My girl with autism recently went to the doctors where we found out she has a autoimmune disorder and that her creatinine and bncr? Level was low or high I don't exactly remember I just know that her doctor said she needs more protein in her diet and needs to drink more water so maybe it was low but it was really low. The thing is my girl drinks only water at least 60 something ounces of water a day cuz she's on a organic diet to help with her autism and seizures and she has a vegan protein shake every morning and she's addicted to peanut butter. So this confused us big time and when we asked the doctor he said the water must not be staying in her and we need to get further testing.

So we looked more into what's going on with her and notice she gets pain in her lower back every now and then, has leg pain, pees frequently especially at night non stop, easily gets dizzy, constantly tired, has problems breathing and sleeping, easily appears nauseous, etc. is it possible she may have kidney disease or problems? Can anybody give me more information. Thanks.

Hello and welcome to the HW forums. Sorry your girls having these issues but no one could possibly make an exact guess as to the cause.

My best advice would be to see a Urologist or Nephrologist and soon to assure there isn't anything major going on.

Any kind of illness or disease process is better treated early out.

Good luck.

Welcome to the forum, it does sound like kidney maybe involved, however it does not mean there is "disease" involved.

Live nverthesame stated only a doctor can tell you after some further testing is done. It sounds like you are doing all the right things for your daughter.

I would call the last doc seen get the count correct then call the urologist and see if this is the correct doctor to see since she is urinating so much.

One step at a time, try not to catastrophy, there could be 1,000 reasons why this is happening. Stay strong.

Peace and courage
