What Does It Mean That Kidneys Start to FailWhen people take a kidney function test or blood test, they may be told that their kidneys start to fail. If you are also confused about that, you can find answer in this article.

Overview about Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

Kidneys are responsible for filtering blood waste and toxins, regulating blood pressure, removing excess fluid, maintain electrolyte balance and producing vitamin D to help bone growth. When some nephrons are damaged, the kidneys cannot function adequately.

Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) is an accurate indicator reflecting how well the kidneys are working. Chronic Kidney Disease is divided into five stages based on GFR levels.

Stage of CKD 1 2 3 4 5
GFR(mL/min) >90 60-90 30-60 15-30 <15

Treatment options for Chronic Kidney Disease

Since cases differ from person to person, treatment may be different for CKD patients. The following suggestion is for general people.

Diet for Chronic Kidney Disease patients

-Reduce sodium intake in case of high blood pressure

-Lower protein to reduce burden on kidneys since protein produce many wastes after metabolism

-Limit potassium, phosphorous or even calcium.

-Reduce fat foods to lower cholesterol levels.

-Control fluid intake since kidneys cannot remove excess fluid.

Medication for Chronic Kidney Disease patients

-Western medicines. They are sometimes necessary to control some symptoms such as high blood pressure, diabetes or infection. Which may be fatal in Chronic Kidney Disease patients.

-Traditional Chinese Medicine. Unlike over-the-counter medicines, TCM can treat kidney disease from the root. They can improve blood circulation by expanding blood vessels, fight against inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus improving blood circulation. Then, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged renal tissues. As long as kidney function can be improved, all symptoms can be completely relieved.
