Renal disease: Chronic renal parenchymal (P) disease refers to damage to the renal parenchyma, as opposed to the renal blood vessels. Before this condition can be treated, the underlying cause of the kidney damage must be determined, as this can dictate which treatment regimen is most appropriate. HBP and diabetes are some of the causes of P.
