Kidney function in patients with primary distal renal tubular acidosis

May 03 2021
Recent reports indicate that chronic reduction of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is common in patients with distal renal tubular acidosis (DRTA). Factors responsible for decreased GFR need clarification. Our findings confirm the risk of kidney function reduction in patients with DRTA of pediatric age onset, suggesting that low GFR is related with less favorable growth outcome and discloses the high frequency of LBW in primary DRTA, a hitherto unrecognized feature.
