What are the diagnostic Tests that might be done?

Acute:The acute form develops suddenly. You may get it after an infection in your throat or on your skin. Sometimes, you may get well on your own.Other times, your kidneys may stop working unless effective treatment is started quickly.

The early signs of the acute disease are:

Proteinuria: Large amounts of protein in the urine
Hematuria: Blood in the urine
Reduced glomerular filtration rate: Inefficient filtering of wastes from the blood
Hypoproteinemia: Low blood protein
Edema: Swelling in parts of the body

One or more of these symptoms can be the first sign of kidney disease. But how would you know, for example, whether you have proteinuria? Before seeing a doctor, you may not. But some of these symptoms have signs, or visible manifestations.

Signs and symptoms of kidney failure include:

•
Lack of appetite
• Nausea and vomiting
• Fatigue
•
Difficulty sleeping
• Dry and itchy skin
•
Muscle cramps, especially at night.

My son had this when he was 4 as a result of HSP. When admitted into Childrens Hospital he was in 80% kidney failure. However, in 4 days his kidneys were functionally almost normally. The DR. said he didnt understand how he recovered so quickly. I am looking for statistics as to this type of recovery.
