Signs and symptoms of metabolic acidosis can vary from patient to patient. A couple examples of what you might see would be;
- lack of appetite
- increased heart rate
Because metabolic acidosis comes from the bodies inability to eliminate enough acid. Patients that are at high risk for metabolic acidosis might include someone with uncontrolled diabetes. If your body lacks the correct amount of insulin, ketones will build up in your body and can make your body more acidic- hence leading to metabolic acidosis.
