Contracted Kidney: How to Treat It Effectively

Contracted Kidney: How to Treat It EffectivelyContracted kidneys, also called kidney shrinkage, are often resulted from end stage kidney disease or congenital disorder. Since contracted kidneys may cause severe problems easily, patients should take effective treatments to manage them effectively.

According to the characteristics of kidney shrinkage, the treatment should begin from the following aspects.

Step 1: Treat the underlying cause

In clinic, many conditions can cause renal atrophy, so patients should find out the underlying cause that can guide patients to accept correct treatment option. Diabetes, high blood pressure, FSGS, IgA Nephropathy, etc, all can cause contracted kidneys. Different causes need different treatment. For example, if high blood pressure is leading cause, patients should take anti-hypertensive medications to lower it timely.

Step 2: Manage contracted kidney complications

ACEI and ARB can help control both high blood pressure and proteinuria, while EPO therapy can treat renal anemia. Consult the Doctor online to determine what medicines you should eat.
