Sodium Bicarb and muscle fx in CKD- new study
I dont know how many of you saw this new paper from Bill Mitch's group in Texas. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31699517 It was a multisite RCT examining effects of bicarb supplementation on physical function.   Primary outcome was change in physical function measured by the Sit-to-stand test. Results were negative (no effect of bicarb on physical function).   Any thoughts on this study?   Will this effect the GREX initiative to investigate this question?   Anxious to get a forum discussion going.  lets do this! Ken

Hi Ken. As this is a very recent topic to be associated with, it's worth giving a try. Perhaps another physical function test would better explain?! Handgrip strength?

I only have access to the abstract. My observation was that there was no exercise/activity component and physical assessment was very limited could/would the results be different if exercise/activity had been included? I've seen anicdotel stories (by patiehts on kidney pages) that bicarbonae works .. no context is included and I would be asking for more information in the futurem
