Is It A Cause for Concern that Kidneys Have Become Small

Is It A Cause for Concern that Kidneys Have Become SmallYou should take it seriously if your kidneys have become small. This is because kidney shrinkage is usually one typical sign of end stage renal disease or kidney failure. When kidney functioning cells or tissues become damaged or even necrotic, the kidney size will become smaller and smaller. If untreated timely, dialysis or kidney transplant will be the only choices.

Kidney structure

Kidneys consist of renal parenchyma and renal pelvis, and renal parenchyma consists of renal cortex and renal medulla. There are more than one million of nephrons are located in renal cortex, and glomerulus and renal tubule forms nephron. The healthy nephrons make sure kidneys can work normally.

Why do kidneys become small?

How to stop kidneys from being smaller?

The treatment should begin from controlling the underlying cause. If it is caused by diabetes, try to keep your blood sugar level under control. Different causes need different managements, so you can tell the doctor online the causes of your kidney problem, so they can help you deal with it.

Then, the thing we should do urgently is to restore damaged kidney cells and protect the remaining kidney functioning nephrons. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is one great innovation of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and it is applied externally.
