Kidney disease is a major cause of acid-base metabolism disorders. If the kidney cannot filter enough acid from the blood through the urine, metabolic acidosis can develop. If a person's kidney disease reaches a more advanced stage, various kinds of acid-base metabolism disorders can develop. At this stage, filtering the blood becomes very important in managing the acid-base balance of the blood.

How common is celiac disease?
Michael Roizen, MD, Internal Medicine, answeredCeliac disease is a politically unbiased autoimmune disease. Seems both Chelsea Clinton and Elisabeth Hasselbeck have it and can't stomach the same things. (Foods that contain gluten, such as wheat, rye, barley, some oats, and many prepared foods, are off their menu.)
They're not alone. Celiac disease is 40 times more common than docs used to think -- affecting as many as 1 in 133 in North America. If your parents, siblings, or kids have it, there's a 1 in 22 chance you do, too.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
How is social support linked to heart disease?
Sarah LoBisco, Integrative Medicine, answered
According to an article in Psychology Today, 25% of Americans have no meaningful social support at all, and over half of all Americans report having no close confidants or friends outside their immediate family.
According to Dr. Dean Ornish’s book, Love and Survival: The Scientific Basis for the Healing Power of Intimacy:
In 1985, Dr. Berkman at California Department of Health Services studied 7,000 men and women living in Almedia County.
- Those who lacked social and community ties were 1.9 to 3.1 times more likely to die during nine year follow-up period independent of age, gender, race, SES, smoking, alcoholic beverage consumption, overeating, physical activity and utilization of preventative health services.
- Those who lived longest had close social ties and healthful behaviors
- In additional 8 year follow-up: those who were socially isolated or who just felt isolated had higher risk of dying of cancer
Circulation, a publication of the American Heart Association, also reported a connection between low social support (SS) and heart attack reoccurrence:

- Our findings associating low SS with worse health status and more depressive symptoms are consistent with previous studies in cardiac populations.
