3 Factors Help You Avoid Uremia
Although kidney disease is one of the most common chronic diseases, not all patients know about it before they get sick, and some people have never heard of it. So a lot of renal patients feel at sea when they are just diagnosed with kidney disease.

Therefore, not all renal patients know that the end of kidney disease is uremia at the beginning, but in the course of treatment, they begin to understand kidney disease and fear uremia.

Everyone tells you that kidney disease can lead to uremia, but no one tells you how to protect your kidney function as much as possible. If someone had told you that, you wouldn't be close to uremia:

1. How does the index change on the lab report reflect kidney disease.

Kidney disease needs to be confirmed by professional examination, some of which directly reflect renal function, and some of which may affect the progress of renal function. If you can understand and value these indicators as soon as possible, instead of feeling useless and unwell so you do not care, and the disease will not lead to uremia. It mainly includes 3 categories of inspection:


Urine routine: It is to check protein, erythrocyte, latent blood, urine specific gravity. If there is an abnormality, it indicates the possibility of kidney problems; Urinary protein creatinine ratio or 24-hour urine protein: if proteinuria is over 0.15g, it indicates impaired renal function, so do not ignore it. Urinary albumin creatinine ratio is a sign of glomerular injury. It is often used in the diagnosis of kidney disease related with diabetes, hypertension and so on. If it is over 30 mg/g, it indicates the possibility of kidney disease. Small molecular protein α1 microglobulin and retinol binding protein can reflect renal tubular injury.

-Blood - related examination: creatinine, urea nitrogen, and cystatin C are common items to reflect renal function. The most sensitive of these is cystatin C. Attach importance when it is abnormal.

-Renal function examination: the normal range of endogenous creatinine clearance is 80-120ml/1.73m, and the glomerular filtration rate is 110-140m/min for males, 10% lower for females.

2. Only 1% of kidney patients progress to uremia, not all.

Many kidney patients’ preconceived idea is "kidney disease equals to uremia". As if the people around you also say so, but very few people tell you "from kidney disease to uremia is a minority", "how to avoid uremia".

Renal patients in early stage has the most possibility to keep away from uremia. First of all, you should pay attention to treatment and symptoms that can worsen kidney disease, such as proteinuria, hypertension, etc. Second, you should give up some bad habits that can cause kidney damage, such as drug abuse, eating and drinking without restriction, etc. Finally, you should attach importance to the subsequent visits and timely communication with doctors, and the premise is that you have found out a professional hospital.

3. To change some behavior that hurts your kidneys as early as possible. It is too late to regret when the disease has gong into uremia.

Once kidney function is found to be impaired, you should be prepared for all sorts of things, including changing some of your kidney habits. But despite early instructions, some patients are reluctant to change them because they don't think these things have any impact on their disease.

For example, bad diet habits, including high salt, high fat, high cholesterol diet, lifestyle habits such as staying up, smoking, drinking, etc. It is better for you to change earlier. They are all conducive to the recovery of kidney function. It is too late to change when the disease has developed into kidney failure.
