Question
My son is nonverbal but has carbonate apilite 100% that is secteted in his diaper.  He is 23 years old and disabled by the dpt vaccine.  What might cause this?  What tests might I ask a local urologist for?2

Answer
Kelly

Carbonate appetite or calcium phosphate only forms in alkaline urine which suggests a problem with infection or acid secretion. An x-Ray or ultrasound to look for stones would be reasonable. A 24 hour urine test to look more closely at the urine chemisery might also be considered.
