A retrospective study of 91 primary nephrotic syndrome with renal biopsies from January 1979 to February 1988 was done. The age of onset is divided into three groups, there are 23.0 per cent in age group 1- less than 5 years, 44.0 per cent in group 5-10, and 33.0 per cent in age group greater than 10-15 years. The ratio male to female is 2.1:1. The(More)
OBJECTIVE 1. To investigate the amount of citrate and tartrate in aloe gel, and in the urine of healthy normal volunteers, before and after consuming fresh aloe gel. 2. To evaluate the changes in the chemical composition of urine among subjects after taking aloe gel. 3. To determine the value of consuming aloe gel for prevention of renal stone formation. (More)
Anion exchanger 1 (AE1 or SLC4A1) mutations have been reported to cause distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA), a disease characterized by impaired acid excretion in the distal nephron. We have recently demonstrated homozygous AE1 G701D mutation as a common molecular defect of autosomal recessive (AR) dRTA in a group of Thai pediatric patients. In the(More)
Anion exchanger 1 (AE1 or band 3), encoded by the AE1 or SLC4A1 gene, regulates chloride-bicarbonate exchange in erythrocytes and alpha-intercalated cells of the distal nephron. Defects of AE1 at the basolateral membrane of alpha-intercalated cells may result in the failure of hydrogen ion secretion at the apical membrane, leading to distal renal tubular(More)
During an outbreak of dysentery in the Northeastern part of Thailand, eight cases of HUS were admitted to Srinagarind Hospital from April to September 1987. Their ages ranged from 6 months to 6 years (mean age = 2.4 years). All patients had prodromal symptoms of mucous bloody diarrhea. The stool culture was positive for Shigella dysentery type I in one(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the changes of urine in normal subjects after consuming roselle juice in different concentrations and durations which may help the treatment and prevention of renal stone disease. Thirty-six healthy men participated in the study, in which urinalysis, urine electrolytes and indices for measurements of concentration(More)
