How Do Kidney Disease Patients Stay on Fluid RestrictionWe are always suggested to take eight glasses of water a day to maintain our body hydrated. However, people with later stages of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) should limit fluid intake. How do kidney disease patients stay on fluid restriction?

Tips for fluid restriction

-Avoid salty foods and spicy foods which can easily make you thirsty.

The above suggestions are helpful but cannot solve patient’s problem. The root cause of fluid imbalance is the damaged kidneys. As long as the kidneys can function adequately, fluid can be balanced naturally. Well then, how to improve kidney function?

Treatment for kidney disease

To treat kidney disease from the root, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs. The key effect of these herbs is to improve blood circulation so that kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged renal tissues.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath and Maikang Composition are all therapies used in our hospital, Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital. They are all based on traditional Chinese herbs and are very natural for kidney disease patients. You can leave a message below to get more details.
