4 Things to Be Done to Keep Kidney Failure AwayFor some renal patients, they may develop to kidney failure within half year, while for some renal patients, they still lead a normal life. Why their prognosis is so different? Here are 4 things to be done to keep kidney failure away.

1. The pathological type of primary kidney disease

Uremia is only a result of progressive kidney disease. Although we cannot determine the initial pathological type of kidney disease, the treatment of glomerular disease is less difficult, and the condition is more serious when accompanied by renal tubular fibrosis.

Clinically, minimal change disease, primary membranous nephropathy or mild focal nephritis can be cured. The prognosis of membranous proliferative glomerulonephritis is relatively poor. However, the renal capsule with crescent formation or glomerulosclerosis is more serious and the prognosis is worse.

2. To reduce proteinuria

When the urinary protein level exceeds 1g, the reabsorption capacity of renal tubules will be significantly affected, and renal function will be lost after a long period of time.

No matter you receive steroid treatment or steroids, the goal of proteinuria treatment should be under 1g/24h. When proteinuria is controlled well, even if it is only kept stable at a low level, not negative, renal function decline is not much faster than normal people.

3. To decrease creatinine level

In the case of creatinine, its increase is thought to indicate a direct failure of renal function and a rapid deterioration of the condition. But if patients do not have obvious symptoms when creatinine level increases, doctor often ask patients to go home and wait. Wait for what?

When creatinine increases to certain degree, especially exceeds 560, dialysis should be started.

Of course, there are some people who do not want to wait, but choose to use traditional Chinese medicine to control the rising trend of creatinine, and take western medicine such as Aixite and Niaoduqing to control the rise of creatinine and delay the process of renal failure.

4. To control high blood pressure

High blood pressure is more likely to damage kidney function than urinary protein and occult blood. In dealing with hypertension, antihypertensive drugs (ACEI or ARBs) are mainly used, but the use of traditional Chinese medicine to improve internal patients is more effective and lasting.
