Acidosis (Definition)

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

What is renal tubular acidosis? What are its symptoms and how can it be cured?

What is renal tubular acidosis? What are its symptoms and how can it be cured?

Medical rx, no cure: Renal tubular acidosis(rta) involves failure of kidneys to acidify urine by not contributing acid or resorbing bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) (alkalinity). Several types are known involving proximal, distal, and combination of both tubules of kidney.Sometime inherited.Complications can include osteomalacia(adults), rockets(child), stunting of growth, damaged kidneys, stones, renal failure.Nephrologist needed. ...Read more

What is renal tubular acidosis and what's the cure for it? Please explain. Thank you.

What is renal tubular acidosis and what's the cure for it? Please explain. Thank you.

What RTA is: Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is a disease that occurs when the kidneys fail to excrete acids into the urine, which causes a person's blood to remain too acidic. Without proper treatment, chronic acidity of the blood leads to growth retardation, kidney stones, bone disease, chronic kidney disease, and possibly total kidney failure. See a nephrologist for more information about the types of rta. ...Read more

Can you have renal tubular acidosis with an elevated serum anion gap?

Yes: RTA doesn't cause elevated anion gap, but other disorders that do can be present along with RTA. For example, advanced kidney failure can cause anion gap, and also cause RTA. Usually simple math will show that the anion gap doesn't completely account for the degree of acidosis, and urine tests can demonstrate presence of RTA. ...Read more

What is diabetic keto acidosis?

DKA: A metabolic emergency for patients primarily with type 1 diabetes, DKA symptoms include those of high blood sugars initially. As the ketones build up, patients may have a fruity odor on the breath, get abdominal pain & vomit. Because they're already urinating a lot, dehydration can get bad. Some may breathe fast, get headaches, have altered consciousness. Without proper treatment, death imminent. ...Read more

What causes diabetic keto acidosis?

Dka: Diabetic ketoacidosis is a condition whereby glucose which is used by cells for energy is not made available to the cells due to a lack of insulin. The lack of Insulin causes a dramatic rise in blood sugar triggering a host of meatbolic derangemants including dehydration as well as the production of ketones which are toxic as it raises the bodies acid level and will affect potassium levels. ...Read more

What exactly is hyperchloremic acidosis?

Loss of fixed base: This is lost from the body when the proximal renal tubule does a poor job of reabsorbing bicarbonate, (sodium bicarbonate) drainage of pancreatic fluid, diarrhea (usually rich in potassium and bicarbonate), and a few less common entities. It's a sign on a lab report intended to guide treatment rather than a disease itself. Great question, and thanks for asking. ...Read more

What sort of problem is acidosis of the blood?

What sort of problem is acidosis of the blood?

Let's get specific: In the absence of obvious disease / poisoning, perhaps you have been told you have metabolic acidosis (complicates a host of illnesses and especially some of the diabetes / metabolic syndrome pills) or renal tubular acidosis (mild-to-serious problem handling bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate).) some charlatans diagnose "blood acidosis" without basis. ...Read more

What is hyperchloremic acidosis? What causes it?

Bicarb wasting: This is a physiologic disturbance when the kidney tubules don't do a good job of reabsorbing sodium bicarbonate. Or the bicarb may be wasted as diarrhea, or chloride overloaded by normal saline infusions, ...Read more
