Disodium Hydrogen Citrate Syrup is a medicine used to treat certain urinary problems like kidney stones, gout, and a condition called renal tubular acidosis. Kidney stones are like tiny rocks that form in the kidneys due to minerals and acids sticking together in urine. Renal tubular acidosis is when the kidneys don’t remove enough acids from the body, making the blood too acidic.

Disodium Hydrogen Citrate Syrup contains a substance called disodium hydrogen citrate. When you take it, it turns into a chemical called bicarbonate in your body which helps to make the urine less acidic by increasing the amount of bicarbonate ions in it making it easier for certain substances like cysteine and uric acid to dissolve in the urine, which can further help prevent kidney stones and other urinary problems.

Medical Benefits

  • It acts as a urinary alkalizer, used for treating conditions like renal tubular acidosis, gout, and kidney stones.
  • It helps to enhance the excretion of free bicarbonate ions. This process enhances the solubility of cysteine in urine and converts uric acid into soluble urate ions.
  • It helps to raise the urinary pH levels, reducing acidity.
  • It helps in the management of urinary tract infections.
