Recently, a piece of news drew high attention of people. On 14th, January, 8:00 am, Duan Shuhua was wheeled into the operating room. The surgeon will transplant one of her kidney to her own 16-year old son, Li Kai.
In 2009, Li Kai was just 11. He started to suffer from back pain and had trouble in walking. Then, he was diagnosed with Kidney Failure with bilateral damaged kidneys. Unfortunately, his older sister who had just got married was told by the doctor that she also had Kidney Failure, in April, 2012.
They didn’t have enough money to take dialysis, so the parents decided to give one of their kidneys to the children.
You may be confused that what is the chance of developing Kidney Failure of both children. Is Kidney Failure a inherited disease?

To be specific, Kidney Failure develops from various chronic kidney diseases caused by high blood pressure, diabetes or infections. Unless the kidney disease is inherited, such as Polycystic Kidney Disease, people won’t get the same disease.
Therefore, if you have some sudden signs like yellow or pale complexion, reduction of urine, elevated blood pressure or swelling, you should talk with your doctor and prepare a test right now.
Natural therapy for Kidney Failure
Dialysis or kidney transplant are not the only way to treat Kidney Failure. Let’s see what other patients say:
-You should know clear about your own illness condition. Making symptoms under control is enough. High pay doesn’t always mean good outcome. Be patient, a good care in daily life may be more important than simple medication.
-I’m worried about the repetition of symptom. I do not like treating myself with steroids. They bring me nothing but adverse effects. I prefer traditional Chinese medicines.
-Now my illness condition is under control. The doctor tell me to be careful about diet. A good mood and persistence are also very important.
From the above talks, you can see their positive attitude. What they all hope is that the disease can be controlled and they can live a normal life as others.
