How can I prevent Kidney Failure?
In clinic, when kidney function is below 15%, Kidney Failure is diagnosed. To prevent the progression of kidney disease, you are suggested to take actions from the following aspects:
● Find real cause. Many factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, infection or trauma can all cause kidney damage. Therefore, the first step is to find the real cause of your kidney damage. Then, take medicines to treat or at least control it.
● Improve kidney function
This is the key to treat any kidney disease. We mainly use traditional Chinese herbs. The effective ingredients of Chinese herbs can dilate blood vessels, inhibit inflammation, degrade extracellular matrixes, thus increase blood circulation. As a result, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair damaged renal tissues.
Therefore, kidney function is protected and improved.
Commonly used therapies in our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, include Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy (an external application used on kidney areas), Medicated Bath, Foot Bath and Maikang Mixture (a bottle of liquid herbal medicine).
