    In order to study the effect of various species of bicarbonates on the pH and on the content of DTPA-extractable iron, an experiment was organized, showing the effect of 7 progressive concentrations (from 0 to 3%) of ammonium, sodium and potassium bicarbonates. The results show the progressive...

    Our purpose is to integrate new insights in potassium (K+) physiology to understand K+ homeostasis and illustrate some of their clinical implications. Since control mechanisms that are essential for survival were likely developed in Paleolithic times, we think the physiology of K+ homeostasis...
