A new study shows that a pioneering initiative to prevent shaken baby syndrome was associated with a 35-per-cent reduction in the number of children under two admitted to B.C. hospitals with shaking-related injuries.
Kidney problems occur in children as in adults. Many children are recognized as being at risk before or shortly after birth, but some will not be identified, or will develop kidney disease later in life.
I am interested in developing tools that can: a) accurately predict a child's true renal function without use of specialized hospital based testing, and b) be used to develop an estimate of the number of children in BC who either have, or are at high risk of developing renal disease at some point in the future.
