NIDDK publishes new resources about urologic and kidney disorders
Date:8/1/2008

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has published several new resources to help people learn more about urologic and kidney disorders. These disorders are among the most critical health problems in the United States, affecting millions of Americans, including children and young adults. The publications address interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS), urinary tract infections (UTIs) in children, prostatitis, IgA nephropathy, and home hemodialysis.

What I need to know about Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome. People with IC/PBS usually have pain when the bladder fills and empties. Although the pain might disappear for weeks or even months, it then returns. Finding a proper diagnosis for IC/PBS can be frustrating because symptoms can resemble those of other conditions. The NIDDK's booklet helps people understand the difference between IC/PBS and other sources of bladder pain. The resource also explains the tests and treatments for IC/PBS, including bladder retraining, physical therapy, physical activity, stress reduction, medication, bladder stretching, nerve stimulation, and surgery. For an online version of this booklet, go to www.kidney.niddk.nih.gov/kudiseases/pubs/interstitialcystitis_ez.

What I need to know about My Child's Urinary Tract Infection. UTIs affect about 3 percent of children in the United States annually. Throughout childhood, the risk of having a UTI is 2 percent for boys and 8 percent for girls. UTIs account for more than 1 million visits to pediatricians' offices each year. This easy-to-read booklet explains the symptoms of UTIs, how doctors diagnose and treat them, and how to prevent them. Symptoms of UTIs are not always obvious to parents, and younger children are usually unable to describe how they feel
