Kidney diseases of children and adolescents under 16 are studied and treated at the paediatric kidney clinic.

Prevention and treatment of kidney diseases often require regular laboratory and outpatient clinic check-ups, which are organized according to the patient's needs and the clinical picture.

Nephrological diseases are

  • Finnish-type nephrosis
  • nephrotic syndrome and haematuria
  • congenital kidney defects
  • genetic polycystic kidney diseases
  • nephritides
  • children's elevated blood pressure study and treatment are also centralised here.

Monitoring and treatment of a child undergoing dialysis is also part of our activities. We prevent and treat malnutrition related to kidney diseases together with a nutritionist.

You need a doctor's referral to be admitted.

We are a part of Tyks Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
