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.

What's the cure to my kub ultrasound finding "renal parenchymal disease, bilateral"?

See a Nephrologist. This is a non specific finding that just indicates presence of possible chronic kidney disease (ckd). See a nephrologist who can determine why this happened and suggest a course of treatment. Read more...

What's the cure to the kub ultrasound finding which reads "renal parenchymal disease, bilateral"?

Renal parenchymal dz. Renal parenchymal disease is a phrase usually listed in reports from imaging studies, it is an imaging finding. If you truly have an imaging abnormality it does imply having chronic kidney disease (ckd). With only the phrase renal parenchymal disease, we can't guess on what stage of ckd a person has or the cause of the damage. You need to know what the cause of the abnormality is to treat it.

See answer. Renal parenchymal disease – often called medical renal disease – is a diagnosis made by ultrasound when there is increased echogenicity in the functioning renal tissue, and this correlates with impaired renal function. This finding should be correlated with renal function studies/ laboratory exams, and discussed with your dr. If it is not consistent, then perhaps repeat the us to make certain. Read more...

Renal parenchymal disease in kub ultrasound! Oh my god, oh my god! What is this? Oh boy! Please help!

Don't panic. This may be an overcall, or the first warning that your high blood pressure's catching up to you, or old/recent pyelonephritis / interstitial nephritis. I'm more worried about whether your creatinine is appropriate for your degree of musculature, whether there is more than a trace of protein in your urine, and whether you can concentrate your urine above sg 1.020.

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...
Don't worry yet. Please see a nephrologist. Usually this can happen with hypertension or diabetes but there are a host of causes. It depends on how much disease there is and if it would be reversible. You probably need some lab tests, or even kidney biopsy to determine treatment, diet changes, ect. Even if you need dialysis or transplant there are people living for a long time on those. So don't worry yet. Read more...

When can we consider kub ultrasound finding "renal parenchymal disease" significant or insignificant? Please explain.

Depends. This is a non specific finding indicating possible kidney disease. See a doc to have your renal function checked. Read more...
See answer. Renal parenchymal disease is a general term used when the renal cortex has increased echogenicity compared to the liver and is possibly thinned on an ultrasound exam. It often correlates with impaired renal function. It can be somewhat subjective in interpretation, especially in mild degrees. Discuss this with your doctor. Read more...

If I have increased renal echogenicity in my kub ultrasound, do I already have renal parenchymal disease? Thank you. Pls. Explain. Please.

Need more info ... Before you become more anxious. Yes, it is true that increased renal echogenicity on us can indicate medical renal disease. But - that imaging finding needs to be correlated with laboratory tests of renal function and review of other diseases and medicines the patient may have. Please see your doctor and ask about this finding. A consult with a nephrologist (kidney specialist) may be useful. Read more...

Renal disease. You should see a nephrologist for a 24 hour urine collection. An ultrasound reading is subjective and may vary from radiologist to radiologist. A 24 hour urine will get you a objective reading of how well, or poorly, your kidneys are working. Blood work taken by that doctor may also give a diagnosis of the cause of your kidney disease and provide a way to start its treatment. Good luck. Read more...

What are the best tests to accurately measure renal function and to rule out kub ultrasound finding "renal parenchymal disease"? Thank you.

Serum creatinine . Is helpful blood test to evaluate renal function. Renal parenchymal disease means scarring in the kidney however the ultrasound is highly operator dependent and results may vary on subsequent tests. My advice if your blood test are normal than ultrasound findings can be ignored. See a nephrologist if you are overly concerned for reassurance. Thanks. Read more...
Renal disease. Is evaluated by urine analysis and calculation of GFR with that information combined with the history, physical, and understanding of a patient's potential for underlying conditions which predispose to renal disease. Imaging (ultrasound, nuclear medicine, ct, mri) is used not to make the diagnosis but to add further information in those patients in whom it is appropriate to do so. Read more...

In my kub ultrasound, the result is renal parenchymal disease, bilaterally, and renal cortical cyst, bozniak ii. My creatinine is ok. Will I die now?

Not likely. Poorly treated high blood pressure is a common association with renal parenchymal disease. You should have your blood pressure checked, and if elevated properly treated. Intravenous drug abuse is also associated with the condition. Prior kidney infections are another possibility. You should have a renal evaluation to rule out other conditions such as glomerulonephritis. Read more...
Not from kidney dz. The medical parenchymal disease sounds like scarring of kidney. Make sure your blood pressure is perfect and you are not taking ibuprofen. The renal cyst is a fluid filled sack in the kidney. They are common. Bosniak 2 is a cyst with a septation or calcium deposit. A 2a cyst is begn and does not need follow up. A 2b cyst needs follow up because a small percentage can turn into renal cancers. Read more...
