In brief: Depends

If you're on an extremely low carb diet, meaning less than 50g of carbs a day, then your body after a certain amount of time can go into a ketotic state.
(ketosis). Acidic environment of blood. In order for your body to compensate it may cause you to have increased respiratory rate (blow off co2) or urinate in order to cause an alkaline state in your blood. (contraction alkalosis).
