Renal atrophy or kidney shrinkage means that your kidney is smaller than normal size and it often happens to renal failure patients. If patients have renal atrophy, their prognosis will be poor. Therefore, knowing some methods to prevent renal atrophy is very necessary.

After a period of treatment, kidney shrinkage can be stopped and even reverse. If you are interested in this therapy, you can consult our Online Doctors for more information.
