These Two Tips Can Help You Avoid Uremia
Kidney patients with different illness condition will have various kinds of questions. For example, patients with proteinuria are not sensitive to hormones, high blood pressure is not reduced and serum creatinine level is not lowered, etc. Some patients will encounter a bottleneck period of treatment
How to get through this bottleneck period and make breakthrough in treatment?
1. Improve your own ability to fight kidney disease
It is not enough to only take medicines for kidney disease. Some common medicines like hormones and immunosuppressive agents for reducing proteinuria, antihypertensive drugs like sartan, medicines for creatinine like tripterygium willd and carbon tablets, all play a limited role.
Kidney function damage is not reversed and medicine effects are limited so kidney patients must improve their own abilities to fight kidney disease. Patients need to take medicines on time, insist on low protein diet and avoid infection, which is beneficial for stabilizing proteinuria. You need to improve your immunity by changing your daily habits.
2. Pay attention to each examination index seriously, make diagnosis and treatment in time
We said that only 1 to 2 percent of people with kidney disease can develop uremia, and 90 percent of people with kidney disease stay stable. And those who continue to deteriorate, often miss the best treatment time.
Kidney treatment is a time war. In early stage, chronic nephritis has light kidney damage, and it can be maintained in this stage with eliminating proteinuria and swelling in time. But some patients think their condition is not bad and does not take treatment seriously, finally uremia occurs.
Timely detection and timely treatment is closely related to timely check up. Important checkups include 24h urine protein quantity in routine urine examination, serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen and elf inhibition C and other indicators in routine blood test. The indexes for renal function include glomerular filtration rate, endogenous creatinine clearance, and kidney ultrasound of kidney shape.
After over 30% kidney function is damaged, it is not possible to reverse it completely. If proteinuria, high blood pressure and other indexes are maintained at stable level all the time, it proves kidney function is stable, too. Although it is in bottleneck period, you do not need to worry about kidney failure too much.
