There are two types of Kidney Failure: Acuter Kidney Failure and Chronic Kidney Failure. Both of them can be fatal and require intense treatment. However, Acute Kidney Failure may be reversible. If patients are in good health, recover is possible, while Chronic Kidney Failure is definitely irreversible.
Get fact about Chronic Kidney Failure
The following article is specially about Chronic Kidney Failure. Any questions, please consult our doctors online or email to email@example.com.
Kidney Failure is not an independent disease, but a group of symptoms when Chronic Kidney Disease progresses into the end stage. It is characterized by glomerular filtration rate (GFR) below 15ml/min.
How to treat Kidney Failure?
-Dialysis: Dialysis is the first step recommended by the doctor. Kidney Failure means your kidneys have been extremely severely damaged. That is, kidneys cannot remove wastes and fluid adequately. That’s why Kidney Failure patients have pretty high creatinine and BUN(blood urea nitrogen) levels. Dialysis helps remove blood wastes, like creatinine, urea and potassium, etc.
However, dialysis cannot work as well as healthy kidneys. Remaining kidney function is still decreasing during dialysis. When dialysis works no longer, your doctor may require kidney transplant.
-Traditional Chinese Medicine
Unlike over-the-counter medicines and dialysis, TCM can improve blood circulation to enhance kidney function. Based on our researches and clinical practice, our experts choose the best Chinese herbs that can expand blood vessels, fight against inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes.
Except for oral medicines, we also innovate several external applications such as Hot Compress Therapy, Acupuncture and Foot Bath, etc. They are helpful for promoting Qi (energy flow) and unlocking meridians so that more more blood volume and oxygen can be supplies to the kidneys. Then, remaining kidney function can be improved, and patients can reduce dialysis frequency and live a better life.
