The causes are classified on the basis of anion gap ( normal 3-11 mEq/l) 1. High Anion gap (>12 mEq/l) Metabolic acidosis: when body produce excessive acid (H+ ions). It includes lactic acidosis, Diabetic ketoacidosis, Methanol poisoning, iron and isoniazid poisoning, Uremic phase of renal failure, Ethynole poisoning and salicylate overdose. 2. Normal Anion gap Metabolic acidosis: it includes chronic diarrhea, Renal tubular acidosis type 2, Nutritional therapy, Addison's disease, Acetazolamide, Normal saline, spirolactone.
