My son, now 5 years old was diagnosed with Hydronephrosis in both kidneys before birth. He was monitored for 2 years and was released of urology and nephrologist but the past few weeks he’s showed high blood pressure, very metallic smelling hair and breath. He has been wetting his bed at night and cannot seem to stop sweating and drinking excessive water. Should I get a lab work up?

I suggest that you consult with your son’s pediatrician for an examination.  Laboratory testing may be needed but a good examination by his pediatrician will be important to make sure the proper tests are performed.
