Can I With Chronic Kidney Disease Smoke Less

2016-10-11 06:49

In the process of communicating with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients, we often meet some chain smokers. They ask if it is ok for them to smoke less. Do you want to know the answer to this question? Follow us to see the question.

CKD patients should avoid smoking completely. The main composition in cigarette is nicotine. Nicotine can harden your blood vessels. Kidney is made up of blood capillaries. Harden blood vessels will make your blood pressure elevate. Besides, high blood pressure will cause further damage on your kidneys. This is a vivious circle. Therefore, you must give up smoking if you want to protect your kidney function.

Moreover, long term of smoking can damage your upper respiratory tract and lung. It is also easy to induce cold so as to trigger infection. In this condition, further kidney damage will be aggravated. At the same time, smoking can increase the risk of cancer and other diseases.

Apart from giving up smoking, you also need to follow some healthy lifestyles:

1. Exercise regularly

2. Monitor your over-the-counter painkiller use

3. Monitor your weight

4. Monitor your blood pressure and cholesterol

5. If you have high risk factors, talk to your doctor about getting tested

6. Follow a healthy diet including low sodium, low but high quality protein, low potassium and low phosphorus.

A healthy lifestyle is important in delaying the progression of your kidney disease. But it is not enough. The key point in kidney disease treatment is to repair kidney damage and improve renal function. Only in this way can you get a good recovery. To repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function, we recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is used externally. Patients just need to lie on bed to take this therapy. With the help of osmosis machine, the active ingredients in Chinese medicines can arrive at kidney lesion directly and recover renal function through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. More and more patients have come to our hospital for treatment. If you want to have a high quality life style, you can come to China for a try.
