The therapeutic effect is not good in his local hospital, so he has to seek for better hospitals. On occasion, he meets one of his friends and under the friend’s introduce, he comes to China for further treatment.

At that time, aside from stroke, he also suffers from kidney disease. Her serum creatinine is 1228umol/L and it is in the stage of uremia.

When he sees the doctor for the first time, he points to the guitar and hopes he can play guitar again.

According to his medical condition, Doctor Zhou makes treatment plan with Chinese medicines and western medicines.

First, it is to control high serum creatinine. Second, it is to prevent uric acid and alleviate patient’s sufferings.

In his local country, Gewa also underwent many times of dialysis but serum creatinine level is still over 1000umol/L. In Shi Jiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, dialysis is only supplementary means of Chinese medicine treatment. The therapeutic effect is different from dialysis.

In our hospital, the therapeutic effect is very obvious and his serum creatinine decreases to 741umol/L from 1228umol/L. Uric acid decreases to normal range. What is most suprising is Gewa can play guitar again. Apart from guitar, he can also draw pictures with left hand.

After he goes to home, he needs to continue treatment to make a better recovery.
