Metabolic acidosis is a medical emergency. Although acute severe diarrhea can cause this electrolyte imbalance - it usually occurs in infants and the very young. It is frequent in diabetic ketoacidosis - which can be precipitated by diarrhea in the diabetic patient.

Chronic diarrhea is annoying and certainly the underlying cause must be diagnosed but it would be very uncommon for it to cause metabolic acidosis. The body has time to re-adjust the electrolyte balance between "bouts" of diarrhea that are ongoing and not a result of overdose of meds (scuh as asprin), or inborn error of metabolism, food poisoning or viral gastroenteritis.

As much as mainstream medicine does nto believe in acid/alkaline imbalances, I am a firm believer that celiac can cause you to be out of balance...this is based on my own personal experience and observations.

I drink water with lemon all day and feel that it really helps me with energy and mood. Lemon is acidic of course, but somehow is tuned alkaline within the digestive tract. Many people swear by eating a grapefruit first thing in the morning 15 minutes before eating anything else. They say does wonder for digestion.
