Is Kidney Shrinkage ReversibleKidney shrinkage or Renal Atrophy occurs when may nephrons are dead. When that happens, it definitely means the kidney function has been damaged.

Is Kidney Shrinkage reversible?

Kidney Shrinkage is not reversible. What patients should do is to protect and enhance the remaining kidney function. Our kidneys have strong compensatory ability, so one can work more to function adequately when the other is damage.

How is Kidney Shrinkage treated?

This answer depends on the primary causes and symptoms of Kidney Shrinkage. Diabetes, high blood pressure, some immune diseases and infections can all cause kidney damage, and results in Kidney Shrinkage. Therefore, the goal of treatment should include relieving symptoms and control complications.

What are the natural treatment for Kidney Shrinkage?

● Diet. To be strict, diet play an important role in treating kidney disease to reduce the stress on kidneys. Since the kidneys fail to remove wastes and fluid effectively, Kidney Shrinkage patients are required to limit sodium, protein, potassium and phosphorous intake.

Fluid intake should also be taken based on they patient’s body weight and urine output.

In addition, in the late stage of Kidney Shrinkage, patients should increase high-quality protein intake. As for detailed suggestion, please email to us at or leave a message below.
