Can Renal Fibrosis be Reversed?
Renal fibrosis is destined to form when kidney is damaged in Kidney Diseases including Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). Many patients with Kidney Diseases wonder whether the damaged kidney can be recovered or not. In other words, once formed, is it possible for renal fibrosis to be reversed? Actually, as long as the effective treatments are adopted early, renal fibrosis can be reversed at its early stages.
There are three stages of renal fibrosis: stage of inflammation, stage of fibrosis formation and scarring stage.
Natural treatment for Polycystic Kidney Disease
Stage of inflammation
At this stage, kidney has been damaged pathologically. The infection has provoked renal fibrosis, but symptoms have not showed themselves except some abnormal values in urine test. With the great compensation, glomeruli in kidney can pick up the function of the damaged ones. If the inflammation destroys renal tissues, some patients will have glomerulosclerosis but still without obvious symptoms. This stage is the optimal time for treating renal fibrosis because the most glomeruli are normal at present. If measures are adopted such as dilating blood vessels, anti-inflammation, guarding against viscosity and clotting as well as degrading fibrous tissues, renal fibrosis can be reversed and even the disease is cured.
Stage of fibrosis formation
At this stage, renal fibrosis has covered the whole kidney and they have damaged most glomeruli. The surviving glomeruli no longer make up for the damaged ones and the renal function is affected. The kidney diseases have caused Kidney Failure. If the renal fibrous tissues are degraded and anoxia is eased in kidney, it is possible to reverse renal fibrosis in a sense. If without reasonable dietary regiment and effective treatment, this stage will deteriorate into uremia, namely scarring stage.
Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) treatment Stages
Once forms, scar tissues can not be reversed, but if patients still have more than 1000 ml urine in 24 hours, there is a little surviving renal function filtrating metabolic wastes and forming urine. As long as the surviving renal function is protected and renal fibrosis stops deteriorating, it is possible to prolong the interval of dialysis and even get rid of dialysis, even though scar tissues can not be reversed.
