You Have The Last Chance To Reverse Your Kidney Disease

2018-08-21 10:32

You Have The Last Chance To Reverse Your Kidney DiseaseIn some cases, it is possible for you to reverse your condition. But if you miss the time, you will suffer from uremia. How to prevent uremia?

Uremia can be avoided but it is difficult.

Uremia usually comes from chronic kidney disease and patients usually go through such a process:

Proteinuria and blood in urine occur.

Nephrotic syndrome/nephritis syndrome

Elevated creatinine level/ kidney failure

Uremia-dialysis

In terms of the stage of chronic kidney disease, the course of chronic kidney disease is:

Stage 1: glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is normal (above 90), normal creatinine level and kidney inflammation;

Stage 2: GFR is 60-89. Creatinine level is high but below 177umol/L. More kidney cells are necrosis and the remaining kidney units begin to compensate;

Stage 3: GFR is 30-59 and creatinine level is 186-442umol/L. Symptoms begin to occur such as high blood pressure, anemia, fatigue and electrolyte disturbance;

Stage 4: GFR is 15-29 and creatinine level is 443-707umol/L. Symptoms become severe. Heart failure, acidosis and other severe complications occur.

Stage 5: GFR is below 15 and creatinine level is above 707umol/L. Patients are suggested to prepare dialysis.

Among these 5 stages, stage 1 and 2 kidney disease is reversible. It can be cured clinically and patients can regain health. Stage 4 and 5 is not reversible and life quality can be improved through medical measures.

Stage 3 kidney disease is a watershed. If patients in this stage can get correct treatment and maintain healthy living habits, uremia can be avoided. However, if you do not get correct treatment and your lifestyle is not healthy, it is difficult for you to avoid uremia.

How to know if you have a risk for uremia?

1. Edema of eyelids and face, pitting edema of the lower limb

2. You are easy to get tired. After your rest, it can be relieved but you still feel discomfort.

3. Blood pressure increases suddenly

4. Unknown poor appetite, nausea or vomiting

5. Bubbles are in urine. Tests show abnormal urine including proteinuria and blood in urine.

If you have the above symptoms and are also diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, you need to be hospitalized and accept formal diagnosis and treatment. Besides, you should quit smoking and alcohol, follow a light diet, and avoid renal toxic medicines.
