Question Renal tubular acidosis

Has anyone else been diagnosed with renal tubular acidosis? I was just diagnosed with this after about a decade of chronic kidney stones. I was just wondering what medication your doctor has prescribed and if it has prevented any future stones from forming. What has been your experience with this diagnosis and how is your doctor managing it? I've done some online research but I try to stay away from that and would prefer to hear from people who are actually dealing with this!

Thanks ~

Re: Renal tubular acidosis

My urologist called me yesterday after getting the results back from my latest kidney stone. He said it was calcium phosphate, and that because of that and low potassium levels as welLas high acid levels likely means I have renal tubular acidosis. He said he can't be positive because I'm pregnant and that can mess up results, but suggested I take potassium citrate if my ob okays it. He said to be sure they have to do 24 hour urine and various blood tests, but have to wait until after I have my baby. I've read a lot about it since then, and was wondering if anyone knew how common sjogren's is in people with rta? I think I have symptoms of that in addition to rta.
