  • methanol
  • Dehydration, methanol or aspirin poisoning, kidney failure and a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet can also increase the risk of metabolic acidosis. (reference.com)
  • K - Ketoacidosis A - aspirin R - Renal failure M - Methanol E - Ethylene glycol L - Lactic acidosis Another frequently used mnemonic is KULT. (wikipedia.org)
  • K - Ketoacidosis (DKA, AKA) U - Uremia L - Lactic acidosis T - Toxins (Ethylene glycol, methanol, as well as drugs, such as aspirin, Metformin) The preferred mnemonic of D. Robert Dufour, the chief of the Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Service, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, is DUMPSALE, which omits the I of MUDPILES as the proposed values of *I* are exceedingly rare in clinical practice. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] D - Diabetic ketoacidosis U - Uremia M - Methanol P - Paraldehyde S - Salicylates A - Alcoholic ketoacidosis L - Lactic acidosis E - Ethylene Glycol The mnemonic for the [rare, in comparison] toxins is ACE GIFTs: Aspirin, Cyanide, Ethanolic ketosis, Glycols [ ethylene and propylene ], Isoniazid, Ferrous iron, Toluene. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hypokalemic
  • Patients with type 2 RTA are also typically hypokalemic due to a combination of secondary hyperaldosteronism, and potassium urinary losses - though serum potassium levels may be falsely elevated because of acidosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • prevention
  • Significant mortality (reported as high as 50% 3 ) is associated with biguanide-induced lactic acidosis and attention should be focused on prevention through awareness of the risk factors. (medsafe.govt.nz)
  • prone
  • Diabetics may be prone to ketosis or acidosis when insulin levels drop below healthy levels or when ketones build up in the body due to uncontrolled insulin levels. (livestrong.com)
  • Also, muscle types that have few mitochondria and preferentially use glycolysis for ATP production (fast-twitch or type II fibers) are naturally prone to lactic acidosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • decreases
  • Respiratory acidosis is a medical emergency in which decreased ventilation (hypoventilation) increases the concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood and decreases the blood's pH (a condition generally called acidosis). (wikipedia.org)
  • Acidosis decreases binding of calcium to albumin and tends to increase serum ionized calcium levels. (wikipedia.org)
