Experimental: Sodium Bicarbonate
Patients will receive sodium bicarbonate for 4 weeks, based on pre-calculated weight based doses. Patients are selected if they have metabolic acidosis at baseline.
< 24 kg : 1/4 teaspoon bid. 24 - 42 kg : 1/2 teaspoon bid. > 42kg : 3/4 teaspoon bid.
Dietary Supplement: Sodium bicarbonate
Sodium bicarbonate. See arms.
No Intervention: Control
Patients will not receive treatment if they do not have metabolic acidosis at baseline.
