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.

Symptoms Of Acidosis And What Causes It

Our Educational Content is Not Meant or Intended for Medical Advice or Treatment Acidosis is when the body becomes excessively acidic, particularly the body fluids and tissues. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not necessarily true that people should be more alkaline. There are certain parts of the body where the acidity and alkalinity and in-between should be maintained . The blood is slightly alkaline at 7.35 to 7.45. The stomach is at 3.5 or below, and the saliva’s normal pH is between 6.5 - 7.5. They need so to break down food. All in all, the body should be about normal at 7.35 – 7.45. People with acidosis experience several discomforts and sensitivities. The nervous system becomes irritable, so the person becomes edgy and dehydrated. The person tends to have breathing difficulties or sighs frequently like they can’t get enough air. Light and sound sensitivity can also be experiences, especially at night when driving in the dark. A lump in the throat, feeling stuffy in closed rooms, low tolerance to stress , being uncomfortable in high altitudes and abnormal sensitivity to pain are also symptoms of acidosis. This abnormal sensitivity to pain is when a person responds d Continue reading >>

Cardiac failure / congenital cardiac anomalies There is an association between acidosis, acute physiological dysfunction in the neonate and longer term neurodevelopmental abnormalities. Whether the acidosis is causative or only associated with acute organ dysfunction and abnormal neurodevelopment is less certain. The following associations with acidosis have been documented: Acidaemia associated with asphyxia inhibits surfactant production 2 , 3 and increases pulmonary vascular resistance 4 . A pH < 7.15 is associated with reduced myocardial contractility 5 and diaphragmatic activity (in dogs 6 ).

    Can insulin resistance truly be reversed?

    I'm a bit unclear on what "insulin resistance reversal" or "diabetes reversal" really means.
    I was diagnosed as prediabetic about 3 weeks ago. I got a blood meter and my first test was postprandial and showed 191.
    I have been water fasting and eating LCHF since then...except for 3 days which is where I get the following info:
    It appears that "real food carbs" (e.g. carrots, onions, etc.) have virtually no effect on me. A meal with ~ 80 grams of real food carbs moved my blood glucose from 83 to 89.
    It also appears that eating LCHF keeps my blood glucose well < 100 but a single sugar/starch/refined flour meal will spike my blood sugar anywhere from 150 to 160 (I've eaten 2 such meals is where I get this data) and it takes a couple of days for my blood sugar to drop back below 100 (at least at my "dawn phenomenon" readings).
    Is "insulin resistance reversal" truly possible or can insulin resistance only be managed as long as sugar/starch/refined is avoided like the plague?
    I know I can't go back to eating like I used to eat...but it would be nice to hope that one day I will be able to "splurge occasionally" and keep normal blood sugar numbers...

    You might. Some people can some people can't.

  3. qsefthuko

    Apparently LCHF causes a degree of insulin resistance or something. If you have been eating LCHF for a bit and then eat a carby meal it can and probably will raise you higher than you might expect.

Uncontrolled Pancreatic Secretions As A Cause Of Acidosis - Deranged Physiology

Uncontrolled Pancreatic Secretions As a Cause of Acidosis Uncontrollable leakage of pancreatic secretion causes a metabolic acidosis due to the loss of strong cations. Pancreaticoenteric fistula as a cause of normal anion gap metabolic acidosis This is mainly due to the highly bicarbonate-rich fluid issuing from the pancreas. Pancreatic secretions are essentially iso-osmolar with the body fluid, and contain about the same amount of sodium and potassium as the plasma. Not so for the chloride and bicarbonate. Under the influence of VIP (Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide), the pancreatic CTFR (Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane conductance Regulator) constantly secretes chloride into the lumen of the pancreatic duct; this secreted chloride serves as the fodder for a chloride-bicarbonate anion exchanger, which enriches the lumen with bicarbonate as it dechlorinates the pancreatic secretions. The sodium and potassium equilibrate easily across the leaky membranes. Not only that, but it seems that the higher the rate of pancreatic secretion, the more bicarbonate and less chloride is secreted- at least in the disembodied pancreas of the domestic cat . This graph is loosely adopted  from the 196 Continue reading >>

    I've been enjoying reading posts people have made about ketosis, because my husband is complaining a lot about my breath and is very worried about my health on this diet. I'm a 39 year old female and have been eating paleo for about 6 months. I have lost about 8 pounds (went from 112 to 104), but I like being thin. My husband, however, is worried about my weightloss, and wants me to change my diet because of my breath... He tells me my breath is "weird" and smells like a strong "chemical" and that sometimes he doesn't want to kiss me. I don't like the metallic taste in my mouth either. So I started eating a lot of fruit and squash every day and that seems to help tone down the chemically breath sometimes.
    So two questions:
    Does anyone else have an icky "metallic" taste in their mouth due to ketosis? And is this a dangerous sign?
    Is it unhealthy or dangerous to one's health to be in ketosis often...? My husband worries that it could potentially be breaking down my muscles and/or putting strain on my organs if I don't eat more carbs...?

    1) I did when I was VLC and in frequent ketosis, along with constant thirst. It's just a sign that you're in ketosis, it's the ketones on your breath and not necessarily dangerous....but...
    2) For some women, it can be. Keep a very close eye on your menstrual cycle and your weight loss. If your periods become irregular or stop, or you frequently feel fatigued and cold, then you need more carbs.
    The reason behind this is, is that when you're VLC and in ketosis you hardly ever spike your insulin even slightly. This can lead to your body thinking that it's not getting enough food, and the lack of insulin leads to low leptin and low active T3, (thyroid) the result being that you stop losing weight and your body shuts down your reproductive capabilities. (You also will have high levels of t4, as the rT3 is converted to this instead of active T3. Being in ketosis a lot is quite demanding on the liver)
    Add some more starch! (as you have done). You can be low carb and maintain weight without being in ketosis all the time. If you don't need to lose more weigh then it's not necessary. You probably need 40-70g carbs a day
    104 - lucky you!

    Wow, thank you so much for the helpful information! I really do appreciate it. This is really intestesting to me, and I would like to learn more about this. My doctor recommended the paleo diet to me in the first place because my insulin is very low. Ironically, my Thyroid T3 levels are also very low... (I'm on 60 mg of Armour Thyroid daily for this). I almost always feel cold and have raynauds (both of these symptoms since I was about 13 yrs old, way before starting paleo diet). However, my menstral cycle is relatively normal... but some months very painful cramping, and other months none at all. I have no idea about the current condition of my liver... But I'm very interested in how this diet could be affecting my liver. If you have any recommended readings for me to learn more about ketosis or any potential dangers to my liver or thyroid, I would be grateful for you to pass them along. Thank you again!!

  • Respiratory Acidosis Vs Metabolic Acidosis

    Respiratory acidosis is an acid-base balance disturbance due to alveolar hypoventilation. Production of carbon dioxide occurs rapidly and failure of ventilation promptly increases the partial pressure of arterial carbon dioxide (PaCO2). [ 1 ] The normal reference range for PaCO2 is 35-45 mm Hg. Alveolar hypoventilation leads to an increased PaCO2 (ie, hypercapnia). The increase in PaCO2, in turn, decreases the bicarbonate (HCO3)/PaCO2 ratio, the ...
