1. Dietary therapy

Lower sodium and fluid intake

Control fluid retention and blood pressure with lower sodium and fluid intake and prescribed medications. Your requirements should be assessed by your doctor because fluid retention and the degree of sodium restriction needed vary greatly with people in stage 5 CKD.

Avoid foods with high potassium and high phosphorus

High potassium foods should be avoided including avocado, banana, dried fruit, oranges and orange juice, pumpkin, winter squash and tomato products, etc. Foods with high phosphorus include cheese, chocolate, legume, ice cream, milk and yogurt, nuts and seeds.

Eat enough calories to maintain your weight

A low calorie intake and weight loss is not recommended in stage 5. You should eat adequate calories to prevent weight loss and to help preserve muscle sores.

2. Medical treatment

Different from other hospitals, our hospital-Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital mainly gives kidney patients Chinese medicine treatments like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) but used externally. Chinese medicines are processed into powder and then packaged into medicated bags. Patients just need to lie on bed to take this therapy. The osmosis machine helps the active ingredients arrive at kidney lesion directly. It enhances renal function through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. In this way, CKD stage 5 patients can live a better life. But Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is only available in China.
