2015-10-31 10:34| Font Size A A A

Dose Taking Statins for Cholesterol Affect GFRStatin is a kind of western medicine which is widely prescribed to lower blood cholesterol levels, and can be very effective. Everything has two sides, and some patients are worried that taking statins will affect GFR (Glomerular Filteration Rate).

Statins can affect GFR in some cases.

A new study suggests, People who take high doses of popular cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins may be more likely to develop kidney problems. Indeed, they can help reduce high cholesterol level effectively, however, confer their share of risks, most notably liver damage and muscke pain or weakness. It is well known that our kidneys are important “filters” of our body. When these medicines breakdown by liver, and the waste metabolic products need to be discharged out of the body by kidneys. Therefore, kidneys’ workload will increase. If the conditions last for long period, glomeruli can be involved. Therefore, you should never take the medicine unless getting professional guidance of the doctor.

Chinese medicines can lower cholesterol level without side effects.

In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital, China, we do use natural therapies to treat kidney damage. Since high cholesterol high also can cause kidney damage easily, so we do use Chinese medicine which has no side effects to the body.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy-the Chinese herbal medicine have the functions like dilating blood vessels, promoting blood circulation anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degrading extracelluar matrix and supplying necessary nutrients. In the condition, a good blood environment can be set up. In addition, other natural treatments also can be your best choices, including Hot Compress Therapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Blood pollution Therapy, etc.
