Kidney Size Is 6.7cm: How to Reverse it

2014-03-14 07:58

The size of kidney is a valuable parameter in measuring how well your kidneys are functioning. The normal kidney size of an adult human is about 9 to 13cm long and about 5 to 7.5 cm wide. When kidney diminishes in size, it will become less unable to perform their functions. When kidney size decreases to 6.7 cm, can it be reversed?

What does it mean with kidney size 6.7cm?

Nephrons are the basic structural units of kidneys and they are mainly composed of glomeruli and renal tubules. Each kidney is composed of around one million nephrons. A variety of diseases and conditions can affect nephrons in an adverse way, leading to scarring and necrosis of nephrons. When the number of healthy nephrons declines, it will cause kidney shrinkage.

When kidney size decreases to 6.7cm, the filtering area of kidneys becomes much smaller. As a result, high levels of waste products and toxins will build up in body. These harmful substances will affect multiple body organs and systems, leading to a large number of complications.

While it can not reverse the small kidney to a normal size, it is possible to increase the size of kidney and improve its function.

How to reverse a kidney with size 6.7 cm?

The first treatment step is to find out the cause of damage to nephrons and control it effectively. This can slow down the kidney size from declining to some extent.

To reverse the small size, the best way is to restore the impaired nephrons. If the number of healthy functioning nephrons can increase, the kidney size will be increased fundamentally. If the kidney size can become bigger, it will function more efficiently to filter blood.
