Some people find diffuse parenchymal renal disease appear in their test report, but most of them know little about them. Therefore, today, we are here to talk about causes, symptoms and treatments of diffuse parenchymal renal disease.
According to different function and structure, renal tissues are classified into two kinds: renal parenchymal part and renal vascular part. Renal parenchyma are responsible for the guarantee of normal kidney function, because it contains more than one million of nephrons, which consist of glomeruli and renal tubules.
Diffuse parenchymal renal disease occurs when various diseases attack renal parenchyma such as glomerulonephritis, chronic interstitial nephritis, recurrent hematuria, persistent hematuria, etc. As its name indicates, this disease means the region of kidney lesion in renal parenchyma is very wide. Its incidence is quite high, and in severe condition, it may cause kideny failure or uremia.
Because of various causes and patients’ specific condition, symptoms changes from person to person. If your disease is caused by glomerulonephritis, you may have swelling and proteinuria. If diabetes is the primary cause, proteinuria and high blood pressure are more likely to occur. Besides, blood urine, more or less urination, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, etc may also happen in some cases.
If you have diffuse parenchymal renal disease, your treatment should start from a systemic and accurate diagnosis. Then, a well planned treatment including well control of root causes, restoring damaged glomeruli and renal tubules, a healthy diet and moderate exercise is needed. Diffuse parenchymal renal disease progresses chronically, so it is a long process to fight against it.
