Lactic Acid Fermentation In Muscle Cells Due To Exercise
Is gout caused by an error in nucleic acid metabolism that leads to a buildup of uric acid in body fluids?
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
Lactic acidosis: Lactic acid is an end product of "anerobic metabolism". Normally cells use oxygen as a substrate for metabolism however if there is not enough oxygen available cells have an altered metabolic process where the end product is lactic acid Treatment is aimed at restoring normal perfusion. Individuals who exercise can generate lactate but it is rapidly removed due to a healthy cardiovascular system ...Read more
No: Lactic acid is a normal by-product of muscle overload exercises or anaerobic exercise. There are two types of soreness related to exercise. The first type is immediate soreness which you feel during or directly following exercise. The second type is delayed onset muscle soreness which you feel the day following training. There are a few solutions to cope with your sore muscles. ...Read more
Can lactic acid build up from workouts produce symptoms of lactose intolerance in people who are lactose intolerant?
Lactic acid: This is the by product of anaerobic metabolism. Athlete's train very rigorously to both adapt to this and condition so that they get to anaerobic glycolysis later in their sport. Everyone has a different tolerance to the pain that comes from Lactic Acid as well as the level at which it occurs ( based on training). The only thing you can do is to do your best in your sport . ...Read more
Stress/habits=yes: Stress is known to increase acidity in the stomach but heartburn is mechanical. If the site where your swallow tube enters the stomach does not fully close, stomach acid will push up & cause heartburn when the stomach churns/squeezes food. Laying down after a feed adds pressure to the backwash. Consuming caffeine or nicotine keeps the site open. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it true that taking a proton pump inhibitor for acid reflux can cause bad breath by allowing bacteria / fungi to accumulate in high pH environment?
See details: I have probably answered this question over a hundred times. Studies have conclusively shown that even the lowest purine diets lower serum uric acid less than 10%. If you have no history of gout or renal stones, there is no compelling reason to do anything. If you do have these issues, you should be on allopurinol. ...Read more
Do Tums (calcium carbonate) cause indigestion due to lowering stomach pH ? Does this stop the release of enzymes in the small intestine b/c thechyme isn't acidic enough?
Not that way: Tums (calcium carbonate) act as antacid (for the acid already made), and will raise stomach ph. Small intestine is alkaline not acidic. Tums can cause constipation (all calcium supps can), gassiness, bloat, calcium carbonate can increase risk for kidney stones (calcium citrate won't-as much). Calcium also stimulates stomach to produce more acid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sure it does...: The high acid environment of your stomache, inresponse to food ingestion, is needed to activate some digestive proteins such as enterokinase and tripsynogens (and many others) to help digest the foods u consume. Antacid use is thus not natural and can affect the process of digestion, but some people need antacid to help with pain/ulcers etc...It is compliacted process. Have fun learning. ...Read more
How can bacterial overgrowth , a common consequence of gastric surgeries , lead to changes in bile acids that upset bile function ?
Dysbiosis possible: It is equally possible that the antibiotics you took made your normal flora out of balance. When you have major surgery you are given broad spectrum antibiotics to prevent infection. But the antibiotics kill the good bacteria is well as the bad bacteria, then they get out of balance. Sometimes if you take probiotics, that can restore the balance and make things better. ...Read more
If muscles are made up of protein, eating a diet rich in protein can help in recovering faster in strains/pulls/minor tear.Especially cremaster muscle?
Muscle Health: Yes. Of course. Also using muscles by moving or exercising; stretching out when strenuously using muscles.... Sleeping well. So lots of good reasons to health. Now specifically you seem to be having pain much longer than any other man i know with a minor scrotal or cremaster muscle injury. If you have not gotten to the doctor monday is coming and perhaps it is time. ...Read more
Uncertain: But supplementation may help. See the article below. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20307398. ...Read more
That's the 1st rx: You don't get to that stage by eating a balanced diet.You would be consuming an excess of carbs and or fats with little protein and or starving so much your body was converting your muscles to sugar to keep you alive.Gradually increasing the caloric intake,including protein would be the first stage of treatment.Re-feeding too fast can trigger "refeeding"syndrome. This should be supervised. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
