Ms. Teng, 32, runs a hot and spicy hot shop, which is usually very busy, and she has no time to pay attention to her body.
More than half a month ago, Ms. Teng suddenly felt ill and tired.
I cough during the day and at night, and I cant lie down at all. I cant sleep normally. I cough as soon as I lie down, and my legs are itchy. I thought I had a cold. I went to the hospital near my home and took antibiotics for more than 20 days, but the symptoms still did not alleviate, so I went to the hospital for examination.
When they came to the First Affiliated Hospital of Heilongjiang University of Traditional Chinese Medicine for examination, doctors found that Ms. Tengs creatinine had reached 700 umol/L.
What is this concept?
Luan Zhongqiu, deputy director of Nephrology Department of the First Affiliated Hospital of Heilongjiang University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said that Ms. Tengs creatinine was far beyond the target. Her kidney had been damaged and her condition was serious. She was diagnosed with uremia and needed immediate hospitalization.
There is another similar case.
Xiaofeng, a 20-year-old College student, grew fatter than his peers from an early age, especially enjoying high-calorie foods such as hamburgers, French fries, fried chicken and cola.
After going to college, Xiaofeng, who had no parents to look after, often ordered takeaway, did not exercise after eating, and soared to 120 kilograms. In the physical examination organized by the school last semester, Xiaofeng was found to have albuminuria, and his face and lower limbs showed edema symptoms.
Doctors found that Xiaofengs urine protein was actually three plus signs. After kidney biopsy, it was diagnosed as nephrotic syndrome and obesity-related glomerular hypertrophy. And all this is caused by obesity.
On March 14, nephrologists from the First Affiliated Hospital of Heilongjiang University of Traditional Chinese Medicine launched a free clinic. Most of the citizens who come to the free clinic are over 50 years old. Many of them have symptoms of fatigue, lumbar acid, low back pain, increased nocturia and lower limb edema. About 70% of the citizens who come to the free clinic need to go to the hospital for a systematic check-up to see if they have nephrotic syndrome.
Relevant data show that there are about 100 million patients with nephropathy in China. Many patients with chronic kidney disease have no symptoms in the early stage, or only slight eyelid and ankle edema, which has not attracted attention. When they see a doctor, they are often in a serious condition.
Doctors say that chronic kidney disease may be fatigue, fatigue, waist pain and lumbago in the early stage. There are more and more foam in urine, increased urine protein excretion, hematuria, increased nocturia, recurrent eyelids or lower extremity edema, unexplained anemia, pruritus, cramps, gingival bleeding, unexplained loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, and decreased urine volume.
Li Jinyu, director of Nephrology Department of Heilongjiang Hospital Affiliated to Harbin University of Technology, said that the kidney is an important organ of the human body. The kidney can discharge excess water and metabolic waste from the body. At present, the prevalence of chronic kidney disease among adults in China is 10.8%, while the awareness rate is only 12.5%.
Smoking, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease or stroke, family history of nephropathy, obesity and so on are all high-risk groups for chronic kidney disease. Although early chronic kidney disease has no symptoms, if detected early, it can delay or even prevent the occurrence of renal failure.
Doctors suggest that metabolic diseases (hyperuricemia, hyperlipidemia), long-term use of nephrotoxic drugs, long-term diseases (chronic urinary tract infection, urinary tract obstruction), poor lifestyle (high protein diet) are also the main factors affecting renal function, which should be paid attention to.
For kidney diseases, the most important treatment is early prevention and treatment. Essential hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, hyperuricemia and other high-risk groups need to control the primary disease, including those with family history of nephropathy, the elderly over 65 years old, and those who take long-term nephrotoxic drugs, and strengthen monitoring and intervention.
