Many patients with kidney disease suffered from colds, diarrhea and other so-called minor ailments before the on setting of the disease; they do not take medicine for the slight illness, resulting in a major problem of the body's immune system. Without enough attention to the cold, has gradually become a major cause of kidney disease. At least 30% of all kidney diseases are induced by one or more colds.
Cold and kidney disease. The symptom of one is in the upper parts while the other is in the lower. How do they get related?
From a medical point of view, the cold itself does not directly lead to nephritis, but colds especially cold caused by hemolytic streptococcus easily induced immune dysfunction in human; if untreated for a long time, the disordered human immune system will attack the normal kidney tissue like they are diseased tissue, leading to acute nephritis; getting not timely treatment will develop into chronic nephropathy. Moreover, a cold will cause upper respiratory tract infection, when pathogens spread downward along the trachea and bronchus, it will develop into the lower respiratory tract infection namely bronchitis and pneumonia, further down, it will develop into the urinary system; many nephropathy was found in a checking for cold.
From the clinical treatment, the lack of knowledge of kidney disease and the lack of attention to kidney disease are the biggest obstacles to the discovery and treatment of chronic kidney disease. Compared with other major diseases, chronic kidney disease is more difficult to detect. It does not show obvious symptoms at the beginning. Many patients already be uremia when they see a doctor. If suffer from a cold, should get treated in time, if abnormal urine color, urine volume change, backache appear, people should go to the regular hospital for examination immediately.
