In clinic, Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is divided into five stages, according to the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) levels. Stage 1-3 (mild to moderate kidney damage) are common with people with 70 years old.

The prognosis and life expectancy of this kidney disease vary from person to person. It often depends on the severity of any underlying condition. Some patients may have see the illness condition get worse quickly. However, in most cases CKD progresses slowly, and only a few of Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease patients progress to End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), also called Kidney Failure.

How can 70-year old patients with CKD Stage 3 be treated?
The goal of the treatment should include controlling symptoms and improve kidney function.
First of all, symptoms listed above or other risking factors such as high blood sugar levels and high cholesterol levels can be controlled by medicines or diet.
Secondly, to improve kidney function is to treat kidney disease from the root. Over-the-counter medicines cannot achieve that goal, so I recommend patients to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is an external application used on bilateral Shenshu acupoints. Wanna more information? Welcome to leave a message below.
