Can ATN Cause Permanent Damage to KidneyATN, which means Acute Tubule Necrosis, is a kidney disorder involving damage to the tubules cells of the kidneys, which can lead to Acute Kidney Failure.

Causes

ATN is usually caused by a lack of oxygen to the kidney tissues (ischemia of the kidneys). It may also occur if the kidney cells are damaged by a poison or harmful substance.

Symptoms of Acute Tubule Necrosis

● Decreased consciousness, coma, delirium or confusion, drowsy, lethargic, hard to arouse

● Decreased urine output or no urine output

● General swelling, fluid retention

● Nausea, vomiting

Can ATN cause permanent kidney damage?

Without timely treatments, ATN can cause Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) which is irreversible in advanced stages. You can consult our doctors online to know the prognosis of ATN.

Treatment for ATN

In most people, ATN is reversible. The goal of treatment is to prevent life-threatening complications of Acute Kidney Failure.

Treatment focuses on preventing the excess buildup of fluids and wastes, while repairing kidney function. During the process, you should be watched closely by your doctor in case of kidney damage due to nephrotoxic medicines.

Treatment can include:

● Limit your sodium

● Restricting fluid intake to a volume equal to the volume of urine produced plus 500ml

● Eat less protein, potassium and phosphorous to reduce the burden on kidneys

● Temporary dialysis can remove excess waste and fluids. This can make you feel better, and may make the kidney failure easier to control. Dialysis may not be necessary for all people, but is often lifesaving, especially if serum potassium is dangerously high.

● Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
