[3] Alkaline urine caused by urea-splitting organisms (Proteus, Klebsiella, Serratia and Enterobacter) is responsible for struvite stones (ammonium magnesium phosphate stones).
Struvites are crystals of Magnesium ammonium phosphate that form in strongly alkaline urine. Their presence even in small amounts in markedly alkaline urine is indicative of urinary tract infection with urease producing microorganisms usually Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, or less frequently Corynebacterium urealyticum, responsible for encrusted cystitis and/ or pyelitis (Daudon et al., 2016).
Struvites form in alkaline urine, so they often can be dissolved with an acidic diet.
The alkaline urine PH in the setting of a significantly low serum bicarbonate level suggested a distal-type RTA.
Further, hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis (blood pH of 7.3) and alkaline urine pH (7) indicated distal RTA.
This includes a Proteus mirabilis infection, which creates alkaline urine, and the impact of certain medications that can alter the urinary pH in either direction (16).
In alkaline urine especially, indoxyl is oxidised to indigo (a blue pigment) and indirubin (a red pigment).
Alkaline urine (i.e., 7.0-7.9) is associated with, but not limited to, vegetarian or low-carbohydrate diets, vomiting, hyperventilation, UTIs with urease-producing bacteria, and certain medications.
It is associated with increased calcium and decreased potassium excretion, the higher excretion of calcium in alkaline urine tends to form calciferous stones with phosphates.
In addition, test strips can give false positive results such as in alkaline urine, highly concentrated urine, hematuria, when using certain drugs, etc., or false negative results such as in diluted urine (relative density <1.015) or when the urinary proteins are of non-albumin nature [4].
[5] It is known to occur with alkaline urine. [6] Although referred to as syndrome, it is actually an uncommon phenomenon of urine discoloration mostly due to urinary tract infection (UTI).
Some are found in acidic or neutral urine, some are found in alkaline urine, and the fact that they are most often clinically insignificant makes identifying any associated pathology more difficult.
