Kidney Diseases :
Kidney diseases treatment center in Delhi, Noida and Patna. Dr Rajeev is one of best doctor for treatment of kidney diseases.
The kidneys are a pair of bean-shaped organs that lie on the sides of the upper part of the tummy (abdomen), behind the intestines, and either sides of the spine. Each kidney weighs about 5 ounces and contains approximately one million filtering units called nephrons.
Each nephron is made of a glomerulus and a tubule. The glomerulus is a miniature filtering or sieving device while the tubule is a tiny tube like structure attached to the glomerulus.
The liquid that remains at the end of each tubule is called urine. The urine then passes down a tube called a ureter which goes from each kidney to the bladder. Urine is stored in the bladder until it is passed out when we go to the toilet.
FUNCTIONS OF KIDNEY
The main functions of the kidneys are to:
- Filter out waste products from the bloodstream, to be passed out in the urine.
- Help to control blood pressure – partly by the amount of water passed out of the body as urine and partly by making hormones which are involved in blood pressure control.
- Make a hormone called erythropoietin (‘epo’) which stimulates the bone marrow to make red blood cells. This is needed to prevent anemia.
- Help keep various salts and chemicals in the blood at the right level.
Causes kidney disease (CKD)
A number of conditions can cause permanent damage to the kidneys and/or affect the function of the kidneys and lead to KD. Following are the causes of Kidney Diseases in adults:
- Diabetes.Diabetic kidney disease is a common complication of diabetes.
- High blood pressure. Untreated or poorly treatedhigh blood pressure is a major cause of KD. However, KD can also cause high blood pressure, as the kidney has a role in blood pressure regulation. About nine out of ten people with KD is also suffering from high blood pressure.
- Ageing kidneys. There appears to be an age-related decline in kidney function. About half of people aged 75 or more have some degree of KD.
SYMPTOMS OF KIDNEY DISEASE
Many people does not know Kidney disease in early stages due invisible sign of these diseases. It may take many years to develop from chronic kidney disease (CKD) to kidney failure. Most people with KD live out their lives without ever reaching kidney failure. People with stage 3 CKD have about an 80% chance of never having their kidneys fail.
Knowing the symptoms of kidney disease can help to get the treatment.
Symptom 1: Changes in Urination
Kidneys make urine, so when the kidneys are failing, the urine may change.
Person suffering from these diseases may have to get up at night to urinate.
Urine may be foamy or bubbly.
Person suffering from kidney diseases may urinate more often, or in greater amounts than usual, with pale urine.
Person suffering from Kidney diseases may urinate less often, or in smaller amounts than usual, with dark-colored urine.
Urine may contain blood.
Person suffering from these diseases may feel pressure or have difficulty urinating.
Symptom 2: Swelling
Failing kidneys don’t remove extra fluid, which builds up in body causing swelling in the legs, ankles, feet, face, and/or hands.
Symptom 3: Fatigue
Healthy kidneys make a hormone called erythropoietin (a-rith’-ro-po’-uh-tin), or EPO, which is helps in body to make oxygen-carrying red blood cells. As the kidneys fail, they make less EPO.
Symptom 4: Skin Rash/Itching
Kidneys remove wastes from the bloodstream. When the kidneys fail, the build-up of wastes in blood can cause severe itching.
Symptom 5: Metallic Taste in Mouth/Ammonia Breath
A build-up of wastes in the blood (called uremia) can make food taste different and cause bad breath. You may also notice that you stop liking to eat meat, or that you are losing weight because you just don’t feel like eating.
Symptom 6: Nausea and Vomiting
A severe build-up of wastes in the blood (uremia) can also cause nausea and vomiting. Loss of appetite can lead to weight loss.
Symptom 7: Shortness of Breath
Trouble catching breath can be related to the kidneys in two ways. First, extra fluid in the body can build up in the lungs. And second, anemia (a shortage of oxygen-carrying red blood cells) can leave body oxygen-starved and short of breath.
Symptom 8: Feeling Cold
Anemia can make feel cold all the time, even in a warm room.
Symptom 9: Dizziness and Trouble Concentrating
Anemia related to kidney failure means that brain is not getting enough oxygen. This can lead to memory problems, trouble with concentration, and dizziness.
Symptom 10: Leg/Flank Pain
The most common causes of CKD do not cause any pain. And, much of the pain that is near the kidneys is not caused by a kidney problem. But some people who have CKD do have pain.
Some people with kidney problems may have pain in the upper back (where the kidneys are) or on the same side as the affected kidney.
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD), which causes large, fluid-filled cysts on the kidneys and sometimes the liver, can cause pain.
Kidney infections and kidney stones can cause severe pain, often in spasms.
Bladder infections can cause burning when you urinate.
STAGES OF KIDNEY DISEASE
Stages of Kidney disease are determined by the glomerular filtration rate. Glomerular filtration is the process by which the kidneys filter the blood, removing excess wastes and fluids. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is a calculation that determines how well the blood is filtered by the kidneys.
Glomerular filtration rate is usually calculated using a formula that includes a person’s age, gender, race, and serum creatinine levels. A GFR under 60 mL/min/1.73 m² may indicate kidney disease. The lower the GFR number, the worse the kidney function. This number is an estimate. Kidney disease is defined as either kidney damage or GFR of less than 60 for longer than 3 months.
|STAGE||DESCRIPTION||GFR||STEPS TO CONTROL /MINIMISE KIDNEY DISEASES|
|1||Kidney damage with normal or high GFR||90 or above||You require to consult doctor, he will try to find the reason of your kidney disease and begin treatment.|
|2||Kidney damage with mildly low GFR||60-89||
You require to consult doctor, he will estimate how quickly your disease is progressing.
· You need to Control blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
Regular monitoring is also required.
|3||Kidney damage with moderately low GFR||30-59||
You require to consult doctor, he will check you for complications, such as anemia and bone disease, and begin treatment if needed.
Regular monitoring is also required.
|4||Kidney damage with severely low GFR||15-29||
Decide what type of treatment you want if kidney failure develops.
Continue to see doctor and treatment and regular monitoring.
|5||Kidney failure||Below 15||
Start dialysis, have a kidney transplant, or choose palliative care.
Continue to see doctor for treatment and testing.
