Ph Of The Blood - 6 - Causes Of Abnormality - M J Bookallil

A rise in concentration of any of these acids in the blood causes a fall in the pH of the blood. Loss of acid from the blood (e.g. into gastric juice) causes a rise in the pH. Only HCl and H2CO3 can be lost from the blood in appreciable quantities. The bases which can cause changes in blood pH are: Administration of base by mouth or parenterally may cause blood pH to rise if rate of excretion does not match rate of administration. Loss of alkaline fluid from bowel (diarrhoea, intestinal obstruction or intestinal fistulae), or urine (after acetoazolamide) will cause blood pH to fall. 6.3 CLINICAL CLASSIFICATION OF CAUSES OF CHANGES IN BLOOD pH Clinical states of pH disturbence (acid-base inbalance) can conveniently be divided into two groups, i.e. (a)respiratory and (b)metabolic or non-respiratory. The reasons for this division into respiratory and non-respiratory are that: i) the compensatory mechanisms ( Section 3.5.1 ) and treatments ( Section 7 ) of the two types are different.; ii) the recognition of non-respiratory disturbances is masked by compensatory alterations in PCO2 and the recognition of changes in pH caused by PCO2 changes are masked by renal compensation. 6.3.1 RESP Continue reading >>

    It turns out that I have been severely under-drinking my water intake. at a mere 50% or less. I was drinking about 5 bottles of water (16oz size) and thought I was hydrated. For a big guy like me (350lbs) this is less than 50% of the required water for my body type to be hydrated.
    Plug in your numbers and see if you are coming near the suggested amount.
    This gives me hope that if I continue to follow my plan, and now drink enough water, I should get better results.

    That water calculator thinks that someone who is 399 pounds and doesn't exercise should drink 6 liters of water. That seems excessive to me.
    Here's an article that was just posted that goes over some of the scientific literature on water intake:
    I've seen a lot of anecdotal evidence, especially here, that more water helps people with weight loss and helps people move through a stall. That article may back this up slightly. Here are a couple of quotes:
    Drinking water can cause mild, temporary increases in metabolism and drinking it about a half hour before meals can make people automatically eat fewer calories.
    One study showed that dieters who drank 500 ml of water before meals lost 44% more weight over a period of 12 weeks, compared to those who didn’t

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the a

Diet-induced Acidosis

Summary: Our bodies are in a state of constant motion. Even when were sleeping, the machinery of the body is at work. Metabolism is the chemical work within our cells that keeps us alive. We often speak of metabolism in relation to digestion and the process of turning the food we eat into energy, but metabolism involves much more. Metabolism is the process in which the chemical reactions within cells de-construct old cells and produce new ones. These chemical reactions also repair damage in tissues and cause growth. All this and much more goes on within our cells at a frenetic pace every moment of every day of our lives Rarely do we give these metabolic processes any thought. We eat , drink, work and play, thinking little about how our diet, thoughts and activities affect us on a cellular level. However, when disease strikes, we sometimes think about our cells and wonder what went wrong. One of the things that can go wrong is acidosis. Acidemia is the medical term given for blood that is too acidic. The commonly used term for acidic blood, though, is acidosis. Technically, acidosis refers to the process that causes blood to be acidic. Nevertheless, in this article, acidosis is the Continue reading >>

    I started keto on Saturday (4 days ago), I have no idea if I've reached ketosis yet but so far I'm enjoying the diet change and whole range of 'forbidden foods' that I've been able to rediscover.
    I had a few symptoms of what I'm assuming was dehydration on Sunday night (lightheaded-ness and heart palpitations, which scared the shit out of me) so have upped my water intake and sodium to huge heights.
    So now those symptoms have gone, along with the dark yellow typical dehydration pee.
    BUT my pee is now occasionally coming out this insane neon yellow colour. It's nothing I've ever seen before. It literally looks like it could glow in the dark, it's that bright. I know my body (and pee) and I'm 99% sure this isn't dehydration.
    What on earth could it be and should I be worried?

  2. veritay

    Do you take a multivitamin? If so, it's from excess B vitamins.

  3. ChronicYonic

    Yes, it didn't even occur to me that there'd be enough Vitamin B in there but I'd say that's most like the explanation! Thanks!

An Unusual Case Of Severe (fatal) Metabolic Acidosis

An unusual case of severe (fatal) metabolic acidosis Summarized from Saidi H, Mani M. Severe metabolic acidosis secondary to coadministration of creatine and metformin, a case report. Amer J Emerg Med 2010; 28: 388. e5-388. e6. Metabolic acidosis, the most common disturbance of acid-base balance among the critically ill, is characterized by arterial blood gas results that reveal primary decrease in bicarbonate and compensatory decrease in pCO2(a). Blood pH is reduced unless respiratory compensation is complete. It is most often the result of lactic acid accumulation due to circulatory collapse but there are many other causes. A recently published case history describes metabolic (lactic) acidosis occurring in a 42-year-old man. The cause was attributed to the net effect of two drugs: creatine and metformin. The first is commonly self-prescribed by athletes and body builders to improve muscle capacity; and the second is a blood glucose-lowering agent prescribed for diabetes management. This previously healthy man was self-prescribing creatine (5 g/day), when he became ill and was admitted to hospital. Diabetes was diagnosed, stabilized and the patient was discharged in a healthy st Continue reading >>
