Kidney MUDPILES and Normal Anion Gap Acidosis

We all know Mudpiles which is a mnemonic for increased anion gap acidosis and it specifically stands for
Methanol, Uremia, DKA, Phenformin/Paraldyhide, Iron/INH/Inborn error of metabolism, Lactic acidosis, Salicylates.

Now how about the normal anion gap acidosis! In fact in USMLE they are more likely to test you about normal anion gap acidosis than the increased anion gap because they know that you memorized the Mud Piles

So here' a mnemonic for the normal anion gap acidosis

HUG SAD CRASH

Hyperchloremia
Urterosigmoidoscopy
Glue sniffing

Saline administration
Addison's
Diarrhea

Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors
Renal tubular acidosis
Ammonium chloride
Spironolactone
Hyperparathyroidism

Default La mud pile

The new mnemonic is now LA MUD PILE, it replaced salicylates with Aspirin as it's easier remembered.
