Answer

Neurologic abnormalities such as mental confusion progressing to stupor, when observed, are not usually secondary to the acidosis but are the cause of the acidosis itself.

In general, neurologic abnormalities are less common in persons with metabolic acidosis than in persons with respiratory acidosis.
