3 Strategies for You to Stabilize Renal Function
The progression of kidney disease is affected by multiple factors, among which various complications have a great impact on renal function. To protect the residual renal function as much as possible, the development of complications must be suppressed, especially the following three complications.

Massive proteinuria

Many patients attach great importance to the treatment of proteinuria. Then do you know what your 24 h urinary protein quantity should be?

-For stage 1 and stage 2 CKD patients whose GFR >= 60 ml/min, it is better to control proteinuria below 0.3g, which is helpful for recovery.

-For stage 3 and stage 4 CKD patients whose GFR >=15 ml/min, kidney function has been declined, and it is better to control proteinuria below 1g, which is helpful for protecting renal function.

-For stage 5 CKD patients, proteinuria should be controlled below 3.5g. And to avoid massive proteinuria. For dialysis patients, there is no requirement for proteinuria and more attention should be paid to the treatment of other complications.

Strategy to lower proteinuria

Steroids and immunosuppressants can be used initially to lower proteinuria. When it becomes stable and has little threat to renal function, their dosage can be tapered gradually, and then increase the application of other proteinuria-lowering drugs, such as ACEI, ARBs and statins, which can not only reduce proteinuria, but also protect renal function without side effects. If you can combine medical treatment with diet, the effect will be better.

Uncontrolled blood pressure

High blood pressure is a troublesome indicator in the treatment of kidney disease, and most kidney patients should understand that the long-term effects of high blood pressure on the body are irreversible. It can cause long-term renal ischemia and hypoxia so as to aggravate renal tissue sclerosis and fibrosis. For most people with kidney problems, blood pressure should be kept under 130/80 for a long time.

Strategy to lower blood pressure

Antihypertensive drugs, such as renin-angiotensin system inhibitors, calcium antagonists, β blockers, α blockers, and thiazide diuretics, are effective in reducing blood pressure. They can be used alone and in combination. Renal patients should follow the principles of taking medicine on time, on quantity, not changing and stopping drugs without permission.

Diet is also necessary. Low salt and low fat diet is recommended, which does not only help lower blood pressure, but also reduce burden on kidneys and restore renal function.

High uric acid

High uric acid is one of the complications after kidney function damage. Uric acid and serum creatinine are also important indicators of renal function and response to the accumulation of toxins in the body. Excess uric acid as a toxin always threatens renal function.

Strategy to lower high uric acid

You can not restore renal function very quickly. To reduce the damage of high uric acid, the first thing to reduce the intake of food that can generate uric acid, mainly high purine food, such as animal offal and seafood. The second thing is to use medicines to lower uric acid, such as Febuxostat Tablets and Allopurinol. Lastly, you should improve your living habits, do proper exercises, and drink more water especially soda water, which can help neutralize uric acid without side effects.

If you have the above 3 symptoms, you should pay attention and take treatment as early as possible. Only in this way can you stabilize your renal function. For more information on kidney failure treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
