Watch: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivQE7...) How to Identify Renal Failure Renal failure, also known as kidney failure, is a condition that can take two different forms: acute, when it presents itself very suddenly, and chronic, when it develops slowly over at least three months. Acute kidney failure has the potential to lead to chronic renal failure. During both types of renal failure your kidneys arent able to perform the necessary functions your body needs to stay healthy. Despite this similarity between types, the causes, symptoms, and treatments for the two kinds of renal failure vary significantly. Learning about the symptoms and causes of this disease and being able to differentiate between the two forms can be beneficial if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with renal failure.

The Acidosis Of Chronic Renal Failure.

1. Med Clin North Am. 1983 Jul;67(4):845-58. The acidosis of chronic renal failure is not due to bicarbonate wastage per se;rather, bicarbonate reabsorption per nephron is markedly enhanced. The ability tolower the urine pH is preserved. While overall ammonium production may bedecreased in chronic renal failure, both ammonium production and excretion aremarkedly increased when expressed per remaining nephron. Titratable acidexcretion in chronic renal failure is essentially maximal, owing to the effect ofparathyroid hormone on phosphate excretion by the kidney. Thus, it appears thatthe acidosis of chronic renal failure is solely the consequence of the reduction in functional renal mass. Extrarenal buffering may contribute substantially tothe maintenance of a near normal acid-base status in patients with markedreduction in glomerular filtration rate. That homeostasis is so well preserveduntil glomerular filtration rate falls to approximately 10 per cent of normal is remarkable; the price, however, may be considerable. Prolonged acidosis maymagnify the tendency of renal failure to cause osteodystrophy. An obvioustreatment for the acidosis of renal failure is exogenous alkali therapy. Continue reading >>

    I've been keto for 1 month now and have only lost 6 pounds. I have gained about 3 pounds over that last 2weeks. So technically I've only lost 3pounds. I haven't measured my inches again yet but I'm not feeling like my clothes are fitting loser at all. I haven't been counting macros just keeping my carbs down to 20 per day. I have no idea how to figure the macros so I just keep trying to keep the carbs low is that why I'm not moving much in the direction I want? I do cardio at least 3x a week for 30 min or more. I do feel more energy but seem to not be losing. Ugh!

    Glad to know you are feeling more energy!
    When doing keto for the first time, there are a few common traps/mistakes. From your post, you mention that you track carbs (which is great!). I didn't see a statement about tracking protein, though. There is a common mistake of eating too much protein, and not enough fat. A good target is 1 gram protein per kg lean body mass. Perhaps, this may be something that needs to be looked at?
    Here's a good compilation of advice for keto newbies. Maybe there is something else in here that may trigger more investigation:

    1. The first month or two can be expensive As you change from a diet that is predominantly carbohydrate based to one that is 95% protein and good fats combined, it can be expensive. The cost of flour, rice, cereal and vegetable oil is significantly less than the cost of beef, pork, chicken, avocados and coconut oil.

Metabolic Acidosis: Practice Essentials, Background, Etiology

Metabolic acidosis is a clinical disturbance characterized by an increase in plasma acidity. Metabolic acidosis should be considered a sign of an underlying disease process. Identification of this underlying condition is essential to initiate appropriate therapy. (See Etiology, DDx, Workup, and Treatment.) Understanding the regulation of acid-base balance requires appreciation of the fundamental definitions and principles underlying this complex physiologic process. Go to Pediatric Metabolic Acidosis and Emergent Management of Metabolic Acidosis for complete information on those topics. An acid is a substance that can donate hydrogen ions (H+). A base is a substance that can accept H+ ions. The ion exchange occurs regardless of the substance's charge. Strong acids are those that are completely ionized in body fluids, and weak acids are those that are incompletely ionized in body fluids. Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is considered a strong acid because it is present only in a completely ionized form in the body, whereas carbonic acid (H2 CO3) is a weak acid because it is ionized incompletely, and, at equilibrium, all three reactants are present in body fluids. See the reactions below. Th Continue reading >>

    Ketosis & BG

    Has anyone ever made a correlation between their blood sugar numbers and Ketosis? I imagine it would be different for everyone. seems to me that if the BG went down to x then you would switch into ketosis for fuel needs. Too high a BG and you wouldn't be in ketosis. Or am I off track here and it is purely the carb count that matters? I have read how atkins suggested increasing carbs each week to find the right level of carbs to maintain weight on his diet.
    Any ideas or thoughts?

  2. MarkM

    You can be in ketosis and have high blood sugar levels but low insulin levels. This what happens to T1s at onset, but it gets worse and there can be ketoacidosis. T2s, if they are insulin resistant and/or insulin deficient, can also be in ketosis and have above normal blood glucose levels.
    Normal people go in and out of ketosis every day. But for someone who has normal insulin production and insulin sensitivity, sustained ketosis would only occur if carb consumption dropped below what is needed to satisfy the normal daily glucose requirement. Some say this is 130 grams of carb a day. Low carbers will tell you it is a lot lower, based on their observations of ketone test results and eating patterns.
    That is my take on it anyway. And in answer to your question, no, I don't think there is a clear correlation there.

