What Is CKD Stage 5 Patients with MHD Means A Person with Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) means he has entered into end stage renal disease (ESRD) with glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of 15ml/min or less. Well then, what is stage 5 kidney disease with MHD means?

What is MHD?

MHD is an abbreviation of maintenance hemodialysis, which makes use of hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis to save patients’ life. Actually, it is the excessive method to prolong uremia patients’ life time. So far, the treatment is used for uremia patients which induced by various chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure as well as diabetes.

Why CKD Stage 5 Patients need to undergo MHD?

As I mentioned above at the very beginning, Stage 5 patients nearly have lost all of renal function. It is well known that healthy kidneys clean your blood by removing excess fluid, minerals and wastes. They also make hormones that keep your bones strong and your blood health. Most people with kidney problems have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Chronic kidney disease slowly lose function. When the kidneys function at 15% or less, this is called Kidney Failure or end stage renal disease (ESRD). For stage 5 patients, their kidneys nearly fail completely, harmful wastes and build up in your body, triggering severe symptoms and complications. When this happens, you will need MHD to replace the work of your failed kidneys, so as to maintain patients’ life time.

Well then, can it help reverse kidney damage for CKD Stage 5 patients?

It’s my duty to tell you, it can just help you prolong patients’ life through discharging extra wastes and toxins. But it fails to repair kidney damage and improve renal function from the root. Well then, how? In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Blood Pollution Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy are all available for patients, which can help reduce the frequency of dialysis.
