    In trying to discover why my daughter felt much better on antibiotics to treat H Pylori I came across this paper- many of the symptoms are similar, and response to metronidazole, which was used as part of the treatment protocol seems to be indicative of potential D Lactic acidosis
    link to paper

    Deficiency in ACTH levels have also been suggested as a mechanism.

    Has anyone had experience of this?

    There are quite a lot of threads on this on PR. I suspect that I have acidosis, and it may be lactic acidosis, and possibly d-lactic acidosis. I take sodium bicarbonate to try to correct it and avoid losing too much blood sodium.

    I have previously gone extremely low in sodium and ended up in hospital.
