My daughter (18) has not produced more than 50 mls of urine

This answer was rated:

My daughter (18) has not produced more than 50 mls of urine a day for the last three days. She has been on lansoprazole for gastritis For 12 days. The side effects note says it may cause acute interstitial nephritis. took her to A&E (away from home) and they scanned her yesterday- there is no urine building up in her bladder. She has just seen a gastroenterologist who seemed unconcerned and has suggested an MRI should be scheduled. My question is - how acute an issue is this? Can we afford to wait?
JA: Is the condition chronic, or acute?
Customer: acute
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Daughter has had a slipped disc in the past

Hello! My name is Dr.Ehtisham. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Have they done kidney function test and a urinalysis as well?

As far as I know the urine analysis was fine yesterday at A&E. No idea regarding kidney function test I’m afraid

How much fluid is she drinking?

Regards

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
In the last 24 hours 8 glasses of water/squash

Thanks for the details

I think she should have an urgent evaluation

This can be an acute renal failure

She should have renal function tests and urinary electrolytes and creatinine

Also a urinary protein/creatinine ratio must be done along with a renal ultrasound

She should drink plenty of fluids to keep her hydrated in the meanwhile

Please do let me know if you have any other question
