Chronic Renal Failure Can Be Prevented for Sure

2012-10-04 18:03

Chronic Renal Failure is easily to be misdiagnosed due to its symptoms are nonspecific. Fatigue, weakness, decreased mental sharpness, elevated blood pressure, dizziness, nausea or even vomiting is common signs or symptoms.

Due to nonspecific characteristics of symptoms, misdiagnosis develops. Fatigue, weakness or physical decline is often misdiagnosed as digestive tract disease. The appearance of asthenia, pale face or anemia is often regarded as some kind of blood diseases. Some of the gouty nephritis patients are often regarded as rheumatic arthritis and are wrongly treated for a long time.

Misdiagnosis has nothing to do with one’s illness, or even aggravates one’s illness condition since root cause of the disease is ignored but treatments, instead, focus more on dealing with complications or symptoms, so what should we do to prevent it from happening? Actually, early prevention can be done to better manage your condition instead of suffering from wrong treatment. They can be:

1. Early prevention

Early prevention or detection contributes a lot to the prognosis and therapeutic effects in the further. Early detection may take good control of kidney disease so as to slow down the occurrence of Chronic Renal Failure.

2. Several measures to slow down progression of Chronic Renal Failure.

▪ Visit your doctor regularly

Paying regular visit to your doctor is beneficial to slow down the progression or development of CRF. Meanwhile, regular check-ups instruct the patients to take right treatments timely. Nephrotoxic drugs can possibly be avoided if you talk with your doctor from time to time. Infections, massive bleeding, urinary tract obstruction or hypokalemia would be treated timely.

▪ Follow a kidney-friendly diet

Clinical research reveals that low protein and phosphorus diet could slow down or even temporarily stop the development in most cases of CRF. If the patient suffers from hyperphosphatemia, then low level of phosphorus diet or phosphate binder is strongly recommended.

▪ Take good control of your blood pressure

The control of high blood pressure could hold back the development of glomerular fibrosis. ACE inhibitors are commonly used to reduce pressure within glomeruli and relieve hyperfiltration in people with Chronic Renal Failure.
