Most kidney disease patients are most afraid of things is whether the disease will deteriorate? Will it develop to uremia? Kidney physicians are most concerned about any changes that may lead to the progression of kidney function, and doctors must "monitor" these factors at all times to try their best to avoid deterioration of the patient's condition.
No matter what period of kidney disease you are in, it is likely that the previous treatment will be wasted, and may even worsen, if you have a recurrent attack. So in the course of treatment, The factor that affects disease progress can not ignore. How is infection aggravation cause disease aggravation accelerate kidney function progress?
The common infectious factors that cause the recurrence of nephropathy include two categories:
Bacterial infections: such as upper respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, skin infections and other hemolytic streptococcus infections, among which the most frequent are upper respiratory infections, such as colds, tonsillitis, pharyngitis, etc. More bacteria invade the body, and the kidney is damaged by its own weak immunity, and kidney disease itself is an immune disease, infection leads to the accumulation of a large number of immune complex toxoid, will also increase the burden on the kidney.
Virus infection: such as influenza virus, mumps virus, hepatitis virus, and so on. These infectious factors are relatively infectious, and the probability of timely occurrence of general prevention is relatively small. Patients should pay attention to occasions where fewer people are involved. Keep a distance from people with infectious factors.
The reason why nephropathy patients are prone to infection is that, in addition to the low self-constitution and immune function mentioned above, long-term protein leakage causes malnutrition, edema leads to local circulatory disorders, and long-term use of hormones. The side effects of immunosuppressants are also important causes of infection.
When winter flu strikes, patients with kidney disease should pay attention to keeping warm, go to places where there are too many people in public places, wear masks out of the door, pay attention to personal hygiene, wash hands after returning home, pay attention to ventilation by opening windows, and maintain a good air environment; and exercise properly. Improve immunity and resistance; do not share daily necessities with others, such as toothbrushes, razors, etc., avoid cross-virus infections, such as hepatitis and HIV infection; do not stop drugs casually, use drugs randomly, and take hormones strictly according to doctor's orders. An immunosuppressant, etc.
