Can you tell me if i only eat protein, in large amounts for a very long time could i get metabolic acidosis?

Can you tell me if i only eat protein, in large amounts for a very long time could i get metabolic acidosis?

Maybe: As dietary protein is broken down, acids are produced. The more protein intake, the more acids produced. Healthy kidneys can help excrete these acids as well as contribute to generation of a system to buffer the acids in the blood. However if kidney disease develops, the kidney capacity to handle an acid load is diminished and can lead to a metabolic acidosis. Hope this answers your question. ...Read more

LOW PROTEIN: Hello ~ at age 89y it most likely means that there is not enough protein in your diet. If you increase FISH and MEAT and poultry in your diet this will correct. You can also increase protein by drinking BOOST or ENSURE protein drinks as well. Don't overdo them because if you do they give you diarrea! But 1 twice a day would be great ! thanks ...Read more

Vegetables, especially beans, are relatively high in protein value so be careful of smoothies and even v8 type juices.Milk and other dairy products have relatively high protein.

Not an easy question: If this was one reading it may not mean much. Lab tests like those described often fluctuate. If you are concerned, ask for the tests to be repeated and ask your physician to interpret the findings as compared to the original tests. ...Read more

Is it safe to dismiss a positive ANA speckled with a titer of 1:640 if CBC ok. Lupus panel negative. Metabolic ok. Urine ok. Serum protein ok?

Is it safe to dismiss a positive ANA speckled with a titer of 1:640 if CBC ok. Lupus panel negative. Metabolic ok. Urine ok. Serum protein ok?

Yes and no: We have a saying in pathology / lab medicine, "treat the person, not the labs." plenty of healthy folks have medium-titer speckled ana's. The real question is, "do we want to treat you for lupus or whatever, with all the unpleasantness that this involves?" i think the answer is "no" based on what you're shared if your physician agrees. Remember the ANA should new symptoms develop. Good question. ...Read more

Yes: Mri is fine but be prepared for normal results. An elevated sed rate and ANA may indicate an inflammatory process in the body. A thorough work up would include hormone evaluation, sleep patterns, infection/immune system testing as well as nutrition review. These presentations can be frustrating so find a doctor that will take the time to listen and evaluate. ...Read more