Current Status Of Bicarbonate In Ckd

Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, Case Western Reserve University, University Hospital Case Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio Dr. Thomas H. Hostetter, Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, Case Western Reserve University, University Hospital Case Medical Center, 11100 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44106. Email: Thomas.Hostetter{at}uhhospitals.org Metabolic acidosis was one of the earliest complications to be recognized and explained pathologically in patients with CKD. Despite the accumulated evidence of deleterious effects of acidosis, treatment of acidosis has been tested very little, especially with respect to standard clinical outcomes. On the basis of fundamental research and small alkali supplementation trials, correcting metabolic acidosis has a strikingly broad array of potential benefits. This review summarizes the published evidence on the association between serum bicarbonate and clinical outcomes. We discuss the role of alkali supplementation in CKD as it relates to retarding kidney disease progression, improving metabolic and musculoskeletal complications. Patients with CKD experience a multitude of abnormalities and disabilities, among which metabolic acidosis Continue reading >>

    Why can't fat be converted into Glucose?

    So the reason cited is that beta oxidation/metabolism of fats leads to formation of acetyl coa, a 2 carbon molecule, and that because of that it cannot be converted back into glucose.
    Why exactly is that the case?
    If Glucogenic amino acids can be converted into citric acid cycle intermediates and then turn back into glucose via gluconeogensis, then why cant Fatty Acids which yield Acetyl Coa. Can't you just have Acetyl Coa enter the citric acid cycle and produce the same intermediates that the glucogenic amino acids creat?

Can't you just have Acetyl Coa enter the citric acid cycle and produce the same intermediates that the glucogenic amino acids creat?
    Click to expand... Both glucose and fatty acids can be stored in the body as either glycogen for glucose (stored mainly in the liver or skeletal cells) or for FA's, as triacylglycerides (stored in adipose cells). We cannot store excess protein. It's either used to make other proteins, or flushed out of the body if in excess; that's generally the case but we try to make use of some of that energy instead of throwing it all away.
    When a person is deprived of nutrition for a period of time and glycogen stores are depleted, the body will immediately seek out alternative energy sources. Fats (stored for use) are the first priority over protein (which requires the breakdown of tissues such as muscle). We can mobilize these FA's to the liver and convert them to Acetyl-CoA to be used in the TCA cycle and generate much needed energy. On the contrary, when a person eats in excess (a fatty meal high in protein), it's more efficient to store fatty acids as TAG's over glycogen simply because glycogen is extremely hydrophilic and attracts excess water weight; fatty acids are largely stored anhydrously and so you essentially get more bang for your buck. This is evolutionary significant and why birds are able to stay light weight but fly for periods at a time, or why bears are able to hibernate for months at a time. Proteins on the other hand may be used anabolically to build up active tissues (such as when your working out those muscles), unless you live a sedentary lifestyle (less anabolism and therefore, less use of the proteins). As part of the excretion process, protein must be broken down to urea to avoid toxic ammonia and in doing so, the Liver can extract some of that usable energy for storage as glycogen.
    Also, it is worth noting that it is indeed possible to convert FA's to glucose but the pathway can be a little complex and so in terms of energy storage, is not very efficient. The process involves converting Acetyl-CoA to Acetone (transported out of mitochondria to cytosol) where it's converted to Pyruvate which can then be used in the Gluconeogenesis pathway to make Glucose and eventually stored as Glycogen. Have a look for yourself if your interested: http://www.ploscompbiol.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1002116.g003/originalimage (and this excludes the whole glycogenesis pathway, which hasn't even begun yet).
    TLDR: it's because proteins have no ability to be stored in the body, but we can convert them to glycogen for storage during the breakdown process for excretion. Also, in terms of energy, it's a more efficient process than converting FA's to glycogen for storage.

    This is where biochem comes in handy. Czarcasm gives a really good in depth answer, but a simpler approach is to count carbons. The first step of gluconeogenesis(formation of glucose) requires pyruvate, a 3 carbon molecule. Acetyl Co-A is a 2 carbon molecule, and most animals lack the enzymes (malate synthase and isocitrate lyase) required to convert acetyl co-A into a 3 carbon molecule suitable for the gluconeogenesis pathway. The ketogenic pathway is not efficient, as czarcasm pointed out. While acetyl co-A can indeed be used to form citric acid intermediates, these intermediates will be used in forming ATP, not glucose. Fatty acid oxidation does not yield suitable amounts of pyruvate, which is required for gluconeogenesis. This is part of why losing weight is fairly difficult for those that are overweight, we can't efficiently directly convert fat to glucose, which we need a fairly constant supply of. Sorry, that got a little long-winded
