None: It means dilation of renal pelvis, a common urological finding on male babies by ultrasound, most resolve without bad effects, sometimes it can suggest things but not cancer some downs syndrome kids have this too, it could be from stones but u/s will show this, most not. Won't affect life unless you smoke than your a at risk for all kinds of cancers like anyone

What is best drug for cystitis if mild renal damage?

What is best drug for cystitis if mild renal damage?

Based on urine cx's: Usually the treatment is based on what the urine culture shows (e.g. What bacteria in the urine is causing the cystitis). Dosages of antibiobitics that can affect renal function will need to be adjusted for degree of kidney insufficiency. However, most of the antibiotics used to treat bacterial cystitis do not have to be adjusted for mild renal damage.

What does it mean to have a mild left renal caliectasis?

Mild kidney swelling: Calices are the major urine ducts between collecting tubules and kidney pelvis, which 'funnel' draining all urine from kidney into the ureter. Mild caliectasis, often diagnosed prenatally, can signify mild partial kidney obstruction from an anatomic narrowing, kidney stoneor infection. Can also be from ureteral obstruction at bladder level or bladder reflux. In itself not serious.

There may: Be no treatment necessary. It may be a transient appearance, may be normal for you, or may be due to mild obstruction. Some further testing might be necessary to determine what's next.

What does mild fullness of the right renal collecting system without definite obstructing calculi mean?

Minimal swelling: Swelling of major urine ducts between collecting tubules and kidney pelvis, which 'funnel' draining all urine from kidney into the ureter. Mild fullness, usually within normal limits. Can signify minimal partial kidney obstruction from an anatomic narrowing, or from infection. Can also be from ureteral obstruction at bladder level, bladder neck ot urethra or bladder reflux or hight urine flow rate.

How bad is having mild bilateral renal parenchymal disease more so in the right what symptoms should I watch that is dangerous. Thank u?

How bad is having mild bilateral renal parenchymal disease more so in the right what symptoms should I watch that is dangerous. Thank u?

Vague: Kidney disease is notorious for causing very vague nebulous symptoms sometimes like, fatigue, insomnia, nausea, decreased appetite, metallic taste in the mouth, etc. Unless someone looks at the blood test results, it might be hard to pin these non-specific symptoms on to kidney failure. I have a more comprehensive list here http://www. Kidneydoctorbradenton. Org/2013/04/what-are-signs-and-symptoms-o.

Leftkidney measures11.3x5.5cms enlarged in size rightkidney 9x5.5cms perapelvic cyst leftkidney causing mild calyectasis. Multiple renal cortical cys?

Multiple kidney cyst: The vast majority of renal cysts and benign simple cysts which are a symptomatic and causes no problems. It is not the same as polycystic kidney disease, where many cysts on both kidneys could lead to kidney failure. An ultrasound can determine if these are simple vs complex cysts, the latter could be worrisome. I suspect the kind you have could simply be followed over time; urologist will guide.

Does anyone else out there have cure for c dif in someone with mild-mod renal failure?

Vancomycin: When given by the oral route, vancomycin is not absorbed so it can be used in renally impaired individuals. The other treatment- Metronidazole - is orally absorbed and excreted through the kidneys.

What is the safest medicine for a senior citizen with mild renal failure to take for uti?

What is the safest medicine for a senior citizen with mild renal failure to take for uti?

Depends: It will depend upon the organism producing the UTI and its sensitivities to antibiotics, and the nature of the UTI (upper v. Lower tract infection, simple v. Complicated, etc.) most of the antibiotics in general use today are safe, and even if they enhance renal insufficiency this is often reversible. Would, however, stay away from aminoglycosides (gentamicin, tobramycin, etc.).

I had an extreme renal colic last week and I was treated at hospital for it but now I am having a mild one since 9 hours and don't know what to do.

I had an extreme renal colic last week and I was treated at hospital for it but now I am having a mild one since 9 hours and don't know what to do.

Stone: Was one or were more renal stones demonstrated by ultrasound or ct scan? If so you may have residual stone causing the colic. Drink lots of fluids and strain all your urine with a filter or handkerchief. If you recover a tiny stone, bring it to the laboratory for analysis. If pain persists or worsens, go back to the hospital emergency room for reevaluation.

Right mild hydronephrosis due to rght renal pevis calculus. Mild prostatomegaly. Small simple corticalcyst. My grandpas sonography results say dis. Help?

Right mild hydronephrosis due to rght renal pevis calculus. Mild prostatomegaly. Small simple corticalcyst. My grandpas sonography results say dis. Help?

Seperate issues: These are three separate and unrelated issues. Prostatic enlargement is exceedingly common and octogenarians. A simple renal cyst is rarely a problem at any age. The non-painful kidney stone possibly could be addressed with minimally invasive procedures such as eswl. You should consult a urologist about the kidney stone.

On crestor (rosuvastatin) for long time, then moved and no one gave it. Started up again and given 5 mg instead of 2.5. 90, mild high bp, some renal damage?

On crestor (rosuvastatin) for long time, then moved and no one gave it. Started up again and given 5 mg instead of 2.5. 90, mild high bp, some renal damage?

Why crestor (rosuvastatin) at 90?: If I am reading it right, you are 90? You feel well? Some low functioning of kidneys =common at 90. I don't think Crestor (rosuvastatin) is offering you any real benefit...It is being used to treat high cholesterol but is that really a concern now? Quality of life should be the focus at this point! I would live on and heck with crestor (rosuvastatin)... Good luck.

Urinalysis: This means you have uroepithelia cells in your urine and some crystals. Likely normal but happy to do 2nd opinion to get more information.

Had kidney renal grade 4 laceration two years ago, now suddenly experiencing a little more than mild pain in the same area can future pains come back?

Had kidney renal grade 4 laceration two years ago, now suddenly experiencing a little more than mild pain in the same area can future pains come back?

Need more info: Anything is possible to cause your complaint and not only a kidney problem. Please make an appt with your family physician to see what he/she has to say. An ultrasound of the kidney may be a good start.

Usual dose of crestor (rosuvastatin) for 90yo with mild elevation of BP and renal damage, high good and bad cholesterol, prior stroke?

Usual dose of crestor (rosuvastatin) for 90yo with mild elevation of BP and renal damage, high good and bad cholesterol, prior stroke?

Crestor (rosuvastatin) Stroke: To a 90 old, who has paid her dues, with hypertension, hyperlipidemia & stroke. I feel, there is no need to give crestor (rosuvastatin). There is more risk than benefit. Crestor (rosuvastatin) dose is also adjusted with kidney function. No crestor (rosuvastatin), to this patient.

29 years old, bilateral cpcs and mild renal dilation in my 19 wk ultrasound. What is my adjusted risk for trisomy 21, 13 and 18?

29 years old, bilateral cpcs and mild renal dilation in my 19 wk ultrasound. What is my adjusted risk for trisomy 21, 13 and 18?

Consult a Fetal: Maternal Medicine specialist if you're worried about the results of your Level 2 targeted fetal ultrasound. Your age & the results of your screens need to be factored in to calculate your risk. Bilateral Choroid Plexus Cysts are seen on 2nd trimester FUS's in 1-2% of healthy fetuses. They usually resorb in all fetuses. Genetic amniocentesis would give you a definitive answer.
