Key Things You Need To Know About Acute Tubular Necrosis
Posted by vivek choudhary on January 14th, 2020
Your kidneys have tiny, tube-like structures called tubules that are responsible for removing salt, superfluous fluids, and waste products from your blood and precipitating its purification. According to a top nephrologist in Gurgaon, the condition of acute tubular necrosis (ATN) comes into being when these tubules undergo damage or destruction. ATN is basically a severe form of kidney injury. The damage so caused may lead to acute kidney failure.
o A constant feeling of drowsiness even in the course of the day
o A feeling of lethargy or being physically drained
o A feeling of excessive thirst
o An experience of dehydration
o Fewer instances of urination or no urination at all
o Retention of fluid inside the body causing a resultant swelling
o An experience of frequent episodes of confusion
o An experience of nausea and vomiting
o The trauma developed because of a recent injury encountered by your body; in particular, the kidneys can cause the development of blood clots or other blockages in the blood vessels leading to your kidneys.
o Because of an adverse reaction following a blood transfusion your body might take to destroying or rejecting the cells of the transfused blood which as a consequence may engender problems if your body doesn’t get an adequate supply of blood to your kidneys.
o A shock sustained because of sepsis can result in a drastic fall in your blood pressure and slacken the circulation of blood in your kidneys – this can prove to be a very dangerous situation assuming that you already suffer from chronic problems of low blood pressure.
o Major surgery may often cause complications as far as blood supply or circulation is concerned.
Note that if ATN is caused because of a different condition, the time taken for you to recover will be conditional on your general health. To get around ATN, treat conditions at Paras, the best hospital in Gurgaon that causes a reduction in the flow of blood and oxygen to the kidneys.
