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.
