5-month Baby Pee Accompanied By Orange Powder?
I want to ask, my daughter entered 5 months in the diapers just a little and then there was orange powder. My child is ASI. Previously pee normal and filled diapers. I have brought it to the midwife, she said, she doesn’t see the vagina as good and has checked that she doesn’t feel the pain of her child. Why is it like that there is orange powder in her pee?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The existence of complaints of orange powder in diapers and is accompanied by BAK is less likely to be triggered by excessive urine concentration. when your baby's urine concentration is higher, you can find a more concentrated amount of urine or a more concentrated urine color, which triggers the metabolic results of the kidney leaving many crystals or powder in it. By increasing the amount of breast milk intake or milk, it is hoped that your baby's pee volume will increase which ultimately reduces excess crystal discharge in her cheeks. If this complaint does not last long or does not recur and there are no accompanying complaints, then in general this is still within reasonable limits, but still requires periodic checks by your pediatrician.
Several other conditions can also trigger the same complaint, such as:
1. dehydration or lack of fluid intake
4. urate crystals in baby's urine or also called brick dust urine where uric acid concentration increases with high pee concentration / low number of pee. Usually this case often occurs in newborns
5. renal hypouricemia in which uric acid discharges in the body more, so the results of blood tests show very low uric acid in the blood
However, if the volume of your baby's pee or the frequency of your baby's pee decreases or is further reduced, then you should consult directly with your pediatrician. The doctor will conduct a direct examination and plan further examinations to determine the clinical condition of your baby and make sure there are any medical problems that accompany them. The results of the examination will be a reference for your child's evaluation and treatment.
For now, you should still try to maintain a balance of your baby's bodily fluid needs, and if you are currently breastfeeding your baby and currently you often consume foods high in uric acid (such as ducks, soybeans, offal or similar) you should reduce food intake this is especially during the evaluation and observation period as long as this complaint still exists.
So that we can convey.
