Can You Only Wait for Dialysis with Kidney FailureClinically, in addition to acute renal failure, acute interstitial nephritis and other acute kidney diseases, renal damage caused by other kidney disease is basically irreversible. Simply steroid treatment can only alleviate illness condition temporarily. Once it is stopped, the condition gets worse. Therefore, to cure kidney disease clinically, on one hand, you should control the current condition, and on the other hand, you should stop kidneys from being damaged further.

Therefore, if you ignore the signals of kidney disease again and again, it may be that the day of discovery is already kidney failure; But most patients, in the occurrence of anemia, hypertension, foam urine, fatigue nausea and other symptoms of various discomfort, will go to the hospital timely to check. As soon as you detect kidney disease in time, the disease can be controlled effectively.

Can you only wait for dialysis with kidney failure?

Kidney failure is typically characterized by a sustained rise in creatinine, which represents a gradual deterioration of renal function and an accumulation of toxins in the body. In order to remove toxins from the body, most western doctors recommend hormone suppression or dialysis. But can dialysis control kidney failure?

The reason why kidney disease is difficult to treat is that the accumulated toxins in the body can not be cleared. Dialysis alone can only clear the small molecules of toxins, while the large molecules of toxins remain in the body and accumulate. Those large molecule toxins can cause further kidney damage and make you lose kidney function completely. What is worse, they can affect other organs and lead to advanced uremia. And then even kidney transplant can not survive you.

Therefore, dialysis is only temporary medical relief. Only when those toxins are cleared from the blood can you inhibit immune response and stop further kidney damage. And when GFR is over 10 ml/min, it is unnecessary for you to consider dialysis.

How to eliminate toxins from the blood?

Dialysis is a physical therapy, not a cure. To repair damaged kidneys, especially when there is remaining 1/3 of kidney function, traditional Chinese medicine can be used. In addition to oral traditional Chinese medicine decoction, it can be combined with external traditional Chinese medicine, such as Steam Therapy, Moxibustion and Hot Compress. They can work together to solve the problems from the root.

However, it is not to say that end-stage renal failure and uremia do not need dialysis. After all, dialysis is the most direct way to maintain life, and traditional Chinese medicine is a progressive repair process. These two methods should cooperate with each other to achieve a better effect.
