Bicarbonate: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:48 by admin
Doctors commonly prescribe bicarbonate to child diabetics suffering from ketoacidosis, a potentially deadly condition brought on by a lack of insulin. Recently, researchers discovered that administering bicarbonate to children with ketoacidosis may cause a deadly reaction called cerebral edema (swelling of the brain). The researchers are recommending that doctors refrain from using bicarbonate to treat ketoacidosis.

See a doctor if your child has experienced serious side effects associated with bicarbonate. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
