renal tubular acidosis
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 184.108.40.206)
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)
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.
'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 220.127.116.11 (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 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:51, 23 May 2011 (UTC)
