CKD Stage 4: What Is the Treatment to Stop Illness Progression

2016-02-21 06:37

CKD Stage 4: What Is the Treatment to Stop Illness ProgressionCKD is divided into 5 stages and for these whose illness is in stage 4, if they fail to stop illness progression, dialysis will be required. Well, what is the treatment for help people with CKD stage 4 to stop illness progression?

CKD is the abbreviation of Chronic Kidney Disease, which is divided into 5 stages according to GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate). In CKD stage 4, GFR changes in range 15-29 and in CKD stage 5, GFR is lower than 15. That is to say, if we want to stop CKD stage 4 from progressing to stage 5, we need to stop further decline of GFR.

GFR describes flow rate of blood filtered by kidney. Low GFR means kidneys can not filter our blood well. In such a case, lots of toxins build up in blood, which can lead to so many problems like nausea, vomiting, skin itching, and so on. Also, severely damaged kidneys can not function well to adjust blood pressure, secrete hormone, maintain electrolyte balance and so on, which also bring us so many health issues like elevated blood pressure, electrolyte disturbance, renal anemia and so on. Conventional treatment aims at controlling these symptoms and complications, not repairing kidney damages, so finally CKD progresses to end stage.

In our hospital, people with CKD stage 4 is treated with Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which is a treatment based on Chinese herbs. In this treatment, Chinese herbs which have been proven to be good for our kidney are used together. They are crushed into powder and then made into medicine bags. When we take this treatment, medicine bags are used externally on Shen Shu acupoint, not orally, so we do not need to worry about any side effects. Active ingredients in medicine bags can promote renal filtration by promoting blood circulation, repair injured kidney intrinsic cells, strengthen residual kidney tissues, alleviate renal ischemia and renal anoxia. In this way, GFR can be kept in a good level and also, further illness progression is stopped fundamentally.

When CKD stage 4 progresses to stage 5, dialysis or kidney transplant will be needed. Therefore, it is necessary for us to take effective treatment timely to stop illness progression, so that we can live a good life without dialysis.
