These 7 Factors Mean Kidney Damage

These 7 Factors Mean Kidney Damage
These 7 factors mean kidney damage. When you have over two factors, be careful. It is likely for you to develop uremia.

Almost all kidney patients are afraid to go to uremia. For some renal patients, their disease is so stable that they won’t go into kidney failure in their whole life, while for some renal patients, once they find the disease, they have had uremia. Why there are such a big difference?

Of course, it is associated with the types of kidney disease, but its essence is the structure and function of the kidney. As long as the kidney function is maintained well, there will be no serious development of kidney disease. However, some patients lack the understanding of the existence and control of risk factors, leading to the accelerated time of renal failure. So, what are the risk factors that play a major role in the development of kidney disease?

1. Hypertension

Blood pressure and kidneys are always affected each other. When kidneys are not working well, blood pressure will increase. And long-term hypertension can cause further kidney damage, leading to glomerular sclerosis, which in turn speeds up the process of kidney failure and increases the risk of uremia.

2. High blood sugar

Diabetes can lead to thickening of the glomerular capillaries basal membranes, leading to diffuse or nodular glomerular sclerosis. Its clinical feature is that continuous proteinuria accelerates renal function damage, leading to severe renal failure and ultimately to uremia. Therefore, patients with Diabetic Nephropathy must regularly monitor blood glucose and proteinuria.

3. Hyperlipidemia

Studies have shown that elevated blood lipids can accelerate the decline of kidney function and induce kidney damage caused by other diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes, gout, etc. If combined with hyperlipidemia, it will further promote the occurrence of renal failure. Therefore, good control of blood lipids is also an important step in kidney protection.

4. High uric acid

In addition to causing gout, high uric acid can also cause kidney damage. The accumulation of large amounts of uric acid crystals in the kidney will cause the blockage of the renal tubules, often manifested as a sharp rise in serum creatinine, oliguria and other symptoms. In severe case, it can cause acute renal failure.

5. C-reactive protein

Kidney patients generally focus on creatinine, urinary protein, occult blood and other indicators, but it is not known that c-reactive protein occurs earlier than creatinine, urea nitrogen and other indicators in the course of kidney disease. Therefore, changes in c-reactive protein can help kidney patients prevent and treat renal disease earlier.

6. Anemia

Studies have shown that when kidney function drops to a certain level, anaemia can occur, accelerating the progression of the disease. When a patient has insufficient intrarenal blood perfusion, it is easy to cause renal failure.

7. High homocysteine

Elevated homocysteine levels indicate decreased renal function. Clinical data show that patients with chronic kidney disease, especially those with renal failure, tend to have high homocysteine. With the worsening of kidney failure, homocysteine will increase.

These factors are even more significant than creatinine, urinary protein and other indicators. Kidney patients must not ignore them so as to avoid further harm to the kidneys and prevent early renal failure.
