Sodium transport and bone mineral density in hypercalciuria with thiazide treatment

Erythrocyte sodium-potassium (Na+/K+) -ATPase and sodium-lithium (Na+/Li+) countertransport activities were measured in 18 children (aged 9.6 years, range 6–16 years) with idiopathic hypercalciuria (IHU) to evaluate cellular Na handling. The effect of chronic thiazide administration on these parameters and on bone mineral density was also evaluated… CONTINUE READING
