I have high BP and recently gone through Ultra sound and find my left kidney is (12.2cm) and right one is (8.8cm) and did CBC and 24Hrs urine culture, So VMA is normal and Protein Total is around 315 rest Urinary Volume is 3500. So do let me know does my Right Kidney is not working or its a VUR? Does it is curable ? Currently I am taking Asomex 2.5 and Telma H 40 and Astrvastine.
More* Doctor says due to Balder Flap the Urine is reflux and damaging and suggested me to do MCU and DTPA Test, please suggest how painful these tests?
The normal kidney size of an adult human is about 10 to 13 cm (4 to 5 inches) long and about 5 to 7.5 cm (2 to 3 inches) wide.
Normally urine flows out of the kidney with low pressure. If this flow pattern is disrupted by presensce of abnormal flap within the urinary tract, it results in dilation of the kidney placing increasing pressure on the delicate internal structures of the central urine collecting system, resulting in damage and loss of function of the kidney.
Since this is a anatomic issue, medications usually are not helpful to cure the condition. Medications may be used only to treat symptoms or complications (like infections) associated with the condition.
The tests that have been recommended to you are not associated with pain.
