Renal Tubular Acidosis Symptoms And Treatments

It is a disorder that may be inherited or a symptom of an underlying disease. Experts believe that this type of RTA is caused by abnormal genes, although in most occasions it occurs due to systemic diseases such as lupus and Sjgrens syndrome.Other conditions and diseases associated with Type 1 RTA include analgesic nephropathy, chronic active hepatitis, hereditary deafness, hyperparathyroidism, hyperthyroidism, primary biliary cirrhosis, and sickle cell anemia. Classical distal RTA is also associated with chronic urinary tract infections, obstructive uropathy, rejection of a transplanted kidney, and renal medullary cystic disease. Most of these conditions and diseases cause abnormal calcium deposits build up in the kidney and impairment of the distal tubule function. Another consequence of Type 1 RTA is low levels of potassium , which results from excess excretion of potassium into the urine by the kidneys instead of returning it to the bloodstream. Renal tubular acidosis symptoms associated with inadequate potassium levels include muscle paralysis, irregular heartbeat, weakness or even death. It is common in children and occurs as part of Fanconis syndrome. Proximal renal tubular Continue reading >>

    So, three weeks into my ULC experiment (I'm trying not to eat any carbs, apart from those that come in salad dressings, a small bit of ketchup and any veg that I eat), and things are going wonderfully: I'm never hungry, my BG never goes above 6mmol/l, I'm losing weight every day and my ketostix are turning a lovely shade of purple.
    I have one big question though:
    All of the Atkins induction stuff warns you about eating enough carbs to knock you out of ketosis (Steve Phinney reckons that it can take 5-7 days to recover from a small carbohydrate snacking incident). But how come when I came back from running yesterday, my BG was suddenly at 9mmol/l, obviously as a result of a huge liver dump. Won't this knock me out of ketosis too? Isn't releasing that amount of glucose into my blood exactly the same as me socffing down a mars bar and some chocolate hobnobs?

    Hey Stephen
    That's a very good question. When it happened to me a while back (went from low 3's to 7.something in 10 minutes) I noticed I was back down in the 5's again within another 20 min or so. I wonder if it is your muscles soaking it up as presumably its them that are in need of the energy at that point? Alternatively have no idea! Are you still peeing purple?

It's hard to tell xyzzy - it was very purple last night (my run was at 9am), but back to beige today.
    Ketostix are very tricky though, eats easy to flush the keytones out by drinking too much liquid.
    You're probably right that the increased BG is soaked up quickly after high-intensity exercise, however it must have provoked an insulin response to do that, which is what I was trying to avoid.

Kidney Health Care (khc)

Providing information about the kidneys, kidney health, and other kidney related conditions such as kidney disease and kidney stones. Renal Tubular Acidosis Symptoms and Causes Renal tubular acidosis, otherwise known as RTA, is a condition that occurs when your blood becomes too acidic because of kidney abnormality. Because of failure of the kidneys to excrete it out of the body, acids build up in the blood, which can lead to growth retardation, kidney stones, bone disease, chronic kidney disease, and possibly total kidney failure . One of the main functions of your kidneys is to maintain normal levels of acids and bases in your body (acid-base or pH balance). You normally produce acids from chemical reactions that occur when your body is turning food into energy and repairing body tissues. A little acid in your blood is normal. However, too much of this can lead to acidosis, which can affect many of your bodily functions. A base or alkaline such as bicarbonate can be reabsorbed by your kidneys to help neutralize this acid in the blood. Sometimes, however, something goes wrong and kidney structures are not able to reabsorb bicarbonate. Thus, acid is not neutralized in the blood ca Continue reading >>

    I already have the PrecisionXtra made by Abbott. It will test both ketones and glucose - but not on the same strip!!
    You buy glucose strips separate and they are like other brands where you usually buy 50-100 at a time, and maybe a bit higher $$ than average glucose.
    Ketone strips are usually easier to buy online (EBay, Amazon, etc). They are usually 10 to a box and price runs $2-3 per strip - or cheaper maybe in Canada. They are a different foil pack color so you can either go by color or by the fact that glucose or Ketone are clearly printed on whichever one you are looking at. In addition, I have seen Ketone strips "cheaper" but they are closer to their expiration date. So you watch out for that.
    To my mind, the PrecisionXtra tests too high for glucose. Or else the old model I had (freestyle, also by Abbott, glucose only, a hand me down from my stepdad) was not working properly and read Low and/or I'm still in denial.
    What's that saying - there is no river in denial??
    So I have been going nuts trying to analyze the prices for the Nova Max Plus equipment, which from all appearances, will do the same as my PrecisionXtra but cheaper. Some will sell just the meter itself and I prolly don't need a new lancet specifically. EBay seems to have the cheapest just for the box of Ketone strips. So I may by the meter from Amazon or from the NovaMax website, and buy the strips from eBay. Or I may get the whiz-bang "free" meter with your choice of 2 box configurations - 2 boxes of ketone strips (total of 20 strips); 2 boxes of glucose (total 100 glucose strips); or 1 box Ketone (10) strips and 1 box of glucose (50) --- all three combos land at $39.98 or some such (and I am pretty much repeating what someone else said earlier here, or in another thread, sorry, more as confirming that I wasn't crazy since someone else had same info.)... thinking I may just do it that way, and then plan to buy replacement strips from the eBay vendors.
    Decisions decisions...
    Then I want to compare with the PrecisionXtra and see what my numbers are...

    What is the site to get it? It's a different meter than one a diabetic uses to check for glucose level right?

    So I have questions about the blood testing for ketones. Are you using the standard diabetic testing supplies? The meter looks the same, but are there different types of test strips? or is it the same and there is a different reading you look for? obviously I'm confused

Genetic Causes And Mechanisms Of Distal Renal Tubular Acidosis

Genetic causes and mechanisms of distal renal tubular acidosis Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine Correspondence and offprint requests to: Daniel Batlle; E-mail: [email protected] Search for other works by this author on: Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation, Volume 27, Issue 10, 1 October 2012, Pages 36913704, Daniel Batlle, Syed K. Haque; Genetic causes and mechanisms of distal renal tubular acidosis, Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation, Volume 27, Issue 10, 1 October 2012, Pages 36913704, The primary or hereditary forms of distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) have received increased attention because of advances in the understanding of the molecular mechanism, whereby mutations in the main proteins involved in acidbase transport result in impaired acid excretion. Dysfunction of intercalated cells in the collecting tubules accounts for all the known genetic causes of dRTA. These cells secrete protons into the tubular lumen through H+-ATPases functionally coupled to the basolateral anion exchanger 1 (AE1). The substrate for both transporters is provided by the catalytic activity of the cytosolic carbonic Continue reading >>

    What I've tried so far: Increased water (Almost a gallon per day) Decreased Dairy (little cheese weekly, no milk in my coffee, coconut milk in recipes etc) Increased lean meats (Chicken, tuna, turkey etc) I do not drink/use artificial sweeteners (Unless in a "dessert" recipe) I work out (Body pump twice a week, jogging, 1-2x a week, spinning, once a week and I ride my bike with my daughter to school) My husband (a huge keto advocate) is encouraging me not to give up and says I am just gaining lean muscle.... I don't know, I am getting pretty frustrated. I weigh over 200lbs at 5'5 and I am size 12/14- so I have a lot to lose. Am I missing something? Does anyone have any tips?
