Does Chronic Kidney Disease Always Lead to End Stage Kidney DiseaseDoes chronic kidney disease (CKD) always lead to end stage kidney disease (ESKD)? Many renal patients have the same doubt. They are afraid that once they get kidney disease, they can not get rid of it forever. In fact, there are two final outcomes of kidney disease. The first one is that you get effective treatment and clinical cure. The second one is the development of uremia.

For kidney patients, different pathology is an important factor leading to uncertain prognosis. Now let's look at the prognosis of various kidney diseases.

1. Acute nephritis

Acute nephritis is mostly associated with viral infection and inflammation. Therefore, as long as the causes can be identified within three months and eradicated, acute nephritis can be cured, and it will not develop into uremia.

2. Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis

Its prognosis is usually bad.

It is usually divided into primary and secondary. The primary etiology is uncertain and may be due to severe viral infection or antigen sensitization. Secondary is the body's original disease such as purpura, lupus erythematosus and some primary glomerulonephritis. Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis usually starts rapidly and develop rapidly. It could take hours or generally weeks or months from acute renal failure to uremia.

3. Chronic nephritis

Chronic nephritis has a good prognosis, but it needs to be sustained and stable. Chronic nephritis is caused mostly by flu, overwork, hypertension and so on. And persistent edema, and proteinuria will present. If they relapse frequently and can not be controlled, it will develop into chronic kidney disease.

CKD is difficult to treat, and western medicine has no effective method for the removal of blood toxins, so the body is getting worse and worse under the suppression of steroids, and the burden of kidneys is getting heavier and heavier, which may eventually develop into uremia. However, under the combined treatment of Chinese and western medicine, it is possible for you to get a relatively normal state.

4. Podocyte diseases have different prognosis.

Minimal Change Disease and mild mesangial proliferative nephritis generally have good prognosis, while severe mesangial proliferative nephritis has about 50% chance of developing uremia.

Membranous Nephropathy may develop into uremia, but the course is very slow (more than a decade), during which timely and effective treatment can block the road to uremia.

60% of FSGS patients develop into uremia within 10 years.

5. Cases of secondary Nephropathy developing into uremia increases

In recent years, the prognosis of secondary Nephropathy such as Hypertensive Nephropathy, Diabetic Nephropathy and Lupus Nephritis is getting worse and worse, especially Diabetic Nephropathy. But the prognosis of Purpura Nephritis is good.

However, although pathological factors are the key point in the determination of uremia, it is also an effective means for us to control the disease timely:

As long as we find out the pathological reasons timely, suit the remedy to the case, and use the combination of Chinese and western medicine to inhibit the disease and remove toxins, it is possible to control the disease and prevent it from going into uremia. If you can come to Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment, which has proved to be effective.
