Bicarb vs. Bone Mineral Density
Lower serum bicarbonate levels are associated with lower bone mineral density (BMD) in US adults.
According to an American Journal of Kidney Diseases' article, over 9,700 adults 20 years or older were studied.This study revealed that chronic metabolic acidosis leads to bone mineral loss and results in lower (BMD), which is a major risk factor for osteoporosis and related fractures. At highest risk for low BMD were post menopausal women. Serum bicarbonate levels may be incorporated in determining an increase risk for low BMD. (Am J Kidney Dis. 2015 Feb;65(2):240-8)
