Acidosis

A condition in which there is a change in the body’s acid-base balance to have more acid than normal, which often causes the pH of blood and body tissues to fall below the healthy range (7.35-7.45) . It can be caused by a decrease in the elimination of CO2 in respiratory disorders such as emphysema, by metabolic problems such as kidney disease and diabetes, or as a result of ingestion of poisons (ethylene glycol, methanol) or an overdose of certain medications (salicylates); It can also be caused by loss of HCO3, as in diarrhea.
