DMPQ: Write a short note on Kidney Disease and Dialysis

 

  • A person can live a normal, healthy life with just one kidney. However, at least one kidney must function properly to maintain life.
  • Diseases that threaten the health and functioning of the kidneys include kidney stones, infections, and diabetes.
  • Kidney stones are mineral crystals that form in urine inside the kidney. They may be extremely painful. If they block a ureter, they must be removed so urine can leave the kidney and be excreted.
  • Bacterial infections of the urinary tract, especially the bladder, are very common. Bladder infections can be treated with antibiotics prescribed by a doctor. If untreated, they may lead to kidney damage.
  • Uncontrolled diabetes may damage capillaries of nephrons. As a result, the kidneys lose much of their ability to filter blood. This is called kidney failure.
  • The only cure for kidney failure is a kidney transplant, but it can be treated with dialysis. Dialysis is a medical procedure in which blood is filtered through a machine.
