There are always some people to say that all kidney diseases go into uremia. Is it right? In fact, as long as you keep on these 8 methods, you can keep uremia far away.

There are no bones in the kidney. It is made up of over 2 million nephrons. And each nephron consists of a renal capsule and a renal tubule. Those nephrons work very hard. Sometimes due to hard work, one nephron may be dead, but the additional one will take over the work. Therefore, you won’t feel any discomfort when one nephron dies. But when more and more nephrons are damaged, symptoms will gradually present. If a wide range of nephrons are killed, dew kidney function is left.

Do All Kidney Diseases Go into Uremia

You may hear a lot of renal patients say that: as long as it is kidney disease, it will go to uremia.

A pessimist may feel that since there is no cure for this disease, why not save the money?

In fact, these words are right, but you do not get its right meaning.

Do All Kidney Diseases Go into Uremia

Because the deceased nephrons can not be resurrected, when one after another nephrons go to die, uremia will appear. But this does not mean it can not be treated. You can minimize kidney damage to the maximum. In this way, you can slow down the progression of kidney failure and keep uremia away. Then what to do?

1. To control blood pressure

High blood pressure is definitely a risky factor for the progression of renal disease. Kidney itself has the function of regulating blood pressure. When it is damaged, blood pressure increases. High blood pressure can directly accelerate the deterioration of the kidney disease, making the risk of uremia significantly increase. Therefore, it is helpful for you to monitor blood pressure and take anti-hypertensive medicine on time.

2. To control blood sugar level

Sugar is the main source of energy in body. When the body can not break down blood sugar, and blood sugar level is not controlled well, excess sugar will become metabolic waste and be passed out by kidneys so as to put extra stress on kidneys. Over time, it will cause uremia. Diabetics should pay special attention to this point.

If serum creatinine is at a normal range or slightly elevated stage and it remains stable when you find out kidney disease, it means your disease is still in early stage, and it can be treated well. Do not miss the best time for treatment. If your creatinine level has been very high, pay attention to the influence of drugs to creatinine level, and take treatment as early as possible to prevent further kidney damage.
