As the name implies, Chronic Kidney Failure is a slowly progressive disease. It is divided into five stages in clinic, according to the severity. GFR (glomerular filtration rate) and Scr (serum creatinine) can be the indicators. There are some treatment for Chronic Kidney Failure. In general, traditional treatment is to treat kidney disease by treating the symptoms or complications. For example:
This is the first way to treat Chronic Kidney Failure in the early stages. If the kidneys are mildly damaged, patients may just slight swelling. On this condition, the doctor will prescribe some diuretics to increase the urine output so as to filter the excessive fluids.
Then, patients will also take some medicines to lower high blood pressure. These medicines are usually ACEIs (Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors) , ARBs (Angiotensin Receptor Blockers) and beta blockers.
Antibiotics are used to treat infections caused by accumulation of wastes and toxins.
The above is just a part of medicines used in treating Chronic Kidney Failure. You should consult your doctor about the dosage and frequency of the drugs. Tell he or she what other medicines you are taking in case of some bad interactions among them.
Dialysis is needed when symptoms or complication is too severe to be control. Doctor will elevate the patient’s creatinine level, GFR, and kidney function to decide whether to take dialysis. There are two types of dialysis: Peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD). Normally, dialysis can prolong the patient’s life to 3-5 years.
3. Kidney transplant
Kidney transplant is taken when the kidneys lose almost all the functions. If there is no rejection, kidney transplant can make a better outcome than dialysis.
Compared with dialysis and kidney transplant, this therapy is more natural and can solve the underlying problems of Chronic Kidney Failure. However, this therapy is for those who still have remaining kidney function. This therapy is to help repair the intrinsic renal cells so as to enhance the ability of kidneys to repair themselves.
This therapy has been proved to be very effective by decades years of clinic practices. You can consult our doctor online for more detailed information. Or you can leave a message below, and we will reply ASAP.
