7) Although the mechanism for protein-mediated urate excretion had not been determined, at least one investigator has suggested that it may be the action of amino acids rather than intact protein, competing as weak acids at renal urate transporters, that acts to block urate uptake and induce uricosuria.
The need to prevent malignancy-related hyperuricemia and tumor lysis syndrome due to cytolytic therapy for hematologic malignancies, with massive uricosuria precluding the use of uricosuric drugs.
However, no evidence of other tubular dysfunction, such as glucosuria, uricosuria, or bicarbonaturia was noticed in patients with hypokalemia and inappropriate kaliuresis.
On admission, hypouricemia with inappropriate uricosuria (FE of uric acid >10%), renal phosphate wasting (FE of phosphate >20%), inappropriate kaliuria (FE of potassium >9%), and serum potassium concentrations near the lower limit of the reference interval were found (9, 10).
