Stage 5 kidney failure with atrophic kidney

Nephrons are the basic functional units in kidneys.Every kidney is composed of one million nephrons.However,a variety of diseases and conditions can affect nephrons in an adverse way. When nephrons decrease in number,it will cause atrophic kidney. In most cases of stage 5 kidney failure,the kidneys shrink very significantly.A large number of complications and discomforts often occur in stage 5 kidney failure like nausea and vomiting, swelling, high blood pressure etc.

Treatment for stage 5 Kidney Failure with atrophic kidney

To treat stage 5 kidney failure with atrophic kidney,the patients should have a treatment to repair the impaired nephrons and increase the number of nephrons in kidneys.In the whole treatment process,there are mainly three treatment processes.Firstly,it is to eliminate the waste products from body to purify blood.Secondly,it is to restore the impaired nephrons.If the impaired nephrons can be restored,the atrophic kidney will increase in size.Blood Purification and stem cell therapy will be recommended to treat stage 5 kidney failure.

Blood purification is a nonspecific treatment method.It refers to a group of methods for eliminating waste products from body. Based on kidney damage degree and the types of waste products in blood,different types of blood purification methods will be applied.Hence,it can create a clear and favorable environment for repairing the nephrons.

Stem Cell Therapy can increase the size of atrophic kidney by restoring the impaired nephrons.Stem cells are a group of immature cells.In right condition,they can differentiate into new cells to replace the impaired and necrotic renal cells. If so, the impaired nephrons will be restored. When the number of nephrons increase, the atrophic kidney will increase in size.
