If your body's pH is highly acidic most of the time, you can increase your risk for a variety of diseases. A pH balance of 0 to 6 is acid, a pH balance of 7 is neutral, and a pH balance of 8 to 14 is alkaline. If you have been eating a lot of acidic foods, you can adjust the balance by learning how to correct high acid pH with high alkali foods. Monitor your stress level If you made dietary changes and included less acidic foods in your diet and still notice a high acid pH balance, stress could be the culprit. Utilize stress reduction techniques to help reduce acidity. Change your diet Acidic foods may include meat (animal protein), dairy, white rice, wheat and white flour, including pasta. Amaranth, millet, and quinoa are good grains. All meats are acidic though beef, pork and shellfish are the worst. Soy milk is alkaline, green tea and tisanes are alkaline, but black tea and alcohol are acidic. Raw spinach is great, but cooked spinach not so much (though its not the worst). Check your medications as certain medications can cause your pH balance to be acidic If you are not sure, speak to your doctor. If the medication is necessary and you cannot avoid it, you may help combat the acidic pH by eating alkaline foods. Use a pH testing strip to test your pH balance. You can either test your urine or saliva. Test 60 minutes before eating a meal and 2 hours after eating. This will give you the best range of pH. Test twice a week. Monitor your alcohol consumption If you have problems with stomach acid, you may need to reduce or even stop drinking alcohol. The biggest culprits are beverages with a low ethanol concentration 5%, such as beer and wine. Fermented alcoholic beverages (beer, wine, champagne, sherry, etc.) are considered powerful stimulators of stomach acid production. No direct link has been discovered between alcohol and stomach ulcers, but people who have ulcers are also more likely to have cirrhosis of the liver, a condition often caused by heavy alcohol consumption.

Is Your Body Too Acidic?

Imagine if physicians and other health-care professionals routinely ignored a fundamental aspect of health. That is just what happens when it comes to recognizing imbalances in the body’s pH (acid-alkaline ratio). Conventional medicine ignores pH balance—while holistic doctors recognize that our bodies are continually striving for this balance, and that chronic imbalance leaves us susceptible to disease. Most important: Acid-alkaline balance is easy to regulate. You can make very simple changes to your diet—and improve your body’s pH balance within hours. Here’s what you need to know… pH stands for “potential of hydrogen.” The concentration of hydrogen atoms in a solution determines its pH value, measured on a scale of 0 to 14, with lower numbers indicating higher acidity. Water, which is considered neutral (neither acidic nor alkaline), has a pH of 7. (To do a simple pH balance test yourself, see below.) The body’s pH balance strongly influences the risk for osteoporosis, sarcopenia (muscle loss), fractures and kidney stone formation—and possibly diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, thyroid problems, cancer and other insidious conditions.

    Interpreting the ReliOn Ketone Test Strips

    I have been low carb, less than 25g/day, for the last week and was sure I was in ketosis but thought I would check with the ReliOn test strips from Walmart. My result was 40mg/dl on their chart which they call moderate. Everything I have read lists ketones as mmol and it is said ketosis is from 0.5 to 5.0 mmol. I thing 40mg/dl converts to about 2.2 mmol but I am not sure. If someone understands this better than me I would like to know if I am doing the conversion right.
    I am currently reading a book about Low Carb Living:
    The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living: An Expert Guide to Making the Life-Saving Benefits of Carbohydrate Restriction Sustainable and Enjoyable: Stephen D. Phinney, Jeff S. Volek: 9780983490708: Amazon.com: Books
    I think this is one of the best books I have found so far, not better than Dr. Bernstein's or Jenny Ruhl's, but a great compliment to the lchf WOE. It goes into great detail about the science of low carb and why it works and is more natural than our high carb diets. It is written to inform professionals and they invite you to give a copy to your Doctor. The link is to Amazon so you can get more info and see some of the reviews it has received. I have no connection to this book or authors other than being impressed.

The color code really doesn't tell you more other than the darker the color, the more your kidneys are taking out of the blood.
    You have to get a special meter and strips to accurately measure blood Ketones, which is rather expensive and I'm not willing to buy. I'm satisfied to know that I'm producing Ketones by the excess production as indicated by the strip.

