Can Renal Atrophy in Stage 4 Kidney Disease Be Reversed

2014-02-11 10:49

Renal atrophy refers to kidney shrinkage in size. When kidneys diminish in size, they will fail to function adequately. How to reverse renal atrophy is a big concern for the patients. Can renal atrophy in stage 4 kidney disease be reversed?

Renal atrophy in stage 4 kidney disease

Nephrons are the basic functional units of kidneys. Every kidney is composed of around one million nephrons. A variety of diseases and conditions can affect the nephrons in an adverse way. The impaired nephrons can become impaired and even scarred. Hence, renal atrophy will result.

When kidneys reduce in size, they will fail to function adequately. As a result, a myriad of discomforts and symptoms will result like edema, heart disease, fatigue and so forth.

Can renal atrophy be reversed in stage 4 kidney disease?

It is not possible to reverse the atrophic kidney to a normal size. This is because no treatment can repair the necrotic nephrons. However, if an effective treatment can be applied, the impaired nephrons can be repaired. If so, the size of the shrunk kidneys will be elevated to some extent.

However, the conventional treatments only can relieve the symptoms of stage 4 kidney disease, but can not reverse kidney damage at all.

To increase the size of atrophic kidneys in stage 4 kidney disease, a treatment should be applied to restore the impaired kidney tissues and cells. If the number of well-functioning nephrons can increase, the kidneys will increase in size.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy is an effective treatment for renal atrophy in stage 4 kidney disease. This therapy can stimulate the self-repairing of impaired kidney tissues and cells. Once the impaired nephrons are restored, the size of atrophic kidneys will be increased. The kidneys will certainly function better.
