NAB consists of the difference between net acid intake (NAI) and urinary net acid excretion (NAE). NAI, defined as the daily net gain of non-carbonic, non-metabolizable acid from all extrarenal sources, consists of contributions from G-I absorption, sulfuric acid production, organic anion (OA-) excretion, skeletal… CONTINUE READING
