    Is Dialysis The Right Treatment For CKD Stage 4

    2017-03-19 03:32| Font Size A A A

    Is Dialysis The Right Treatment For CKD Stage 4Dialysis is the most common treatment for kidney disease but it is not the right treatment. Dialysis can sustain your life but can not repair your injured kidney tissues. Apart from dialysis, stage 4 kidney disease patients should also choose other remedies.

    Dialysis can save your life but fail to replace your kidneys. Common dialysis, plasma exchange and blood adsorption are all unable to replace your kidneys. Patients on dialysis will experience some side effects including:

    1. Electrolyte acid-base metabolism disorder

    Damaged kidneys will have decreased regulating capacity. No matter how dialysis is perfect, it can not do this job well. Over time, your electrolyte and acid-base will be disordered such as potassium, phosphorus and calcium. Renal patients usually experience high potassium, high phosphorus and low calcium level.

    2. Cardiovascular disease and blood disease

    Dialysis is to filter your blood. Low blood pressure is a common complication. It is very dangerous for a patient to have low blood pressure for a long time. Besides, high blood pressure is often associated with kidney disease. When your blood pressure is high, your heart will also be dangerous. Along with high potassium level in blood, it is more likely for you to have heart failure. Each dialysis will take away some blood and nutrients. Thus, it is very common for patients to experience anemia. Low immunity also occurs in this condition.

    Dialysis can also lead to infection and other complications. Most patients reject dialysis. For patients who do not want to take dialysis or kidney transplant, here we recommend Toxin-Removing Treatment which is a series of Chinese medicine therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Medicinal Soup and Moxibustion Therapy, etc. The application of Chinese medicines can expel various wastes and toxins out of your body via urine, bowel movement and sweat glands. This can set up a clean blood environment for recovering renal function and the application of other medicines. When blood is purified, Chinese medicines can stimulate the self-healing ability of injured kidney tissues and improve renal function through expanding blood vessels, improving blood circulation, degrading extracellular matrix, providing nutrients and removing blood stasis. In this way, stage 4 kidney disease can be treated radically.
