Metabolic acidosis can result in a variety of nonspecific changes in several organ systems, including, but not limited to, neurologic, cardiovascular, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, and musculoskeletal dysfunction. Symptoms are often specific to and a result of the underlying etiology of the metabolic acidosis.
