My uncle was recently diagnosed with Grade 2 Renal Parenchymal disease.
His reports mentioned:

Kidney Size
R-7 cm *3.1 cm
L-6.4 cm * 3.4 cm

with B/L are small in size with EO moderately increase echogenicity with poor cortico / medullary differentiation seen in B/L Kidney.

Impression: grade 2 B/L Renal parenchymal disease.

I want to know how critical the disease is and what treatment is generally prescribed? What should be the diet plan for him?

Thanks.

hi there,
i would like to get the history of your uncle disease first,
what were his initial problems,whats bothering him now
did he take any treatment before
any fever,flank pain history.
your uncle's age

then i would like to run some tests:
renal function tests,urine routine examination
24 hr urine for protein if urine R/E shows proteinuria

creatinine clearance test if urea/creat are high
serum electrolytes.

after these battery of tests we will have some idea of his renal status.
based on ultrasound report ,it looks bad and he needs a nephrologist consultation without further delay,

in diet avoid red meat,high fat content foods
avoid nephrotoxic drugs
avoid bananas,dates

regards
thanks for using ehealth forum
