2013-11-28 13:39

Kidney atrophy refers to shrinkage of kidneys in size.It is a common result of long-term kidney disease. Can kidney atrophy develop into ESRD?

Kidney atrophy

Nephrons are the basic functional units in kidneys.Every kidney is composed of around one million of nephrons.Any condition and disease which can affect kidneys in a negative way will result in loss of healthy nephrons.Loss of nephrons can result in kidney atrophy.

Another cause of kidney atrophy is reduced blood supply to kidneys.When blood flows through kidneys,it can provide abundant nutrients and oxygen to nephrons to keep them function well.However, when any condition affects normal blood flow through kidneys,it can cause renal ischemia and anoxia. Then renal ischemia and anoxia can cause nephrons to become scarred and even necrotic. Consequently, kidney shrinkage will be the result.

Can kidney atrophy develop into ESRD?

As more and more nephrons become scarred and necrotic, it will result in ESRD.Therefore,to prevent kidney atrophy from developing into ESRD,an aggressive treatment should be adopted.

When nephrons become impaired,they will attract inflammatory response in kidneys.The inflammation can cause the fibrosis and scarring of nephrons.To stop this process,anti-inflammation treatment is an important treatment part to revere kidney atrophy and avoid ESRD.

Another important treatment part is to repair the impaired nephrons and increase the number of healthy nephrons. Kidneys will increase in size and renal function will be enhanced.

To attain the above treatment goals,Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy will be recommended to the patients with kidney atrophy.

Micro-Chinese medicines have anti-inflammation feature and can suppress the inflammatory response in kidneys. If so, it can stop further scarring of nephrons.

In addition,the effective Chinese medicine ingredients can stimulate the self-repairing of kidney tissues. When the number of healthy nephrons increases, the kidneys will increase in size and also will function more efficiently. If so, ESRD will be prevented in kidney atrophy completely.
