~OOO Simon thats awesome! I have that list infront of me and was trying to think of how to remember it
I assume other toxins can cause it too ?

For metabolic alkalosis I understand that its either non Chloride responsive or Chloride responsive to include
Gastric V+, diuretic therapy, refeeding syndrome and administration of Alkali (I assume Bicarb)

Is it correct that non-responsive means losing Cl- and responsive is gaining Cl-?

The last list I have is penicillin overdose and hyperaldosteronianism
