Some Causes of Kidney Disease in Children

Section 1 / 6

When parents first hear their child has kidney disease, they may wonder what they could have done to prevent it. These feelings are common. In most cases, however, there's no way anyone could know their child would get kidney disease and usually nothing that could have been done to stop it. Focusing on what can be done now, such as getting proper treatment, following doctor's advice, working with your child's healthcare team and learning all you can about the disease, are the best ways to help your child after the diagnosis.

The following information uncovers some of the common causes of kidney disease in children and the popular treatments.
