What Sets Us Apart
Pediatric kidney specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone are experienced in diagnosing and treating infants and children with renal tubular disorders. This group of conditions affects the kidneys’ ability to eliminate or reabsorb water and a variety of minerals and nutrients that are essential to growth and health.
Some renal tubular disorders cause a buildup of certain minerals or nutrients. Others result in a loss of minerals, nutrients, or water. Without careful management, children with renal tubular disorders can have problems with urination, growth, muscle function, and overall health.
Treatment at NYU Langone
Treatment often includes medication to restore the proper balance of minerals, water, and nutrients in the blood and urine. Doctors may also recommend therapies to prevent or treat complications, such as kidney stones.
