Hyperchloremic Acidosis

Normal human physiological pH is 7.35 to 7.45. A decrease in pH below this range is acidosis, an increase in this range is alkalosis. Hyperchloremic acidosis is a metabolic disease state disease state where acidosis (pH less than 7.35) with an ionic chloride increase develops.Understanding the physiological pH buffering process is important. The primary pH buffer system in the human body is the HCO3 (Bicarbonate)/CO2 (carbon dioxide) chemical equilibrium system. Where: HCO3 functions as an alkalotic substance.CO2 functions as an acidic substance. Therefore, increases in HCO3 or decreases in CO2 will make blood more alkalotic. The opposite is also true where decreases in HCO3 or an increase in CO2 will make blood more acidic. CO2 levels are physiologically regulated by the pulmonary system through respiration, whereas the HCO3 levels are regulated through the renal system with reabsorption rates. Therefore, hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis is a decrease in HCO3 levels in the blood. Anytime a metabolic acidosis is suspected, it is extremely useful to calculate the anion gap. This is defined as: Where Nais plasma sodium concentration, HCO3 is plasma bicarbonate concentration, and Cl Continue reading >>

  1. One of our CDI noted an elevated lactic acid and queried the physician for a diagnosis. The patient did not have Sepsis. Our physician advisor said not to do that because the next lactic acid was normal. She said we should also be looking for the underlying cause of the lactic acidosis and not querying for the diagnosis. A diagnosis of lactic acidosis will give us a CC. Other CDI's have said that if the elevated lactic acid was treated, monitored or evaluated we should be querying for the diagnosis. Does anyone have any direction on how this should be handled?
    Is lactic acidosis always inherent in other conditions and that's what we should focus on?
    What can we pick up the diagnosis by itself as a CC / when should we query to get to documented in the chart?
    Are there any other clinical parameters we should be looking at when evaluating whether we should query such as the anion gap?
    Is there a specific treatment for metabolic acidosis?

  2. What a timely comment. Recently, our coding auditor suggested that we should always keep an eye out for the cc "acidosis". It seems to me that lactic acidosis could be inherent to the disease process of sepsis and therefore should not be captured. Any thoughts?
    Yvonne B RN CDI Salinas, CA.

  3. Hello all! I agree, I believe lactic acidosis is inherent to sepsis. It is one of the most important indicators that gives the clnician a clue that sepsis may be present. Our fluid administration policy was actually developed on the lactic acid result: the higher the number, the more fluid we bolused (in non-CHF patients, of course). In cases were Sepsis is determined not to be present, we will query the provider, providing they treated or monitored the acidosis in some manner

Cholestyramine is a bile acid sequestrant that has been used in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia, pruritus due to elevated bile acid levels, and diarrhea due to bile acid malabsorption. This medication can rarely cause hyperchloremic nonanion gap metabolic acidosis, a complication featured in this report of an adult male with concomitant acute kidney injury. This case emphasizes the caution that must be taken in prescribing cholestyramine to patients who may also be volume depleted, in renal failure, or taking sp Continue reading >>

    Following the success of Gary Taubes' books claiming carbs cause obesity, he founded NuSI (www.nusi.org) to raise money for reasearch. NuSI along with NIH funded a study intended to prove/disprove Taubes' carb/insulin/obesity link. The study has been complete for some time but hasn't been published. One of the principal investigators in the study presented some of the findings at the 2016 International Conference on Obesity earlier this month.
    Some money quotes:
    “The loss of fat mass slowed down on a low-carb, high-fat diet.”

    “…it took the full 28 days of a ketogenic diet to lose the same amount of fat as was lost in the first 15 days of the normal carbohydrate diet.”
    Dr. Hall’s conclusion: no metabolic advantage to a ketogenic diet. Carb-Insulin theory of obesity falsified.
    Here's an interview with Dr. Hall at the conference:

    I personally thought the high fat diet was bad for a number of health reasons. Interesting study that showed a high fat low calorie diet took longer to lose the same amount of weight as the a low calorie high carb diet.
    I will love to read the paper when it comes out.
    I've been running a low caloried diet 20%-25% protein, 20-25% fat, and 45-55% carb diet for 8 months. I've lost 61 lbs. So as far as I'm concerned a balanced diet will cause weight loss great weigth loss...
    If you ever see a link to the paper on the study, please post an new update with the link.

    Metformin Induced Lactic Acidosis! ... It can happen to anyone!

    How many questions do you ask your doctor, pharmacist or medical team concerning your nedications?
    How much in the way of research do you do on your own pertaining to medications and treatment that has been prescribed, or administered unto you?
    Let's talk about the diabetes medication, "Metformin" and a serious complication that it can cause called " Lactic Acidosis" in some people.
    What is Metformin induced Lactic Acidosis?
    Diabetic Connect family member "granniesophie" sent me this message, which I am sharing with everyone here (with her permission) concerning "Metformin and Lactic Acidosis" from a very personal perspective, her very own words!
    " I have to sit on my hands everytime a Metformin discussion comes up! I have just been diagnosed, after 4 months of tests and pain and losing 20 pounds for no reason and 2 different doctors not having a clue until just a few days ago, with Lactic Acidosis, caused by Metformin. This is a very rare side effect wihich only affects 5% of users. I'd been on it for over 6 years now, and it just came up in June. It can be fatal if not caught in time. It has also done damage to my kidneys, which the doctors hope can be reversed.
    The FDA says this is not a side effect, and studies are out on it, but there is a black box warning on it that it can cause Lactic Acidosis in some people. I have to report it to the FDA.
    This is a dangerous drug, and I may never be 100 percent-
    I have just begun taking Lantus, since the doctor no longer wants me on any oral meds until we can assess the damage that the Met may have caused long term.
    I am one sick human and I have other meds that have been causing issues now as well, related or not. So I am being juggled on all my meds in hopes that there is no long term damage.
    Whether this gets mentioned in discussions or not (and I am not going to) people should be aware that the Gold Standard of Diabetes treatment has some darn nasty thorns."
    If you have any questions, or concerns about Metformin and Lactic Acidosis talk to your doctor or pharmacist, if you have any questions that you would like to ask "Sonya" personally concerning this you can contact her here:
