Kidney Disorders Treatment
The kidneys keep the bodys chemistry in balance by removing waste products and excess water. Kidneys also regulate blood pressure and stimulate red blood cell production. Although the body can stay healthy with only a single kidney, it is important that kidney disorders are treated promptly because some kidney disorders progress rapidly, often affecting both kidneys.
Find here the details of the Kidney Transplant Treatment Procedure For End Stage Kidney Failure along with the symptoms, diagnosis of End Stage Kidney Failure.
In end-stage kidney failure, the kidneys have permanently lost more than 90 percent of their normal function. They are therefore unable to filter waste products and excess water out of the blood for excretion as urine. End-stage kidney failure usually progresses from chronic kidney failure. If prompt action is not taken to replace the function of the failed kidneys with dialysis or a kidney transplant, the condition is inevitably fatal. .. Read More ...
Chronic Kidney Failure: Gradual and progressive loss of function in both kidneys.
In chronic kidney failure, progressive damage gradually reduces the ability of the kidneys to remove excess water and wastes from the blood for excretion as urine. As a result, waste substances start to build up in the body and cause problems. In many cases, kidney function is reduced by over 60% before the buildup begins; by this time, often after months or perhaps years, the kidneys may be irreversibly damaged. Dialysis or a kidney transplant may therefore become necessary. .. Read More ...
Dialysis is used to treat kidney failure by replacing the functions of the kidneys, which filter out wastes and excess water from the blood. It can be a temporary treatment for acute kidney failure or a long term measure used in end-stage kidney failure. There are two forms; peritoneal membrane in the abdomen is used as a filter; and hemodialysis, in which a kidney machine filters the blood. .. Read More ... .. Read More ...
Kidney Cancer: Cancerous tumors that either originate in the kidney or have spread from a cancer elsewhere in the body.
In most cases of kidney cancer, a tumor develops within the kidney tissue itself. Rarely, cancer may spread to the kidney from other organs in the body. There are three main types of kidney cancer. The most common type, adenocarcinoma, develops from the cells that make up the main body of the kidneys. A second, rare form, known as transitional cell carcinoma, develops from the cells that line the urine-collecting system within the kidney, bladder, and uterus (the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder). ..

Pyelonephritis is a common kidney disorder in which kidney tissue becomes inflamed, usually due to a bacterial infection. Glomerulonephritis is a kidney disorder which develops when inflammation damages the glomeruli (the kidneys filtering units). Glomerulonephritis is most often the result of an abnormal response of the immune system rather than infection.
Kidney stones are often treated by a technique called lithotripsy, in which shock waves are used to pulverize the stones. Cysts are usually harmless, but multiple cysts resulting from a genetic disorder may cause kidney failure. Kidney failure may occur suddenly, especially if it results from a reduction in the blood flow to the kidneys, but it more often develops gradually due to a long term disease such as diabetes mellitus. Kidney infections in children as well as a rare kidney cancer called Wilms tumor will be discussed.
