The increasing number of kidney disorders maybe related to changes in lifestyle and unhealthy habits. “Parents and children need to understand that with changing lifestyle, they should be cautious of inheriting several kidney-related diseases that may hamper their health. Hypertension, blood pressure are the new symptoms visible in children, which are clear signs that they can be a patient of severe kidney disorders,” said Pankaj Hari, Associate Professor at department of Pediatrics, AIIMS.

On the occasion of the 12th Asian Congress of Pediatrics Nephrology held here on Thursday, around 400 delegates from all over the world came together to showcase advances in care of children with kidney diseases, transplantation among children and supportive management of those who are critically sick.

“During the event, special awareness will be given to parents on how they should undergo the ultra sound test of their new born babies and even during pregnancy to detect any sort of kidney ailment in their baby, if it exist,” said Arvind Bagga, Professor, Pediatrics at AIIMS.

Health experts suggested that establishment of new pediatric nephrology centres with regional collaboration in the country can drive out the existence of kidney disorders among children.

“Pediatric nephrology centres will help in the early detection of kidney related disorders like urinary tract infections, blood pressures among many others in the new born and help them lead a normal childhood and adulthood,” said Arvind Bagga, Professor, Pediatrics at AIIMS.
