Hello
Thanks for writing to us

Only abnormality is bilateral mildly small kidneys.It may be just a anatomical variation.It may be due to many reasons like developmental,height,race related etc.Since other factors are alright,it is not a matter of concern.
Echotexture of both kidneys and cortico-medullary differentiation is alright.
There is no calculus or hydronephrosis noted in either kidneys.
Parenchymal thickness is also normal.

Get well soon.
Take Care

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

BACKGROUND ON CONDITION -PART 1: Blood Tests My mother has many ailments and is now developing kidney disease symptoms. Below are the blood test readings that are out of normal range. This is something fairly new and emerging for my mother. BLOOD TEST READINGS THAT LAB SHOWS OUT OF NORMAL RANGE Glucose serum 10.3 Creatinine 102 eGFR 46 Cholesterol 6.21 Triglycerides 2.27 Hemogl AIC 0.06 HDL cholesterol 1.27 Non-HDL cholesterol 4.94 WBC 11.5 Lymphocytes 4.14 Monocytes 0.92 Eosinophils 0.46 Leukocyte small -Part 2: Medical History Fibromyalgia Diabetes Arthritis May have moderate chronic kidney disease Had triple bypass heart surgery ~2001 Has disc degenerative disease -PART 3: Symptoms As you will note in the medical history, my mother also has a host of other ailments. I am providing a highlight of her other symptoms to provide an overall picture of her health. - Blood sugar levels, especially in the morning are generally in the 10-12.5 range on her meter. (The normal level to target for on her meter is 6-7.) -She has had neck and head pain for many years – now it is constant (7 x 24). It is her most troublesome symptom. Chronic back pain. -Her depression is worsening; her doctor is switching her from celexa to cipralex (10mg) but she has not yet started it. -She has pain through out her body. -She gets no to very little sleep each night. Last 10 nights, though, she did get some sleep. -She has no energy. -She has frequent bouts of diahhrea (eg. 2 times per month) and constipation. She has a stomach ache most of the time – it begins in the morning. -She has mucus in nose, mouth and sometimes feels it in her head. Doctors are attributing this to sinus blockages but use of sinus stick has not helped thus far. -Little appetite QUESTIONS NEEDING RESPONSE Please advise if her kidney condition is reversible and/or what steps should be taken immediately to slow down kidney degeneration. -Will better control of blood sugar help? If so, how do we do that since she is already tightly managing her diet. -She has recently reduced her Glucophage / metformin intake from 1 tablet 3 times a day to 1 table once a day. She did that because we heard that metformin contributed to kidney problems. Would you concur with that? If there is anything else that you can see that could help her overall health, please let us know. Particularly, if you could point us to the specialties to consult regarding the head pain (likely due to disk degeneration in neck), would appreciate.

I have a 4 year old daughter who has had problems for the past 2 1/2 years and know can figure out what is wrong with her. Her symptoms started when she was 2 years old and she would cry that her back hurt in her car seat, so we tried 5 different car seats and she still complained. Then it progressed to her back hurting when she would be runnin, playing and sleeping. Now that she is older she can describe her symptoms more detailed. She has a hot sensation in her back and feet, she has parasthesis of bilateral legs and incontinence of urine and stool and belly pain. She is followed by a Neurology, GI, Nephrology, Urology, Nuerosurgery, Orthopedics, Pain service, Pain Psychologist and know can figure out what is wrong. She has had 2 MRI (normal), 2 CT scans (normal), Lasix scan (normal), Nuclear bone scan (normal), VCUG (normal), ultrasounds (hydronephrosis), urodynamic studies ( abnormal- showed multiple bladder spasms), multiple blood test and urine studies ( 2 24 hour urine studies showed high protein and urea 3rd was normal but not 24 hour) and Upper GI showed gastritis. Any ideas??

Lab results indicated blood in my urine. I have pain in my flanks and have been producing flake-like substances in my urine. My doctor ordered a CT scan and no kidney stones are visible. Any idea what this could be. The pain has been occurring for 1 week now.

I have a history of kidney stones. when i went to an urgent care the doctor saw a calcification in my bladder via xray. He also did an ultrasound which showed hydronephrosis. He put me on antibiotics incase I developed an infection. I saw my urologist and had another xray done which showed that the stone was gone. I am still having alot of pain on my right back/side and I am concerned about the hydonephorisis. I don t know if I need to go back to the doctor or if It s just sore because of everything it s been through.
