Metformin has been widely used as a first-line agent to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. Lactic acidosis is a rare but serious adverse effect in patients treated with metformin. Recent studies noted a correlation between metformin accumulation and lactic acidosis. Continuous renal replacement therapy for the treatment of metformin-associated lactic acidosis has been documented in some case reports; however, there is currently no specific treatment for metformin-associated lactic acidosis. A 70-year-old Japanese woman with type 2 diabetes mellitus presented to an emergency room with metformin-associated lactic acidosis. She was found to be hypotensive and laboratory examinations revealed severe lactic acidosis: pH 6.618, partial pressure of carbon dioxide in arterial blood 17.3 mmHg, bicarbonate 1.7 mmol/L, and lactate 18 mmol/L. Severe acidemia persisted despite supportive care including intravenously administered fluids, sodium bicarbonate, antibiotics, and vasopressors. Continuous renal replacement
Metformin is the most commonly used oral antihyperglycemic drug in type 2 diabetes. Metformin-associated lactic acidosis (MALA) is a rare but severe
WARNING: LACTIC ACIDOSIS. Postmarketing cases of metformin-associated lactic acidosis have resulted in death, hypothermia, hypotension, and resistant bradyarrhythmias. The onset of metformin- associated lactic acidosis is often subtle, accompanied only by nonspecific symptoms such as malaise, myalgias, respiratory distress, somnolence, and abdominal pain. Metformin-associated lactic acidosis was characterized by elevated blood lactate levels (,5 mmol/Liter), anion gap acidosis (without evidence of ketonuria or ketonemia), an increased lactate/pyruvate ratio; and metformin plasma levels generally ,5 mcg/mL (see PRECAUTIONS).. Risk factors for metformin-associated lactic acidosis include renal impairment, concomitant use of certain drugs (e.g. carbonic anhydrase inhibitors such as topiramate), age 65 years old or greater, having a radiological study with contrast, surgery and other procedures, hypoxic states (e.g., acute congestive heart failure), excessive alcohol intake, and hepatic ...
Following publication of our article in Critical Care [1], the following error was brought to our attention. The sentence that reads "The rise in carbon dioxide partial pressure also increases hemoglobin affinity for oxygen and may, therefore, decrease oxygen delivery" is incorrect. The words "increases" and "decrease" were reversed.. The correct sentence should read: "The rise in carbon dioxide partial pressure also decreases hemoglobin affinity for oxygen and may, therefore, increase oxygen delivery."

Metformin improves glycemic control in type 2 diabetes without causing weight gain or hypoglycemia and is the only oral hypoglycemic drug that has reduced cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in a randomized trial (1). However, metformin might increase the risk for lactic acidosis. For this reason, many prescribing guidelines suggest that metformin be contraindicated in patients at higher-than-average risk for lactic acidosis. Salpeter and colleagues hoped to compare the incidence of lactic acidosis in metformin users with those taking other medications or placebo, but this proved impossible because not a single case of lactic acidosis was found in any of these studies. Although many of the included studies did not specifically exclude persons with renal, hepatic, cardiac, or pulmonary disease, it is possible that not enough persons with these comorbid conditions were enrolled in the studies to allow accurate risk estimates. In Saskatchewan, where comprehensive, linkable databases of ...

Lactic acidosis occurs when the body produces too much lactic acid and cannot metabolize it quickly enough. The condition can be a medical emergency. The onset of lactic acidosis might be rapid and occur within minutes or hours, or gradual, happening over a period of days. The best way to treat lactic acidosis is to f
This study provides a unique opportunity to prospectively assess the relationship of lactic acidemia with liver dysfunction and to determine whether lactic acidemia and liver dysfunction are likely to be secondary to NRTI-induced mitochondrial toxicity. If lactic acidemia and hepatic fatty infiltration (steatosis) in this study population are secondary to NRTI-induced mitochondrial toxicity, withdrawal of NRTI medications can be expected to result in partial improvement or resolution of these findings. Furthermore, this study will examine the possible additive ill effects of NRTI-induced mitochondrial toxicity on liver function in individuals coinfected with hepatitis C.. This study is designed both as a stand-alone ACTG protocol providing an NRTI-sparing regimen and as a study coenrollable simultaneously with A5116.. Patients enrolling in A5133 as a stand-alone study: Patients on NRTI-containing regimens with elevated lactates and ALTs are enrolled into a single open-label NRTI-sparing ...

