Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
What is your question regarding your medical conditions?
Hi you did not post your potassium level --do you have serum chem result?
Given that your urine pH is more than 5.5 ( 9 i your case) this is likely distal RTA no doubt.
Hyperkalemic means high potassium level.
Hypokalemic means low potassium level.
Potassium level changes with serum pH not with urine pH.
pH of 9 may be suggestive of hypokalemia since it means alkaline pH.
Hence you should go to the ER for blood tests for confirmation.
