      Synonyms. Uranii Nitras. Uranic Nitrate. Common name. Nitrate of Uranium. Preparation. Triturations.,


The chief action of Uranium nitr. is upon the kidneys where it causes a degeneration, with albuminuria or glycosuria. It increases the total quantity and specific gravity of the urine, and produces acridity, with mucus discharges and incontinence. Its chief therapeutic application has been in the treatment of diabetes (both mellitus and insipidus) and in Bright’s disease. Dr. Hughes considers it best suited to cases of diabetes originating in dyspepsia or assimilative derangement, white Phosphoric Acid is better adapted to those of nervous origin. In this I can, from my own experience, fully concur. Its most marked clinical symptom is ‘great emaciation, debility, and tendency to ascites or general dropsy.”

Compare. Arsenicum, Argentum, Nit., merc. cor., Phosphorus, Phosphorus ac.
