Kidney disease?: Your diagnosis of mild diffuse paenchymal disease (p) was made by a radiologist (r) looking at your renal ultrasound (u). The r's finding of p is a subjective one based on the r's interpretation of the u. You need to go to a nephrologist to have your urine collected for 24 hours to assess your kidney function, along with blood work. Then, can you have an objective idea of your kidneys' function.
