Diagnosis Patient #6, is going into
RENAL FAILURE Urinalysis Results Elevated Specific Gravity
Presence of Leukocytes Presence of Protein More dissolved particles Indicates tissue damage Indicates filtration has stopped Acidic pH Effects on Body Systems Urinary and Excretory System: Directly since there is chronic infection of the kidney, lead to other diseases of the kidneys; bladder outlet obstruction
Cardiovascular System: Indirectly since causes an inflammation of the saclike membrane that envelops the heart; high blood pressure
Endocrine System: Indirectly leads to diabetes, since there is an excess amount of glucose in the blood. Only one kidney is left to filter the blood; possibly too much waste in the body
Immune System: Lead to immune disorders, such as lupus, IgA nephropathy and scleroderma
Treatment Peritoneal Dialysis Hemodialysis Kidney Transplantation CAPD CCPD Resources Possible Furthur Tests GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate)
CAT scan (Computed Tomography)
Intravenous Pyelogram (IVP)
MRI scans (Magnetic Resonance Imagining)
Kidney Biopsy
Blood tests for BUN (Blood Urine Nitrogen and Creatine)
EGFR (estimated GFR) determined by the MDRD equation
