Details: My doctor just said I have kidney shrinkage. What does it mean? Also, I got blood in urine and pain in my back which last couple days. Are they dangerous?

Expert Answer

Kidney shrinkage means various conditions cause nephrons to loss or lack of blood into kidneys. Finally, kidneys become smaller and smaller. We call it kidney shrinkage which is common in end stage renal disease (ESRD), renal artery stenosis, renal dysplasia, and so on. If kidneys are shrunk severely, patients will have more and more symptoms and complications.

Back pain and blood in urine are typical signs of kidney shrinkage. Both of them are caused by impaired glomeruli or urinary tract infections. If left alone, patients’ illness condition may become worse and worse. Thereby, patients should take action to control their kidney problem timely.

In our hospital, we mainly use the combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine to treat kidney disease. Western medicine is usually taken to ease patients’ complications and symptoms, while Chinese medicine is applied to reverse kidney damage and make damaged kidney cells refresh again.
