In terms of acid base disorders, why does metabolic have an acute syndrome compared to respiratory having an acute and chronic phase?

Yes: Dehydration can result in low blood volume or hypovolemia, which affects tissue perfusion and oxygenetion. The tissues are stressed and produce acids that spill into blood, which cause acidity in the blood. The extent of acidity can be tested and give an idea of the severity of the dehydration. ...Read more
Blood gas: Typically a blood gas is drawn to determine your acid base status. ...Read more
COPD...: Emphysema is a form of COPD. Patients with emphysema can have an increase in their carbon dioxide levels since they can't exhale the carbon dioxide normally. This in turn leads to a decrease in the blood pH. This is compensated by the kidneys by keeping bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) in the blood. The end result is a compensated respiratory acidosis. ...Read more

Indirectly, yes: Salt (sodium chloride and others, some with potassium) separates into ions in the body, and these ions play with the acidic and basic molecules in many ways. So a lack or excess of salt can change the electrolyte numbers in response to an acid/base derangement. For instance, potassium usually leaves the cells in acidosis causing an increase; if you're already deficient, that may not be noticeable. ...Read more

Having said that, just the fact that you are asking this question is sufficient to conclude that you do not have serious acid/base disorder. ...Read more
Receptors: Hi. All hormones interact with receptors in target tissues. For steroids, thyroid hormone, and active vitamin D, the specific receptor/hormone complex binds to regulatory elects in DNA in the nucleus and regulate transcription of specific genes. Other amino acid-based hormones (e.g., catecholamines, serotonin) bind to cell surface receptors and transmembrane signaling affects cell physiology. ...Read more
Can you recommend an over-the-counter facial peel for blackheads? Salycilic or glycolic acid based followed with a moisturizer?
