In clinic, both serum creatinine and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) are indicators reflecting how well the kidneys are working. If the creatinine level is 6.5 mg/dl and eGFR is 9.2 ml/min, is this Kidney Failure?
Diagnosis of Kidney Failure
The diagnosis of Kidney Failure usually is made by blood tests measuring BUN, creatinine, and glomerular filtration rate (GFR). In clinic, GFR is the most accurate reading. When GFR level is below 15 ml/min, it indicates Kidney Failure. You can send your test report to us at email@example.com or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty can help you analyze it.
Symptoms of Kidney Failure
● Symptoms due to fluid-retention: swelling; shortness of breath.
● Symptoms of damaged kidney function: protein or blood in urine; more or less urine output; frequent and urgent urine, especially at night.
Treatment for Kidney Failure
● Dialysis. It is usually recommended by the doctor. However, dialysis cannot cure kidney disease, because it just replace kidney work to filtering wastes and toxins in the blood. What’s more, dialysis causes many side effects.
● Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Unlike dialysis just relieve symptoms, Traditional Chinese Medicine can improve kidney function. The effective ingredients can dilate blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus increasing blood circulation. Thereby, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function well. Wastes and toxins can thus be excreted by kidneys naturally.
● Stem Cell Therapy. Stem cells are original cells, known as “universal cells”, because they can differentiate into many other functioning cells. We have almost 30 years of clinical practices, so you can trust us.
