What Causes Kidneys to Shrink

What Causes Kidneys to ShrinkIf one person's kidneys become atrophic morbidly, patients should pay highly attention to their kidney health and overall health condition. What causes kidneys to shrink? Finding out the answer can guide patients to choose correct treatment plan.

Kidney shrinkage refers to the loss of renal nephrons or lack of renal blood due to various reasons that causes kidney size and function level to decline abnormally. This condition usually appears in various types of end stage kidney disease, renal artery stenosis, renal dysplasia, and so on.

If patients have diabetic nephropathy, hypertensive nephropathy, FSGS, iga nephropathy, lupus nephritis, etc, and don't take effective treatment timely, their chronic kidney disease will aggravate into end stage kidney failure gradually. In end stage, kidney size must be quite smaller than normal kidney.

In addition to abnormal kidney size, patients must suffer from many other kidney-related problems such as swelling, high blood pressure, proteinuria, back pain, hematuria, and so on. All of these can affect patients' prognosis.

In fact, some other patients were born with small kidneys that we call congenital renal dysplasia. A part of patients live with one small kidney, while some others may be born with two small kidneys. If both kidneys fail to work normally, they may be recommended to begin dialysis or do kidney transplant when they are quite young.

From the above analysis, patients with shrunk kidneys should take treatment to save their kidneys timely. As introduced by nephrologists, some Chinese medicines are proven to be effective on refreshing impaired kidney cells, increasing the blood flow into kidneys, and increasing kidney function level. The prescribed Chinese medicines should depend on patients' illness condition, so patients are suggested to provide more information about their medical condition online. Then, kidney doctors here can help them in detail.
