Child may have jaundice. Father has one kidney remaining after posterior urethral valves

A coworker mentioned her concern of jaundice in my 9 month old. No history of health problems in baby. His dad has one remaining kidney following Posterior urethral Valves as a child. Normal appetite and wet diapers, no change of stools . No sign of dehydration . Could there be a liver or kidney issue I should be concerned about? He doesn t look jaundiced to me. Thanks Cl

Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney.
I have read your query in detail. I understand your concern.
There is no point in getting confused.
Simply go to a doctor, if your doctor can see clinically any sign of jaundice, he/she would get you investigated.
Things would be clear.
This is my best advice for you with the available details, if you have any further query, please ask us.
Stay Healthy
