Thanks for your query.

You have symptoms like Puffy eyes, pain in abdomen and flank, with nausea. Your routine Urine examination revealed trace of blood and protein. It will be better if you provide following information that will help me to suggest to your problem.

1) Are you Diabetic?
2) Do you have High Blood Pressure?
3) Do you get UTI frequently?
4) Are you taking any medications for other illness since a long time.?.
5) Have you done your renal function tests? (Blood urea and Serum Creatinine)?
6) Have you done Ultrasound scanning of Abdomen?

From the facts that you have forwarded it appears that you have Renal Parenchymal disease. Kindly revert. I shall be happy to address your queries.

Thanks with Regards.

Thanks for reverting.

You had frequent attacks of Urinary tract infection (UTI). It will be advisable to get Ultrasound scanning done as it will reveal the Parenchymal thickness of the Kidneys that determines the renal function and whether there is scarring of the the parenchyma suggesting extent of the damage of the kidneys. Get your renal function test done at earliest (Serum Creatinine and Blood Urea). These are the important parameters of the Kidney function and the result of the test are available within few hours. Please feel free to write me again after getting the results of these tests.

With Regards.

Hi Doctor, My 14 month old daughter is diagnosed with Urinary tract infection.The infection has reached to a critical stage by the time we came to know about it WBC 100, RBC =5-7 with bacteria E.Coli.Then she was admitted and was given IV for three days. After 3 days she was put on an oral anitbiotic Orfloxin Since the infection was under control i.e. WBC = 20-25 but she didnt respond well to that anti. and within a week the WBC again went to around 50. She was then given Amicacyn injections for seven days. With these injections WBC count has come to normal but showd an increasing trend i.e. from 3-5 to 5-7 in last day of injection. So she has been put on Amoxylin. We consulted on more doctor and he prescribed Taxim for her. So I just want to know which to follow and is this an indication towards VUR or just that infection is chronic and hence taking a long time to vanish? Please help

He gets really bad abdominal pain and an upset stomach and the dr s here don t seem to be doing anything can you give an idea on what to do? \I have a daughter that has urinary tract infections all the time. She has had fevers for the last week,and she has lower abdominal pain and back pain. She has also been complaining of headaches and her shoulder joints and her knees are sore.
