Metabolic alkalosis is seen in (AIIMS May 2014)
|B||Increased excretion of base|
|C||Decreased secretion of H+ ion|
|D||Deficiency of mineralocorticoids|
Mineralocorticoid excess leads to excess of sodium reabsorption at DCT. This lead to excess loss of H+ and K+ at DCT. Excess loss of H+ leads to metabolic alkalosis and excess loss of K+ leads to hypokalemia.
