Renal parenchymal calcification what does it mean please explain?

Renal parenchymal calcification what does it mean please explain?

It could suggest: Congenital kidney conditions such as medullary sponge kidney or could be from conditions that cause elevated calcium level like huperparathyroidism. Google online about nephrocalcinosis/ calcium deposit in the kidney parenchyma or substance vs nephrolithiasis / kidney stone. Read more

In my ultrasound the result says I have a renal parenchymal calcification left what does it mean. Please explain. Thank you?

See below: Renal refers to kidneys; parenchyma is the organ's functioning tissue rather than the ducts & other spaces in the collecting system; calcification suggests a calcium deposit; nephrocalcinosis is another term that includes all 3 concepts. Http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/nephrocalcinosis
lists many conditions that can be associated w/ this finding. Discuss with pcp or nephrologist. Read more

What are the ways of curing RENAL PARENCHYMAL DISEASE?

What are the ways of curing RENAL PARENCHYMAL DISEASE?

Non-specific: I suspect that you may have read the results of a renal ultrasound that mentioned "renal parenchymal disease." This is just a suspicion (not a diagnosis) and must be clinically correlated. All this means in radiology is that your kidney tissue appears more dense than the liver tissue on ultrasound and may be suggestive of some kidney changes. Please see your local nephrologist for clarification. Read more

Could use your help docs! My father is suffering from renal parenchymal?

Could use your help docs! My father is suffering from renal parenchymal?

Renal disease: Your father's diagnosis was obtained from an ultrasound that showed some disease of his kidneys. He needs to see a nephrologist (N) to get a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein to see if he has proteinuria (P) and what his kidney function is. The N will find out if he is hypertension or has diabetes. The ultrasound is interpreted by a radiologist and is, a subjective finding. Read more

Is kub utz finding "renal parenchymal disease, bilateral" a death sentence for me now?

Is kub utz finding "renal parenchymal disease, bilateral" a death sentence for me now?

Renal Echogenicity: The findings on your films are interpreted by a radiologist. They can suggest kidney disease and cannot diagnose its extent. You should see a nephrologist and have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance (cc) and protein and have some blood taken when you return the urine. That will give you a precise picture of what your kidney function is. Interpretations are subjective, a cc is objective. Read more

Can chronic hypokalemia lead to chronic renal parenchymal disease? Why? What's the cure here? Thank you.

Can chronic hypokalemia lead to chronic renal parenchymal disease? Why? What's the cure here? Thank you.

Low K Kidney damage: If BP high yes. It is important to find cause of low K and correct it. This is all I do. Happy to do consult and get you back to health.

Low K can cause you to pee a lot especially at night. This is because low K counteracts your ADH (vasopressin) hormone which help you concentrate your urine at night. Read more

What's the cure for the renal parenchymal disease that was seen in my kub utz? Please explain thoroughly. Thank you.

What's the cure for the renal parenchymal disease that was seen in my kub utz? Please explain thoroughly. Thank you.

Too to tell: Intrinsic renal parenchymal disease on ultrasound is caused by a large variety of diseases. The disease is seen as increased echogenicity of the renal parenchyma caused by scarring and inflammation. The cause requires further evaluation by history, blood work, urinalysis and possibly a kidney biopsy. This should be further evaluated by a nephrologists which is a kidney specialist. Read more

What is diffuse renal parenchymal disease?

What is diffuse renal parenchymal disease?

Kidney Disease: "diffuse" means all over the kidney, "parenchymal" means the solid part of the kidney that filters the liquid waste products out of the blood, and "disease" means something is wrong. Typically "diffuse parenchymal disease" means an overall medical problem with the kidney, such as diabetic nephropathy, or post-streptococcal nephritis. In the pediatric world we use this term slightly differently. Read more

What is chronic renal parenchymal disease?

What is chronic renal parenchymal disease?

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. Read more

I underwent kub utz and the finding is "renal parenchymal disease, bilateral". Is this finding accurate and definitive?

Maybe: Did you have a kidney ultrasound, or just a kub (plain x-ray)? This diagnosis cannot be made by kub alone, but an ultrasound is more definitive. I recommend that you see a nephrologist. Read more

Non-specific: I suspect that you may have read results of a renal ultrasound that mentioned "renal parenchymal disease." This is just a reading (not a diagnosis) and must be clinically correlated. All this means in radiology is that your kidney tissue appears more dense than the liver tissue on ultrasound and may be suggestive of kidney changes. Drink plenty of fluids, keep control of any hypertension/diabetes. Read more

Can a renal ultrasound diagnose renal parenchymal disease?

Can a renal ultrasound diagnose renal parenchymal disease?

Not typically: An ultrasound can suggest radiographic evidence of medical renal disease but cannot diagnose this. To make the diagnosis of renal parenchymal disease the radiographic findings must be combined with blood studies of kidney function and sometimes urine studies for protein or a kidney biopsy.

What's the cure to my hypokalemic periodic paralysis and to my renal parenchymal disease?

What's the cure to my hypokalemic periodic paralysis and to my renal parenchymal disease?

No Cure: Hpp is a genetic disorder--there is no cure. The treatment for some patients is complex but for others taking potassium, beta blockers and additional meds before exercise/stress is all that is required. The renal disease may not be related. Typically patients with periodic paralysis do not have low potassiums between episodes which can cause kidney injury. See a kidney doc for answers. Read more

What does "RENAL PARENCHYMAL DISEASE" in the KUB Ultrasound mean? What's the cure to this?

What does "RENAL PARENCHYMAL DISEASE" in the KUB Ultrasound mean? What's the cure to this?

Here are some. ..: KUB allows Doc to see the configuration & shape - smooth or irregular - of the kidneys; renal US may further confirm the thickness & tissue texture of solid part of kidneys. Together, both give Doc some impression if there has been some prior kidney damage by infection, obstruction, stone, inborn defect, etc. In the kidney. Of course, such findings have to correlate with history + kidney function. Read more

I had kub ultrasound and the finding is "renal parenchymal disease, bilateral". How long will I live?

Renal Disease: You need to be evaluated by a nephrologist (n). A n will order a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein and take blood when you return the collection. This will tell the amount of kidney function you have left and will tell the n if you have a lot of protein in your urine. Once a diagnosis of the cause of you renal disease is made, a prognosis can be made as treatment starts. Read more

My dad's gfr is 60 & he's taking in ketoanalogues. Is his slightly increase renal parenchymal echogenicity & tiny nephrocalcinosis the cause?

My dad's gfr is 60 & he's taking in ketoanalogues. Is his slightly increase renal parenchymal echogenicity & tiny nephrocalcinosis the cause?

Your Dad: Has significant renal failure the imaging discloses what I think is polycystic renal disease which indeed may explain his situation!
Hope this helps!
