    A CKD Stage 5 Patient from Nigeria Came to China for Treatment

    A CKD Stage 5 Patient from Nigeria Came to China for TreatmentName: Joseph Okah

    Gender: Male

    Age: 46

    Country: Nigeria

    Condition: CKD stage 5

    Admission time: March 31, 2013

    Discharge time: May 10, 2013

    Five years ago, I went to a local hospital because of my headaches and dizziness. The result showed that my blood pressures were 160/100mmHg, so my doctor prescribed me with some hypotensive drugs. However, my blood pressure had not been controlled well as I did not take them regularly. It fluctuated between 140-210 and 90-110mmHg.

    Two years ago, I went to hospital again because of nausea, vomiting and swelling on double lower limbs. The urine test showed urine protein ++, occult blood +; kidney function showed creatinine 220umol/L. I was diagnosed with chronic glomerulonephritis. The hypotensive drugs were kept taking, but without steroid drugs. During this period of time, my creatinine level rose gradually.

    Seven months ago, because of nausea and vomiting, I went to a hospital in Nigeria. The test report showed blood pressure 210/110mmHg, urine protein ++, occult blood +, hemoglobin 102g/L, phosphorus 1.95mmol/L, serum creatinine 800umol/L, blood urea nitrogen 25.0mmol/L. I was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Failure, CKD stage 5. Then I began to undergo dialysis treatment, three times a week.

    I did not want to experience dialysis forever or receive a kidney transplant one day, I found other treatments for CKD stage 5 available in other countries, which is the reason why I came to China for treatment. After I arrived in China, a new test was done and the results showed serum creatinine 1006umol/L, blood urea nitrogen 25.0mmol/L. In addition to healthy diet and those common western medicines, I received a particular therapy called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy here. It is based on Chinese herbal medicines, but used externally. After about a month’s treatment, serum creatinine level was declined to 790umol/L, BUN level was reduced to 8.4mmol/L, the swelling on lower limbs was gone, blood pressure 130/80mmHg.
