    Is Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease Reversible

    2014-02-23 15:24| Font Size A A A

    Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD) also named End Stage Renal Disease, is the most severe stage of kidney disease. In this stage, almost all of the kidney function can disappear and lead to death to patients. So some of the patients may ask whether stage 5 CKD is reversible. Now, let us look at the explanation from our experts.

    The kidneys are vital for human survival. It can filter blood and remove wastes from body. But in stage 5 CKD, your GFR can decrease to 15ml/min or less. Thus excessive water, wastes and toxins will build up in body and cause damage to many body systems. Therefore, patients can suffer from a lot of clinical symptoms such as proteinuria, shortness of breath, itching body, severe swelling, poor memory, nausea and vomiting and so on.

    Besides, in stage 5 CKD, the production of EPO in your body, which can promote the production of red blood cells, can be reduced. As a result, ischemia and anoxia condition in body will happen and lead to anemia.

    At present, western medicine usually choose dialysis to replace normal kidney function and remove wastes from body. However, it can not reverse stage 5 CKD. Sometimes, dialysis can even cause many complications and aggravate kidney damage. But in China, they choose natural Chinese medicine to treat kidney disease. For example, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an external therapy of Chinese herbal medicine, which can not only ease clinical symptoms but also rebuild kidney function so that patients can live a normal life.

    Although stage 5 CKD is difficult to be reversed, it is still able to live a normal life for years if you treat it early and timely. Have any question? Please consult our online doctor or leave a message below.
