Children’s nephrologist in Kharkiv
Pediatric nephrology is a branch of medicine that studies the prevention and treatment of kidney and urinary tract diseases in children from the first day of life.
Consultation with a pediatric nephrologist may be necessary for a child at any age: non-diagnosed malformations, infections, or injuries lead to impaired kidney and bladder function.
The sooner the doctor reveals the disorder and selects the appropriate therapy, the higher is the probability of complete restoration of the functions of the urogenital system without complications and recurrences.
In infants up to one year of age, the diseases are usually caused by kidney development abnormalities that were not previously detected, which interfere with the normal functioning of the organs. As a result, the risk of infectious diseases, that are severe in newborns due to an incompletely formed immunity, increases.
Pediatric nephrology deals with the following diseases:
- renal dysplasia;
- hemolytic uremic syndrome;
- anatomical anomalies of the urogenital system;
The kidneys are responsible for excretion of metabolic products from the body and are involved in maintaining homeostasis. Disorders of the urogenital system quickly affect the condition of the whole organism. In order to prevent this, it is important to seek promptly medical assistance from nephrologists in Kharkiv.
What symptoms should be the reason to visit a pediatric nephrologist?
The clinical picture of many pathologies in newborns and older children is different.
Parents are advised to bring the baby to consult with a pediatric nephrologist if one of the following symptoms is detected:
- repeated episodes of sudden crying for no apparent reason;
- sharp unpleasant odor from the diaper, discoloration of urine;
- loss of appetite, problems with weight gain;
- atony, increased drowsiness;
- fever without any other manifestations of infection.
The child can sleep badly at night, be naughty, and crying is increased. The child reacts worse to external stimuli: it is not interested in toys, does not pay attention to surrounding objects, eats without appetite or refuses from food completely.
In older children, diseases of the genitourinary system manifest themselves differently:
- pain, burning or itching when urinating;
- pain in the abdomen, irradiating to the legs or lower back;
- a change in the frequency of urination - urging to urination occurs less frequently or more often with a normal amount of fluid consumed;
- appearance of edema on the face or limbs;
- sharp weight loss;
- weakness, increased fatigue.
Consultation with a pediatric nephrologist may be necessary if a child older 5 years of age suffers from episodes of nocturnal urinary incontinence. An increase in body temperature, pallor of the skin, complaints of a child to frequent headaches, loss of appetite, should get the parents’ attention.
Visit to the children’s nephrologist starts with a survey of the young patient and a general examination. After collecting anamnesis, the doctor prescribes additional studies: general blood and urine tests, ultrasound of the kidneys, bacterial culture, and so on. According to the results, effective therapy is prescribed, which may include both drug treatment and diet adjustment.
