Tonsil is one of the living organs of human immune system, which is located at the intersection of digestive tract and respiratory tract. Tonsil can produce lymphocytes and antibodies, so it has the defense function of anti-bacterial and anti-virus.
As an ordinary person we often encounter tonsil inflammation, usually take some medicine to solve the symptoms of inflammation. However, patients with kidney disease cannot easily take drugs because of damage to their kidney function and are afraid of increasing the burden of kidney metabolism. Accelerate the progression of uremia. Therefore, tonsillitis in patients with nephropathy is a problem.
Some people say that tonsils are the first line of defense of the human body, and that removal of tonsils can affect the immune function of the human body, while others think that removing tonsils may affect local immune function. Tonsils may be removed if the tonsil is removed.
Whether the tonsils are inflamed or not. Tonsils are a double-edged sword that affects the human body. Tonsils can produce antibodies and lymphocytes that have protective effects on the human body, and can trigger local and even systemic infections when the immune response is excessive. At this point, tonsils can do more harm than good to patients with nephropathy, so consider removing them.
Tonsils shrink. Tonsils shrink with age, and function naturally declines. If children or adolescents with kidney disease develop tonsillitis, it's better to wait. Observe if inflammation occurs after atrophy. If so, remove it, and if not, keep it.
In many kinds of nephropathy, only the patients with repeated hematuria of LGA nephropathy and patients with acute streptococcal nephritis are closely related to tonsillitis. The relationship between other types of nephropathy and tonsil is closely related to that of tonsillitis. Only affected by inflammation. If there is no clear causal relationship between the two, You can't remove it at will.
Tonsillectomy is only a temporary solution to the triggers that cause local inflammation, not a fundamentally resolved condition. Even after tonsillectomy, patients should continue to undergo immunomodulation therapy to regulate the workload of their kidneys. Keep lowering blood pressure, etc.
