What is SERUM ALBUMIN? What does SERUM ALBUMIN mean? SERUM ALBUMIN meaning, definition & explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Serum albumin, often referred to simply as blood albumin, is an albumin (a type of globular protein) found in vertebrate blood. Human serum albumin is encoded by the ALB gene. Other mammalian forms, such as bovine serum albumin, are chemically similar. Serum albumin is produced by the liver, occurs dissolved in blood plasma and is the most abundant blood protein in mammals. Albumin is essential for maintaining the oncotic pressure needed for proper distribution of body fluids between blood vessels and body tissues; without albumin, the high pressure in the blood vessels would force more fluids out into the tissues. It also acts as a plasma carrier by non-specifically binding several hydrophobic steroid hormones and as a transport protein for hemin and fatty acids. Too much or too little circulating serum albumin may be harmful. Albumin in the urine usually denotes the presence of kidney disease. Occasionally albumin appears in the urine of normal persons following long standing (postural albuminuria). Albumin functions primarily as a carrier protein for steroids, fatty acids, and thyroid hormones in the blood and plays a major role in stabilizing extracellular fluid volume by contributing to oncotic pressure (known also as colloid osmotic pressure) of plasma. Because smaller animals (for example rats) function at a lower blood pressure, they need less oncotic pressure to balance this, and thus need less albumin to maintain proper fluid distribution. Albumin is synthesized in the liver as preproalbumin which has an N-terminal peptide that is removed before the nascent protein is released from the rough endoplasmic reticulum. The product, proalbumin, is in turn cleaved in the Golgi vesicles to produce the secreted albumin.

Payperview: Serum Potassium Concentration In Acidemic States - Karger Publishers

Serum Potassium Concentration in Acidemic States I have read the Karger Terms and Conditions and agree. It has been generally accepted that acidosis results in hyperkalemia because of shifts of potassium from the intracellular to the extracellular compartment. There is ample clinical and experimental evidence, however, to support the conclusion that uncomplicated organic acidemias do not produce hyperkalemia. In acidosis associated with mineral acids (respiratory acidosis, end-stage uremic acidosis, NH4CI- or CaCl2-induced acidosis), acidemia per se, results in predictable increases in serum potassium concentration. In acidosis associated with nonmineral organic acids (diabetic and alcoholic acidosis, lactic acidosis, methanol and the less common forms of organic acidemias secondary to methylmalonic and isovaleric acids, and ethylene glycol, paraldehyde and salicylate intoxications), serum potassium concentration usually remains within the normal range in uncomplicated cases. A number of factors, however, may be responsible for hyperkalemia in some of these patients other than the acidemia per se. These include dehydration and renal hypoperfusion, preexisting renal disease, hyperc Continue reading >>

    So, for the past few nights, I've had quite a bit of trouble falling asleep. My body is very tired, but I've just been unable to sleep as soundly as I normally do. At first, I thought it might have been the dairy I was including in my diet, so I cut that out. The sleeping troubles persisted. I just realized that I've been eating fewer carbohydrates than ever (I don't really keep count, but I believe it's been around 100 grams or less each day for the past two weeks or so), so I think my body might have entered ketosis. I do have some of the other "symptoms" -- I have a funny taste in the back of my mouth, I'm thirsty more often than usual (I still drink plenty of water), I feel fatigued often, etc.
    I won't mind dealing with this as long as it eventually subsides, but I would like to know how long it will last, given that I continue to eat the same amount of carbohydrates. If you think I need to eat more or less, go for it; any advice will help. As a side note, I do some form of exercise every day, usually in the form of a light bike ride or a walk, and I do some heavy lifting two to three times per week.
    Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

    if youre lifting you need more carbs thats why you feel tired. experiment with eating more of them.

    From what I gather, some people get over the sleep issues when they get fully acclimated to burning fatty acids for fuel. However, not everyone goes back to their former sleep habits...as long as they are on a low carb diet. You can try taking a tryptophan supplement before bedtime. It helps me. Also, magnesium (chelated for easy absorption).

