In brief: See below

Metabolic acidosis can be detected by blood teasts.
Patients can present with kussmauls breathing which is deep ventilation or breathing. Some patients have abdominal pain blood tests show a low bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) level and a low co2 level seen on blood gases.This is a serious condition with many causes, commonly seen with diabetic ketoacidosis.
