ABSTRACT: The sweat of single sweat glands of healthy individuals and cystic fibrosis patients was analyzed for differences in bicarbonate, lactate, and pH. These values were monitored as a function of sweat rate simultaneously with 1) the electrical potential difference at the duct orifice (with respect to the interstitial fluid) and 2) the concentrations of sodium, potassium, and chloride in surface sweat. Sweat in both groups contained about equal concentrations of lactate and bicarbonate at… CONTINUE READING
