Difficult to say without evaluation.  

One consideration would be ureteral reflux.  A VCUG can be considered if suspected, especially if this is association with a urinary tract infection.  

I would also consider an ultrasound of the kidney to rule out any enlargement of the kidneys due to blockages.

Blood tests to evaluate for any signs of dehydration - leading to kidney dysfunction - can also be considered as well.

These options can be discussed with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
