Paediatric Urology is a branch of medicine that deals with kidney function and bladder control in children. It deals with providing care for children who are born with congenital abnormalities of the urinary tract, as well as those who were born prematurely or have other clinical problems. Many parents are unaware that their children may have a common urological problem, such as urinary tract infection or kidney stones says "Dr. Kalyan Kumar A.V, MBBS, MS, DNB, Consultant Urologist and Andrologist, Star Hospitals

 

COMMON PAEDIATRIC UROLOGY PROBLEMS

 

  • Nocturnal enuresis, or bedwetting, is a common medical problem in children. Bed wetting can be caused by several factors including: inappropriate production of urine at night, sleep apnea, constipation and daytime bladder problems such as overactive bladder syndrome. It may also be due to a psychological cause.

 

  • Urinary tract infections, or UTI for short. A urinary tract infection is an inflammation of the bladder and urethra due to bacteria from a contaminated environment invading it. This often causes pain during urination, blood in urine, strong urge to pee without being able to, and a fever.
  •  
  • Hernia is a common urology problem in children, and the symptoms may not be obvious. A hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue pushes through a weak area of muscle wall called a diaphragm.

 

5 LIFESTYLE TIPS FOR HEALTHY KIDNEYS

 

Tip #01 - Get Enough Sleep, it can help you avoid kidney diseases. When we don’t get enough sleep our body releases stress hormones that may cause inflammation in the kidneys or damage to blood vessels leading to them.

Tip #02 - Eat a Balanced Diet: A balanced diet is full of nutrients and antioxidants that protect the kidneys from damage or disease caused by toxins in our environment

Tip #03 - Drink Plenty of Water: It's vital to drink plenty of water every day because it helps keep your body hydrated which can help prevent kidney stones.

Tip #04 - Regular exercise is helpful for everyone, but it can be particularly beneficial if your child is prone to kidney diseases because regular exercise may help slow down the progression of the condition and reduce symptoms like fatigue.

Tip #05 – Help your child to maintain optimum weight. Do not impose strict restrictions but monitor their calorie intake. Take necessary measures and provide them with alternate healthy food items to gratify their taste buds.
