      Child needs to be seen and assessed for uremic symptoms.
      Based on symptoms and reports including potassium, bicarbonate and creatinine, decision on dialysis will be taken by the treating Nephrologist.
      If properly treated kidney diseases are not life threatening, please follow up with the Nephrologist.
