Sodium bicarbonate abuse: a case report.

Abstract

Sodium bicarbonate abuse is unusual, and rarely reported. A patient was extensively investigated at several hospitals for a recurrent hypokalaemic metabolic alkalosis; it transpired that she had been abusing sodium bicarbonate for 8 years and had gained hospital admission at will by taking large amounts. She also showed features of the Munchausen syndrome.
