আমাদের পরিচয়সহায় লিমিটেড একটি স্বাস্থ্য-প্রযুক্তি কোম্পানি। সকলের কাছে সহজ বাংলায় নির্ভুল স্বাস্থ্য তথ্য পৌঁছে দিতে আমরা কাজ করছি।

সহায় এর সহ–প্রতিষ্ঠাতা,ডা তাসনিম জারা, করোনাকালে ভিডিও বার্তার মাধ্যমে মানুষের কাছে নির্ভরযোগ্য তথ্য পৌঁছে দিতে কাজ করছেন। তার তৈরিকৃত ভিডিও বার্তা সাড়ে তিন কোটি বারের বেশি দেখা হয়েছে। সহায় এর উদ্দেশ্য হচ্ছে এই কাজটি আরও বড় পরিসরে, আরও সুন্দরভাবে পরিচালনা করা।

প্রতি সপ্তাহে আমরা বিভিন্ন রোগ নিয়ে নতুন নতুন লেখা, ভিডিও ও স্টোরি প্রকাশ করবো তিনটি প্রশ্নের উত্তর তুলে ধরে:

১। কোন লক্ষণ দেখা দিলে রোগীকে দ্রুত ডাক্তারের শরণাপন্ন হতে হবে।

২। কোন লক্ষণ দেখা দিলে রোগী বাসায় নিজের যত্ন নিতে পারবে।

৩। রোগী যদি বাসায় থাকে তবে কিভাবে নিজের যত্ন নিবে।

এছাড়াও কিভাবে স্বাস্থ্যকর জীবনযাপন করা যায় সে বিষয়ে আমাদের কনটেন্ট থাকবে

Normal metabolism of the body produce approximately 15000 mmol of carbon dioxide and 50 to 100 mmol of nonvolatile or fixed acid each day. Acid base balance is maintained by normal elimination of carbon dioxide by lungs and normal excretion of non volatile acid by kidneys. Metabolic acidosis occurs when either an increase in production non volatile acid or increase loss of bicarbonate from the body overwhelms the mechanism of homeostasis or when renal acidification mechanism are compromised. Metabolic acidosis (Chronic) is commonly associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD).

The number of functioning nephrons declined in CKD, acid excretion is initially maintained by an increase in ammonium excretion. However total ammonium excretion begin to fall when glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is below 40ml/min. CKD leads to retention of hydrogen ion which is buffered by bicarbonate in the extra cellular fluid, tissue buffer and bone. With worsening of renal function progressive metabolic acidosis and academia develop. Serum bicarbonate concentration is <22meq/L is about 25% patient of non dialysis dependent CKD stage 5. Serum bicarbonate trends to stabilize 12 to 18 meq/L in CKD when GFR is < 10ml/min. Anion gap remains normal until late stage CKD when it begins to widen due to retaining anion such as phosphate and sulfate.

The consequences in CKD are bone resorption and osteopenia, increase muscle protein catabolism, aggravation of secondary hyperparathyroidism, reduced respiratory reserve, exhaustion body buffer system, increase severity of acute intercurrent illness, reduce Na-K-ATPase activity in RBC, myocardial cells resulting impair myocardial contractility, producing heart failure, systemic inflammation and hypotension. Endocrine disorder in metabolic acidosis in CKD are resistance to growth hormone and insulin and hypertriglyceridemia.

African American Study of Kidney disease (AASK) trial and CRIC observational study in patients of non dialysis depended CKD have found that lower serum bicarbonate concentration, higher net endogenous acid production, higher dietary acid load and inability to excrete acid are all associated with a higher risk of progressive renal function loss. Potential mechanism for progression of CKD is metabolic acidosis promotes increase of ammonium excreted per nephron is associated with activation of complement system, renin angiotensin system with increase production of endothelin which may produce tubulointerstitial inflammation and chronic damage to kidneys. Treatment of metabolic acidosis in CKD are sodium bicarbonate or sodium citrate.

In mild acedemia (arterial ph>7.2 ) in asymptomatic adult does not require bicarbonate therapy. KDIGO guideline advocate alkali therapy in patient with CKD in a dose 0.5 to 1mg per/kg/day to maintain target range 23 to 28 meq/L. Sodium citrate should be avoided in patient also taking aluminum containing antacid. Sodium bicarbonate therapy may cause volume expansion and hypertension in CKD patients and raising ph can precipitate tetany in patient with hypocalcaemia.

Bicarbonate supplement appears to slow the progression of CKD, prevent or delay the progression of both osteopenia and hyperparathyroid bone disease and improved nutritional status and lean body mass. In conclusion several but not all studies of patients with chronic metabolic acidosis in CKD have demonstrated bicarbonate therapy improves or decrease the progression of bone disease, normalizes growth, reduce muscle degradation, improves of albumin synthesis and retards progression of CKD. At present recommendation to maintain bicarbonate level 22-23mmol/L in CKD patients.
