Typically "diffuse parenchymal disease" means an overall medical problem with the kidney, such as diabetic nephropathy, or post-streptococcal nephritis.

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

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

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.

CKD 2, not poisoned: Stage 2 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) means your kidney filtration rate is between 60 and 90 (greater than 90 is the goal). The lab tests done are an "estimate" and you should see a kidney specialist for a full evaluation before you start worrying. The kidney specialist can do a work up to determine your actual filtration level, and if abnormal, help you determine the cause. ...Read more

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

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
