Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)
Kidney problems in a 2 year old
My daughter has been tested for vitamin D twice and both tests gave the result that she was low on vitamin D even though she is consuming enough of it. Also, she has high levels of uric acid with none being released in her urine. We have been referred to an endocrinologist and a nephrologist. But the appointments are set for a month away and I`m going crazy with questions. What can we expect from the specialists and what are these symptoms of?
It is unclear why she was tested for vitamin D in the first place. The specialists will probably run more serum (blood) and urine tests and possibly radiological testing. Without more information, it is impossible to provide more information regarding your question.
