At What Point in Kidney Failure Is Dialysis RequiredKidney Failure means that kidneys fail to function normally. Due to decreased renal function, patients are more likely to suffer a lot. For patients with renal failure, one of concerned question can be included: at what point in kidney failure is dialysis required?

What are the functions of dialysis?

Dialysis, as the life-sustaining treatment, it can replace the damaged kidneys’ work. Namely it can help damaged kidneys filter extra wastes and toxins from blood effectively. To some extent, the treatment also can prolong patients’ life time.

Well then, when renal failure patients need to undergo dialysis?

Actually, the answer depends up how much you have kidney function. GFR (glomerular filtration rate) is a reliable indicator to reflect how your kidneys are working. According to GFR, there are five stages kidney disease. Usually, ESRD (end stage renal disease) patients will be recommended to do dialysis. Namely, when kidney function is less than 15, dialysis may be applied. In addition, when your serum creatinine level increase to 8mg/dl, dialysis will recommended you again. It’s my duty to tell you, long-term dialysis also can trigger new healthy problems, after all, it cannot improve renal function.

However, is there alternative treatment aside from dialysis?

Of course yes. Although there is at present no cure for any kinds of kidney diseases, but what we can do is to repair kidney damage and stop progression of kidney disease. In our hospital, Beijing Tongshantang Hospital, we do mainly make full use of Traditional Chinese Medicine and advanced medical technology to help more and more patients reduce frequency of dialysis. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has became more and more popular which has absorbed more and more patients who come from foreign country. Unlike traditional Chinese herbal medicines taken orally, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is taken externally. The effective ingredients are beneficial for dilating blood vessels, anti-inflammation, and degrading extracellular matrixes, thus improving blood circulation so that the kidneys can get enough oxygen and blood for repairing damaged tissues.
