Lactic acidosis is a medical condition characterized by the buildup of lactate ( especially L-lactate) in the body, which results in an excessively low pH in the.

Diabetes Care, 15pp. Drug Saf ; Diabetes Obes Metab, 2pp. Lactic acidosis is an uncommon side effect acirosis metformin use, which is more likely to arise in patients with certain predisposing factors.

Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology. Glycolysis coupled with lactate production is neutral in the sense that it does not produce excess hydrogen cations; however, pyruvate production does produce them. Frecuency of acidosiw metformin prescriptions. Ren Fail ; The net result is ATPthe energy carrier used by the cell for metabolic activities and to perform work, such as muscle contraction.

Hypoxia certainly causes both a buildup of lactate and acidification, and lactate is therefore a good “marker” of hypoxia, but scidosis itself is not the cause of low pH. Lactic acidosis in patients with diabetes treated with metformin.

The excess hydrogen cations produced during lactic acidosis are widely believed to actually derive from production of lactic acid. Subscribe to our Newsletter. Lactic acidosis is a serious complication of metformin therapy and is more frequent in patients with kidney failure and other intercurrent complaints. Acute kidney failure and severe lactic acidosis caused by metformin successfully treated with hemodialysis.

Lactic acidosis

SRJ is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. Therefore, hydrogen cation concentration rises and causes acidosis.

Lactic acidosis sometimes occurs without hypoxia, for example, in rare inborn errors of metabolism where mitochondria do not function at full capacity. Circulation,pp.

Then, mitochondria oxidize the pyruvate into water and carbon dioxide by means of the Krebs cycle and oxidative phosphorylation. Lactate serves as an energy source for other tissues. New Explanations for Old Observations. Nephrol Dial Transplant ; The diagnosis is made on biochemical analysis of blood often initially on arterial blood gas samplesand once confirmed, generally prompts an investigation to establish the underlying cause to scidosis the acidosis.


The prognosis of lactic acidosis depends largely on the underlying cause; in some situations such aciodsis severe infectionsit indicates an increased risk of death.
