Hi XXXXXXX

There is usually fat in the center of kidney known as medullary fat and outer part is slightly blackish. If outer part has increased fat then the then it looks hazy.

Similar condition can be seen in renal diseases like renal parenchymal disease, in which serum creatinine and blood urea will increase.

Your blood and urine reports are normal so you need not to worry.USG report is just a normal variant. In addition, few drops of blood may be a transient event. No further evaluation is needed.

Hope you have got answer for your query. Do let me know if you have more concerns.

Thanking you.

Dear Sir,

My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.

She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-

Creatinine - 7.5

Hemoglobin - 8.1

Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL

Urea - 150

Sodium - 131

Potassium - 4.2



What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?

Please help.

Thanks, Kunal
