What Is Renal Parenchymal Disease

What Is Renal Parenchymal DiseaseKidney consists of renal parenchyma and renal pelvis, while renal parenchyma consists of renal medulla and renal cortex. Thereby, renal parenchymal disease means there are impairments in medullar area and cortical area.

Common renal parenchymal disease includes glomerular diseases, chronic interstitial nephritis, polycystic kidney disease, and so on. Besides, some diseases are easy to cause the formation of renal parenchymal disease, such as lupus erythematosus, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.

In fact, many factors are able to cause renal parenchymal diseases, like infection, toxins, abuse and improper intake of drugs, etc. But no matter what the causes are, renal parenchymal disease is defined by the scarring of kidney, and that is a gradual process of renal fibrosis and patients may have kidney failure in the end.

Renal parenchyma completes the major work of kidney. Thereby, when this part is damaged, many disorders will appear, which can cause various symptoms around their body. For example, patients who have renal parenchymal disease often have hypertension, which can also aggravate patients’ condition. Another common symptom often appears in patients with renal parenchymal disease is protein urine, and this may cause patients to have foamy urine. Patients are also likely to have edema, which is mainly caused by the great loss of protein and the retention of sodium and water. Besides, patients are also likely to have symptoms like proteinuria, hematuria, fatigue, nauseas and vomiting, and so on.

Renal parenchymal disease is severe, and patients should treat their condition seriously, or their condition may progress into kidney failure, which is hard to controlled and there may be no method to cure.

To control their condition and stop the progression of renal parenchymal disease, patients should change their life habits and diet, which can have a significant influence on their health condition. Besides, patients should cooperate with their treatment positively, and it is important for them to keep a good emotion in their life.
