Toxin-Removing Therapy can be taken under such a case. This is a systemic treatment, which includes many therapies, such as plasma exchange, oral Chinese medicine, external therapies, cytokine infusion therapy, etc. Those therapies can eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body via urine, sweat and bowel movement. They can also restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. Moreover, they can improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery.

After about half month’s treatment, your high creatinine, urea and uric acid level will be reduced.
