Although Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD) can be caused by primary disease of the kidneys themselves, it is most often a secondary effect of diseases like diabetes, hypertension, HIV, lupus, etc.
Diabetes is the primary disease most often associated with Kidney disease, That’s because elevated blood sugars over time can impair blood flow to the kidneys, causing damage. People with both Type 1 diabetes (once called juvenile onset) and Type 2 diabetes (once called adult onset, but now also increasingly common among preteens and teenagers) are at high risk for Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD) and should be tested regularly.
Uncontrolled high blood pressure can cause kidney damage over time.
Hardening of the arteries and the formation of plaque in the arteries that supplies the kidneys causes ischemic nephropathy, which can result in progressive kidney damage.
This disease causes inflammation and damage to the kidney filtration system and can result in kidney failure. Glomerulonephritis can be caused by lupus and from infections that follow injury or surgery.
An enlarged prostate often obstructs the flow of urine and may therefore possibly cause kidney stones.
Polycystic Kidney Disease
This is a hereditary disease that may cause cysts in both kidneys.
Long-term use of analgesics like acetaminophen (Tylenol®) and ibuprofen (Motrin®, Advil®) may cause CKD.
HIV infection, sickle cell anemia, heroin abuse, amyloidosis, chronic kidney infections and certain types of cancer can also cause CKD.
Reversible factors contributing to CKD It is possible that the following reversible components of renal insufficiency can be corrected especially in older persons (over 70) and in children:
- Nephrotoxic agents such as acetaminophen and non steroidal analgesics
- Obstruction, especially chronic prostate enlargement and stric¬tures.
- Reduction of blood pressure to 130/80 mm Hg. or better
Renadyl™ | Probiotic for Kidney Health
Renadyl™ is a patented and proprietary probiotics dietary supplement that has been scientifically formulated and clinically tested. Renadyl™ metabolizes nitrogenous waste that has diffused from the bloodstream into the bowel. Nitrogenous wastes are utilized by Renadyl™ as nutrients. As probiotics grow and multiply, they consume more nitrogenous waste and therefore effectively help maintain healthy kidney function. The nitrogenous metabolites are eliminated as solid waste/fecal matter.
