Common Symptoms

Although there could be several symptoms, parents should be aware of the following manifestations:
  • The child who spends several hours without going to the bathroom (more than 6 hours) or goes at very short intervals and at all times;
  • If the urine flux is weak or uneven;
  • If the child has pain or burning when urinating, even after treatment for urinary infection;
  • If urine produces foam, bleeding or visible particles such as sand;

There are other signs that can serve as an alert to the doctor, such as high blood pressure or certain laboratory results.
