What Stage of Kidney Failure with 8% Kidney FunctionIf patients have only 8% kidney function, they are at End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). In clinic, there are five stages of Chronic Kidney Disease. ESRD is also called Kidney Failure, or Stage 5 CKD.

Do patients with 8% kidney function need dialysis?

In general, when glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is below 15 ml/min, dialysis is needed. Therefore, dialysis is necessary for patients with only 8% kidney function.

Will dialysis treatment kidney disease?

No. Dialysis just do parts of kidney’s work to filter blood waste and toxins in the blood. It is helpful for prolong patient’s lifespan, but it cannot solve the underlying problem because dialysis cannot repair the damaged renal tissues. Generally, Kidney Failure patients have to take dialysis the rest life unless they can get a kidney transplant.

Are the any natural ways other than dialysis?

Yes. In our hospital, we mainly use traditional Chinese herbs. Unlike over-the-counter medicines and dialysis, traditional Chinese medicines can solve the underlying problem, namely, improving kidney function.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is such a external application used on bilateral Shenshu acupoints. With osmotic device, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly. They can expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracelluar matrixes. Therefore, blood circulation can be improved, and kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged renal tissues. Then, kidney function will be protected and enhanced. And patients with 8% kidney function can reduce dialysis frequency.

Another natural therapy called Stem Cell Therapy is also good for Kidney Failure patients. Stem cells are “universal cells” because they can differentiate into other stem cells with certain function. Rejected into the body, it can help restore parts of kidney function. We provide mesenchymal stem cells and umbilical cord blood stem cells.
