5 of the Most Difficult Kidney Diseases to TreatRefractory nephropathy is a kind of kidney disease that can not get remission with conventional medicine, or relapses frequently after temporary remission. Twenty years later, more than 50 percent of refractory nephropathy patients progress to uremia, eventually surviving on dialysis.

If you have one of the following 5 conditions, take it seriously and treat it aggressively to prevent uremia.

1. The elderly

In general, young people's kidney disease is more difficult to treat than children's kidney disease, and old people's kidney disease is more difficult to treat than young people's kidney disease. Because older people tend to have poor physical condition, and they are at greater risk of high blood pressure, high blood sugar, atherosclerosis, tumors and diseases related to connective tissue. Not only is the elderly less resistant to the disease, but also can't withstand the drug impact, so in the clinical practice, the doctors often dare not use drugs, resulting in poor treatment effect.

2. Combined with hematuria

Kidney patients usually have proteinuria. When proteinuria and hematuria (including gross hematuria and microscopic hematuria) present together, it is difficult to treat, especially for those with gross hematuria. Of course, this is only the general situation. In some cases, even though they have gross hematuria, they can stabilize the disease for long-term.

3. Abnormal kidney function

Some people with kidney disease have elevated creatinine and decreased renal function at the onset of symptoms. Such patients often have refractory nephropathy such as Membranous Proliferative Nephropathy and Crescent Nephritis, and are not sensitive to drugs. A small number of patients with abnormal renal function, such as Minimal Change Disease, may have a transient decrease in renal function, but it can return to normal.

4. Combined with high blood pressure

Patients with high blood pressure have a high possibility of refractory nephropathy, and their condition is more difficult to treat than the above conditions. Especially for those whose systolic blood pressure can not fall below 140 after taking 3 types of anti-hypertensive drugs, their kidney function is difficult to control, and finally progress to uremia.

5. Elevated urine α and β microglobulin and NAG enzyme

The composition of urine protein is various. The urine protein of common kidney patients is a few albumin; while the urine protein of refractory nephropathy patients is usually α microglobulin, β microglobulin and NAG enzymes. The elevation of these refractory proteins represents a severe lesion in the renal tubulointerstitium, at which point patients often begin the process of renal failure.

Kidney disease that has these characteristics, not necessarily is refractory nephropathy, but is more difficult to treat.