In four patients with mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and strokelike episodes (MELAS) in which mutated mitochondrial deoxyribonucleic acid was seen, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and angiopathy was demonstrated by echocardiogra
A 30-yr-old man with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome treated with zidovudine developed biopsy-proven mitochondrial myopathy. Chronic lactic acidosis (lactate, 10 +/- 1 mmol/L) persisted for more than 5 wk. Liver function tests were normal, but the concentration of lactose rose to 16.1 mmol/L when 500 mmol of ethanol was infused. The concentration of lactose rose by only 1.5 mmol/L with maximally tolerated exercise. If this mitochondrial lesion compromised flux through the electron transport system, increased turnover of ATP with exercise should have exacerbated the degree of lactic acidosis because of increased need to regenerate ATP via glycolysis. Two possible explanations will be discussed: first, there was both a rapid rate of production of lactic acid in affected muscles in conjunction and an equally rapid rate of removal by uninvolved organs. Second, there was a low net rate of production of lactic acid in involved muscles despite the exercise. ...
Several abstracts were available on the incidence and natural history of hyperlactatemia and lactic acidosis. Graeme Moyle [Abs 98] presented cross sectional data on lactic acid measurements obtained from patients in his clinic between Aug 1999 to June 2001. Of a total of 4361 lactate measurements performed on 2069 patients, 8.7% had lactates > 2.5 mmol/l while 0.8% (9 individuals) had severe hyperlactatemia defined as > 5 mmol/l. The median lactate in 1239 subjects receiving antiretroviral medications for at least 4 months was 1.4 mmol/l whereas in the population of 253 HIV-positive untreated individuals the median lactate as 1.1 mmol/l. The results of repeat measurements in individuals with high lactates indicated that a single elevated lactate had limited predictive value suggesting that many elevations of lactates were transient. In contrast, in those with normal lactate levels, there was a high predictive value for subsequent normal levels. Events were more common with ddI based regimens, ...
This eMedTV resource looks at a life-threatening potential side effect of metformin: lactic acidosis. This page describes some of the symptoms of lactic acidosis and lists some of the factors that can increase your risk of developing this condition.
Severe anemia (SA, hemoglobin <6 g/dl) is a leading cause of pediatric hospital admission in Africa, with significant in-hospital mortality. The underlying etiology is often infectious, but specific pathogens are rarely identified. Guidelines developed to encourage rational blood use recommend a standard volume of whole blood (20 ml/kg) for transfusion, but this is commonly associated with a frequent need for repeat transfusion and poor outcome. Evidence is lacking on what hemoglobin threshold criteria for intervention and volume are associated with the optimal survival outcomes. We evaluated the safety and efficacy of a higher volume of whole blood (30 ml/kg; Tx30: n = 78) against the standard volume (20 ml/kg; Tx20: n = 82) in Ugandan children (median age 36 months (interquartile range (IQR) 13 to 53)) for 24-hour anemia correction (hemoglobin >6 g/dl: primary outcome) and 28-day survival. Median admission hemoglobin was 4.2 g/dl (IQR 3.1 to 4.9). Initial volume received followed the randomization

Statistics about Mitochondrial myopathy - lactic acidosis as a medical condition including prevalence, incidence, death rates, and social and hospital statistics.
We report three families presenting with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and multiple defects of mitochondrial respiratory chain (MRC) activities. By direct sequencing of the candidate gene MTO1, encoding the mitochondrial-tRNA modifier 1, or whole exome sequencing analysis, we identified novel missense mutations. All MTO1 mutations were predicted to be deleterious on MTO1 function. Their pathogenic role was experimentally validated in a recombinant yeast model, by assessing oxidative growth, respiratory activity, mitochondrial protein synthesis, and complex IV activity. In one case, we also demonstrated that expression of wt MTO1 could rescue the respiratory defect in mutant fibroblasts. The severity of the yeast respiratory phenotypes partly correlated with the different clinical presentations observed in MTO1 mutant patients, although the clinical outcome was highly variable in patients with the same mutation and seemed also to depend on timely start of pharmacological ...

Under certain conditions, too much metformin can cause lactic acidosis. The symptoms of lactic acidosis are severe and quick to appear, and usually occur when other health problems not related to the medicine are present and are very severe, such as a heart attack or kidney failure. Symptoms of lactic acidosis include abdominal or stomach discomfort, decreased appetite; diarrhea; fast or shallow breathing; a general feeling of discomfort; severe muscle pain or cramping; and unusual sleepiness, tiredness, or weakness. If symptoms of lactic acidosis occur, you should get immediate emergency medical help. Metformin can cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). However, this can also occur if you delay or miss a meal or snack, drink alcohol, exercise more than usual, cannot eat because of nausea or vomiting, take certain medicines, or take metformin with another type of diabetes medicine. The symptoms of low blood sugar must be treated before they lead to unconsciousness (passing out). Different people ...
In our study, 5 of 50,048 type 2 diabetic patients (1 per 10,000 subjects) developed lactic acidosis while exposed to metformin, of whom only 1 patient used metformin alone, whereas 4 patients used metformin and another oral antidiabetes agent concomitantly. In only one patient on metformin, no acute deterioration of a medical condition known to be a risk factor for lactic acidosis could be identified. However, in addition to hypertensive heart disease, this patient suffered from liver cirrhosis, which is associated with impaired clearance of lactic acid and thereby predisposes to lactic acidosis. One case subject was exposed to a sulfonylurea only. The case group was too small for formal analysis, but the crude incidence rates were 3.3 and 4.8 per 100,000 person-years for current users of metformin or of sulfonylureas, respectively. Thus, there was no greater risk of lactic acidosis among metformin users compared with users of other oral antidiabetes drugs (3,17).. The term ...

