My ultrasound said abnormal resistive index on r kidney suggesting medical renal disease or renal stenosis. My kidney blood levels were all low?

My ultrasound said abnormal resistive index on r kidney suggesting medical renal disease or renal stenosis. My kidney blood levels were all low?

High Resistive Index: I have two questions, why did your doctor order a resistive index on you? Do you have hypertension (BP) that is difficult to control? If you do not have any bp, then you likely do not have a renal artery stenosis (ras). If you do have bp, you may need a renal artery angiogram to see if your BP is caused by a ras. See a nephrologist for more answers. Good luck. ...Read more

How do you define end-stage renal disease?

How do you define end-stage renal disease?

See Below: End stage renal disease is stage five ckd or GFR 15 or less. Dialysis is started when the function of the kidneys is inadequate to remove the metabolic byproducts of metabolism. In practice this is usually determined by measuring gfr. Most people have to start dialysis when GFR drops to 10-15 though it may have to be started higher or lower than that. ...Read more

How to control phorphorus during renal disease?

How to control phorphorus during renal disease?

Phosphorus control: If you are talking about reducing elevated phosphorus (P) levels in patients with kidney failure, P levels are brought down by two drugs. One is P binders that prevent P from being absorbed in the intestine. If those patients have high parathyroid hormone levels (PTH), drugs like cinacalcet reduce serum P levels by preventing it and calcium from being liberated from the bone by PTH. ...Read more
