As people's lives slowly enter a fast-paced pattern, a number of chronic diseases are becoming more and more common. In our previous concept, nephritis appeared only in adults, but it is not. Now, nephropathy and uremia are becoming younger and younger. Does kids also get kidney disease?
Early symptoms of nephrotic syndrome in children
The body appears purple or white stripes. In children with nephrotic syndrome, there are cracks in the body, and in many cases, as in pregnant women, there are white lines or purple lines on the inside of the thigh, on the abdomen and on the skin of the chest. But these apparent textures will often be ignored by parents, think it is not important, is the cause of the skin, here to remind, children inexplicably long purple or white lines, it is necessary to timely consider which aspects of the problem!!!
Abnormal urine. If a child's urine appears frequently, or the child's urine color darkens, or even a large amount of sediment is seen in the urine, as well as a foam floating on the surface that does not dissipate, then attention should be paid to it. Urine is a sign of whether kidney is healthy or not, children may be small, lack of knowledge in this respect, will not feel too much attention to their anomalies, as parents we understand, should be timely observation of the child, attention!
Anemia. The most direct cause of anemia is the weakening of the child's immune system, resulting in a decrease in body resistance, resulting in various complications such as childhood nephrotic syndrome. The earliest state of nephrotic syndrome in children is anemia. Children with diabetic nephropathy with obvious azotemia can develop mild to moderate anemia. Parents should pay attention not to ignore the anemia status of their children. The anemia is caused by erythropoiesis and therefore is not treated with iron.
Proteinuria. As mentioned earlier, it is the most direct and effective way to see the health of the kidney from the urine. What is worth mentioning here is that in the early stages of a child's illness, only periodic proteinuria may occur, but if attention is not paid to it in time, With the development of the disease will slowly become persistent urine protein, so it is better to find early!
Edema of varying degrees.
Edema in children is an inevitable symptom at a certain stage of nephrotic development. The edema is changed by gravity. The edema is most obvious in bed for a long time or in the early morning with eyelid, posterior head and sacral edema. Due to the different severity and development of the disease, the severity of edema will be different for each child. Sometimes the degree of edema will also have a significant relationship with salt intake, and it will also lead to a decrease in urine volume. So in terms of diet, intake of salt water, etc. Parents should also pay attention in the diet! Some of the children were able to subside after months or 1 ~ 2 years.
