Sodium bicarbonate is indicated for the treatment of indigestion, metabolic acidosis, drug toxicity and severe diarrhea. As a systemic alkalizer, sodium bicarbonate increases the plasma bicarbonate, buffers excess hydrogen ion concentration, and raises blood pH, thereby reversing the clinical manifestations of acidosis. As a urinary alkalizer, sodium bicarbonate increases the excretion of free bicarbonate ions in the urine, thus effectively raising the urinary pH. By maintaining an alkaline urine, the actual dissolution of uric acid stones may be accomplished. As an antacid, sodium bicarbonate reacts chemically to neutralize or buffer existing quantities of stomach acid but has no direct effect on its output. This action results in increased pH value of stomach contents, thus providing relief of hyperacidity symptoms.
