At What Stage Kidney Patients Should Start DialysisAre you feeling worried about starting dialysis? Dialysis is a way to remove waste products and excess fluid from the blood when the kidneys stop working properly. At what stage kidney patients should start dialysis? You may have similar doubt. Now read on to learn more information.

In most countries, when you develop to end stage renal failure or by the time you lose about 85-90 % of your kidney function or have a GFR of less than 15, dialysis is needed. When you are still in stage 4, you doctor may have suggested you do a fistula. Dialysis can help you cleanse the polluted blood and sustain your life, but it can not preserve your remaining kidney function and it brings you many side effects, such as skin itch, nausea, vomiting and so on to affect your life quality.

In China, we usually help kidney patients put off dialysis as long as possible.

In a damaged kidney, there are three kinds of kidney tissues, namely intact ones, inflamed ones and scarred ones. Those inflamed ones can restore their function with proper treatment. Here we recommend a systemic treatment for you—4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various Medicinal Soup).

This set of treatment can suppress kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to reduce further kidney damage. It can speed up blood circulation and remove stasis to improve blood circulation so that blood can flow into kidneys to improve ischemia and anoxia. It can draw toxins out of the body to reduce their accumulation in the blood. It can provide the damaged kidneys with essential elements, such as vitamins and amino acids to help them heal quickly. Besides, it can strengthen your immunity to help you fight against the disease.

Generally speaking, after one week’s treatment, you will see therapeutic effect. For example, swelling will fade away gradually, you will become energetic, you can have a good sleep at night, etc. After one month’s treatment, protein in urine will disappear, high creatinine level will decrease, and your kidney function will improve. But to strengthen your kidney function, treatment usually keeps for several months.

At what stage you should start dialysis? Different kidney patients have different medical conditions, so the time they start dialysis is different as well. If you do not want to live on dialysis for the rest of your life, you should take treatment as early as possible to protect the residual kidney function and repair the damaged kidneys to regain some kidney function.