Ph Of The Blooe - 8 - Potassium And Ph - M J Bookallil

It is commonly considered that there are associations between potassium and hydrogen ion metabolism. One such is an association between K+ states and alkalosis. It is often stated as a cause and effect relationship, i.e. that the low K+ states will produce an metabolic alkalosis. This hypothesis has been refuted a number of times. An alkalosis can occur without a K+ abnormality (acute pyloric obstruction) and a stable K+ abnormality without an alkalosis ( Kassirer et al, (b) 1966 ; Jones et al, 1982 ). In a K+ deficient state an alkalosis can develop as the K deficiency is corrected (Belich et al, 1966) and conversely a metabolic acidosis can be induced by means of K+ deprivation with a resulting K+ deficiency ( Burnell et al, 1974 ). An alkalosis causes renal loss of K but the low K state ( Kassirer et al, 1966a ) does not per se seem to cause an alkalosis. (This is well discussed in review articles by Schwartz et al, 1968 and 1978 ). In any case, if an alkalosis and a low K state co-exist, both have to be corrected. Potassium salts of organic acids will not correct the alkalosis associated with a potassium deficiency ( Aber et al, 1962 ). Sodium chloride will correct the alkalos Continue reading >>

    I have been keto adapted for about 4 months now. Lost 30 pounds and 2 pant sizes and still going. The experience has been great overall. But there's one little hair in the soup, for me at least.
    I can't tolerate caffeine when I'm in ketosis. It makes me super jittery, I feel like I'm starving and I get really anxious. I started keto a few months back and go off of it for a while. While I was not in ketosis, I could handle caffeine just fine.
    For now, I just avoid caffeine, but man, I miss coffee.
    Has anyone else experienced this?

    I had to give up coffee in particular which was my main source of caffeine several years ago, too much energy and not the good kind of energy

  3. BigTigerPaw

    For me its been the opposite. Before keto, i was caffeine sensitive, even starbucks decaf had enough caffeine to make me anxious. Now I can drink regular coffee from Starbucks and be ok...which is weird because its been months since I drank coffee. But I started again after starting keto, and I expected to have a very low tolerance to it. Instead, I feel like it doesn't affect me.

High Serum Potassium Levels And Cardiac Arrest

The amount of potassium (K+) in the blood determines the excitability of nerve and muscle cells, including the heart muscle or myocardium. When potassium levels in the blood rise, this reduces the electrical potential and can lead to potentially fatal abnormal heart rhythms. High serum potassium levels also called hyperkalemia can be life-threatening and requires immediate therapy. There are several conditions which can significantly affect serum potassium levels and cause them to rise. Metabolic acidosis causes a decrease in serum pH which has a direct effect on serum levels of potassium. When serum pH drops (metabolic acidosis) serum potassium rises, and potassium shifts from intracellular to extracellular (into the blood). Another condition that is a common cause of hyperkalemia is end-stage renal disease. When the kidneys fail, they can no longer remove excess potassium, and it accumulates in the blood. Signs and symptoms of hyperkalemia include weakness, ascending paralysis, and respiratory failure. There are some ECG signs that may suggest hyperkalemia. Mild hyperkalemia can cause peaked T waves. As potassium levels continue to rise, you may see flattened p-waves, prolonged P Continue reading >>

    This will be a huge field in coming years, I was a bit "meh" when I first heard about them - kinda like the idea of the whole raspberry ketone scam - however having seen more information there actually seems like there's a fair bit of promise in them.
    I'm still a bit wary of the idea, keto-adaptation takes a fair while to properly take, I'm not 100% convinced flooding the body with ketones is ideal considering even a regular low-carber still spills a bunch of ketones in urine and breath. I'll need to see some data on actual utilisation vs waste.

    US$79 bucks for something you can get by eating steak and bacon and eggs, or even MCT/coconut oil if you must, hmm.
    Keto Force contains the endogenous ketone body beta-hydroxybutrate (BHB) in sodium and potassium salt form. Ingestion of Keto Force will raise the levels of blood ketones (BHB and AcAc) for 2.5-3.0 hours after ingestion. When taken an hour before exercise this product has been shown to decrease the amount of oxygen consumed at a given power output.
    It is suggested that this product be consumed during the initial stages of a ketogenic diet (three times a day for first 2-3 days) to accelerate ketosis and ease metabolic transition. The product may also be consumed prior to high intensity aerobic exercise to enhance performance.
    *This product has an alkaline pH 10-11 so it is best mixed with an acidic beverage (i.e. diet lemonade, grapefruit juice, etc) prior to ingestion.
    Contains 480mL.
