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 >>

    Yesterday my mismanagement of my emotions resulted in a big carb binge.
    I want to get back into keto as quick as possible. I've got back to my normal eating today 120g p/ 30g cabs max, 90+g+ f
    I do a CKD having a controlled carb refeed every 2 weeks or so! And get back into keto usually after 36 hours.
    Not sure it will be as quick with what I ate!
    Is there anything else I can do to help? I lift 5 times a week and occasional cardio, will doing extra training sessions or cardio help?
    Or is it continue as usually and wait?
    I feel so good in Keto, pretty rubbish at the moment!

    Exercise does help sometimes, especially the high intensity cardio work outs. Your body starts making ketones when there isn't enough glucose for organs like brain. Burning those carbs at high intensity might help.

This is a review of the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of Renal Tubular Acidosis intended for 3rd and 4th year medical students and others learning clinical medicine.

Renal Tubular Acidosis

Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is acidosis and electrolyte disturbances due to impaired renal hydrogen ion excretion (type 1), impaired bicarbonate resorption (type 2), or abnormal aldosterone production or response (type 4). (Type 3 is extremely rare and is not discussed.) Patients may be asymptomatic, display symptoms and signs of electrolyte derangements, or progress to chronic kidney disease. Diagnosis is based on characteristic changes in urine pH and electrolytes in response to provocative testing. Treatment corrects pH and electrolyte imbalances using alkaline agents, electrolytes, and, rarely, drugs. RTA defines a class of disorders in which excretion of hydrogen ions or reabsorption of filtered bicarbonate is impaired, leading to a chronic metabolic acidosis with a normal anion gap. Hyperchloremia is usually present, and secondary derangements may involve other electrolytes, such as potassium (frequently) and calcium (rarelysee Table: Some Features of Different Types of Renal Tubular Acidosis* ). Chronic RTA is often associated with structural damage to renal tubules and may progress to chronic kidney disease .

    Bad keto breath

    I have been oil pulling to keep my breath from being a dumpster fire. You basically take a teaspoon of coconut oil and swish it around in your mouth for 20-30 minutes. I do this in the shower usually. Spit the goo out in your garbage so you don't clog your drain. Rinse your mouth well with water, then brush your teeth. Works pretty well!😁

    If anyone's interested, I use Uncle Harry's natural toothpaste. There's no sugar or artificial ingredients. It is "clay-like" and has a different texture from typical toothpaste, but I got used to it very quickly. And his whitening toothpaste has worked better than anything I've ever tried.
    They're $6 for 3oz jars. A jar lasts me about 3 months brushing twice a day. He also has a mouthwash that I am a huge fan of. I used it every night since this January, and I just ran out last week (beginning of May). I think it's only $5 for a bottle. Thought I'd throw this out there for anyone interested :)

    Oh this is awesome to hear about! I've just checked it out on Amazon and it's not too much money! I like the idea of it, think I may look into this more.
    Would you say your mouth feels as fresh using it as it does with normal toothpaste?

Renal Tubular Acidosis (rta)

By L. Aimee Hechanova, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Texas Tech University; Attending Nephrologist, University Medical Center (See also Introduction to Disorders of Kidney Tubules .) In renal tubular acidosis, the kidney tubules malfunction, resulting in excess levels of acid in the blood. The tubules of the kidneys that remove acid from the blood are damaged when a person takes certain drugs or has another disorder that affects the kidneys. Often muscle weakness and diminished reflexes occur when the disorder has been present for a long time. Blood tests show high acid levels and a disturbance of the body's acid-base balance. Some people drink a solution of baking soda every day to neutralize the acid. To function normally, body acids and alkali (such as bicarbonate) must be balanced. Normally, the breakdown of food produces acids that circulate in the blood. The kidneys remove acids from the blood and excrete them in the urine. This function is predominantly carried out by the kidney tubules . In renal tubular acidosis, the kidney tubules malfunction in one of two ways that tend to increase acids in the blood ( metabolic acidosis ): Too little of the acids the body produc Continue reading >>

    Been doing keto for almost a year, on and off. So finally decided to try the ketostix, (CVS store brand "Ketone Care Test Strips"). Cut out all carbs as possible with the exception of my fiber supplement in the last 2 days, at 14 carbs for 2050 calories. My results were almost Moderate 40. So just to see if they're a gimmick, I did a mild carb up last night with a bowl of menudo with lemon and geen onions, a bowl of cereal and 1%, a quesadilla, and one package of Handisnacks. I know it was a dirty carb up! so did the test this morning and got a negative result. I started back on keto this morning with 3 eggs scrambled with 15g heavy whipping cream, 1 farmer john wiener, 28g marbled jack cheese, 23g of whey = 33% Pro, 2% Carbs, 65% Fat. Waited about 2 hours, tested again, now I'm on Trace 5. So I think these things work. Going to do an hour on the stationary bike now, see if I can rid my body with the rest of the glycogen and produce more ketones. I think its a cool tool to use.

  2. jasonb135

    Just finished the stationary bike for an hour, while maintaining an average HR at about 155, burned 840 calories. Tested at Small 15, I'll try it again tonight a few hours after dinner, hopefully I'll be at Moderate 40 again.

    just so you know from what I understand, as long as their is a trace showing, you are in ketosis. You could be at the mod-large output, but well hydrated with water throughout the day and it will delute you urine so that you are only showing a trace to small. They are great to see if there are ketones or not in your pee, but as far as tracking how much, dude if you are showing ketones, you will be fine, don't waste the strips until after the carb up. also, cut all the strips in half if you haven't already. same results, double the quanitity so you get 100% more for the buck .
