Although most people don't know exactly what uremia is, they know that uremia is serious. Will all kidney disease develop into uremia? What can be done to prevent the development of the disease?
Renal insufficiency occurs as nephropathy progresses (usually as a result of elevated serum creatinine, so blood creatinine levels are used clinically to indicate the stage of development of nephropathy:
Serum creatinine < 133μmol / L: inflammatory reaction period. The symptoms were mainly urinary protein, occult blood, edema and hyperlipidemia in some patients with a large amount of urine protein. The treatment at this stage was to eliminate edema, urine protein, and occult blood in urine.
177 < serum creatinine ≤ 133: renal function compensatory period. The symptoms did not change obviously, the patients themselves did not feel obviously, usually need to do renal function examination to find out. The treatment of this stage is still to eliminate edema, urine protein, urine occult blood, the main treatment is to eliminate edema, urine protein, urine occult blood, But generally will increase the urine poison Qing, love C.R. Sitter and other drugs to reduce blood creatinine.
442 ≤ serum creatinine ≤ 178: phase of renal decompensation. In addition to urine protein, urine occult blood, anemia, heart failure, hypertension and other symptoms usually occur because of the increasing number of toxins in the blood. Treatment at this stage has focused on cardiovascular problems, such as anemia, heart failure, high blood pressure, urine protein and occult blood.
707 ≤ serum creatinine ≤ 443: stage of renal failure. There will be more obvious clinical symptoms at this stage, because anemia, heart failure, hypertension and so on are all aggravated, leading to the rapid deterioration of the patient's physical condition. There is not much change in treatment. Some patients with acute progression have even begun temporary dialysis.
Serum creatinine ≥ 708: uremia, the end stage of nephropathy. At this time, the concentration of toxins in the blood is already very high, anemia, heart failure, hypertension and other complications become more serious. The focus of treatment at this stage is to purify the blood. The main means is dialysis.
Kidney disease, like aging, is an irreversible process, human beings have not found any way to "reverse" kidney disease. However! Kidney disease, like aging, can delay progress.
Simply put, we see many people realize "reverse growth", that is, the appearance and age of serious mismatch, known as "frozen age", is the realization of the age of "reversal"? Is not, but has delayed the body aging speed. The kidney disease progress speed is also possible to delay!
