Kidney Problems Treatment


You have two kidneys, but can survive with just one if you have kidney problems. Your internal medicine specialist at Century Medical and Dental Center first has to diagnose your kidney issues before offering treatment. There are many ailments that can affect your kidneys, and treating kidney problems is more successful with early detection. So call your Brooklyn doctor soon for an evaluation of your kidneys.

Your kidneys can stop functioning properly for several reasons. You may have chronic kidney disease, which is only now starting to show pronounced symptoms. If this is true, it means the damage to your kidneys has accumulated over the years to the point that it’s now so bad, that it can’t be reversed. In time, the condition of your kidneys worsens, leading to total kidney failure.

Alternatively, you may have a kidney infection. In this scenario, bacteria travel up from the urethra, through the bladder and into your kidneys. A kidney infection requires immediate medical assistance. Visit your doctor at Century Medical and Dental Center in Brooklyn to get effective kidney infection treatment.

Another kidney problem involves kidney stones. This common ailment, more likely in men than women, can cause back pain, especially lower back pain. Most kidney stones are small and eventually pass when you urinate. But some can get stuck in the ureter, which can cause pain and sometimes blood to leak out while you urinate.

Causes of Kidney Problems

Diabetes and hypertension are the leading causes of kidneys that develop problems. Obesity, cardiovascular disease and smoking also stress your kidneys. If you’re over 60 years old and are African American, Hispanic, Native American or Asian, you are considered a high-risk candidate.

Heredity may also mark you for kidney problems. If your parents, siblings or other close relatives have suffered from kidney problems, your risks increase. Other medical conditions that can harm your kidneys include:

  • Glomerulonephritis, a type of inflammation inside your kidneys
  • Interstitial nephritis, a different internal kidney inflammation
  • Polycystic kidney disease, in which cysts form inside your kidneys
  • Enlarged prostrate, which may stop your kidneys from voiding waste
  • Vesicoureteral reflux, in which urine flows back toward your kidneys
  • Recurrent kidney infections that cause inflammation and other issues
  • Autoimmune disease like lupus, which can cause kidney failure
  • Birth defects such as kidney dysplasia, which usually affects just one kidney
  • Hepatitis C, which can cause kidney disease

Symptoms of Kidney Problems

When you feel pain in your side around your middle back or lower back area, it’s time to visit your internal medicine doctor. Depending on your other symptoms, you may have just a urinary tract infection, or it may signal a more serious kidney infection. Bleeding in the kidneys or blood clots also cause kidney pain.

Getting the appropriate kidney pain treatment requires an accurate diagnosis that identifies the exact cause behind the pain. Signs your kidneys aren’t working normally include:

  • Persistent itching
  • Muscle cramps
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swelling in your feet and ankles
  • Your bladder creates too much or too little urine
  • Shortness of breath
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Chest pain
  • Cloudy or smelly urine
