Metabolic Acidosis is No Joke

Metabolic acidosis is a common but often missed health issue where the body holds onto too much acid and loses its alkaline reserves, mainly a substance called bicarbonate. This condition can subtly harm your body, damaging your muscles, bones, and kidneys and causing a loss of important minerals.

Diet greatly influences this process, with meat and certain diets adding more acid, while fruits, veggies, and other foods help neutralize the acid. Medical professionals need to focus more on detecting and managing this issue, which can involve blood tests and dietary changes.

This condition can lead to various health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, bone loss, muscle weakness, gout, kidney issues, and dehydration, underscoring the importance of maintaining a good acid-alkaline balance in your body.
