Genetics in kidney diseases

Depending on the underlying cause, some types of kidney disease can be treated. Often, though, chronic kidney disease has no cure. In general, treatment consists of measures to help control signs and symptoms, reduce complications, and slow progression of the disease. If your kidneys become severely damaged, you may need treatment for end-stage kidney disease. There are four types of medicine that can help people with CKD: Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs), Angiotensin II receptor blockers/antagonists (ARBs),Beta-blockers, Statins. ACEIs, ARBs, and beta blockers-blockers are all types of medicine used to lower blood pressure, but they work in different ways. ACEIs and ARBs may slow kidney damage even in people who do not have high blood pressure. Statins are a type of medicine used to lower cholesterol. Although medicine cannot reverse chronic kidney disease, it is often used to help treat symptoms and complications and to slow further kidney damage. Most people who have chronic kidney disease have problems with high blood pressure at some time during their disease. Medicines that lower blood pressure help to keep it in a target range and stop any more kidney damage. Common blood pressure medicines include: ACE inhibitors, Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs), Beta-blockers, Calcium channel blockers.

Medicines may be used to treat symptoms and complications of chronic kidney disease. These medicines include: Erythropoietin (rhEPO) therapy and iron replacement therapy (iron pills or intravenous iron) for anemia. Medicines for electrolyte imbalances. Diuretics to treat fluid buildup caused by chronic kidney disease,  ACE inhibitors and ARBs.
