Serum d-lactate levels of greater than 3 mmol/L confirm the diagnosis. Treatment with a low-carbohydrate diet and antibiotics (neomycin, vancomycin, or metronidazole) is often effective [12–15]. Ketoacidosis Diabetic Ketoacidosis Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is due to increased fatty acid metabolism and accumulation of ketoacids (acetoacetate and β-hydroxybutyrate) as a result of insulin deficiency or resistance and elevated glucagon levels. DKA is usually seen in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus upon cessation of insulin therapy or during an illness, such as an infection, gastroenteritis, pancreatitis, or myocardial infarction, which increases insulin requirements acutely.

3 Etiologic Causes of Metabolic Acidosis I: The High Anion Gap Acidoses 21 d-Lactic Acidosis The typical manifestations of d-lactate acidosis are episodic encephalopathy and high AG acidosis in association with short bowel syndrome. d-Lactic acidosis has been described in patients with bowel obstruction, jejunal bypass, short bowel, or ischemic bowel disease. Ileus or stasis is associated with overgrowth of flora in the gastrointestinal tract, which is exacerbated by a high-carbohydrate diet [2].
