St Paul Pediatric Urinalysis
If you suspect that your child may be suffering from a urinary tract infection (UTI), get the care parents rely on from the providers at Dakota Pediatrics. UTIs are caused by bacteria that enter through the urethra. Parents often find it difficult to determine whether their child has a UTI, because kids often have trouble accurately describing what they are feeling. It is important to know that UTI’s are more common in girls than in boys, and symptoms can include abdominal pain, foul smelling urine, bloody urine, and frequent and/or painful urination.
UTI’s are rarely serious when treated, and early intervention is the key to avoiding serious complications. Therefore, it’s important to contact our clinic as soon as possible if you suspect that your child has a UTI. The only way to determine if your child is suffering from a UTI is to get the pediatric urinalysis and urine cultures St Paul parents trust to detect these problems. Once our providers have determined the cause of your child’s symptoms, they will implement a treatment plan appropriate for your child. With antibiotic treatment, the majority of UTIs will clear up within 24 to 48 hours. Call today for an expert diagnosis.Contact us today
