Potassium And Acidosis

Balance among electrically charged atoms and molecules is essential to maintaining chemical equilibrium in your body. Potassium is the most abundant, positively charged atom inside your cells. Because acids and potassium both have a positive electrical charge in your body, their concentrations are interdependent. Medical conditions that cause an overabundance of acids in your blood, known as acidosis, may affect your blood potassium level, and vice versa. Video of the Day Metabolic acidosis is an abnormally low blood pH caused by overproduction of acids or failure of your kidneys to rid the body of acids normally. With metabolic acidosis, your blood has an abnormally high level of positively charged hydrogen atoms, or hydrogen ions. To reduce the acidity of your blood, hydrogen ions move from your circulation into your cells in exchange for potassium. The exchange of hydrogen for potassium ions helps relieve the severity of acidosis but may cause an abnormally high level of blood potassium, or hyperkalemia. Drs. Kimberley Evans and Arthur Greenberg reported in a September 2005 article published in the "Journal of Intensive Care Medicine" that there is a 0.3 to 1.3 mmol/L increase i Continue reading >>

    Cold/Flu medications on KETO?

    I have had a look around google, and the general thought is to get additional Vit c/fish oil supp - But i have been taking the fish oil and multi vit every day. Not to mention on carb up yest I upped the berries yest for vit c values.
    In terms of 'needing to feel better now' from my sore throat, congestion and bad cough I'm guessing flu sweets/syrups are out of the question. Any advice or links?

    Theraflu, Alka-selter Cold Formula, and products like those work well.

What is ALKALOSIS? What does ALKALOSIS mean? ALKALOSIS meaning - ALKALOSIS pronunciation - ALKALOSIS definition - ALKALOSIS explanation - How to pronounce ALKALOSIS? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Alkalosis is the result of a process reducing hydrogen ion concentration of arterial blood plasma (alkalemia). In contrast to acidemia (serum pH 7.35 or lower), alkalemia occurs when the serum pH is higher than normal (7.45 or higher). Alkalosis is usually divided into the categories of respiratory alkalosis and metabolic alkalosis or a combined respiratory/metabolic alkalosis. Respiratory alkalosis is caused by hyperventilation, resulting in a loss of carbon dioxide. Compensatory mechanisms for this would include increased dissociation of the carbonic acid buffering intermediate into hydrogen ions, and the related excretion of bicarbonate, both of which lower blood pH. Hyperventilation-induced alkalosis can be seen in several deadly central nervous system diseases such as strokes or Rett syndrome. Metabolic alkalosis can be caused by repeated vomiting, resulting in a loss of hydrochloric acid within the stomach content. Severe dehydration, and the consumption of alkali are other causes. It can also be caused by administration of diuretics and endocrine disorders such as Cushing's syndrome. Compensatory mechanism for metabolic alkalosis involve slowed breathing by the lungs to increase serum carbon dioxide, a condition leaning toward respiratory acidosis. As respiratory acidosis often accompanies the compensation for metabolic alkalosis, and vice versa, a delicate balance is created between these two conditions. Metabolic alkalosis is usually accompanied by low blood potassium concentration, causing, e.g., muscular weakness, muscle pain, and muscle cramps (from disturbed function of the skeletal muscles), and muscle spasms (from disturbed function of smooth muscles). It may also cause low blood calcium concentration. As the blood pH increases, blood transport proteins, such as albumin, become more ionized into anions. This causes the free calcium present in blood to bind more strongly with albumin. If severe, it may cause tetany.

    Anyone follow a low carb diet for an extended time and experience ED? I've been on some sort of low carb diet for about 2 yrs now and its been a serious problem. I'm only 21 and am prone to this problem to begin with, but it hasn't been too bad, a problem here and there. But with low carbs sometimes I cant get it or keep it up, which is scary since I sometimes use Viagra and i'm only 21. I know for a 2 week period I took a break and ate carbs I started having morning erections, which now I dont. Well, Trying to get ripped, maybe if I try 60%prot, 30%fat and 20%carbs, especially post-workout that would help. Doing Bev Int type diet of 60%prot, 30%fat and 10%carbs from vegetables. Anyway, anyone else have this problem with low carb diets? If so, how did you remedy the problem. Also, is there any direct correlation between carbs and erections, or am I just screwed either way?

  2. Import

    You're not by any chance taking an ephedra-like product while you're on this low carb diet are you? Some fat burners that contain such compounds cause ED in some men. Never happened to me, of course, uh uh, no way.....

  3. Import

    I have an idea, eat carbs, you do not have to eat low carbs to get ripped. I don't know of any correlation between the two, but if you eat carbs and you can perform then the low carb diet is not for you. It is a DIET for quick weight loss it is not intented for long use.

Effects Of Ph On Potassium: New Explanations For Old Observations

Go to: Abstract Maintenance of extracellular K+ concentration within a narrow range is vital for numerous cell functions, particularly electrical excitability of heart and muscle. Potassium homeostasis during intermittent ingestion of K+ involves rapid redistribution of K+ into the intracellular space to minimize increases in extracellular K+ concentration, and ultimate elimination of the K+ load by renal excretion. Recent years have seen great progress in identifying the transporters and channels involved in renal and extrarenal K+ homeostasis. Here we apply these advances in molecular physiology to understand how acid-base disturbances affect serum potassium. The effects of acid-base balance on serum potassium are well known.1 Maintenance of extracellular K+ concentration within a narrow range is vital for numerous cell functions, particularly electrical excitability of heart and muscle.2 However, maintenance of normal extracellular K+ (3.5 to 5 mEq/L) is under two potential threats. First, as illustrated in Figure 1, because some 98% of the total body content of K+ resides within cells, predominantly skeletal muscle, small acute shifts of intracellular K+ into or out of the extr Continue reading >>

    i remember reading in atkins book (92 version) that if the urine is dark then your in ketosis...well, my urine was dark until today..and maybe other days it may be dark but once or twice it isn't...if someone is in ketosis is it always dark? does that mean i'm not in it anymore? i've been wondering if i may have fallen out of it by hitting 30 carbs daily here and there. it's my TOM this week so my weight hasn't changed AT ALL, 2 weeks now. this happened last month where there was no weight change for 2 weeks during the pms time but the following week i caught up to lose my 15 pounds a month goal....if any one has suggestions or ideas on this subject i'll gladly appreciate it...

  2. MyJourney

    I dont know about dark urine. My urine is never dark because I drink large amounts of water and I am certainly in ketosis. Darker urine, from what I understand, is a sign of dehydration. Perhaps you are thinking of a darker reading on a ketone strip?

  3. stacy0912

    no, i never have used the strips. i do remember reading that there are two ways of telling if your in ketosis if you don't use the strips, one was the color of urine and the other was the low carb 'bad breath'..i drink 80 oz of water a day, sometimes only 60-70 so i don't think i'm dehydrated...
