Acidosis?

Has anyone been diagnosed with a chronic acidic disorder of the blood? How were you tested, and what were your symptoms? Is it possible to be tested in a clinic vs. a hospital? I'm not speaking of a minor acidosis that can be treated by diet, but a permanent disorder caused by some malfunction. I tried to get testing for this but the doctor ignored my symptoms and told me (without testing) that I had fibromyalgia (even though I don't have those symptoms, and a previous doctor said that I definitely didn't have it). I have a lot of damage to my teeth's enamel, which has caused a thinning of the teeth and pieces to break off. Can a dentist test for acidosis? I don't have bulemia or anorexia, but all the dentists I've seen have tried to suggest that I do.

  • did you get tested for hepatitis C? I know you said acidosis but were the doctor's positive on the diagnosis?

  • Phone around some naturopaths. They can test for acidosis and best advise you what to do. Most doctors, clinics and hospitals dont recognise the condition. I get a very acidic system.Agape,searchingsam

  • I have been diagnosed with type I Distal Renal Tubular AcidosisThis is a kidney disease where my kidneys have stopped regulating my pH and if untreated metabolic acidosis occurs. I take potassium citrate to balance the pH. Consult with a nephrologist and see if this is something that might apply to you. My symptoms began with kidney stones.Best of Luck.
