Diagnosis and Testing
There are many factors to consider when assessing a child who has formed a urinary tract stone. Factors include genetics, environment, diet, body weight and fluid intake. For example, more than 35 percent of people with kidney stones who have high urine calcium also have an inherited disease.
If your child has symptoms of kidney stones, an evaluation of your child will include a personal history and physical, and a family history.
Additional evaluation includes radiology, metabolic, genetic and dietary testing.
