Kidney inflammation (or pyelonephritis) is an infectious disease that bacterial pathogens (most commonly E. coli) usually cause. As a result of the inflammatory lesion, blood filtration can be impaired, and other health problems can arise. This inflammatory disease is one of the common kidney pathologies. Women are significantly more likely to suffer from it (6 times more often than men).

If you want to cure kidney inflammation in Kyiv, sign up for a consultation with urologist Sergii Liulko. An experienced doctor at the urological center will conduct ultrasound diagnostics and draw up an optimal treatment plan.
Kidney inflammation symptoms
Acute pyelonephritis has pronounced symptoms. Typical manifestations of this inflammatory disease include:

• pain in the lower back, side, or lower back;
• increased urge to urinate, including at night;
• changes in the color of urine, the occurrence of sediment in it;
• the appearance of slight swelling of the lower extremities;
• feeling of thirst;
• indigestion (nausea and vomiting);
• general weakness;
• an increase in body temperature, often up to 39 C.

Inflammation of the kidneys can occur against the background of other pathologies of the genitourinary organs, including cystitis (in women) or prostatitis (in men).

If severe symptoms characterize acute pyelonephritis, then chronic pyelonephritis can proceed sluggishly and without distinct manifestations. Moreover, due to the lack of apparent complaints, patients often postpone the visit to the urologist. However, without treatment, the risks of complications increase, namely:

• purulent inflammation of the kidneys;
• arterial hypertension;
• renal failure;
• blood poisoning;
• renal necrosis, etc.
Diagnostics of the pyelonephritis
To confirm or deny kidney inflammation, the urologist needs to interview the patient and conduct an examination, including palpation under the ribs. The presence of characteristic soreness when tapping with the edge of the palm on the side could indicate the presence of an inflammatory process.

For diagnostic laboratory tests are carried out, including urine and blood tests. Additionally, an ultrasound of the kidneys can be performed.
Treating kidney inflammation
The surgeon-urologist Liulko selects the treatment tactics individually, taking into account the form and stage of the disease and the presence of contraindications. The primary method is conservative therapy with antibiotics, antipyretic drugs, and antispasmodics. Additionally, physiotherapy and diet are recommended.

In case of complications of pyelonephritis, surgery may be indicated using modern minimally invasive methods of treatment.
