It is the most commonly used treatment for kidney failure patients. It can take over part of renal function to filter waste products and extra fluid from body, but it can not replace your kidneys totally, and you have to go to dialysis center severe times a week, which is really boring. Besides, during dialysis, you may experience some side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, headache, skin itching, muscle cramping, etc.

Kidney transplant

If you can find out a donor, this will be a good choice for you. After kidney transplant, you can lead a relatively normal life. But you may have to take immunosuppressants for long-term to prevent kidney rejection. Those medications may cause diabetes, cancer, infections, and some other severe problems. What is worse, the transplanted kidney only survives several years. That is to say, years later, you have to do dialysis or kidney transplant again.

Toxin-Removing Treatment

If you still have urine output and your kidneys do not shrink severely, it is worthy to try such a treatment. It can discharge toxins from the cells, tissues and blood to make internal environment clean for kidney self-healing. It can also dissolve toxins and dispel them out of blood vessels to make blood flow fluent, and then essential elements can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. After about one week’s treatment, you will see floccules in urine, which are those wastes being passed out. After about half month’s treatment, high creatinine, BUN and uric acid level will decrease. After about one month’s treatment, your illness condition will be stabilized, and renal function will be improved gradually, and then it is possible for you to put off dialysis and kidney transplant.
