Can Kidney Shrinkage Be Reversed in ESRD

2014-02-27 06:55

When people with ESRD do B-ultrasound, the test result may reveal that their kidneys diminish in size seriously. The patients with kidney shrinkage often experience a host of discomforts and even death. Can kidney shrinkage be reversed in ESRD? Read on to get the answer.

Kidney shrinkage in ESRD

Nephrons are the basic functional units of kidneys. Each kidney has about a million nephrons. In nephrons, glomeruli act as filtering units, allowing extra fluid and wastes to pass through.

However, a variety of diseases and conditions can affect nephrons in an adverse way like Diabetes, high blood pressure, obstruction of urine flow and so on. When the nephrons get impaired, they will not get adequate blood and oxygen supply. As a result, the kidney tissues and cells will become scarred and even necrotic. The scarring and necrosis of kidney tissues and cells will lead to kidney shrinkage in ESRD.

When kidneys diminish in size, high levels of waste products will build up in body. Multiple body organs and systems will be affected by such a high level of waste products in body.

How to reverse kidney shrinkage in ESRD?

It is not possible to reverse the diminished kidneys to the normal size of kidneys. However, if an aggressive treatment can be applied, the patients will still be able to return to a normal life.

To increase the size of shrunk kidneys, the patients with ESRD should have a treatment to restore the impaired nephrons. If the number of well-functioning nephrons can increase, the kidneys will increase in size.

Blood Purification and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be the recommended treatments. These two treatments can function together to purify the blood and restore the impaired nephrons. If the shrunk kidneys can increase in size, they will function more efficiently. Thereby, the patients with ESRD will return to a normal and high-quality life.
