From Arkansas, USA:

My eight year old daughter, who has type 1 diabetes, is recovering from a kidney infection, and the pediatrician has scheduled an ultrasound. This is the first kidney infection she has experienced, and she has never complained of any pain or other symptoms. Is the doctor looking for something specific? Just being cautious?


It's pretty standard to do an ultrasound for kidney infections.
