A lot of people, and even patients with kidney disease itself, there is a misunderstanding of the kidney, which is likely to lead to some very serious cases, such as delay. Here to talk about, people in the understanding of kidney disease, what are the errors:
Myth: kidney deficiency = kidney disease
This is the most common mistake, kidney deficiency is the statement of Chinese Medicine, here the so-called "kidney", not only including the kidney, also including digestive system, urinary system, reproductive system, nervous system, respiratory system, is a comprehensive concept. Kidney deficiency is more of a deficiency caused by infirm, not necessarily kidney problems.
In the same way, kidney disease does not necessarily appear to be a sign of kidney deficiency, some of kidney disease, such as the initial stage of chronic nephritis, have few symptoms. The most common symptoms of kidney disease, also is not the same with kidney deficiency, such as edema, hypertension, urinary protein and occult blood.
Error two: blood, urine routine examination
Some people think that blood, urine routine examination as long as it is normal, it shows that there is no kidney disease, which is a common misunderstanding. For example, chronic nephritis, abnormal urine or edema is usually intermittent, and the performance was very not obvious, may the check is positive, but the next check is negative. Even some people only checked once, the result is negative, and no longer check, and other symptoms appeared, it has developed into chronic renal failure.
You should know, the human body is not for no reason at all edema or high blood pressure, even if the symptoms are mild, there must be a reason, ignore is the biggest mistake.
Myth three: kidney problems
As the most important metabolic organ of the human body, once the kidney problems, it will affect other organs, the most typical is the impact on the heart, many kidney disease patients will appear heart failure. In addition, the contraction and relaxation of the renal microvascular can directly regulate the peripheral vascular resistance, thereby affecting blood pressure, which is often accompanied by hypertension in patients with kidney disease.
Therefore, patients with kidney disease must pay attention to observe other symptoms, pay attention to the occurrence of complications.
Myth four: abnormal urine
The so-called abnormal urine, refers to proteinuria and hematuria. Many people think that hematuria is red urine, which is wrong. Most hematuria is microscopic hematuria, only under the microscope can be observed. If the urine color becomes red, it is already very serious hematuria, known as gross hematuria.
Proteinuria is not easy to see with the naked eye, but if the protein is too much, the urine will appear a lot of bubble and not easy to disappear, like beer, this time can be judged by the naked eye.
But not all dark urine are hematuria, may also be because the spleen and stomach caused by fire, namely fire.
Not all hematuria is caused by kidney disease, cystitis or urethritis can cause hematuria, and even the naked eye hematuria, attention should be paid to identify.
Myth five: edema
Some people get up in the morning to see eye swelling, thought it was the performance of kidney disease, but it may also be too much water caused by.
Edema of the lower leg is also a common symptom of kidney disease, but sometimes leg fatigue can also produce calf edema.
Therefore, when there is edema, be sure to do other related checks, in order to confirm. Do not ignore, so as not to miss the best treatment time.
Kidney disease is very headache, especially chronic kidney disease, early symptoms are not obvious, it is easy to ignore, once found, most of them have developed into renal failure. The best way is go to the hospital for regular blood routine, urine routine examination,not spend a lot of money, but they can advance the diagnosis of many diseases, is worth promoting preventive measures.
