Renal Biopsy for Kidney Patients
Although renal biopsy has been used in clinical practice for years, many patients till do not know it clearly so that they miss the best chance of diagnosis and treatment. In the following, we will learn renal biopsy from three aspects.

1. Is renal biopsy a must for diagnosing kidney disease?

In fact, not all kidney diseases require renal biopsy, and renal biopsy is not as scary as you imagine. Whether or not a kidney biopsy should be done is determined by the your condition rather than by feeling.

Renal biopsy is the "golden index" for the diagnosis of kidney disease, which has an indelible contribution to the diagnosis of various primary glomerulopathy, such as membranous nephropathy, mild glomerulopathy, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, various types of proliferative glomerulonephritis and the use of drugs.

2. Does renal biopsy have any risks?

At present, renal biopsy is already a mature technology. As long as the operation is in compliance, it will generally not leave any sequelae. Just like selecting NPC deputies, renal biopsy is to select 10 to 20 renal units out of more than 2 million and to check whether these renal units have damage or not. This is to done under B ultrasound, which has mild injury. As to the hematuria, back pain and other discomfort brought by surgery, basically after a week or so, they can be recovered.

3. What precautions should be taken after surgery?

If there are no special circumstances, it is necessary to drink more water and dilute the blood after surgery, which is helpful for the recovery of hematuria.

In general, you can get out of bed and move yourself after 24 hours of renal biopsy. Do not have intense activity in 2 weeks, and do not carry heavy things. After about 1 month, all these discomforts will disappear basically.

Renal biopsy is only a small traumatic examination. Do not delay the best time for diagnosis and treatment due to fear.
