No. The damage done to the kidney is not reversible, but there are ways through which you can stop the damage from worsening. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) can be managed but not cured, while acute kidney injury, also known as acute renal failure, can be reversed to restore kidney function.
The National Kidney Foundation states that the progression of CKD can be slowed down if it is detected and treated early. If you observe any symptoms of the condition, you can consult your doctor and get your tests done.
The treatment of chronic kidney disease depends on its stage. There are few ways by which the condition can be stopped from worsening. It includes lifestyle changes such as incorporating physical activity in your daily life and having a healthy and balanced diet. You must take proper medicines to control associated problems like high cholesterol, high blood pressure (hypertension), etc. If a person is at an advanced stage of chronic kidney disease, their doctor may suggest dialysis. The last resort is a kidney transplant if the kidney has failed.
