Go Lightwood - Albright Syndrome

Lightwood - Albright Syndrome

Lightwood-Albright Syndrome is renal acidosis without glomerular insufficiency, with or without nephrocalcinosis, and with kidney stones. Distal sections of the tubules of the kidneys during this disease are not able to excrete acidic products, as a result sodium, potassium, calcium are strongly excreted in the urine, which leads to a decrease in sodium and bicarbonate levels and an increase in plasma chlorine. Hypokalemia leads to muscle weakness. Calcium may be deposited in the pyramids of the brain layer of the kidneys or the formation of stones in the urinary tract. Bones vary in the type of secondary hyperparathyroidism. In many cases, the disease causes ascending chronic pyelonephritis.

Treatment: alkaline-rich food, the use of a solution of 15% citric acid and 10% sodium citrate.
