Metabolic acidosis - Definition


Definition


Metabolic acidosis is an excessive accumulation of acids in the blood (its pH drops below 7.38, the norm being between 7.38 and 7.42). It is due either to an excessive production of acids by the body, or by an insufficient elimination of these acids by the kidneys. It occurs principally in the case of an insulin-dependent diabetic imbalance, a major kidney problem, fasting, or medicinal intoxication. Metabolic acidosis causes an increase in respiratory activity (which is supposed to lower the blood's acidity). Research into the cause at the origin of this excess of acids and the treatment of this cause allows for the correction of metabolic acidosis.
