    Is Dialysis the only Treatment Option for People with Stage 5 CKD

    2013-10-02 16:41| Font Size A A A

    Chronic kidney disease(CKD) can be divided into 5 stages.In stage 5 CKD,the kidneys are damaged severely with renal function below 15% of normal. When kidneys fail, dialysis will be prescribed. However, is dialysis the only treatment option for people with stage 5 CKD?

    How does dialysis work to treat stage 5 CKD?

    Dialysis is also called artificial kidney and it can replace the renal function to filter out wastes and excess fluid from body.It is effective in relieving discomforts and can help prolong the patients’ life span. However,it is not a cure for stage 5 CKD.Dialysis only can remove the micromolecular harmful substances,but the left wastes will retain in body and may do more harm to kidneys.Even if the patients with stage 5 CKD are on dialysis, the renal function still keeps deteriorating.The average life span of people with stage 5 CKD on dialysis is just between 5~6 years.

    Is dialysis the only treatment for stage 5 CKD?

    Dialysis only can replace partial renal function to filter blood, but has no significance in improving renal function at all.

    If kidney structure can be restored and renal function can be enhanced, dialysis will not be required at all.Then how to restore the impaired kidney structure and improve renal function?

    The first step is to remove all kinds of wastes and toxins from body. Dialysis alone is not enough at all.Blood Purification can remove all kinds of toxins and wastes to create a favorable internal environment for repairing the impaired kidney tissues.

    Then Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is used in the next treatment process.It can stimulate the self-regeneration of impaired kidney tissues to improve renal function. In this way, the kidneys will be able to function better and the patients with stage 5 CKD will not need dialysis.