Anion gap usmle - anion gap metabolic acidosis normal anion gap metabolic acidosis

Metabolic Acidosis - An Overview | Sciencedirect Topics

Metabolic acidosis is a process that leads to the accumulation of H+ ions and the decrease in the content of HCO3 ions in the body. Larry R. Engelking, in Textbook of Veterinary Physiological Chemistry (Third Edition) , 2015 Metabolic acidosis is the most common acid-base disorder recognized in domestic animals. Like in respiratory alkalosis (see Chapter 91), the bicarbonate buffer equation is shifted to the left in metabolic acidosis (Fig. 87-1). Also, with an excess acid load or decreased urinary acid excretion, either an increased or normal plasma AG can be seen (see Table 86-1). What determines whether the AG will increase in metabolic acidosis? Whenever H+ is added to the system, HCO3 is consumed. The hydrogen cation cannot be added without an anion. Therefore, for each HCO3 consumed, a negative charge of some other type (which accompanied the H+) is added to body fluids. If the anion happens to be Cl, no change in the AG will develop. However, if it is any other anion, the AG will be increased. Kamel S. Kamel MD, FRCPC, Mitchell L. Halperin MD, FRCPC, in Fluid, Electrolyte and Acid-Base Physiology (Fifth Edition) , 2017 What is the cause of the metabolic acidosis in this pat Continue reading >>

    Hi All,
    Firstly thanks so much for everyone who posts on this forum. I have been a lurker for around 5 weeks which is the length of time I have been doing lazy keto.
    I don't feel hungry anymore - this has been a revelation and a blessing that I am very grateful for since starting keto.
    From the 2 keto dudes podcast I remeber the frequenbt refrain "if you aren't hungry, don't eat"
    I have been eating at the normal times I usually eat but I'm not sure that I'm always hungry and have just eaten because I feel I should do to ensure I get my macros. It has occured to me that this is the perfect time for me to keep a copy of the hunger scale and actually workout what hungry is for me because I have spent so long emotionally eating.
    However, I have ingested alot of information on keto and I have smatterings of half digested ideas floating around in my head. If I didn't eat in the next 2 days would my BMR drop? Is low calorie ok as long as I don't spike my insulin with carbs? I am not sure how to proceed.
    Apologies if this has been covered ad nauseum but when I have searched some posts say there is no such thing as starvation mode and others refer to it.


  2. BillJay


    If I didn't eat in the next 2 days would my BMR drop?
    This would be considered a fast and metabolism can actually increase during a fast, but will not likely decrease.

    Is low calorie ok as long as I don't spike my insulin with carbs?
    Chronic low calorie is the problem because at that point the body begins to predict that calories will continue to be limited and will down-regulate the metabolism to be conserving through what it thinks is an impending famine.

    actually workout what hungry is for me because I have spent so long emotionally eating
    Yeah, this is part of my problem too and why I track everything in MFP so I can at least review the information to detect patterns and associate them with how I feel.
    Using MFP, I noticed that my IF was actually being combined with calorie restriction and although keto does seem to naturally reduce calories, I was just too low considering how I felt.
    I find it best for me to restrict carbs to under 20 grams, protein between 70 and 100 grams and eat fat until I feel full and some days that means eating very little and some days I eat a lot (and I really mean a lot) and I've been hovering around the same bodyweight for a couple of years. I have problems when I try to increase calories using carbs or protein.
    I would recommend against eating just to get your macros unless that is based on empirical evidence that eating too little of something consistently results in feeling cold or hungry, etc.. This is taken from personal experience because I noticed that feeling cold correlated with eating too little in general and specifically too little fat as well as eating too little protein was associated with more soreness and slower recovery from activity and exercise.
    In other words, spend some time eating what you want and evaluate the results. In your case and mine this can be scary knowing that we have a history of eating for emotional reasons so it's constantly second-guessing whether or not the hunger is real.
    I've used the information I log to find out what works for me and review it weekly to see if I'm drifting too high or too low and I will occasionally correct with an extra fast or skipping a fast and eating more in the next couple of meals.

    That's probably not very helpful, although you're not alone when it comes to really understanding hunger and eating to satiety, and I will say that I have gotten much, much better at understanding real hunger and eating appropriately because there are now many more times when I've eaten to satiety and spontaneously fast which is something that never happened before keto.

  3. Azrael

    Thanks so much @billjay that is so helpful.
    I have never felt satiated before or had so much stable energy and it isn't something I wish to lose see through my ignorance.
    I know it's silly but I think I'm worried that if I don't eat consistently I will get caught short and end up eating carbage and fall back into the carb cycle.
    I've decided to keep some mini cheeses, avocado and preserved meat with me and listen to my body. From your story and other people's I have faith I will even out.
    Thanks again Azra

