Can Dialysis Cure Renal Atrophy

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-03-03 09:03


Renal atrophy refers to kidneys diminishing in size. The smaller kidneys can not function normally, thus leading to high buildup of waste products in blood and a large number of complications. When the atrophic kidneys fail to function, dialysis will be prescribed. Can dialysis cure renal atrophy?

Renal atrophy

Nephrons are the basic functional units of kidneys. Each kidney contain around one million nephrons which are composed of glomeruli and renal tubule. In right condition, these nephrons can maintain the normal size and function of kidneys.

In right condition, a certain amount of blood flows through nephrons, where the waste products are filtered out from body. Meanwhile, the blood can provide enough nutrients and oxygen to the nephrons.

However, a variety of diseases and conditions can affect the nephrons adversely like reduced blood supply to nephrons, Diabetes, high blood pressure, systemic disease and so forth.

When the nephrons are affected adversely, without active treatment, they will become scarred and even necrotic. Renal atrophy will result eventually.

Can dialysis cure renal atrophy?

Dialysis is a process, in which the blood is filtered by a machine or abdominal membrane. It can take over a partial renal function to keep the patients alive. However, it can not cure renal atrophy at all. With the extending of dialysis treatment, the kidneys will continue to shrink. Even no urine is produced, Kidney Transplant will be the only option treatment. Therefore, it is important for the patients with renal atrophy to seek for a treatment early enough.

A replacement treatment to dialysis is recommended here called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can not only can preserve renal function, but also can enhance the self-healing ability of the body. If the impaired nephrons can be reversed, the size of kidneys will increase and renal function will be improved fundamentally.
