“Children Respond to Medicines and Treatments related to Kidney differently than Adults.”

The leaking of protein and blood cells into urine signals serious problem to the kidney
Passage of urine in the undergarments either in day or night time beyond the age of 5 years may indicate some problem.
Bedwetting in children could be linked to kidney disease.
Children who produce excessive amounts of urine also need to urinate frequently, these two symptoms are often considered together.
Certain kidney disorders or kidney damage may led to urinate excessively and the disorders also decrease the amount of fluid reabsorbed by the kidneys.
Urinary tract Infection / Kidney Infection
Most often in a UTI, the linings of bladder, urethra, ureters, and kidneys become red and swollen.

The pain of a kidney stone may last for a short or long time or may come and go in waves. Along with pain, a child may have Nausea & Vomiting, Other symptoms include Fever & Chills.
Kidney stones are a risk factor for CKD, and studies are warranted to assess screening and preventive measures for CKD in stone formers.
A child is diagnosed with hypertension when their average blood pressure is higher when measured multiple times over three visits or more.
Kidney disease is a main cause of high blood pressure and hypertension in children, there is a high risk that these children may eventually have heart problems and a worsening of CKD.
Short Stature with High urea & Creatinine
Kidneys play an important role in a child’s growth, when the kidneys are damaged, growth can be slowed.

Kidney failure is when your kidneys have stopped working well enough for you to survive without dialysis or a kidney transplant. Kidneys have lost their ability to filter waste from your blood.
Kidney failure is usually caused by other health problems that have damaged your kidneys little by little for many years.
Decreased urine output
Decreased urine output, or no urine output, may occurs in the setting of Kidney failure and urinary obstruction.
As the kidneys fail or are compromised in their ability to function, the kidneys lose the ability to regulate fluids and electrolytes and to remove waste products from the body.
Acute Kidney Injury
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is where your kidneys suddenly stop working properly. It can range from minor loss of kidney function to complete kidney failure.
AKI normally happens as a complication of another serious illness. It’s not the result of a physical blow to the kidneys.
