How to manage symptoms in stage 5 kidney disease?
Normally, dialysis is recommended for ESRD patients. However, there are someone who cannot bear the expensive and sometimes painful process. If you are one of them who refuse dialysis, you may as well try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. Based on Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCM), this therapy is more natural and effective. It aims at treating kidney disease by repairing renal intrinsic cells ans improving kidney function. As long as your remaining kidney function is protected and no more further kidney damages occur, your kidneys can work adequately.
