Raising dialysate [HCO3−] to 40 mmol/L normalizes predialysis serum [HCO3−] in the majority of patients.

3 Clinical Consequences Patients with mild or moderate metabolic alkalosis ([HCO3−] < 40 mmol/L) often have few symptoms, unless there is marked associated hypokalemia. Patients with severe metabolic alkalosis ([HCO3−] > 40 mmol/L) can develop a number of nonspecific manifestations in the form of weakness, lethargy, headache, constipation, muscle cramps, tetany, delirium, seizures, and even stupor.
