Symptoms of Renal Parenchymal Disease

2012-09-29 16:47

Renal parenchymal disease includes diseases that damage the outermost internal region of the kidney where filtration and urine formation occur. Medical conditions, obstructions or autoimmune disorders may all contribute to renal parenchymal disease. Bacterial infections, lupus, Diabetes and high blood pressure can damage the kidney tissues, causing scarring and even Kidney Failure.

Symptoms of Lupus Nephritis include swelling in the feet, legs and around the eyes. Patients may find bubbles or blood in their urine, which means that patients may also have proteinuria and hematuresis. Inadequate filtering and excess fluids may cause high blood pressure.

If Diabetes can not be controlled well, the condition may eventually lead to renal parenchymal disease and even Kidney Failure. High blood sugar puts increased pressure on the filtering system and increases pressure within the arterioles. The strain of continuously ridding the body of sugar decreases filtering ability and finally causes permanent damage. Proteinuria and high blood pressure may occur. And high blood pressure and kidney damage usually affect each other.

Excess body fluids trigger angiotensin release and subsequent response from the sympathetic nervous system to constrict blood vessels. Which can force more blood to the kidneys. renal parenchymal disease happens when this constriction forces the fluids through the glomeruli and other capillaries, which can cause cellular damage to vessel linings. As times goes, scarring occurs, and vessels become thickened and stiff.

As a matter of fact, the symptoms of renal parenchymal disease are associated with the damage of glomeruli. And these symptoms usually include proteinuria, blood in urine, high blood pressure, anemia and so on. Once condition develops Kidney Failure, more symptoms will occur. So what kinds of symptoms are you suffering from?
