What Are Some Ways Loved Ones Can Support A Family Member With CKDWhen a family member is diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD), loved ones need to do something to support the patient. Well, what are some ways loved ones can support a family member with CKD?

Loved ones can support a family member from the following ways:

1. Prepare a proper kidney diet

When a person has kidney disease, the kidneys fail to work as well as they need to. Changing your diet can help protect your kidneys. It can also help you control other diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes, that can worsen kidney disease. Most people with CKD need to limit salt, fluids and protein. Some also need to limit potassium and phosphorus. Besides, there is no one diet which is right for everyone who has kidney disease. Your doctor or dietitian can help your loved ones to prepare a diet plan based on how well your kidneys are working.

2. Seek alternative treatment for the patient

Dialysis and kidney transplant are not the only ways for kidney disease patients. Loved ones should try to seek alternative and effective treatment for the patients. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, China, we have Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Mai Kang Mixture, Medicated Foot Bath and Medicinal Soup, etc for patients with CKD. They treat kidney disease from the root. Namely, these treatments can repair injured kidney tissues and improve kidney function. You may want to know how they improve kidney function, right? Actually these therapies are a systematic therapy and they are used together to dilate blood vessels, improve blood circulation, remove blood stasis, degrade extracellular matrix and provide nutrients. In this way, it stimulates the self-healing ability of injured kidney cells. Gradually injured kidney tissues can be repaired and then kidney function will be improved greatly. When kidney function is improved, they can live a longer life without dialysis and kidney transplant.
