6 Methods to Treat Kidney Disease and Prevent UremiaKidney disease, taking chronic nephritis as an example, has become a common chronic disease in our life. According to the number of people with the disease, chronic kidney disease affects about 1 in 10 people.

Then can chronic nephritis be cured?

Yes, but people with chronic kidney disease need to change their understanding of "cure". By cure, I mean a clinical cure, which means that the symptoms of the disease can be eliminated by treatment, the condition can be stabilized, and the kidney disease can no longer worsen.

It is not treated only once, and won’t relapse any more.

If it reaches clinical cure, it is so-called cured.

To achieve this purpose, the following methods can not be ignored.

1. To choose your diet based on your symptoms

The main symptoms of kidney disease include proteinuria, occult blood, edema, hypertension, anemia, etc.

The amount of protein supplement is not determined by how much protein is spilled out. It is not the more you leak, the more you take.

In patients with normal renal function, the daily protein intake should be kept at 0.8~1g/kg. And the patients that appears azotemia (BUN and creatinine is higher than normal value) should limit protein intake appropriately, it is good to maintain 0.6~0.8/kg. No matter which kind of patients you are, high quality protein such as meat, milk and eggs is recommended.

Patients with edema should limit their water and sodium intake.

People with high blood pressure should also limit salt intake to 5 grams or less.

Anemia is not high in the early stage of kidney disease. If you have anemia, you can eat red lean meat (pork, beef and mutton).

2. To adjust the rhythm of exercise and rest

When the disease is developing, proteinuria has not decreased, and edema has not dissipated, it is better for you to stay in bed and have a good rest. Rest increases blood flow to the kidneys, helps recovery, and prevents and reduces complications.

When the disease is at a steady stage, the urine protein decreases and the edema subsides, activities can be appropriately increased and some walking exercises can be done.

3. To reduce symptoms

Such as proteinuria and swelling.

For patients with urinary protein greater than 1g/24h, steroids can be used. If they have no effect or the effect is not obvious after a period of use, the drugs can be changed. For example, antihypertensive drugs such as ACEI and ARBs can achieve the effect of antihypertensive, reduce proteinuria and protect renal function through their unique mechanism of action.

The method commonly used to treat edema is diuretic, and it is better for you to cooperate with diet adjustment.

4. Anti-infection treatment

Prevention of infection is something that requires kidney patients to insist on doing for a lifetime, because once infection, it will make previous treatment waste, resulting in the aggravation and recurrence of kidney disease.

In order to prevent infection, kidney patients can take jinshuibao, bailing and other Chinese patent medicine to boost qi and blood circulation, improve immunity, and prevent cold.

5. Careful use of drugs

If you accidentally catch a cold, please do not buy drugs at random, because some drugs may damage your kidneys further, such as some antipyretic analgesics like aspirin, ibuprofen, and so on. Before taking medication, you had better consult a professional doctor to avoid irreversible consequences for renal function.

6. To do regular checkups

Physical examination can be conducted between half a year and one year to observe the changes of the indicators such as urea nitrogen, creatinine and ketone body so as to prevent complications in a timely manner.
