Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of using urinary citrate for the screening of potential cases of distal renaltubular acidosis in a population in the northeast of Thailand, an area reported to have a high prevalence of the condition (1). Urinary citrate was assayed by the citrate lyase enzymatic assay (2).
