Dose your child get Kidney Failure in Children? What is Chronic Kidney Failure in Children?
Chronic Kidney Failure in children may induced by congenital kidney disease, urinary tract deformity, untreated nephritis etc. At the early stage the disease manifests enuresis nocturna increase, polydipsia, anorexia, fatigue, slowed growth and development, anemia and so on. Some of the children with this disease may have symptoms like sicchasia, serious vomit, and even nosebleed, vellication, coma, digestive tract bleeding and such symptoms of uremia. And if your child is tested that the GFR (glomerular filtration rate) is 30-60ml/min, , and50%~70% of the nephrons are normal. It explains though the Renal reserve capacity is lost, but the ability of excreting waste and adjusting water , electrolyte and acid-base balance is still good, so there is no special manifestation, just creatinine and blood urea nitrogen are higher sometimes. And the disease of your Child is at the early stage of Chronic Kidney Failure. You should seek treatment for your child timely.
Experts remind that diagnosing the disease early is very important to children with Kidney Failure, and we can discover some dormant kidney diseases by regular uroscopy. So once we discovered the children have symptoms like eyelids edema, much foam in their urine, and fever, anemia, polydipsia, enuresis nocturna, feeble and inappetence or slowed growth and development, we must take them to do tests of renal function and urinary system in time. Thus the disease can be diagnosed and treated early. Or let it down, it will develop into uremia.
Once the disease develops into uremia, children with this disease should be treated with long time dialysis or even kidney transplant. That will bring heavy economic and mental burden to their family.
