Complaints such as high fever, abdominal pain, dysuria, hematuria in childhood can be a symptom of extremely important kidney diseases. In general terms, there are several points to be considered to prevent kidney and urinary tract diseases:
1-Water is very important for all living things. Neglecting to drink water – whether it is a child or an adult – causes kidney diseases in everyone. It should be remembered that water carries nutrients and oxygen to organs, regulates metabolism, removes toxic substances from the body, fights infections, balances body temperature and is indispensable for body health. From the 6th month onwards, 30-100 ml of water should be drunk after meals. After the age of 1, in order to acquire the habit of drinking water, it should be ensured that the child or child determines the water container and learns to drink his own water.
2-Excess salt consumption damages the kidneys. The amount of salt the body needs is not even about 1 teaspoon daily. Therefore, instead of encouraging the consumption of salt by putting salt shakers on the tables and not even tasting the food, it should be accustomed to eating less salty from childhood.
3-Sometimes parents tell their children to hold their pee because they have jobs or because there is no suitable environment. Sometimes children dive into the game and keep their urine. This can lead to urinary tract infections.
4-If there is a genetic kidney failure in the family, it should be checked whether the child’s kidney functions at least once a year.
5-Even the drug that you think is the most harmless can have serious side effects. Therefore, do not give your children medication unless the doctor recommends it.

- As with all body health, it is important to live and exercise for the kidneys.
