acidemia

 [as″ĭ-de´me-ah]
abnormal acidity of the blood.

ac·i·de·mi·a

(as'i-dē'mē-ă),
An increase in the H-ion concentration of the blood or a fall below normal in pH. Individual types of acidemia are listed by specific name, for example, isovalericacidemia, aminoacidemia.
[acid + G. haima, blood]

acidemia

/ac·i·de·mia/ (as″ĭ-de´me-ah) increased acidity of the blood. For those characterized by increased concentration of a specific acid, see at the acid.
organic acidemia  increased concentration of one or more organic acids in the blood.

acidemia

(ăs′ĭ-dē′mē-ə)
n.
Abnormal acidity of the blood.

acidemia

[as′idē′mē·ə]
decreased pH status of the blood or abnormal acidity in the blood. Specific types are denoted by prefixes: lactacidemia, lipacidemia. Also spelled acidaemia.

acidaemia

(1) Acidosis. 
(2) A suffix attached to a pathological increase in certain small molecules—e.g., isovaleric-acidemia.

ac·i·de·mi·a

(as-i-dē'mē-ă)
An increase in the H+ ion concentration of the blood or a fall below normal in pH, despite shifts in bicarbonate concentration.
Synonym(s): acidaemia.
[acid + G. haima, blood]

acidemia (as´idē´mēə),

n a decreased pH level of the blood, irrespective of changes in the blood bicarbonate.
acidemia, isovaleric,
n a genetic disorder of amino acid metabolism in which isovaleric acid accumulates in the blood and urine at abnormally high levels; may respond to a low-protein diet and the administration of synthetic amino acids. See also homocystinuria.
