Enuresis, hematuria and proteinuria are common pediatric kidney disorders, but the when do these problems warrant a referral to a pediatric nephrologist? What red flag symptoms require more urgent consultation and evaluation? New specialty-specific guidelines from the "Choosing Wisely" campaign were just released for pediatric nephrology in an effort to educate about unnecessary medical tests, treatments and procedures. In this podcast, Darcy Weidemann, MD, pediatric nephrologist at Children's Mercy Kansas City, discusses evaluation and management options primary care providers should consider prior to subspecialty referral.
