Kidney atrophic is a pathological anatomical term, that is to say, atrophy of the kidney, decreased volume, is also called end-stage renal disease. At this time the glomerular renal tubules (that is, nephron) has been largely or all destroyed, the kidneys have lost their physiological function. Renal atrophy generally occurs left renal atrophy, right kidney atrophy and renal atrophy symptoms. Next to give you a brief introduction about how to treat kidney atrophy!
Kidney atrophy treatment focus: repair damaged kidney tissue, restore kidney function, prevent the progress of renal fibrosis, blocking the kidneys continue to shrink. The specific principles of treatment are: to promote myofibroblast apoptosis and immune complex phagocytosis. Reduce the synthesis of ECM to increase its degradation, renal damage to the organization may also be part of the repair, renal function can also be gradually restored, myofibroblasts and immune complex apoptosis, blocking its continued synthesis and secretion by ECM , Increase the renal degrading enzyme production, enhance its degradation of ECM activity, reduce ECM damage to kidney tissue, and gradually reverse the damaged kidney function.
For the treatment of renal atrophy generally have the following measures: alcohol and tobacco must be removed, but also pay attention to rest. If unilateral renal atrophy, can be considered surgical resection. Creatinine increased, can be resolved through dialysis, control of protein food intake and so on. Renal atrophy for many reasons, including a variety of disease factors such as various kidney disease, renal vascular disease, kidney trauma and other effective treatment can cause kidney atrophy, simply say that the development of various kidney disease are the process of constant fibrosis of the kidneys, the final performance of the kidneys atrophy, shrink, the proposed anti-fibrosis treatment.
