Diabetes, 59 Years Old, Female, 30% Kidney FunctionHi, thanks for trusting and leaving us message. You said you are a diabetic, so how many years you have lived with Diabetes? Is your kidney function associated with your diabetes? If yes, the following suggestions will be helpful:

1. Treat Diabetes timely and effectively

Diabetes is marked by persistent high blood sugar which is not harmful in short-term, but if it lasts for a long time, not only kidney, but also some other organs like eyes, foot and nerve system will be damaged. Therefore, please take treatment to control your blood sugar in normal range and this is also necessary for the recovery of kidney condition.

2. About high blood pressure

You said you have only 30% of kidney function left. Kidney is a multiple-function. Apart from filtering blood, it also secrete hormone and regulate blood pressure, so chronic kidney disease is always accompanied with elevation of blood pressure. If your blood pressure is higher than normal range, medicines like ACEI and ARBs will be needed to lower them down, because persistent high blood pressure damages kidney tissues directly.

3. Improvement of kidney function

So far only 30% of your kidney function is left. Under such a condition, the residual kidney tissues have to work very hardly to try to maintain a normal life. It is ok for kidney tissues to bear a heavy burden temporary, but if this condition lasts for a long time, these kidney tissues will be finally damaged as well. Therefore, it is very important to improve kidney function, so as to reduce the burden of residual kidney tissues. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the treatment recommended to improve kidney function.

4. Arrange a kidney-friendly diet
