Treatment for Kidney Shrinkage in Stage 5 Kidney Failure

2014-03-04 06:53

Kidney shrinkage or kidney atrophy is a condition, where the kidneys are smaller than normal. This condition is commonly seen in stage 5 kidney failure. What is the treatment for kidney shrinkage in stage 5 kidney failure?

Kidney shrinkage in stage 5 kidney failure

Nephrons are the structural and functional units of kidneys including glomeruli and renal tubules. Each kidney is composed of around one million nephrons. These nephrons maintain the basic kidney structure and function.

However, a variety of diseases and conditions can affect the nephrons adversely. Without active treatment, the nephrons will become scarred and necrotic. As a result, the kidneys will shrink.

In stage 5 kidney failure, most of the nephrons become involved. In most cases, the kidneys shrink to a very small size.

Treatment for kidney shrinkage in stage 5 Kidney Failure

As kidneys decline to a very small size, high levels of toxins and metabolic waste products will build up in body. These harmful substances will cause damage to multiple body organs and systems.

To treat kidney shrinkage in stage 5 kidney failure, the first step is to clear off the waste products from blood. This not only can reduce strain on kidneys and other body organs and systems, but also can create a favorable environment for restoring the impaired kidney structure. Blood Purification is a recommended treatment method in this treatment process.

To restore the impaired nephrons, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be applied. This therapy is an external application of Chinese herbal medicines. The effective medicines not only can provide nutrients to the impaired kidneys, but also can activate the self-healing system of the body. If the kidney tissues and cells can be regenerated, the shrunk kidney will increase in size. Meanwhile, the kidneys will function more efficiently.
