Treatment for Shrinking Kidneys in ESRD

2014-02-13 16:53

When kidneys shrink in size, they will fail to function adequately. In most cases of ESRD, kidneys shrink to a very small size. What is the treatment for shrinking kidneys in ESRD?

Shrinking kidneys in ESRD

Nephrons are the basic functional units of kidneys. Every kidney is composed of around one million nephrons. These nephrons form the basic structure of kidneys and can help filter out waste products and fluid from body.

However, a variety of diseases and conditions can affect nephrons adversely. The impaired nephrons will become scarred and necrotic progressively. In ESRD, nearly all nephrons are involved, thus resulting in shrinking kidneys.

Treatment for shrinking kidneys in ESRD

Dialysis is a common treatment option for people with ESRD. It can help eliminate waste products to keep the patients alive. However, it can not cure ESRD at all.

Kidney transplant can help the patients recover renal function. However, it is hard to get a matched kidney donor. What’s worse, the patients will encounter a large number of complications.

Shrinking kidneys result from impairment and loss of nephrons in kidneys. Therefore, to treat ESRD with shrinking kidneys, the patients should have a treatment to reverse the impaired nephrons. If they can be repaired, the kidneys will increase in size and also will function better.

Blood Purification and Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy are effective treatments for ESRD with shrinking kidneys. Blood purification can clear up all kinds of waste products from blood. It not only can relieve symptoms of ESRD, but also can create a favorable environment for repairing the impaired nephrons.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy can stimulate the self-repairing of kidney tissues and cells. If the impaired nephrons can be reversed, kidneys will increase in size fundamentally.
