How to protect my kidneys?
Our kidney has very strong compensatory ability. That’s why some people with only one kidney can also live normally with others. Now, the kidneys are damaged, what you should do is to find the real cause and take medication to protect and improve the remaining kidney function.
Firstly, some conditions like long term of hypertension and diabetes, uncontrolled infection or autoimmune diseases (lupus), environment, food poison, etc, can cause kidney damage. Find the cause and take methods to defeat it.
Secondly, to improve the remaining kidney function can help you live a normal life. I recommend Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Unlike over-the-counter medicines doctor gives you, which can only relieve symptom but cannot solve the underlying problem. We choose traditional Chinese herbs that can improve ischemia and hypoxia inside kidneys. Therefore, renal tissues can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function adequately.
