The sodium-potassium pump does not function as well as usual. The level of potassium falls within the cells, followed by anxiety that the cells may die. The newborn cries.

Moreover, in some cases the child will not be able to pass urine at all. Some of the children will scream before passing urine, others will tell they have no urge to go to the toilet. It is possible that the quantity of fluids they drink doesn’t change during the day but there is only but little micturition.
