Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders
High Bun Creatinine Ratio in 6 Year Old
My 6 yr old has had chronic rhinitis since birth- had cholesteatoma in his right ear due to retraction pocket formation- detected at 5 yrs of age- even after surgery-ear severly retracted-lymph nodes on neck chronically inflammed- they do go down in size. bun-creatinine ratio-51.3,urea nitrogen 20,sgpt (alt)29,mcv 77.4, mchc35.4,rest normal-where should i take him
With symptoms of chronic rhinitis and continued ear problems that in part are related to eustachian tube problems, I suggest you have your child evaluated by an allergist.
