I read on one of the papers you gave me that kidneys and bicarbonate is like water and a bucket, viz., it all is retained until maximum capacity, then all is let go. I'm wondering if low bicarbonate and low chloride is related to the glycolytic status.
what is the reading for his serum lactate? 2.5 mmol/L is typically said to be good. But there may be other factors to consider.
