Can You Reverse Kidney DiseaseChronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is divided into five stages according to glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Stage 1-2 CKD can be reversed, while the other advanced stages of Chronic Kidney Disease is irreversible but can be well treated.

There are something you can do to slow down the progression of kidney disease. Making some changes of your diet, lifestyle and medicines is helpful. Here is a general introduction. Any questions, please email to us at or consult our doctors online directly.

Diet changes

-Remove high protein animal meats from your diet. You are suggested to take protein with 0.6 to 0.8 grams per kg of body weight each day. This is to help you decrease the stress on your kidneys, since protein metabolism will produce many wastes like urea nitrogen.

-Limit your salt intake to 1,500 mg per day. That requires you to reduce eating processed meat, canned soups and dried vegetables, which is to prevent high blood pressure and swelling.

-Avoid taking too much potassium and phosphorous. Many vegetables contain much potassium and some dairy products are high in phosphorous. You can consult our doctor online for specific suggestions.

-Eat enough iron and vitamins. This is to prevent anemia,which may lead to fatigue, dizziness and headache, etc.

-Drink enough water to keep your body hydrated.

Choose proper medicines

-Western medicines: Your doctor may prescribe some medicines to help you alleviate some symptoms such as back pain, nausea, swelling, high blood pressure and itchy skin, etc. However, reports say that NSAIDs like aspirin will damage the kidneys, so they should be taken under the doctor’s supervision.

-Chinese herbs: I recommend you to take Chinese herbs because they are more natural. We have rich experience on using traditional Chinese herbs, and have innovated several external applications based on herbal medicine. If you are interested in our natural herbs, please leave a message below.
