How To Improve GFR 10% For PKD

2013-04-19 16:25

GFR stands for Glomerular Filtration Rate and it can be used to measure kidney functions. When GFR drops to 10%, it means that PKD has progressed into end stage renal disease. Dialysis and kidney transplant will be recommended by the doctors.

Dialysis can help purify the blood, relieve uremic state and prolong life expectancy for the patients, but it can not improve GFR or reverse renal damages, therefore it can not treatment end stage PKD. What is more, long term dialysis can make the patients become dependent on dialysis and the residual kidney functions will be gradually lost.

Kidney transplant is to place a healthy kidney to the patient’s body so that patients can regain kidney functions and the GFR will be improved. But not every patient can have the chance or afford the huge cost of kidney transplant. What is more, the transplanted kidney has certain survival rate and life span. That is to say, one kidney transplant can not ensure the patient to lead a normal life free of kidney problems for the rest of their life. Even the new kidney can function well, kidney transplant often bring a lot of other problems to the patients. Therefore kidney transplant may not be the best treatment option for end stage PKD patients when it is seen from the long run.

Chinese medicines can help shrink renal cysts, repair damaged renal tissues so as to increase GFR and improve kidney functions. When GFR is improved, the renal filtration system will be enhanced, excess creatinine, urea, uric acid and other harmful metabolic wastes will be discharged from the body. When renal functions are improved, patients can get rid of dialysis and avoid kidney transplant.

What is more, Chinese medicines are natural and safe and it is suitable to be used for the long run. Different from western medicines, Chinese medicines regard the body as a whole and it focuses on regulating and repairing the damaged and impaired parts so as to treat both the symptoms and root causes. Chinese medicines can help strengthen the patient’s physical fitness and immune systems, therefore it can not only treat the disease but also can nourish the patients.
