If dietary DCAD (dietary cation anion difference see Table 2 for definition) is reduced to -100 to -150 mEq/kg DM, urine pH drops from the usual 8 to 8.5 to approximately 6 to 7 (see review by Husband 2005). Two recent sets of analysis have identified appetite problems with using anionic salts to… CONTINUE READING
