Metabolism is controlled by macro- and micronutrients. Protein-rich diets should lead to latent acidosis at tissue level with further negative implications. Food supplements with alkaline salts are available and popular pretending to prevent these changes. Within a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial, the investigators tested the hypotheses 1) that a 4-week protein-rich diet induces a latent tissue acidosis and 2) an alkaline supplement can compensate this. Acid-base balance and important metabolic parameters were determined before and after 4 weeks of supplementation by peripheral blood samples, indirect calorimetry and muscle microdialysis before and after a protein-rich test meal.
Most adults consume acid-producing diets because their high intake of protein and/or cereal grains in relation to their intake of fruits and vegetables. This study is being done to determine whether acid-base balance can be restored by the addition of dried fruits to the diet. In this study adults with low usual fruit intake will be provided with either 100 g per day of a mix of dried fruits or no dried fruit. Participants will be followed for 1 year. Acid-base status will be assessed by measuring the acid content in 24-hour urine collections.
Fluid management being an important component of surgery becomes more challenging for an anesthesiologist in case of renal transplant. Ischemia-reperfusion injury is an inevitable consequence of kidney transplantation, leading to metabolic acidosis .Normal saline (NS; 0.9% NaCl) is administered during kidney transplantation to avoid the risk of hyperkalemia associated with potassium-containing fluids. Plasmalyte is another fluid which can be used and probably will lead to better metabolic profile in these group of patients.The primary objective of this study will be to compare the effects of using normal saline (NS), Ringer lactate and Plasmalyte as intravenous fluids on acid-base balance and electrolytes during living donor kidney transplantation. Secondary outcomes assessed will be the effect on renal function.
