S/S of UTI
fever, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, chills, nocturia, frequency, urgency. suprapubic or lower back pain, burning or pain upon urination

Acute postinfectious glomerulonephritis
a non infectious renal disease that occurs 5-12 days after another type of infection. usually strep (GABHS)

Pharmaceutical management of Nephrotic syndrome
Corticosteroids to decrease proteinuria, Albumin and diuretics to reduce edema and ACE inhibitor to decrease protein excretion
Acute renal failure (ARF)
sudden severe loss of kidney function usually caused by dehydration in children
S/S of ARF
primary symptom is oliguria, metabolic acidosis, azotemiz and electrolyte disturbances
complications of ARF
