    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Metabolic acidosis: It is an electrolyte disorder characterised by an acid-base imbalance in the body. The main causes of metabolic acidosis are loss of bicarbonate, increased acid production, and lowered ability of the kidney to excrete excess acids.

    Drug intoxication: Drug intoxication is a condition that follows the administration of a psychoactive substance and results in disturbances in the level of consciousness, perception, cognition, behaviour, or other psychophysiological responses and functions.

    Diarrhoea: It occurs when there is a frequent need to empty the bowels, characterised by loose and watery stools. The causes of diarrhoea include food intolerance, food allergy, adverse reaction to a medicine, viral infection, bacterial infection, intestinal disease, parasitic infection, and stomach or gallbladder surgery. The symptoms of diarrhoea include nausea, abdominal pain, cramps, dehydration and bloating, frequent urge to empty the bowels, and a large volume of stools or watery stools.
