Pathologist Comment

Interpretation

&UGAPP “In the setting of a normal anion gap metabolic acidosis a positive urine anion gap suggests reduced ammonium excretion and is consistent with type I (distal) renal tubular acidosis or hypoaldosteronism. (Ann Clin Biochem 1999; 36:408-422)”

 

 

 

&UGAPN “In the setting of a normal anion gap metabolic acidosis a negative urine anion gap is consistent with appropriate ammonium excretion or type II (proximal) renal tubular acidosis. (Ann Clin Biochem 1999; 36:408-422)”
