Does Shrunken Kidney Mean Kidney FailureSome patients may wonder whether shrunken kidney means kidney failure or not, today I will give you the answer. Shrunken kidney or kidney shrinkage means your kidney is smaller than the normal size. Generally speaking, kidney becomes smaller when you grow older and older. Here kidney shrinkage does not refer to the natural physiological change with the time, but a pathological process caused by many reasons.

What causes shrunken kidney?

Kidney shrinkage may result from congenital malformation. But it is more likely that you have suffered from a long time kidney disease which leads to damage to nephron, especially glomerulus. Kidney shrinkage has close relationship with kidney function. When shrinkage appears, your kidney can not work properly to filter these wastes and toxins out of body, resulting in edema, blood urine, nausea, vomiting, fatigue etc.

How to treat shrunken kidney?

When you are diagnosed with kidney disease, B ultrasound is the most convenient and simplest check for shrinking kidneys. This is significant for treating kidney disease. The earlier you discover kidney shrinkage, the better prognosis it is.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a natural therapy with few side effects to improve your kidney function. It can penetrate the essence of Chinese medicine directly into your kidney. These medicine has the functions of deviating blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anticoagulation and degrading cytoplasmic matrix. Through this therapy, the damaged kidneys gradually recover and at the same time kidney shrinkage is stopped.

In fact, kidney shrinkage occurs, when you are in CKD stage 4, Diabetic Nephropathy, or Hypertensive Nephropathy. If you leave it uncontrolled, your illness will develop to kidney failure. At that time, you have to live with dialysis or have a kidney transplant.
