Therefore, to prevent kidney shrinkage, we should improve ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys.

How to treat shrunk kidneys in Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital?

In our hospital, we use Chinese medicine. In Chinese medicine, there are various therapies, including circle therapy, enema therapy, medicated foot bath, medicated full bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, acupuncture, moxibustion, etc. Some of them can dilate blood vessels to increase blood flow into kidneys. Some can speed up blood circulation and remove stasis to improve blood circulation so that more blood can go through the kidneys. And then we can improve ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys to prevent and treat kidney shrinkage. But that is not enough. Some therapies can help clear waste products away from the blood and some can draw toxins out of the renal cells to set up a good blood environment for the damaged kidneys to heal themselves.

After a short-term treatment, some of your symptoms such as fatigue, swelling, proteinuria, high blood pressure and so on will get relieved. After a long-term treatment, your kidney function will improve and your kidney size will recover.
