Kidney size: No. That is normal.Get a more detailed answer ›
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
Needs to evaluate: It is not uncommon to find a condition called vesico ureteral reflux or a narrowing of the drainage portion of the kidney as it meets the ureter or so called upj stenosis. Both of these would require a pediatric urology opinion. In the great majority of cases medical treatment and observation over time is all that is required.
The 2 joined togethr: This generally would mean the tissues meant to form 2 separate kidneys never separated and just formed one.
What does thickening of kidney tissue mean in a 20 week fetus one md says DS the other says it means it's developing. What's your thought?
Here are some...: To save your time and avoid unnecessary worry & anxiety, it would be most beneficial to refer this question to your OB-doc who ordered the test. To interpret prenatal US of a fetus, it is good idea to correct with your overall clinical picture and other parts of the fetus; at times, a second US in 6-8 weeks may be needed for comparison and deduction of the related clinical consistency. So, ask docSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Good question. They are two separate organs so you should still have 2 adrenals.

Is taking cucumber bad while one is suffering from kidney disease. I mean renel tubular ascidoses.
OK: Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) happens when there is impaired reabsorption of bicarbonate and/or impaired acidification by the kidneys. One way to treat RTA is to give alkaline substances (sodium bicarbonate). Cucumbers are considered high alkaline forming foods and should be ok to consume if you have rta.
I'm 29 weeks I went to have a ultrasound done & he said my daughter dilated that one kidney bigger than the other. What does it mean?
Perhaps nothing: A dilated kidney on us can indicate a blockage in the ureter from the kidney as well as damage to the kidney. More often than not, however, this is a finding that resolves on its'own over time. It is the cost of of technology--finding things that may ultimately be of no significance. Serial ultrasounds will clarify this.

I had one more quick question. If bun 25, creatinine 1.5, bun/creat ratio 17, egfr 58...The egfr means im in stage 3 CKD right? 58% kidney function?
Stage 3 CKD: You are correct in that your estimated GFR of 58 ml/min puts you into stage 3 chronic kidney disease. Remember, your GFR is estimated. The actual result may be greater, or lower, than the egfr. To get your acutal gfr, have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance. Ask the physician who orders this test to have proteinuria (p) assess in that sample. If p is present, it may needed to be treated.
Hi I only have one kidney hydronephritis cyst and stone in the remaining. Mag3 scan I was not given Lasix (furosemide) does that mean there is no obstruction?
Several meanings: Several reasons for not receiving Lasix (furosemide) during mag3 scan. The first reason is that there was no stasis in kidney and Lasix (furosemide) was not necessary to prove presence or lack of kidney obstruction. Another reason is that function of remaining kidney was so impaired that Lasix (furosemide) was not going to offer any additional information. You should ask your doctor for clarification of study results.
I had urinalysis done tonight because of a kidney stone my one question I have is Squamous Epi Cell normal in the urine I see the normal range is 0-3 and mine was 5-10 what could that mean?
Nothing: I would set nothing by this. It's hard to give a midstream clean-catch urine every time.
What does the term "full" kidney mean in a given result of an ultrasound? But not having to do with urine. My daughter has a small fluid filled cyst on one of her kidneys, she under goes repeated ultrasounds. Now there is an issue ith her other kidney, vi
I: I have heard this term used with fetal ultrasounds - (pyelectasis) which means that there can be dilation of the central part of the kidney. I will change this from unspecified specialty to diagostic radiologist, to get a better chance of getting exact info. I suggest that you ask your doctor what he specifically meant whe using the term "full kidney".
What does it mean if my right kidney hurts and my left one hurts sometimes? I also have foamy and dark urine. And I have sharp heart pain occasionally
Its quite: UNUSUAL to feel "Kidney Pain" unless infected or otherwise abnormal (obstruction, stones, etc) "Foamy and Dark" are very NON-SPECIFIC appearances for urine! @ The sharp "heart pain" is most likely NOT from your heart....people don't describe cardiac pain as pain "in or from" their hearts THUS:" YOU NEED A VISIT TO YOUR PCP (Primary Care Provider) with whom you should discuss these concerns!

Will staying adequately hydrated greatly reduce risk of developing a kidney stone? How big a factor does genetics play? I'm terrified of getting one
Kidney stones: 43 M asks about hydra trio and kidney stones and genetics. ANS: depends on the kind of stones. Some strongly inherited. Look at your family tree. No stones worry less. Tests in stone formers on hydration decreasing stones are not strongly positive. But those who live in hot dry areas more likely too get stones.
Can EPO abuse stop the kidneys from producing their own EPO once drug use is ended I've read plenty of research about erythropoietin abuse by athletes, and there is consensus that one of the big risks is polycythemia and the possibility of strokes, hypert
Yes,: Yes, once exogenously administered erythropoietin is stopped, assuming that the patient's kidneys are normal (where erythropoietin is primarily made), they should resume making erythropoietin on their own. Erythropoietin also known as epo, is a hormone that controls erythropoiesis, or red blood cell production.
