    Large-scale clinical studies have shown that the biguanide drag metformin, widely used for type 2 diabetes, to be very safe. By contrast, another biguanide, phenformin, has been withdrawn from major markets because of a high incidence of serious adverse effects. The difference in mode of action...

The quantitative dimensions of these two mechanisms commonly differ by 1 order of magnitude. Overproduction of lactic acid, also termed type A lactic acidosis, occurs when the body...

    The renal response to chronic mineral acid feeding: A re-examination of the role of systemic pH. It has been widely held that systemic acidemia represents the proximate event signaling the kidney to elicit its acidification response to chronic metabolic acidosis. However, a previous study from...

    Excessive animal protein consumption is associated with a greater risk of occurrence of renal calcium stone, presumably because of the attendant endogenous acid production. Indeed, chronic acid load enhances urinary calcium excretion possibly through an increased bone calcium release. Because...
