Primary Toni Debre Fanconi Syndrome

Last updated Aug. 31, 2017

The topic Primary Toni Debre Fanconi Syndrome you are seeking is a synonym, or alternative name, or is closely related to the medical condition Fanconi Syndrome.

Quick Summary:

  • Fanconi Syndrome is a disorder affecting certain kidney filtration tubes (the proximal renal tubes) that causes vital nutrients and minerals to be leached out of the body through urine, instead of being reabsorbed into the bloodstream
  • Some of the important substances that get drained out of the body include glucose, uric acid, amino acids, phosphates, and bicarbonates. The subsequent loss causes various deficiency-related defects, retarded growth, and could even be potentially fatal
  • Fanconi Syndrome is either an inherited or acquired abnormality; the condition being acquired due to usage of certain drugs, heavy metals, or other medical conditions. Currently, there are no methods available to prevent the inherited form of this abnormality
  • It is a difficult and complicated condition that needs urgent and active treatment administration. The prognosis of Fanconi Syndrome is dependent upon many factors that include the severity of the condition, the quantum of loss of nutrients and minerals, and whether the syndrome is acquired or inherited
