Kidney Function Dropping to 26 %: What Can Help Improve Kidney FunctionRecently a patient told me that his kidney function drops to 26 % and he wanted to know what can help him improve kidney function. If you have the same medical condition, the following information may be helpful.

Western medication

For kidney patients, they have to eat various western medicines, such as hypertensive drugs, steroid, diuretic, etc. What they can do is to control your symptoms quickly rather than improve kidney function. But they can slow down the progression to kidney failure.

Chinese medication

Chinese medicine is also a choice for kidney patients. Relatively speaking, Chinese medicine has few side effects. And oral Chinese medicine and external therapies are used together to help regulate the qi flowing in the channels, remove blood stasis, and cleanse toxins. Therapies such as medicated bath, foot bath, enema therapy and so on are very helpful in repairing the damaged kidneys and improving kidney function.

Healthy Lifestyle

Besides medication, you should pay attention to your healthy lifestyle, such as diet and exercise. They can help you improve kidney function to certain extent. In diet, you should follow a low protein, low sodium and low fat diet and you may also control your intake of potassium and phosphorus according to your medical condition. In exercise, you should do some gentle exercise regularly, such as walking, jogging, swimming, etc.

Kidney function 26% means you are in the stage 4 kidney disease. If you can not control your medical condition, it will quickly develop to end stage and then dialysis is just around the corner.
