Control symptoms

-High blood pressure does not only cause further damage to the kidneys, but also increase your risk of heart failure. Therefore, you should bring blood pressure down as early as possible. ACEI, ARBs, CCBs, diuretics and beta blockers are often used.

-If you have proteinuria, steroids and immunosuppressants are often used to inhibit kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to reduce protein leakage.

-If you have edema, diuretics can help you flush out the water.

-You may also control anemia and some other symptoms.

Some natural treatment for stage 4 kidney failure

Besides symptom management, you should repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. In stage 4, a lot of waste and toxins build up in the blood. There are therapies, such as foot bath, full bath, circle therapy and enema therapy to draw out toxins from the blood. They can also dilate blood vessels, speed up blood circulation and remove stasis to improve blood circulation, which helps kidney self-healing. There are also other therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix.

Healthy lifestyle for stage 4 kidney failure

Medical treatment plays an important role in slowing down the progression to ESRD, but you should not ignore the diet and exercise. When you are in stage 4, you should pay more attention to food you eat to follow a low protein, low salt, low fat, high vitamins and high fiber diet. You should also do some gentle exercise to boost immune system.

With the above treatment, it is very likely for you to recover from stage 4 kidney failure and live a normal life. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
