What Can I Do to Keep My Kidneys From Failing

What Can I Do to Keep My Kidneys From FailingTo keep the kidneys from failing is to help the rest of your body too. According to my experience, it include three aspects: regular test; manage high blood pressure, diabetes or heart disease; improve kidney function. Here is a brief statement. Any questions, you can email to us at or leave a message below.

Regular test

Get your blood and urine checked for kidney disease. In general, you are suggested to take a test once every 6 months or a year. If you are at advanced stages of Chronic Kidney Disease, you’d better take tests once every 3 months.

Manage complications

This can be achieved by taking medicines and limited diet. Here are some tips:

● Keep your blood pressure at the target set by your health care provider. For most people, the blood pressure target is less than 140/90 mm Hg. This can delay the progression of kidney disease or prevent Kidney Failure,also called Renal Failure.

● If you have diabetes, control your blood glucose level.

● Keep your cholesterol levels under control.

● Take medicines the way your provider tells you to. Commonly used hypertensive drugs are ACE inhibitors and ARBs. Sometimes, beta blockers may be also used along with the above medicines. Never take medicines on your own since some medicines are nephrotoxic.

● Reduce sodium. Aim for less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium each day.

● Choose foods that are healthy for your heart: fresh fruits, fresh or frozen vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy foods.

● Stop or at least reduce alcohol and smoking.

Improve your kidney function

I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine. We choose Chinese herbs that can purify the blood and increase blood circulation. Therefore, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function adequately. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath and Foot Bath are commonly used.
