What do recurring urine infection and fever in a child indicate?
she has been drinking 5 or 6 servings or more of Cimilac gain plus 4 formula milk per day.could that damage her kidney ? Or what is the problem?
Structural abnormalities could be the root of the problems
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I do not think that the problem is due to her taking Similar Gain Plus 4 and it is unlikely to damage her kidneys. However, let me mention that a child of this age can practically be transitioned to an adult diet low on spices, and does not need to be given formula feeds.
About the recurrent urinary tract infection, structural abnormalities need to be excluded first since such aberrations if pesent, are likely to predispose to infections. I would suggest you to get a DMSA scan done.
Hope that helps.

You should proceed step by step towards the diagnosis
I do not think that excess calcium due to powder milk would really be a factor although calcium stones are occasionally seen. If the scan is ok, I would simply assign it to hygiene. But I think that the scan may have something to reveal.
Let me know after the test
Glad to hear back from you. I will await your response.
There is a possible relation
There is indeed a vague possibility of the infection coming from contaminated water especially since the urethra in girls is relatively small in size. So the possibility cannot be ruled out.
