Good afternoon, Mr / Ms Doctor

1 Answer:

Hello Akhsin, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Based on the results of an ultrasound performed on your parents, it is indeed found that there are abnormalities in both kidneys which form the tissues of both kidneys becoming denser and the boundary between the outer layer (cortex) and inner layer (medulla) of the kidney becomes more blurred even though its size can still be classified into normal size, and no other abnormalities were found in other organs in the abdominal cavity.


Because of the finding of the kidney picture, based on radiological standards on the results of ultrasound, the picture has met the criteria to be declared as the presence of stage 3 CKD (chronic kidney failure) in both kidneys accompanied by an enlarged stage 1 kidney in the right kidney.


Translating the results of this ultrasound will not change the therapeutic recommendations for your parents where dialysis is the best option that can be recommended. It should also be understood that kidney function due to chronic kidney failure (kidney failure that has lasted a long time) will not return to normal despite blood dialysis and medication, so the current recommended therapy is to help replace the lost kidney function and maintaining the remaining kidney function so that the damage is not getting worse.


I hope this helps.
