How is hemolytic uremic syndrome diagnosed?

In addition to a complete medical history and physical examination, diagnostic procedures for hemolytic may include:

  • Blood tests - to check blood cell counts, electrolytes and kidney function
  • Urine tests - to check for blood and protein
  • Stool tests - to check for blood
  • Abdominal x-ray - a diagnostic test which uses invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones, and organs onto film.
