I find this page by accident. When I click the online consultation, a real doctor just appeared in the video. He answered all my questions and made a detailed analysis of my kidney problem.
My best friend is a IgA Nephropathy patient and he is on dialysis now. His latest report show creatinine 9 and potassium 5.3, is dialysis the choice for his condition?
Thanks for consulting us! I was moved by your friendship. Firstly, I need to know more about your friend’s illness condition.
1. How long has he been on dialysis?
2. What are the sizes of his kidneys?
3. Does he has blood or protein in urine?
4. How much is the urine output in 24 hours?
If it is convenient for you, please send us his blood test, urine test, kidney function test, so that I can provide you a specific advice.
Judging from what you said, his IgA nephropathy has developed into kidney failure. And his creatinine 9 and potassium 5.3 are quite serious, as an alternative therapy, dialysis indeed can help excrete metabolic wastes and maintain the water and electrolyte balance inside the body. However, dialysis is not the only choice for his condition, what’s more, it can do nothing to the IgA immune complexes deposited in the glomerular mesangial area and there are always some potential side effects.
At our center, our characteristic treament named Immunotherapy is highly recommended. Simply speaking, the whole procedure can be divided into 3 steps. In the beginning, Blood Purification technique is used, as it can help deal with both the middle-sized and macromolecular toxins including IgA immune complexes. Then, Western medicine will be prescribed to alleviate symptoms. Last and most important, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is used to repair the diseased kidney structures and restore kidney function. In this way, creatinine 9 and potassium 5.3 can be well controlled and dialysis avoided. Any doubts, contact us by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Best wishes to your friends!
