In this condition the tendons would become more susceptible to rupture during physical activity owing to the increased oxygen demanded by the tissue . Inflammatory changes and elastosis can be observed at the site of rupture in patients, respectively, with SLE and chronic acidosis .
HEMORRHAGIC DIATHESES, poor wound healing, bone alterations, certain characteristic skin changes, and other poorly understood tissue responses occur in chronic acidotic states. 1 Skin changes were studied in 1958 by Olmstead and Lunseth 2 who observed that the skin of chronically acidotic patients was dry, scaly, and atrophic with marked loss of hair. . Histologically, they found elastosis (an

Influence of chronic acidosis on the connective tissue. An overload of acid also has a negative effect on the elasticity of the connective tissue (sinews, ligaments, muscles, etc.) This can be of special importance with rheumatic joint ailments.
A tissue metabolic acidosis, i.e., a reduction of pH of connective tissue, is an alteration common both to all types of hiatal hernia and to acid reflux.This alteration causes the destruction of collagen fibers and elastin, and contributes to the loss of the holding capacity of the diaphragm and its crura.
Chronic Metabolic Acidosis Chronic metabolic acidosis does not seem to have a significant effect on cardiovascular function, although mortality is increased in patients with CKD when serum HCO 3-concentration is <22 mmol/l. Chronic metabolic acidosis exerts its most prominent effects on the musculoskeletal system.
Connective tissue diseases (CTDs) are a heterogeneous group of disorders that share certain clinical presentations and a disturbed immunoregulation, leading to autoantibody production. Subclinical or overt renal manifestations are frequently observed and complicate the clinical course of CTDs.

Lactic acidosis occurs when there’s too much lactic acid in your body. Causes can include chronic alcohol use, heart failure , cancer , seizures , liver failure , prolonged lack of oxygen , and low blood sugar .
Lactic acidosis is the most common cause of metabolic acidosis in hospitalized patients. Lactate accumulation results from a combination of excess formation and decreased metabolism of lactate. Lactate accumulation results from a combination of excess formation and …
