Is onglyza (saxagliptin) safe for long term treatment? Possible pancreatitis and thyroid cancer? How to avoid pancreatitis, lactic acidosis, & ketoacidosis?
Lactic acidosis is the buildup of lactic acid in the blood, either from an increase in the body's production or the kidney being unable to remove lactic acid effectively. The most common causes are intense exercise (increased production of lactic acid) or kidney failure (unable to effectively remove lactic acid from blood). Other causes include blood infections (sepsis) and inability to ...Read more

I take Lactulose and Miralax daily for severe constipation. It started causing diarreah but my doc said that's okay. Is that safe? Lactic acidosis?
With septic shock: It is a marker for end organ damage due to inadequate oxygen reception or utilization. When sepsis progresses to shock we will follow lactate (its pka is 4, so its never really acid in the blood) as a marker of our success in getting blood and oxygen to the peripheral tissues. So... In sepsis itself (without shock) it is rare, but in septic shock lactate is almost always elevated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Unlikely: Theoretically Metformin can cause lactic acidosis but in setting of normal kidney function it is extremely unlikely. Liver disease and concurrent alcohol use can also increase the risk. Talk to your health care provider if you have any of the above risk factors to determine the risk of lactic acidosis. ...Read more
See below: La arises from impairment of gluconeogenesis. Lactic acid is generated both in the liver and muscle and is oxidized to pyruvic acid and then converted via the gluconeogenenic pathway to g6p. Accumulation of g6p inhibits conversion of lactate to pyruvate. The Lactic Acid level rises during fasting as glucose falls. In people with gsd i, it may not fall entirely to normal even when gluc levels r nml. ...Read more

Lactic acidosis: Severe lactic acidosis (la) is often associated with poor prognosis. Recognition and correction of the underlying process is the major step in the treatment of this serious condition. Intravenous administration of sodium bicarbonate (sb) has been the mainstay in the treatment of lactic acidosis. Dialysis, peritoneal in particular, can also be used in some cases to avoid a massive sb load. ...Read more
Normally our body chemistry is kept in a narrow range, and in particular the amount of acid in the body is kept within a narrow range. The amount of acid is measured by a value called the ph. It is normally a value between 7.35 and 7.45, values below 7.35 are considered to be "acidotic" a patient with this value of the blood chemistry ...Read more
