LACTIC ACIDOSIS : WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW?
The acid buildup causes an imbalance in the pH level of the body, which must always be alkaline, not acidic. Lactic acid buildup occurs when there is not enough oxygen in the muscles to break down glucose and glycogen. This is called anaerobic metabolism. There are two types of lactic acid: L-lactic and D-lactic. Most forms of lactic acidosis are caused by too much L-lactate. There are two types of lactic acidosis including: ● Type A lactic acidosis is caused by tissue hypoperfusion (lack of nutrition) from heart failure, sepsis, or cardiac pulmonary arrest. ● Type B lactic acidosis is caused by impaired cellular level function and local area tissue hypoperfusion. Lactic acidosis has many causes and is often treatable. But if left untreated, it may be life-threatening.
