What happens when your child has kidney disease

Your pediatrician can refer you to a children’s nephrologist or the nearest medical centre that treats children with kidney disease. These experts are also trained to address and treat children in a manner appropriate to their age.

Each of the various kidney diseases has its own course, so
needs to be treated differently. Early diagnosis and treatment
are important in every case so that the consequences of the
disease can be delayed as far as possible, or at least become
less severe.

Early treatment includes:

  • Diet
  • Medication
  • Hormone treatment
  • Vitamins

Regular blood cleansing (dialysis) becomes necessary only
when the kidney function drops to below 10 percent.
