Acidosis Treatment Options
One of the most common problems facing athletes is Acidosis. What is Acidosis? Acidosis is condition resulting from the accumulation of acid or the depletion of alkaline reserves in the body. There are different types of acidosis which are classified as respiratory acidosis or metabolic acidosis. Have no fear! There are Acidosis treatment options out there.
Symptoms of acidosis are non-specific and can be very hard to diagnose. A patient must present indication for arterial blood gas sampling before diagnosis. Symptoms of acidosis include heart palpitations, chest pain, headache, anxiety, decreased visual acuity, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain, loss or increased appetite, muscle fatigue, etc.
Treatment options for Acidosis will depend on the cause of the condition though the most common of acidosis is metabolic. Many companies sell supplements that will control the acids in your body. These supplements are mineral based crystalline compositions with localized, systematic alkalizing effects on the body. These supplements can be very beneficial.
Not all supplements are the same and you should always consult with your physician before taking any supplements. You should also do research on supplements before you taking them. Treatment options are aimed at the underlying condition. Though supplements can be an option for treatment and prevention, Acidosis should not be self diagnosed.
Some conditions of acidosis can actually be life threatening and should be treated immediately. For instance, diabetic acidosis is a condition that occurs in people with type-1 diabetes. This type of acidosis requires hospitalization. A patient with this condition will be given urgent care treatment, fluids and intravenous insulin.
Metabolic Acidosis treatment, again targets the underlying cause though agents that decrease acidity may be given. Most commonly, metabolic acidosis is treated by Alkali therapy to raise the plasma PH to greater than 7.20. Oral Alkali treatment is the preferred therapy for people with chronic metabolic acidosis. Bicarbonate is therapy is a temporary measure used to treat severe acidosis.
Respiratory acidosis is a condition in which the lungs are not able to remove all of the carbon dioxide from the body. Again, treatment for this type of acidosis depends on its cause. Treatments for respiratory acidosis target the lungs to exhale carbon dioxide more efficiently. Bronchodilators are the most effective in curing this type of acidosis condition. Other treatments include mechanical ventilators and intravenous fluids.
There are many types of Acidosis, causes, treatments, preventions and cures. Never self diagnose any type of Acidosis! If you have any symptoms, you should seek medical attention. No matter the severity, there is a treatment all types of acidosis but the first step should always be addressing any concerns with your physician.
