Renal tubular acidosis Understanding

Renal tubular acidosis (RTA): Overview

Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is a disease that occurs when the kidneys fail to excrete acids into the urine, which causes a person's blood to remain too acidic. Without proper treatment, chronic acidity of the blood leads to growth retardation, kidney stones, bone disease, chronic kidney disease, and possibly total kidney failure. The body's cells use chemical reactions to carry out tasks such as turning food into energy and repairing tissue. These chemical reactions generate acids. Some acid in the blood is normal, but too much acid - acidosis - can disturb many bodily functions. Healthy kidneys help maintain acid-base balance by excreting acids into the urine and returning bicarbonate - an alkaline, or base, substance - to the blood. This reclaimed bicarbonate neutralizes much of the acid that is created when food is broken down in the body. The movement of substances like bicarbonate between the blood and structures in the kidneys is called transport.


Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is usually asymptomatic. Severe electrolyte disturbances are rare but can be life threatening. Nephrolithiasis and nephrocalcinosis are possible, particularly with type 1 RTA.

Signs of ECF volume depletion may develop from urinary water loss accompanying electrolyte excretion in type 2 RTA.

People with type 1 or type 2 Renal tubular acidosis may show symptoms and signs of hypokalemia, including muscle weakness, hyporeflexia, and paralysis. Bony involvement (eg, bone pain and osteomalacia in adults and rickets in children) may occur in type 2 and sometimes in type 1 Renal tubular acidosis.


To diagnose Renal tubular acidosis, doctors check the acid-base balance in blood and urine samples. If the blood is more acidic than it should be and the urine less acidic than it should be, Renal tubular acidosis may be the reason, but additional information is needed to rule out other causes. If RTA is the reason, additional information about the sodium, potassium, and chloride levels in the urine and the potassium level in the blood will help identify which type of Renal tubular acidosis a person has.

  • Varies by type
  • Often alkali therapy
  • Treatment of concomitant abnormalities related to potassium, calcium, and phosphate metabolism
Treatment consists of correction of pH and electrolyte balance with alkali therapy. Failure to treat Renal tubular acidosis in children slows growth. Alkaline agents such as sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, or sodium citrate help achieve a relatively normal plasma bicarbonate concentration (22 to 24 mEq/L [22 to 24 mmol/L]). Potassium citrate can be substituted when persistent hypokalemia is present or, because sodium increases calcium excretion, when calcium calculi are present.

Vitamin D (eg, ergocalciferol 800 IU po once/day) and oral calcium supplements (elemental calcium 500 mg po tid, eg, as calcium carbonate, 1250 mg po tid) may also be needed to help reduce skeletal deformities resulting from osteomalacia or rickets.

Renal tubular acidosis Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Renal tubular acidosis report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Renal tubular acidosis Emerging Drugs

ADV7103: Advicenne

ADV7103 is an innovative prolonged-release granule combination of potassium citrate and potassium bicarbonate. In 2017, ADV7103 was granted orphan drug designation by the European Commission in the treatment of distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA), a rare kidney disorder that occurs when the kidneys are unable to effectively remove the buildup of circulating acids in the blood. ADV7103 is currently in Phase III clinical trials for this indication in Europe, the United States and Canada, and a marketing application for the drug candidate has been submitted for centralized European review.
