larascon  Excellent explanation, thank you ! +1  
waterloo  It's worth mentioning, that 25% of Na is reabs in the thicc ascending limb. 67% of filtered Na is reabsorbed in the PCT, whereas 85% of phosphate reabsorbed in the PCT. So pt more likely to show Hypophos. +  
coconut  UWorld QID:7626 says lab results in people with Fanconi syndrome will show hypokalemia +  
j44n  coconut i thought that too but then i remebred fanconi is associated with hypophosphatemic rickets/ VIT D resistant rickets and this little dude is going to be growing because he's 5 and thats gonna increase the demand for phosphate in his body +

medschul  Wouldn't Fanconi syndrome also cause hypokalemia though? +4  
yotsubato  Especially considering the fact that the DCT will be working in overdrive to compensate for lost solutes??? +1  
nala_ula  This question did not make sense to me at all. I knew it was Fanconi syndrome yet didn't select the obvious answer because it said "follow up examination 1 week after diagnosis". I thought it would already be in treatment... I searched (now) and it says that treatment is basically replenishing was is lost in the urine. So definitely the wording is like wtf to me +1  
sugaplum  I was thinking since it affected the PCT that Na resorption would be affected as well? But I guess the other segments will pick up the slack? +
