How to Improve GFR for Stage 4 Kidney Failure Patients

2018-07-09 07:47

Question: My 18 year old son has 15% of renal function and is in waiting list for a transplant. He has been on medical treatment, but because his kidneys are small, his renal function has deteriorated to stage 4. Can you improve his GFR?

How to Improve GFR for Stage 4 Kidney Failure PatientsAnswer: Your son’s renal function is 15%. It is at the borderline of stage 4 and stage 5 kidney failure. Generally speaking, when it is below 15%, dialysis or kidney transplant is necessary. You said that his kidneys have already shrunk. What is the size of his kidneys now? How about the urine volume in 24 hours? And has he ever been on dialysis? As long as his urine output is over 100 ml and kidney size is over 6 cm, it is possible for him to stay away from dialysis. And to improve GFR, he should repair kidney damage.

In stage 4, due to declined renal function, there must be a large amount of wastes in the blood. Those wastes are a big problem for renal patients. They do not only cause directly damage to kidneys, but also slow down blood flow to lead to stasis. Stasis can reduce blood flow into kidneys, leading to renal ischemia and anoxia, which can damage kidneys as well. Moreover, they can counteract the effect of medications to restrain you from recovery. Therefore, to improve renal function, we should start from solving blood problems. Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Therapy.

Toxin-Removing Therapy for renal failure patients

This treatment takes advantage of plasma exchange, medicated bath, foot bath, steam bath and so on to eliminate wastes from the cells, tissue fluid and blood via urine, sweat and bowel movement. It can also dilate blood vessels and dissolve stasis to ensure blood flow fluent, and then oxygen, nutrients, vitamins, active ingredients of medicine and so on can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can relieve renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. After about one week’s treatment, his urine will become cloudy and smelly due to the existence of wastes. After about half month’s treatment, his creatinine, BUN and uric acid level will decrease. After about one month’s treatment, his disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