Today we had Dr. Darren Schmidt on the show to talk about a subject that could be the lynch pin for all chronic degenerative diseases. In fact according to his studies over 150 disease processes are tied to lactic acidosis.. What is lactic acidosis you say? Well Dr. Darren Schmidt explained that lactic acidosis is commonly known as simply "dirty blood". How would your blood being dirty cause disease? What does that even mean diry blood? Does that mean your blood has actual dirt in it? No.. It means that your blood could be filled with parasites, plastics (or other endocrine disruptors), viruses, fungi, bacteria or other pathogens that cause the blood to become too think and unable to transfer oxygen and light correctly.. When your blood has all these toxins and chemicals in it, its not able to do its job. So what can you do to clean up your blood and reverse lactic acidosis in your body?. Well luckily Dr. Darren Schmidt talked specifically about B-vitamins and how they can help clean the ...
You should not use this medication if you are allergic to metformin, or if you are in a state of diabetic ketoacidosis (call your doctor for treatment with insulin). If you need to have any type of x-ray or CT scan using a dye that is injected into your veins, you will need to temporarily stop taking metformin. Some people develop lactic acidosis while taking metformin. Early symptoms may get worse over time and this condition can be fatal. Get emergency medical help if you have even mild symptoms such as: muscle pain or weakness, numb or cold feeling in your arms and legs, trouble breathing, stomach pain, nausea with vomiting, slow or uneven heart rate, dizziness, or feeling very weak or tired. Some people develop a life-threatening condition called lactic acidosis while taking metformin. You may be more likely to develop lactic acidosis if you have liver or kidney disease, congestive heart failure, a severe infection, if you are dehydrated, or if you drink large amounts of alcohol. Talk with ...

Common uses. This medicine is a biguanide-type medicine used along with a diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes. This medicine works by helping restore your bodys proper response to the insulin you naturally produce, and by decreasing the amount of sugar that your liver makes and that your stomach/intestines absorb. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent heart disease, strokes, kidney disease, blindness, circulation problems, and sexual function problems. This medicine may be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.. Before using. WARNING: Metformin may rarely cause a condition called lactic acidosis, which is sometimes fatal. Seek immediate medical attention if you develop any symptoms of lactic acidosis including unusual tiredness, severe drowsiness, cold skin, muscle pain, breathing trouble or rapid breathing, or unusually slow or irregular heartbeat. Lactic acidosis is more likely to occur in patients who have heart ...
Serial clinical and metabolic changes were monitored in 115 Gambian children (1.5-12 years old) with severe malaria. Fifty-three children (46%) had cerebral malaria (coma score | or = 2) and 21 (18%) died. Admission geometric mean venous blood lactate concentrations were almost twice as high in fatal cases as in survivors (7.1 mmol/L vs. 3.6 mmol/L; P | 0.001) and were correlated with levels of tumour necrosis factor (r = 0.42, n = 79; P | 0.0001) and interleukin 1-alpha (r = 0.6, n = 34; P | 0.0001). Admission blood venous glucose concentrations were lower in fatal cases than survivors (3.2 mmol/L, vs. 5.8 mmol/L; P | 0.0001). Treatment with quinine was associated with significantly more episodes of post-admission hypoglycaemia when compared with artemether or chloroquine. After treatment, lactate concentrations fell rapidly in survivors but fell only slightly, or rose, in fatal cases. Plasma cytokine levels fluctuated widely after admission. Sustained hyperlactataemia (raised lactate concentrations, 4

Endotoxemia causes hypotension characterized by vasodilation and resistance to vasopressor agents. The molecular mechanisms responsible for these changes are unclear. The ATP-regulated K+ (K+ATP) channel has recently been found to be an important modulator of vascular smooth muscle tone which may transduce local metabolic changes into alterations of vascular flow. We report here that in endotoxic hypotension, the sulfonylurea glyburide, a specific inhibitor for the K+ATP channel, caused vasoconstriction and restoration of blood pressure. Glyburide also induced vasoconstriction and restoration of blood pressure in the vasodilatory hypotension caused by hypoxic lactic acidosis, while it was ineffective in the hypotension induced by sodium nitroprusside. Thus, vasodilation and hypotension in septic shock are, at least in part, due to activation of the K+ATP channel in vascular smooth muscle, and anaerobic metabolism with acidosis is a sufficient stimulus for channel activation. Because anaerobic ...
