Topics: CKD Kidney Shrinkage

Details: Hello, I'm a CKD stage3 patient and got it diagnosed couple of months before. And my latest medical report shows kidney scarring, but normal kidney size. What does it mean?

Expert Answer

For your renal scarring, it is a chronic progressing disease. This means your glomerulus are sclerosing and your renal fibrosis has started and keep progressing. The size of your kidneys show your kidneys have not shrinked, this means the sclerosis is not seriously progressing.

Please do not worry, your present condition still in the reversible stage, timely treatment is strongly suggested. If without timely treatment, the condition will worsen, more glomerulus will necrosis. If let it go on to the stage 4 CKD even stage 5 CKD, it will be difficult to reverse.
