Flashcards in Renal Tubular Acidosis Deck (3)
Metabolic acidosis, hyopkalemia and a urine pH >5.5
- type of tubular acidosis?
-increased risk of...?
Distal (type 1) tubular acidosis
-defect in ability of alpha intercalated cells to secrete H+
-No new HCO3- is generated
causes: amphotericin B toxicity, analgesic nephropathy, congenital anomalies (obstruction) of urinary tract
increase risk for calcium phosphate kidney stones
metabolic acidosis, Hypokalemima and a
pH less than 5.5
Proximal (Type 2) tubular acidosis
-defect in PCT HCO3- reabsorption
- increase excretion of HCO3- and subsequent metabolic acidosis
-Causes: Fanconi syndrome and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors
Increased risk for hypophosphatemic rickets
