Poststreptococcal Glomerulonephritis (PSGN) Hits my 3yo Son!

Hello dearies!

Sorry for a super late update on this blog! Got busy with other things but I think I cannot let go of blogging even just being in this free hosting site

So, today I would like to share my experience as a mom with this newfound (for me) disease for toddlers. The thing is called post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN). It is a kidney disease that develops 10 to 14 days after a skin or throat infection. The main symptoms are blood in your child's wee and swollen ankles or puffy eyes.

The night we found he has bloody urine

My son is active and playing We are actually happy about how healthy he gets We all thought that he gets fat and we keep hugging him Until one night, I noticed that he has puffy eyes even that time of the day. The following day, his sibling reported bloody urine, so, I checked his urine and I was terrified how red it was.

We then bring him to the nearest Health Center come Monday morning for a check-up and the doctor checking him asked for a BUN Crea Test and a Urinalysis. We then bring the result back to the Health Center and the Doctor advised us to send our child to the hospital for confinement.

We brought him to a bigger hospital and we were asked for more Lab Tests to confirm why he has bloody urine. We were sent home and he was given Antibiotics. The following day we went back to the hospital and the doctor checking him confirmed he has PSGN. We were asked for a Kidney Ultrasound and another Urinalysis and BUN Crea test.

We then bring the results to the Pedia Nephrologist and the Nephro confirmed him having PSGN. We are advised to complete his Antibiotics, monitors his BP and Urine, and observe a low salt diet

We will be back to the doctor on March 7 for a follow-up check-up.

As I have read from different websites, PSGN is not caused by the bacteria itself but of the low immune system of the patient. Thus, I gave my child a daily dose of VitaminC now.

I am hoping that my son will completely recover. His urine is now yellow but turbid. Hopefully, he will be back to the normal soonest.
