Prognosis of Stage 5 CKD Caused by Chronic Glomerulonephritis

2013-03-15 16:44

Chronic glomerulonephritis is a major cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in clinic. What is the prognosis of stage 5 CKD caused by chronic glomerulonephritis? It is affected by variables.

Chronic glomerulonephritis is a progressive kidney disorder characterized by inflammation of kidneys. As the filtering units of kidneys are inflamed and impaired, it will lead to a myriad of symptoms, such as proteinuria, hematuria, swelling, high blood pressure etc.If CKD in chronic glomerulonephritis is not controlled early, more and more kidney tissues will become sclerotic and necrotic gradually.Eventually, the patients develop stage 5 CKD and have to start dialysis or do a Kidney Transplant.

However, the good news is that some treatment tips can help improve the prognosis of stage 5 CKD caused by glomerulonephritis.

Firstly, diet is considered to be an important part in the treatment of stage 5 CKD. A balanced diet can reduce strain on kidneys and improve overall health as well as delay the onset of dialysis.

Secondly, proteinuria and high blood pressure are two important risk factors in worsening renal function. Keeping these two factors under control can slow the disease progression.

Additionally, it is widely known that most of the patients with Kidney Failure die of its complications not the disease itself. Cardiovascular disease is a significant death cause for people with stage 5 CKD.

Thirdly,treatment is the most important factor in determining the prognosis of stage 5 CKD caused by chronic glomerulonephritis. If no aggressive treatment, the inevitable result is dialysis or kidney transplant. However, if the patients can have treatments to restore their impaired kidney structure, they will be able to live a normal and full life. These are two different outcomes.

The above are the possible factors which can affect the prognosis of stage 5 CKD caused by chronic glomerulonephritis. If you would like to know the treatment of glomerulonephritis, please consult us on line directly.
