Recovering nephrons?

Postby kiran » Fri Jul 01, 2005 6:49 am

:cry: I had my operation done of my kidney coz my rt one was severely damaged and doctors said it had ceased to work. To their great surprise I had made an dramatic recovery. What i wanted to know is that how fast the older and damaged nephrons are replaced? I am just very much puzzled!
tell me........

Well, I think that it depends on each organism's recovering speed. There's no exact time to be measured about the organ's recovery speed..

Victor is right.. In some people they are not replaced at all...

This is my hypothesis about that:
The factors that can determine on the recovery speed are:
-Cell and tissues (including their respond speed to proteins)
-Nutrition and digestive system
-Coordinate systems (nerves and hormones)
-Cerebrum, cerebellum, and MO. (central system)

Actually the first thing is from the regeneration of the cells and tissues which is supplied by the nutrition from digestive system, supervised by hormones, giving responds by nerve system and all of them is controlled (or maybe stimulated) by the central system.
Just remember that willingness to be fully healed is supporting the cure also as a stimulus to the central system.
Hope this can be a little proof.. :lol:
