Causes Of Kidney Disease With A History Of Tuberculosis?
Is it a good idea to continue TB treatment or not?
Hi Deviyulianti. The condition of having high urea and creatinine, especially if accompanied by leakage of protein in the urine which appears on a urine examination, can be said to have chronic kidney disease where there is a decrease in kidney function. This condition is indeed a major risk factor such as diabetes, hypertension is the main one. However, apart from that, the habit of consuming bottled beverages, low consumption of water, long-term alcohol or smoking consumption, history of infection in the kidneys or urinary tract can increase the risk of developing this disorder.
The condition of having foamy urine itself can be caused by the flow of urine that is too fast which collides with the toilet quickly, then due to dehydration or due to protein in the urine which indicates a problem with the kidneys
Consult with your doctor about the conditions your mother is experiencing for treatment and further information. Regarding the history of TB that your mother has, you must consult with your doctor regarding the drug regimen given because TB treatment should not be stopped carelessly because the risk of not recovering and being resistant (germ immunity to drugs) becomes large and makes further treatment difficult. Next about tuberculosis and chronic kidney disease. Consultation is also important as a treatment for kidney problems because if it is due to chronic kidney disease, treatment is based on the severity of the disease. Hopefully helpful, and thank you.
