic diet these days if I have to call it anything. Sure I'm in mild ketosis most the time, but I have plenty of protein about for when its needed!
    Edit: I just searched MDA and it seems mark recently posted on this:
    "Yet in the Inuit and other Arctic populations, these mutations are incredibly common. What’s going on here? Why was it preserved in the Inuit, let alone selected for?
    First of all, the gene variant doesn’t seem to be deleterious in adult Inuit. A number of studies have shown that Inuit with the mutation tend to have less body fat and better blood lipids, though the mutation is still dangerous in kids and babies.
    The mutation also makes it easier for carriers to burn free fatty acids in mitochondria. This is a good thing for a population like the Inuit on a traditional diet, because they’re swimming in free fatty acids and they aren’t able to produce ketones or eat enough carbohydrates for energy. Free fatty acids are everywhere. If you can use them more efficiently, you’ve got a great, reliable source of energy on demand.
    Without a mutation like this one, the Inuit would likely be in permanent, deep ketosis. That can be hugely therapeutic in the right context. Ketones can prevent and treat epilepsy, for example. But what if there is a problem with long-term ketosis? Given the high-fat nature of their diet, this mutation is the only thing standing between a traditionally-eating Inuit and chronic, unavoidable ketosis. The rise of this mutation may have been a way to stave off that possibility.
    In a roundabout way, ketone adaptation is a way for anyone not carrying the anti-ketotic genetic marker common among Inuit to obtain Inuit-type metabolism. Long term ketone adaptation leads to an increased ability of skeletal muscle to directly oxidize free fatty acids for energy; the Inuit with the mutation do that already."

    I recall a discussion on FTA a couple of years ago about the discovery, IIRC, that marine mammals have a surprising amount of carbohydrates in the skin. The amount was sufficient to theoretically move their diet from ketogenic to low carb.

These are all extracts from testimonials that people who have used the Kidney diet to drastically change their lives and regained health; The Kidney Diet Secrets Guide Book was easy enough for an active guy like me to follow. It took sometime, but I managed to do it. No more kidney stones for 3 years. I know it will never come back once you really beat the root cause. This book taught me to get rid of kidney stones right from the roots. I was diagnosed with acute renal failure 7 months ago. I thought it was the end for me as the doctor's tone of voice implied. I did my research, and came across your guide. That was one of the best days in my life....being a business consultant, I had to travel a lot by land and by air...I thought I would never be able to follow the Kidney Diet Secrets guide but I was wrong. 11 months after, I'm still easily eating kidney-healthy diet and it never took control of my life. Thanks again! My family and I

    Being on Keto for 3 weeks now and going for first carb up this saturday. I am having so much anxiety over what to eat and what if i cant get back on keto!
    This has been such a journey with the keto flu and what not, not looking forward to carb up. (

  2. rrttyy123

    You should probably post on ketogains. The majority of people here are trying to lose weight, so they will downvote anyone who so much as mentions carbs in their post.
    With regards to the keto flu, you may want to wait a few weeks longer to allow your body to fully adapt. When I first started adding back carbs I didn’t feel all that great but after doing it for about 1.5 years I can now actually jump in and out of ketosis without any issues. Just remember that if you decide to binge on junk food it will probably amplify any issues you may have while introducing carbs back into your diet. Just as you adapt to being in ketosis, you can also adapt going in and out of ketosis. It just takes time. Don’t let everyone’s irrational fear of carbs on this subreddit deter you from eating them. It’s interesting to me how many of them say you don’t need them without knowing any of your stats, or if you’re even trying to lose weight. They forget that a CKD can be great for people not doing keto solely to lose weight and want to maximize their progress in the gym.

    Thanks! Didn't realise there is a ketogains sub. When i mentioned carb up, i didnt mean going crazy on carbs stuffing my face with sugar and such. It will still be a plan meal where calories are calculated. But great advise about carbing up after my body is more suitable being in keto, maybe I will skip this week and try again next month when I am more keto adapt.

    Abstract Metabolic acidosis is noted in the majority of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) when glomerular filtration rate (GFR) decreases to less than 20% to 25% of normal, although as many as 20% of individuals can have acid-base parameters close to or within the normal range. Acidosis generally is mild to moderate in degree, with plasma bicarbonate concentrations ranging from 12 to 22 mEq/L (mmol/L), and it is rare to see values less t ...
