Kidney disease in children is not a single disease, is caused by a variety of different causes of illness. Among them, acute nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, purpuric nephritis, IgA nephropathy, urinary tract infection and other most common.
A small number of children developed nephritis after acute streptococcal infection, which was caused by poor therapeutic effect or insufficient prevention, resulting in chronic nephritis, most of which were not caused by acute glomerulonephritis. The cause of most chronic nephritis is still not very clear, and may be related to bacteria, viral infections, allergies and other factors.
Taking children nephrotic syndrome as an example, children nephrotic syndrome is a kind of clinical syndrome caused by many reasons. It is characterized by systemic swelling and large amount of proteinuria, and also has hypoproteinemia and hypercholesterolemia. The factors that cause children with nephrotic syndrome generally have the following factors:
(1) primary kidney disease: the patient's own immune dysfunction. Simple nephropathy is a common type, common in children 2 to 7 years old, in addition to the symptoms of kidney disease, not accompanied by microscopic examination of hematuria or hypertension.
(2) congenital kidney disease: This situation is relatively rare, usually from infancy.
(3) secondary kidney disease: secondary to lupus, malaria, allergic purpura, mosquito bites, metal or drug poisoning.
As a parent, if a child has a nephrotic syndrome, he or she must do all kinds of childcare while actively treating it, and pay attention to actively preventing infection and keeping the child's skin clean.
The incidence of nephrotic syndrome in children is more common in children aged 3 to 6 years, and the number of boys is more than that of girls. Parents of children must take active and effective treatment measures after discovering their children's condition, and do not recommend the use of hormone therapy alone. Because such a method is easy to cause side effects to the child growth and development, at the same time easy to relapse.
