Kidney failure is not an instant death sentence.

In the early stage of kidney failure, there are seldom symptoms or signs so that people can not detect that they have kidney failure.

There are medicines to help you ease the symptoms caused by kidney failure. For example, ACEI and ARB to lower blood pressure, steroids to reduce protein leakage, diuretics to alleviate edema. Even if you have ESRD, dialysis and kidney transplant can prolong your life. With timely and effective treatment, kidney disease usually develops slowly and you may live a full life.

Besides, you can repair the damaged kidneys to live a long life by some TCM therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction.
