What is an algorithm for Renal Tubular acidosis

Step 1: Determine if the patient has a high chloride level and then a low bicarbonate level (hyperchloremic acidosis), normal GFR and normal anion gap and no diahrea Step 2: look at the potassium lvl. if high its RTA 4 and ph 5.5 or less. If low not type 4 Step 3: Look at urine ph. IF lower than 5.5 it RTA type 2. If above then probably not Step 4: Look at bicarbonate level. If its normal its RTA type 1. If low but at 12-20 then its RTA type 2