Respiratory acidosis #sign and symptoms of Respiratory acidosis Respiratory acidosis ABGs Analyse https://youtu.be/L5MWy1iHacI Plz share n subscribe my chanel is a condition that occurs when the lungs cant remove enough of the Suctioning https://youtu.be/hMJGkxvXTW0 carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by the body. 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. Acidosis occurs when the pH of the blood falls below 7.35 (normal blood pH is between 7.35 and 7.45).Rinku Chaudhary NSG officer AMU ALIGARH https://www.facebook.com/rinkutch/ Respiratory acidosis is typically caused by an underlying disease or condition. This is also called respiratory failure or ventilatory failure. Suctioning https://youtu.be/hMJGkxvXTW0 Normally, the lungs take in oxygen and exhale CO2. Oxygen passes from the lungs into the blood. CO2 passes from the blood into the lungs. However, sometimes the lungs cant remove enough CO2. This may be due to a decrease in respiratory rate or decrease in air movement due to an underlying condition such as: asthma COPD pneumonia sleep apnea TYPES Forms of respiratory acidosis There are two forms of respiratory acidosis: acute and chronic. Acute respiratory acidosis occurs quickly. Its a medical emergency. Left untreated, symptoms will get progressively worse. It can become life-threatening. Chronic respiratory acidosis develops over time. It doesnt cause symptoms. Instead, the body adapts to the increased acidity. For example, the kidneys produce more bicarbonate to help maintain balance. Chronic respiratory acidosis may not cause symptoms. Developing another illness may cause chronic respiratory acidosis to worsen and become acute respiratory acidosis. SYMPTOMS Symptoms of respiratory acidosis Initial signs of acute respiratory acidosis include: headache anxiety blurred vision restlessness confusion Without treatment, other symptoms may occur. These include: https://www.healthline.com/health/res... sleepiness or fatigue lethargy delirium or confusion shortness of breath coma The chronic form of respiratory acidosis doesnt typically cause any noticeable symptoms. Signs are subtle and nonspecific and may include: memory loss sleep disturbances personality changes CAUSES Common causes of respiratory acidosis The lungs and the kidneys are the major organs that help regulate your bloods pH. The lungs remove acid by exhaling CO2, and the kidneys excrete acids through the urine. The kidneys also regulate your bloods concentration of bicarbonate (a base). Respiratory acidosis is usually caused by a lung disease or condition that affects normal breathing or impairs the lungs ability to remove CO2. Some common causes of the chronic form are: asthma chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) acute pulmonary edema severe obesity (which can interfere with expansion of the lungs) neuromuscular disorders (such as multiple sclerosis or muscular dystrophy) scoliosis Some common causes of the acute form are: lung disorders (COPD, emphysema, asthma, pneumonia) conditions that affect the rate of breathing muscle weakness that affects breathing or taking a deep breath obstructed airways (due to choking or other causes) sedative overdose cardiac arrest DIAGNOSIS How is respiratory acidosis diagnosed? The goal of diagnostic tests for respiratory acidosis is to look for any pH imbalance, to determine the severity of the imbalance, and to determine the condition causing the imbalance. Several tools can help doctors diagnose respiratory acidosis. Blood gas measurement Blood gas is a series of tests used to measure oxygen and CO2 in the blood. A healthcare provider will take a sample of blood from your artery. High levels of CO2 can indicate acidosis.

Respiratory Acidosis: Causes, Symptoms, And Treatment

Respiratory acidosis develops when air exhaled out of the lungs does not adequately exchange the carbon dioxide formed in the body for the inhaled oxygen in air. There are many conditions or situations that may lead to this. One of the conditions that can reduce the ability to adequately exhale carbon dioxide (CO2) is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD. CO2 that is not exhaled can shift the normal balance of acids and bases in the body toward acidic. The CO2 mixes with water in the body to form carbonic acid. With chronic respiratory acidosis, the body partially makes up for the retained CO2 and maintains acid-base balance near normal. The body's main response is an increase in excretion of carbonic acid and retention of bicarbonate base in the kidneys. Medical treatment for chronic respiratory acidosis is mainly treatment of the underlying illness which has hindered breathing. Treatment may also be applied to improve breathing directly. Respiratory acidosis can also be acute rather than chronic, developing suddenly from respiratory failure. Emergency medical treatment is required for acute respiratory acidosis to: Regain healthful respiration Restore acid-base balance T Continue reading >>

    So my friend got me excited for trying keto. Been lurking a while here and at r/ketorecipes and have a good varied diet ready to try out. I want to lose about 10kg.
    I said to him I was going to try it and asked him for advice too. He said, I eat a lot of smoked mackerel and drink a lot of coffee with coconut butter. Well, I don't drink coffee. He said it would be hard if I don't.
    Is he right? I do drink plenty of water and (lemonfree) tea.
    And do you have ideas for quick energy fixes (like caffeine gives you)? I was thinking about extra pure chocolate from time to time.
    tl;dr I don't drink coffee. Can I keto? What are you quick energy alternatives?
    EDIT: Thanks so much for all the reactions. Started my keto run officially today. My friend said that drinking bulletproof coffee helps, and you all confirm why. I understand it a bit better now. Still don't intend to drink it, because I don't like coffee. Will try hot choc and chai with coconut butter. Sounds jummy. Thanks again!

  2. KyleGG

    Why would he tell you that coffee is necessary for keto? Mind bogglingly dumb.

  3. magosaurus

    It is incredibly dumb. Atkins actually advised against coffee in the ketogenic phase of his diet. That said, I don't really think it matters one way or the other.
