Why Kidney Disease Is A Long Lasting DiseaseKidney disease is a long lasting disease. Treatment cost for kidney disease is very high and ordinary families cannot afford long-term treatment. If left it untreated, it will develop to uremia. At this time, it is more difficult to cure it. In the following sections, we will introduce the reasons for kidney disease long lasting disease.

Why kidney disease is a long lasting disease?

To explain this question, we need first to know the causes of kidney disease.

Modern medicine found out that since viruses and bacteria invade your body, it will produce many immune complexes in your body so that blood will be polluted. This will cause inflammatory reaction or abnormal hyperplasia in your kidneys. This is the cause of kidney disease.

Simply speaking, the causes of kidney disease include two aspects:

On one hand, immune complexes lead to blood purified.

On the other hand, immune complexes depositing in kidneys cause kidney damage.

Thus, the treatment for kidney disease should start from these two aspects, otherwise kidney disease will be a long lasting kidney disease.

What treatments are used for kidney disease?

Steroids are medications to prevent immune inflammatory reaction and block inflammatory reaction in kidneys so as to achieve the purpose of eliminating urine protein and occult blood. However, steroids cannot cleanse immune complexes so there are still lots of immune complexes which are depositing in kidneys. Once steroid dosage is reduced, immune inflammatory reaction will appear again. That is, immune inflammatory reaction relapses again.

Dialysis is a good way to remove immune complexes in blood but it only works for small molecular substances like creatinine. It has a little effect on middle and large molecules. Besides, dialysis merely removes immune complexes but cannot stop their regeneration. Therefore, it is necessary to take long term dialysis. This is also called dependency. What’s worse, long term dialysis will speed up kidney shrinkage. At last, kidney transplant is the only way.

Lowering blood pressure, lowering blood sugar, preventing anticoagulation and diuresis detumescence only alleviate symptoms of kidney disease.

This shows that the reason for a long lasting kidney disease is the treatment which is not correct. Therefore, if we want to treat kidney disease, the treatment should be correct first. If you need any help, you can consult us online or email to kidneycares@hotmail.com. We are here to help you.
