Kidney disease often goes undetected in the general population, but children and adolescents are at an even greater risk due to the nature of the causes of the diseases and the ambiguity of the symptoms.
In adults, 90% of cases are related to glomerular based renal disease caused by diabetes, hypertension and glomerulonephritis, which cues physicians to suspect kidney disease.
In children, 70% of CKD is associated with tubulointerstitial disease and lack the obvious symptoms such as hematuria (red blood cells in the urine), hypertension (high blood pressure) or edema (swelling). (1)
Adding to this difficulty, children might not be aware of some of the changes that are impacting their body and will not always let their parents know of potential issues.
Common symptoms for children are:
Swelling (even mild) of the hands and feet and/or puffiness around the eyes caused by excess fluid build-up, to the point where the child’s ability to move around normally is compromised
After initial swelling, socks or a belt can leave an indentation in the skin that will persist
Lack of or decrease in appetite.
In children with ESRD it is especially important to keep their appetite up because transplant eligibility is based partially on growth.

Radiation damage to tissue and/or organs depends on the dose of radiation received, or the absorbed dose which is expressed in a unit called the gray (Gy). The potential damage from an absorbed dose depends on the type of radiation and the sensitivity of different tissues and organs.
The effective dose is used to measure ionizing radiation in terms of the potential for causing harm. The sievert (Sv) is the unit of effective dose that takes into account the type of radiation and sensitivity of tissues and organs. It is a way to measure ionizing radiation in terms of the potential for causing harm. The Sv takes into account the type of radiation and sensitivity of tissues and organs.
The Sv is a very large unit so it is more practical to use smaller units such as millisieverts (mSv) or microsieverts (μSv). There are one thousand μSv in one mSv, and one thousand mSv in one Sv. In addition to the amount of radiation (dose), it is often useful to express the rate at which this dose is delivered (dose rate), such as microsieverts per hour (μSv/hour) or millisievert per year (mSv/year).
Beyond certain thresholds, radiation can impair the functioning of tissues and/or organs and can produce acute effects such as skin redness, hair loss, radiation burns, or acute radiation syndrome. These effects are more severe at higher doses and higher dose rates. For instance, the dose threshold for acute radiation syndrome is about 1 Sv (1000 mSv).
If the radiation dose is low and/or it is delivered over a long period of time (low dose rate), the risk is substantially lower because there is a greater likelihood of repairing the damage. There is still a risk of long-term effects such as cancer, however, that may appear years or even decades later. Effects of this type will not always occur, but their likelihood is proportional to the radiation dose. This risk is higher for children and adolescents, as they are significantly more sensitive to radiation exposure than adults.

A Young Girl's Poems
About Death, Life & Adolescence
SONYA TUPONE LLOYD
This personal collection of poetic verse is at once inspiring and challenging. Beginnng with the loss of her mother at age nine, Sonya began collecting her thoughts in 40 poems in a diary from early childhood through her twenties.

With the death of her mother, Sonya lost a part of everything she had known. Two states away, she finds herself with a different family, school, friends, home and a new name. The verses written during this time are one woman s exploration of her raw, emotional responses to dramatic life changes. This is Sonya's story.

Physical Aspects of Puberty, a sex-education film, details the different developing sex characteristics and emotional upheavals of the “in-between period of adolescence.” Using animated diagrams as well as live action, the film shows Johnny and Janey as they suffer through body hair growth, uneven physical development, changes in appetite and brain cells, blemishes, and a fluctuating endocrine system. It even discusses the emotional effects of adolescence, including mood swings, and a tendency to be overly emotional.
Act Your Age is a fantastic vintage social guidance film full of campy moments, ludicrous characters, and unintentional comedy. Jim, a disruptive adolescent, gets a lecture from the principal about the “infantile reactions” of teens who are struggling to mature. While Jim is serving his punishment, he flashes back to times when he witnessed his friends succumbing to tantrums or “acting like babies.” The behavior of these kids and the ways in which it was considered objectionable are sidesplitting. With the help of family, and school officials, Jim devises a bizarre “How Old Am I?” chart which allows him to assess his own maturity, personality, and ability to work out his own problems. Act Your Age soars with kookiness and a bit of timeless advice for adolescents.
