These Indicators About Kidney Disease You Should KnowSome key indicators in the course of kidney disease treatment can reflect the status of renal function and the development trend of the disease, which are equivalent to the "signal light" of kidney disease. What do you think are the key indicators? Many people will mention proteinuria, blood creatinine and so on. Today we will introduce the indicators that kidney patients must know.

Three indicators of renal detoxification function

The importance of the kidney lies in its function of detoxification, electrolyte regulation and other functions. After the kidney is damaged, the renal function will also decline. Uremia is the final manifestation of renal failure. While the purpose of kidney disease treatment is to protect renal function, these important indicators of renal function must be understood.

Serum creatinine, urea nitrogen and uric acid, these 3 major indexes reflect the detoxification ability of the kidney. Creatinine, urea nitrogen and uric acids are the waste products in body, which need to be filtered out of the body by the kidney. When the kidney detoxification ability decreases, these indicators will naturally increase. But the blood creatinine reaction is not sensitive enough, when its level increases, renal function may have been damaged by more than 50%; Urea nitrogen is the same with creatinine. Only when GFR is reduced by over 50% can its level increase. Uric acid reaction is relatively sensitive. Excessive intake of high purine food, obesity and so on can all cause uric acid to rise, so kidney patients should attach importance when uric acid level increases.

The three increased indicators mean kidney function declines. After every checkup, you had better compare it with the tests before. If there are any problems, you can communicate with your doctor. After all, early detection and early treatment is crucial.

Three indicators of renal filtration function

One of the most important aspects of kidney filtration function is the production of urine and the elimination of body wastes. Therefore, the indicators in the urine routine examination are also non-negligible indicators reflecting the disease. Proteinuria, routine glucose and urine ketone bodies are the three key indicators.

Protein leakage in the urine indicates damage to the glomerular filtration membrane and renal tubules. Generally speaking, the more severe the proteinuria, the worse the renal function. Urine glucose usually occurs among Diabetic Nephropathy patients. The presence of positive glucose (+) in urine examination also indicates that kidney tissue has lost part of its function. Usually, the more severe the urine sugar is, the greater the impact on kidney function will be. Urinary ketone body also occurs more in Diabetic Nephropathy patients, and it should be treated once being detected.

Kidney B ultrasound

Kidney B ultrasound is a common examination, but it is of great significance. B ultrasound examination is mainly to understand the kidney volume, blood flow and determine the existence of abnormalities.

After kidney is damaged, kidney cells can be necrotic gradually. With the deterioration of illness condition, they can become fibrosis and sclerosis, leading to kidney atrophy. From kidney b-ultrasound, we can see the kidney volume becomes small apparently.

Kidney itself is a capillary group. When blood circulation is not good, kidney will be in the state of ischemia and hypoxia, which will accelerate the death of kidney cells so as to aggravate kidney failure.

In addition, it can also help determine which kind of substantial damage to the kidney, such as whether there is echo area, whether there is strong spot area, etc., which can determine the situation of renal cyst, kidney stones, hydronephrosis and so on.
