2015-08-13 06:54

Kidney Failure With 15% Function: When Dialysis Is NeededDialysis is always recommended by the doctor when kidney disease patients have reached to ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease), also called Kidney Failure. This end stage of CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease ) is characterize by GFR level below 15. Therefore, dialysis is general needed if Kidney Failure patients only have 15% renal function. However, is that enough?

Can dialysis cure Kidney Failure?

Absolutely no. Well then, what are the effects on dialysis on Kidney Failure? Dialysis is called “artificial kidney” because it replaces kidneys to filter blood wastes. That is to say, during dialysis, the kidneys needn’t to work. As time goes by, more and more kidney function reduces because they are abandoned.

What’s more, dialysis often causes many side effects like low blood pressure, anemia, skin itching, muscle cramps, nausea, infection, etc. That’s why more and more Kidney Failure patients begin to seek for natural treatments.

Are there any alternatives to dialysis?

Yes. In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we mainly use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM ) and Stem Cell Therapy. Here is a brief introduction. Any questions, you can email to us at or leave a message below.

● Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). We use traditional Chinese herbs to purify the blood. The root cause of kidney damage is polluted blood because wastes inside the body causes various inflammations. These reactions causes ischemia and anoxia inside the kidneys, decreasing renal function. Therefore, we choose Chinese herbs that can increase blood circulation and repair damaged kidney tissues.

● Stem Cell Therapy. Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can differentiate into specialized cells and can divide (through mitosis) to produce more stem cells. After being delivered into the body, they can help regenerate new renal blood cells and repair damaged nephrons, thus improving kidney function.

As for you own illness conditions, you can get some guidance related to diet, exercise, medicines or some natural remedies. The online consultation service is free. Please remember to leave your email address, or phone number so that we can contact you and help you!
