Treatment of Metabolic Acidosis in Patients With CKD Wei Chen, MD and Matthew K. Abramowitz, MD, MS Metabolic acidosis is a common complication of chronic kidney disease and believed to contribute to a number of sequelae, including bone disease, altered protein metabolism, skeletal muscle wasting, and progressive GFR loss. Small trials in animal models and humans suggest a role for alkali therapy to lessen these complications. Recent studies support this notion, although more definitive evidence is needed on the long-term benefits of alkali therapy and the optimal serum bicarbonate level. The role of dietary modification should also be given greater consideration. In addition, potential adverse effects of alkali treatment must be taken into Continue reading >>

    > Help! Where's my "getting started" weight loss??

    Please, I hope someone out there can help me!
    A little background:
    I successfully used low carb (Atkins/PP combo) to lose 25 lbs two years ago. When we decided to start a family I was at my ideal weight, but I gained 30 pregnancy pounds PLUS the 25 I'd lost a year earlier. So now my baby is 1 yr old and we're finished with nursing. I'm ready to get back on the plan with a goal of losing 30 lbs.
    I started the induction portion of the diet six days ago eagerly anticipating that first burst of weightloss you get when you first start out. I have been in moderate to deep ketosis for five days, but I have not lost a single pound! I may have even gained a half pound or so. C'mon, I should have at least shed some water weight, no?
    I consider myself to be very well-read and experienced with the LC WOE but I'm perplexed, not to mention really bummed out. How can I be in Ketosis for such an extended period, right at the beginning of my new WOE, and not losing. I have been doing the treadmill every couple of days, drinking water, eating a reasonable quantity according to the plan, and I've never had any food sensitivity problems. To add insult to injury, my DH, eating the same thing, has already lost 6 lbs. Grrr...
    I'm stumped. Any ideas? Advice?

    I didn't lose a pound until my sixth day. I was upset. But everyone on this board kept saying give it a chance. I did and have lost 5 in 3 weeks.
    We have two in diapers, so I don't get to excersize, but I am just going to take my time and know that I have a new way of eating. I grew up drinking a bottle of soda everyday after school in addition to candy. A month ago I came to a realization that I wanted to be healthier. Also, I didn't want to go to size 40 pants.
    My wife tried this way of life and gave up, but she wasn't as committed as you are.

    Since you have dieted before, and since I don't know if you make a habit of yo-yo dieting I can only suggest that currently your body is probably saying "not this again" and hanging on to every fat cell and water it has.
    Low carbing should be looked upon as a way of life and not short term weight loss and then you go back to eating the way you were. Dieting like that will lower your metobolism making it harder and harder to lose weight over time. Aging doesn't help matters either.
    Give it time, the weight will come off again.
    You should be eating 10 to 12 times your weight in calories a day and drinking 64 oz of water plus 8 oz for every 25 pounds you want to lose. Keeping at this rate will assure your system you are not going to starve it to death and it can burn the fat as fuel.

What is BASAL METABOLIC RATE? What does BASAL METABOLIC RATE mean? BASAL METABOLIC RATE meaning - BASAL METABOLIC RATE definition - BASAL METABOLIC RATE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the minimal rate of energy expenditure per unit time by endothermic animals at rest. It is reported in energy units per unit time ranging from watt (joule/second) to ml O2/min or joule per hour per kg body mass J/(hkg)). Proper measurement requires a strict set of criteria be met. These criteria include being in a physically and psychologically undisturbed state, in a thermally neutral environment, while in the post-absorptive state (i.e., not actively digesting food). In bradymetabolic animals, such as fish and reptiles, the equivalent term standard metabolic rate (SMR) is used. It follows the same criteria as BMR, but requires the documentation of the temperature at which the metabolic rate was measured. This makes BMR a variant of standard metabolic rate measurement that excludes the temperature data, a practice that has led to problems in defining "standard" rates of metabolism for many mammals. Metabolism comprises the processes that the body needs to function. Basal metabolic rate is the amount of energy expressed in calories that a person needs to keep the body functioning at rest. Some of those processes are breathing, blood circulation, controlling body temperature, cell growth, brain and nerve function, and contraction of muscles. Basal metabolic rate (BMR) affects the rate that a person burns calories and ultimately whether that individual maintains, gains, or loses weight. The basal metabolic rate accounts for about 60 to 75% of the daily calorie expenditure by individuals. It is influenced by several factors. BMR typically declines by 12% per decade after age 20, mostly due to loss of fat-free mass, although the variability between individuals is high. The body's generation of heat is known as thermogenesis and it can be measured to determine the amount of energy expended. BMR generally decreases with age and with the decrease in lean body mass (as may happen with aging). Increasing muscle mass has the effect of increasing BMR. Aerobic (resistance) fitness level, a product of cardiovascular exercise, while previously thought to have effect on BMR, has been shown in the 1990s not to correlate with BMR when adjusted for fat-free body mass. But anaerobic exercise does increase resting energy consumption (see "aerobic vs. anaerobic exercise"). Illness, previously consumed food and beverages, environmental temperature, and stress levels can affect one's overall energy expenditure as well as one's BMR. BMR is measured under very restrictive circumstances when a person is awake. An accurate BMR measurement requires that the person's sympathetic nervous system not be stimulated, a condition which requires complete rest. A more common measurement, which uses less strict criteria, is resting metabolic rate (RMR).

