Mrs Meng has been suffered from diabetes for a long term. She is so annoyed because she has to follow so many restrictions. Recently, she is diagnosed with protein in urine, and is told she has kidney problems, which makes her more upset.
Four years ago, Mrs Meng was diagnosed with diabetes with symptoms of frequent hunger, thirst and urine.Then, she started taking medicine to reduce high blood sugar level. After several years of medication, the blood sugar level is still high.
Traditionally, treatments for diabetes are diet changes and medicines. Since this condition causes no serious discomfort for her, Mrs Meng did not pay attention on it. However, in the last test, she has positive protein ++, and urine occult blood +. Doctor told that she had kidney damage, and Diabetic Nephropathy is possibly followed.
She knows how serious kidney disease is. Once it develops into Kidney Failure, she has no choice but wait for death. Therefore, she sought for effective treatment.
When she came to our hospital, and told her illness history to Dr Mu. His primary estimation is “Type 2 Diabetes and Chronic Glomerulonephritis”. The reason why he said it is Diabetic Nephrotic is like this:
Diabetic Nephrotic patients usually have a history of more than five-year diabetes. However, Mrs Meng has four years of diabetes and no abnormalities in the eye ground. More important, diabetics hardly have positive occult blood. By considering all the factors and taking blood test, she was diagnosed with CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease).
Then, comes the treatment. Mrs Meng complained that she has fatigue, muscle weakness, poor appetite and increased urine output. In that case, Dr Meng prescribed medicines that are right for her illness condition. By combining oral traditional Chinese medicines with Foot Bath, the patient’s blood circulation can be improved and energy pathways can be unlocked.
After two weeks, she got great reduction of proteinuria. Under Dr Mu’s care, she has confidence on the beautiful future.
