Both Kidneys Are Shrunk with Glomerulonephritis

Both Kidneys Are Shrunk with GlomerulonephritisKidneys are excretory organs that are responsible for filtering blood. Glomerulonephritis is one common cause of kidney shrinkage. With the decline of kidney function, both kidneys are shrunk gradually. To prevent end stage kidney failure, patients should take prompt treatments to manage their kidney problem.

Causes of glomerulonephritis

If kidney shrinkage is caused by glomerulonephritis, patients should detect the underlying cause of glomerulonephritis and then take corresponding therapies. According to clinical research, more than 85% of glomerulonephritis cases have a close link with immune disorder. When immune system becomes abnormal, it can’t deal with harmful substances effectively, forming immune complexes. Then, immune complexes build up in the kidneys, inducing inflammatory reactions and kidney damage. With the loss of kidney functioning tissues, kidney size decreases gradually.

Treatments for kidney shrinkage and glomerulonephritis

Since accumulation of immune complexes is the underlying cause, patients should take some therapies to remove these substances and regulate immune system.

Immune adsorption is one blood purification method that can help eliminate immune complexes from the body. As long as the pathogenic factors are excreted out of the body, inherent kidney functioning tissues can be protected very well.

Medicated Bath, Acupuncture and Foot Bath can be applied to normalize the immune system to prevent the accumulation of immune complexes in kidneys again. Besides, these therapies can improve blood circulation all over the body, so more blood can flow into kidneys.

Lastly, some Chinese medicines are effective to nourish kidneys and prompt the refresh of kidney functioning cells. When impaired kidney cells get recovery gradually, patients’ kidney size can increase to some extent. Only if patients’ kidney problem is managed very well, can they live with their own kidneys safely.
