Please tell me about ADPKD. Is it dangerous? What are the affects at the age of 18?
ADPKD is a familial disease which commonly affects the kidneys. The course of disease can be judged by the way any family member is affected. For now you should keep a check on your blood pressure and drink lot of water. Avoid unnecessary painkillers. Sometimes the cyst are not apparent at this age.

Kidney Failure - Why It Happens?

Kidney Failure - Why It Happens?

Nephrology is the study of kidney diseases and includes analysis of kidney issues. There are many factors that lead to dying of kidneys or failing (as doctors like to phrase it), it includes malformed, obstructed, or absent kidneys. ACE inhibitors taken while pregnant will cause the baby to be born with no kidneys and genetics. You need your kidneys because they filter waste products out of your blood stream, thereby purifying it. One such kidney disease is acute kidney injury.

Acute kidney injury occurs when the kidneys are no longer able to filter waste and water from the bloodstream.  There are three types of renal failure: prerenal, postrenal, and renal. Prerenal deals with blood flow problems before the blood reaches the kidneys, post renal deals with urine (wastewater) being unable to flow out of the kidneys, and renal deals with the kidneys being unable to properly filter the blood to produce urine.

About 60 to 70% of all renal failure cases are prerenal, meaning that not there is not enough blood flow to the kidneys to allow them to filter it properly.  Extreme dehydration and dramatic drops in blood pressure after surgery can cause this. It can also be caused by a blocked or narrowed blood vessel to the kidneys, heart failure or heart attacks causing low blood flow to the kidneys, and liver failure which causes the hormones that regulate blood flow to the kidneys to be affected.

People with renal failure tend to have to urinate frequently, retain fluid in the legs and eyes, high blood pressure, fatigue and weakness, appetite loss, nausea, and vomiting, and skin that itches and bruises easily, and is pale.

Post-renal-failure makes up 5 to 105 of all renal failure cases and is caused by urine being blocked from flowing out of the kidneys.  It can be caused by kidney stones, cancer of the urinary tract organs, and medications.

Renal failure is often times caused by primary renal failure (making up 25 to 40% of all cases).  This type of renal failure is caused by diseases of the blood vessels, a blood clot in the kidney vessel(s), kidney tissue or cell injury, glomerumelonephritis, acute interstitial nephritis, acute tubular necrosis, and polycystic kidney disease.  

People with acute renal failure tend to urinate less, have swelling in various parts of the body, have trouble concentrating, confusion, fatigue, lethargy, nausea, and/or vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and metallic taste in the mouth.  

Now that the some of the reasons why people’s kidneys can malfunction are known, people can preserve their kidney function by exercise and proper diet. Avoid unnecessary medications.

Normally, patients do not require dialysis at a creatinine of 3.2. However, it depends upon a number of factors. Whether his creatinine has risen suddenly or it was rising previously also , will be the deciding factor. But if overall he is fine and his acid / potassium level are fine , then can wait...but it always depends on clinical picture

Hello Doctor, My mother has hypertension and around 62 years old. In 2014 she had itching on skin, as per doctors advice given blood samples. That time creatine level is 1.6 and started taking allopathy medicine from last 5 year. The tablets didn't helped to maintain the same creatine level. As per 11th september blood report creatine level is 10.9 and Doctor suggested to start dialysis immediately. But my Mother don't want to go for that. She is mentally disappointed by eating 10-15 tablets daily and loosing hope on that. Symptoms: No appetite for about 1 month Light swelling on face Sleeping disorder Cold and cough from September 1st Some one told her to try Ayurveda, so ordered ayurveda medicine and started taking these medicines along with allopathy medicines from 15th september. After 10 days creatine level is 9.9. Symptoms after Ayurveda for 10 days: She is hungry to eat after taking medicines Light Cold and cough now no other symptoms Now I am in worry as delaying dialysis may worst the scenario but she wanted to try ayurveda for some more time as she is feeling better after eating these medicines. Please suggest what's is the best way to make her happy. What are the symptoms indicate dialysis is must. Thanks in advance.

Hello... Unfortunately chronic kidney diseases are often irreversible and such high creatinine with symptoms,ideally she should be initiated on dialysis at least for now. Whether kidneys will recover , depends upon a number of factors, such as the rate of rise of creatinine and any precipitating cause which may have caused it to increase. I would advise you not to wait till her symptoms worsen. There is not much of a difference between 10.2 and 9.9

Cyst are common in that age group. If its a simple cyst , you need not worry. However certain type of cyst can be cancerous and require further evaluation for which it is important to know the complete character of the cyst For prostate , a simple medicine can be used to decrease its size and improve symptoms initially
