Hi XXXXXX,Welcome to Healthcare Magic.Alkalosis is a condition where the acid base balance of body is tilting to alkaline side.It can be due to respiratory or renal to both disorders.In health if the kidneys are working normally it would handle any amount of acid/alkaline threats.So check your renal function and ABG to see how the things are going.I hope the advise would be helpful for you.
