renal tubular acidosis

page vandalism?[edit]

I clipped the following from the article:

Lactic Acid is good and doesn't cause metabolic acidosis. This is a common misconception. Look up Biochemistry of exercise-induced metabolic acidosis for further explanation and clarification. (Added today by

Firstly, this is incorrect. Lactic acid is considered a cause of anion-gap metabolic acidosis. Secondly, the piece that I cut seemed to have been an edit of a previous section talking about anion-gap and non-AG acidosis.

I have reverted to the previous version of the article. rhetoric 05:16, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

Oppose proposed merge -- ideas are distinct. --Arcadian (talk) 01:27, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Increased Oxygen?[edit]

In the section Diagnosis the following is stated Arterial blood gas sampling is essential for the diagnosis. The pH is low (under 7.35) and the bicarbonate levels are decreased (<24 mmol/l). Due to respiratory compensation (hyperventilation), carbon dioxide is decreased and conversely oxygen is increased. An ECG can be useful to anticipate cardiac complications.

As far as I recall, pO2 is a function of the inspired fraction of oxygen, not the respiratory rate.

Anyone else?? Dlegros (talk) 16:14, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

metabolic acidosis[edit]

'metabolic acidosis and it's defferential diagnosis' while the renal not working properly not having failure or not having glomeroral or tubular deffets but it's not working due too some medication like diuritics the acid facts are not normal which could change the PH of blood and urin. with that said the question is that could we chose treatmeant like hyperacidosis or metabolic acidosis? let's be a bit carefull saying thgings with out having being aproved. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:49, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Dr Colin Campbell, in the documentary "Forks Over Knives" states that dairy products cause metabolic acidosis. And this is why in his research dairy products are highly correlated with osteoporosis, because when the body becomes acidic, calcium is taken from the bones to balance the blood pH. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:51, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Not moved at this point. Jafeluv (talk) 09:58, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Metabolic acidosisMetabolic acidemia — All of the articles refer to measurement of pH in the blood. The correct and more accurate terms are proposed. The current terms refer to measurements of tissue pH which cannot be easily measured (and rarely are). As a part of this request, articles for acidosis and alkalosis will be switched with their respective redirected pages. jsfouche ☽☾ talk 05:56, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Oppose, per MEDMOS#Naming conventions. For example, in Google Books, there are 454 hits for "Metabolic alkalemia" compared to 81,100 hits for "Metabolic alkalosis". --Arcadian (talk) 12:52, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
Comment- Perhaps a better suggestion is to create a separate article on the "emias" and clean up the "osis" articles to indicate the differences, including the diagnosis of the conditions (e.g., acidosis is an inferred diagnosis based on the ABG results indicating acidemia). This is what was done with hypoxia and hypoxemia. I will work on this. jsfouche ☽☾ talk 20:28, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
