ABSTRACT: Urinary acidification was studied in six unrelated infants with fetal alcohol syndrome and eight healthy age-matched infants. Creatinine clearance, fractional sodium excretion, plasma renin activity, and plasma aldosterone were normal in all patients but fractional potassium excretion was lower in the patients than in the controls (p = 0.0001). After ammonium chloride loading, minimum urine pH was significantly higher in FAS patients than in control subjects (5.5 ± 0.1 and 4.7 ± 0.1… CONTINUE READING
