Do you know what kidney atrophy is? What do you know about the cause of renal atrophy? Most of the time tend to be ignored by everyone of these disease, leading to the disease aggravating, missed the best treatment time, early so is also very important for our understanding of the etiology of renal atrophy.
Causes 1: first of all that should be considered after kidney atrophy for congenital renal dysplasia, second consider late for kidney disease, kidney failure, uremia, or some acute problems. Such as: acute glomerular diseases, diabetic nephrosclerosis, kidney transplant rejection, chronic glomerular nephritis, renal cortical necrosis, Alport syndrome, acute tubular necrosis, hypertensive nephrosclerosis.
Etiology 2: the reduction of multiple kidneys or one side of the kidney is the cause of chronic pyelonephritis, a common cause of renal atrophy. Double kidney shrink in general the development of chronic nephropathy renal insufficiency, especially renal failure, uremia, elevated serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen, severe kidney damage and renal parenchymal damage, kidney will narrow. So remind renal atrophy patients must cause attaches great importance to this, kidney disease, occult is very strong, if the glomerular filtration rate below 50%, namely the kidney damage in severe clinical symptoms to produce accordingly. The diagnosis of kidney atrophy must be actively searched for the cause of the disease.
Cause 3: there are two reasons for renal atrophy: renal tuberculosis (unilateral kidney shrink, with the contralateral kidney seeper or compensatory increase), renal artery stenosis and congenital aplasia.
In general, renal atrophy is closely related to kidney disease for a long time, nephron due to kidney diseases, especially glomerular damage, make whole kidney was smaller. Renal atrophy and renal function changes are complementary to each other, when there is kidney atrophy patients are already or will inevitably appear renal dysfunction and renal failure, uremia. It is hoped that the patient with renal atrophy will pay attention to the disease, and make an early and timely examination to eliminate the possibility of kidney failure, so as not to delay the disease.
That is about the common causes of renal atrophy, occurs at the time, we should know about renal atrophy symptoms timely, such ability can be timely grasp the patient. The next treatment is very helpful. I wish you good health.
