The trouble is that your body's inbuilt regulatory systems (lungs and kidneys) keep your blood pH very tightly controlled, and it isn't possible to change your body's pH with diet.
Results from this study demonstrate that capture, transport, and restraint for noninvasive diagnostic tests resulted in a relative leukopenia, lymphopenia, monocytopenia, eosinopenia, increased H : L ratio, and unchanged venous blood pH, despite a mild respiratory acidosis and compensatory metabolic alkalosis.

When the baseline and 30th-min values of arterial blood pH were compared, no statistically significant difference was observed between the study groups (Kruskal-Wallis test, p>0.05).
Treatment impacts upon host animals were evaluated by monitoring the following hematobiochemical parameters: Blood pH, Ruminal fluid pH, Serum Amyloid A and Haptoglobin, hemoglobin (Hgb), WBC, RBC counts and PLT.
Any change in DCAD induces certain changes in blood chemistry, for example, if DCAD decreases it causes an increase in blood [H.sup.+] and a decrease in blood HC[O.sub.3], blood pH and urine pH (Block, 1994).
Specifically, compared with the pigs fed control diet, the pigs fed HiVE diet had a similar blood pC[O.sub.2], bicarbonate and pH in TN condition but a greater level of pC[O.sub.2], a greater level of bicarbonate and a lower blood pH in HS condition.
Mean values for blood pH, bicarbonate level, arterial oxygen pressure, and hemoglobin level were significantly lower in the nonsurvivor group (p<0.0001, p<0.0001, p=0.006, and p<0.001, resp.).
The final factor used to reflect cell metabolism or gas exchange was blood pH level, which was recorded as acidosis (pH < 7.35) or nonacidosis (pH > 7.35).

Laboratory investigations (Table 1) revealed a serum potassium level of 2.1meq/L (3.5-5.5), a serum chloride level of 116.6 meq/l, an anion gap of 9 meq/L (8-12), and a blood pH of 7.3.
