5 Types of Kidney Diseases Are Self-HealingKidney disease is dangerous and difficult to treat. And once it develops to kidney failure, treatment costs will be very expensive, which puts a great burden on the minds of the patients.

However, the following types of patients do not have too much mental burden, because these types of kidney disease are self-healing. That is to say, in the natural development of the disease, without serious medical intervention, the disease itself will be better.

1. Glomerular capillary endothelial proliferative nephritis after acute streptococcal infection

Despite its long name, the disease is not difficult to treat. Endothelial cell disease is mostly because of "acute nephritis," and post-streptococcal nephritis is most commonly to see, and it also occurs among other bacteria, such as pneumococcus, gonococcus, typhoid bacteria.

It is common in children, as well as adults. In kidney disease, it is also the highest proportion of self-healing. Most acute nephritis patients can fully recover without sequelae.

2. Membranous Nephropathy

This is a kidney disease diagnosed by renal biopsy as "idiopathic membranous nephropathy". A large number of studies have found that the spontaneous complete remission rate in patients with idiopathic membranous nephropathy is as high as 1/3 within 5 years with the natural development of the disease and no serious medical intervention.

3. IgA Nephropathy

It was found that in the natural course of IgA nephropathy patients, about 12% were fully self-healing, and the self-healing rate was higher in patients with low urinary protein.

4. Minimal Change Disease (MCD)

It is a relatively light pathological type, most of which will not show renal function decline, and there are also self-healing, about 5-10% of adult patients with MCD can achieve self-healing.

5. Asymptomatic hematuria

In a prospective study of young men, the detection rate of asymptomatic hematuria was 39 percent at the time of a screening. In later follow-up, the detection rate of asymptomatic hematuria decreased to 16%, suggesting that some asymptomatic hematuria may be transient (temporary) and self-healing.

How to treat the kidney disease that can heal itself?

Although these diseases have a tendency to heal themselves, but only a part of the patients can heal themselves, so the drug should be used. Scientists do not fully understand why, and there is no guarantee that it will heal itself. If you just wait for its self-healing, it may get worse.

Therefore, these patients need to develop healthy habits. The "treatment" in the hospital and "rehabilitation" affect each other.

1. "Treatment" mainly refers to follow-up. Although you can avoid "fierce drugs", such as hormones and immunosuppressants. Necessary supportive treatments, such as controlling inflammation, improving oxidative stress and minimizing urinary protein, are needed.

2. “Rehabilitation” refers that you do not do things that damage kidneys. Try to keep a regular routine, light diet, moderate exercise, use less medicine and no health products. Only use traditional Chinese medicine or 1-2 kinds of western medicine. Do not ask your doctor for quickly cure, nor try folk prescription.
