Protien Skimmer & Alk: Strange Relationship

My protien skimmer wasn't working for a while and I couldn't figure out why. In completely unrelated events I tested my alk and noticed it to be a little (lot) low. Upon bumping it back up to acceptable range my skimmer started producing again. What is THAT all about?! Anyone know the relationship between my skimmer skimming and my alk?
