Hi, @alipk, you must be very worried about your sons. It sounds like you have come to this site to get professional medical consultation about their condition, renal tubular acidosis (RTA) – a condition where the kidneys do not remove acids from the blood into the urine as they should.

Doctors do not follow this site. If you would like to seek the advice of Mayo Clinic experts at Mayo Clinic's Children Center, you can submit a request online here:

Have the children been diagnosed with RTA? How are the boys doing?
