Can Chronic Nephritis Patients Do ExerciseSome chronic nephritis patients may have such curiosity: whether can we take exercise or not? Because some doctors suggest that they can do exercise, while others don’t think so. Well then, how does exercise affect chronic nephritis?

Nephrologist points that in common condition, proper or moderate exercise can strengthen the body and enhance immunity. Under the stable illness condition, nephritis can choose the proper exercise according to their physical condition. Here what I want to stress is that you should remember to take a rest during or after exercise.

However, nephritis patients are not suggested to do exercise when they begin to suffer from massive hematuria, proteinuria, severe edema or swelling and high blood pressure (hyperstension). In such condition, exercise is harmful for kidneys. When the body is in the motion, the kidney blood flow will be reduced, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and the excretion od water and sodium will also decrease. As a result, high blood pressure will occur. When you do exercise, the acid metabolic products will increase and increase the kidneys burden and cause further kidney damage. If so, patient’s symptoms and signs will worsen.

After these symptoms remit, some kinds of high safety and soft or moderate exercise, such as walking slowly, jogging, Tai chi and so on are recommended to chronic nephritis patients. At any time, the strenuous exercise should be avoided by them because those exercise can aggravate their illness condition.

As a matter of fact, exercise plays an adjuvant role in enhancing immunity. However, Chinese medical herbs are commonly used for repairing kidney damage and recovering renal function. In addition, on the basis of TCM, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is created and has been used in our Treatment center point.
