Five Accelerators for Kidney Aging

2018-11-14 09:56

Five Accelerators for Kidney AgingUnder normal physiological conditions, the kidney does not begin to decline until about the age of 40, and from then on renal function begins to decline year by year.

But the problem is that even when the kidneys are failing, we're hard to recognize, and some people in their 20s and 30s have kidneys in their 40s and 50s.

In addition to congenital immature kidney development, the following factors are also accelerators of renal aging, which can seriously lead to renal failure.

1. Proteinuria

The presence of proteinuria, which indicates damage to the kidneys, also accelerates kidney failure and is a major factor in accelerated aging of the kidneys.

Some patients may pay attention to the observation of foam in the urine, but need to be confirmed by a urine test.

2. High blood pressure

Once the blood pressure rises, the burden on the kidney will be increased. The overload of work will not only lead to premature aging of the kidney and accelerate the decline of the kidney, but also cause kidney damage, which will lead to increased blood pressure and a vicious circle.

Therefore, it is particularly important for hypertension patients to adhere to medication and make blood pressure meet the standard.

3. Diabetes

Although there are about 2 million nephrons in the human body, if the blood sugar control is not good, the filtration burden of the kidney is increased, and over time, more and more nephrons will be exhausted at work.

Therefore, blood sugar control can be achieved to slow kidney aging and avoid damage.

4. Medication

Most of the drugs we take require kidney excretion, which can increase the burden on the kidneys to some extent. Some drugs can directly damage the kidney, causing acute renal failure, while some drugs take years before renal failure.

For example, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Long-term use can lead to renal function decline.

5. Lifestyle

Bad habits such as staying up late, getting infected, smoking and drinking alcohol can accelerate the deterioration and damage of the kidneys and other organs.
