There is no doubt that treatment should be based on the real causes. You need persistent test to make a diagnosis. In our hospital, we mainly use traditional Chinese medicines to treat kidney disease and diabetes. The main function of these herbs is to improve blood circulation by expanding blood vessels, fight against inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes. Thereby, kidney function increases and protein can be reabsorbed effectively and proteinuria disappears naturally.