Metabolic Acidosis

What is metabolic acidosis? The buildup of acid in the body due to kidney disease or kidney failure is called metabolic acidosis. When your body fluids contain too much acid, it means that your body is either not getting rid of enough acid, is making too much acid, or cannot balance the acid in your body. What causes metabolic acidosis? Healthy kidneys have many jobs. One of these jobs is to keep the right balance of acids in the body. The kidneys do this by removing acid from the body through urine. Metabolic acidosis is caused by a build-up of too many acids in the blood. This happens when your kidneys are unable to adequately remove the acid from your blood. What are the signs and symptoms? Not everyone will have signs or symptoms. However, you may experience: Long and deep breaths Fast heartbeat Headache and/or confusion Weakness Feeling very tired Vomiting and/or feeling sick to your stomach (nausea) Loss of appetite If you experience any of these, it is important to let your healthcare provider know immediately. What are the complications of metabolic acidosis if I have kidney disease or kidney failure? Increased bone loss (osteoporosis): Metabolic acidosis can lead to a loss Continue reading >>

    Hi everyone.
    This forum is great and I LOVE the 2KETODudes podcast.. Great job guys.
    I've been doing KETO for about 2.5 months. I wasn't (significantly) overweight (i'm 5'10 and was about 185lbs when I started), i'm healthy and quite active (train 4-6 days a week in Kung Fu, currently training for my Black Sash test in May 2017).
    I started Keto really for 2 reasons:
    - the health benefits I kept hearing about (read KETO clarity and listened to various pod casts)
    - and thought it would be a great way to help prepare me and fuel me during my Black Sash grading (that is typically 7-8 hrs long with only 2 short breaks for water only - no food or nutrition supplements)
    So the idea of being able to turn my body into a FAT burner to help me have an endless supply of energy during my very physically and mentally demanding Martial Arts grading seemed like a logical (and positive) choice.
    Things started very good.. I found the diet quite easy to adapt to (stopping my 1-2 banana a day routine was probably the hardest), and I found within a week, I had significantly more energy that lasted all day long and into the evening (my training often takes me to 10pm)
    Like i said, i wasn't really doing this to lose weight, although it wasn't bad that i actually did lose 10-15 lbs - that didn't hurt.
    The challenge, after about a month or so, I started feeling that although my energy and endurance was good, my strength (pushups, etc) was starting to decrease. Part of my requirements for my coming grading is strength requirements (85 push-ups of various styles and ~200 of various abdominal exercises)
    Am I Crazy? with the amount of training i'm doing, should i be having more Carbs? most of my carbs come from veggies and I'm typically very successful at keeping my daily carb intake to less than 50 grams/day.
    Should I start introducing more "good" carbs (fruits, starchy veggies) to help with strength and muscle growth? I'm just over 3 months away from my test and want to make sure I'm doing the right thing to keep (and regain) my strength while being about to take advantage of the benefits of Keto.
    Please help.

Sodium Bicarbonate Therapy In Patients With Metabolic Acidosis

The Scientific World Journal Volume 2014 (2014), Article ID 627673, 13 pages Nephrology Division, Hospital General Juan Cardona, Avenida Pardo Bazán, s/n, Ferrol, 15406 A Coruña, Spain Academic Editor: Biagio R.

This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Abstract Metabolic acidosis occurs when a relative accumulation of plasma anions in excess of cations reduces plasma pH. Replacement of sodium bicarbonate to patients with sodium bicarbonate loss due to diarrhea or renal proximal tubular acidosis is useful, but there is no definite evidence that sodium bicarbonate administration to patients with acute metabolic acidosis, including diabetic ketoacidosis, lactic acidosis, septic shock, intraoperative metabolic acidosis, or cardiac arrest, is beneficial regarding clinical outcomes or mortality rate. Patients with advanced chronic kidney disease usually show metabolic acidosis due to increased unmeasured anions and hyperchloremia. It has been suggested tha Continue reading >>

  1. Fatty Liver Pain

    Hello everyone!
    I'm curious if anyone else has experienced what I have been experiencing lately. I have had fatty liver for several years now (brought on first by nine months on steroids and high triglycerides). I've read the study that suggests that low carb mobilizes liver fat. Here lately, I've noticed that when my diet becomes more ketogenic, I experience increased liver discomfort - it is in the liver, not the gall bladder btw. It usually lasts for a few days and then subsides. It's not PAIN but rather a gnawing ache - I've experienced it off and on for a few years.
    My theory is that I'm having the symptoms because the keto diet is mobilizing liver fat. Of course, that might be wishful thinking. Anyway, just interested if anyone else has had similar things happen. I'll be having my next lipid/glucose profile check in a few weeks. I'll probably ask for a liver ultrasound to see if there's any change there as well.
    Any feedback is appreciated.
