KIDNEY DISEASES AND TREATMENTS

There are a number of treatments, drug and medication options that are available for those who are suffering from kidney failure. The right treatment depends of the precise type of kidney failure, the degree of kidney damage that has occurred, and the point in the disease process when a diagnosis is made.  Steroids are effective for some kidney diseases like minimal change GN. Prescription pharmaceuticals treat several kinds of kidney diseases. Total or near-total kidney failure – end-stage renal failure  or ESRD – demands aggressive treatment. Patients with ESRD must obtain a kidney transplant or receive dialysis.
